Find the place I killed it and search again. Nothing there. I think I searched the beast but it cut straight to a scene talking with elf. I searched the whole area after the chat. All in all it's minimising, closing down, googling: quite a bit is like this.
My fight with the Kayran, I should have closed down and done the next day. I was beyond exhausted at the time. Still though I thought I was doing OK considering. Many deaths were not my fault.
I will look that up. I tried putting the files in the Steam DATA folder. Crashed on loading up save file. Need to start again. The DSMousefix does work as an desktop gadget. I think I need to get DSfix and DSMousefix files into the DATA folder. Plus I have to get the windows cursor off the screen. Total pain that, (and F9 not working for it.) If I can't get rid of it, I think it's game over.
I had the same problem :D.
Did you follow the instructions step by step?
In my case I forgot a few steps and thats why it did not work :D.
First thing, in terms of crashing, did you turn Anti Aliasing OFF the game before installing DSFix? If you did not, it will crash.
Its unclear if you will have to do everything again or if just putting the DSFix files out of the folder, turning on the game, turning off anti aliasing and finally putting the files back will work.
Second, the mouse problem seems to have something to do with the wrong version of DSFix and Mouse fix (the most updated version does not work for everyone).
I cant tell from memory what version I use, but know it is not the current one, as I had to tery previous versions before I found the combination that works for me.
But if you give up so early with this problem, im quite sure Dark Souls is not for you :D.
I can however check when I get home what version I use and send you links to it if you want.
I can also send you copies of the files I use with the settings already in place, if the notepad modifications are not something you feel safe with. (F9 does not work for me either)
DSFix is a strange beast. It worked perfectly well untill the steam update, and now not everything runs well.
However, most commonly its a mistake on the users part by making a mistake in at a certain point in the installation process. (I know it was my case more than once).
Personally It took me around 4 hours to get it running (since then I logged over 450 hours so I dont complain).
The problem here is that not all dark souls games have the same patch (there are 4 regions, each of them had a slightly different patch) so It takes time to get it working.
