So I'm pretty sure I am soft banned now. Downloaded the trainer, put the game in offline mode and went to main menu, started trainer, went in, gave myself the "max items" for the first two boss souls and then immediately destroyed a bunch since I tested it by putting them in my storage bank first and it gave me 400 of them (naturally way too much), so I gave myself only two, got the items with the boss souls (now gone). Gave myself some extra souls for making stuff, used the upgrade one to get my new boss weapon to +1 just so I could see if I wanted to use it. Leveled up some so I got 30 strength so I -could- use it. Gave myself 99 of the undead pile faction and sunbros, then deleted them down to 31. Got to max rank of pile faction. Restarted game in online mode, zero messages, zero summon places.
Given that there are no longer any items that "should not be there", i.e. more than one boss soul, I'm guessing it noticed I had two of the boss items without being in new game plus. I find that really unfortunate given that I really only cheated that in because I -hate- having to do new game + repeatedly just to get all the items, and I HATE HATE HATE having to grind multiplayer stuff to get items as well. Wasn't even game breaking or anything, just completionist.
Got no warning message either, so be careful all.
