I used the auto update function, but to bad there was no warning that the PPC support was dropped, so after installing I got nothing on my trusty G4 PPC.
Now searching for v1.3.7

PPC support has been dropped. Get real, the last PPC mac was released 5 years ago.
I dont think xcode 4 allows me to compile for PPC anyways. If it does the next update will have support for PPC.

I still use my PPC, because I play the Medal of Honor Spearhead and Breakthrough with my clan and our own server. And those games doesn't work right on the new Intel Mac's. This is why I still use the PPC.

I didn't notice that it says 10.7 is required so I still downloaded it because I saw "Intel/PPC". Someone needs to fix the requirements please.

Amazing client. User friendly very fast updates and by far has the most features for any mac client. Great job to those working on this application 5* by my book!

BlackFire is the best Xfire client for Mac that I have used, and I have used all of them. Even when there are bugs, the Developer is really good and he fixes them quickly.

This is one of the best xfire for mac yet. I love the futures that other xfires for mac lack.

Great job!!!
