  8. lorenzolamas (03 May 2016, 7:22)

    isnt working for me too…

  9. aaa (03 May 2016, 7:40)

    same over here

  10. nozes (03 May 2016, 7:44)

    I installed the game again … and the new update ..but there’s something wrong, it is still version 1.04 and not 1:05

  11. zangy (03 May 2016, 8:03)

    me too don’t work coz I already updated to 1.04 … but why this update only for 1.03 ?

  12. Eduardo BZ (03 May 2016, 8:25)

    Though it’s showing ”App Version 1.04 / Regulation 1.05”

  13. Xainn (03 May 2016, 9:36)

    You can’t go from 1.4 to 1.5? Is anything missing from 1.3.1 -> 1.5 if we can’t go from go in full order?

  14. Koi (03 May 2016, 12:54)


  15. divinity (03 May 2016, 13:30)

    do everything right but it still 1.04 not appear 1.05

  16. estocbestoc (03 May 2016, 13:35)

    installed it on top of 1.03.1 and it shows 1.04 ingame, not 1.05

  17. Bidogo (03 May 2016, 13:45)

    i can’t connect, anyone getting the same problem? It’s weird, but i’m still getting regulation 1.4, not 1.5!

  18. Error (03 May 2016, 15:32)

    Im getting error saying the data doesnt match just like @nozes.
    I need help.

  19. tuxido1 (03 May 2016, 15:51)

    You cant just run 1.03.1 again because 1.4 impacts data files that does not so you will ALWAYS get the mismatch UNLESS you do a CLEAN INSTALL of Dark Souls III-CODEX.
    1) Clean Install – Dark Souls III – CODEX (copy crack files)
    2) Apply Dark Souls III 1.03.1 – CODEX Update (copy crack files)
    3) Apply Dark Souls III 1.05 – CODEX Update/Patch (copy crack files)
    4) Apply Network Fix OR Online Fix.
    If you were playing with the Revolt Online Fix and want to keep your save files you need to apply the Online Fix after you have upgraded to v1.05

  20. Ganny (03 May 2016, 16:35)

    So …..
    can anyone please tell what’s is the problem there.
    and if i do make another clean install of the game >> network fix >> update 1.03 >> update 1.05
    what regulation and version it would show and i would miss anything in the process?

  21. ShaqShuqa (03 May 2016, 17:15)

    ty tuxido1

  22. Prime (03 May 2016, 18:04)

    uhh the update 1.04 is 152.82mb and the ´´1.05´´ is 1.52.88 and you can only installer the 1.05 update from 1.3.1, i think is the same thing….

  23. Stackvosh (03 May 2016, 20:29)

    If u install the 1.04 update is still working. is the same update. U DON’T NEED THIS IF U ALREADY INSTALL THE 1.04 UPDATE.

  24. sambuca (03 May 2016, 20:47)

    FIRST !

  25. sambuca (03 May 2016, 20:48)

    i was lying (is it possible to play online with reload crack ? )

  26. Asane (03 May 2016, 21:38)

    Is this update 1.06?…I don’t see update called 1.05 in the steam forums.

  27. Garris (03 May 2016, 21:47)

    @tuxido1 So, I did every step you said, Applied 1.03.1 then 1.05 then applied the online fix and it gives me RTVfix.nfo error. How do I fix it?

  28. Nandha (04 May 2016, 0:31)

    some people above me who say this same thing maybe didnt know what is crc

  29. nozes (04 May 2016, 1:02)

    this is not Version 1.05 ..do not install the game all over again guys….still 1.04 Trust me!!

  30. Ed (04 May 2016, 3:01)

    App : 1.04
    Reg : 1.05

  31. Jacob (04 May 2016, 12:01)

    Yea, This is the same update! Please fix! 🙂 thanks!

  32. sagigush (04 May 2016, 12:17)

    this update download is the worst.. please fix

  33. Error (04 May 2016, 15:47)

    Bloody hell so I applied the pattch rightly by installing the game AGAIN, and then when I went to play the game ,It STUTTERED LIKE HELL And is even slower.
    But anyways Im not angery with the skidrow team as Im getting dis for free so I’ll be waiting for a complete repack so the performance will be better.

  34. tuxido1 (04 May 2016, 16:38)

    @Garris download and install the 1. netfix and 2. online fix updates

  35. Dickgobbler (04 May 2016, 19:31)

    So…do we just wait now or what ? Is there gonna be any response from anyone ?

    Because this is still version 1.04 reg 1.05 but with the patchnotes of reg 1.06.

  36. Garris (04 May 2016, 20:53)

    Still not working, Says 1.04 and I’ve reinstalled it multiple times trying different ways. Is it possible to play online with the 1.04 update? please respond! Been trying to figure it out for awhile

  37. diegoga2002 (04 May 2016, 23:03)

    The last update on the site was Update: 1.04, Reg: 1.05
    The latest update that has been released is Update: 1.04, Reg: 1.06
    Update 1.05 is only for consoles.

  38. Aldric (04 May 2016, 23:26)

    For those facing trouble with online play..
    Restart windows and don’t open anything, only dark souls.
    Try Pontiff Sulivahn bonfire, out of the church there is a small area before the giants where people usually meet for pvp dueling.
    Sometimes you will see “unable to invade” and “unable to summon dark spirit”, but it is normal, just try another dark spirit or wait to invade, try other areas too.

  39. Save File (05 May 2016, 0:18)

    Will the save files for the cracked version conflict with the legit Steam version?

  40. Jais (05 May 2016, 5:40)

    This update has got Fail written all over it.

  41. FeSeiki (05 May 2016, 7:48)

    Guys, I´ve installed everything like it should
    ( codex–> network fix –>update 1.03–> update 1.05–>RVT)
    BUT, everytime i install this RVT and start the game a msg pops up saying something like “You can see the only real source of this steamfix in the title”. Can anyone help me ? If i ignore the RVT step, i can not play online ..

  42. Lukka (05 May 2016, 18:39)

    @FeSeiki, are you running it through steam?

  43. Garris (05 May 2016, 20:31)

    Can anyone tell me if the online is actually working on 1.4?

  44. Garris (05 May 2016, 20:31)

    If so, Why won’t mine? Always says I’m offline

  45. 2 (06 May 2016, 0:38)

    I followed the insturctions of installation and had the same problem that FeSeiki says.
    I copied again the network fix (steam.api) and the game works well (I applied all the CODEX cracks after any install).
    If you want to change the language you have to modify the revolt.ini after applying the onlie fix.
    Thanks to skidrow, codex and all that make this possible.

    For people with bad framrates in online, looks little “silly” but if tried the tab+ctrl for got to windows and when return to game it runs well, after a little happens the same and it works well for some hours, maybe was chance but I think the game have a moment of overload and when the”active” window change the resources of the game returns to the normals.

  46. Suguru (06 May 2016, 2:40)

    @Garris it doesn’t work on 1.04. I also suspect this version to be 1.04 and not 1.05. If 1.05 was out, you couldn’t play online with 1.04.

    Basically, don’t install if you already have 1.04.

  47. zoom (06 May 2016, 9:08)

    after apply the update 1.5
    copy the steam_api64.dll only from RVTfix to dark soul III main folder

  48. FeSeiki (06 May 2016, 17:12)

    @2 what do you mean by “applied the crack” ? Just copying and pasting CODEX files ? Or using the setup on v 1.05 ?

    @Lukka I tried through steam and through the normal exe file. Both did the same thing and the msg keeps appearing.

  49. Ehren Pizzarello (07 May 2016, 15:10)

    Anyone else dying as soon as they load in, black screen with “You died”?

    If so anyone know how to fix?

  50. PicklePee (07 May 2016, 18:52)

    Don’t forget to put


    as password to play with other pirates!

  51. DAVDEMON (07 May 2016, 21:55)

    reinstall the game, do not copy the CODEX folder, install the update, and it works

  52. FeSeiki (08 May 2016, 0:47)

    One thing that confuses me is that both the CODEX folder in update v1.05 as well as the RVTFiX folder have a file called “steam_api64.dll” wich one do I have to copy to my main game folder? I tried everything already and everytime i have the RVTFiX steam_api, I keep recieving the msg from rvtfix saying that i downloaded from the wrong place and bla bla bla. But if i don’t copy it to my main game folder, i can not play online .. Please help me, guys.

  53. fredehaze (08 May 2016, 13:28)

    doens’t work

  54. FeSeiki (08 May 2016, 19:27)

    Still can get it to work online

  55. yee way (09 May 2016, 7:05)

    Hi guys, I’m currently at update 1.04. Is it possible to play online? If I don’t put a password I can see signs but I can’t summon them. If I do put a password I can’t see any signs. Can someone assist please?

  56. dasd (09 May 2016, 8:42)

    just right click on exe and turn off “run as administrator” just start steam turn this off and open.
    It worked for me.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  57. Suguru (09 May 2016, 18:03)

    @FeSeiki you need to copy ALL files for the revolt mp crack to work, even the link to their website.

  58. Shark (10 May 2016, 9:25)

    it works thx

  59. Helpme (10 May 2016, 23:45)

    Did this. Neither network or RTV are working for me. network fix crashes during the intro video (or the main menu if I linger and don’t click new game). RTV won’t launch. Gives the same error as FeSeiki

  60. Thomas (11 May 2016, 4:11)

    Cant summon any other player !
    1.04 ver as well.
    need helps!

  61. Sonicfanx1 (12 May 2016, 16:03)

    Man, I really dislike this.

    I’ve finally gotten into Dark Souls. I’d love to support the devs and I would, but I’d settle for the singleplayer game.

    But this netfix man…

    As a pirate, I’m cool with downloading things for my own use, but if it mucks with other people’s programs then I feel very uneasy.

    I’ll still download DS3 and the patch though. I’ll pay when I can.

  62. faiz (13 May 2016, 5:38)

    my save file is from the different version when i updated to 1.03.1, how can i fix this? 🙁

  63. lemon (13 May 2016, 14:21)

    me 2

  64. PAULO (13 May 2016, 22:21)

    ATTENTION PLEASE!! Dont accept any itens from strangers or you can be banned. There’s an asshole that is doing this.

  65. yee way (14 May 2016, 7:01)

    1) INSTALL 1.03
    2) UPDATE TO 1.05

    I can play online but it’s still 1.04. What’s everyone’s version at? i used to be able to see quite a few summon signs but I don’t see any nowadays.

  66. Suguru (14 May 2016, 9:02)

    @yee way We are at 1.04 revision 1.05. The 1.05 patch doesn’t exist, this is actually 1.04.

  67. Mr. President (15 May 2016, 6:59)

    I can´t pass the first big opponent???

  68. Phelix (16 May 2016, 17:39)

    indows 8.1 Online Play Instructions

    1) Clean Install – Dark Souls III – CODEX (copy crack files)

    2) Apply Dark Souls III 1.03.1 – CODEX Update (copy crack files)

    3) Apply Dark Souls III 1.05 – CODEX Update/Patch (copy crack files)

    4) Apply Online Fix.

    5) Rename DarkSoulsIII.exe to DyingLightDemo.exe

    6) Make sure Steam is running ( don’t have to add game as non-steam game)

    7) Rename Dark Souls III Main folder ( e.g. C://Games/Dark Souls III) to ANYTHING ELSE, for example to Dark Souls III2

    8) Double Click DyingLightDemo.exe, run as high performance GPU if appropriate

    9) Click OK if Reloaded box pops-up

    10) When you are done playing and exit and want to relaunch, you HAVE to rename folder again (etc from Dark Souls III2 to Dark Souls III3) ( I know its a drag..)

    11) If renaming does not work, try MOVING main Dark Souls III folder to another location, e.g. Desktop


  69. Mr. President (16 May 2016, 21:40)

    I have passed the first big opponent! Ludex Gundyr is history!

  70. losemi (17 May 2016, 3:20)

    For everyone wondering why its still on 1.4 after you update, its because of the crack.
    Update is fine but the crack is still for version 1.4, if you check the file version on it you’ll see, that’s why even after update if you apply crack it reverts back to 1.4
    So nothing to do really except wait for proper crack…

  71. Max (17 May 2016, 4:36)

    vers 1.04 after intall
    vers regulation 1.05 🙁

  72. Ali (19 May 2016, 13:17)

  78. Sir_Iorag (26 May 2016, 6:50)

    @Evil_sr.Gon X lo visto, esta version es solo para los q vengan de la 1.0.3. El crack online no sirve para win 8 ni para win 10 a no ser q renombres el .exe del juego a DyingLightDemo.exe y la carpeta principal en q edtá instalada el juego, tal y fomo dice mas arriba el user @Phelix. Así me funciona el online aunque falla y sale por bajo framerate :/

    well it work good in my first playthrough but when i start NG+ there is noone to invade and then i start ng again and still there is a very hard to find someone to invade or to summon… is this because there is no player any more or what…. what lvl is best to play pvp or pve ?

    instead of this download and install update 1.05 regulation 1.08, then you can easily update to later like 1.06 and on,
    READ CAREFULLY- it should be ver1.05 regulation 1.08
