About This File

Credits go to: elishacloud


This DLL file is a DLL module that is designed to improve compatibility in games using DirectInput 1-7 (dinput.dll) by converting all API calls to their equivalent DirectInput 8 (dinput8.dll) ones. This allows older games to be able to use newer tools and wrappers written for DirectInput 8. An example of an engine that can make use of DirectInput is Unreal Engine 1. This also serves to disable mouse acceleration in UE1 games, and possibly in other old 3D engines as well.


To install just unzip the dinput.dll file into the folder of a DirectInput 1-7 program or game. Password is pcgw

Note: Do not attempt to overwrite any .dll in a Windows system directory as it is currently not supported and will not work.


Delete the dinput.dll file from the game's directory. You can also delete the associated log file, if there is one.
