Archthrones is a retelling of the Dark Souls universe and comprehensive total game mod for Dark Souls 3 complete with its own lore that is informed by the
deepest secrets of the Dark Souls mythos. New enemies, bosses, armor, weapons and spells are only the beginning.

The design of the game has been inspired by Demon's Souls level structure. With the richness of NPC questlines and depth of our own level design, the player
will find engaging complexity within the varied worlds. Relive some of the most memorable areas of the entire trilogy within one mod, with reinterpretations of iconic characters and some interpretations you've only seen in item descriptions. All made possible by a talented team that includes experienced concept artists, writers, programmers, composers, and voice actors within the Souls community.

Experience a world where you, The Emissary, must hunt down the Gods of yore. Pulling from every single game in the series and including mechanics and animations from other accomplished Fromsoft games, the team has also worked on highly memorable boss battles and complex combat encounters.

  • Nonlinear Progression: Explore each throne at your own pace, and in your desired order. Easiest to most difficult or vice versa, the choice is up to you.
  • New Weapons: The player can find new weapons dropped from certain enemies, NPCs, and transposed from certain boss souls. We encourage you to hold onto those boss souls until you can transpose them.
  • New Armor: Instead of porting returning armor sets from previous Fromsoftware games, we have decided to focus on creating entirely new armor sets for the world of Archthrones. Also cloth physics.
  • New Bosses: Charge headfirst into 17 new boss fights and more to come. Be sure to make use of all the new combat features to ensure your success in these endeavors .
  • New Combat Mechanics: Guard counters, perfect blocking, deflection, back-step guard cancelling, and various re-balances and fixes to nearly every weapon class in the game.See this document for a more detailed summary of these changes.
  • New NPCs and Side Quests: All new NPCs are fully voiced by some guest appearances you might recognize… We wanted our worlds to feel lively and responsive for both new and returning players. As such, we highly encourage you to frequently chat with the residents of both firelink shrine, and the various Archthrones as you progress through your journey.
  • New and Re-imagined Worlds: Immerse yourself within 5 memorable worlds that draw inspiration from the Fromsoftware mythos. Once again experience that classic Dark Souls anxiety that accompanies your last ditch effort to find that next bonfire. Powerful foes and stalwart allies await you in these slightly familiar and unfamiliar lands.
  • Q: Will this mod ban me for playing online?
A: No. The private server ensures that you are unable to connect to FromSoftware's servers. This mod also uses its own save files. Bringing your
Archthrones save files to your vanilla save folder and playing on vanilla ds3 servers will ban you. Bringing your vanilla save files to your Archthrones
save folder may cause issues to the mod.

  • Q: Can I play this mod with my friends?
A: Yes. Currently this mod uses a private server that will connect you to other Archthrones players. You cannot connect to other players playing vanilla
dark souls 3. Currently, our private server only supports cooperative play via white sign soapstone. Support for duels, invasions, and other
multiplayer activities is planned for future updates. Note: We are using DS3OS and it may not be stable with a large player count.

  • Q: Does this mod cost money to play?
A: No. This Mod is available to all for free and will always be. If you would like to support the mod, our Paetron and Ko-Fi at the bottom of the page.

  • Q: Can you play this mod on consoles?
A: No. Only the Steam version of Dark Souls III is supported. You can either play it on Windows or Steam Deck/Linux.

Archthrones Demo

Diese Mod kommt mit Lazy Loader. Die eigentlichen Archthrones dlls befinden sich im dllMods-Ordner.

1. Stell sicher, dass Dark Souls III frisch mit beiden DLCs installiert ist.
1a. Du kannst die Spieldaten von Steam in den Eigenschaften überprüfen lassen.

2. Kopier den Inhalt der zip-Datei in das "Game"-Verzeichnis. Das ist das Verzeichnis, in dem sich DarkSoulsIII.exe befindet.

3. Stell die Spielsprache in den Eigenschaften von Dark Souls III in Steam auf Englisch
3a. Weitere Sprachen werden mit der Zeit noch hinzugefügt.

4. Fertig! Die dll wird die Spieldaten von unserem Server herunterladen, sofern dieser nicht überlastet ist. Falls der Server nicht erreichbar sein sollte, kannst du die Spieldaten auch manuell über NexusMods herunterladen.
4a. Falls das Spiel wiederholt abstürzt, solltest du die exe auf Version 1.15 downpatchen. Es gibt bekannte Physics-Bugs mit 1.15.1 und 1.15.2.
Es gibt zwei Möglichkeiten um das Spiel zu downpatchen:
1: Lade the 1.15-exe von hier herunter: https://soulsspeedruns.com/darksouls3/crash-fix
2: Benutz die Steam-Konsole: https://soulsspeedruns.com/darksouls3/downpatching

Wenn du die Spieldaten manuell heruntergeladen hast (siehe Punkt 4):
1. Lege einen Ordner namens "archthrones" im "Game"-Verzeichnis an. Das ist das Verzeichnis, in dem sich DarkSoulsIII.exe befindet. 

2. Extrahiere den Inhalt von "archthrones.zip" in diesen neuen Ordner. Danach sollte es in diesem Ordner einen Unterordner namens "_archthrones" geben.

Steam Deck/Linux-Benutzer:
Alle bisherigen Instruktionen sollten hier auch funktionieren. Du wirst desweiteren folgenden Befehl benötigen:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="dinput8.dll=n,b" %command%

Kopiere diesen in die Startoptionen des Spiels in Steam und wähle unter "Kompatibilität" "Proton 7.0-6" aus.

PS: Die mitgelieferte dll sollte mit allen gültigen (und auch internationalen) Steamfassungen von Dark Souls III Version 1.15 und aufwärts funktionieren.

Bitte gib diese Mod oder ihre Dateien nicht weiter. Leite andere stattdessen zur Mod-Seite auf NexusMods weiter.

아치쓰론 데모

해당 모드는 레이지 로딩 기술로 배포됩니다. Archthrones dll 파일 자체는 dllMods 폴더 안에 있습니다.

1.기본 상태의 다크소울3하고 DLC들이 설치되어 있어야합니다
1a.스팀에서 무결성 검사 돌려서 빠진게 없는지 체크하는 것도 괜찮습니다
(스팀에서 다크소울3 우클릭>속성…>설치된 파일에서 무결성검사 가능)

2.파일압축을 풀고 안에 있는 파일들을 전부 "Game" 폴더로 복사하세요. DarkSoulsIII.exe가 있는 폴더입니다
(스팀에서 다크소울3 우클릭>관리>로컬파일보기로 찾기 가능)

3.스팀에서 속성으로 들어가고 게임 언어를 영어로 바꿔주세요
(스팀에서 다크소울3 우클릭>속성…>일반에서 언어변경 가능)
3a.한국어는 점점 업데이트 될 예정입니다

4.이 앞 즐거움 있다. dll파일이 모드서버에서 알아서 파일을 다운받을 겁니다. 서버에 문제가 있다면 NexusMods에서 수동설치 하면 됩니다.
4a.게임이 계속 터진다면 DarksoulsIII.exe를 1.15버전으로 다운그레이드 해야합니다. 1.15.1 하고 1.15.2 버전에서 물리버그가 터져서 생기는 문제입니다
다운그레이드 하는 방법들:
1.이 사이트에서 1.15 버전을 다운 받으세요 https://soulsspeedruns.com/darksouls3/crash-fix
2.스팀콘솔을 써도 됩니다 https://soulsspeedruns.com/darksouls3/downpatching

게임파일을 수동설치 하는 방법:
1.”archthrones”라는 이름의 폴더를 “Game”폴더에 생성해주세요. DarkSoulsIII.exe가 있는 폴더입니다.

2.”archthrones.zip”파일의 압축을 “archthrones”폴더에 풀어주세요. 폴더 안에 “_archthrones”라는 폴더가 있어야합니다.

스팀덱/리눅스에서 설치하기:

위에 나온대로 설치하면 됩니다. 그리고 아래의 커맨드를 입력하세요

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="dinput8.dll=n,b" %command%

스팀 실행옵션에서 호환성 탭 아래에 있는 "Proton 7.0-6"을 선택하세요

PS: 다크소울 3의 국가버전에 관계없이 1.15나 그 위의 버전이고 스팀에서 정식구매 했다면 dll은 잘 작동할겁니다. 

모드의 무단배포를 금합니다. 모드를 찾는 분들한테는 NexusMods에서 설치하라고 알려주세요.

What to do if you keep getting game crashes on 1.15.2
Archthrones should run fine on 1.15.2, but the stability of it has been known to vary from person to person. If you happen to be one of the unlucky ones and 1.15.2 is giving you game crashes, then you should try downpatching your DarkSoulsIII.exe to ver. 1.15.
Here are two different ways you can do this:
Saves and Connections
  • All connections are routed to a custom server running ds3os
  • All save data is separated from base game settings. By default this is "%appdata%/Roaming/Archthrones"
