For Dark Souls II Scholar of the First Sin Version.1.02/Calibrations 2.02

After some time I decided that I wanted to play one of my favorite games again, but being how it is in it's current state and the tools available I decided that I would try my best to make it into a more fuller experience. So as of now I am in the process of re-texturing as much as I can to make the world seem less cartoon-ish and hopefully better looking. I plan to do more as more tools are updated or created for Dark Souls II Scholar of the First Sin

What I have done:
- I have changed most of the Boss Soundtracks
- Changed 85% of Majula textures, skyboxes and NPCs

What I am planning to do:
- Better Enemy placements - Made possible by Jgwman63 and his SOTFS Level Editor and Repacker
- More accurate world space - I'll do my best to rectify this with editing of the sky-boxes and backgrounds in each map
- Better sound design once the tool that I am waiting on is updated for Dark Souls II/Scholar/Dark Souls 3
- Better soundtracks for bosses
- Better Item and lore texts once I find a tool that can edit in-game texts
- A better User Interface
- Changing the rest of the game's maps and textures
- Better Looking Armor

If you think that you have been soft-banned
- - - - -
The Soft-banning anti cheat in this game isn't what you'd think, no it isn't stored in a server owned by Fromsoft or tied to your Steam account. Instead for some reason it is stored locally in your computer in your Users folder. The game anti-cheat works in that if you are caught doing something that the developers never intended you to do that your save game is flagged thus sending you to the cheater pool.
This meaning that if you were Soft-banned you can still play on your account instead of family sharing to another and having to restart everything. SoIf you think that you have been soft-banned follow this guide:

1. Locate the DarkSoulsII folder in C:/Users(Username)/AppData/Roaming
2. Copy your saves and store/back them up somewhere on your computer
3. Delete the folder of the Banned Account
4. Go to Steam and validate your game
5. Read and accept the EULA
6. Start a new character
7. Alt-tab out of the game (You need it running)
8. Copy and Paste your save game in the newly made folder in AppData/Roaming/DarksoulsII Note - Only do this if you got banned by a program and not having impossible weapons or stuff before you should have them otherwise in a couple of hours you'll be soft-banned again
9. Play again
