RE: Ok,how to test your own map?

My only guess is you have a spelling error somewhere. Could be the map name, map folder, or even "custom_story_settings.cfg"

Is having extra_english file required?
<LANGUAGE>
<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
<Entry Name="Description"> </Entry>
</CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>



And you can also access map files through debug menus Load map feature.

Then go into your campaign's folder and open notepad. Save As... "custom_story_settings.cfg" exactly like that, no quotations. Then put this in there and fill in the areas with your information:


ImgFile = "PREVIEW_IMAGE"
Name = "CAMPAIGN_NAME"
Author = "kartanonperuna"

MapsFolder = "maps/"
StartMap = "MAP_NAME.map"
StartPos = "PLAYER_START_AREA"
/>

so it runs down like this? (capitalizations, spaces, and spelling ALL the same):

"custom_stories > Just another night > maps"

I've run into the same problem, my map won't show up either. And I'm pretty sure i've tripplechecked all the capitals, spaces etc.
My folder layout is like this : (Amnesia - The Dark Descent\redist\custom_stories\The Demon Summoning\maps\ (the map))
where my custom_story_settings.cfg is in the "The Demon Summoning" folder, where my .jpg is as well
The .cfg looks like this.

<Main
ImgFile = "dag_2.jpg"
Name = "The Demon Summoning"
Author = "Roy Hornstra"
MapsFolder = "maps/"
StartMap = "Kerkincrement2.map"
StartPos = "PlayerStartArea_1"
/>

HAH! I found it Tongue the slash is the wrong way around! thanks guys you are awesome!

Ill keep you posted on progress.


Darn that wasn't it :/
So okay for the completeness of my story. For some reason when I saved the .cfg file it didn't actually make it a .cfg file it still had the textfile icon. So I used a different custom map its .cfg and put my info inside that. Knowing is half the battle Wink

RE: Ok,how to test your own map?

I am actually going crazy about this f****** thing. Am I meant to have folders like entities and lights in my custom story folder? I've tried so many times if I can't figure it out soon I'm just gonna give up. Please help.
