there is no native client for MacOSx, webaom which runs on Java works in MacOSx, if you want to develop a native client for MacOSx you can start by reading the UDP API definition on the wiki and when you are ready for some testing add it to here (required) and here (optional) and register your client here (required).

AoM can be run in wine under linux though, isn't there a wine version for MacOS? Or any other emulator for windows applications?

BYe!

I think wine does/did not work on MacOS, therfore qemu-useremulation was built, but it's not straight forward to get this working.

There's a half-decent Sun Java VM with Web Start for Mac OS X, although it's not (in my opinion) reliable. Wine for Mac OS X is sort of an adventure in its own right, and I don't know if it can run AOM. (Also, if you're not running an Intel-based board, you're not going to be able to use Wine at all; Darwine is what you want, but it's still not ready for casual use.)

The client I'm working on will work on any Mac with Python and wxMac, but it's not quite finished yet.
