I would love to watch you take on Sister Friede like this

My man Rudeism. You’re always going to the next level

Samuel Morse would be so happy

This is hands down the most impressive gaming feat I have witnessed in my 18 years of gaming, the amount of dedication and precision this must of took is astounding, when I earn enough money I'm giving you the trinium all star award for this

Misleading username. Thanks!

Your hard work and determination deserves to be noticed my friend

ID: hhvac31

You should check out Super Mario 64 blindfold speedruns as well 😀

ID: hhva08e

This is definitely more impressive, but I think I still prefer the banana run.

Now let's wait for Hob to hitless it on Morse code

ID: hhva537

I'd love to see it, but it might be literally impossible to hitless. There's a 250ms delay built in so I can do sequences without them being terminated too early. Some bosses have moves that are only barely slower than that - Twin Princes comes to mind. It could be possible with a lower delay, but hoo boy, that'd be a grind lol

ID: hhvaz4f

Yeah was not being serious

Everyone gangsta till some mf finishes DS using his dick as a controller.

Morse code is cool and all... but there is no sound to this gyf...

That might be the most impressive achievement of the humankind

I... I cannot even comprehend this

11 : Anonymous2021/10/24 14:31 ID: hhv5h5u

Yeah but did you stomp on the Fire Keepers head with it?

ID: hhv9lkp

I tried but I messed up my input lmao

12 : Anonymous2021/10/24 17:13 ID: hhvs38q

...but why?

ID: hhw2798


ID: hhx3yk4

because it's fun

How do you move with only that controller?

ID: hhvc0bz

Mentioned it in another post, but I can move in the main eight direction using a toggle system. If I want to move forward, doing the correct sequence will make him start moving. If I want to change direction, I use a different sequence, or if I want to stop, I repeat the previous sequence. I can't think of a way to "hold" a Morse code sequence, so this was the best way I could figure it out haha

ID: hhwtba4

Sequence, press or hold to move.

So you do the sequence, it toggles "move forward and right" mode. Then you tap or hold to actually move. As soon as you let go, it's back in "waiting for input" mode.

No idea if that's feasible. Probably more of a hassle than your way.

Players: Dark Souls is really hard

Also players: Let’s play Dark Souls with a Morse code controller

Giga Chad right here.

I bought Dark Souls 3 long time ago never beat the tutorial boss.

well done.

17 : Anonymous2021/10/24 15:43 ID: hhvf09x

When I read the title I'd assumed you'd have a single control stick for movement as well, but it's one button for everything! I don't even think I'd manage this in 60 hours like this with infinite hp...

18 : Anonymous2021/10/24 17:38 ID: hhvvtcr

Now do it with Sekiro

19 : Anonymous2021/10/24 18:35 ID: hhw4gw9

I actually think about this stuff when I'm stuck in Souls games. I think about the guy that did the no hit Soulsborne run and all the various no level builds and challenge runs. It sort of puts it into perspective and I think that if they can do that, I can do it normally.

Aweaome job man. Can't even fucking imagine beating Nameless King like that.

Now do the DLC so we can see you someone beat Midir that way!

Everyone - "Dark Souls is famously difficult"

Also everyone - "Watch me beat Dark Souls with a paperclip while blind"

21 : Anonymous2021/10/24 22:12 ID: hhwzssb

Wait, so did you set Morse style codes for each action (I.e. a roll is 2 fast clicks and a run is click click hold click) or something like that, I can't think of how this would work at all.

ID: hhx2zw6

Pretty much! I had to design it so the most important inputs (roll/attack/move) are assigned to the shortest sequences - so a roll is a short tap, an attack is a long press, moving forward is two short taps, etc etc.

ID: hhx33eu

Ok thank you so much for explaining this I was legit getting mad thinking oh fuck is this guy SPELLING EVERYTHING

22 : Anonymous2021/10/24 22:15 ID: hhx06xc

This boss doesn’t fuck around so for him to beat Cinder this way is outstanding.

ID: hhx2sq1

I actually found Twin Princes to be harder for exactly that reason. Lorian doesn't let up. Not being able to change the direction you're moving while you're healing works for DS1, but NOT for DS3 haha

A dude with purple hair would do this

24 : Anonymous2021/10/24 23:10 ID: hhx75z6

Ok whats next? People will beat it without an controler???
