About this mod

A collection of features, all of which can be individually enabled/disabled. Rematch Bosses. Stocked shop: start the game with any gear you want. Bonfire-like lamps: rest, warp to other lamps, level up, and upgrade weapons directly at lamps. Auto restock vials so farming is no longer required. And more!

Permissions and credits
Certain features of this mod have not been thoroughly tested (I can't test 2500 dungeons myself). There may be some bugs. Backup your game files and save files before installing. It is highly recommended to start a new character after installing or updating this mod.

Installation:
Easiest method is using GoldHEN's AFR plugin. Install plugins by following the instructions on this page. FTP to your PS4, make sure the path "/data/GoldHEN/AFR" exists. Within this directory, create a folder with the name of your game version's Title ID (e.g. CUSA03173 or CUSA00900). Place the dvdroot_ps4 folder from my mod into the folder you just created and enjoy!

Access the hidden mod menu by bowing to the doll before speaking with her. This allows you to enable or disable any of the features in this mod.
*[0.6]* The default settings for this mod can be permanently changed using the newly included BBEnhancementSettings tool. This tool was developed using and includes SoulsFormats (appreciation and credit to TKGP ♡ on the soulsmodding discord for creating SoulsFormats). Settings changed with this tool will only affect new characters.

*[0.6]* Boss Rematches:
Rematch any boss that you've already defeated at any time. Can be activated from that specific boss's lamp, or from the new Broken Lamp located in the Hunter's Dream. Chalice dungeon bosses can only be rematched directly from their respective lamps. An insight will be consumed every time a rematch is started, if you have any. More to come with this feature in the future. *[0.6.1]* Added "distorted memories" feature preview. Simultaneously fight both phases of Gascoigne, Ludwig, or Orphan of Kos. This feature is very experimental and incomplete.

*[0.6]* Restock Blood Vials and Bullets:
Bullets and vials will be restocked every time you respawn, similar to estus or flasks. No more farming! Side-effect feature: Item Drop Hunt (*[0.6.1]* this feature is now optional). Unreachable item drops are left at every lamp. Some are very obvious, but others are very well hidden. Try to find them all! :)

*[0.6]* Rest at Lamps:
You can now "rest" at lamps, similar to bonfires or grace points. Enemies will de-agro as soon as you rest, and you'll be forced to reawaken once the lamp menu is closed. This means enemies will be respawned, but you'll be restocked. Be sure to check out the options for this feature.

*[0.6]* Unlocked Chalice Dungeon Lever Doors:
For those who only want to rush the bosses.

Auto New Game Plus:
Toggling this option off will prevent the game from starting new game plus immediately after defeating the final boss. Speak with the doll after completing the final boss for the option to begin new game+.

Stocked Shop:
Enable this feature to allow purchase of all weapons, spells, armors, chalices, ritual materials, and upgrade materials at the bath messengers for no cost at any point in the game. *[0.6]* Now includes bulk acquisition menu options for trick weapons, secondary weapons, armors, hunter's tools, chalices, chalice materials, and upgrade materials.

Enhanced Lamps:
  • Adds a menu to all lamps that provide the functions listed below. These options, as well as the entire menu, can be toggled on or off in the hidden mod menu.
  • Warp to (almost) any other activated lamp. Only exception is that it is not currently possible to warp from a chalice dungeon lamp to a lamp in a different chalice dungeon. Reawaken and warping within a dungeon works.
  • Reawaken - rewarp to the current lamp. Respawns enemies and restores health.
  • Chalice rituals in the warp menu. Full menu only available at non-chalice lamps. Within a chalice dungeon, you can now access the full menu for that current dungeon. Warning: do not remove the chalice from the dungeon while you are in it. If you do, you will have to wait for your character to die in the void and respawn at the dream. You will lose all of your echoes. *[0.6.1]* Removing the chalice from the dungeon you are currently in should now immediately return you to the Hunter's Dream
  • Level up
  • Access the workshop to upgrade and repair weapons, change gems, and extract arcane haze.
  • Change character runes
  • Access the storage box
  • Buy and sell from the echoes shop, buy from the insight shop, change messenger appearance, and access the stocked shop (if enabled)
  • Change your character's appearance. Experimental feature. It's difficult to see the menu or your character, and face geometry doesn't seem to update until reload. Best use is switching between saved presets.

Prevent Lamp Deactivation:
Prevent Lamp Deactivation: Enable this to always allow warping to the following lamps: Oedon Chapel and Grand Cathedral during Eileen's quest events and Hypogean Gaol after Rom. Hypogean Gaol lamp will no longer break and can be used normally at any point in the game. Oedon Chapel and Grand Cathedral won't be usable until defeating the nearby opponent, however.

Fixes:
*[0.6]*
  • Improved loading speeds when using lamp warping in many areas. Especially in chalice dungeons when reawakening and warping within the dungeon.
  • Deactivated lamps can no longer be warped to when prevent lamp deactivation feature is off
  • Hypogean Gaol lamp can now be activated after being broken (only when prevent lamp deactivation is enabled)
  • Character now rotates correctly towards the lamp when warping in chalice dungeons
*[0.6.1]*
  • Can now warp to chalice dungeons from all lamps in Old Yharnam
  • Rest now works at all Nightmare of Mensis lamps, Lumenwood Garden lamp, and Hunter's Nightmare lamp
  • Rest animations corrected for the lamps in Hunter's Nightmare
  • Unswapped warp points when resting at Hypogean Gaol and Advent Plaza lamps
  • Unswapped warp points when resting at Logarius' Seat and Vileblood Queen's Chamber
  • Minor tweaks to resting to make animations less redundant
*[0.6.2]*
  • Unreversed "unlock chalice doors" option in settings tool
  • Broken Lamp Maria option starts Maria fight instead of Orphan
*[0.6.3]*
  • CUSA03713 lamp prompt is no longer ?ActionEventInfo?
  • Unbroke the warp menu after previous update
  • Fixed minor inconsistencies with resting and warping

Randomizer Version: (not updated for the most recent release yet, planning to include this as a feature of the settings tool in the future)
I wrote a script that utilizes DSEventScriptTools (credit to HotPocketRemix) and Yabber (credit to JKAnderson) to unpack the files generated by the randomizer (credit to Sepukkake) and apply my mod changes. You will have to download all of those tools separately from mine. Download and run the randomizer tool with the settings you like. Next, download the randomizer version of my mod, move the patcher folder to the randomizer tool's folder, so that it is next to the dvdroot_ps4 and netcoreapp3.1 folders. Unpack both sets of the tools linked above into the same directory as my patcher.exe (all exes should be in the same directory). Run patcher.exe and it will hopefully generate a new set of files in the dvdroot_ps4-enhanced folder. Install these files the way you would normally install the randomizer files.

The randomizer version is not very well tested and there are likely to be some bugs. Randomizing the shop won't work, as my mod overwrites the shop's param file. I have no idea what will happen if talk data is randomized.

Folder/file structure for usage with randomizer:


Coming Someday (maybe)
  • Less jank
  • Full chalice dungeon support

Known issues:
  • Chalice can be removed from within dungeon
  • Stump messenger skin doesn't update when changed at lamps until reload
  • Change appearance camera and background issues
  • Doll's dialog doesn't update after defeating Gehrman (auto ng+ disabled)
  • Sometimes a lamp only allows warping to the Hunter's Dream (quit and reload to fix) or the character rotates towards the wrong lamp to warp
    - should be fixed
  • Prevent lamp deactivation is buggy
