Wow, hmm..
so the .map file and the .hps file have the same exact name?
you have a simple .lang file in custom_stories>"the name of your story" folder? not in the maps folder.
do you have a .cfg file?
(that might be the problem right there)

what else do i need now?
(just so you know i am new to this )

The reason you cannot run your map is because you haven't saved it's Starting location. Copy and paste this with your map folder. Not inside it!

Spoiler below!
<Main
ImgFile = "YOURPICTUREHERE.png"
Name = "THE NAME OF YOUR MAP "
Author = "YOUR NAME"

MapsFolder = "maps/"
StartMap = "YOURMAPNAME.map"
StartPos = "PlayerStart"
/>

If you do it correctly it should work. And it MUST be a CFG file.

@Angerpull;

It has to be called "custom_story_settings.cfg", to add on that. :3

simple, change the name of the key to match Exactly what it is in the .hps file as well as the .lang file
EX: If your key's name is "key_1"
in the .hps file, it should be "key_1"
in the lang file however, it should be whatever the text name is going to be.
you can change the text Entry name in the level Editor by clicking the key, then clicking the Entity tab, scroll down until you see TextEntry (I think) and whatever you put in that dialog box has to match up in the .lang file for it to work, understand?

EDIT: Oops, my mistake, it's CustomSubItenTypeName, not TextEntry.

RE: Making my first level!

Woah... Way to many syntax errors.
<LANGUAGE>
      <RESOURCES>
      </RESOURCES>
           <CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
           <Entry Name="Description">"The Castle"</Entry>
       </CATEGORY>
           <CATEGORY Name="Inventory">
<Entry Name="ItemName_TowerKey">Tower Key</Entry>
<Entry Name="ItemDesc_TowerKey">Looks like the key for the near by Tower</Entry>
</CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>

void OnStart()
{
AddUseItemCallback("", "TowerKey_1", "castle_arched01_3", "UsedKeyOnDoor", true);
}

void UsedKeyOnDoor(string &in asItem, string &in asEntity)
{
SetSwingDoorLocked("castle_arched01_3", false, true);
PlaySoundAtEntity("", "unlock_door.snt", "castle_arched01_3", 0, false);
RemoveItem("TowerKey_1");
}

void OnEnter()
{
}
void OnLeave()
{
}

And is "castle_arched01_3" really the name of the door? (That's what you actually named it) Or is it by default? (If it's by default, that is most likely an archway instead of a door)
