Welcome to the wonderful world of Mac OS X application bundles.
Control click on your OS X stabdalone + select "Package Contents"
reveals a folder, "Contents"
Inside "Contents" are:
A folder, "Resources", containing--
A folder, "Mac OS", containing--
Revolution [your standalone]
So if your standalone on other platforms expects to find the support
folder in the same folder in which the standalone resides, your
folder must be in the Mac OS folder on OS X.
I deal with this by using a generalized search handler that looks for
support folders in both locations...among others.
