Steam

Version 4.0

Multiplayer and communications platform for gaming.

Steam overview

Steam is a digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer and communications platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute a large number of games and related media entirely over the Internet, from small independent efforts to larger, more popular games. Steam is set apart from similar services primarily by its community features, completely automated game update process, and its use of in-game functionality.

Instantly access your favorite games

  • Over 1,100 games are available to purchase, download, and play from any computer. Check out the new releases, indie hits, casual favorites and everything in between.

Join the Steam Community

  • Find someone to play with, meet up with friends, connect with groups of similar interests, and host and join chats, matches, and tournaments.

Chat with your friends while gaming

  • See when your friends are online or playing games and easily join the same games together. Chat with your buddies, or use your microphone to communicate in any game.

Automatic game updates

  • Hunting for patches and downloading from unorganized Web sites is so twentieth-century. On Steam, your games stay up-to-date by themselves. No hassles.

And now it's updated to v020 (164158817). I wish MacUpdate would sort this out. There is no v4.0.

Version what? Today's actual current Steam version is v020 (1633550265). I dug into the package contents and found the 'CFBundleVersion' is 4.0. But that's NOT the app version. *Confusion* - - (Why am I here again sorting out Steam version numbers?) - - In any case, update from within Steam and you'll be fine.

Today's "2.0" = 1613176728 [I'll stop now. The actual version number of Steam can be found in its About box. And yes, Steam's version numbering system is dysfunctional and stupid.]

I keep getting emails notifying me of 'access to my Steam account from another computer'. However I have no Steam account and never have had. Contacting them seems to be impossible without-you guessed it- logging into my non-existant account. I have looked and looked but there seems to be no way of contacting these people. Any ideas friends? :/

'1596217132' = Current Steam version. Why do they make this difficult? (o_0) Just 'Check for updates...' under the Steam menu to stay up-to-date.

The current version of Steam is '1591251555'. It's from June 3, 2020. You can find this by visiting 'About Steam' under its 'Steam' menu. The best way to keep Steam up-to-date is to 'Check for updates...' under the same menu. Steam continues to be amateurish about its development and numbering system for Mac. But at least it works.

Steam on Mac is as good as it is on other platforms, which is to say that it is sufficient. It's decent at everything from downloading games or other applications, their downloadable content (DLC), or helping you keep contact with friends. It still has some trouble keeping the messenger window out of the way, and it isn't very helpful finding games that actually will run on the machine you have. Lately, they've had warnings about what won't work on macOS Catalina. When I view my queue, the live browser doesn't work, saying that the browser is lacking. Considering that I've never had this problem on the Windows version of Steam, I'm thinking that they need to work on a multi-platform solution. They always have more work to do.

Trash. I've on and off been trying to use this app on mac for a year now. It won't even open. I get a "failed to load Steamui.dylib" error literally every single time. I've reinstalled it 10 times alone today.I've tried every dingle thing online for a fix and this problem can never be resolved. I've seen people asking for a fix on this issue for over 7 years now with zero assistance whatsoever. It's either "uninstall and reinstall" or "restart the system." Absolutely nothing works and that's pathetic. I absolutely despise this app on mac.

It works for me. Yes it doesn't have all the features that the Windows version does, but it has enough for you to collect and play your games. (Whether they're per-steam-license actually yours or not is a whole other ball o' wax.)
