Dark Souls 3 (PC)

December 12th, 2022: Dark Souls 3 has been updated! Please apply our new mod!


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 recommend 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 and backups up your save files.

  • Download our mod here and extract the files directly to the \Game directory. (From the Steam library tab, right click DS3 > Manage > Browse local files)
  • 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 normal characters with CrowdControl and prevents you from using modded characters on normal (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.
Normal save files live at %AppData%\DarkSoulsIII while our Crowd Control files are at %AppData%\DarkSoulsIIICrowdControl

Our mod is based on the idea of ModEngine, but has been written from the ground up to work for any version and any game.

Pack Validation failed: If the above mod is missing, Crowd Control will fail to start. Make sure the mod is in the Game folder or try re-running the One Click Setup.

Unable to create save: Back up and remove the save folders mentioned above, removing our dinput file. Launch the game normal to create a save. Close the game and rerun add the mod (or run the one click) and relaunch DS3.
