FAQ for issues with installing PTDE Mods

How to Install (Video Tutorial)

How to Install (Text Tutorial)

Step 1
Step 2A (NOT using DSFix)
  • Rename "SOTE_PTDE.dll' to "DINPUT8.dll
Step 2B (Using DSFix)
  • Open "DSFix.ini" in the Dark Souls "DATA" folder
  • Find the "dinput8dllWrapper" option
  • Change "dinput8dllWrapper none" to "dinput8dllWrapper SOTE_PTDE.dll"
Step 3
  • Run the game. Turn off anti-aliasing in settings to prevent issues with DSFix.
  • Check if the mod files were installed correctly, the title screen image should now include "Shadow of the Eclipse"
  • Check if the .dll was installed correctly, leveling up endurance should not increase equip weight, but leveling up mobility (resistance) will.
Step 4 (optional)
  • If you want to use dsmfix or DarkSoulsMouseFix, just place the files in PTDE's DATA folder and they will automatically be chained.
