Screenshots
Steam is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer, and communications platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute games and related media online, from small independent developers to larger software houses. In October 2012, Valve expanded the service to include non-gaming software. Steam provides the user with installation and automatic management of software across multiple computers, as well as community features such as friends lists and groups, cloud saving, and in-game voice and chat functionality. The software provides a freely available application programming interface (API), Steamworks, that developers can take advantage of to integrate many of Steam's functions within their software products, including copy protection, networking and matchmaking, in-game achievements and micro-transactions, and support for user-created content through Steam Workshop.


Personal Notes:
As the other Windows steam ports are outdated now because of the new update on Dec 3, which causes all wine engines below 1.7.8 to crash whenever steam logged in, I decided to make this port.

The purpose of this port is to give a wrapper to download your games in, apply a no-cd patch to the game, and then put the game into its specific wrapper (For example, I download Dishonored through steam, take the game files out of the Windows Steam wrapper, apply a no-cd patch, and then put it into a wrapper that was made specifically for Dishonored).

DO NOT INSTALL GAMES INTO THIS WRAPPER AND THEN PLAY THEM. THEY MOST LIKELY WILL NOT WORK.

Game files can be found at C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/common


My System Specs:
- OS: Mac OSX 10.9 "Mavericks"
- CPU: 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
- RAM: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
- Video:    NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 512 MB
- Disk Space:   500 MB


Known Issues:
None!

Installation:
Download the wrapper, double click it and login to steam :)

I know, that is what happened with the recent update. That won't happen anymore though with this wrapper.
thanks
The wrapper kept closing upon opening when I first downloaded it. After fiddling around for a bit I got it to work by going into the Screen Options and having Wine override the Screen Settings as well as unchecking "Use Mac Driver instead of X11"

Really? It works just fine for me. It does take a few seconds but it does start up no problems. Could you try it again? With mac driver enabled and screen settings to automatic? If it is still not working, then give me a Debug Log and I will see if i can fix it.
I'm new to this so i downloaded the steam wrapper but every time i try to open it, it says its from an identified developer

That is because wineskin is not recognized in Gatekeeper, which is a Mac feature that tries to prevent unauthorized software from being on your computer. To enable the port to work, go to system preferences app, click security, and then click "allow apps from anywhere". The wrapper should work then.
Opens and then shuts down >.> what is goin on?
Never mind, made a new way to make it from scratch, much easier... check it out here:

I am running 10.9.1 and haven't been able to use 'Windows' Steam since the beginning of this month, I had posted in the other Steam (Windows Version) Port on this site, but nothing came up, and then I saw this. It claims to work with Mavericks, and It sure does! I am now able to finish downloading and Start playing the games I have missed playing.
Seriously well done to ipickert55. I tried remaking and tweaking wrappers, but I don't really have any idea what I'm doing.
Thank you so, so much. I was trying to figure it out on my own and having no luck. (I'm using a late-2008 unibody Macbook, running OS 10.8.5.)
I've actually gotten a good amount of games working with this, nice port!
How do I get to the files of the games I download on the PC Steam Client?

They should be in the program files inside the wrapper, inside the SteamApps/common folder
Yeah, if you didn't use that terrible hosting service called filefactory, that'd be great.
