    There’s an achievement for that. Or at least one for TDT now.

  3. Every time a MefightClub member posts a gaming link to Metafilter itself without cross-posting here, I cry a little. Inside, in my chickeny heart.

    So it is all good. It is in fact better than good.

    Only if I do the post-ganking from MeFi. ;-)

    I can’t be bothered to crosspost anything (as in doing both posts myself) and game related stuff makes more sense here, so unless brundlefly or boo_radley do some catching up and challenge my dominance of the “game” tag, I’m going to be doing my posting here rather than there.

  5. oops meant crunchland, why did brundlefly come out?

  6. Oh, you know. Because I’m awesome and all. :)

    Am I correct in that it is currently impossible to run this natively on OS X?

  7. They updated the download file and part of that included new info for OS X in the readme. I installed on my XP partition, so I haven’t tested any of this out. It seems to suggest you need HL2 installed? Or maybe grabbing that additional file from their dropbox obviates that need? Unclear.

    Steps for installing on Mac OSX, courtesy of Macocha:

    1. Extract the mod and place it in: (Home)/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/sourcemods/
    You need to add a symlink to it in your hl2 directory. Like this:
    2.a. Open Terminal
    2.b. Navigate to the hl2 dir: cd /Users/(your user name)/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/(your steam id)/half-life\ 2/
    2.c. Make symlink: ln -s ../../sourcemods/thestanleyparable/ thestanleyparable
    Now you can run your game from terminal! Just enter:
    3.a. export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/Users//Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps//half-life\ 2/bin:/Applications/Steam.app/Contents/MacOS/osx32
    3.b. ulimit -n 2048
    3.c. ./hl2_osx -steam -game thestanleyparable
    If you want nice shortcut to run the game with simple doubleclick download http://dl.dropbox.com/u/795175/The%20Stanley%20Parable.dmg and place it anywhere.

    Starting script assumes you have Steam in /Applications and you have only one steam account. To make it work with specific account (in case you have more than one) you need to manually edit the script. To do so, right click on the script and click Show Package Contents, navigate to Contents/MacOS, open run.sh in textedit and add your username there.

    In order to run from terminal you also need to set path to libraries like this:
    export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/Users//Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps//half-life\ 2/bin:/Applications/Steam.app/Contents/MacOS/osx32
    and increase files limit:
    ulimit -n 2048
    Then do the ./hl2_osx thing.
    Or simply use the launcher.

  8. Oh, wow. Thanks, nobody!
