    Hi Guys

    For some reason i can't get Steam to work on Lion?

    It will not respond and now it says "You can't open the application Steam because PowerPC applications are no longer supported"

    So how do i fix this?

    Many Thanks

    Mikey

    Works fine here. Steam shouldn't be a Powerpc app and require Rosetta, try re-downloading and installing so you have the latest version.

    Works fine on both my Macs, and it never was a UB or PPC app, as PowerPC Macs were never supported by Valve, so that's a bit odd. Re-download the Steam installer. Steam is a bit wonky at the best of times anyway.

    Steam works fine on my end.

    Steam can't be a PPC application for obvious reasons.
