The mod is no longer in development, however
I'm working on it to turn it into a stand-alone game with proper combat + all new content

And now, something completely different: Curse episodes the indie Game! There will be a proper announcement of this (with new media etc...) but that will be later. Till that here's what will be different in the indie game compared to the mod:

- The first episode will be longer
- There will be a (properly implemented) melee combat system (this is alone will make it a completely different experience)
- New monsters... except the wormdemon

No more updates here (unless Valve releases the OS X modding tools for Half-Life 2, so I can make the Curse mod Mac compatible). Expect a new Curse episodes IndieDB profile soon...

The absolutely definitely wrong end of the dimension gate.

Are there any HL2 mods for Mac. I'm sad to say that I own a Macbook and not a PC, neither laptop nor desktop, not even netbook.

Part 2 of 2: (Read part 1 first)

RE: Are there any HL2 mods for Mac?

Why are alot of mods screwed up? The mods are looking for various files in certain places, the re-written engine is too stupid to look at the gameinfo.txt file and load the correct files...
(Add insult to injury you can't un-install the "May-2010 update". You have to manually go thru each mod and get it working again.)

The engine is too stupid to open files correctly from the previous software revision. Imagine if ALL the documents, pics, movies, etc on your machine became inaccessible, unusable after a OS update, and there was NO way to roll-back the OS to the previous version. This is what the update did to alot of mods.

Now to address YOUR question:
The point of the Mac Friendly engine update was to sell source games to Mac owners, the engine should behave (in regards to mods) the same way as it does on a PC. You should be able to play any mod as mods are just files that have been copied to the mods file folder. The mods interact with the Source engine, not your OS. (AFAIK) If that is not the case head over Steampowered forums (link above)

To install a mod: (This is for a PC, your file structure may be different, you may need to research how to run a Win32 exe on a Mac. Extract the files, manually copy to the mods folder)

Close STEAM.
Extract the files of the mod (may be a exe, a rar) to:
Steam>Steamapps>Sourcemods\(Create directory here=Name of mod here)

Example: C:Games\Steam\Steamapps\Sourcemods\MINERVA
Once files have been copied start STEAM and the mod should appear in your games listing.

PART 1 of 2

RE: Are there any HL2 mods for Mac?

First a little background before I address your question- below is some info for people that are having problems getting xyz mod to run:

May-2010 Valve to get Macintosh market share (EG: Sell Source powered games to a very small Mac game market) forced upon PC users a (unwelcome) "update" to the source engine.
I call it the:

May-2010 Macintosh Enabled, PC unfriendly, screw your existing customer base Source 2009 engine update.

This "update", (a downgrade of the engine according to the Creator of MINERVA: Metastasis which btw is a EXCELLENT MOD-So good the creator is now working for Valve) has pretty much SCREWED UP all popular mods... Mods not loading, crashing, locking up, scenes not working, actors/ scripts not working, various graphical issues, etc.

(There is a working (unofficial) patch out for MINERVA: Metastasis that address the problems caused by the May-2010 engine cough, cough "update".)

If you want a OFFICIAL PATCH, by the creator of MINERVA: Metastasis follow my posts here to his board and make some posts on his board.

Info on MINERVA: Metastasis, unofficial patch, AND info on getting OTHER mods that were affected by the May-2010 engine update here:

Got to above link to see if there is a workaround to getting your XYZ mod working again.

I just played through it. It looks gorgeous. Although the weak enemies are just re-skins with new sounds, it was fun. I think there should be a greater reward for exploration, not just opening gates. Music is tense, and its overall a decent mod.

Although I would of preferred something very unique game-play wise, I would give this a 9.
