“Young of heart… a vessel of life… emptied and paled.
Eyes gouged… of essence drained... forever veiled.”







Backstory

Cornelius Campbell, publicly known by his stage name "The Amazing Alduin", is a world famous magician whose career is heading towards a halt. The theaters that will hire him grow ever smaller in size and although the crowd still claps it's but a painful reminder of his former greatness. The crowd has seen it all and Cornelius is prepared to do whatever it takes to make the crowd cheer in awe again. Cornelius sees an opportunity to restore his former success when an item of peculiar origins appears at an auction held in his home town of Colorado Springs.

Installation guide


Requires Amnesia 1.3 update

First off, you need the Amnesia 1.3 update to play this mod. Steam users have this update automatically but non-steam users need to manually download this update. Download the Amnesia 1.3 update here.


Step 1) Download the mod

Amadeus v1.0


Step 2) For Steam Version

Extract the "Amadeus"-folder inside your root "Amnesia the dark descent"-folder

The path is usually like this:

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\amnesia the dark descent

Inside the "Amadeus"-folder you will find "Amadeus.bat". Double click it.

If this doesn't work try this:

  • Go to your gaming library on steam and right click "Amnesia: The Dark Descent".
  • Choose "Properties" and click "Set launch options"
  • Type this in in the text field: Amadeus/config/Amadeus_main_init.cfg

Now start amnesia through the steam library and you should be able to play the mod.

Step 2) For Non-Steam Version

Extract the "Amadeus"-folder inside the "redist"-folder located in your root "Amnesia the dark descent"-folder

The path is usually like this:

C:\Program Files\Amnesia - The Dark Descent\redist

Inside the "Amadeus"-folder you will find "Amadeus.bat". Double click it.

To everyone who've got download/installation problems please follow these tips:
1-Download the mod, wait for it to finish downloading.
2-Open Amnesia: Dark Descent folder and then the .RAR file.
3-Extract the folder inside of it in Custom Story file in your Amnesia: Dark Descent folder.
4-Open the .exe game wich is Amnesia: Dark Descent.exe (for me)
5-Click on Custom Story, search for your custom story's name and double click on it, like this it will open. If you play'd it often, you'd find: Continue, New Game and some other things that i am not sure of, click on New game if you didnt play it yet, and Enjoy!
Sorry if it was long and i am sure its not cuz its only 5 steps, hope it helps too, enjoy everyone. :D (Btw i've written this comment and i still didnt play the mod yet, so excited!!!)

This is my first mod installation ever and I look forward to installing more, but however, I unpacked the RAR file and clicked on the Batch File, it won't open, did the command line in the Advanced Options and it still won't start. I'm wondering if I happened to have done something wrong or it won't work on my rig.

God forbid I won't be able to play what people are saying is Single-Player Mod of the Year

------------SPOILERS DOWN HERE--------------

One of the best custom stories i've ever played. Everything was amazing, the level modeling, custom monster and its story, unnerving scenario and variety of puzzles (some of them very original i must say, like the piano one or the one with the lightbulbs)and very defined and clear objectives.

Definitaly a custom story I would recommend and play again someday.

I would rate it a honest 10/10, because i've felt obligated to write a review on this mod to make sure people play a masterpiece like the one you've made.
Your job truly stands out upon all the mods i've played for the 4 years i've been playing this game.

Will be waiting for more mods of yours :)

You bamboozle me with the Demogorgon monster! I thought it was the real Demogorgon with his model and animations.

Yup, I was looking if the mod have some custom monster. Also, is the Demogorgon is supposed to be a reference to the Brute from Monstrum?

well.. where do i start. i've been watching this mod since the earliest screens, but visually, it exceeded all my expectations still. the long years of development can really be seen in the details :) the gameplay started out with pretty basic puzzles but as more and more of the custom assets and awesome ideas showed up i was pretty confident i'll enjoy this mod until the last second. the atmosphere was so damn amazing! and i was actually right.. though the last chapter was the least favourite of…
