Dark Souls: Prepare to Die

Theme by DemiGod7

Alright uh, hi! Back with a new theme 🙂

Okay so, initially this theme was supposed to be something different. It was supposed to be my first dynamic theme. But I failed at that…..big time. So yeah, I believe that this theme has potential to be much better than my version, if someone out there feels like editing it with dynamic elements.

My idea was to animate the bonfire as if it’s burning and maybe add some smoke effects etc. Also, maybe you will see two square boxes on the right. Maybe video footage can be added there or other dynamic effects. I was told that it is very hard to animate fire, and I tried to use a combination of Photoshop and GIMP but I failed miserably, it wasn’t even worth uploading. I guess my expectations were too high, huh OPTI? :). Maybe this is a request after all…

QA:
– What wallpaper is this? I can’t seem to find it….
Yes, this is possible. Visit the official dark souls site, and you will see that this is the background. I have a tool installed on Google Chrome that lets me edit a webpage. Initially, in those two boxes on the right were links for video and pre order (I think) but I erased those.

– Why cut all the icons?
Why not? It took some time, but I wanted to make a Dark Souls theme different than others.

I accept all criticism, be it bad or worse only when it is constructive.

OPTIMUS: @DemiGod7 & thecultofpersonality247 => DemiGod7: Yeah, you got the point, my friend… old games were so hard that it was a miracle being able to finish them: very few lives available (or nothing at all, in some games); limited credits/continues (do you remember?); no checkpoints, as you rightly said; only a gun to face endless hordes of enemies; fights against incredible bosses (oh man… R-Type was nearly absurd, but there was a similar game even harder called Saint Dragon); no time to rest between a level and another… It was a crazy world indeed! Oh yeah! Sega Master System,… Read more »

@DemiGod7 Lol. That difficult? The hardest game iv played in all my life is Ghost&goblins. They made a verision on the play station portable (i think its the same gameplay) And i started the 1st lvl & if you get hit 3 times, THE WHOLE lvl is over with. I couldn’t do it. At the time i was moor into the games they make now a days (easy games). @OPTIMUS well the lol part above was not for u it was for demigod. But back to you now. I KNOW todays games are soo easy. I used to be good… Read more »

Nice theme and you did a good job on the icons but I can’t see how your computer isn’t powerful enough, I could run Photoshop and the other programs with only using about 2/3 usage on my 2009(- 14th March 2013 ;() computer that had 3gb ram and had a 2.4ghz processor so unless you’ve got a really old computer then I don’t see your problem and if it is that old you seriously need to upgrade.

DemiGod7

I dunno, I’ll figure it out at some point, maybe I expect too much 😛

As for that big reply…..
I am 20 years old. I started my gaming years at early age with Sega Master System and mainly playing Alex Kidd. Side scrolling game with no checkpoints, just a certain amount of lives. I never finished it actually but it was the first game I ever played. Damn I miss the little pixelated dude who has my name…..

@DemiGod7 & thecultofpersonality247 => thecultofpersonality247: Well, you’re lucky, mate! If you started your “player life” with the N64, you were already entered what I call the “simplified era”. You cannot even imagine how hard the games were for the home computers and consoles in the 80s: this is because they were direct transpositions of their arcade versions, and the gameplay concept of that period simply was to make people wasting a huge amount of coins in the arcades… so, videogames were programmed to be nearly unbeatable. The point is during 70s and 80s, video gamers were considered a “niche audience”,… Read more »

Um….I am not sure.

This is a very unique game. You don’t have the Skyrim environments, but instead you have close quarters in multiple levels. You can go pretty much anywhere from the start of the game and the enemies are not leveled. The only reason to understand that you are going the wrong way is that you will die a lot…In order for me to go and complete the first big objective, I had to watch a walkthrough. I was getting lost all the time.

The Cult Of Personality

Oh ok. Well is it free roam?

DemiGod7

, yes that one. Dark Souls Prepare to Die I think came last year. And Dark Souls II is being made now.

: I have downloaded this script for GIMP called “Animated Fire”. Sometimes the program stops responding…..well, I’ll see maybe I download the program you mentioned. Also, thanks! 😀

OPTIMUS

: Hi there!

So, my friend… what happened with the fire?
And what’s wrong with GIMP?

As for the icons: try with the program I always used to draw my icons, backgrounds, etc…
The name is RealWorld Paint. It’s free, but despite this it has several professional features and it doesn’t require tons of memory.

Your theme…? I like it!
Nice icons! +1! 😀

The Cult Of Personality

we are talking about the dark souls that came out a year or 2 ago right? (maybe 3)

The Cult Of Personality

LOL. I have that list you have. I am a really good gamer. Iv been playing games since i was 5. I was sitting in my room playing the nitindo 64. lol. I was playing james bond on it. (cant remember what one)
No puase menu, that insaine. Is it free roam? Does your stagma come back on its own?

DemiGod7

You need some things in order to play Dark Souls: – Patience – Acceptance of the situation – Tolerance – Not being a casual gamer who plays for 2 hours per day – Anger management Now, if you have these things, you are clear to proceed in playing one of the hardest games ever made. – There is no pause menu. Even when you enter the inventory, the game plays on – There are not invisibility frames while drinking a potion. You can still get hit – There are not scripted battles. Boss will come and you have to hit… Read more »

Is dark souls a good game demi, faxtron?
+1

DemiGod7

I appreciate it Faxtron, considering you make some of the best themes here. And now comes the big problem. My PC. In order for me to run Photoshop and edit the icons, I have to close everything. Also, I downloaded the 32bit version of Adobe After Effects and it just won’t install. Moreover, when I try to do something on GIMP, most of the times it freezes and I get the “not responding” message. It took me 3 times longer than usual to edit the icons because my Photoshop takes longer to process and edit icons. That being said….I do… Read more »

Faxtron

Thanks man and +1 this theme is very well done. You have talent to do this every time I saw a theme created by you are good. To animate that theme with fire for example you can use adobe after effects, or even use a video with the effect pre made with a translucent background and incert the fire in the place you need with Photoshop. Or you can use a 3D program to do what you want too. Anyway there are many ways to get that effect there you only have to decide what method is better for you… Read more »
