Black Screen when launching MagicaVoxel the second time



I'm running macOS Sierra and I tried MagicaVoxel for the first time. I liked it very much, it's a very impressive software, and I look forward to using it!

However since I ran it the first time, all I get when launching it is a black screen. I tried deleting the folder and re-extracting it, as well as restarting the computer, but the problem persists.
Making new scene doesn't help either.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your time.

Hi, thanks for the replying so quickly.

But MagicaVoxel 0.97.5 is the version I actually tried and had the issue with. Is there another version available?

I'm running it on a late 2013 Macbook 13" with i5 CPU and Intel Iris onboard GPU.

hi, I got same problem, here is my solution :
  1. redownload the paogram (I updated a new version today)
  2. extract the whole folder
  3. move the "" outside the folder
  4. then move it back again
    otherwise macOS will run the app at another private location which cannot find the files in the original folder

Thanks a lot, that worked!
(weird behavior from macOS)

Fun times ahead now. :)
