“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.

Changes in version 1.3.1

  • Added another letter from Mr Cameron.
  • Balanced some enemy encounters.
  • An event involving boxes was not replayable after death. That is fixed.
  • Another event in the same level was a bit confusing. I hope that is fixed now.
  • Gave the later levels a bit more love. They have gotten a little bit more polish in every update I've made since release. The reason being is that I always felt they were a bit rushed. It's simply minor visual and balancing changes tho. It's still the same levels.
  • Fixed every god damn texture clipping I could find.

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.

I've played a lot of custom stories back in the day, but this is by far the best I've ever played. My heart could hardly take it, especially at the end bit XD. Honestly, this could have been like it's own game itself, definitely worth actually spending money to play it.

From what I've played this is what I've gleemed of this mod(so far at least). I'm stating this in hopes that you'll see what was done well and what needs to be thought out more. First I LOVE the aesthetic and attention to detail. Great world building. Here's where it falls flat for me. Lack of intricate puzzles and scares. There was plenty of space in the first chunk of the game for well placed scares even ones I could of pointed out. Not to mention the long winded exploration with no difficulty to progression. In other words didn't challenge me in the typical Amnesia sense which brings me back for more. Usually even in Machine for Pigs when presented with a NEW area to traverse there's either a catch or puzzle to solve to move onward. So far I have seen none of this. I was surprised to see this mod labeled as finished as it seemed like a unfinished mod lacking puzzles and enemy encounters. So far I'm disappointed. But I shall play on until I see the end. I hope the rest of it isn't as unrewarding and uninspired as the beginning was.

Hello! I'm experiencing a glitch I believe only I am experiencing.

Whenever I open my journal, inventory, notes, you name it, there is just a white screen instantly. Whitest whites, nothing visible. Of course, ESC works, but everything else doesn't. How do I fix this?

Yeah that has happened to me too. From what I understand it's a bug from the main game. The only solution is to load a previous save in a level that you visited prior to the level that the bug occured in.

Oh wait, I never started the original game's story (went straight to custom, but on one of the 2 custom stories I have it works just fine). Should I start the actual story a little bit?

You just have to load a previous save in a level that you visited prior to the level that the bug occured in and the white screen should stop appearing.

Alright, sorry for the bugging, but it...appeared to happen that a few files turned into thin air, rendering the development tools and game itself fully unplayable. Thanks for trying anyways, it definitely works perfectly now!

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…
