Does anyone have any info about what this will do to the game and the best way to handle it? I found it in the chest at Firelink Shine where you're supposed to get back important dropped items. I opened the chest out of curiosity and it doesn't tell you what you're about to pick up (it just says "loot chest?" or something). The item was estus flask +7 which I NEVER DROPPED. (But I did have temporarily for about 5 min)

I used a game save editor to try and improve my survival. I gave myself a set of slightly better armor (Gold-Hemmed Black set) a better weapon (Ghost Blade) and a fire keeper soul (intending to upgrade flask later). After reading that cheating fire keeper souls messes up your game, I went back to the editor and replaced the soul with something generic. I hadn't read anything about cheating in a better flask causing problems with this editor, so I just went ahead and replaced my full +1 flask with a +7 flask. Then I discovered I could not pick up items. I changed the flask back to a +1 and everything worked fine again. (playing the game, I upgraded the +1 to a +2 the normal non-cheating way) ...But just now I picked up the +7 flask out of that magic recovery chest by accident. Now I have two in my inventory and they both filled at a bonfire. Google is not helping, using "2" or "two" (flasks) gives me results for "dark souls II" instead. Other searches bring up the concept of how many refills you have. I dropped a random item and was able to pick it up. Does that mean I'm fine? Is there a way to make sure I do NOT have the "can't pick up items/keys" glitch?

Any help would be appreciated.

XBox 360, patched Dark Souls, Dark Souls Save Editor by Jappi88 version 2.5 http://www.360haven.com/forums/threads/8065-Final-Dark-Souls-Save-editor-V-2-5-0-0

  • There is a newer version of the save editor. Commented Mar 26, 2014 at 21:53
  • @Mondrianaire Yes, but I need the version that does not require an additional program to use. Downloading one is enough for me. Version 2.5 does not require a 3rd party program such as Modio, 360revolution, or Horizon. Version 3.0 is a completely different program (not an update of 2.5) and the creator did not include that type of feature in the new version.

Of course there is no way to know 100% that your save game is not corrupted after modifying a savegame, but I have had multiple Estus after modding my save multiple times and never have had a problem with it.

It is to note that the game considers different Estus to be different items from one another. When you upgrade your estus, your +1 estus gets deleted and it loads a +2 estus in its place. This explains how it is possible to have two at the same time.

  • So far I have also picked up one key. It's good to know that at least someone has had multiple flasks & everything still worked. I found that it wouldn't let me update my original +2 flask anymore, but I am able to drink from the +7 flask. Unfortunately it won't matter anymore. The XBox is now refusing to read the USB drive, claiming it's unformatted. (But it hadn't left the box since I last played the game.) XBox support says "insert drive after XBox is on" fixes it. I use USB drives often & I've only had this problem with Dark Souls. Their "fix" doesn't work this time though. Oh well.
