This is a quick patch to fix compatibility with the latest version of Dark Souls released 2 days ago.

Changes:

Made FPS unlocking compatible with the updated version of Dark Souls released 2 days ago (thanks boowoo90 for providing the updated addresses)
Added a configurable pause key (built for taking nice action screenshots. Don’t try to use online. May break stuff horribly)
Changed frame rate calculation to perhaps prevent rare 59 FPS issue when playing for a long time
Points 2 and 3 are things I implemented months ago, but which were not yet released.

Note: some graphical features (I noticed at least SSAO) are still affected/broken by the patch. I’ll release a followup later, but I didn’t want to delay the major fix for people who want to play now.

======
It will only work with the latest version. it shouldn’t be too hard to find a way for the mod to figure out which game version it is and work with both, but I haven’t done that so far.
I can add that some bugs are possible with other functions of DSFix, because for now it is "quick fix", anything but FPSunlock was not tested, new stable version is coming

DSMFix v1.0.2.0 (unofficial) is here:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/211420/discussions/0/864979455329386779/
for updated DS files only

DSCFix, old v1.2 works fine, it is here as always:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/211420/discussions/0/828935269278734403/

DSVFix (anti stat hack fix) - you dont need this anymore.

Notes about update:
17/09/13 Steam Dark Souls UPDATE is primarily ANTI HACK update.
Developers eliminated holes in code, to which hacks could cling to. As I understand, all game code that was related to applying effects on player was completely removed. Only usual effects are there to deal with. So no more stat stealing, teleports to random locations, kicking you into menu, maybe killing your NPCs (and yes - its wishful thinking, I cant know for sure that there are no holes left, time will tell ^_^)
And for those whose stats was already stolen - you can now levelup your stats back at the bonfire with no souls cost.
Only things that cheaters can do to you now, are cursing and egheading. And yes, intinite health. I guess we all used to live with that. ^_^
But, there is one more important thing - earlier method from "reddit", about replacing game files to their old pre-patched versions, returns all holes, and if you and cheater will have old files, he can humilate you as always. So i strongly advise you to replace new files back, or to check game integrity through steam if you made no backups
If you have problems with launch even after you replaced files back, i recommend to go for:
full unninstall > delete DSfolder > reinstall > copy new DS.Fixes

I make this "all in one" topic for better orientation in questions about update, versions of fixes etc. All thanks are go to autors of fixes:
to Durante\Petert for DSFix
to M0tah for DSCFix and for fixing DSMFix also.
to gl1tch for DSVFix, which was our main antihacker until update

this is fantastic! i love you! =)

Awesome! but yes, DSMfix is essential for me so I will be using the "reddit" method for the time being.

Good to know that DSfix got updated. There seems to be no available source code for DSMfix however, so all we can do is pester the author to make the situation better in some way.

You dont need to reinstall/redownload the entire game even if you didnt make a backup by the way, just right click on Dark Souls in your steam library, select properties and verify integrity of game cache. It will just redownload the four files affected by the reddit rollback.

Cheers for the mousefix btw, now I can enjoy the game as it´s meant to again!

If someone did not knew what to do before reading about reinstall, i will always recommend to him to follow: full unninstall > delete DSfolder > reinstall > copy DS.Fixes
Just because there was far too many errors about old DSFix files was not deleted even when it was just DSFix updating its version without any compatibility problems with game versions. And now we have all of this - crossed incompatibilities both from game versions and DSFix versions ^_^
voiddp Sep 20, 2013 @ 5:17am 
But yes i see your point, so i rephrased that part

If someone still crash when FPS is unlocked after last update and using dsfix 2.1, go to your DS folder, delete the DATA.exe, DATA.exe.cat, DATA.exe.cfg and DARKSOULS.exe.
Then in steam verify the game integrity and this will download these 4 files and that's all this should do it, now the game will not crash.
