Looks pretty good.

I hope it isn't full of obnoxious jumpsacres.

Just google for the free extracting software called "WinRar". After installing you can right click the .rar file and you can click extract. It will then extract the .rar file to a folder which you have to copy over to your custom_stories folder. Then go into game and it should be in the custom story list :)

I really love Illusions of the Dead and steaming it live on my channel. But I have a problem: After finding all 3 Drill-Parts I want to combine them in the Machine Room to use the hand drill on the Barrel. But it doesn't work, I can't combine the 3 parts in the Inventory. I tried reload save point, previous save point ... nothing helped. So I wanna ask:
Can somebody post the class code for a complete Hand Drill so I can place it in the Inventory section of my save file? I will change paths to my home folder/ installation. I think this should work, right? I want to continue the stream thursday evening (tomorrow)so fast help would be very kind :)

Well I solved the problem myself by finding the code for the complete Hand Drill somewhere in a forum. I am so happy, that I can go on with the live stream of this great custom story tomorrow :)

Hey LPMM, first of all I'm glad that you're liking the custom story so far. Second of all I'm a bit worried. I don't know where you got the code for the complete hand drill from. You said something about a forum. If it's the code for the hand drill in the main Amnesia game, the code will probably not work.

Also, combining the drill isn't the only thing you can combine in the mod. Later in the mod you'll have to combine items into atleast 3 items. So if combining the drill didn't work, combining the other 2 items later in the mod will probably not work either.

I tried a couple of things to fix it but I couldn't reproduce the bug myself. My guess is that it's probably because of an older Amnesia version or due to bad optimized custom stories you've installed with the same variables as in Illusions of the Dead.

Somebody else also got this bug. What he did to fix it was completely reinstall Amnesia and update it to the latest version (1.3 is latest but 1.2 works aswell)

Hey TimProzz, I am very happy you reply, because after making our way forward (The Hand drill worked!) we ended up with a new problem: The Hammer/Chipper combining, just as you said, the bug remains with the other combine Items.

I am a very active german amnesia custom story and fcm lets player and live streamer and I use the Steam version with justine on my technically uptodate ubuntu 16.04 system. I think the steam version should be up to date, because updates always been installed via Steam. I never had a problem with combining Items in the inventory in all the other custom stories and FCMs I recorded and streamed yet. This is the first time I have this problem, with your very good and atmospheric piece of work. Even though me and the audience got kind of frustrated for running into the same problem again, everybody said that your game is very high worth giving it a go by fixing the problem somehow and going on with enjoying Illusion of the dead.

This is the code for the combined hand drill in the inventory that worked on the barrel to fill the Jar:

<class type="cLuxInventory_Item_SaveData" name="">
<var type="4" name="msName" val="handdrill" ></var>
<var type="2" name="mlType" val="0" ></var>
<var type="4" name="msSubType" val="hand_drill" ></var>
<var type="4" name="msVal" val="" ></var>
<var type="4" name="msExtraVal" val="" ></var>
<var type="4" name="msImageFile" val="graphics/item/graphics/item/graphics/item/graphics/item/graphics/item/graphics/item/graphics/item/graphics/item/hand_drill.tga" ></var>
<var type="3" name="mfAmount" val="0.000000" ></var>
<var type="2" name="mlCount" val="1" ></var>
<var type="4" name="msGameNameEntry" val="ItemName_hand_drill" ></var>
<var type="4" name="msGameDescEntry" val="ItemDesc_hand_drill" ></var>
</class>

I hope you can help me with this infos

Lots of Greetings
