About This File

What is this?

This fix makes FEAR2 use raw mouse input and removes the game's deadzone and sensitivity problems. It is easy to install and use and does not require any external configuration.

 

Overview

Description

While the mouse controls are pretty responsive, FEAR2 suffers from a deadzone for small movements, as well as an unusual high sensitivity, even on the lowest settings.

 

This fix removes these problems by acquiring raw mouse input and injecting it directly into the game's input function.

 

Features

  • Raw mouse input
  • No additional smoothing or positive/negative mouse acceleration
  • Configuration via the ingame settings as usual
  • Simple installation and usage without any external configuration

Instructions

Supported Versions

This fix relies on the latest, fully patched executables of the supported versions. Older versions or ones that otherwise have been tempered with might not work.

 

  • Steam/Retail
  • GOG

Install

The fix does not make any permanent changes to the game or the system and can easily be removed (see below).

 

  1. Extract the file X3DAudio1_5.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FEAR2\"
  2. Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Origin

Uninstall

  1. Remove or rename the X3DAudio1_5.dll from the folder of the game.

How To Use

After the installation the fix does not require any additional treatment. Just launch and configure the game as usual.

 

Additional Information

What You Should Know

This fix is essentially a hack and relies on the layout of the specific executable. There may be crashes or unexpected issues. Feel free to provide feedback so that the problems can get fixed.

 

Since the fix consists of an executable DLL-File, I could have put any harmful shenanigans in there. You just have to trust me that the file is clean.

 

If you don't -- and why should you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file. Be aware however, that because the fix uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could trigger anti-virus software without being harmful.

 

Known Issues

The mouse controls of the mech are currently unaffected by the fix and might use a higher sensitivity than the rest of the game. This should not be a big issue, since those sections are quite short and comparatively easy.

 

Contact And Support

If you like this mod and want to support the development or show your appreciation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other fixes that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports or suggestions.


What's New in Version 0.3

Released

  • Added support for GOG version
  • The fix is now disabled when controlling the mech. This is a temporary workaround until a proper fix for the mech controls is available

      Tomb Raider Mouse Helper
      v1.2
      for Tomb Raider 1-5 (1996-2000) by Core Design
       
      This Windows utility for the first five Tomb Raider games (I, II, III, The Last Revelation and Chronicles) runs in the background and provides mouse control in those games by converting mouse movements into key presses. This allows you to move the mouse to turn left and right and, while holding the right mouse button, look all around. It also enables firing with the left button, drawing weapons with the middle button and easily setting up WASD or ESDF control schemes.
       
      Features:
      * Move the mouse to turn left and right (also can be used to rotate menus).
      * Press and hold the right mouse button to look around (without moving).
      * Press the left mouse button to fire and grab ledges (also can be used to select from menus).
      * Press the middle mouse button to draw (and re-holster) weapons.
      * Use the WASD (or any) keys to run, go backward and sidestep left and right.
      * Scroll the mouse wheel or press left/right on it to rotate menus.
       
      Instructions:
      Simply run TombRaiderMouseHelper.exe and then run the game.
      (Optional) Create a shortcut that will run the helper and game together:
      1. Click on the "Create shortcut" button on the helper's main window.
      2. Drag and drop either the game's shortcut or its .exe file onto the next window.
        (This will create a new shortcut that runs the helper, then the game, then exits the helper when the game exits)
       
      Configuration:
      There are a few options that you can configure on first run, via the tray icon or via in-game hotkeys:
       * Whether to minimize the GUI to the tray on launch. Default: Off. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut.
          Toggle on to launch the helper silently to the tray.
       * Whether to exit when the game exits. Default: On. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut.
          Toggle off to leave the helper running.
       * The sensitivity of the mouse. Default: the middle mark.
          It's recommended that you don't adjust this unless you find that you really need to.
       * Whether to invert the mouse's Y axis. Default: On (because the game defaults to that)
          Toggle off to make panning up look up and down look down. Apples only to Look mode (holding the right button).
       * Whether to map keys to movement controls and other actions. Default: On.
          Toggle off or edit if any of the mappings are unwanted.
       
      Notes:
       * If the game is run as administrator, the helper must also be run as administrator in order to work. If you created a desktop shortcut from the helper's menu, then try running the shortcut as an administrator.
       * All features will work as expected only if the game is configured to use the default keys. That's because this helper maps buttons and keys to those specific keys. For example, the left mouse button is mapped to the Ctrl key, which is the default key for Fire. If you change Fire to be a different key, then the left mouse button will stop working until you assign the Ctrl key to something else. If you want to disable these mappings, you can do so in the helper's menu. For example, if you've already configured the game to use WASD (or you prefer ESDF), you'll want to disable the WASD mappings.
       * This helper works with the original DOS version of the first game (Tomb Raider I), but works better with the Windows version, which you can convert the DOS version to with the following instructions: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Tomb_Raider_(1996)#Run_the_game_without_DOSBox
       
      Modification:This utility is simply a compiled AutoHotkey script. If you're not satisfied with the given mappings or functionality and would like to tweak them, the source script (TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk) is in the "src" folder. You will need to download AutoHotkey from www.autohotkey.com to compile it. In the folder where you installed/extracted AutoHotkey will be a "Compiler" folder. In there is Ahk2Exe.exe, which you can use to compile your modified TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk into a new TombRaiderMouseHelper.exe. An icon for you to use is in the folder with TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk. You don't need to compile or worry about TombRaiderMouseHelperGUI.ahk (which mostly has code related to the GUI, not the game). It'll be included automatically when TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk is compiled. For help with using AutoHotkey, see the help file (AutoHotkey.chm) that comes with it.

      Name: Warrior Ch. 10 Map 2 Fix - V1.00
      Author: Corey DeFrancesco
      Email: Apocalypse612@yahoo.com
      ------------
      Tools (optional): xdeltaUI
      Patched File Name: war10b.map
      File Directory: $INSTALLATION_DIR$\GOG Games\Nox\maps\war10b
      This file patch applies to the GOG games release, but it should still be valid for the other versions as well. It addresses some issues related to a secret area and Mechanical Golem fight in Warrior Chapter 10 (Map 2) not triggering.
      I have included the modified map file in this pack. If you prefer, you can also use the patch file instead. In order to apply the patch file you will need xdelta (available at Romhacking.net).
      I used NoxEdit2014 in order to fix these problems. Huge shout out to those guys at the NoxCommunity.com forums for making the tool available.

      ------------
      Email me if there are any problems.
      Enjoy!
