Version 2.0, the irrevocably final version. Complete with 3 re-play modes and all major bugs fixed.

The Trapdoor ver.1.2

This older version is included for legacy only (it's also a smaller download). Version 2.0 is probably the one you want.

I'm trying really hard to complete this, but I can't. I've tried to progress but I just don't know what to do. I fed the monster the pig, but then there are so many dark hallways down which I can barely see and I lost boney on a high pillar. What do I do?

The answer: don't lose Boney!

If you dropped him over the edge maybe you can jump down and find him...

Lo sentimos, no hablo español muy bien, pero si otra persona puede traducir el texto, yo estaría encantado de lanzar una versión española.

I voted for this for mod of the year. Which should tell you something because A Coward's Debt is also up for it and I had to turn my back on it (I did voice acting for that ACD so that's a testament to how much I love Trapdoor to break THAT kind of bias lol)

Please Help ME

Please help me. I've fed the creature four pigs and it says I have to go back upstairs to the dining room, but I can't find the dining room. I've walked everywhere and I cannot find anything.

This has been asked before, so I've updated the hints page to include clues for finding the dining room. Go here: Aethericgames.com and scroll down to the heading that says "Fifth Pig". Enjoy!

The hint says the room opposite the fireplace, but the door is locked. Did I miss something? And thanks for the quick reply.

Never mind. Disregard that reply. I think the action took place where the door open, but the game crashed at that part. The fault is on my part.

Do you have the 1.3 beta patch installed? The Trapdoor isn't entirely compatible with v.1.3 and it sometimes crashes at that point if you have it installed.

To be truthful, I have no idea. It has been a while since I last updated Amnesia and I don't know enough about computers to know how to check. And I don't think it is the mod. I get the EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION when I get to the part. This has also been happening with many other custom stories.
