Splinter Cell BlackList article: Rinput is supposed to remove negative mouse acceleration. I tested it many times, and can not make it work, are you sure this info is accurate?


Recommended Posts

For this article: Splinter_Cell:_Blacklist Negative_Mouse_Acceleration

I'm testing this using Windows 10 64bits and Splinter Cell BlackList using Steam/Uplay.

I can indeed see the console window from Rinput pop up and say it does attach to the process, but, it does not actually remove the negative mouse acceleration it's still there as soon as you move you mouse faster and is quite obvious. Can any else confirm it doesn't work or work?

It's really sad, cause this is a very fine game that is plagued since day one by negative mouse accel and no fix has never been found.

RAW input doesn't automatically mean that it gets rid of negative acceleration. 

If you properly injected the tool, and the console disappeared after game launch, nothing more should be done.

Section title rewritten.

I can confirm the tool was injected this is my log, and this was using not only the latest version, but also other Github forks, and best result was this:

    RInput injector (v1.31 sequential edition)
    Note: This version has not be tested on your kernel version.
    Retrieving "Blacklist_game.exe" process id.
    Process found (PID: 5524).
    Injecting RInput.dll into remote process...
    Succesfully injected library into process (0x23ac0000).
    Event triggered; the remote thread has been successfully initialized.
    Closing console in: 6s

My point is that RInput does, as a result nothing to fix Negative Mouse Acceleration in this game, unfortunately, so i'm not sure why it's recommended to install it in the Input section of the game, as it does give people false hope that it will fix negative mouse acceleration:

    Mouse Acceleration: Negative Mouse Acceleration. Use RInput.

      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:
      Important: If you currently have NAIOM v1.3.0 or older installed, remove the XInput1_3.dll from the games’s directory first!
      Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\NieRAutomata\". Start the NAIOM-GUI.exe to configure the mod (might require .NET runtime 3.1.0) Start the game as usual, for example directly through Steam Download sources:
      PC Gaming Wiki Nexusmods 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 Compatible with FAR/SpecialK mod (must be configured to not use dinput8.dll) 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 The new aiming mod crosshair is sometimes slightly misaligned 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 Supported Versions
      This mod is designed for the latest version of the game and might not be compatible with older or modified executables!
      Steam (patch 1, including YoRHa Edition)

      TL;DR
      This fix makes Mass Effect use raw mouse input and removes the game's mouse acceleration. It is easy to install and use and does not require any external configuration.
       
      Quick start guide:
      Extract the file dinput8.dll to your main game folder. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mass Effect\Binaries\"
      Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Origin

      Features
      While the mouse controls are pretty responsive, the first Mass Effect suffers from mouse acceleration, which cannot be turned off via the ingame settings or with the usual approaches for other Unreal Engine 3 games. This fix removes the acceleration by acquiring raw mouse input and injecting it directly into the game's input function.
       
      Its features include:
      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 mod is designed for the latest, fully patched versions of the game and might not work when used with older or otherwise modified executables.
      Steam
      Origin
      Retail v1.02

      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)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mass Effect\Binaries\"
      Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or Origin

      Uninstall
      Remove or rename the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game.

      Known Issues
      There are currently no known issues with the mod.
       

      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.

      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.

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

      Ubisoft is still plugging its meaningless, drab and useless Uplay, to make their products feel more like onions than video games. The one time cd key activation that Ubi promised would be the only hoop required to jump HAS to be done through Uplay. It's such a shame there isn't any other way to authenticate a user's install, like within the application or within the launcher directly before it. /dry sarcasm
       
      A side effect of using Uplay means that the Steam overlay won't work for me in game which is a massive shame, I adore the Steam overlay as it negates the need to alt+tab 95% of the time. On the subject of alt+tabbing, Blacklist handles it terribly, forcing the game into windowed and doesn't automatically go back into fullscreen when refocused.
       
      So, if you alt+tab to any degree, you're going to be trudging through the pause menu every 3 minutes so I'm gonna take this moment to show you around!
       


       
      This is the graphics menu which, as you can see, has a surprisingly impressive roster of variables and supported features. But the real problem here is, like Assassin's Creed 3, Ubi have just thrown in all these DirectX11 features (for an Nvidia sponsorship, of course) which have no tangible benefit and just kills performance. Now, where do I get off making such sensationalist claims?
       
      [compimg]http://community.pcgamingwiki.com/uploads/gallery/album_6/med_gallery_255_6_242738.jpg|http://community.pcgamingwiki.com/uploads/gallery/album_6/med_gallery_255_6_541700.jpg|960|540|DX11 Low (minus texture+AF)|DX11 Ultra[/compimg]
       
      In the comparison above, I changed all but two settings, texture quality and anisotropic filtering. The only difference is that with ultra, you get a massive saturation of ambient occlusion (they obviously missed the memo which said you're meant to us AO to add depth and finish off the lighting, not change the entire brightness of a scene). It just goes to show the slap-dash Nvidia-approved checklist approach they took to making the PC version. Not only that but performance is sub-par with lower than expected FPS and personally experienced stuttering.
       
      Continuing with the problems of the graphics options, I've had so many issues trying to get the game to run in DirectX 9 mode. If I select 9 from the menu, it prompts you to restart the game. So after I quit to desktop and relaunch the game, Blacklist boots into DirectX 11. It's like they didn't even test it, the variable for the graphics API can easily be found in a nearby .ini file and the ingame setting does nothing to change it.
       
      [uPDATE: To change to DirectX 9 you have to exit and restart Uplay as well; if you restart the game with Uplay still open the change won't take effect.]
       
      Sigh. Right. We're gonna move on now. Let bygones be bygones, okay?
       


       
      Blacklist does earn itself some brownie points on the input arena, allowing remapping of everything in-game and supports side mouse buttons. Mouse sensitivity is a numbered slider (thumbs up) and allows you to invert third person or first person (for spies vs mercs). Along with the separate inversion for 3rd and 1st person, it also has separate sensitivity sliders. Again, thumbs up.
       
      It even has good controller support, continuing with the separate sliders and inversion options. The preset actually looks really nice, building upon Conviction's fluidity with a controller.
       


       
      Audio seems quite good, with manual speaker setup selection and two sliders. Subtitles are included, just tucked away under a different UI menu. Overall, par for the course, not much to say.
       


       
      Now, I feel like I've been nice to Blacklist for too long. Do we all remember the "no online DRM, just a one time activation" claim made by Ubisoft no so long ago?
       
      "We have listened to feedback, and since June last year our policy for all of PC games is that we only require a one-time online activation when you first install the game," she said.
       
      The Steam version of the game requires Steam to be running. Which sounds kind of stupid when you say it like that but considering the activation is done in Uplay and the overlay doesn't even work, it seems a bit unnecessary. I mean, it's not like Steam doesn't have DRM free games which can be played from anywhere after the initial setup, I just don't see why I have to have it running.
       
      Overall, I can't recommend Blacklist on PC, the Steam discussions page is full of people complaining about one problem or another. I had issues with performance, a lot of people on the Steam forums can't even launch it. 98% of people (slight hyperbole) are having issues and 2% are a-okay and it's so frustrating. It could all be fixed in a couple of patches but I'm not one to endorse gambling. If you really want to play Blacklist, I really recommend saving yourself the trouble and getting it on a console.
       
      A little bit of me died then.
