Hello.

May it's a very stupid question, but why we should not use Direct Input for fetching keyboard's and mouse signals? The answer: because MS said so is not applicable in current situation. Yeah, good for MS, but they didn't explain why, as far as I know. Here is the link to official msdn tutorial about Direct Input http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee416842(v=vs.85).aspx

And here is the citation: The use of DirectInput for keyboard and mouse input is not recommended. You should use Windows messages instead.

Thank you for your answers in advance Posted Image
