About this mod

A posture bar mode for the Elden Ring game, creates new user interface elements above the head of the enemy, which indicate how much posture damage the enemy remains.

Permissions and credits



The mod was created with the intention of presenting enemy posture as a UI element inside the game, as for me it increases enjoyment of the combat system when I can have such information visible and be capable of reacting more consciously to actual enemy state rather than try to blindly assume it or spend thousands of years learning by feeling the enemy's current posture damage state. As I play-tested it, I also quickly learned the value of playing aggressively and using more posture damage techniques and weapons, which I believe ultimately made me better at playing it.

The mod does not have ambitions to change any game data; it is only used to display it, so do not request such changes. Modularity is a nice thing; if you wish to change how the game behaves in terms of stagger values, etc., you can do that in another mod and still use it just to display data.

The mod should be mostly compatible with other mods as it does not modify data. It may only cause issues when using a mod that heavily changes HUD elements.


  • Enemy entity bars may "shake" a lot during movement, if that is a case, then you should modify PositionFixingMultiplier values inside PostureBarModConfig.ini. General rule is that if posture bars seems to drag behind health bars, then you should increase those values, if they tend to go ahead of health bars, then you should decrease it. Remember it is multiplier so it should be over 0, it can be real number. I recommend testing it first on horizontal axis (x), then on vertical axis (y). Remember that they always might be slightly out of sync, but you can make it as low as possible
  • You can start game in Offset Testing mode by switching OffsetTest value to true inside PostureBarModConfig.ini. It shall allow you to test parameters inside game, rather then by changing them inside .ini file and restarting game. During Offset Testing you can change what values you modify by pressing Page Down/Up keys, you can modify values with Arrow keys, and save currently modified offset to .ini with Insert key. Refer to menu on top-left during playing for more information
  • Refer to Possible issues chapter below if you have some issue first, before posting about it


First you will have to remember that you cannot play on official servers using this (or in fact any) mod.
To install mod you will have to follow this steps:

  • Download Elden Mod Loader and extract it's content where game .exe is
  • Download this mod .zip file from Nexus or Github and extract it's content inside "mods" folder (from Elden Mod Loader), on steam path will be something like that "steamapps\common\ELDEN RING\Game\mods"
  • DISABLE ANTI CHEAT -  you can for instance use Anti-cheat toggler
  • Run game

Possible issues

There are some issues you might encounter after installing the mod. First, you have to remember that if the game was updated not too long ago, the last version of the mod might not have been deployed yet, and it just won't work. If for any reason the game crashes for you, especially while starting the game, you can try turning logs on inside the PostureBarModConfig.ini file and reporting the issue on the git or Nexus mod pages.

Here are some common issues you might encounter:

  • Cannot return to game after minimalizing in Full Screen mode - unfortunately I do not know yet have solution for that, I can only recommend you to use borderless or windowed mode, where this issue does not happen
  • Boss bar is not well aligned with health bar - it might happen especially when using other mods that changes those positions, like Reforged. You will have to set new value inside .ini file for first FirstBossScreen. You can also use special tool that can help you find proper offset inside game, by setting OffsetTest to true inside .ini file
  • Bars in general are not aligned - most likely mod auto position or / and auto scaling has failed, in that case you might have to set them yourself, to figure out how those parameters should be set you can set OffsetTest to true and start game, from there you will have some options to change offsets and save them inside .ini file. In extreme case where nothing seems to work, you should report this issue on git or nexus mod page.
  • Bars are aligned when static, but they shake a lot while moving - most likely it happens due to position fixing algorithm, you can turn it off inside .ini file, but then bars will always slightly drag after health bars OR you can try to adjust modifier values PositionFixingMultiplier inside .ini file or inside game by setting OffsetTest to true inside .ini file (remember to save those values). If posture bars tend to drag behind health bar then PositionFixingMultiplier should be bigger, if they tend to go ahead of health bar, then PositionFixingMultiplier should be lower
  • Mod does not work / Mod crashes on start - report issue on git or nexus mod page, best to include logs, you can generate those by setting Log to true inside .ini file
