“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.

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.

BEST CUSTOM STORY EVER!! This was a masterpiece to play and in my opinion even better than The Dark Descent and Machine for Pigs combined! The story is amazing, the monsters are scary and the maps are beautiful! the puzzles are very clever and well put together, and NO CHEAP JUMPSCARES! This is definitely my favorite custom story so far! and will recommend it to others!

After successfuly exiting the maze i end up near a garage. The big door is locked. But so is the small one to the left. What am i missing? In all the playthroughs i watched it was not locked. I'm out of ideas.

You can't enter the garage? I just took a look in the editor and I think I just found the problem. Part of the area that triggers the locking of the small door goes a little bit outside the big garage door. I suspect that you walked along side the big garage door and that triggered the locking of the small door. Unfortunately, you have to restart that map and when you come back to the big garage door, don't walk along side it. This is gonna be fixed in the next update :) Sorry mate

Hi! I’m currently playing through this mod (and loving it!), but I was wondering: what is the name of the song that plays on the gramophone when you first enter the conservatory?

Hi, nice to hear you enjoy it! The singer is Elizabeth Spencer and the song is called "Adele" I think.

Wow, I have heard so many things about this custom story, and seen so many things, and I would honestly love to just jump right in, however there is a problem. Whenever I run the bat I get this (I added pause to bat to see what the problem was) IF you could please help me with this, I would be grateful.

Yes, I am using the non-steam version. Does this mean I cannot play this custom story?

No you can play it! :D

Ok so the problem might be this:

You seem to have placed the amadeus-folder like this:
C:\Program Files\Amnesia - The Dark Descent\Amadeus

When you're suppose to (with the non-steam version) place it like this.
C:\Program Files\Amnesia - The Dark Descent\redist\Amadeus

I have the same problem

E:\Programs\Steam\steamapps\common\Amnesia The Dark Descent\custom_stories\Amadeus>cd /d ..

E:\Programs\Steam\steamapps\common\Amnesia The Dark Descent\custom_stories>Amnesia.exe Amadeus/config/Amadeus_main_init.cfg
'Amnesia.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

E:\Programs\Steam\steamapps\common\Amnesia The Dark Descent\custom_stories>pause

However I'm running the game through steam. Do you know what I am doing wrong?

I fixed it for anyone who may be having the problem. Instead of putting the folder into custom stories put it into the Amnesia The Dark Descent folder. Open the Amadeus folder and run the .bat file after a couple of seconds the launcher opens and you can prepare your pants for a flurry of brown stains.

Of course. It's always like that with Full-Conversion mods. :D
You need to look out for that detail.

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…
