Dark Souls thread.
How is everyone enjoying Steamworks?
Remember to update DSFix to latest version. Delete DSCfix.
Holy steam. Never downloaded this fast in my life. My theoretical max speed is 5.62mb/s but I usually DL stuff at 2mb~3mb, or 4mb on a really good torrent.
#21 should be don't fuck with the mushrooms
I'm playing M+KB too. In my opinion it's better than on a controller. My PvP winrate is probably between 80 and 90%, and I always use m+kb. I have no idea why everyone worships controllers so much in this game.
You can hide cursor. It's supposed to hide itself when you're not in the menus. Maybe you fucked something up in DSFix.ini. Maybe it's that "UI Mouse" setting in DSMFix's GUI.
Run the DSMfix gui application. Here are all my settings:
target switching: Mousewheel (inefficient, just my perference, would probably be better off with mouselook w/ modifier)
Sensitivity: MAX (trust me)
Action Modifier key: ALT
Mouse 1: Attack
Mouse1+modifier (ALT+click): Heavy attack
Mouse3: Target Lock
Mouse4: Roll/Dash (I sometimes use this, sometimes use spacebar)
After setting it up, it plays really well, almost like if the controls were designed properly on PC.
The only issue is that the turn rate isn't as snappy as in some well designed third person action games, but it's fast enough that I never feel limited by it in Dark Souls.
If you need to do a quick instant 90+ degree turn, just hit middlemouse (lock-on) which turns the camera instantly where you are facing, so long as you aren't actually locking onto anything.
apparently people are getting better experiences by switching their download region to Finland since Dark Souls is region locked while in the beta. I haven't done it yet but some people have been having good results.
I need some help.
The migration thing didn't work as gflw crashes the game while trying to sign in.
Thing is I have my old save files still in NBGI/DarkSouls folder over My Documents.
I made new character in steam beta version and disabled steam cloud but I can't find where the new save files to at all in order to replace with my old ones in hoping it would work.
mfw i am free from the clutches of Microsoft and their shitty platform once and for all.
Why isn't this shit dirt cheap in celebration of it having online again? I've pirated both games and I usually end up cheating with a trainer because I'm a filthy casual, but I've been watching the DS2 playthrough by TBF and I want to actually try to play legit.
>invade a hacker
>block him on steam to prevent matchmaking from pitting me against him again
How do I get myself summoned
I'd like to join the warriors of sunlight but I really don't feel like grinding out my faith to 25
Are there any specific bosses where a lot of people get summoned often?
I thought i hated Blightown until i got to the tomb of giants. HOLY FUCKING SHIT IM MAD. FUCK EVERYTHING. IM NOT EVEN USING CAPS LOCK, IM HOLDING SHIT TO WRITE THIS SHIT, FUCK CUNT PISS SHIT FUCKING ASSHOLE SKELETONS, IM NEVER PLAYING AS A NECROMANCER EVER AGAIN, FUCKING LIFE MISSION NOW IS TO FUCK WITH AS MUCH SKELLETONS AS I CAN FUCK BITCH CUNT
Is resistance really an useless stat? I was thinking about doing a super tanky palladin with max res and vit. Is it worth it?
Bearing in mind I completed the game once as a counter thief.
I'll leave that to a later playthrough. For now I want to be a palladin and purge the evil from the land.
That's a shame. Is heavy armor even worth it then? Is vit + defense enough to make a tanky character?
What about the wheight (carry)? Are heavy wheighted characters viable or is at least medium wheight a necessity?
i feel bad for using the zweihander during my first playthrough
the game became too easy for me
am i the only zwei lover?
I don't have to bother updating DSfix if I'm not using the 60fps feature, yeah? Not that I don't love 60fps, it's just that I'm not sure if my
laptopcould handle it. It's not a toaster, but I just don't know.
Are they doing character bans now?
Because online was working for me on my new perfectly legal character, but I did load up a hacked one for an achievement. I can place my sign down but there are no signs, ghosts, or bloodstains anywhere, even after waiting a while.
Is softbanning a thing in Souls 1 now?
>running around, find the way back to undead asylum
>fall off, land somewhere in graveyard
>skeletons everywhere, trying to kill me
>notice white spot on the ground
>didnt even read what it was, just sprinted out and barely lived
>hmm what did I pick up back there
never used another sword the rest of the game
I used a trainer on one of my characters and just maxed out everything just to see how easy the game was when you're strong as shit.
My character and game save loaded fine, so did the steam achievements.
GFWL wasn't installed when I downloaded it, so I had to go download it myself just so the game would start and convert my saves. After that you're golden. Switch over to the beta.
I have a +6 Zweihander or whatever. I just picked up the Blacknight Sword and upgraded it to +2. It's miles better than the Zweihander, even though the RB attack is the only useful attack. Should I keep upgrading the Zweihander, or continue finding Twinkling Titanite and using the Blackknight sword??
>See DS finally moved to steamworks
>Want to roll a new character
>Remember everything past Anor Londo
Why even bother?
>decide to play dark souls again
>make a new character
>try a different build from last time
>kill taurus, butterfly, capra, havel, and gargoyles
>put the game down
>load up the game another time
>do the same thing again
>Have a lightning Zwei shitter twink with 200+ hours played
>Used to gank lowbies in sewers all day errday
>Can't be bothered to git gud again
All those fresh kills I'm missing out on
>being so shit you don't just fast roll and sprint through tombs.
Those are the fat asses Scott Steiner was talking about
After 4 hours of DaS1 PVP, followed by 5 hours of DaS2 PVP last night. I've come to the conclusion that DaS2 has much more enjoyable, balanced, varied, and rewarding PVP experience.
This is coming from a guy with 1,500 DaS1 hours and 780 DaS2 hours.
Anyone know exactly where the v2.0 (Steamworks) game saves are so I can back them up and revert to GFWL?
Thank you anon
As a sum of its parts I already do not enjoy DaS2 as much.
It simply comes down to SM, no full eye orb and no low lvl invading/builds.
Invading in DaS2 is basically an invader invading other people who are trying to invade.
I'm sorry about that anon
this should cheer you up
>you will never get snu snu from a buff witch
MY LOVE FOR YOU IS LIKE A TRUCK
waiting by the church to co-op the gargoyles, but no summons
cont with voice message
Lucky us it's not possible in Online play, ay?
Why does this game look like you're doing the same thing over and over again?? Is this the case or what? Because dark souls looks like shit to me.
Nope. You generally need not revisit locations more than once. Mostly, you just kill the boss, get the items and go on. There is some backtracking, of course, at times, especially in the first stages of Lordran.
Time well spent. I picked New York, found some people.
was just about to start a thread asking for it
I just finished the game with a warrior with pure STR/DEX build. Now i restarted as a pyromancer and i want to focus more on magic instead of big sowrds. whats a good build and a good weapon for a noob pyro?
that place makes me hesitate doing another run every time I start up that game.
Who thought Skeleton beast were a good idea?
Gotten summoned a few times at Gargoyles at SL22, i don't even remember the appropriate level ranges for bosses.
What's a decent range for getting summoned in the depths? Always liked doing full runs there.
I have a physical copy of DaS, how would I go about activating it on Steam?
>Code has already been activated by another Steam account
Hey there traveler! I see you are exploring this dark cave without a light source on you. Don't mind me, I just want to welcome you with my GIGA FUCK YOU COMBO THAT'LL EAT YOUR HEALTH FASTER THAN YOU CAN PRAISE THE SUN. Remember to leave your souls at the door.
rolling for great glory.
If you're using dsmfix, go into dsmfix.ini and change "ui_mouse" to 0, then go into DSfix.ini and change "disableCursor" to 1. It'll disable the mouse cursor in general, even for menus, but you'll be able to control the camera like you were able to before. Just use keyboard for menus.
So I beat DaS1 a while back as a Dex/pyro and went sorcery/Dex in ng+ and had way too easy of a time towards the end. Would love to feel that tension of getting gud again, thinking of doing a str (and miracles?) build. Thoughts/reccomended stat spread?
