Running the most current version of Mountain Lion. It seems that there is a Mac Client from what I can tell. When I click to download the client, the left square states that the client is already installed. If I click on it, nothing happens, or a 2nd window opens "About:Blank". I've run a few disk searches and cannot find anything related to the desura client.

Is there another place I can download the client? Or am I completely an idiot that thinks there is a Mac client ....

There is no Mac client right now, we just offer standalone Mac downloads for our Mac supported titles.

if you follow my Instructions step by step, it will work.

maybe someone is interested in debugging this.

I've created a branch with simple Mac OS X support:

if you have some experience with cmake, there should be no problem with compiling it on Mac OS X 10.7+ (Xcode generator is working, but running out of Xcode is problematic, please use makefile instead, because the make install step will create an app bundle).

Everything after the login isn't working (the app simply crashes and it has to be build without CEF support, -DBUILD_CEF=OFF is the flag for cmake). Also there aren't some Mac OS X specific methods implemented (ObjC++ knowledge required).

If somebody is interested, he should just write me.

If that is so, why put "Desura is installed! Let's play!" on the button instead of the correct information, confuse people and send them digging through piles of forums?

that's a bug of the desura site, which should be reported. I will do this in a second

We only added Mac game support a few months ago and never changed the website to notify people they have to download / install those games direct.

that change is coming as part of our redesign which is scheduled to be deployed in a few months
