[split] Install Custom Story Problems

To be honest I am very bad with computers. I cant seem to figure out how to get custom stories. I downloaded one and decompressed it using WinZip. I don't know what to do after that. I bought amnesia through the GameStop website and I can't find my custom stories folder. Any help would be much appreciated.

After you download one, unzip it. After that, cut/copy the folder to the Amnesia directory like so.
Amnesia - The Dark Descent\redist\custom_stories\

And you're done.

What is the directory of your Amnesia game?

I bought the game from GameStop's online store, I have a shortcut to the desktop for amnesia. there is a amnesia section under documents but there is no redist folder in it. that is the best I got Sorry for not knowing, but thanks for your patience.

Right click your Amnesia shortcut at the desktop. Left click properties. There should be a path in the Target box. Give me the path.

Go to the specified path. There should be a redist file.
