I did : twice.
that's why I'm asking for help...

Edit n°1
I may have an idea about what's going wrong : on the version which is working the "CoH" app 5,08Go, while the version which is not working is only 483,2 Mo. This might mean the download failed... I'm gonna try again, and again.

Edit n°2
I found an other thing that might have got in the way : since the macOS Sierra update, Terminal is not authorizing every app to work properly, you need to enter "Terminal" in search spotlight, then enter "sudo spctl --master-disable" and your password to disable Gatekeeper. Then get to "Preference system", "security", unlock the lock if it's on using your password again, and choose to autorize the apps downloaded from "everywhere". Then it should work. I'm re-downloading the wineskin client and updating it. I'll tell you if it work. :)

Edit n°3
One of the problem is that the download get stuck in the middle very often of the Mac version. For instance it's now 59/120. And not moving. Yet, it doesn't take that long or get stuck for the PC version. I'm afraid that's not something I can do something about. Maybe the solution is for you guys to make sure the download doesn't get stuck for the users. Like I said, I'm not expert, but what can possibly be done for that ? Please :)

Edit n°4
The download is now stuck 2/61...


Edit n°5
I must be the most unlucky hero of Paragon Chat : now I have an error message : "Error Computing MD5"... starting to get a bit frustrated... :(

Edit 6
My "CoH" app is now 5,06Go which mean 0,02Go is still missing. Updating and updating again...

There's a new Island Rum release today, downloadable here, that is more robust with handling the download mirrors.

I've followed the installation instructions and Island Rum is just repeatedly telling me "Scanning...Error loading manifest". 

- Island Rum build version: 033020181
- Apps are both in /Applications, and that's where the path is set
- OS version: Mojave (10.14.4)
- Turned off Gatekeeper, set System Prefs to accept apps from any developer, and rebooted just in case
- no firewall active
- I am able to get to the manifest XML file location from my web browser

Any advice or suggestions deeply appreciated.

Sorry for the dumb question but I am not tech savvy at all - How do I set System Prefs to accept apps from any developer?

Pop up states "Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the app store and identified developers."
I set 3 different browsers and none allow this download.

I appreciate any help you can afford!

Thank you!

The manifest site might just be overloaded, try again a bit later.

And Gatekeeper is located in Security preferences.

Aye.  Followed that advice to download Rum.  Got the Tequila working in bootcamp.  Thought I'd try and get the Mac version working.

*fingers crossed.

It sounds like you just downloaded the Wineskin product.  That doesn't do a lot if it isn't set up correctly.

Download this modified version first:  http://telstar.eekstudio.com/macclient-wineskin.zip

Extract it, drop the application into the Applications folder.  Then load Island Rum first, and point it at the Applications folder.  It should begin downloading the game client.
