    Major Dark Souls Glitch - DEMONHEAD

    Post by KOS on Sun Mar 04, 2012 11:44 pm

    Last night I was at a friend’s and I had my 360 with me along with Dark Souls. It’s around 9 and we’re waiting for another person, so I put the game on to pass some time. The character that I was planning on using was my first character, my main character. With my wanderer, I had accumulated over 167 hours and I was at level 159. I mention all of this so you know that by this point in the game, I had seem all the enemies and NPCs at least once and know what they all look like, how they move, etc.

    I turn on the game, choose my character, and the console freezes at the loading screen. I repeat my actions, same thing occurs…

    Third time trying, I choose my second character, my thief (not even at the Taurus Demon yet, just started the file a few days ago), and it loads and works fine.

    I of course go what the *** and attempt to load my main again. In my file, I had just been killed by Super Smough on NG+ and was planning to go back in to get Ornstein’s soul. Obviously, I’m nowhere near the end of the playthrough. Instead of freezing like the prior attempts, the game goes straight to the credits. This is where I should’ve started recording, but I wasn’t thinking and didn’t think that anything would play out like it did. My bad.

    I call a good friend of mine who I often play online with and tell him what’s going on and we’re both freaking out. Once the credits end, the game loops back to the opening scene in the asylum where the camera pans down the hallway and you see your character sitting in the cell. I’m of course expecting to see my character sitting there. My bad once more.

    What was there was a floating white head with distorted features and glowing red eyes. No torso, nothing. No outline where the game would’ve been distorted where the limbs would’ve been or anything, nothing at all, just a floating head. I wish I or my friend had recorded it, but we were freaking out and didn’t think to start until right after. The rest of the video played out as it normally does, just with a demonic character model replacing my own. For the duration of the video, its eyes were staring at the camera, at me. Even when you look up to see the knight throw you the key through the hatch, its eyes remained on me at all times. Once it turned and I saw the profile, it got even worse. Its features were elongated to a graphic degree and it was pure white, kind of reminiscent of a wax mask. The nose was severely upturned and nothing about the face was normal. Once it ‘stood up’, its head just floated far above the height where any normal character would stand and still, it stared. Around it were little floating lights, almost orbs. It was at this time that my friend on the phone snapped me out of it and told me to hang up and take a picture with my phone. This is that picture -


    The game then froze as it stared to load the character for user-play. I restarted the game, sent the picture to my friend from the call, and my other friend grabbed his iPad and started recording everything. I loaded the game and my first character was gone, replaced by what I had seen moments ago.The level was now -881188, the playtime was exactly one minute, and the area was now set as the asylum. Its stats were also completely obscure, but you’ll see that in pictures and I’ll provide more if anyone asks. We have videos of attempting to load and play as the head, none successful.

    Each and every time I try to load the head, the game freezes, just as it had done with my main before it jumped to the credits and started all of this.

    I checked online like crazy and found nothing at all even remotely like this. It doesn’t help that we were watching Supernatural right before this happened either. I’ll provide more pictures at the bottom with stats and display (soon) and I’ll update once I get the rest from my friend along with the videos.







    I'll post stats and equip in the next post.

    I checked the display for this ‘character’ and it has a full stat-set, but nothing is equipped nor is there any discernible information except for the gender, which is male.

    They read as follows:

    No Name

    Sex - Male

    Class - ?MenuOther?

    Gift - ?MenuOther?

    Physique - ?MenuOther?

    Face - ?MenuOther?

    Hair - ?ProtectorName?

    Color - Hair Color

    Level - 188

    Vitality - 33

    Attunement - 03

    Endurance - 80

    Strength - 86

    Dexterity - 58

    Resistance - 07

    Intelligence - 18

    Faith - 61

    Humanity - 79


    And the proof:











    So it looks like I’m dealing with an incorporeal being with low intelligence, ridiculously high faith and humanity, scary high endurance, strength, and dexterity, no resistance, and not many spell slots to go along with that faith. Good thing I have a week off to figure all this out.

    For anyone wondering, I have a 360 slim, used, bought from ebay. It turns on and off by itself all the time and it generally acts like a possessed douchebag about 35% of the time.

    What my friend (the one who’s uploading the video as I type this) and I gathered is that it might not be the game freaking out and replacing my character with an unfinished, possibly play-test model from the development process. That would’ve been our conclusion from the start and it would’ve ended right there, but then why would there be stats and such attached…

    Obviously, you need to invade some worlds with a Fog Ring on, get up close and suddenly remove it.

    That was my exact first thought to, I can't even begin to imagine what the heck happened. Those eyes are quite creepy though...

    I would if I could only get the file to load. The possibility that this thing could be playable is the only thing that has me not feeling terribly bad about losing my main character. Oh well, at least there's still my thief to investigate his disappearance and carry on the legacy.

    It can't even be loaded, yikes. Is there any way to contact customer service or anything like that? This is probably something From should know about, it sounds like this is an incredibly rare thing but you never know who else might have had a file ruined like this.

    I really don't even know. All other files still work fine and new game creation runs as normal as it would under any other circumstances. You really think From would give this any attention?

    @KOS it could be possible your save was corrupted by not quitting the game correctly... I've heard of that happening just not like this.

    No, I've made sure to quit the game properly every single time. The console does turn off by itself while I'm playing sometimes, but it didn't during the timeframe where all of this occurred.

    Why'd you get 86 strength? The returns after 40 get really diminishing...



    Seriously: looks like a really corrupted save file to me. Maybe a problem with your HDD?

    Or: whatever is haunting your console is trying to reach out to you.

    Edit: also, lol @ liff!

    I thought I made it clear but I guess I didn't. Those stats aren't anything like what my stats were with my actual character.

    It's my fault, I should've known better than to write a sarcastic joke on a forum--sarcasm doesn't come through in writing!

    Honestly I don't think you can play that character Ever. The reason why it'll keep crashing you is those 'menu' selection text as its probably highlighting the wrong section of game script making it load errors over and over which would more then likely cause you to erode other characters.

    O & Smo killed you pretty good. Smacked your head right back to the Asulym.

    But seriously, I thought that I'd seen almost everything in Dark Souls. Guess I was wrong. That is some weird ****.

    Btw, I wonder how that character looks like with the dragon stones.
