What is this DaS_GG? (Based on a cheat table made by "notPhokz" )

If you've ever heard of gun game from Counter-Strike or CoD it's basically like that, but for Dark Souls and without guns. This mod changes the leveling mechanic in Dark Souls to a more arcade like game mode where you gain levels from getting successful hits on enemies and lose them from being hit or losing a lot of health from a fall. The higher your level, represented by your humanity in-game, the better random weapons and random armor you'll get as well as increased stats, health, and stamina. For example, you start at level 1 wielding a very low tier weapon and no armor then after smacking an enemy 3 times you level up granting you a slightly better random weapon and you can continue to level up until you get hit or reach the cap. The level cap, amount of "heals" you get, and damage level are upgraded by killing bosses (which bosses give what rewards is a secret though).

This is what the mod looks like overlayed on the game.

How to use it
Download it here and open the mod while Dark Souls is open. If Dark Souls is not running then the mod will not open properly and also make sure you give the mod 5-15 seconds to properly open up and run it's setup routine (once you can see the mod window it's all good). Once it's open you'll be given an option for the simple or advanced difficulty settings. I recommend choosing simple and playing on Hard, this is the difficulty I tested and think is the most fun, or if you don't want to mix and match armor sets then choose advanced and go with default settings.Okay now this is super important before clicking start you have to be holding a weapon, a shield, and any full set of armor, so wait until you grab the shield in the asylum before clicking the start button or else your weapons will break. From there you're good to play and your weapons will never break. I tested this mod a lot, but I still expect some glitches, so if you encounter any, please comment here and I will fix it asap.

Anticipated Questions

Q: I'm looking for a lobosjr level challenge, but don't want it to be super grindy. What settings do you recommend?
A: Extra unlockable heals unchecked, reset level on fog enter checked(use own discretion on this one though), full heals on level unchecked, levels lost on hit 3-5, hits to level 1.5 or 1. If you are looking for a SL1 difficulty level of challenge, then just choose simple and pick Hard.
....................................
Q: How do I heal?
A: Level up, or use estus if you have heals unlocked.
....................................
Q: The mod is not opening?
A: Something went wrong, so open task manager and make sure all instances of the mod are closed and restart the mod with the game open.
....................................
Q: How do I see what level I am?
A: Your level is indicated by your soft humanity level in-game, the number on the mod is just the highest level you are allowed to reach currently.
....................................
Q: What happens if I get cursed?
A: You cannot level until you get un-cursed.
....................................
Q: How do I get more damage, a higher max level, and heals?
A: Kill more bosses, dlc included, but note that not all bosses give you a reward.
....................................
Q: What does the hits to level adjustment do?
A: It multiples the amount of hits you need to level up by the number you choose. This is mainly an annoyance to raise this imo, but if you enjoy the grind then raise away.
....................................
Q: Why is this heavy weapon in a higher teir then this other higher dps dex weapon?
A: Because I like big weapons that do lots of single hit damage.
....................................
Q: What does the levels lost on hit adjustment do?
A: Pretty much in the name, but you lose that many levels every time you get hit until you're back to level 1.
....................................
Q: I can't heal, but I have estus?
A: True, you can unlock estus usage to insta level up by beating certain bosses, but once you use your max amount you can still drink it and it will do nothing. Resting at a bonfire resets your heals.
....................................
Q: My weapon broke what do I do?
A: If you started the mod correctly this should never happen, but you should close the mod then re-equip weapons shields and armor into every slot then re-open the mod.
....................................
Q: What the hell the claw does no damage?
A: If you are 2 handing a weapon and level up into the claw or caestus you'll still be 2 handing even though the weapon doesn't allow that, so just 1 hand it to allow damage to be dealt.

Hope you all enjoy it! and report glitches with the process to replicate them :)
