Hello Everyone!

Just like in the previous titles, modding your game is no hard job in Sekiro but I found my self obligated to publish this guide as Linux users’ mods won’t work without a simple trick.

Sekiro Mod Engine

First of all you need to install Sekiro Mod Engine, which enables us to modify the game preferences and also use the mods that we want to see in the game.

Firstly, you need to register to in order to download latest versions of the mods and the Sekiro Mod Engine. After creation of account, simply download it from this link

Download Page

After downloading Sekiro Mod Engine, you need to extract the file to your Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice installation folder and then make a directory/folder as “mods” on your installation directory.

Congrats! Now you installed Sekiro Mod Engine but it doesn’t end here of course. If you are on Linux you will realize that Sekiro Mod Engine is not working. Next step will be exclusive to Linux users.

Set Launch Options (Linux)

If you are playing the game on Linux and want to use mods, you need to go in your steam library and then right-click on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and select Properties. On the properties window select Set Launch Options and type

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="dinput8.dll=n,b" %command%

After typing just click on OK and launch your game. If you see no Logos of From Software and Activision, you are good to go.

Downloading and Installing Mods

You can download the latest mods from After downloading the mods you wanted, you simply extract and drag them onto your previously created “mods” directory/folder by regarding their specific installation instructions.

After all these steps, your mods should work flawlessly on both operating systems 🙂

Hello Everyone,

After 2 years of GNU/Linux adventure, I would like to tell how I got into this amazing community.

It was a cold night and I was on my Windows PC, browsing stuff on the internet talking with my friends over Steam and then while browsing Steam I stumbled upon an advertisement. Steam was promoting Ubuntu on its web-page and I was interested in it, so I took a look and then asked myself “I used to call myself a computer geek but I don’t even know what Ubuntu is, I should give it a try”, after persuading myself I downloaded my first GNU/Linux ISO and then made myself a bootable-usb stick with Rufus. After booting it from my flash drive I was amazed by how Ubuntu looked back in the day and started installing it.

At that time I wasn’t aware of the fact that this installation was going to delete all my files but it did and I learned this after the installation finished. Honestly I didn’t care, I was just so curious about GNU/Linux and was wondering how to learn it. To my surprise when I launched Firefox I got an AD telling me that I can learn GNU/Linux on Udemy and what a coincidence everything was on sale, I hurried up and bought myself a pack of GNU/Linux courses there.

At first it was hard to adapt but later on I really started to get used to my new Ubuntu installation. I was in love with it, yet I was a stranger to it as I was postponing my courses. For a time, it went like this but then our teacher assigned us to finish an online course for our performance evaluation, so I finished one of the courses there and signed up for a real course on Istanbul Technical University. There and on the web I learned how to use my system properly, I got acquired the basic skills such as using commands on Terminal and also learned the philosophy behind GNU/Linux and devoted myself to spread it among the people I know personally and the people I don’t know over the internet.

Last year (2017-2018) I installed came up with an idea of installing GNU/Linux in my university and gave a project but unfortunately it was rejected but then fortunately a windows machine broke down and I rescued the class by booting Ubuntu from my flash-drive which made me take support of the teachers and then my project got accepted. I installed Ubuntu to all of the computers that belong to our faculty and today GNU/Linux based OS’ are running on our computers.

Today, I continue my GNU/Linux adventure and seeking to improve myself in every way possible. I got invitation from Istanbul Technical University’s GNU/Linux Club and taking 3 different courses there. I am also trying to implement GNU/Linux to my Aviation Company.

I am very happy that, that night I stumbled upon Ubuntu and continued with it. Seeing it grow each and everyday is a great feeling for me. Congratulations on your new update Ubuntu!
