help with the hpl 2 editor

Hey guys I'm just starting to use the mapping program for this game.

Now this may seem like a dumb question, but how would I go about testing my map?

Also, is there any specific folder to save it in? (i have it through steam if that matters)

RE: help with the hpl 2 editor

You have to set up the custom story.
C>ProgramFiles>Steam>SteamApps>Common>AmnesiaTheDarkDescent>Custom_stories.
You can take a look at the wiki to figure out how to set it up: http://wiki.frictionalgames.com/hpl2/amn...stom_story

From there, you just go into the Custom Stories menu on the main Amnesia menu.

You can type [br] in your .lang file if you want a break. Otherwise, it'll automatically put it into multiple lines.

Here is script for the Note -->


<LANGUAGE>

<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">

<Entry Name="Description">You had moving in to a new house you bought. but you didnt knew the house's background....</Entry>

</CATEGORY>


<CATEGORY Name="Journal">
<Entry Name="Note_Test1_Name"> I Wont Forgive YOU!</Entry>
<Entry Name="Note_Test1_Text"> I WONT FORGIVE YOU!</Entry>
</CATEGORY>

</LANGUAGE>



Btw you have to change to name of the note
