Permissions and credits
Dark Souls Drag and Drop Mod Manager v1.0.5 - DSDAD v1.0.5

Added manual launch option for non-Steam users. This way DSDAD will try to install the mods to your specified non-Steam version of the game, but you'll have to launch it manually.

Requires the .NET framework to work properly.

File types that work with DSDAD:
-FSB(sound mods)
-MSB(enemy and/or object placement mods, suh as Perma-Vagrant-Gravelord, DS - Prepare to Die Again, EPiC - Enemy Placement Changes)
-PNG,TGA,DDS(DSFix texture mods)
-DCX(compressed format, most of the gamefiles are DCX files)

Any files extracted from DCX files:
-*.PARAMBND(parameter mods, such as Item Randomizer mods, Aggression mod, Alternative starting classesAll enemies are Gravelord)
-*.EMEVD(event mods, such as HotPocketRemix's Estus Quest, and CoelyPuffs' Better Chaos)
-*.PARTSBND(modelswap mods, such as Crown of Dusk Replacer)
-*.MSGBND(text mods, such as Improved texts, or custom translations.)
-*.ANIBND(animation mods, such as Gesture Cancel)

How to use:
1. Drag and drop raw mod files onto the program.
2. Launch Dark Souls via DSDAD.

How to uninstall mods: 
DSDAD automatically does that once the game has finished running. Because of this, it is recommended not to close DSDAD before Dark Souls! DSDAD has a "Restore Dark Souls" option if for whatever reason the program crashed (or was forced to close). This operation will restore previously created backup files.
