So, without any further ado, let’s get started and install Steam on your Mac!!!
I ran the test on Mavericks 10.9.2 using Wine Engine 1.7.14No Flicker (the latest version) and Wrapper version 2.5.12 You can also view this tutorial in action on our You Tube channel.
Archived from groups: alt.games.half-life (More info? )Hi, I have been trying to play DOD and steam keeps trying to update but nevergets past 0%.
If you have an Ethernet cable plugged into your computer, unplug it.
You can also disable the adapter completely in Windows. Right-click the network adapter in use and select Disable to disable it. Launch Steam and, instead of attempting to contact the Steam servers for a period of time and failing, it should immediately notice that the network connection is unavailable. These steps won’t help if games aren’t fully updated or there’s an update for Steam available.
To run a game without launching Steam, open Windows Explorer, and navigate to the game’s folder in your Steam directory.
Assuming you installed Steam to the default location, the game’s folder should be at the following directory: Locate the game’s file and try double-clicking it.
Wine is definitely one of the best ways to run Windows software on a Mac.
It has a large following and plenty of support and ways to find what you need and it is constantly being updated.
Update 3-20-2014: It looks like the “No Config Server” error has been resolved.
Running a test install, I was able to successfully go through original tutorial steps without any errors.
Not only that, but you can download several different versions at the same time and the app manages them for you and once downloaded, you can choose whichever version you want to use.
