LANG files.

Hi everyone, Ive been meaning to add notes to my level, but I dont understand how Im supposed to use/make a custom .lang file. Ive read the tutorial, but it isnt specific enough on what Im supposed to do!

As you can tell, Im a pretty n00b scripter, so your help is much appreciated!!

Sure i help you its easy when you get started for that Smile

Believe its easier to script lang.file then hps..

Okay first:

Make extra_english.lang file and when you done it check first this: Press ALT then -> Tools -> Folder Options -> View then unmark this " Hide extensions for known filetypes"

Second: Make example: in your editor and choose note_generic or note_letter or whatever then Name that "Note_Test01"
Then go to Entity tab then write that NoteText field ONLY Test01 and save.

Finally: Example for my map:

<LANGUAGE>
<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
<Entry Name="Description">You wake up an unknown castle you must escape quickly before darkness will kill you!</Entry> <- Important to add for basic stuff.. On your level
</CATEGORY>
<CATEGORY Name="Journal">

<Entry Name="Note_Test01_Name">Add name of your note</Entry>
<Entry Name="Note_Test01_Text">Add your text</Entry>
</CATEGORY> <- Important to add the end
</LANGUAGE> <- Important to add the end
Copy that..

I hope you understand Smile

Ask more if you get trouble.

Just one thing, the extra_english.lang file, where does that go? Do I make it inside the Language configuration folder, or just in its old folder, this part is confusing me the most! D:

RE: LANG files.

You place the .lang folder in your custom story folder.

Like this:

C:/Program blabl/labla/Amnesia - the dark descent/redist/custom story/[yourstorynamefolder]/[in here]

so go to your custom story folder and just paste it in there.

(C:/Program Files/Amnesia - The Dark Descent/redist/Custom Story/Horror Puzzle Survival/extra_english.lang <- this is mine)

or if you have the steam version.
I thought it was this but i'm not sure.

(C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Amnesia - the dark descent/redist/Custom Story/Horror Puzzle Survival/extra_english.lang <- steam version I believe)


Please correct me if i'm wrong.

and good luck btw ^^

RE: LANG files.

Hey guys, I am having a similar problem so I decided to post here instead of making a whole new thread. I have created the .lang file and I have placed it in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\amnesia the dark descent\custom_stories\storyroot

Now, I have the steam version, but I don't have a redist directory, could that be what is messing me up? Thank you for any help in advance.

Just in case, here is the grit of the lang file I made:

<LANGUAGE>
<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
<Entry Name="Description">Short entry.</Entry>
</CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>

RE: LANG files.

Yes, there is a custom stories folder, and I did place the lang file in a folder I created in there, but I still don't get the description when I load amnesia. I have never had a redist directory though.
