About This File

IMPORTANT

 

Since game version v1.09 this fix is no longer needed, because the game received an official option to enable XInput support.

 

If you are interested in using PS4 button prompts, you can find a corresponding option in the most recent version of the PRIC mod.

 

---

 

TL;DR

This fix resolves controller issues in Prey that were introduced with patch v1.05, by forcing the game to use XInput instead of the Steam Controller API by Valve.

 

Quick start guide:

  1. Open the archive and choose the button prompts you want to use by opening the corresponding folder
  2. Extract the file dinput8.dll to the release sub-folder of Prey. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Prey\Binaries\Danielle\x64\Release\"
  3. Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode
  4. Important: If the fix does not work, make sure that you have turned off the usage of the Steam Controller API (see below)

Features

While Prey originally offered good controller support, patch v1.05 introduced various issues. Instead of choosing either XInput or the Steam Controller API based on the user settings, the game always uses the latter. This results in problems with the movement as well as certain controller settings or the controller not working at all if the user has disabled the usage of the Steam Controller API in game's properties in Steam.

 

This fix re-enables XInput support and forces the game to use it, regardless of the settings.

 

Instructions

Supported Versions

This fix is designed for the latest, fully patched version of Prey and the Mooncrash DLC and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables.

  • Steam v1.08

Note that the fix currently does not work with the demo version of the game.

 

Install

The fix does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed.

 

Important: When using a non-XInput controller such as the DS4, you will need a XInput emulator like DS4Windows for this fix to work

  1. Open the archive and choose the button prompts you want to use by opening the corresponding folder
  2. Extract the file dinput8.dll to the release sub-folder of Prey. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Prey\Binaries\Danielle\x64\Release\"
  3. Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode
  4. Important: If the fix does not work, make sure that you have turned off the usage of the Steam Controller API (see below)

Although the fix forces the game to use XInput, it is necessary to disable the usage of the Steam Controller API in the game's settings.

 

The safest way to do this is the following:

  1. In the Steam client go to the menu Steam -> Settings -> Controller -> General Controller Settings
  2. Make sure PS4/XBox Configuration Support is checked
  3. Go to Big Picture mode and find Prey in you library
  4. Click Mange Game -> Controller Options and uncheck Use Steam Configuration for Non-Steam Controllers
  5. Uncheck the setting from step 1 again, depending on whether it was checked in the first place

Uninstall

  1. Remove or rename the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game.

Known Issues

There are currently no known issues with using the fix.

 

Additional Information

Antivirus Software

Since this fix 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 fix will load another dinput8.dll automatically if it has the name dinput8_Remote.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 fix will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput8_Remote sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the fix. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files.

      TL;DR
      This mod fixes various mouse and keyboard related input issues in NieR: Automata. Its features include raw mouse input for camera and aim movement, an entirely new crosshair aiming mode, non-standard bindings for dash/evade, pod auto-fire and more.
      Quick start guide:
      Important: If you currently have NAIOM v1.3.0 or older installed, remove the XInput1_3.dll from the games’s directory first!
      Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\NieRAutomata\". Start the NAIOM-GUI.exe to configure the mod (might require .NET runtime 3.1.0) Start the game as usual, for example directly through Steam Download sources:
      PC Gaming Wiki Nexusmods Features
      The NieR: Automata Input Overhaul Mod (NAIOM) aims to solve all keyboard and mouse related issues in the game. As many other rough PC ports, NieR was primarily designed with a controller in mind and internally maps keyboard and mouse input to gamepad controls. This leads to various issue, including negative and positive mouse acceleration, as well as weird controls in certain perspectives, e.g. when aiming in side-scrolling mode.
      Its features include:
      Raw mouse input without any acceleration or smoothing Precise sensitivity configuration (calibrated for KovaaK’s SensitivityMatcher) Fixed camera movement in third-person perspective New (optional) crosshair aiming mode for side-scrolling and top-down perspective New (optional) mouse cursors for menu and hacking (made by DevianArt user JulioDRai) Completely rebindable standard actions to any key or button combination including additional mouse buttons Non-standard keybindings, such as a dedicated dash/evade and pod fire toggle Compatible with FAR/SpecialK mod (must be configured to not use dinput8.dll) Known Issues
      In the third-person view the camera might sometimes judder when it is near obstacles, such as walls. This has only partially to do with the mod, since the issue also occurs without it, but might just be more noticeable with it enabled Using the bindings of the mod does currently not change the ingame button prompts The new aiming mod crosshair is sometimes slightly misaligned When using the new aiming mode the crosshair does currently also activate in situations where the aiming direction is fixed, e.g. in the side-scrolling flying mode The non-standard item switch bindings currently do not work as described in the tooltip when certain items are equipped Supported Versions
      This mod is designed for the latest version of the game and might not be compatible with older or modified executables!

      Drag and drop the "data" folder from the archive to your game installation folder (and overwrite).
      If you want to be able to revert to the vanilla Xbox buttons, back up movie1.cpk  in your install folder by renaming it.
      Notes:
      This mod is missing the L1-R1 prompts for defending against the "Strike Back" support type. This mod is safe to use in Online Battle mode.

      Configuration files for x360ce to enable support for Xbox One controllers in Assassin's Creed Director's Cut and Assassin's Creed II, including vibration.
      This is a more up-to-date version of the AC1 and 2 fix that improves compatibility with the latest build of x360ce (3.2.10.82) and Xbox One controllers.
      To install simply download and extract the contents of the zip file into the game's installation folder.
      x360ce is not required for the fix to function but is useful should you wish to make any configuration changes. Download the 32-bit (x86) version here and extract it to the same location as the other two files.
      Known issues: Fix does not support simulatenous trigger inputs. To workaround this issue disable "hold to lock" in the game's options menu (disabled by default). This issue only affects AC1 as AC2 does not appear to support "hold to lock" on PC.
