Bluepoint fixed gold coin and "wrong string" issues

Bluepoint isn't done patching Demon's Souls - not when there are still exploits to be scrapped.

Update 1.004 does not come with official in-depth patch notes, but players have already noticed many changes and compiled their observations. Here's a recap from Reddit user LeeShawBrown:


  • Activity cards for warping into Archstones now work correctly.


  • Message ratings now display correctly, text and numbers no longer overlap.

  • The “Invasion Limit” network setting has been removed.

  • The “Server Selection” network setting now displays the correct latency (ms). The closest server should now show the lowest ping.

  • When “Show Headset” is disabled in the options, a new crossed-out eye icon will appear on the headset in the UI.

  • The gold coin problem has been fixed.

  • Ring of Magical Nature would give a free spell slot by granting a spell with it equipped, granting a spell and then removing it. This has been corrected.

  • The Ring of Longevity would allow rapid health regeneration when quickly equipped and removed. This has been corrected.

  • The damage number now appears to be capped at the enemy's total health.


  • Added new DualSense sound effects for item uses, like consuming warrior/hero souls.

  • Players are no longer able to break the standard progression route.


    • For example; this bug allowed loading 4-4, then warping to say 5-1 and closing the game as soon as 5-1 stops loading. Then, reopening the game and killing himself, he made it 5-4.

  • As originally intended, you can now obtain the Great Searching Sword from any curved sword, not just a Scimitar.

  • When reloading your current area on an ark, the menu selection will no longer change to the farthest arkstone in this world.

  • In the Old Monk PVP encounter, you no longer have to watch the cutscene every time as an invader.

Expanding on this list a bit, the gold coin trick was used to shatter the demon's souls through a combination of essentially unlimited luck and a particular weapon (the Blueblood Sword) that increased its damage. with this stat. It was fun while it lasted, but the glitch's days were numbered. It was too punchy.

Also, the point on the Great Seeking Sword is a big deal for anyone who hasn't chosen the Angel Ring as a gift. Long story short: you can trade this sword with Sparkly the Crow to get the ring, and this change – accepting any large research sword – makes the process less complicated.


So far, players have reported mixed results with this update's network changes. Some people are having trouble finding matches in previously popular locations now that there's a more granular server selection, but others say they're finding higher quality matches with better pings after this update. It also looks like Bluepoint has made a few changes that split player invasions and summons.


I'm not at all surprised to see the gold coin disappear or the "wrong chain" issues go away, but I'm curious about the co-op and PvP changes - I feel like Demon's Souls n is not yet fully installed.


At the very least, we still need to be able to delete our abandoned characters.
