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As the other Windows steam ports are outdated now because of the new update on Dec 3, which causes all wine engines below 1.7.8 to crash whenever steam logged in, I decided to make this port.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

would this work for multiplayer pc games? could you launch wrapper through steam and play multiplayer games?
bakeybk: I don't know if you're responding to my Mass Effect comment, but if you were:

The short answer is: maybe, but don't count on it. I think the best way to find out if you can play a given multiplayer game with this wrapper is to just try launching whatever game you want to play through this Wrapper's version of Steam, and see how far you can get (that's what I did). If it works, great! If not, you'll probably have to find a wrapper for that specific game (or use something like Bootcamp or a Windows VM).

As the description says, this wrapper was not designed for actually playing Steam games, and it's really unlikely that it ever will be (since that would require writing individual ports for basically every game in Steam). I've only tried it with two games (both single player), and it was dumb luck that even one of them worked.
So I have the new Civilization installed and located, how do I actually play it? It won't open with wine
For some reason Steam doesn't download any of my games. I click download, and it just refreshes the page. I am running Yosemite, could this be the problem?
no longer on mediafire so hwo do I download it?
