Dead Space XBOX Controller/60fps Fixes
There is a very big deadzone in this game, and that makes it tricky finely aim with a xbox controller

1. Download ...

2. Unpack and run the Durazno.exe and close it to create a config.

3. Open Durazno.ini with a text editor and change AntiDeadzone=0 to AntiDeadzone=40 on line 11 and save.

4. Copy Durazno.ini and xinput1_3.dll to the same place as the Dead Space executable. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dead Space

To get 60fps turn off vsync in the game options, then force vsync on in your graphics card setting, if that does not work then the D3DOverrider supplied with RivaTuner should, that works on AMD cards just fine... (the 60 fps works for Dead Space 2 also)

After all that the game runs sweet.

Thx, kind of a accident, after using the same utility to flip right stick y-axis in ghost recon future soldier I noticed a antideadzone setting and thought 'hey' this might work with dead space, you know its a shame the devs never sorted this game out properly.

DUDE!!! You are THE MAN!! Aiming is now as accurate as possible! I can now look around with complete control.

There is a newer version of durazno (r129), check the left hand side of this page ...

This game deserves a proper fix from the devs, just a couple of little tweaks is all its needs.

Time for a dead space marathon soon :)

Excellent! After the blank joypad.txt fix to correct spinning and this fix to correct he deadzone my wireless 360 controller works perfect for DS. Thanks again for this.

Thank you very much for this fix! Playing Dead Space is very enjoyable now.

However, for me at least, setting the Vsync off alone fixed the problem.

It fixed my x-axis, but not y ? it's playable now at least, just a little annoying to look up/down.

Increasing antideadzone might help but do it too much the movement will glitch out and issac will keep moving on his own.

The other way of fixing this is to turn off vsync but this will put stress on your gfx card, syncing the game to 120fps would be ideal if you have a monitor that can do that.

thanks for the tip, so just adding these files is all, no need to run the durazno prog each time?
