urgent thesis help - Can't create text on notes & Custom Story doesn't show up

Hi!
I'm new to this and really need some help. I'm using a custom map in Amnesia for my Thesis, so it's super urgent.

The biggest problem is:
I can't make any text show up on the note. It's a note_paper01_1.
I've followed the tutorials:
http://wiki.frictionalgames.com/hpl2/tut...omakenotes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfgFEG4TSCE

it didn't work. I really tried everything.
Then I thought MAYBE it's because I have used this guide:
http://wiki.frictionalgames.com/hpl2/amn...evenvguide

to set up the dev. environment. Maybe it isn't working because I'm not running the game as a custom story, which everyone seems to do.

So I tried to set up the map as a custom story like this:
http://wiki.frictionalgames.com/hpl2/amn...stom_story


It didn't work. I tried changing back all the things I changed when setting up the dev.env.
I also tried running the game as a different user. I even tried re-installing the game and starting from scratch with all the settings.
Still doesn't work. My map doesnt show in the "Custom Stories" menu.

PLEASE help me, I'm getting desperate. I really don't know what's wrong.
The note problem is the most important for me to solve...

It's something wrong with your .lang file. Send it here so I can see it

Sure, here it is.

The code is:

<LANGUAGE><CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">      <Entry Name="Description">         ...      </Entry></CATEGORY><CATEGORY Name="Journal">    <Entry Name="Note_Note1_Name">Note from desk</Entry>    <Entry Name="Note_Note1_Text">Blablablablablabal</Entry></CATEGORY></LANGUAGE>

haha every one makes mistakes ^^ I would suggest using Notepad++ or genie when scripting and remember that when you make a .hps or .lang you choose all files and then type .lang or .hps in the end ^^
