I am using a Mac to run this environment and whenever I try running this project fresh from LibGDX it will not load saying it cannot load the image.

"If we just run it, you will get an error: Couldn't load file: badlogic.jpg. You have to edit your Run Configurations first: Select as working directory PATH_TO_YOUR_PROJECT\drop\android\assets.​" -https://github.com/libgdx/libgdx/wiki/A-simple-game​

In order to achieve this just click on the arrow next to the green run button then select run configurations...> Arguments > Working Directory > Other > Folder which contains the assets.

Note that for our case, it would be "core/assets", since we aren't supporting Android.
