Hi all, Steams new update loads me a black login screen, so I reverted to a previous steam version. I inserted a .cfg file into the steam root directory, as well as added a few command lines to prevent the steam updater. People everywhere say this works, but PlayonMac launches a "failed to load steamui.dll" error and closes. Here is my debug report, any help would be very appreciated!

Looks like steam didn't shutdown cleanly, scheduling immediate update check
