No-Logo mod

The Dark Souls No-Logo Mod is a tool that removes the introduction logo shown at the start of the game. This mod is very useful for the Any% Force Quit category in which the player has to restart the game multiple times during a run in order to perform a specific glitch. The mod was created by blcd and only works for PC, on current patch.


The download for the No-Logo Mod can be found here (scroll down the page to find the DS1 version).

Another version that skips the logos and also triggers Offline Mode without requiring Offline Mode in Steam can be found here here.

A third version that skips the logos, trigger Offline Mode and also fixes the slow start-up time of the game some people experience when a controller is connected can be found here.
