Other - A Short Custom Story (Patched)

"I haven't been able to sleep well for a while. Maybe tonight will be different."


The following is from Other's ModDB page located here.
You can download Other from ModDB or this MediaFire link.

December 21st

"I have released a YouTube video! My explanation of Other, where I go through some stuff and explain other stuff (and point out more stuff)! Check it out below, pretty cool, eh?"

Also these people played Other too:

Also Cry played it during his livestream, http://www.twitch.tv/cryaotic/b/302289858 (around 0:30:30)


December 10th

"Other is a custom story that I started working on December 3rd and finished up a week later. Other was created in reference to Cry making a comment on his co-hosted live-stream ("Late Night with Cry and Russ") about there being no

stories
. As such I got to work and in the spirit of the 24-hour Amnesia Custom Map Contest I wanted to only put 24 hours into making the map (the rest of the time was spent waiting for testers to give feedback). Also I found it as fun way of relearning the Amnesia scripting that I haven't worked with in a few months.

"Other is a very short story-based map, and when I say very short I mean 6-8 minutes max. As such I would like you, the player, to take your time and interact with the world around you, uncover the story the best you can, and in the end wonder what just happened.

"Also, I want to say, this is not all horror (at least not in the sense of a man jumping out of a dark corner yelling "abloogey woogey woo") so if you are into Amnesia custom stories just for the jump scares and enemy encounters, I'd stay away from this one, you'll probably be disappointed."

Enjoy,

Wow very nice! Even though it was really (REALLY) short, I really liked it. I was expecting it to be not scary at all but at the end it did frighten me a little. Very nice made.

That's not good, I apologize. Does it just straight up crash or is there an error message with it?

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Normally, I'd facepalm because Slenderman is such an old and stupid meme. But really, this idea sounds nice. If you know how to pull it off, I'd love you forever.

RE: Other - A Short Custom Story

Oooh, nifty. I liked playing, even though it was short. The script was interesting. It reminded me of a short story I read when I was a kid about an alien species that infected a man's body and manifested themselves as eyes growing on his skin, I think. The man was able to get rid of them, but they came back eventually. Creeped the hell out of me back then.

Do you know the name? I kinda want to read it now. (Is that weird?)

A fatal error by encounter.hps - (23, 32) (166, 10) (167, 19) (172, 9) Wink

It's just only points that need to be removed. That should be correct the error.
It works!

Thanks for that, really, I looked at the script and I think I know what's wrong with it, strange that it works for some but not others. Anyway, take this and replace your encounter.hps with it (or just re-download the whole thing (or go to ModDB and use those links (though, they're not authorized yet))).

But seriously, you're a lifesaver. I've been wondering what the error was. Thanks.

Don't remove the points, put a zero in front of them.
