I fixed the “can’t send text” problem in the client for the Mac and Linux versions. There are still some text problems that only show up in non-Windows versions, but I was able to log in and play for a bit without much trouble.
Though I have it working on my own machine, I haven’t the faintest idea whether the client will run on other Macs. I’ve created an application bundle and compiled it in a way that it should supposedly run on OSX 10.5 and 10.6, but I only have 10.6, so no idea whether it will work. And, since my machine is set up as a developer machine I have no idea whether a “normal” user’s machine will have all the libraries it needs. That’s the trouble with being a Mac “noob”.
Version 0.14 of the client for Mac is now available for download. Hopefully there’s someone who can try it and let me know the result.
Well i’m not a knowledgeable mac user but i tried to load it on our macbook and i got this error message. Its very possible that just madly clicking at things was the wrong approach!
