Locked Door Tutorial - Mulledk19

Okay, I have a question about making a locked door.

So... I followed Mulledk19's tutorial on the Wiki, and everything worked fine except one little thing. When I pick up the key all it says is: Picked Up

It won't actually say: Picked up Awesome Key

I've checked for errors in the extra_english.lang but nothing is wrong, any ideas?

<LANGUAGE>
    <RESOURCES>
    </RESOURCES>
    <CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
            <Entry Name="Description">My first level![br]This is awesome :D</Entry>
    </CATEGORY>
    <CATEGORY Name="Inventory">
            <ENTRY Name="ItemName_thekey1">Awesome Key</Entry>
            <ENTRY Name="ItemDesc_thekey1">An awesome key</Entry>
    </CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>


In the map editor, I put thekey1 in CustomSubTypeItemName.

Anything I'm doing wrong? Tell me if I need to be more specific in an area.

Currently working on: "Awake"
Progress: ~5%

Did you try playing your map through Custom Story in the main menu? If you start directly via the dev_user setup in the wiki it won't use any extra language files and thus it doesn't show up.

Having this problem too, I tried putting the code into my extra_english.lang file in my custom story but still nothing showing up on the key.

Your file is invalid

This XML document is not valid!

The 'ENTRY' start tag on line 8 does not match the end tag of 'Entry'. Line 8, position 57.

Change ENTRY to Entry in the starting tag.

Like so:
<LANGUAGE>
    <RESOURCES>
    </RESOURCES>
    <CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
            <Entry Name="Description">My first level![br]This is awesome :D</Entry>
    </CATEGORY>
    <CATEGORY Name="Inventory">
            <Entry Name="ItemName_thekey1">Awesome Key</Entry>
            <Entry Name="ItemDesc_thekey1">An awesome key</Entry>
    </CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>

My "Entry" lines were already the correct case, still no dice.

Post your language file.

This XML document seems to be valid!

How do you play your map, and what do you put in the CustomSubTypeItemName?

What does the C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Amnesia\Main\hpl.log say about it?
