  3. DSOAL

    https://github.com/kcat/dsoal
    About
    =====
    This project is for a DirectSound DLL replacement. It implements the
    DirectSound interfaces by translating the calls to OpenAL, and fools
    applications into thinking there is a hardware accelerated sound device. EAX is
    also implemented (up to version 4) by using OpenAL's EFX extension, allowing
    for environmental reverb with sound obstruction and occlusion effects.
    Ultimately, this enables DirectSound applications to enable their DirectSound3D
    acceleration path, and turn on EAX. The actual processing is being done by
    OpenAL with no hardware acceleration requirement, allowing it to work on
    systems where audio acceleration is not otherwise available.
    Or more succinctly: it enables DirectSound3D surround sound and EAX for systems
    without the requisite hardware.
    Source Code
    ===========
    To build the source, you will need CMake 2.6 or newer (you can get it from
    <http://www.cmake.org/>). You can either use the CMake GUI, specifying the
    directories for the source and where the build files should go, or using one of
    the command-line programs, for example by first making sure to be in an empty
    directory where the build files will go (such as the provided build/ sub-
    directory) and running cmake with the path to the source.
    Once successfully built, it should have created dsound.dll.
    Usage
    =====
    Once built, copy dsound.dll to the same location as the desired application's
    executable. You must also provide an OpenAL DLL in the same location, named as
    dsoal-aldrv.dll, or else the DLL will fail to work. Some applications may need
    to be configured to use DirectSound3D acceleration and EAX, but it otherwise
    goes to work the next time the application is run.
    Source releases, the Git repository, and Windows binaries for OpenAL Soft are
    available at its homepage <http://kcat.strangesoft.met/openal.html>.
    Instructions are also provided there.

  12. DirectInput FPS Fix

    TL;DR
    The DirectInputFpxFix fixes an input related FPS drop/slowdown problem that occurs in FEAR, its expansions, Condemned: Criminal Origins and other games. It is easy to install and does not require manual disabling of HID devices.
     
    Quick start guide:
    Extract the file dinput8.dll to the folder containing the executable of the game. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FEAR Ultimate Shooter Edition"
    Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or GOG Galaxy.


    Features
    The DirectInputFpsFix fixes a bug that causes the FPS to severely drop after a few minutes of play. This problem is probably most widely known in regards to the game FEAR and often occurs in conjunction with the usage of Logitech devices.
     
    However, the problem also crops up in other games using the same engine, such as the FEAR expansions or Condemned: Criminal Origins and with non-Logitech hardware configurations. A similar problem has also been reported to occur in other titles, like Prototype.
     
    Although this issue can often be fixed by disabling most/all HID-Devices in the device manager, it is bothersome to do so and lately some people reported that that solution does not even work at all anymore, especially on machines running Windows 10.
     

    Instructions

    Supported Games
    The fix is agnostic towards the game that uses it and should therefore work with all versions of a supported game, including the Steam, GOG and retail versions.
    Confirmed: FEAR and its expansions
    Condemned: Criminal Origins

    [*]Supposedly:
    Prototype
    Kane & Lynch: Dead Men



    Feel free to provide feedback if the DLL works on other games as well.
     

    Install
    The fix does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed.
    Extract the file dinput8.dll to the folder containing the executable of the game. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FEAR Ultimate Shooter Edition"*
    Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or GOG Galaxy.

    *Note that for the FEAR expansions the fix also has to be installed into the corresponding sub-folder of the game
     

    Uninstall
    Rename or remove the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game.


    Known Issues
    There are currently no known issues with the fix.
     

    Additional Information

    Antivirus Software
    Since this mod consists of an executable DLL file that uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could be classified as malicious by antivirus software. In that case, it might be necessary to add an exception rule to the scanner.
     
    If you lack the trust in random people on the internet -- and I would not blame you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file.
     

    Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors
    To increase the compatibility with other mods or injectors that are using a wrapper DLL, this fix offers two methods for remote loading of additional files. Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process.
     
    File method:
     
    The mod will load another dinput8.dll automatically if it has the name dinput8.dll. Just rename the DLL you want to load accordingly. Using this method will lead to an error if the renamed DLL is not itself a dinput8.dll.
     
    Folder method:
     
    The mod will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput8 sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the mod. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files.
     

    How This Works
    The fix is implemented using a common technique known as DLL hooking.
     
    User input in games like FEAR can be realized via DirectInput, an API by Microsoft for interacting with HID-Devices. The library is ancient and should no longer be used today, because there are other ways to get mouse and keyboard input, especially for games.
     
    The FPS drops happen because the thread that runs DirectInput massively slows down after a while (as can be seen in tools like ProcessExplorer).
     
    If an application uses a library like DirectInput, it needs a so-called DLL (dynamic-link library) where the functionality of the library is stored. In many cases, especially for libraries provided by Microsoft, these DLLs usually reside in the Windows folder.
     
    However, there is an order of how an application searches for the DLLs it needs. Since the DLL of the fix gets copied into the main folder of the application and has the same name of a DLL needed by the game (the one of DirectInput), it gets loaded instead of the one in the Windows folder.
     
    This means that all calls to DirectInput go through the Hook-DLL and can either be directed to the original DLL in the Windows folder or changed as necessary. This also allows some insight in how exactly the library is used by the game.
     
    It turned out that some games not only unnecessarily register all HID-devices, they also call several functions every frame that usually only should be called once during initialization. The latter seems to apply only to devices that are not keyboards or mice. This eventually leads to circumstances where a lot of time is spent opening and closing device connections.
     
    The fix changes the DirectInput initialization in such a way that only keyboard and pointer devices get registered.
