I was so excited when Spring actually came out for Mac, for real, but then I got it, and... I don't know how to play any games or anything on it >.<! Namely, XTA, because who didn't like TA? Seriously now. :)
So if anyone could help explain how to even just be able to use a game on it, I would be very grateful.

Welcome. As I do not have a mac I have no idea how good Spring/lobby now works on Mac. I will just assume it works okay now For XTA: Sadly there is no fancy installerthing because XTA is only played by few people. get xta here: viewtopic.php?f=48&t=21739 Just place the file in \My Documents\My Games\Spring\Games\ or ...\Spring\games\ folder (~/.spring/games/ on Linux/Unix/Mac).
The few players play pretty regular though. In lobby type /join #xta to get to the games channel. There is not a game going on at any time of day and people might be afk but eventually games always start
why not make a portable version of Spring on Mac OS X ?
For now, mostly for 2 reasons: - currently Spring.app is not bundled with any lobby, hence there is no self update system and you would have to download maps and games again inside each new bundle version. - assuming this was implemented, as a lobby developer, you would loose the ability to test your lobby on multiple versions of the engine at the same time.
I think I put everything in the right place for XTA to work, but when I press "Test Game", Spring crashes. I have a map, and the game, both in their respective positions. I'm a little unsure what to do about the "AI", so I set it to Commanders. It shows me the title screen (I guess that's what you could call it), then it immediately crashes. Help???
