Issues with my custom story...

Hey all, so i decided to make a custom story, and i followed all the steps on the website (http://wiki.frictionalgames.com/hpl2/amn...envguide). But when i try to go on Amnesia to test my story it says FATAL ERROR: Could not load world file 'Jekyll and Hyde/1 - Entering Jekyll's House.map' (The first part being my custom story, the second being my first map). I found some things i did wrong and fixed them, but i still get this error. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? :/

RE: Issues with my custom story...

Can you post your entire script for your map, aswell as the custom_story_setting.cfg

Although it seems that you just need to post your custom_story_setting.cfg

RE: Issues with my custom story...

Its fatal error, so it has nothing to do with custom_story_settings. More like how did you set up your development area, like main_settings and dev_user stuff.

For start, make absolutely sure that the name and everything is okay and same. I would not use spaces, instead spaces I would use _, for example:

Folder="This_IS_My_Story" File="My_Story_Is_Epic.map" - this way it is easier for him to detect and it should give better error at least ;P.

This is my Custom story settings:
<Main
ImgFile = "story.png"
Name = "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"
Author = "Niki .H."

MapsFolder = "maps/"
StartMap = "Entering Jekyll's house.map"
StartPos = "PlayerStartArea_1"
/>

Not sure what you mean by the entire script for the map, if you mean my HPS file it wont open, that might be part of my problem...

Keep in mind i dont know much about this stuff, so sorry if i seem like a noob

I tried adding _ instead, like Jekyll_and_Hyde, but it gave me the same error again..

Why would you do that? Then the game doesn't know where the map is located.

RE: Issues with my custom story...

It doesn't need it, it needs only these settings to run, Ill quote wiki, that folder will only confuse and ruin it, at least I am sure of that.:

Quote: Create a text file named 'custom_story_settings.cfg' in the story root. The contents of this file should look like this:
<Main
Name="A cannon story"
Author="Luis Rodero"
ImgFile="cannonbg.jpg"

StartMap="luis_script_test.map"
StartPos=""
/>

edit for extra: IF there is folder inside maps folder, like Chapter_1, then you just put StartMap="Chapter_1/mapname.map"

RE: Issues with my custom story...

Maybe make that map name:
'Jekyll and Hyde/1 - Entering Jekyll's House.map' something easier like:
01_Jekyll_house.map (and don't forget to change main settings too). Fatal error is saying that he cannot load the map up, that means probably one of the following:


a) He doesn't find map
b) map is somehow bugged, like starting position is missing..

Well i checked to make sure and i have a starting position... Tried switching up the name to Jekyll_house.map, still gives me the exact same error... Is my HPS file supposed to be able to open? Mine doesnt... Also my map is really incomplete, im not sure if that matters, but i don't even really have a ceiling, i lost it
