How to use spawnsets

First of all, check out this useful tool made by VHS that makes switching between spawnsets very convenient. The spawnsets are automatically downloaded from the site. The only thing you have to do is select one and click the "switch!" button. Just make sure to go back to the main menu in Devil Daggers, so the file will be reloaded when you grab the dagger in the lobby (you don't have to restart the game).

However, if you cannot use that, the original way of changing which spawnset you're playing is as follows:

  1. Select the spawnset you want to use and click the download button.
  2. Rename the file to "survival" (no quotes), the file should not have a file extension.
  3. Navigate to the directory where Devil Daggers is installed and open the folder named "dd".
    By default, this is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\devildaggers\dd on Windows.
  4. Replace the file called "survival" with the file you just downloaded.
  5. Launch Devil Daggers.


Can I get banned for using custom spawnsets?
No, you can only get banned manually by the developer.
Can I override my real score using a custom spawnset?
No, the game only uploads scores done with the original V3 spawnset.
The game doesn't submit my scores anymore even though I put the original survival file back in the dd folder. Why?
It's always the safest to just reinstall the game completely whenever you want to play the real game again, as it might still not upload your scores even if you placed the original V3 spawnset back in the folder.
NOTE: This might be outdated. Just keep an eye out for the "score not submitted (error)" message. If you keep getting it even with the original file, reinstall the game.
How can I make my own custom spawnsets?
Check out these spawnset editors made by bowsr and Sojk. Or, if you're into hex editing, check out this guide by ThePassiveDada.
I've made my own custom spawnsets that I want to share with the community. Can I get them listed on here?
Yes, certainly. Send the files to, as well as the name of the spawnset and your name (author). Or just join the Discord server and send them there.
