From the games standpoint, "Stanley quit unexpectedly." is pretty great!

Script cannot find the hl2_osx binary.
Is HL2 installed?

YES IT IS!! I know I have the hl2_osx, b/c i found it and ran it.
How do I get this to find it?!

It keeps telling me (even though it was working a few days ago) that I don't have HL2 installed plus other error messages. I am re-downloading/installing to see if that helps.

I have a Let's Play of this on my channel if you're interested :) Youtube.com

Why won't it work? I just don't understand.

OK. I've done some digging and as Valve has kindly decided to move some of the file locations since the latest version of the Stanley parable was released it means the "run.sh" file needs modifying. you need to open the run.sh file in a text editor and scroll down a little to where the "#location of the binary" and change the line that says GAMEROOT="$HOME/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/$STEAMUSERID/half-life 2" to GAMEROOT="$HOME/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Half-life 2"

This is as far as i have got, yes it now finds the hl2_osx file but it still fails to launch and complains about not being able to find a loading background .vtf file. which isnt in the folder it should be.

Just to be crystal clear about the method so far:

right click The Stanley Parable app and click "show package contents"

go to Contents/MacOS/run.sh

open this in a text editor

find the line of code that says "#location of the binary" and replace the line below with
GAMEROOT="$HOME/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Half-life 2"

I've found a solution to this.
There's an issue in the gameinfo.txt, so download this modified one: Pastebin.com and put it in Contents/Resources/thestanleyparable

So, the game opened fine for me, and I can play it...to a point. I cannot click any buttons ingame. Not the elevator, or the keypad, or any other buttons. Help?

whenever I try to play the game (not though steam) I get this error

MountAppFilesystem() failed: SteamMountAppFilesystem (220,4294967295,0xb5aaed78) failed with error 116: Cache needs repair

and whenever I try to play the game though steam I click the play button and nothing happens.

I have a late 2011 macbook pro and my osx is mavericks.

Every time I try to launch it, it asks me for my Steam User ID. I always enter it but nothing happens then! :/

all of the files that need to be edited in order to get this to work are locked! Any way to access them?

I can honestly say this doesn't work for the Mac anymore. I mean, I know the Stanley Parable HD is better in almost every way, but they completely changed the train station ending, mainly because the game was based on Portal 2 instead of Half-Life 2. I want to play the original version too, but I can't do that because the SteamPipe transition broke this port. Can someone fix it please?
