Hi all;
My name is Tansel, and my nickname is Tanshaydar.

I'm working as a CIO and Software Engineer in an R&D company and studied as a computer science student in college.
I write stories and try that stories become a game. White Night was first example, more will follow.

More about me?

The other projects? Are they gaming related or is that a secret? :)

Hi there, I really love your White Night mod so far. The references to Penumbra and Silent Hill are brilliant.
I'm recording a Let's Play as I go (I hope this is alright) and suddenly got a copyright claim from this company "Rumblefish"? Apparently a few people have had this problem with them and always with the same part of the game. Do they actually own the rights to any music in it?

Man, first of all.. I absolutely loved your mod! You wrote modding-history while creating it! The only downside I could find is that the music was a bit too loud at voice-acting scenes, so that could be something to think about in your next mods/games? :)

Now to the reason I came here.. I'm currently making a total conversion myself, and I want to use the flashlight and batteries for it. I've copied item_flashlight and item_battery from the White Night redist, and pasted them in my TC redist (entities/tcw)(my TC is named tcw). I've also put them in the main amnesia redist and then put the items in my total conversion using LevelEditor, I then copied your models-folder for the flashlight mod and put them in mine.
However, when I pickup the flashlight in-game and then pressing F, the lantern pops up. And the batteries acts as oil. Is there any way known to you how to fix this? I've been trying for the last 3 days or something... :/

I am glad you liked White Night.
For flashlight, you either need to reconfigure resource settings or overwrite original files.
I prepared a tutorial here a long while ago:

Your mod White Night was wonderful! There was a few jumpscares, and lots 'o puzzles, the story was epic but hard to follow on. I also like that you put pyramid face in the mod.
