Mod Creator’s Notes:


The main installation path uses Mod Engine 2, available from GitHub. An alternate UXM installation path is also available. Both of these tools are in beta and are maintained by users in the FromSoftware modding server ?ServerName? (https://discord.gg/mT2JJjx).

For Mod Engine-based installation, you can follow this installation instructions video by Nax.

1. Back up your save file

Your Elden Ring save file is found in your Windows user directory. Start from “Local Disk” and find C:Users<user name>AppDataRoaming EldenRing<save id>. Make a copy of ER0000.sl2 and make sure you restore it before going back online. This also happens automatically the first time you click “Randomize”, but if you want to be sure, do it manually!

2. Go offline on Steam (optional)

If you don’t want randomizer runs to be interrupted or invalided, consider going offline on Steam for the duration of the run to prevent Elden Ring from automatically updating (Steam > Go Offline). This is not required, but otherwise your playthrough may not be completable in the case of a game update.

After the game updates, all regulation.bin edits based on the previous game version will be ignored. This includes all item location edits, character edits, and enemy attribute edits. It will be necessary to download a new version of the randomizer whenever one is available. If the seeds are compatible, the run can be resumed by renaming the existing randomizer directory, unpacking the new one, and rerunning with the same seed and options.
