  13. ajay (28 Apr 2016, 13:17)

  14. Juanashima (28 Apr 2016, 13:30)

    If you can’t play online, just redownload RVT network fix thing and put it again

  15. Ryk (28 Apr 2016, 13:35)

    Password for online RVT on dark souls 3 options

  16. Timotizmus (28 Apr 2016, 13:42)

  20. Anchy (28 Apr 2016, 14:08)

    will this patch delete my progress

  21. aratoon (28 Apr 2016, 14:20)

    arf just installed the update and i lost my saves and i cant go online

  22. Kino (28 Apr 2016, 14:36)

    If your save is gone, copy the Network fix and Online fix again. This was reported in v1.03 and that was the solution

  23. Asane (28 Apr 2016, 14:53)

    lol 1.06 is already out. Should have just released that one instead of this.

  24. Hadeswrath (28 Apr 2016, 15:00)

    Before posting -“MY SAVE IS GONE BLA BLA BLA”, you can actually read comments and find solution, at least give some effort.

    – Just copy again Online fix and you are good to go.

  25. OMG (28 Apr 2016, 15:04)

    1.04 patch and crack in this file,and REVOLT patch.

    We can play online coop and invading on 1.04!

    thank you!!

  26. Hadeswrath (28 Apr 2016, 15:07)

    People would think you guys actually know, when you doing changes to something on your PC – YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BACKUP, in case something goes wrong and their is no solution to newly occurred problem.

    Backup your save file, but in this case everything works fine after updating and applying Online fix again.

  27. Anchy (28 Apr 2016, 15:30)

    I updated the game, and everything works perfectly 🙂 Didn’t even have to copy save file or the network fix again, thx skidrow 😀

  28. Necro (28 Apr 2016, 15:31)

    I lost my save files wth

  29. taarn (28 Apr 2016, 15:50)

    My update seemed to lockup so I closed it, and then it found errors when I tried to re-patch it. So I tried loading the game and my char was falling to its death on a black screen, so I uninstalled and reinstalled both the original and the 1.03 patch, and again the update is stalling here

    “Waiting for Input…

    For about half an hour. Other people seem to have updated so I don’t know what my problem is.

  30. Marko (28 Apr 2016, 16:01)

    There is no content of the main game. Page is not found

  31. Magnet (28 Apr 2016, 16:16)

    For some reason the game does not find my steam controller, other games have no problem.

  32. Nobody (28 Apr 2016, 16:57)

    What about Network Fix? How can i play with my friend? I installed this patch, should i install something more to play with my friend? Can someone know the answer?

  33. ROLO (28 Apr 2016, 17:01)

    I just want to check something, when you are going to install the update, does it say “at least 11.5GB of free space to install?!?!!?

  34. lemon (28 Apr 2016, 17:09)

    guys i copyed the fix but it still doesnt work i can play the game but i cant play the game !
    what should i do???

  35. LiandroX (28 Apr 2016, 17:52)

    Hi; I downloaded this one but for some reason the game update worked fine. but when i copy paste the EXE of dark souls gives me the error to log in and starts offline automaticly. I had to put the other 1.03 patch for the game to work. but even so I can’t summon or be summoned :l

  36. Mate (28 Apr 2016, 17:59)

    Hello. I have problem with REVOLT Internet FIX. When i try to launch the game, i see short message, but when i click “OK”, game don’t want to start. I don’t have any error or something. Help!

  37. dm00z (28 Apr 2016, 18:06)

    Anyway to skip the MD5 check? Not enough space but the installer installed Data1 to Data4 anyway. Now I can’t reinstall because of md5 mismatch. Just asking so I can avoid redownloading the whole game.

  38. Mate #2 (28 Apr 2016, 18:06)

    For everyone with Win 8. If u have problem like me, that game don’t want to start. Just Change name o file to DyingLightDemo.exe instead to DarkSoulsIII.exe. It’s working!

  39. gonny (28 Apr 2016, 18:16)

    Dark.Soul.III-CODEX link doesn’t work! i don’t know how to install the whole game! thx

  40. Khezu (28 Apr 2016, 18:30)

    I find the problem but i dont know what to do
    my save is gone, the problem is the steam_api64.dll
    if you copy steam_api64.dll from crack update 1.04 your save game will appear
    but if you copy steam _api64.ll from online fix your save game has gone again
    I dont know what to do but im very sure my save file gone because steam_api64.dll from online fix
    if you guys find the way out to fix this (except copying network and online fix) please reply my comment
    sorry for bad english

  41. vinidosapin (28 Apr 2016, 18:33)

    how to use old saves?

  42. TheHappyChocobo (28 Apr 2016, 19:54)

    All of you saying to play online on RVT, there is no online, I can’t connect with any player, I played with a legit player once, or at least that’s what he called himself, but I can’t find anyone else, not even a crack player, so either your RVT pass is a lie, or I am just that unlucky. lol.

  43. Vin-ceu (28 Apr 2016, 20:10)

    Well even after reapplying Online Fix it still can’t read my save…
    the save folder has changed from 0110000100000666 to 011000010573fca7 and if i move my old save to the new folder it cannot be opened.

  44. PAULO (28 Apr 2016, 21:01)

    Please help here :I installed it, used the network and online fix again, and it IS online, i can see a lot of summon signs. But I cant summon or be summoned, every time i try i get the error UNABLE TO SUMMON PHANTOM. Anyone here with the same problem?

  45. tat 1 anoying "first" guy (28 Apr 2016, 21:05)

    lul first

  46. Vin-ceu (28 Apr 2016, 21:18)

    This worked for me : “To get around that when you’re transferring you have to make a new character, start it up, quit to main menu, then go to LOAD CHARACTER but dont select anything. Alt tab and transfer the character save and then load the “new” character. It will load your old character and you can exit and everything will work fine! :D”

  47. Araok (28 Apr 2016, 21:57)

    The players can’t conjure me, and i can’t conjure

  48. josef256 (28 Apr 2016, 21:58)

    to play online you need to put dark souls III folder under “program file”

  49. Isak92 (28 Apr 2016, 21:59)

    how to play online?

  50. jusie (28 Apr 2016, 23:24)

    My whole game is eraser when pacht only don’t found a output say then stop to come back a pacht the game , but my surprise was there’s is not game anymore 🙁

  51. Anth (29 Apr 2016, 0:33)

    Having same issue as taarn 🙁 its locked at Data5.bdt.cdx_newfile as the last line of information. 🙁 Anyone have a fix for this? Thanks.

  52. SpikeThor (29 Apr 2016, 0:55)

    you can’t join “real” dark souls 3 players, you can only join cracked games, some are using “RVT” as a password to be able to join one another without having to deal with unusable signs.

    with the save problems,
    1. create a new character, then quit the “game”( go to the menu).
    2. go to load game, then alt-tab out, swap your save file with the new one while the game is running.
    3. go back to the game, and select the new character you made.
    it will work and you will be back with our old character.
    EXTRA!!! if you had more than one, make more than one new character before the swap and load that one,

  53. willian (29 Apr 2016, 1:54)

    Where i can download the RVT online fix

    Please help me with the online thing

    I already have instaled the version 1.03 and now i will do this version

    I already have the net fix file and the online crack…

    And what is the password ?

  54. ccbcar (29 Apr 2016, 2:25)

    same problem as tarn and Anth, update locked in installation and like ROLO it says “at least 11.5 GB of free space to install”…if anyone know something please help

  55. MetatronCubensis (29 Apr 2016, 5:53)

    lol froze during update, deleted my entire game folder…once again fail fucking crack

  56. MetatronCubensis (29 Apr 2016, 5:53)

    good thing i backed up my save file before I did it

  57. koles (29 Apr 2016, 7:54)

    Installing data5 just takes time (took me around 25 minutes) and yes it shows 11GB cuz its exchanging old file with new one. At the moment of instalation there are 2 data5 files (one with newfile) and when its done 1 is deleted and name back to normal. Yes it requires more space on HDD for instalation but afterwards its almost the same as it was.

  58. lazybear (29 Apr 2016, 8:49)

    im getting error at startup:
    on your account.the us of invalid data during gameplay is a violation of the online service….
    blah blah blah……

  59. miky mike (29 Apr 2016, 10:00)

    thanks this fucked up my whole game and save !!

  60. Kittsle (29 Apr 2016, 10:13)

    so, is online working with the new update and all?

  61. Christopher (29 Apr 2016, 10:46)

    not I install , says missing file , the more they are it in the game folder

  62. Luis (29 Apr 2016, 11:27)

    Will it affect saved games ?

  63. Kata (29 Apr 2016, 11:35)

    Problem with the saves, help me

  64. Suguru (29 Apr 2016, 12:55)

    For people having issues with their saves, go to your save folder, backup your file, create a new one by starting a new game, replace it with your backup. You need to start as many new games as how many profiles you had before copying your backup.

    For online mode, you need to reinstall the RVT mp crack, however you’ll get a warning saying that your save data is invalid or something like that, which will eventually result in a soft ban (not sure how that affects us though). Waiting for a new RVT mp crack seems safer.

  65. Juanashima (29 Apr 2016, 13:13)

    Guys, can you invade with the (cracked) red eye orb ?

  66. Firman (29 Apr 2016, 13:34)

    Sorry sir
    i have a problem after instalation,when i click the launcher the game won’t start.
    the error messege is darksoul3.exe hast stopped working.
    any solution for this?

  67. OMG (29 Apr 2016, 13:34)

    i think we match with not only Crack version but also Regular version.
    but we can play with ONLY crack version.
    so summoning is failed.

    i’m able to play with my friend this version.

  68. Suguru (29 Apr 2016, 13:40)

    @Juanashima in 1.03 I could invade even without the RVT password, in 1.04 it succeeded with the password only but sometimes it didn’t work.

  69. John (29 Apr 2016, 13:54)

    First thanks,
    second how can I play online ?

  70. Nigasdaw (29 Apr 2016, 14:01)

    Says dark souls is vs 1.05 and i have 1.04 from this and so it wont connect to network, help?

  71. okick (29 Apr 2016, 17:06)

    Hi, i have game installed in program files (x86) and i can’t install update there, it writes “data1.bdt, data2.bdt,…data5.bdt not found”, but they are there.

    Does someone have some solution how to install update? Thank you in advance.

  72. Segin (29 Apr 2016, 17:17)

    too bad gotta start a new game….

  73. red (29 Apr 2016, 18:27)

    For Online on the setting network use passwrod match, use this word RVT as password
    so we can play online together 😀

  74. amz (29 Apr 2016, 19:46)

    omg my saves…….

  75. PAULO (30 Apr 2016, 1:27)

    Really, am I the only one who can see the signs but cant summon or be summoned?

  76. solks (30 Apr 2016, 2:23)

    The one who has saving problem after applying 1.04 patch probably played their character before applying network and online fixes

  77. Daud (30 Apr 2016, 3:31)

    Idk but since this update i have never seen a summoning sign and i cant invade what is it?

  78. X (30 Apr 2016, 4:29)

    your savegames are not gone, they should still be stored in appdata/roaming/darksouls III
    if the game doesnt recognize the save folder u will have to make a new save (to create a new folder) and then paste your save file in there.

    Also make sure to match the number of the character slots when making the new save, i had an issue with it before.

  79. Ezequias (30 Apr 2016, 6:48)

    Cordial Greetings Skidrow Team
    How we can invade or be invoked? it cant work, please do something about.

  80. lovender (30 Apr 2016, 8:56)

  98. Bangladesh (02 May 2016, 9:43)

    When updating,select the folder Dark souls 3 not “Game”.
    Hope this works!!

  99. Lukka (02 May 2016, 16:40)

    If you get a problem that the updater cant find the data files in the ‘game’ folder, copy those files data1, 2,3, 5 etc from the MAIN GAME folder to the ‘game’ folder. The patch should read those files now.

  100. Pablo Campos U (02 May 2016, 21:31)

    @Garris, go into settings – Network and then select “Online” on Launch setting.

    Hey guys I heard that applying the online fix and network fix allows you to use your old saves but when I copied the contents of the online fix I get a message saying you can only see the real source of this steamwork fix in the title of this message, once pressing ok I get an error saying something has failed please restart the game. Does anyone know the solution to this?
