Since DDO WILL be coming to Mac, You should probobly get around to changing This page here:
Just so that ppl browsing the support thing wondering this will not just give up when they read "there are no plans to make a Mac (Apple OSX) version of DDO."
Because DDO content is created by hand, some issues cannot be fixed with a global change. We must fix these issues one-by-one by hand with the help of bug reports. This includes:
Ladder issues: please include the /loc when reporting a ladder issue
@Tolero: Is there an ETA for the next working client?
This or more next year-ish?
This would interest me too. When will we see a fixed client?
Re: outdated support article - I've pinged the support staff so they can modify that information, thank you!
Re: Next client?
That'd be..... TODAY! Posting up new info now. (the URL has changed so don't try to use the old URL as that still points at the Lamannia version. New link will be for the live servers.)
Ooh, google found it! http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=402138

And so DDO has braught the Mac Vs. Pc war to their realm...
Here's a riddle for you: What do you call people who play the game for only a day and apparently know everything?
Thank you! This is an awesome Xmas present ^^

Valve ported the Steam client to Linux (it had ported it to the Mac quite some time before).
That port has nothing to do with making any of the games available on Steam work on either the Mac or Linux... porting the actual games is the responsibility of the individual game vendor -- Turbine in this case.
One of the problems with porting to Linux is the simple question -- Which Linux? The Valve Port of the Steam Client is defined for Ubuntu only. You get to define what "defined" means... it clearly doesn't mean supported.: )
Linux is no more "common" or "standard" than it's parent, Unix(tm), was before hand. And, for that matter, one would assume that software which runs under BSD Unix(tm) (i.e. OSX) should also run under Linux. Aha, you say, but it does... what doesn't work is the GUI -- which window system are you using? OSX has its own as does each version of Linux -- virtually nobody uses X-11 any more.
Sadly, that means that Linux users are still restricted to using WINE ... which runs both DDO and LOTRO without problems (until the last release of Ubuntu broke both).

DNDLauncher.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.
This is the version to use to get on to the live servers:
You might need to control-click on it the first time and select "Open" to bypass Gatekeeper's checksum requirements -the app is not signed correctly.
If you are actually trying to get on to Lammania, this is quite a bit trickier. You will need to control-click the alpha client, select "Show Package Contents", navigate to Contents/MacOS and drag the file "DNDLauncher" into an open Terminal window. Terminal can be found in /Applications/Utilities. Alternatively you can manually type something like: "/Applications/DNDLauncher Lammania.app/Contents/MacOS/DNDLauncher" into the Terminal window, assuming you renamed the client to "DNDLauncher Lammania". Once you have the path in the Terminal window, hit the return key and it will launch. It will patch a *huge* number of files, and will crash several times doing so. Just keep relaunching it from the Terminal every time. Eventually you will be able to play on Lammania from your Mac.

I was running Mac client for Lamania for last couple of patches with no issues. Since the update 18 went in on live servers my Mac client is unable to patch itself or start. I get message "Internal Error, please contact customer support."
Anyone else experiencing this?
Oh, mac client on live servers is working fine for me... just lammania mac that appears to be broken.
