Solved: 1 Year, 9 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days, 3 Hours, 22 Minutes, 48 Seconds ago No "Hpl2 editor" tab in launcher

Alright so I am running Amnesia from steam.
I downloaded the Hpl2 installer and it went through its install process successfully.
I then opened steam and opened the launcher from there and got this

After not seeing anything there I decided to take a look in the frictional games folder in application support and it looks like nothing has installed as you can see here:

Am I just stupid and missing something obvious or is my computer stupid?
Any help is appreciated.

I don't have a mac but I don't think it is supposed to add a new menu to launcher. Try to see see where your game is installed. Editor suit's programs should be there.

Well the read me says "To run the tools simply run Amnesia and choose the tools from the "Editor Suite" tab in the game Launcher."
Not completely sure where its installed since I did it all through Steam

Check your steam/steamapps/common/Amnesia folder. See if you have a level editor, model viewer, level viewer, .. in there (I don't have a mac myself; this is just the structure on the windows version).

It looks like the editor suite installer didn't install things to the correct location. Do you have any other copies of Amnesia installed anywhere? As the installer finds and installed the tools in the first it can find (as told by Mac OS X). To check if it installed correctly look in your "Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/amnesia the dark descent" folder in your home directory.

There should be an "EditorSuite.plist" file there. If that file IS there make sure you are connected to the internet so steam pulls down updates, as there was a patch released to support loading of this file in the launcher.

I am using 1.0.1.2.
I tried reinstalling Amnesia.. no dice and I dont have any other versions of Amnesia around. I tried searching for a file it says it installed and nothing came up with spotlight at least. Also there is nothing in the steam apps folder so I am thinking its not even installing anything at all.
WHAT DO?

I don't have an "EditorSuite.plist" file in that folder. I did a systemwide search to be on the safe side. Couldn't find an "EditorSuite.plist" anywhere on my mac.

Does the installer do more than put files / folders in the amnesia folder? If not, then maybe it might be better to forgo the installer and just bundle the editor files with a readme that tells us where to put them.

I'm going to look into this some more.. And try do a clean setup on another system.. I may throw up the manual ZIP as well, it's just more "challenging" especially for non-steam users. (Right click, show package contents.. navigate to Contents/Resources. blah blah)

OK, it seems that Mac OS X is giving the installer incorrect information as to the location of Amnesia (and the type).

Try running these commands in the Terminal application.

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/amnesia\ the\ dark\ descent
touch Launcher.app

And then re-run the hpl2 tool installer.

If that still doesn't work, then you can simply "move" the tool files as they were incorrectly installed inside the Launcher application bundle in Contents/Resources folder instead.

Simply right click Launcher.app and do a show contents and move these files so they are next to the Launcher (not inside it)

LevelEditor.app
MapViewer.app
MaterialEditor.app
ModelEditor.app
ModelViewer.app
ParticleEditor.app
