View Full Version : Microsoft Sidewinder Mouse causing crash..

Just a heads up! :-)
I recently purchased a Microsoft Sidewinder Gaming Mouse and Kane and Lynch and since plugging it in the game has constantly been crashing either at the menu or a minute into any of the levels.
The error is "dinput8.dll" related in the crash dialog.
I've tried uninstalling the IPoint software, replacing the "dinput8.dll" and reinstalling the latest DirectX, unplugging my gamepad and removing any old hardware ID's in Device Manager but the error keeps occurring.
I plugged in my old Logitech MX518 mouse and was merrily playing again with no problems.

Enjoying the game BTW..

Some things just don't like this game/ windows live.

Glad you are enjoying this game. Maybe the patch'll fix it.

See you on the uhh mall, soldier. . . . er mercenary
