File Description

This is a massive overhaul to Dark Souls, created by SeanPesce and the Overhaul Team. It serves as an unofficial patch for the Prepare to Die edition of the game, with a plethora of enhancements and fixes.


Dark Souls™: Remastered was released and Prepare to Die Edition can no longer be purchased on Steam, so we (the Dark Souls Overhaul team) have ceased development on the PtDE version of the mod and will be porting our work to the Remaster instead. This release is the last stable test build of the Overhaul mod for Prepare to Die Edition.

Overview

Dark Souls™: Remastered was released and Prepare to Die Edition can no longer be purchased on Steam, so we (the Dark Souls Overhaul team) have ceased development on the PtDE version of the mod and will be porting our work to the Remaster instead. This release is the last stable test build of the Overhaul mod for Prepare to Die Edition.

This build, referred to internally as the Quality of Life Preview build, contains only QoL changes such as bug fixes, anti-cheat, and many new configurable game settings. Although the Overhaul project is PvP-centric, the mod is still in the development stage, and many of the implemented multiplayer changes are unfinished and/or not thoroughly tested. For this reason, we have disabled all modifications that might affect multiplayer compatibility with the vanilla game (such as increased multiplayer phantom limit, the Bloodbourne rally system, moving while casting spells, etc).

Unfortunately, full documentation for console commands and configuration options hasn't been completed yet, but will be done at some point in the future.
InstallationTo install the mod, simply copy d3d9.dll, DS_Overhaul.dll, and d3d9_mod.ini into the Dark Souls game directory (DATA). To check for available updates, use the overhaul_update console command.

Features

BUG FIXES & QOL FEATURES
Automatic bonfire input fix (FPSFix+)
Lava brightness toggle (via startup config, hotkey, or console command)
Fix for ladder glitch when framerate is unlocked (EXPERIMENTAL)
"Unlimited" save slots
Gesture cancelling
Option to use left thumbstick (L3) to jump
Option for omni-directional rolling (EXPERIMENTAL - Mostly functional). Note: To avoid disrupting the PvP meta, omni-rolls are automatically disabled whenever a PvP phantom is present.
Option to disable item auto-equip
Multiple simultaneous item consumption & covenant tributes
Weapon durability HUD meters (like Dark Souls 2 & Dark Souls 3)
Increased memory limit (for mods that add new game assets)

BinocsTriggerBlock: Protects from hacked weapon effects that forcibly toggle binoculars when hit

Plugins: Custom DLLs can be configured as plugins and loaded by the d3d9.dll wrapper, allowing access to various overlay features like printing messages to the text feed or registering new hotkeys/console commands. Note: The Overhaul mod (DS_Overhaul.dll) is actually a plugin for the DirectX 9 wrapper (d3d9.dll).
CHALLENGE MODS (Disabled by default)

Black phantom enemies: Applies the black phantom visual effect and buffs to all enemies (including bosses)
