Help with custom stories

I have tried to install custom stories on my steam purchased amnesia game but when i enter the game there are no custom stories to play. I have extracted the files and put them under amnesia the dark descent/custom stories but the game still wont find the custom stories. What am i doing wrong?

Even if i´ve lost with my body, my soul is crammed with spirit. A fucking bastard like you can never destroy that! -John, GDW

You'll have to be more specific in order for us to help.

1. Which story are you trying to play?
2. Tell us exactly step-by-step how you are installing the mods, there is something you're doing wrong along the way.

The ones i am trying to install right now are Canis abusus, phengophobia and psychadelia 1, 2 and 3. I have downloaded the files, extracted them and put them in the custom stories folder. I used to do the same thing on my mac and then it worked fine. But it seems it doesnt work on a pc...

RE: Help with custom stories

Try extracting to the desktop, then moving them to the custom_stories folder.

How does one extract a file? Sorry, I'm Dutch so I don't know exactly what it is. By extract, do you mean move it out of the map where it is and onto the desktop?

I have managed to get one custom story working, A lot of stories, but I've also tried two others: Monsters and InAHeartbeat. The working one was already a map with other maps like: entities, maps, that kind of stuff, but the two that don't work appeared as RaR. files with an Internet Explorer icon next to it, I don't know what to do with them. I've tried opening them, because it seemed like the only thing to do, but it doesn't work for some reason.

RE: Help with custom stories

That's quite a necro you got there. Anyway, by extracting it's meant that you take the files out of the archive they're in. When you download a .zip or .rar, the files are compressed in these archives. Extracting is simply moving them out of it, which expands them to their original size and makes them fully usable.

If your RAR files have IExplorer as their default, download and install an archive manager like WinRAR. ZIP files are standard, but RAR files are not.

PS: What you're referring to as "map" is called a folder in English. A "map" is something else, including these things in the custom stories as playable levels.
