Dark Souls 3 (PC)

As of August 25th, 2022, Dark Souls 3 has been temporarily disabled! This is directly caused by this update: DARK SOULS™ III - Online features for the PC version of Dark Souls III have been reactivated. - Steam News


You can follow the general setup guide at https://crowdcontrol.live/setup for extra help with the Twitch Extension, the Crowd Control Desktop Client and other options.

We suggest using the One Click Setup to install the mod required for this game,. This can be found in the Crowd Control Desktop app, after selecting your game!

If you have any questions or need help with this setup, please head over to our discord, forum or email us for additional support!

Manual Setup

We recomend using the One Click Setup if you are new to modding with this game. If you want to apply the mod yourself, feel free to follow these steps.

To avoid bans, we are requiring the use of a mod that prevents online play. If you already have “ModEngine” installed, you should be good to go.

  • Download ModEngine here, and extract the files directly to the \Game directory. (From the Steam library tab, right click DS3 > Manage > Browse local files)
  • It will take a few mins for the game to fully boot. You may notice an error message while the game “Checks network connection status…” which is normal.
  • Start up Dark Souls 3, and wait for the game to load.
  • From the CrowdControl app select “PC - Dark Souls III” and hit “Start”. (Make sure the game is running first!)
Gameplay Support

The mod we apply prevents you from using your vanilla characters with CrowdControl and prevents you from using modded characters on vanilla (with online play). This helps prevent bans.
To revert the mod and get your vanilla characters back, just remove dinput8.dll from the \Game directory.

If the above mod is missing, Crowd Control will fail with this message:

Flip screen effect will not show in OBS/on your stream by default!
The effect will work for you, but your viewers won’t see the flip happen. For a better viewer experience, follow this guide for OBS Studio, StreamLabs-OBS, OBS-Live. Support for xSplit and other software is not supported at this time. Crowd Control - Screen Flip Guide


Thanks to the awesome DS3 community for providing the mod mentioned above.
