    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. Contact And Support If you like this fix 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.

  3. If you are experienced PC player, you have probably came across a broken or malfunctioning mouse. We are going to look at the unwanted double-click problem and provide detailed guide with many macro photos and video how to fix it regardless of mouse model. Without any soldering and with just basic tools you can bring back to life your older or aging, but once expensive, gaming mouse. The problem Double-clicking in single click, inability to create continuous line in paint application, difficulty to move camera in RTS, iron sights not sticking in FPS - these are all symptoms of a broken mouse button. Culprit in majority of cases is a component called miniature snap-action switch, or micro switch. This switch contains three leads and a metal with little spring. This metal is jumping between two contacts thanks to the spring and bridging connection between contacts. This spring can become tired so it isn't providing pressure necessary to maintain connection. With combination of dirt (dust) and oxidation on the contact areas, it is a perfect recipe for unstable connection and unwanted double clicks. Fig. 1 - types of micro switches Tools and tips You will need: screw driver (type depends on your mouse model, Phillips and flat head should be enough tweezers safety pin, nail scissors or something pointy contacts cleaner or rubbing alcohol any type of glue camera (cellphone will suffice) little bit of time Tips: Make several photos of each step, it will help you tremendously in reassembly. Don't use much force, there can be hidden screws or latches and you will break something if you are not careful. Disconnect your mouse from computer and pull out batteries first. Take your time, you do not have be finished in ten minutes. Every photo in this guide is in high resolution, visit gallery for additional details. And as usual, PCGamingWiki is not responsible for any damages caused by following this guide. 1. Mouse disassemble This step is unfortunately rather vague, because of each mouse having vastly different design. Be extra careful and look for hidden latches and screws when pulling parts apart. First of all you have to find screws on your mouse. Usual places are under rubber feet, in battery compartment and under stickers. Consult Google with a name of your mouse and word "disassemble". Fig. 2 - possible screw locations After getting rid of all the screws, upper part of the mouse should come apart. Now it is a good time to clean any oil and dirt from many crevices in the upper cover with rubbing alcohol or soap water (in case upper cover does not contain any electronics). Let it dry thoroughly. Example of mouse insides are displayed on figure 3. Fig. 3 - Logitech MX700 without cover Now look for micro switches that needs fixing. You have to have clear access to them in order to properly fix them so additional disassemble could be required. Usually there are few screws, that holds everything to the plastic base, internal connectors, scroll wheel, that can be easily put away etc. In some cases there can be hard connection between boards that cannot be non destructively disassembled. Again take a lot of photos during your work for future reference. For example in figure 3, Logitech MX700 is very complicated mouse with three layers of PCB's, two of which has soldered hard connection (4 pins directly above scroll wheel and on the left of D-3 component) and soldered flat cable between two other (upper right corner, white cable). There are five fixable switches on this mouse and three unfixable. Vast majority of manufacturers are using Omron type switches for main buttons (see figure 1 and 4). There is a possibility of finding smaller, four pin surface mounted switches, that cannot be opened and repaired without soldering. These can be also found in Xbox 360 controller. Fig. 4 - Omron type micro switch 3. Opening the micro switch So you have located faulty switch and ensured enough access to it. Opening it is fairly straight forward. There are usually two latches, that has to be lifted separately (figure 5). Some manufacturers has these latches on the long sides of the switch (figure 1). Fig. 5 - location of latches on the Omron micro switch Insert your open safety pin or point of scissors under the latch to unlock it and lift one side of the switch cover slightly (figure 6). Do not try to lift whole cover up just yet, you'll break the second latch. Fig. 6 - one latch unlocked and cover slightly lifted Do the same on the other side of the switch so you'll get situation displayed on figure 7. Rotate the mouse (or part with the switch) so the white pin on the top of the switch is pointing down. Fig. 7 - both latches unlocked and both sides of cover slightly lifted Now you can pull cover away from the base. The white pin is loose in the cover and can be easily lost if not handled upside down. At the end, you'll end up with situation displayed in figure 8. Fig. 8 - uncovered switch and detail of the white pin 4. Metal spring fun You can see insides of the switch. The part, that needs fixing, is the long metal with spring in the middle and It needs to come of the rest of the switch. This is another not very difficult task, lay the switch flat, as shown on figure 8, hold the part without the spring with two fingers and twist the metal to the side. It should go fairly easily and you'll end up with bare metal with spring (upper left side of figure 9). Fig. 9 - Metal with spring and prying spring As the fix itself you'll need to pry the spring little bit. Lay the metal piece flat, hold it as flat possible with tweezers and pry the spring up just a little bit. There is very little strength required, just fraction of a millimeter should be enough. Clean the contacts on the metal with alcohol, do the same with pins on the base of the switch. Now for the tricky part: you have to put it back together. See figure 10 in full resolution for more details. There are two grooves on the two metal pins on the base of the switch (numbered 1 and 2 on the figure 10). These grooves are corresponding with cutouts on the metal, also numbered 1 and 2. The hammer needs to go between two most right pins. Fig. 10 - grooves on contacts and metal spring detail The easiest way I've found is to place the hammer first, then place the metal into the groove 1. Spring is resting on the middle pin, just above groove number 2. Situation on the top left, top right and bottom right part of figure 11. Fig. 11 - reassembling metal with spring on the switch base Now for seating the spring into its groove. Take the tweezers or small screw driver and push the spring down into its place (rest of figure 11). This is especially tricky move, as you have to push with enough force to push it down, but not enough to over push. If you over do it, you'll have to start over. When you manage to seat the metal properly, try to click it few times so you know, it is working OK. Seated metal is displayed on figure 12. Fig. 12 - properly seated metal spring on the switch base Whole process of opening and fixing the switch is captured on a video. Be sure to turn on HD for best details. 4. Testing and reassembly Close the switch and make sure, you are putting the cover the right way. White pin should not be directly above the spring. Consult your photos for proper orientation. Unfortunately you have to fully reassemble your mouse to do proper testing. Screws are putting the right amount of pressure on the micro switches and without them you could get another faulty clicks. Sometimes sound of the click and force needed to achieve button press can change slightly depending of force used on prying the spring. Try to open it again if you are not satisfied with results. The best way to test success of the fix is in any paint application. Create a blank document, pick any color and create any random shape with the button, you've just fixed. You should get continuous line if the fix is successful. Glue back the rubber feet and enjoy your fixed mouse. View full article

    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.

  24. The problem Double-clicking in single click, inability to create continuous line in paint application, difficulty to move camera in RTS, iron sights not sticking in FPS - these are all symptoms of a broken mouse button. Culprit in majority of cases is a component called miniature snap-action switch, or micro switch. This switch contains three leads and a metal with little spring. This metal is jumping between two contacts thanks to the spring and bridging connection between contacts. This spring can become tired so it isn't providing pressure necessary to maintain connection. With combination of dirt (dust) and oxidation on the contact areas, it is a perfect recipe for unstable connection and unwanted double clicks. Fig. 1 - types of micro switches Tools and tips You will need: screw driver (type depends on your mouse model, Phillips and flat head should be enough tweezers safety pin, nail scissors or something pointy contacts cleaner or rubbing alcohol any type of glue camera (cellphone will suffice) little bit of time Tips: Make several photos of each step, it will help you tremendously in reassembly. Don't use much force, there can be hidden screws or latches and you will break something if you are not careful. Disconnect your mouse from computer and pull out batteries first. Take your time, you do not have be finished in ten minutes. Every photo in this guide is in high resolution, visit gallery for additional details. And as usual, PCGamingWiki is not responsible for any damages caused by following this guide. 1. Mouse disassemble This step is unfortunately rather vague, because of each mouse having vastly different design. Be extra careful and look for hidden latches and screws when pulling parts apart. First of all you have to find screws on your mouse. Usual places are under rubber feet, in battery compartment and under stickers. Consult Google with a name of your mouse and word "disassemble". Fig. 2 - possible screw locations After getting rid of all the screws, upper part of the mouse should come apart. Now it is a good time to clean any oil and dirt from many crevices in the upper cover with rubbing alcohol or soap water (in case upper cover does not contain any electronics). Let it dry thoroughly. Example of mouse insides are displayed on figure 3. Fig. 3 - Logitech MX700 without cover Now look for micro switches that needs fixing. You have to have clear access to them in order to properly fix them so additional disassemble could be required. Usually there are few screws, that holds everything to the plastic base, internal connectors, scroll wheel, that can be easily put away etc. In some cases there can be hard connection between boards that cannot be non destructively disassembled. Again take a lot of photos during your work for future reference. For example in figure 3, Logitech MX700 is very complicated mouse with three layers of PCB's, two of which has soldered hard connection (4 pins directly above scroll wheel and on the left of D-3 component) and soldered flat cable between two other (upper right corner, white cable). There are five fixable switches on this mouse and three unfixable. Vast majority of manufacturers are using Omron type switches for main buttons (see figure 1 and 4). There is a possibility of finding smaller, four pin surface mounted switches, that cannot be opened and repaired without soldering. These can be also found in Xbox 360 controller. Fig. 4 - Omron type micro switch 3. Opening the micro switch So you have located faulty switch and ensured enough access to it. Opening it is fairly straight forward. There are usually two latches, that has to be lifted separately (figure 5). Some manufacturers has these latches on the long sides of the switch (figure 1). Fig. 5 - location of latches on the Omron micro switch Insert your open safety pin or point of scissors under the latch to unlock it and lift one side of the switch cover slightly (figure 6). Do not try to lift whole cover up just yet, you'll break the second latch. Fig. 6 - one latch unlocked and cover slightly lifted Do the same on the other side of the switch so you'll get situation displayed on figure 7. Rotate the mouse (or part with the switch) so the white pin on the top of the switch is pointing down. Fig. 7 - both latches unlocked and both sides of cover slightly lifted Now you can pull cover away from the base. The white pin is loose in the cover and can be easily lost if not handled upside down. At the end, you'll end up with situation displayed in figure 8. Fig. 8 - uncovered switch and detail of the white pin 4. Metal spring fun You can see insides of the switch. The part, that needs fixing, is the long metal with spring in the middle and It needs to come of the rest of the switch. This is another not very difficult task, lay the switch flat, as shown on figure 8, hold the part without the spring with two fingers and twist the metal to the side. It should go fairly easily and you'll end up with bare metal with spring (upper left side of figure 9). Fig. 9 - Metal with spring and prying spring As the fix itself you'll need to pry the spring little bit. Lay the metal piece flat, hold it as flat possible with tweezers and pry the spring up just a little bit. There is very little strength required, just fraction of a millimeter should be enough. Clean the contacts on the metal with alcohol, do the same with pins on the base of the switch. Now for the tricky part: you have to put it back together. See figure 10 in full resolution for more details. There are two grooves on the two metal pins on the base of the switch (numbered 1 and 2 on the figure 10). These grooves are corresponding with cutouts on the metal, also numbered 1 and 2. The hammer needs to go between two most right pins. Fig. 10 - grooves on contacts and metal spring detail The easiest way I've found is to place the hammer first, then place the metal into the groove 1. Spring is resting on the middle pin, just above groove number 2. Situation on the top left, top right and bottom right part of figure 11. Fig. 11 - reassembling metal with spring on the switch base Now for seating the spring into its groove. Take the tweezers or small screw driver and push the spring down into its place (rest of figure 11). This is especially tricky move, as you have to push with enough force to push it down, but not enough to over push. If you over do it, you'll have to start over. When you manage to seat the metal properly, try to click it few times so you know, it is working OK. Seated metal is displayed on figure 12. Fig. 12 - properly seated metal spring on the switch base Whole process of opening and fixing the switch is captured on a video. Be sure to turn on HD for best details. 4. Testing and reassembly Close the switch and make sure, you are putting the cover the right way. White pin should not be directly above the spring. Consult your photos for proper orientation. Unfortunately you have to fully reassemble your mouse to do proper testing. Screws are putting the right amount of pressure on the micro switches and without them you could get another faulty clicks. Sometimes sound of the click and force needed to achieve button press can change slightly depending of force used on prying the spring. Try to open it again if you are not satisfied with results. The best way to test success of the fix is in any paint application. Create a blank document, pick any color and create any random shape with the button, you've just fixed. You should get continuous line if the fix is successful. Glue back the rubber feet and enjoy your fixed mouse.
