[Solved] Trouble playing stories

Post by SolarPowerdMess »

Hey! So I just tried installing my first custom stories. I tried with WetDreams 2 and Bisquits and Tea with Amy the Sweetie.
When I tried loading either, the house had no characters. I walked around, looked everywhere, and couldn't find anyone. I went back and checked the original posts. BaTwAtS says it's for [0.10.4], and WD2 says it's for [0.13.3]. I checked, and I'm on 13.3, which I believe is the most recent and should at least work with WD2.

I find it odd, because both stories load and let me free roam. That made me think I placed the files correctly, but I couldn't find anything else to do. I tried using console commands to summon the characters, but they didn't seem to exist, and I'm not that good at using the console anyway.

What should I do?

EDIT: I'm on a Windows 10 hp laptop, 64 bits, 8 GB of RAM, and I think I have around 100 GB of disk space.
The game version is 13.3

Like I said, I'm on 13.3, and the story I tried it on is WetDreams 2, from 13.3
As for the right folder, I unzipped the file with the story, and put the folder that had the character and story files on this one:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\House Party\HouseParty_Data\StreamingAssets\Mods\Stories

I thought it was the right one because the story actually loaded, but nothing happened in it.

Did you get this resolved? Been a crazy busy week over here and just wanted to make sure you're all set.

I didn't, unfortunately. I tried a bit more when I first posted this, but hadn't checked since. Today I uninstalled and re-installed the game, checked again, and nothing.
All 3 official stories do work, but any others don't.

Custom stories must not be placed in the steamasset folder ! they must go to the documents folder:

C:\Users\**username**\Documents\Eek\House Party\Mods\Stories.

ex using WetDreams-2.story file :
C:\Users\ttant\Documents\Eek\House Party\Mods\Stories\WetDreams-2\WetDreams-2.story
