If you regard basic instructions to the the tools you released as a kind and benevolent move.. OK.

its not enough, the wiki's are a start and cover most things even to a basic level, but are incomplete and don't mention some of the smaller details

RE: Penumbra flashlight in Amnesia?

It looks like to get the flashlight working properly, we may need to put it into a full conversion mod, that way we can script it as the main lantern without affecting the default game
(amnesia wont be the same with a flashlight in the 1800's)

This way, any custom story or map that uses the flashlight will need a "Flashlight mod" and essentially run the games that way through the 'custom stories'
Basically, the flashlight mod will host any custom maps wanting to use a flashlight instead of a lantern

It will save having multiple copies of the same flashlight for every mod, it will also keep the amnesia folder clean, and any updates will be easy

This must be the first real mod to Amnesia! Hope everything works out!

RE: Penumbra flashlight in Amnesia?

I'll be honest, I'm having trouble setting up a full conversion mod, its just not working like it should

The wiki, is of no real use at all and doesn't cover what is needed other then making your own init file and running that
the problem is how to write the directories

It feels as though they're trying to distance themselves from the community. Thomas won't even accept my friend request on Facebook!

On the other hand they may just be hard at work on The Dark Swarm.

I agree, other then tech support, I do have a feeling they want to avoid the community and helping out as members, is it to much to ask for some spare time to give something back to the community

It's them who we need to help us make this flashlight
