    Methanhydrat got a reaction from Mars icecream for a file, Metro Mouse Fix   
    What is this?
    This fix makes Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux use raw mouse input to solve the issue of different sensitivities for horizontal and vertical movement. It also changes the sensitivity range to more reasonable values. It is easy to install and use and does not require any external configuration.
     

    Overview

    Description
    Even though the mouse input in Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux is quite good, both games apply different sensitivities for vertical and horizontal movement. They also have sensitivity settings that are too high for some players who prefer slower movement.
     
    This fix removes these problems by acquiring raw mouse input and injecting it directly into the game's input function.
     

    Features
    Raw mouse input
    Same sensitivity in all directions
    More reasonable sensitivity range
    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
    Important: 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.
     
     
    The fix supports the following versions of Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux:
    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).
    Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder*. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Metro 2033 Redux\"
    Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or GOG Galaxy

    See Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors* for information on how to use the fix with another fix, mod or injector that uses a DLL file with the same name.
     

    Uninstall
    Remove or rename the dinput8.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.
     

    Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors
    To increase the compatibility with other fixes, mods or injectors that are also using a dinput8.dll, this fix offers a remote loading feature of additional DLLs. This can be done in two ways:
    File method: The fix DLL will automatically load a DLL that has the same name as itself with the postfix _Remote added to it. For example dinput8_Remote.dll. Just rename the DLL file you want to load accordingly. This is the simplest way if you only have a conflict with one additional DLL
    Folder method: The fix DLL will also automatically load all DLL files regardless of their name in a sub-directory that has the same name as itself with the postfix _Remote added to it. For example dinput8_Remote. Just create a folder with the corresponding name in the install directory of the fix. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) DLLs

    Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process.
     

    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
    There are currently no known issues with the fix.
     

    Acknowledgments
    I would like to thank Magmarock (Steam/gog), who requested this fix and supported the development.

    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.
    GUI Requirements
    The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 to work; which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required version either through a recommended Windows update (Windows 7 and later) or at Microsoft here.
    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_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 mod 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 mod. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files.
    Input Bindings
    The GUI allows the binding of an action to an arbitrary combination of keys and buttons on the keyboard, the mouse or an XInput compatible controller. The system purposefully does not restrict conflicts, so multiple actions can be bound to the same key.
    Key Names:
    In case of the keyboard there might be a discrepancy between the key that was pressed and the one that is displayed. This is because the names are automatically translated based on the keyboard layout by using a Windows function. However, the mod always uses the physical keys as they were used during the creation of the binding, independent of the name that is displayed.
    Modifiers:
    Modifier bindings can be created by just using the corresponding key combinations. If you bind one action to Space and another another to LCTRL + Space and a third one to LALT + LCTRL + Space, only one of them will be triggered when Space is down, depending on the state of LCTRL and LALT. The system is not restricted to the usual modifier keys ALT, CTRL or SHIFT. Any key or button pressed before another acts as a modifier for the next one. Note that the order of the keys or buttons is only relevant during the binding process to distinguish bindings with the same modifiers. In the above example, Space could be held down and the other actions triggered by pressing LCTRL or LALT afterwards.

    Methanhydrat got a reaction from Andytizer for a file, Modern Warfare Remastered - Singleplayer FOV Fix   
    What is this?
    This fix lets you change the FOV of the singleplayer campaign, including the size of the weapon model. It is simple to install and use and comes with a GUI for easy configuration.
     

    Overview

    Description
    Despite being a decent PC version, the singleplayer of Modern Warfare Remastered lacks the option to set the FOV. Even though the default FOV is not as horrible as in other Call of Duty games, it still makes the campaign unpleasant or outright unplayable for some people.
     
    This fix aims to fix this issue by providing an easy and convenient way to set the FOV for the game.
     

    Features
    Option to set the vertical FOV to almost arbitrary values
    Option to set the FOV scale of the weapon model
    Simple to install and use
    Easy to configure via a GUI and ingame bindings

    Important: This fix is specifically designed for the singleplayer campaign and will not work with the multiplayer version
     
     

    Instructions

    Supported Versions
    Steam

    Important: This fix relies on the layout of the executable. Although it uses techniques to make it more robust to modifications of the game, it might have to be updated when the game is patched
     
     

    Install
    The fix does not make any permanent changes to the system, the game or the configuration of the game and can easily be removed (see below).
    Extract the XInput1_3.dll and the MWRSPFovFixGUI.exe files to the main folder of the game. For example "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered\"
    Start the MWRSPFovFixGUI.exe to configure the fix as desired
    Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Big Picture mode

    A few additional notes on the installation:
    You should hear a FOV Fix loaded message on game launch when the fix was loaded. This sound can be turned off in the config
    The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 and the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable package; both of which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required versions here and here


    Uninstall
    Remove the XInput1_3.dll from the game's main folder.


    Configuration
    To configure the fix you can use the GUI application. Remember that you can hover over almost any option with the mouse to get an explanatory tooltip.
     
    There are two FOV settings. The vertical FOV Base and the FOV Weapon Scale factor. The effective FOV is calculated by multiplying these two values. The scaling factor also affects the way the weapon is displayed in addition to the camera.
     
    By default the game uses a base FOV of 65.0 and a weapon scaling of 1.0. For a 16:9 27 inch display I am using a FOV Base of 66.0 and a FOV Weapon Scale of 1.15.
     
    Note that the settings can also be adjusted while in the game by using the corresponding keybindings.

    Methanhydrat got a reaction from MemphiS for a file, 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.

    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.

    Extract the file xinput1_3.dll and NAIOM-GUI.exe to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\NieRAutomata" Start NAIOM-GUI.exe and set the bindings and other settings as desired Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam


    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 Full compatibility with FAR mod


    Instructions Supported Versions
    This mod is designed for the official version of NieR: Automata on Steam and might not work when used with otherwise modified executables.
    Install
    The mod does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed.

    Extract the file xinput1_3.dll and NAIOM-GUI.exe to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\NieRAutomata" Start NAIOM-GUI.exe and set the bindings and other settings as desired Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam


    Note that even though the GUI is for configuration only and does not have to be running for the mod to work, it can be used together with the 'Reload Config' binding to adjust options of the fly. Update

    Perform a regular installation and just overwrite any existing files


    Note that an update retains all configured options unless they have actually been changed or removed in the new version. Uninstall

    Rename or remove the xinput1_3.dll from the folder of the game.


    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 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 The mod is currently not entirely compatible with the GeForce Experience overlay, which may not be controllable with the mouse in certain situations. However, the actual functionality can still be accessed by using the corresponding hotkeys The crosshair does currently not work in the hacking minigame and the standard mouse cursor will be shown instead


    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.
    GUI Requirements
    The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.1 to work; which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the program, you can download the required version either through a recommended Windows update (Windows 7 and later) or at Microsoft here.
    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 xinput1_3.dll automatically if it has the name xinput1_3_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 xinput1_3.dll.
    Folder method:
    The mod will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a xinput1_3_Remote sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the mod. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files.
    Input Bindings
    The GUI allows the binding of an action to an arbitrary combination of keys and buttons on the keyboard, the mouse or an XInput compatible controller. The system purposefully does not restrict conflicts, so multiple actions can be bound to the same key.
    Key Names:
    In case of the keyboard there might be a discrepancy between the key that was pressed and the one that is displayed. This is because the names are automatically translated based on the keyboard layout by using a Windows function. However, the mod always uses the physical keys as they were used during the creation of the binding, independent of the name that is displayed.
    Modifiers:
    Modifier bindings can be created by just using the corresponding key combinations. If you bind one action to Space and another another to LCTRL + Space and a third one to LALT + LCTRL + Space, only one of them will be triggered when Space is down, depending on the state of LCTRL and LALT. The system is not restricted to the usual modifier keys ALT, CTRL or SHIFT. Any key or button pressed before another acts as a modifier for the next one. Note that the order of the keys or buttons is only relevant during the binding process to distinguish bindings with the same modifiers. In the above example, Space could be held down and the other actions triggered by pressing LCTRL or LALT afterwards.
    Acknowledgments
    I would like to thank Kaibz for his continuous testing during the pre-release development of the mod. Without his detailed feedback and suggestions, creating the mod would have taken even longer than it already did.
    I also would like to thank DevianArt user JulioDRai for creating the awesome custom cursor package that is used by this mod.
