How to install UZEM emulator on Mac OS X El Capitan 2016

in order to make the emulator work on the Mac:

1. download SDL2 here (get the latest):
https://www.libsdl.org/download-2.0.php

select to download the Source Code:
SDL2-2.0.4.zip

once downloaded read the INSTALL.txt file inside the folder

open terminal, go inside the SDL2 folder and run the following 3 commands:

sudo ./configure
sudo make
sudo make install

now download the latest UZEBOX software on GITHUB here:

https://github.com/Uzebox/uzebox

open the following file:
uzebox-master/tools/uzem/avr8.h

change line 48 to:

#include </usr/local/include/SDL2/SDL.h>

then go into the folder:

uzebox-master/tools/uzem/

and from the terminal type:

sudo make

that's it!

now from the folder uzebox-master/tools/uzem/

to lunch a game you can type for example:

uzem loderunner.uze

you can download the games .uze from the forum on http://uzebox.org

_______

the problem is if you try to MAKE uzem from the GITHUB downloaded folder directly it will give you an error since the file avr8.h is pointing to the wrong SDL2 directory

:D

Thanks a lot for the procedure!

Do you think you could add it to the wiki if I create you an account?
