Dark Souls (ダークソウル, Dāku Sōru?) is an action role-playing video game by FromSoftware. It was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and published by Namco Bandai Games internationally.[2] A spiritual successor to FromSoftware's Demon's Souls and the second installment of the Souls series, Dark Souls began development under the working title of Project Dark.[3] The game was released in Japan on September 22, 2011, and in North America, Australia, and Europe in October.[4] On August 24, 2012, the "Prepare to Die" edition of Dark Souls was released for PC, featuring additional content previously unavailable to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users. On October 23, 2012, the additional content from the PC version was released as downloadable content for consoles under the title Artorias of the Abyss.[5]
Dark Souls takes place in the fictional kingdom of Lordran. Players assume the role of a cursed human character who has been chosen to make a pilgrimage out of the Undead Asylum to discover the fate of the Undead. The plot of Dark Souls is primarily told through descriptions of in-game items and dialogue with non-playable characters (NPCs).
Dark Souls received critical acclaim, with critics praising its combat depth, marked but fair difficulty, and deeply rooted mythology.[6] In April 2013, FromSoftware announced Dark Souls had sold 2.37 million copies.[7] The PC version was the second most played Games for Windows Live title in 2012 based on unique users.[8] A sequel, Dark Souls II, was announced on December 7, 2012, and was released in March 2014.[9]

Personal Notes:
1. install Dark Souls on Windows (virtual machine or you can try this wrapper)
2. copy Steam folder inside Program Files
3. if you want to play offline copy the crack inside DATA folder (that is inside Dark Souls folder).
4. choise DarkSouls.exe if you use the crack, Steam.exe if not (if you choise Steam add -no -dwrite).
Dsfix is not compatible with this port, if you know how to improve the port just write a post and/or pm me.


My System Specs:
- OS:   10.10.3
- CPU: Intel i7 Ivy Bridge quad core 2.3 GHz
- RAM:  8GB
- Video: Intel HD 4000 and NVidia 650m 1 GB
- Disk Space:  8GB


Known Issues:
- keyboard input does not work on fullscreen native mode.
- Dsfix does not work (if you know how to fix this just write me a mp... this is not a reup of the old wrapper).

Installation:

1. install Dark Souls on Windows (virtual machine or you can try this wrapper)

There's no sound, and the main menu title is gone. It crashed when I exited the settings after turning off AA.

I don't have any sound problem so I cannot say what you can do to avoid that.
try not to change the settings.
Also I don't have any controller, I played it with mouse + keyboard.
Does this still have the intel iris pro issue?

I cannot do tests on iris pro (I don't have a mac with this graphics card). Still you can test it (if you already bought the game) and tell me if it work for you (if it work I will update the informations). only bergamasq and prout2 got problems for now.
Where are DarkSouls.exe?

if you bought the game and you installed it through steam you will find it in SteamApps folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common

you need to install it on a windows computer or you need to install steam inside this wrapper and install the game after that.

if you still need to buy the game, buy it.... this is just a wrapper to start the game on Mac.
When I tried to download steam onto the app...it didn't do anything (Actually it's no that it didn't do anything, it failed to download for some reason). It just said to make sure that it was being downloaded into the c drive. How do you do that?
Oh and by the way, when I open "show package contents," I don't see a drive_c folder, but instead an exe so I don't even know where to put the copy of the steam folder since there's no program files.

You are right but also wrong... I downloaded the zip and the link to the drive_c folder is broken... but you can access the real drive_c folder in Contents->Resources->drive_c... you can remake the link now.
that said if you want to use steam you need to start wineskin.app (inside the .app wrapper) Advance->Tools-> Winetricks and install steam winetricks.
I downloaded the game with a windows virtual machine on steam and the first time I used the crack (because it is easier and there are less problems) but after that I tried with steam and it work.

Sorry I don't have this problem so I cannot fix it. I finish this game with playonmac port. maybe is a graphics card problem, what is your mac graphics card?
you can try to use a virtual box virtual machine with a free copy of windows (you can try it for 30/60 days if I remember correctly), to install the game and get the folder. you wont lose any save. I don't know if it can help, if this is a graphics card problem it probably wont, and if you have an integrated card probably this is the problem.

I have this problem too, though I'm using a different wrapper. I'm using a macbook air mid 2012, 1.3 Ghz i5, 8gb ram, OS 10.9.5, Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536 MB. I'm guessing it's the graphics card. There's no bonfire problem when I tried the same wrapper on my other machine that has a nvidia 9500GT, but of course the game runs too slowly to play.

Not sure if this can be fixed: it reminds me of the crazy blue-green-yellow random patterns that popped up when you tried to run the Porting Kit's Medieval Total War wrapper on my macbook. Paul the Tall warned that wrapper didnt work on Intel integrated cards.

Thanks anyway!

strange. I tried with the intel hd 4000 by disable the nvidia 650m with a tool and it works... I thought it was only a problem of iris pro card I didn't know it was also a problem of hd 5000. thank you I will update the first post

Thanks for the reply, keep in mind I was using a different wrapper, the "steam build 2" wrapper on Porting Kit (which by the way works nicely for installing the game if you don't have access to a windows machine). I couldn't get your wrapper to launch on my comp for some reason.
Lief, it looks like it's doing the weird bonfire glitch on my end, too - tried turning AA on and off and it was still happening. I have a Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB and am using El Capitan.

I don't understand what is this "weird bonfire glitch". I thought it was a crash, but you talk about it like a graphical glitch...
can you make a screeshot?

Anyway I cannot fix any problem because I only created a wrapper with wine hq instructions, if there are some graphic glitch I suggest you to ignore them... if it's a crash problem just try to make a new wrapper with the instructions that I made few post up.

I have the same problem did u find  solution for it?

I never solved it, but you can sort of back into the bonfire to get the "rest" menu up without actually "looking" at it directly (pretend it's the sun, or the anti-King of Sweden ;), so avoiding the glitch. If you do look at it by accident I found sometimes if you turn around to look away and then command+tab out of Dark Souls to the Finder and then command+tab back again that resets the graphics so they draw correctly. Pretty lame workaround I know, but it might make it just playable!
