Question Custom Stories not working...

I recently downloaded Through the Portal and Tenebris Lake custom stories. I finished Amnesia The Dark Descent on a desktop and recently installed it on my laptop. I though, since I had already finished it and didn't want to do it again, to download some custom stories.

Through the Portal, upon opening, leaves a mouse trail, the select profile screen is open with the main menu, and the game crashes with this (FatalError.jpeg listed).

Tenebris Lake upon opening stops working and immediately shuts down.

Both of these have been properly downloaded (as far as I know). I've tried re-extracting the files and putting them back in to Amnesia's redist folder, but it hasn't worked.

Of the other custom stories I have installed, it is only these two that have failed to work. Rain and White Night, the other two, work fine.

Please help?

RE: Custom Stories not working...

That error means that it cannot find the main_init.cfg file, which as far as I know would be in the config folder - or there is an error in it.

Going off memory, since they are full conversion mods (again, memory), I think they are supposed to not be in the redist folder, but in a folder inside the redist folder.

So, the directory would be:
C:/Program Files(x86)/Amnesia - The Dark Descent/redist/tenebris_lake/

COULD be wrong, because I have never installed them.
Other problems could be with your resources.cfg file not being pointed to from the main_init.cfg, or just something wrong with the main_init.cfg folder.

RE: Custom Stories not working...

Try opening the "resources.cfg" file in your Amnesia root directory, and add this line at the bottom:
PHP Code: (Select All)
<Directory Path="/custom_stories" AddSubDirs="true" /> 
That might help.

Edit: Oh right, they're mods. Whale den.

^As Mudbill said as well, but going off memory, these are full conversions, so they may not use that directory specifically.

Edit: But would still be a good idea. Just in case you download normal Custom Stories as well Smile

RE: Custom Stories not working...

Okay so the resources.cfg file is in wn_config folder, whereas main_init.cfg is in the config folder. Would i need to move anything or what?
The attachments show what I mean...look at the directories...

No, wn_config is the config folder for White Night, which is another mod. The original resources.cfg file lies directly in the Amnesia directory.

RE: Custom Stories not working...

Okay, I solved the problem.
All that had happened was that when I extracted the files, not all of them moved (which I thought had happened). That was why both games wouldn't work-not all files were in the redist folder. I uninstalled that previous program and got WINrar to use.
All is good
