    PC port and the pendant

    Post by fujiphoenix on Sun Aug 05, 2012 5:51 pm

    When the PC version of Dark Souls comes out, will we finally be able to find out what the pendent does. I have no knowledge of programming, but isn't there a file called something like .coelcbin that has the stats and functions of things in a game? It might not be called that, but there is definitely something like that.

    It would be nice if it did have a role in the dlc. Did the firstborn of gwyn ever encounter the Darkwraiths?

    I hope they don't find it that way, it would devalue the pleasure of finding it, just like with people who beat the game for their friends on their first run ever, just sucks the awesome feeling out.

    Haha, well the reason I'm asking is because on the Mass Effect 3 forums, people on PC can look in this file, and it tells them the stats of weapons and equipment. Even the stats and names of ones that they haven't made usable in the game yet, but are still present in the file. So I was just wondering if it is the same way with a game like dark souls.

    The pendant is not a usable item. It cannot be equi9pped in the quick use slots like any other item with an in game use. The pendant is a piece of the lore puzzle, a link to decipher. So no, the PC version wont find an answer.

    Will they at least change the desc. from the sun medal?
    Really, that should've been fixed a LONG time ago.

    Should it? Is it a mistake? Or is it on purpose!

    Is it really? It's totally different from the description shown at the character creation.

    I simply want to glitch myself to that place with the ten grail-like objects in the Firelink Altar.

    How do you have the 3D map? Actually, can you provide one copy for me?

    Actually, I saw Andre pushing a statue in one of the concept art... I'm trying look around in his area to see if I miss anything, after that, the mother and child statues...

    That statue was removed during the design process.
    Retro has the map and its in one of his archive threads.

    And when the PC users search the data for the Pendant's usage, they'll find a trollface.
    Made of code.

    I just think that someone who knows how to read code could go into the game files, pull up the part about the pendant, and read what it does. I'm not 100% sure, but it seems plausible.

    And Doughguy is right, they won't find anything in the code like that.
    However, they may be able to search the ENTIRE game for something triggered by the pendant.
    It might be a huge pain in the ***, but after some of the crap I've seen people here go through to try some ridiculous theory it should be a cake walk.
