Hello, I have a very simple question:

Why is there no direct input in ET on Windows? (Linux has it!)

I heard that there was in_mouse -1 in the past but it doesn't exist anymore since the 2.60 patch.
What's the reason? Why etpro doesn't fix it?

Thank you!

There never was DI, neither in ET nor in RtCW.
DI was introduced in Q3 in a patch/ point release. Afterwards they released another patch, because some players wanted to have the windows implementation back (Q3's DI implementation added a 12ms buffer, afaik). That's where in_mouse -1 comes from:
-1 -> windows implementation
1 -> direct input
So, in_mouse -1 only works in Q3.

However you can get direct input by using mforce. For more info take a look at this thread by anir/aion.

(21:33:1Cool (Noobie) In ET and RtCW (and CoD), DirectInput doesn't work, i.e. in_mouse -1 or 1 makes no difference (although some people reported it did for them...?). I had a chat with zinx (from the ETPro team) about it and he confirmed it.
(21:33:20) (Noobie) ^^
(21:33:31) (+som1) sheesh
(21:33:35) (+som1) dont believe anything he says
(21:33:39) (@zinx) Noobie: in_mouse 1 is windows, in_mouse 2 is directinput
(21:33:43) (+som1) if u believe something its diffrent for u
(21:33:45) (@zinx) Noobie: in_mouse -1 is just D&L
(21:33:47) (+som1) ok?Smile
(21:33:53) (@[av]bani) in_mouse 2 doesnt work
(21:33:55) (@[NW]reyalP) erm, in_mouse 2 got killed in beta didn't it /
(21:34:02) (@[NW]reyalP) 2.6 beta, that is
(21:34:0Cool (@[av]bani) we tried to get DI working but win32 is too buggy

(21:34:0Cool (+som1) HEY ITS ABOUT UR MIND
(21:34:09) (@zinx) probably
(21:34:16) (@[av]bani) so it got killed
(21:34:1Cool (+som1) if you believe something is diffrent, it will feel diffrent
(21:34:20) (@zinx) \o/
(21:34:21) (@[av]bani) prolly same reason id killed it
