I am using the most recent version of DSfix (2.4), and although the game launches just fine with the DSfix file, it does not Launch when I add the DINPUT8.dll file to my Data folder. I am using the Steam Works version of Dark Souls [-dsptde-2.0-]. As for the settings I have for DSfix, the only things I changed were these two things shown below.

# Enable and set the strength of the SSAO effect (all 3 settings have the same performance impact!)
# 0 = off
# 1 = low
# 2 = medium
# 3 = high
ssaoStrength 3

# Set SSAO scale
# 1 = high quality (default)
# 2 = lower quality, lower impact on performance
# 3 = lowest quality, lowest impact on performance
ssaoScale 1

# enables texture override
# textures in "dsfix\tex_override\[hash].png" will replace the corresponding originals
# will cause a small slowdown during texture loading!
enables TextureOverride 1

All the other settings have not been touched, and are set to the defaults. I heard turning off Anti-Aliasing in the In-Game PC Settings helps, so I did that as well. I also heard unplugging your controller helps before Launching the game helps as well. Nothing seems to be working though. I have already tried Reinstalling the game twice, also reinstalled DSfix. I am at a loss at what else I can do to solve this issue. If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it.
