Cinders aims to provide a fresh experience through Dark Souls 3.

Progression has been changed to allow for more flexibility with your route through the main game. After reaching Firelink Shrine, you will now be able to go to: either High Wall of Lothric or Undead Settlement immediately. Throughout the world there are new warps that allow you to travel through the world of DS3 in a non-linear fashion, letting you decide your own route through content.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome.

If you do want to play online, you should use Cinders as your password to match with others using the mod.


Why isn't text displaying correctly?
The mod only supports English localization, so you need to switch your in-game language to English for text to appear correctly.

Why isn't X character working properly?
Due to the new progression options, it's easier to end the character
questlines accidentally. Take note of this and speak the the characters
you need early and refrain from entering the later areas out of order if
you want to complete a character's questline.

You'll need to create a vanilla save game before installing Cinders.
Without doing this, you'll get the "Save Data is Corrupted" message.

Make sure you have 7zip installed and use it to open the zip file.

Drop in your Dark Souls III Game directory: ~\steamapps\common\DARK SOULS III\Game\

Delete the dinput8.dll to remove Mod Engine and delete the Cinders folder to remove the files.
