- Works with the latest game version as of the anniversary update
- Prints the name of the person who died and the damage taken

  2. Copy the included ShowDeathCause.dll into the resulting C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Risk of Rain 2\BepInEx\plugins folder.
  3. Launch the game and enjoy! To remove you simply need to delete the ShowDeathCause.dll file.
