What exactly doesn't work? Does the custom story not show up in game or does the game crash when loading up the custom story? Some install instructions here:

1. Download the file.
2. Extract the file with WinRAR or WinZIP.
3. Copy the folder to your custom_stories folder (in Amnesia root)
4. Start up Amnesia. It should be in the custom story list.

Awesome custom story 9/10 the puzzles where pretty fun and not that difficult and i liked the monster encounters but maybe you should also use some diffrent monsters because a lot of maps used the same one. I also found the story really interesting.

Thank you! I'm really glad you enjoyed the custom story. Unfortunately, creating a custom monster is not that easy. If you can't do it yourself, you're basically stuck with what you already have; the original monsters from Amnesia. Now there are some custom monster free to use, but I found them to be a bit uncontrolable (they are hard to use in chase scenes and such)

Oh crap, it seems like I am completely unable to play/enjoy this because I seem to have a huge fps issue- darn it :/

I'm gonna watch someone's gameplay and then I may give some opinions :)

That's very unfortunate to hear. I know some levels might have some fps drops because they are all so big. But especially the first and second map. Other maps should be run smooth on any pc with recommended specs.

Hey there, make sure path to the folder looks like this:
Amnesia The Dark Descent\custom_stories\Illusions_of_the_Dead_folder\

Also, if you've downloaded the version 3 file, please re-download it. There was a gamebreaking issue that has now been fixed :)
