    First off, this is an exceptional mod.  I do cuss at times but that is only because I have so many hard wired memories from my many  vanilla play throughs.   It does require a guide at times, because the direction is quite cryptic (precious) to the author's own brain.  I really do not mind that so much as the OG ptde was the same way on our first play through.  BUT.....Whats the deal with the glitchy changing dialogue stuff?  Broken sentences patched with other statements from different dialogue moments?  It makes for this almost, kind of, David Lynch kind of vibe when npc's speak.   Sometimes the npc's have different voices all together.  Lautrec was using the New Londo plague guy's (cant remember his name sorry) old man voice.  Is this some kind of intended thing to yield different dialogue content?  Or am I high or something?  :)   

    Very impressive work.  Weird and not perfect but that's just fine for a neither world, post death fantasy experience

      You aren't high, that's just how the mod was made. I personally really dislike line splicing because it never sounds good and it takes you out of the game hard.

    Yeah this just wasn't fun for me at all. This entire mod can pretty much be summed up as Dark Souls 1: Scholar Of The First Sin Edition. There isn't really challenge to the mod more than throw spaghetti at a wall and see what sticks whether that comes from enemy placement, amount of enemies, bosses spawning before fog doors are passed, and a decent bunch more issues. Comments are kinda filled with them. Its a mod that starts out pretty strong but deviates harshly. Tons of backtracking but not in the sense that you're rediscovering the map. Its just bad progression. A lot of work went in to the mod but that doesn't mean it was good. Not to me at least. That all being said though this is a mod and its completely free. For anyone looking for a more tedious Scholar of The First Sin experience in Dark Souls 1 then this is the mod for you.

      What you're really trying to say is that you found out that you're not as good at Dark Souls as you thought.

      No, what he's saying is that this mod is trash and fails to understand what makes Souls games good in the first place. But be dense for the sake of it.

    hmmm, this is pretty rough chief. I want to play this mod, but it's a little too difficult for me. From firelink shrine to Taurus demon, I probably died at least 15 times, even worse the hellkite dragon made it ever harder until I found out I had to go a different route. I finally gave up after dying near the end of sen's fortress and just decided to set my controller down and stop.

    The idea is very nice, you yourself may have a personal philosophy on how a dark souls game should be played. But sadly for me, this mod isn't my philosophy. Rather than getting upset over the mod, I'm just more disappointed at myself for not being able to have the skills to keep up with what you envisioned. 

    I see some negative comments about this mod and I feel this pain as a modder myself because I don't think people should hate this mod because it's difficult, as it seems like you put a lot of time into it.

      It is pretty rough man.  For the most part I actually really dig the challenge.  But honestly, it kind of break the theme of the franchise a bit.  Dark souls, as a franchise, is all about "big risk big reward".  You will walk out on that sketchy ass ledge 400 feet from the ground in blight town for some epic item.   This mod seems to have a philosophy of "even bigger risk with much less reward"   They same sketchy 400 ft high balancing acting will get you a generic weapon you are usually not even specced for ;)    There is some questionable enemy ai that gives large things super speed that completely breaks the camera lock and view of perspective leading to one shot death.  (large rat in the sluiceworks for example).   I guess I am just a  glutton for punishment.  So I keep it up.   I completely understand where you are coming from though and also agree that sometimes the difficulty of this mod is more of a utility in "taking advantage of the engine glitches to f-you with them".  I create content as a modder too for other games, skyrim etc.  SO I know exactly how much work this was and really take my hat off to this Author.  It is actually quite cool mod, if not perfect.

    A few tips if you struggle:
    1. There is one Titanite Shard in Firelink Shrine, two in New Londo, use them to upgrade your weapon to +3 before even venture into Undead Burge.
    2. Don't feel ashamed to summon Beatrice to kill Moonlight butterfly. Grab the Grass Crest Shield.
    3. Go to Sen's Fortress ASAP, run past everything(unless you enjoy parry Serpent ass), grab the Faded Amber.(Large Amber)
    Spend all your souls to buy large titanite shards. In early game, weapon levels matter more than stats. Put your stats into endurance and vitality.
    4. Also, grab the Rusted Ring in the pits of Sen's Fortress.
    5. Head down to Queelag's Domain, kill her and her brother. Don't forget to activate the shortcut back to the Fair Lady.
    6. Head down to the Catacomb, now your have +8 ~ +10 weapon, you should feel comfortable to kill all the Necros. Kill Patches, get the Pale Eye Orb.
    7. You can upgrade your weapon to +15 before O&S. Kill the Giant on the balcony in Sen's Fortress who drops the Hawk Ring. Go to Sif's boss room and kill three cats. They drop the Silver Pendent. Trade this pendent to Snuggly for the Broken Pendent. Go to the DLC as usual(Yes you don't need Lord Vessel to gain access to DLC anymore). Buy Sen's Amber from Gough (30,000 souls).
    8. Red phantom bosses are generally obnoxious. I don't recommend fighting them unless you have katana(High damage, fast attack, bleeding). Red Phantom O&S feels impossible without a fast kill of Smough exploiting his bleeding weakness. Magic build works, but early game is very difficult.
    9. Late bosses hit pretty hard, so you don't need defense since it makes no difference. Instead equip the Black Dragon Ring which gives a huge damage boost but only removes your defense.
    10. Best weapon to kill Sunlight Gwyn and Wolf Knight is Zweihander/Claymore/Greatsword. They have an amazing thrust rolling attack. When Sunlight Gwyn throws a barrage of lighting beams, run towards him instead of rolling backward.
    11. I personally only find one bonfire missing, that is the one before the Forest Hunter covenant. And I probably missed it. Guys, one part of the vanilla game is the anxiety to find the bonfire. Stop complaining the placement of the bonfire and find it already.

      sorry, but some of the new fire placements for this mod and PTDA are questionable at best.

    I've put around a dozen hours into this mod and just decided to quit. The confusing progression and backtracking is just so tedious and sucked any fun out of the novelty. I also didn't care for any of the new lore. I wouldn't recommend this.

    This is my love/hate letter about this very great mod. PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU THINK IT IS TOO TOUGH!

    When I look back at my first playthrough I just finished, it mainly consisted of frustration going through a game I have seen a lot in the past, talking NG+20 or more when it just came out, discovering most of its ‘new content’ was still locked away. I know I should be excited to do another playthrough but the only thing I’m looking at now is an even tougher adventure which is putting me down tbh, then again I desperately want to bite the bullet and push through to unlock all of it’s other secrets.

    In the past ten years I changed and now own my own company and thus have barely any time to play as much as I did back then. I think I can speak for a lot of fans from back then they also have less time now, but that is just something I assume. It’s tough meddling with a memory of good times people once had, and it is a very brave undertaking to try and enhance this experience.

    Please hear this suggestion, if the content would be all discovered in perhaps say 3 playthroughs without the need of wiki’s (so with way more objective based clues instead of the insane cryptic stuff) it would be the greatest Dark Souls mod, or even mod in general ever created. It would enhance my Dark Souls memory and add to the experience instead of adding frustration, in my memory Dark Souls wasn’t so frustrating, I remember the great moments it had, not the many deaths… well I do remember them not going to lie now :P

    I personally believe it would reach even more people if it wasn’t as crazy punishing as it is now, at least not the first 3 playthroughs or so. I mean go crazy on NG+8 which only the hardcore crowd touches, I just hope this mod doesn’t completely disappears into the niche because it deserves more attention and not the attention 'oh it's so freaking hard' but rather 'wow that added some great story to something I already loved' because it really is in there just stuffed away behind a very tough tough layer.

    I would suggest the following mod to 'some' players if storyline is what you seek. Dark Souls is all about trial and error we know that for 13 years now since 2009's Demon's Souls but when the errors are clouding the story you may be looking for this might be for you. I recommend to try the least assisting version of this mod first and see if that works for you. In the end we are modding, make your own game, I get the git gud guys, I am one of them but a lot of people are missing out on great story telling because they are not as good which is a shame. And pssst, you don't have to tell anyone you are using it ;)

    Easy Mode Mod

    This was not the way it was intended to be played and probably messes with some intended mechanics.
    Only use when you're really stuck and use it with? Mod Manager, this way you can turn it off again without messing with you're current install.
