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.

If you like this mod and want to support the development or show your appreciation, you can find more information on my website.

What's New in Version 0.3

      This fix restores some of the controls in Crysis Remastered to as they were in the original Crysis
      At this point in time it re-enables leaning and the classic weapon selection.
      Installation:
      Extract the "Libs" folder into \CrysisRemastered\Game\ Optionally extract the "Scripts" folder from the OPTIONAL folder to \CrysisRemastered\Game\ if you wish for fists to share the same hotkey (1) as pistols like in the original. If you wish to keep Remastered's default binding of 5 for fists this step is not needed Rebind the "Fire Mode" control and change the control options to either "Classic Nanosuit mode" or rebind "Armor Mode" and "Cloak Mode" to prevent conflicts with leaning Developed and tested using the launch version on EGS

      Name: Warrior Ch. 10 - Map 2 - Secrets 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!
