  2. Type "brew install cmake" on your terminal to install cmake.

  3. Type "cd <path>" on your terminal.
  4. Follow the instructions in the "Building the Program" section of the GitHub repository to Install the character user interface.
  5. The GUI version is installed when you run "python <path>/77AVEMU/scripts/" for the first time.
