Let the game begin edition
>Tips for new players
You can change vocations at level 10 at the Gran Soren inn or BBI.
Character appearance can be changed later on.
You don't need pawns, but they help.

yep its pretty perfect from what i can say, played the game for like 10 hours now

nothing can go wrong now.

fucking bullshit. doesn't this fucking piece of shit game even save on its own?
r8 my man-hunk pawn, /ddg/
tell me on a scale of 1-so gay
warrior/fighter i'd go challenger/mitigator or mitigator/challenger.
I think I have seen a pawn use a "launch" move once or twice. and they'll never use it when you'd like them to
doubt that will ever happen.
I just hope for a mod that adds back in the beserk gear. All they'd need to do is a texture swap with a different piece of gear
Probably won't work, since when downloading the game it goes into downloading folder, instead of common.
And replacing those files won't hasten the download. Only way you'll mange with pirate installation would be to make steam think it's installed (aka highlighted in white) then place the pirate files and verify.
Regardless, good luck anon!
It actually worked. I just deleted the download and re-started it again, and Steam went all "Discovering existing files", downloaded a bit of stuff afterwards and now I'm done.
I can excuse everything of this port, ex-fucking-cept:
>using X and O on the keyboard to activate functions
I can see backspace being an oversight when typing, but this shit is pantsu on head.
Well, Japanese kids are expected to save the world by they time they're like 13. As it turns out you're actually just part of their team, but they'll accommodate your needs by calling 'you' the chosen one.
didn't expect grigori to go down so easy just because he is weak to dark
i had crushing terror spiked mace or w/e it's called, dark affinity, abyssal anguish and abyssal riposte and i went through his life bars like butter
none of my pawns even took damage. these monsters in the post-game and fucking my asshole though.
So should I buy the game even though I never finished it on PS3? Or should I just pirate it?
I mean the only benefit to purchasing is being able to get pawns from other people right?
Convince me it's worth to buy on my 4K capable PC even though I already bought it for PS3
What's the best control type setup for the 360 controller?
The fact that pre-generated pawns are absolute shit and are going to make you hate the game, if you're new.
good luck finding a mage pawn in the beginning of the game with comestion, anodyne, and fire and holy boon
Was I not support to rest at the encampment?
We got attacked by a Hydra and I got my shit pushed in. Git gud or not ready yet?
That convinced me, gonna buy then
You can solo the Hydra without it ever dealing damage to you
That's a wise decision. or at least watch some gameplay comparing the two I guess, if you really don't want to spend money before seeing for yourself.
I also say "to support the game" like a previous anon, and even if I so badly want a sequel, I despise supporting CapShit.
>fresh after BBI
>all I have left is Gransys
Everything is gonna be a joke, isn't it?
>killed Daimon after 3 wake stones and my entire healing assortment
>I thought it wasn't even his final form
Is this game broken, or is saving changes in options mapped to some random key that isn't enter?
I've tried every key on the fucking board, but I still can't modify a single thing in the options menu.
>mfw people on /v/ saying normal is hard
What the hell I started hard my first go and it was just right difficulty wise
Since I am creatively bankrupt right now I decided to make Frisk from Subterranean Chronicle, anything I should change?
to boot, try running the program in admin mode. operating system might also be important. I'm running it on Win7 with no issues, and I'm past the hyrdra.
I think he's going for an orc-thing anon. That being said, why an orc would be anyone's waifu is beyond me
She looks way to feminine m8, dont be afraid to man-jaw that barbarian and give her a bigger mouth.
other than the really, really frustrating one-hit KOs from most mobs when entering every new area, I agree. It's just right and I can't play on normal anymore without getting bored.
>save button is your friend
Yeah, I wouldn't know what to tell you other than basic troubleshooting. This game is a pretty flawless port. nothing but minor hiccups on the release version so far. I had one hard crash in the equipment menu, but that was it.
Do most of the sidequests you receive before moving on in the main quest. not doing so will result in some failing.
not saving quina before moving to gran soren will result in her disappearing IIRC
It is the first. hopefully good sales will urge CapShit to produce a sequel. so buy three for your friends.
The game has a great story, but what it is lacking is MUCH story. A lot of the lore is implied rather than directly stated to you and most of it will be found in random dialog and item descriptions.
look at the pastebin for beginner tips, but some big ones are:
>do your sidequests before moving on the mainquest
>wolves hunt in packs
So I'm building a Fighter pawn and need a little help with the build.
That's what I have right now, I want high defenses for them. Any tips?
Having an issue where the game registers my left click as being held down constantly. What's weird is that I can do light attacks normally yet when I try casting spells they will never be cast as the game says I'm still holding left click and when I bind left click to either primary or secondary skills then it simply will only let me select from the respective skills bound to left click. Anyone else have this issue?
>Is this the pawn you desire?

Can I play as a Warrior and switch to Assassin as soon as I'm about to level up and still get the Assassin stat growth? Then switch right back to Warrior and continue playing repeating this process
>kill a lone wolf before it can even howl
>2 more wolves literally rise out of the ground around me
>mfw zombie dogs
I'm gonna ask a question you guys have to answer honestly:
Is the game fun?
>every pawn and arisen seems to be loli
I played DD twice on 360 and DA twice on PS3 and I don't remember the extra armour being put in your storage at the beginning, was that a later addition on consoles or is it a PC bonus?
I only want to do it for a Strider augment. I'm playing Warrior but would need to get to Rank 5 Strider and don't want to mess up my stats so I'll be switching right before I level back to Warrior. I'm hoping it won't take long and I won't have to go back to Gran Soren a lot to do this. I got the 2 rings of perseverance so that should cut back on unwanted base level exp and only killing the things outside gran soren that give less then 100xp
m8 wait till you see the real evil dogs
Yeah man normal is boring as fuck I'm glad I played my first time through on hard since it made me git gud fast. Anything less was death and loved it.
grizzled warriors for life brah
I hopped on a cyclops's ass, flung myself up onto his back, flung myself over his head, and then did a mid air spin into dual handed falling chop down his face, knocking him onto his back where I proceeded to stab him to death in the junk while my NPC ally did the same to his face like he was a giant corn on the cob and our swords were corn holders.
None of this was a quick time event.
Basically what I'm saying is imagine if Shadow of the Colossus and Vindictus had an antisocial baby with dwarfism.
Eh I kinda enjoy min/max and just knowing the character I made is how I wanted it. It's part of the fun for me in any game desu
Vocations level up separately from base level right? Like killing low level stuff with crappy EXP while wearing rings that boost disciple gain 125% should help me reach rank 5 vocation in maybe like 2 base levels?
No. As long as you don't bring the Hydra head back to Gran Soren you won't miss out on any missable quests.
Some say you won't miss out on those early ones up until you talk to Ser Maximillian but idk
>that first time you see your pawn use the exact same fighting style as you to beat an enemy
Meh, I started on hard and by the time level 15 rolled around, as long as I remember to save before taking on anything with substantive health I was doing fine.
I mean sure I can die in two hits and some fights take like 10-15 minutes, but I just have to not get hit. And that's easy as long as you aren't holding still or fighting 12 bandits/lizards alone because your pawns went full retard and aggro'd on the group bosses first and kept doing it because fuck staying alive.
>tfw want to buy it on PC but my laptop would run it like shit
>have no desire to play it anymore on 360
I just want to enjoy this game again.
At this point my pawns somehow ended up smarter than me.
>keep trying to teach my pawns how to grab enemies mid combat
>keep fucking up and grabbing dead wolves or missing entirely or somehow overing the shoulder goblins when I try to grab them from behind
>now my pawns grab at every opportunity except when enemies are dead
>it's always a back grab
>tfw want to buy it on PC but my laptop would run it like shit
I'm running it on max settings on a 3 year old midtier laptop.
It's a PS3/360 port, not a PS4/boner port. Do you have a toaster or are you a graphics whore?
Now that the game is out, does anyone know if it would be possible to add the Japanese voices (pic related) to the game?
"Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Other times, not so much."
Not a graphics whore too much, I just want the game to run relatively smooth without it looking like a ps1 game. Just going off of past experiences, I've had to lower the graphics a lot just to get a decent framerate. My laptop is going on 5 years old now though so maybe it's just on its way out.
would anyone rent my ralph if i made one?
imp voice or ogre?
caster dressed in motley? or shirtless warrior?
I missed this game so much! It's so good to play again.
Not this one
Mage/sorc: Magnifying glass on an anthill
Assassin: Kicking an anthill
Warrior: Kicking an anthill full of fire ants
Ranger: 12 gauge into an anthill
Fighter/mystic knight: Standard sword'n'board, MK adds a paladin feel
Strider: Dick ass sonic
Choose whichever one sounds the funnest to you
I ended up with a character that looks from time to time like Jetstream Sam then faceless assassin guy from Game of Thrones and then Zed from Police Academy.
Doesn't look like a complete doll, that's a bonus.
What do you think of my Arisen?
Idk what I expected on PC but christ, I was wondering why no one was summoning my pawn who I already worked hard on getting the inclinations right to work well with being a ranger. I go into the rift after leveling up a decent amount as pure assassin after level 11, and I see pawns that have shittier equipment than me as fighters with 300 more strength than me. Is this really how pawns are gonna work on PC? Who can cheat our pawn the strongest?
Pretty happy with how she turned out
Okay, so. Is this game actually any good? I've seen people say if you like Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus, you'll like Dragon's Dogma. I frickin' LOVE Dark Souls and Shadow of the Colossus, but I've also been scorned by so many bland fantasy RPGs I can never trust anyone again. Please, give me a sales speech I can't turn down.
This anon made his mage quite good, been using her since the launch.
>go get Pawns
>everyone is a fucking Mage
Should make a Warrior or Strider Pawn. Might get more uses.
If anyone who's playing Sorcerer come across my pawn, I'd really appreciate it if you could hire her so she learn a few things with you.
Just got home from work and booting up the game now, let's be friends
Does the anon who made this have the sliders?
>Is Warrior as shit as people say?
I like fighter better.But that's just me
My pawn is a fighter as well.
Anyone else having issues with the Dualshock 4 and this game? My sprint randomly drops all the time. Happens with both the XInput driver as well as just using it direct. I've tested multiple controllers, cables, and USB ports, same thing.
How is this for my Pawn?
I think the problem was that I made her to look butch in my attempt at making a tom-boy, how is this?
>that's the mission where you get berserk armor
>yfw the armor is gone now
On the outside, it's an open world monster slaying game, around doing open world quests either by yourself, or with a party of minions, It offers full customization (Though not as good as Dark Souls sadly), and allows for many options in gameplay, It is a little easier, but it's also more traditional, you fuck up, you die, you reload to the last save you fucking dumbass.
It is loads of fun to play and offers a wide variety of playstyles.
Alright, here is the final shot with my girls.
>mfw I access the storage on Gran Soren
>shift for run; plus manual aiming
>left ctrl for primary skills

Default controls a shit, but if you can of course reconfigure them to your own liking.
Is anyone else getting a glitch where you cant see the character your making in the character creation screen?
I cant seem to find what fixes this. Tried verifying my game cache and that didn't fix it.
Tried to replicate my look in CC.
R8 me senpaitachi.
I don't have heterochromia in real life. I was trying to go for a "glass eye" look. The tattoo is to distract from it.
Made a lil shit to go fast and shoot shit.
Here is a full body shot. Tried my best to match the boss' height. I think this might be the closest I'm gonna be able to get.
anyone want to try and figure out how to recreate this pawn? I've been trying for the past hour and mine looks like shit compared to it.
So what is a really killer melee MK progression. I wanna play some sorc, but I know I'll get super bored of the channelling/cast time shit.
I started as a Mage, and I don't think I'll mind 10 levels of that for now.
Remember kids, always choose the armor with the best stats because it offers the best protection...
Danny, is that you?
Which is better, pure assassin or pure ranger for an archer build?
Assassin is going to have like no defenses and I'm not sure if thats okay, since its gonna be poking from so far away.
Meanwhile Ranger is going to be lacking in the
DPS unless I spend buttloads on Blast arrows?
Oh I'm not going to need protection for this one.
Well alright boys, pulling the trigger on Snake, can't believe they have this Moniker. Be back soon with his pawn.
Also just saw a familiar face in the rift...
Sorry, I should have been more specific. I'm already doing both of those things. Is there something I missing when loading dd onto cheatengine? All I've done is: run cheatengine, run dd, open dd.exe via cheatengine, and do those things you listed
Its kind of hard to see. What are the parts you can't get right?
Eyes seem to be 1 tick up on vertical position.
Nose is at a relatively normal distance
mouth is vertical position up 1 or 2 ticks.
Mouth should be findable by comparing it.
face shape should also be findable if you put the camera at the same angle.
Same for the nose.
Brows are spacing on the first or second tick
brow shape should be easy to find.
Ears is probably one of the first 3 ears.
Don't know about ear position.
Body seems to have a slightly narrower upper body than lower body.
stance is at 3
posture at 4 or 5
I will be pillaging and dragonforging soon enough.
>tfw taking my Mage through the entirety of Ranger to Rank 9 just to get Stability
I cant imagine this will turn out well.
Would you a rent? she a qt also utilitarian/challenger is bretty gud.
Re-asking from last thread.
Can anyone tell me how to get my pawn online?
I set the game to online in options, then restarted the game and even steam. It then let me connect to the servers, but my pawn's still got the red dot.
Creator of this preset here, I keep seeing this posted. Anything you guys would like to see improved? I was thinking about toning down the color maybe just a tiny bit.
If you can give my pawn a whirl i'd appreciate it, I need RC bad - http://steamcommunity.com/id/ndenizen
Has 100% sleep Resist and Legion's Might so she should be fine despite her low level.
Here are the Japanese voice files. I think I managed to find all of them. Hopefully someone who knows more about modding can use them.
Here's a sample to prove it's legit. You should be able to play it in MPC-HC.
>tfw aquisitor as primary inclination
>can't afford inclination potions because my pawn hasn't been rented yet
feel free to take her for a spin if you don't mind her picking up stuff all the time.
secondary inclination is utilitarian.
It's not that dramatic, really
>meet this girl randomly through a friend
>for some reason spend a lot of time together, became really good friends really fast, feel really happy around her
>feel like doing something about it, but feel like she's outta my league, so decide to start getting in shape in order to not make myself look like an idiot
>fast forward a year later, relatively satisfied with myself, decide to give it a shot because I'm tired of waiting
>go to a party on the earlier friend's house, obviously she's also going
>try not to be so obvious, go get a couple of drinks, come back
>mfw she's all over some redhead chick that's even more outta my league
>couple of days later find out they're dating
And that, my friends, is why you never use women as motivation for shit.
Still, it wasn't all bad. It got me outta NEET tier aesthetics, so I guess I got SOMETHING out of it.
Still hurts to remember though.
>all these lolis and pussiefied pretty boys
When my installation is finished I'm making Martin from Flesh + Blood. Only real men are welcome on my adventures.
What's the best bow I can get around lv20? I dun goofed and accidently sold the first bow for Ranger we can get on BBI with that weird guy. I had only got it and left BBI because I couldn't kill any monster on it.
New game, but my pawn is totally acting different. It's probably since I'M not acting the same way. I hope to get her to how she was before I started on the legit copy of the game. She's WAAAAYYYY too focused on support right now, and rarely deals damage.
Have you done ctrl+shift and tried to access Options? If not working, try what I did:
>ctrl+shift, keep pressing the keys
>use controller to access Options while holding the keys
It will change to a loading screen if it worked
If you keep using Help she becomes more passive, you can also sit at the special table to talk with her on the bar. First city has it and probably the others too
>that incredible Cheat Engine
that helped but i still cant get the face down correctly
>Make a facsimile of my waifu (roughly)
>Assume the height index is in cm cause it only makes sense so I get her as close to her canon height as possible
1.51m is tiny as fuck man. I suppose it doesn't help that I made my guy max height...
Every single one of your loli pawns is godawful. People who didn't make lolis, please sign in.
I open cheat engine, run the DDDA file, press f12 to activate script, then shift+ctrl click/enter (I have tried using controller) on menu Options but nothing happens.
What I'm missing?
>that mage pawn set up
You're on the right path, anon
>tons of people send me friend requests as they're playing
>have yet to have a single pawn return
Either they love him and they're taking it slow, the server's fucked, or nobody wants my pawn.
np. pic is my new waifu
No, inclinations can be changed. Easiest way is to buy elixirs that straight up give you desired inclinations, but they cost RC.
I'd rent her, but no name or steam Id, anon.
I know for a fact that my friends rent my pawn and returned her, but I've gotten no confirmation after sleep, nor did I get any RC so servers might be slow (it's a release day after all)
home key or McFX.cfg to toggle AO in v2. for performance: disable the depthbuffercalc in Common.cfg for a few FPS if you don't want depth effects(AO/DOF).
That's still bad, but not quite as bad because you're not subjecting me to your shitty little kid.
I still like you, though, for giving me something besides a 14 year old mage to look at.
>but I've gotten no confirmation after sleep, nor did I get any RC so servers might be slow
Well that sucks, because the pawn's I've returned I sent with their appropriate periapts.
How's my Arisen, /ddg/?
but then i'll get cutscene >manjaw
I was actually thinking
But maybe Raiden would be cool.
>running towards the fort when suddenly a blob of pesants spawns
Anyone wanna rent my pawn/rate
level 15 strider havent gotten to gran soren yet
Piratefag here, lvl 65 on first playthru ever
Farming the ur dragon at this point and this is somehow one of the most enjoyable games ive played for a very long time that doesnt involve intense grinding or really any kind of "meta"
if i buy the game will i be able to retain my save? will I have online features? is online ur dragon worth it? what other benefits are there besides ur dragon because i have zero interest in your filthy waifu pawns that will be useless 95% of the time anyway.
either way i'm glad i was able to pirate this game, i'd never have thought it was anything other than some shitty souls clone trying to cash in on the last few years of "woah it's hard" hack n slash rpgs
even outside of cutscenes she looks fatter in the face than she did in the character creation
:P oh well, can't fix it now
What should I answer for those pawn inclination questions if I want a healing mage?
I think im close enough now.
