Solved: 4 Years, 2 Months, 4 Weeks ago Custom story problem

Hello, I am having trouble with installing custom stories. I am using a mac and the steam version of the game. I know I have the custom maps in the right folders. When I go click custom stories, in game. It shows that nothing is listed there. Help would be appreciated! Thank you.

Can you list the paths that you did install the custom stories into? Maybe even paste the output of ls -lR of the custom_stories folder too.

Well I got it partially figured out.

The path that I put the files to is:
Library/Application Support/Steam/Steam Apps/common/amnesia the dark descent/custom_stories

I got one titled "Followed by Death chapter 1" to work alright. I tried "White Night", "Through the portal", and "La Caza". Those three don't show up in the list. I guess its a matter of somethings not working well on mac. Thanks!

Those three are full conversions, and follow a different installation and execution process.

Custom stories are the same across platforms. there are no platform specific files in them.. On the Mac build there is a button on the launcher labeled "Open Custom Stories".. click that to open the local folder where you should put those files.
