-As of Amnesia'​s 1.3.1 release, ​the method ​in which the game reads Skyboxes has changed slightly, breaking them. **HOWEVER:​** Thanks to Daemian'​s skills on the forum and finding the issue, you can fix them as a developer ​by downloading this version of [[https://​www.dropbox.com/​s/​c2e7bi3k8f871ka/​DevIL.zip?​dl=0|DevIL.dll]]. You __DO NOT__ need this file if your //Amnesia: The Dark Descent // version is not 1.3.1. Optionally include the file when exporting your Custom Story or Full Conversion, however have a readme or note as to why DevIL.dll is included out of courtesy to the user. +As of Amnesia'​s 1.3.1 release, ​skyboxes render incorrectly ​in the game due to a bug in the DevIL version used. **HOWEVER:​** Thanks to Daemian'​s skills on the forum and finding the issue, you can fix it for Windows ​by downloading this version of [[https://​www.dropbox.com/​s/​c2e7bi3k8f871ka/​DevIL.zip?​dl=0|DevIL.dll]]. Optionally include the file when exporting your Custom Story or Full Conversion, however have a readme or note as to why DevIL.dll is included out of courtesy to the user. A solution for Mac and Linux should also be possible by replacing library versions, however is currently not documented.
