    Not sure if DSFix even has a proxy function like that.

    DInput8.dll or DirectInput8 is a core DirectX file that is used by Windows and this file you place in the game directory basically gets loaded when the game requests this .dll, as such it works like a injector or "hook" to the full DInput8.dll file in the Windows folder.

    If DSFix does have a proxy functionality then it should be in it's ini file and it should work such as you rename the other .dll and then add that file name to the ini which should result in the game loading both.

    But like I said I don't think DSFix has that functionality but I could be wrong. :)

    Try x360ce, check the community page there's a couple of recent threads that solve all issues with that for this patched version.

    Change the filename of your dinput8.dll to myjoystick.dll

    Then unzip dsfix2.3 to darksouls\DATA folder.

    Then edit dsfix.ini: (line 217)

    Code:
    # Dinput dll chaining
    # if you want to use another dinput8.dll wrapper together
    # with DSfix, rename it (e.g. "dinputwrapper.dll") and put the new name here
    dinput8dllWrapper myjoystick.dll
    Just want to ask what pc joystick requires your specific dll file? Does the game not detect it when you launch? I have a 360 gamepad and I had to disable HID-compliant game controller in device manager for the game to recognize it.

    NOTE: If you use the FPS fix, and it crashes on start, you need to rename or delete GameOverlayRenderer.dll in the steam directory even if you have overlay disabled.

    No, no...

    You have to keep dinput8.dll from dsfix as is.

    You change your dinput8.dll for your joystick to myjoystick.dll

    So, delete every 'fix' from your Dark Souls. Then add your joystick (dinput8.dll) > change this filename to myjoystick.dll

    Then unzip dsfix2.3. Edit dsfix.ini to point to myjoystick.dll. DO NOT RENAME DINPUT8.DLL that comes with dsfix2.3.

    Again, DSFIX2.3 > you must keep every filename as is.

    Also, if you have a generic xinput joystick, can you check your device manager if you have any HID-compliant game-controller? If so, DISABLE these, then the game should recognize the gamepad without your special file.

    Meh, I probably will still try out the free "upgrades" added to the dx9 version, but I'm not going to pay full price again for the game. If I look at the trailer it doesn't really look that much different from what I have now on PC, so I'll bet the "DX11" upgrades are some particle effects and that's it. The "next-gen" part is probably mostly that the game looks on consoles as it did on pc's a year ago....

    Ah well, the game is still great (even though DS1 is better in many respects). The biggest plus would be that they finally fix the 60fps bugs that haunts Dark Souls 2; they really didn't think that through..... But they probably won't....
