RE: Amnesia Custom Story Help!

Have you got a custom_story_settings.cfg file in your custom story's folder?

https://wiki.frictionalgames.com/hpl2/am...stom_story

Also, for testing your custom story, consider trying out Amnesia's Developer Environment. It grants you a few more extra settings such as a quick way to reload your map, debug messaging and current information on the map.

(P.S., this should be in Amnesia's Development Support subforum. Moving~ )

RE: Amnesia Custom Story Help!

So I did what the website said and created a new profile with the name they said, but the file has nothing in it. Can I just copy and paste the files into that folder or do I have do something else?

RE: Amnesia Custom Story Help!

Post your custom_story_settings.cfg contents here; there may be an error with it. All that's required to make your mod show up in the Custom Stories list is that .cfg and one map.

RE: Amnesia Custom Story Help!

<Main
Name = "Deadly Secrets "
Author = "Tigerlillymaya"

MapsFolder ="maps/"
StartMap = "01.bedroom"
StartPos = "playerstartarea_1"
/>
This is what I have for that folder.

RE: Amnesia Custom Story Help!

I highly recommend not using dots for naming your maps, as the engines can confuse it for a file type. Maybe rename your level to something such as "01_bedroom" or "01bedroom".

Also, I am not sure if this makes a significant difference but end the level name inside the .cfg file with "01_bedroom.map", so the outcome is StartMap = "01_bedroom.map".

Derp.

Is that what you meant?

RE: Amnesia Custom Story Help!

Ok I solved one problem and that was getting the dev_user folder to work right. I had to reinstall the game and then it worked. I still can't get the custom story to show up but I am making progress any suggestions?
