The Homebrew Guide to Photo Mode in Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is consuming our daily lives. Ever since it released on June 22, we have played it night after night. It’s full of lore, history, and stunning landscapes to explore and stare at for hours. We often find ourselves lost gazing at the world around us between goblin, verbeeg, and giant fights. So, we decided to take some pictures to remember our time with the game.

While Dark Alliance doesn’t have a built-in photo mode, we uncovered a way to make it ourselves. It’s a simple process that anyone playing can do themselves. By the end of our guide, you will be able to capture Dark Alliance in all its D&D glory.

Dungeons & Dragons Dark Alliance
  1. HUD: Bring up the option menu and go to HUD
  2. Settings to Turn Off: The HUD can be confusing at first but the following list will help streamline the process. Make sure all of the following are clicked off:
    • Player Meters
    • Threat Indicators
    • Mission Objectives
    • Objective Markers
    • Buff/Debuff Icons
    • Usables Icon
    • Abilities Icon
  3. Opacity: Unfortunately, all of this won’t get rid of the charge ability meter. So, to solve this problem you will have to turn the HUD opacity all the way to zero. It’s simple but takes about 10 seconds to do so.

Once all of the above has been done, you can set up your shot. From there all you do is use the built in Xbox or PS4 capture button or take a screenshot on PC.

It’s also a great way to make combat more challenging as you can’t see any of your stats.

Hopefully, Tuque Games and Wizards of the Coast add a true photo mode to Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance in the future.
