Installing the Files

Include Files

Navigate to the /ThirdParty/DiscordRpcLibrary folder in your project’s plugins folder and check if you already have the Include folder.

Renaming the include folder to Include

If you have this folder move on to the next step.

If you do not have this folder follow the “Copying files to Compile the plugin” section.

OSX Build Files

Create a new folder named Mac:

Creating the mac folder

Navigate to the /osx-dynamic/lib folder from the files extracted earlier. Simply copy and paste the libdiscord-rpc.dylib file into the Mac folder created in the last step.

Conclusion

Your Discord Rich Presence enabled game will now successfully compile and package for the Mac platform!

Packaging for the Mac platform is not possible from a Windows machine as Apple’s XCode licensing allows only official Apple products to package for their platform.

Regardless of this having the plugins setup and configured correctly will prevent headaches later down the road if you choose to deploy your game on the Mac platform.
