1080p resolution fix by Durante

Latest version can be found HERE:
http://blog.metaclassofnil.com/?m=201309


HOW TO INSTALL:
-Download the zip file from the link
-place both of the new files into the Main Dark Souls Directory folder (where the games .exe is located)
-Edit the "DSfix.ini" (with notepad) file with the resolution you wish to use or downsample from.
-Save the file and launch the game

Be sure to turn off the IN GAME Anti-Aliasing and Motion Blur setting, otherwise, you could get a black screen.

Here are some examples:

And IGN posted a HD/1080p comparison video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ybn-mI_zGw0&hd=1



Here is his original thread with details on how to implement (it's pretty easy):

He must've just posted the download because I've been checking a lot. So releasing it every half hour or so is an overstatement.

It's an awesome fix by Durante for sure. But there's one FATAL flaw with it at the moment. For many users (and for me) there's a problem, when using the fix you can't read the messages on the ground, there's no text when you read them.

I REALLY hope this gets fixed asap since it's a night/day difference in image quality!

Looks really awesome, but somehow it hits my performance really bad on 1600x900

Yeah waiting until that issue is fixed to continue.

Getting much better performance using the fix. Was getting frame drops without it.

The game has been out for a little over an hour, and he's already put out 2-3 versions.

He's also working on fixing the file for a better AA solution if I'm reading it correctly.

It doesn't help that the game is locked at 30 FPS either. That would be an awesome fix as well, although I wouldn't expect that just yet.

Okay, see, this right here is why developers need to fix this crap THEMSELVES.

No support for higher resolutions, framerate caps, confined FOVs, are all unacceptable these days. It shouldn't be up to the gamers to fix these crappy ports. The developers are supposed to provide these very basic features themselves.

Now we all have to wait and see if this pirate modder guy can succeed in getting this bloody thing to work. And then we have to apply the tweak ourselves.

Great. Wonderful. Welcome to the world of PC gaming.

Does it also remove some game text? Like if you open your menu . The one with the pouch, the shield, the man and the book. No text appearing there either.

Yes, text is missing from those menu elements too. Probably it was somewhat hardcoded into the initial resolution.

Place d3d9.dll and DSfix.ini into the game's binary directory. (The place where DARKSOULS.exe is)
You can open DSfix.ini with a text editor to adjust the desired internal resolution.
There ya go.

Sneaky ninja's are about /runs.

Durante is aware of the text issue:
