    What the hell? The text is all fucked!

  13. Raony99 (25 Oct 2016, 0:08)

  14. max (25 Oct 2016, 0:09)

  15. Son of Rome (25 Oct 2016, 0:46)

    Is there a way to play online currently with other friends on the cracked version?

  16. XBlade (25 Oct 2016, 1:03)

    After I update my game, the text turn into gibberish, fix?

  17. Draveni (25 Oct 2016, 1:35)

    So I did download it, and installed it. The label right bellow the version says ASHES OF ARIANDEL, but there is an option in the menu labels PURCHASE DLC. I didn’t know if this worked cause it deleted all my saved characters, I can’t confirm if its unlocked. Someone did play in the dlc area with this?

  18. oawkid (25 Oct 2016, 1:57)

    mmm text is fucked

  19. guga (25 Oct 2016, 2:22)

    good work

  23. Bruce Payne (25 Oct 2016, 4:33)

    My text is fine, below my version it says ASHES OF ARIANDEL but like the poster above it also says PURCHASE DLC on the starting menu. I noticed in steam_emu file that unlockalldlc=0 was set by default – I changed it to =1 but the NPC supposed to spawn for starting the DLC still isn’t showing up. Not sure what’s wrong…

  24. rokusho95 (25 Oct 2016, 4:38)

    thank a lot DLC worked!!!

  25. Sheept (25 Oct 2016, 4:49)

    Any crack online yet?

  30. stranger (25 Oct 2016, 6:15)

    I had missing text UI text bug. Reinstalled and updated game in listed order and it works.

  31. Peppe (25 Oct 2016, 6:43)

    can I step from 1.04 to 1.08 or i have to download all update before installing Ashes?

  32. MindTwister (25 Oct 2016, 6:44)

    for me, the installation deleted most of the game files and I need to completely reinstall the whole game…

  33. James (25 Oct 2016, 9:05)

    Pretty much fucked me, deleted files that were needed to run the game. what the fuck is going on with CODEX?

  34. stranger (25 Oct 2016, 9:08)

    I could not trigger npc spawn on my old save games to enter dlc. Managed to bypass it with cheat engine by unlocking bonfire in new zone. After that created new character to test and had no problems finding npc.

  35. LordSabathan (25 Oct 2016, 9:34)

    its not working..i installed the update 1.08 and the dlc ..but the npc its just not there and cant start the dlc

  36. Enough! (25 Oct 2016, 11:21)

    NPC’s not showing, FIX THIS!!!

  37. Enough! (25 Oct 2016, 11:27)

    Wait, I fixed it.

  44. Shanks (25 Oct 2016, 12:51)

    is it online crack???

  45. Occult (25 Oct 2016, 13:20)


  46. Ronald Moore (25 Oct 2016, 13:40)

    There are NPC’s invasions in this version?

  47. Bruce Payne (25 Oct 2016, 14:43)

    OK so when I changed unlockalldlc=0 to =1, I still couldn’t get the NPC to spawn on my old character no matter what, even though the DLC was installed.

    If you have the same problem and really want to play with your old character without having to restart a new game and reinstall, etc, use Cheat Engine 6.6 and the following steps:

    – Make sure you installed Cheat Engine 6.6, restart your computer, run as admin
    – Google “Zanza Dark Souls 3 Cheat Engine Table”, you should find a post on the cheatengine.org forum
    – Make sure DS3 is running.
    – Download his cheat table, double click and it should open up automatically in Cheat Engine 6.6
    – In Cheat Engine, click the PC icon, and open your existing DarksoulsIII.exe in the menu
    – Now click “Unlock all bonfires” and you’ll find DLC areas in the bonfire

  48. DemonicCharr (25 Oct 2016, 15:26)

    When i start the game i just get a black screen and if i click anywhere it stops responding, anyone have a fix?

  49. Peppembaja (25 Oct 2016, 15:42)

    I have problem with the text… “FPD Text_message” etc , and the npc don t showinn at spawn… how i can fix this?? please skidrow answer me i want to play

  50. Hentaku (25 Oct 2016, 16:07)

    finally, thx very much guys, you are the best

  51. Jajec (25 Oct 2016, 16:11)

    I was able to run the dlc.
    In my case I had to manually copy the crack.
    Try it maybe will help.

  52. walavic (25 Oct 2016, 16:23)

  56. xeno (25 Oct 2016, 17:57)

    Will this work with the steam version?

  57. Palynzer (25 Oct 2016, 18:25)

    wtf with the text?

  58. James (25 Oct 2016, 18:58)

    Be careful. DO NOT CANCEL the installation, it will erase all the core files and you’ll have to reinstall the game.

  59. Ashuraman (25 Oct 2016, 19:26)

    To everyone still having issues with the DLC: Re install the base game and ALL it’s updates and everything will start working fine

  60. agon (25 Oct 2016, 20:06)

  61. oawkid (25 Oct 2016, 20:39)

  62. walavic (25 Oct 2016, 20:55)

  63. Ashuraman (25 Oct 2016, 21:06)

    oawkid you don’t need the netfix, just the update patches

  64. ytrtytryrt (25 Oct 2016, 21:15)

    run time error… help..plz

  65. Buddy (25 Oct 2016, 22:11)

    I get the NPC triggered, if I start a new game. But before all this my save files were gone (I have backup files). I can´t load my old save files as usually, while you load another char. Is there any fix?

  66. Caelus (25 Oct 2016, 22:54)

    How many people above actually READ the damn Instruction???? THIS DLC REQUIRES ALL PAST UPDATES!!!!! Yup, from v1.03 to v1.08, If you missed one update then its fucked

  67. Musame (25 Oct 2016, 23:27)

    Skidrow can i use it with my original Ds3 version?

  68. demon_dark_blood_souls (26 Oct 2016, 4:09)

    for anyone that get the text error it’s because you didn’t install all the update, just install the update from 1.03 to 1.08, and it will work fine 🙂

  69. E (26 Oct 2016, 6:35)

    it works if you download all the updates and install them in order

  70. Palynzer (26 Oct 2016, 7:34)

    Patch 1.04 dont install after 1.03

  71. Aditya (26 Oct 2016, 7:44)

    i have a a backup of my game. But it doesn’t work even after replacing the file. Is there any fix to run the new updated game with old saves??

  72. Black Cat (26 Oct 2016, 7:58)


    have a problem trying to laucnh the dlc.
    Until it’s installation, I had a 1.08 patched game working properly.

    Since, this message first appeared :

    [email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected] can’t be found in fmodex64.dll

    So I found and installed the latest of the library and then had this message :

    [email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected]@[email protected] can’t be foud in fmodex64.dll

    Is there a solution to resolve it ?

  73. Palynzer (26 Oct 2016, 8:37)

    I got it now: not all thepatches are needed .
    This work for me: P 1.03> 1.06> 1.07> 1.08, all without cracking, then The Ariandel DLC and crack.
    (1.04 and 1.05 reg 1.08 dont install over 1.03, only show me errors), so I skiped and all run fine.
    Work like a charm now.
    The NPC is there, and the text its not fucked.
    Ariandel is beautiful and very tough scenario.
    Thanks SKID& RLD!

  74. walavic (26 Oct 2016, 9:45)

    i installed the updates in order twice …but the problem is that my old character doesn’t load after installing the dlc and i really don’t want to start all oer again to reach the dlc NPC!!! is there a way to make it load ??

  75. noname (26 Oct 2016, 10:11)

    Tnx for the release Skidrow! Is the problem with the text in game fixed now?

  95. Ronald Moore (27 Oct 2016, 10:32)

    2 things

    The good thing is that i played the DLC without problems the it WORKS!
    if you cannot read texts is because, you need to install the update 1.08 (latest, almost 2GB)
    Now, the bad thing the new NPC invade and Hodrick (both are mound-makers) can invade you, but other red phantoms are bugged and they don’t invade you.

  96. User (27 Oct 2016, 10:59)

    I can’t see the NPC I have done everything else correctly

  97. Palynzer (27 Oct 2016, 18:43)

    @dark, read jesus, READ.

  98. ebraheem (27 Oct 2016, 21:42)

  99. Janso (28 Oct 2016, 2:35)

    Guys, if the npc won’t show up, go to firelink shrine and talk to everyone, so go back to cathedral and the npc will be there.

  100. Elbrayan (28 Oct 2016, 3:19)

    do I need to install every update or only the last one?

  101. MikGreg22 (28 Oct 2016, 18:07)

    HELP ME PLEASE! The game’s installation is perfect, but when I start the game appears the error “Something has failed. Please restart the game” by steam…(Maybe because there isn’t Dying Light Demo on steam store)…i don’t know what to do, please help me!

  106. AMX (05 Nov 2016, 15:07)

  107. greywolfang (09 Nov 2016, 1:20)

    I download the DLC, but now my DS 3 just crashed.. Plis help. Also, I can’t find this DS3-Codex in this website

  108. Alejandro (10 Nov 2016, 23:23)

    have the fix for the red npc phantom invade in offline mode in this patch

    go to DS3 file folder in C: , find the steam_emu.ini file

    locate this line

    ### Set Steam connection to offline mode

    change to

    ### Set Steam connection to online mode

    in game put yes in licence , wait for the server check. server check fail, click cancel and the game now run in offline mode but the npc phantom return in offline mode


    tengo la solucion para el error por el cual los npc rojos no invaden en modo fuera de linea en este parche

    ve a la carpeta de ds3 en el dico C: buscar el archivo steam_emu.ini

    buscar estas lineas

    ### Set Steam connection to offline mode

    cambiar por estas

    ### Set Steam connection to online mode

    una ves dentro del juego aceptar el contrato de licencia, el servidor comenzara la verificacion pero fallara, poner cancelar y ahora el juego arranca en modo offline pero los npc rojos te van a invadir como antes

    a disfrutar

  109. Vlox (11 Nov 2016, 17:27)

    Works great!
    For those who can’t make it work:
    -Install patches and DLC
    -Copy/Paste the network fix
    -Copy/Paste Online fix

    Play and have online fun!
    When the DLC NPC doesn’t appear, talk to all the NPCs in the shrine.

    Thanx again Skid!!!

  110. Ronald Moore (19 Nov 2016, 0:02)

    Hi, i’m looking for the latest patch (v1.08 reg 1.22)

  111. Daniel (23 Nov 2016, 10:06)

    did we need download all the DLCC files ? I don’t know how to install . not understanding

  112. DLC ARENA (28 Nov 2016, 11:58)

    if you wanna play the arena online juste write RVT in PASSWORD so that we can play online ^^

  113. Maahinen (28 Nov 2016, 17:15)

    Remember guys always have backup save! What i always do is, before I install new patches or DLCs I go to C:\Users\– USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\DarkSoulsIII (You have to have ticked the option to Show hidden items/files) and copy the save files from there to else where. Then I install patches and after that i copy the save files there again. Also make sure you have all the patches installed before installing this DLC like it says in the description.

  114. niceguy (13 Dec 2016, 3:26)

    worked perfectly!
    I installed all updates in order in offline mode.
    went to the catherdral- the NPC was there and boom “The painted world of Ariandel”.
    Thankz a lot team skidrow and codex!

  115. Gintucker (16 Dec 2016, 19:12)

    I can see players, message etc… but i can’t summon or matchmaking… is there a solution for this ? ( I already have RVT on Password) Please Tell me !! A wanna play online D:
