If there are no files inside the folder, then maybe you're looking at the wrong Amnesia folder.
Could you post the search path to your folder?

RE: Custom mode trouble...

After opening your Amnesia install folder, open up the "redist" folder, the "custom_stories" folder will be in there.

Also, as an off topic note, don't type in red. It's really unneeded.

Just as I thought: You're in the wrong Amnesia folder. That is just your settings folder - not the folder where you installed the game. If you're using Steam, then the game folder is in your Steam folder. If you're not using Steam, then it's simply where you installed it - maybe under Programs\.

I found it under the Programs, there is Amnesia,Frictional Games Support, Frictional Games, Manual, Remember-Short Story Collection and Uninstal Amnesia. Is this the right folder? Because i dont have anything else, but i still cant find the custom story folderSad

I'm talking about C:\Programs\. You're currently in the Start menu folder where the shortcuts to your install path is. I could tell you to locate the actual path through right-clicking on those shortcuts and choosing Properties, but you don't seem to know computers that well, so at this point I'm worried that you'll mess up somehow. Do you have a family member there who knows computers?

If you don't know how to get to C:\Programs\ or what the Start menu is, then I think you'll have to take some kind of computer course, or possibly there's a help file from Microsoft that can tell you somehow, or some helpful page on the internet. In any case, you'll need to learn using a program called the "Explorer", not to be confused with "Internet Explorer". Until you know what you're doing better, I don't recommend trying to install custom stories - sorry.
