RE: Custom Story Crash [SOLVED]

OK....i changed it around a bit (looked around at someone else's "hps" and i changed mine like this:

My hps:

void OnStart()
AddQuest("hauntedhallquest", "HauntedHallQuest");
AddEntityCollideCallback("Player", "Walk_Quest_Area", "GetWalkQuest", true, 1);
CreateEntityAtArea("servant_grunt_6", "servant_grunt.ent", "RoomAreaThree", false);
AddEntityCollideCallback("Player", "Walk_Complete_Area", "FinishWalkQuest", true, 1);
AddEntityCollideCallback("Player", "RoomTwoArea", "CollideRoomTwo", true, 1);
AddEntityCollideCallback("Player", "RoomOneArea", "CollideRoomOne", true, 1);
AddEntityCollideCallback("Player" , "ScriptArea_1" , "MonsterFunc1" , true , 1);

void OnEnter()
AddUseItemCallback("", "hallkey_1", "hall", "KeyOnDoor", true);
SetSwingDoorLocked("hall", false, true);
SetSwingDoorLocked("outsidedoor" , false, true);
PlaySoundAtEntity("", "unlock_door" , "outsidedoor" , 0, false);
PlaySoundAtEntity("unlocksound", "unlock_door.snt", "hall", 0.0f, false);
SetEntityPlayerLookAtCallback("fire_place_3", "looking", true);

void GetWalkQuest(string &in asParent, string &in asChild, int alState)


void FinishWalkQuest(string &in asParent, string &in asChild, int alState)
CompleteQuest("hauntedhallquest", "HauntedHallQuest");
PlaySoundAtEntity("unlocksound", "unlock_door.snt", "hall", 0.0f, false);

void CollideRoomOne(string &in asParent, string &in asChild, int alState)
SetSwingDoorClosed("mansion_1", true, true);
SetSwingDoorClosed("hall", false, true);
SetEnemyIsHallucination("servant_grunt_6", true);
FadeEnemyToSmoke("servant_grunt_6", true);

Now that type of hps (in this order) i saw that from the user "Bennick"...

BUT....again and again the annoyance continues repetedly: Confused

- FATAL ERROR: Could not load script file 'custom_stories/RoaringCorridors/custom_stories/RoaringCorridors/maps/00_roaringcorridors.hps'!
main (33, 18) : ERR : Expected identifier
main (34, 11) : ERR : Expected identifier
main (35, 1) : ERR : Unexpected token '}'

Why..i dunno...the error/s are less but in each one that occured (and i kept changing lines insanely) it keeps mentioning "Unexpected token"...and of course "Expected Identifier" Huh

What am i doing wrong? Sorry to bother, for the well, 3rd time, but this error is pulling my nerves. Im creating my nice little map with creepy corridors and jump moments/scares...and i can't even load it Sad

RE: Custom Story Crash [SOLVED]

I'm having more troubles. The exact same problem as in the OP, and I can't figure out why this time tho....

Spoiler below!

<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
<Entry Name="Description">You are a man named Robert Lightwood. You are having personal problems, such as depression, for an unknown reason. Your wife, Maryse Lightwood, goes on a trip to somewhere in the desert, and she dies along the way. She gives you most the things she owns in her will, including a strange artifact she found in the desert. You keep it, and strange things start happening. Such as voices telling you to "Throw it away," or "Give it to me." You ignore them, and keep living, or trying to. You are then taking a nice stroll down an abandoned road when you hear something in the bushes. You get weak from fear and fall to the floor. The world goes dark and something slaps you on the head. You wake in a cell and the story begins.</Entry>
