Can't play my custom game. HALP!!!

So, I'm getting started on the editor. I haven't created much of a map, but I felt like just trying it out to see how it looked. But for some reason, i can't play it on amnesia. I saved my map under the custom stories folder, and also tried creating a folder in the custom folder, which I then saved my map in. No matter what, i can't open it in the amnesia game itself. Angry I bought amnesia on steam, and I am using windows 7. What do I do? Do I save it as a different type of file? What do I do?

RE: Can't play my custom game. HALP!!!

hmm, no, I didn't. I remember seeing something about it, but I was a little confused. What exactly do i do?

It looks like this, right? <LANGUAGE> <CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
<Entry Name="Description">
This is the description of my Custom Story! It is SCARY!
</Entry>
</CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>
I got that from their wiki, but I didn't know what I was supposed to do with it.

RE: Can't play my custom game. HALP!!!

Here's my quick tutorial.
1.)Create a folder in your custom_stories (Doesn't matter the name.)
2.) Create a two notepad files
a.)custom_story_settings.cfg
b.)extra_english.lang

Fill inside the custom_story_settings.cfg
---------------
<Main
Name = "NAME OF YOUR STORY"
Author = "kittyzilla90"
ImgFile = ""
MapsFolder = "maps"
StartMap = "NAME OF UR FIRST MAP.map"
StartPos = "PlayerStartArea_1"
/>

---------------

Fill inside your extra_english.lang
---------------
<LANGUAGE>
<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
<Entry Name="Description">THIS IS WHERE YOU PUT UR DESCRIPTION</Entry>
</CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>
---------------

Put your first map in a new folder named "maps" in your custom story folder.
That's where you put your maps.

If you want to add notes and names to the items ask any one of the members, they'll get everything situated, or you can do what I did and download a simple custom story and dissect it all.

RE: Can't play my custom game. HALP!!!

What's the name of your first map?
Is all that stuff I told you to do in a folder inside of the folder named "custom_stories"?
Be sure that the two notepad files are outside the map folder.


If this fails can you take a picture of your folder and send it here, also copy and paste your two notepad files here so we could see if there's any errors.

Those are actual text files, not language or configuration files. Make sure you use "Save As..." and choose the appropriate file type.

I rate it 3 memes.
