Cannot open ROMs in OSX

Post by Apollo30 » Mon Jul 17, 2017 7:54 pm

Hi, I' using SNES9X 1.53 (113) with my MacBook Air and OSX 10.12.5 (Sierra).

My first problem ist that OSX doesn't want to start SNES9X. I have to rightclick it in the programs' folder and manually open it. After a security message I with a warning i can start SNES9X.
All options without any loaded ROMs are available, e.g., all options. When I want to load a ROM by File/Open ROM image the selection window for ROMs doesn't open and almost all options nor are greyed out. I also cannot close SNES9X - I have to do the forced shutdown procedure.

The ROM files I try to load (but I don't come so far) are ok, I used them with older OSX versions and with my Windows PC.
I assume that the security rules of my OSX block something, even when I allowed the program to start.

Can anybody help?
