    Having trouble with online. Please help.

    Post by Joel_Boof on Tue May 01, 2012 2:24 am

    The past three days I have been unable to play online. My playstation is connected to the network and i do not get any errors loading Dark souls. But I can't find any summon signs, messages, or be invaded. I am sl120 and i stood in the kiln as a human for over an hour without being invaded or being summoned or seeing summon signs. I am positive it is not in offline mode because when i sign out of psn it directs me back to the main menu. I tried 3 other characters and they all do the same thing. I started a new build and it also can not find any messages or summon signs. I have no idea what it could be and any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks

    Try uninstalling the game and reinstalling it maybe? Obviously not your save data, but the game data. I know sometimes Dark Souls can have issues if your connection is interrupted while your playing. It'll perform like your playing online but you just wont be. I've never heard of it lasting for so long though. Normally when it happens to me I just quit the game and then reload and it's fine.

    Maybe try another online game to check whether its just dark souls or if its bigger.

    That is pretty strange. Have you tried playing from a different PSN ID? I don't know that that would make a difference in any way, but I'm just suggesting things I might try if it were me. If your PS3 isn't having any trouble playing games online, I'd say it must be what I was describing before. DkS thinks it's online but it isn't. I'm just trying to think of ways you can make it realize that it isn't. Hence maybe creating a new PSN ID and giving it a shot from there.

    If that doesn't fix it I'd email From customer support and tell them they sold you a corrupt game disk. They seem like a cool enough company that they'd help you out. I mailed Konami a corrupted Symphony of the Night way back when and then mailed me a new one. Stranger things have happened.
