The Stanley Parable is an experimental narrative-driven first person game. It is an exploration of choice, freedom, storytelling and reality, all examined through the lens of what it means to play a video game. You will make a choice that does not matter You will follow a story that has no end You will play a game you cannot win ...it's actually best if you don't know anything about it before you play it :D

Additions to v1.4 include:
-Numerous bug fixes
-Closed Captioning in English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish and Turkish
-Opening scene now skippable anytime throughout the scene
-Updated Stanley's monitor to include text
-Modified elevator to include arrows on the buttons
-Updated keypad in boss's office to include screen
-Converted all *.wav files to *.mp3 to significantly reduce file size

You sir, are a genius. This without a doubt is my favorite HL2 mod of all time. The fact that to could fit so much awesomness into such a simplistic mod is beyond me. You need to make more like this!

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

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

My hl2_osx file is not in a Steam-related folder, its inside my Half-Life 2.app, I tried pathing the run.sh file to there but it didnt work. Also,my copy of HL2 runs without steam.

Anyone with a solution?

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.
