    No I don't have any freaking idea of how the hell do you do that. So, maybe someone knows? In what language is Dark Souls programmed? C# or C++? How do you make mods? Not going in too much detail, just stating what do you need to know and where you should start working.

    I've been learning C# and I think that maybe looking into mods may be a good way of learning more of about programing in general.

    Unless you're going for minor alterations, it's going to be pretty hard work. I daresay Dark Souls was programmed in C++, though, given that it's the most resource-efficient programming language. What did you have in mind?

    I'm not sure, I remember I read somewhere that the engine used in Dark Souls was programmed in C#.

    I mainly wanted to make a mod that adds offline summon signs of different NPCs.

    One thing to keep in mind, is that Dark Souls was not built with modability in mind. It's not like there is a handy set of tools/framework/API to leverage to start changing the game.

    I really doubt you will be able to make engine changing mods, since the game on PC is just a recompiled version of the xbox version. It's really like an "app" on the apple products, where you can't (or have a really bad) access background files.
