Somewhere in England, among the mountains and deep in the heart of a dense Forest lies a huge mansion owned by a large family of wealthy European Aristocrats. The owners rarely venture from inside their safe haven, yet gladly welcome many visitors to share with them an experience in this magnificent landmark.

A darkness hangs over this place however. Some claim visitors never return from their visits, while others tell stories of deformed creatures and vile spirits haunting the mansion and surrounding forest.

Expect to find:

  • A lengthy story
  • A Tense and atmospheric experience
  • Custom assets, music and sounds, including many from Amnesia 'A Machine for Pigs'

***Important***

Amnesia 1.3.1 patch is needed to play this story, and a good PC is also recommended. Older/lower end graphics cards including the Intel HD series will unfortunately crash the game. This is likely related to the AMFP assets, so unless Frictional update Amnesia to better support these files I am currently unsure if a fix is possible.

Also, please check the read me file before playing as it has some important information/requirements for this story to function correctly.

v1.05 patch in the works

News

First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has left me positive feedback, your enthusiasm and kind words really overwhelm me, i'm really happy you have enjoyed playing my story! But at the same time I recognise all is still not 100% perfect which is why I am currently working on a 1.05 patch.

The aim of this patch is to fix minor lingering issues/bugs I have become aware of either from watching youtube playthrough's or from receiving player feedback. For example, occasionally I have found it possible to get stuck behind certain barrels or boxes, forcing a reloaded save which can of course be an annoyance. I also want to add a couple of hints in certain places as I found some players were getting lost not knowing what to do.

I am also going to do what I can to reduce the load times on some of the maps, longer load times are to be expected due to the size of some of the levels, but i'm sure I can make improvements to some of them.

And finally I will be updating the moon with a custom one created by a fellow Amnesia modder, and the night sky will be improved with an alternate skybox and adding weather effects including rain and thunder/lighting.

That is all for now, I dont currently have a release date in mind for the patch, but rest assured you won't have to wait too long.

And once again, thank you so much for your continued support!

Hello serbusfish, I have a problem in the game that causes mouse movement to decrease by at least half in one of the events where the first encounter with the Manpig in the West Hall. I was wondering if the door was suppose to break or the event with the slow movement and slow mouse speed would stop at some point?

Hey, yes the door is supposed to break and your are only supposed to have slow movement while you are on the floor. Are you running the latest version? I have never experienced this glitch i'm afraid.

Yes, I am running the latest version and I even installed the Hotfix. I even ran the Level Editor and saw that the door is indeed breakable, but I ran through the level countless times, but it's still not breaking and the slow movement will not stop.

Can I ask exactly what happened originally? Did the pig break the door down? Basically i've gone back and looked at the script and the pig is the trigger that resets your speed, once he leaves your speed returns. I'm thinking he might have de-spawned in the wrong place and didnt trigger the speed change (if he spawned at all?)

Well what happens every single time is that the pig goes to the doors, then stops in it's tracks and does nothing for the rest of the time, and as mentioned before, the door makes noise, but does not break. Here's a video showing what I'm talking about. Youtube.com

Do you have any other custom stories installed with AMFP assets? Or have you installed AMFP assets into your Dark Descent folder? Its possible my custom story is loading the wrong door as the mansion doors from AMFP are not destructible by default, I edited one so it could be broken down.

I think that's the problem, thanks man.

No problem, hope you're able to fix it. If you cant you could just delete the door from the map in the level editor I guess as a crude work around.

That is the CPU my friend. The graphics card will be either an AMD, nVidia or Intel HD.

Yeah sorry, there is a current problem with Intel HD graphics. It is engine related, because the Machine for Pigs assets were not originally designed to run in the Dark Descent engine they can cause problems on some hardware, Intel HD series is one of them. Unless Frictional updates the engine to better support them there isnt much I can do apart from upload an edited version of the story without the Machine for Pigs assets, though this would involve a lot of work.

I do. My laptop was given to me as a gift for college and has 10 gigs of RAM. It runs most games at full graphics and settings at 60 FPS yet when I launch this one custom story, it just crashes. I haven’t had this happen to any other story, including the Things in the Night. It ran that well. I honestly don’t know what to do. Once I get back to my computer I’ll let you know what the graphics cards are

I loved this custom story! One of the very few that actually had me feeling scared at times. Very immersive atmosphere and story. level design is top notch and the puzzles were engaging and fun, not too hard. The monster encounter in the sewer was definitely one of the scariest amnesia moments for me. Props to you for making a fantastic story!
