    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: Click on the "Create shortcut" button on the helper's main window. 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.

    Dark Souls Input Customizer

    Version 1.1

    11,584 downloads

    What is this? Have you ever wanted to open the gesture menu by Left Trigger + Spacebar + Mouse Wheel Down? Now you can! The Dark Souls Input Customizer is the successor to the Dark Souls Mouse Fix and allows you to bind any action to arbitrary combinations of keys or buttons on the controller, the mouse or the keyboard via a simple GUI. In addition to a complete fix of the mouse controls, the mod also provides advanced options, such as separate sensitivities for bow aiming or the usage of of non-standard actions like Kick, the creation of input profiles, as well as dedicated support for the Steam Controller. Overview Description The Dark Souls Input Customizer (DSIC) offers full customization of the controls of Dark Souls. It uses a flexible input system that allows the rebinding of every action to arbitrary combinations of keys or buttons on the controller, the mouse or the keyboard. Although this can in part also be achieved with existing tools, DSIC is much more flexible and wraps it all up in an easy to use package, along with additional functionality that is specially tailored to Dark Souls. DSIC also fully includes the Dark Souls Mouse Fix, which does not have to be installed separately. Features Bind any action to an arbitrary combination of keys or buttons on the controller, mouse or keyboard Flexible options such as individual sensitivities for camera movement and bow aiming Non-standard bindings such as Roll-Only, Kick or Leap Attack Complete fix of the mouse controls with UI cursor support and no additional smoothing or acceleration Includes a GUI for easy configuration Steam Controller support Compatible with DSFix Instructions Supported Versions This mod is designed for the latest, fully patched Steam version and might not work when used with an older or otherwise modified executable. Install The mod does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed. Install Durante's DSFix if you have not already Extract the contents of the DarkSoulsInputCustomizer.zip to the same folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition\DATA" Look for the dinput8dllWrapper line in DSFix.ini and set it to dinput8dllWrapper DarkSoulsInputCustomizer.dll. No additional configuration of DSFix is necessary Start DarkSoulsInputCustomizerGUI.exe to set bindings and other settings as desired Start the game normally, for example directly through Steam. If you want to change the settings while in the game, see the Configuration section below on how to do that A few additional notes on the installation: See Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors for information on how to solve conflicts with other mods that also use a DirectInput wrapper DLL You should hear a DSIC loaded message on game launch when the fix is installed correctly. This sound can be turned of in the config If you currently have the Dark Souls Mouse Fix installed, make sure to replace the line with dinput8dllWrapper DarkSoulsInputCustomizer.dll instead of just adding another one Uninstall Set the dinput8dllWrapper setting in DSFix.ini to none and delete the files of the fix Configuration Although the configuration using the GUI should be easy and straight-forward, there are some things to note: The GUI provides tooltips with additional information about a setting You can change settings while in the game by using the Reload Config binding. Just change the settings in the GUI as necessary, press save and then use the binding to reload the config in-game. You should hear a DSIC Reloaded sound message when the reloading was successful You may also want to enable borderlessFullscreen in DSFix for easier switching between the GUI and the game It is not necessary to unbind a key or button in the in-game settings to use it with the fix Movement And Camera Control The Movement/Camera Control setting determines how the camera and the basic movement of the character are controlled: Keyboard and Mouse: Enables raw mouse input for camera control and uses bindings for movement. Deactivates analog sticks and vibrations Gamepad: Standard controller behavior. Uses the left and right analog stick for movement and camera control. Disables raw mouse camera Steam Controller: Enables raw mouse input for camera control and uses the left analog stick for movement. This requires that the mouse is mapped to the right control pad in the Steam Controller software Note that this setting has no effect on any other bindings. It is entirely possible to use keyboard or mouse bindings in Gamepad mode an vice versa. This mod is all about customization and the input system is purposefully designed to be as flexible as possible. This should hopefully also help people who are using unusual controllers or are otherwise not able to play the game in the regular way. Non-Standard Bindings Non-standard bindings execute actions that usually have to be performed by using a context-sensitive key or a combination of keys. DSIC currently offers bindings for: Kick and Leap Attack Roll Only and Dash Only Auto Run Although they do not allow anything that cannot also be done manually, there has been some debate in the past over whether automation like this could be considered cheating. I am still not convinced by that and am currently of the opinion that the listed actions are primarily a matter of the controls and not the player's skill; especially since similar effects can already be achieved with external tools, such as AutoHotkey or severals different types of gaming software. Known Issues The Auto Cursor currently briefly activates the cursor when opening certain doors with keys. This is not easily fixable but should only be a minor issue, due to the short duration and small number of situations where this problem occurs. The dialog that pops up when summoning a co-op partner can currently not be controlled with the mouse cursor. All keybindings are currently disabled in the main menu. This is on purpose to prevent issues when navigating the menu and when entering a character name. 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. Acknowledgments I would like to thank Kaibz for his extensive testing, detailed feedback and valuable suggestions during the development of the alpha versions of the mod. Without him, creating the mod would have taken even longer than it already did. Additionally, I would also like to give a shout-out to the author of the original DSMFix for Dark Souls, which allowed me to enjoy several playthroughs of the game over the years. Finally, I would like to thank Durante, author of DSFix, who made the game playable in the first place. Without his work, everything I have done would not be worth much. Contact And Support If you like this mod and want to support the development or show your appreciation with a donation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other mods that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions.

    NieR: Automata - Input Overhaul Mod

    Version 1.3.0

    3,809 downloads

    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: 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.

There you can also find out more about other mods that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions. Version History v1.3: Added (optional) custom mouse cursors for menu and hacking Added dedicated binding for opening the after clearance debug menu Fixed regular fire binding behavior when being held down Fixed hacking while remote controlling an enemy Fixed an issue with "sticky keys" after exiting a menu or dialog Fixed mouse button control in menus that occurred after hacking an enemy Fixed crash that occurred on certain systems when exiting the game v1.2: Added pattern based game version compatibility check Overhauled crosshair aiming mode to use the (hidden) mouse cursor for controlling the aim Increased crosshair aiming precision Reduced input lag of crosshair Fixed crosshair alignment in certain perspectives Fixed aiming in hacking mode Fixed a loading error that occurred on certain system configurations Fixed a bug that prevented certain clothing items to be equipped properly when pod petting was disabled Fixed a bug that prevented the mod from being loaded at all if the Steam controller mode was enabled v1.1: The dedicated dodge binding now has the same distance and duration as the double tap version v1.0: Initial public release

    FEAR 2 Mouse Fix

    Version 0.3

    2,712 downloads

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

    Dark Souls Mouse Fix

    Version 1.4.1

    26,513 downloads

    Important The Dark Souls Mouse Fix has evolved into the Dark Souls Input Customizer (DSIC) and will no longer be updated. DSIC generalizes the functionality of the mouse fix to other input devices like gamepads and the Steam Controller. It also includes bugfixes, adjustments to the GUI and additional features, such as the creation of input profiles. For the time being, I will leave the mouse fix up, because it is stable and totally usable on its own. However, since DSIC provides the same functionality with additional improvements, there should really be no reason to prefer the old fix over the new mod. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What is this? This fix makes Dark Souls use raw mouse input without any additional smoothing or acceleration. It offers a flexible binding system, automatic cursor support for the UI, improved targeting and an easy configuration using a GUI. Overview Description Important: This is a beta version. Although it underwent some thorough testing before the first public release, there might still be some issues that need to be addressed. If you encounter any problems see the Contact And Support section on how to get in touch with me Although there already is a mouse fix for Dark Souls, which did a great job in helping many people (including me) to play the game with mouse and keyboard over the years, it is not an optimal solution. Because it emulates a controller, there are still some issues with sensitivity, apparent negative acceleration and overall sluggish movement. Using the cursor in the UI is also a hassle, because it has to be manually enabled and disabled via keybindings. Instead of emulating a controller, this fix injects raw mouse input directly into the game's camera functions, thereby avoiding any additional transformations. It also provides an auto cursor feature which automatically manages the visibility and capture settings of the cursor depending on the current situation. Features True raw mouse input without controller emulation No additional smoothing or acceleration Flexible options such as individual horizontal and vertical sensitivities for camera movement and bow aiming Allows any action to be bound to any combination of mouse buttons, the mouse wheel or keyboard keys UI Auto Cursor mode that enables and disables the cursor when in a menu or when switching out of the game Improved target switching Includes a GUI for easy configuration Steam Controller support Compatible with DSFix Instructions Supported Versions This fix only works with the latest, fully patched Steam version. Important: The fix relies on the layout of the executable. Older versions or ones that otherwise have been tempered with probably won't work. This also means that if the game were to be patched -- which is very unlikely at this point -- it might break the fix and require it to be updated. 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). Install Durante's DSFix if you haven't already Extract the contents of the DarkSoulsMouseFix.zip to the same folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition\DATA" Look for the dinput8dllWrapper line in DSFix.ini and set it to dinput8dllWrapper DarkSoulsMouseFix.dll. No additional configuration of DSFix is necessary Start DarkSoulsMouseFixGUI.exe to set mouse setting and keybindings as desired Start the game normally, for example directly through Steam. If you want to change the settings while in the game, see the Configuration section below on how to do that A few additional notes on the installation: You should hear a Mouse fix loaded message on game launch when the fix is installed correctly If you currently have DSMFix installed, it is not necessary to remove it. Just replace the dinput8dllWrapper dsmfix.dll entry in DSFix.ini with dinput8dllWrapper DarkSoulsMouseFix.dll It is not necessary to unplug the controller if you have one. You can even enable the controller on-the-fly by using the Input Mode Toggle binding (see Configuration) The GUI requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1, which should already be installed on most systems. If you are having problems starting the GUI, you can download the required version here I would recommend increasing the FPS limit to 60 in DSFix for the complete smooth experience. Keep in mind that there are some problems with unlocking the FPS though. You can find more information about that on PC Gaming Wiki here Uninstall Set the dinput8dllWrapper setting in DSFix.ini to none and delete the files of the fix Configuration Although the configuration using the GUI should be easy and straight-forward, there are some things to note: You can change settings while in the game by using the Reload Config binding, which is per default set to the '-' key on the numpad. Just change the settings in the GUI as necessary, press save and then use the binding to reload the config ingame. You should hear a Mouse Fix Reloaded sound message when the reloading was successful You may also want to enable borderlessFullscreen in DSFix for easier switching between the GUI and the game Although it is not necessary to bind a standard action when you are happy with the ingame setting, it is strongly recommended to exclusively use the bindings in the GUI of the fix It is not necessary to unbind a key or button in the ingame settings to use it with the fix The GUI also provides tooltips with additional information about a setting Binding System The new binding system allows you to bind any action to an arbitrary combination of keyboard keys, mouse buttons or the mouse wheel. Instead of manually selecting a key from a limited set of predefined keys, the new system works reactively. To bind an action, double left click the corresponding box. When the box turns green, press the combination of keys you would like to assign. The combination is set once any pressed keys are released. You should be able to use almost any keyboard key, independent of the keyboard type or layout. The key names are dependent on the layout currently set in Windows. If you are using an English layout, the key names will be in English, while an AZERTY layout will lead to French names. Bear in mind that the key names are automatically determined by using a Windows function and not all keys have pleasant display names. A few additional notes on the binding system: Each key pressed before another acts as a modifier for the next one Any key can be used as a modifier key, not just ALT, CTRL or SHIFT There is no limit to how many keys can participate in a combination. You can set a combination involving half a dozen keys if you want to The order you are pressing the keys in is only important during the binding process to differentiate between bindings that involve the same modifier keys To unbind an action double right click the corresponding box Auto Cursor Mode The Auto Cursor mode automatically manages the state of the cursor behavior depending on the current situation: It captures and hides the cursor when ingame and not in a menu It releases and shows the cursor when in the main menu, in a system menu or when the window goes into background, e.g. when using alt-tab It overrides all cursor settings in DSFix Non-Standard Bindings Non-standard bindings perform actions that usually have to be performed by using a context-sensitive key or a combination of keys. They are provided for convenience as they could also be implemented by using external tools, such as Auto Hotkey. Although they do not allow anything that cannot also be done manually, purists of the game might not want to use them. Movement Bindings The keybindings to move the character differ on a technical level from those you can bind ingame. They should fix the problem of sometimes not being able roll when running diagonally and not moving the camera at the same time, which existed in the game since launch. Input Mode The input mode specifies the behavior of the fix: Mouse and Keyboard: Enables raw mouse camera and keyboard bindings, deactivates controller input and vibrations Gamepad: Standard controller behavior, disables raw mouse camera and keyboard bindings Steam Controller: Standard controller behavior with the exception that the raw mouse camera is enabled and the right analog stick is disabled Note that: The Auto Cursor setting is independent of the input mode. For example, it is possible to play with a controller and only use the mouse for menu navigation if you want to The input mode can be toggled with the Input Mode Toggle binding. The toggle order is the following: Mouse -> Gamepad -> Steam Controller -> Mouse -> ... You should hear a corresponding sound message when the input mode is changed by using the binding Additional Information What You Should Know 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 Auto Cursor currently briefly activates the cursor when opening certain doors with keys. This is not easily fixable but should only be a minor issue, due to the short duration and small number of situations where this problem occurs. Apparently the dialog that pops up when summoning a co-op partner can currently not be controlled with the mouse cursor (unconfirmed). Acknowledgments I would like to thank Kaibz for his extensive testing, detailed feedback and valuable suggestions during the development of the alpha versions of the fix. Without him, creating the fix would have taken even longer than it already did. Additionally, I would also like to give a shout-out to the author of the original DSMFix for Dark Souls, which allowed me to enjoy several playthroughs of the game over the years. Finally, I would like to thank Durante, author of DSFix, who made the game playable in the first place. Without his work, everything I've done would not be worth much.

    Dead Space Mouse Fix

    Version 1.0

    46,743 downloads

    What is this? This fix makes Dead Space use raw mouse input without any additional smoothing or acceleration. It works with VSync and high frame rates and is easy to install without having to fiddle around with FPS limiters or config files. Overview Description The mouse controls in Dead Space are notorious. While many players report issues with positive or negative mouse acceleration or overall sluggish movement, others state that the controls are not that bad. This is because the engine applies a lot of transformations to the input that are based on frame time. This leads to movement that is generally better when the frame rate ist stable. The problem gets worse when activating V-Sync. This is why popular workarounds recommend to disable V-Sync and cap the frame rate to avoid fluctuations. Unfortunately, this also means that playing at higher frame rates is often not feasible, which also prevents users from taking advantage of GSync, FreeSync, Fast Sync or similar technologies. This fix attempts to circumvent those problems by acquiring raw mouse input and injecting it directly into the game's camera functions, making the controls as independent of the frame rate as possible. While the movement is still not as perfect as in other games -- e.g. DOOM -- it should be a huge improvement to the default behavior. Features Raw mouse input independent of FPS or VSync Reasonable sensitivity range Same sensitivity in each direction No dead zone for slow movement No additional smoothing or positive/negative mouse acceleration Improved mouse cursor No automatic camera re-center Configuration via the ingame settings as usual Simple installation and usage without any external configuration Note: Although the input is pretty raw when aiming, it may still feel a little bit sluggish when moving and turning the camera at the same time. This is because the game applies calculations based on the momentum of the player character to the input. 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. Steam GOG Origin* *The Origin version might crash on start when the ingame overlay is enabled. If that happens, disable the overlay in the game properties in Origin. If the game still crashes the problem might be unrelated to the fix as this is an ongoing issue with the Origin version. In that case uninstall the fix and try to resolve the issue first before installing the fix again. Install Note: 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\Dead Space" Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam, Origin 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 the game as usual. To change the sensitivity just use the ingame settings like you would normally. The fix also incorporates the x- and y-axis inversion settings. 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: 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 this 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) for his detailed bug reports and testing for the v1.0 version of the fix.

    Dead Space 2 Mouse Fix

    Version v1.2.1

    5,452 downloads

    TL;DR This fix makes Dead Space 2 use raw mouse input without any additional smoothing or acceleration. It works with VSync and high frame rates and is easy to install without having to fiddle around with FPS limiters or config files. Quick start guide: Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin\games\Dead Space 2\". Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Origin or Steam Features Even though the mouse controls in Dead Space 2 are better than in the first one, it still suffers from many of the same issues. Most notably, it has negative mouse acceleration and a sensitivity that is dependent on the frame rate, which leads to inconsistent movement when the performance is not stable. This fix circumvents those problems by acquiring raw mouse input and injecting it directly into the game's camera functions. Its features include: Raw mouse input independent of FPS or VSync Reasonable sensitivity range Same sensitivity in each direction No dead zone for slow movement No additional smoothing or positive/negative mouse acceleration Improved mouse cursor No automatic camera re-center Configuration via the ingame settings as usual Simple installation and usage without any external configuration Instructions Supported Versions This mod is designed for the latest, fully patched versions of Dead Space 2 and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables. Origin/Retail Steam Install The mod does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed. Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin\games\Dead Space 2\". Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Origin or Steam Uninstall Remove or rename the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game. Known Issues There are some short sections in the game where the fix does not work properly, for example the zero-g areas. I am currently looking for savegames close to those locations, so I can investigate the issues. The fix is also currently not compatible with latest version of ReShade, due to raw input conflicts, which result in the fix not receiving any mouse data. 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. 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. Acknowledgments I would like to thank Kaibz for his detailed bug reports and testing for the v1.0 version of the fix. Contact And Support If you like this fix and want to support the development or show your appreciation with a donation, you can find more information on my website. There you can also find out more about other mods that I have done and means to contact me if you have a question, want to provide feedback, bug reports and suggestions. Version History v1.2.1: Fixed Steam version support Fixed a launch issue on Windows 7 v1.2: Updated address system to increase compatibility with modified versions of the game Added support for remote loading of additional DLLs to increase the compatibility with other mods (see Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors) Fixed compatibility issues with certain mods and tools v1.1 (unreleased): Internal changes v1.0: Initial public release
  8. Topic title. I think it would be useful info, namely for those who have a Steam Controller and want to know if the support is there. Like for example, Rainbow Six Vegas doesn't allow the use of a controller and mouse at the same time but Half-Life 2 does. It would be nice to know if this is something that could be considered.
