I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't seem to find it in search, I'm looking for a replacement for Direct Input since it is deprecated. I need it to be able to receive inputs from the mouse, keyboard, gamepad and any other USB input devices you can think of. Also Cross platform is a plus.

This should help. You can do it all with Win32 messages.

Edit: "Removed pointless 'This should help:'" XD

For mouse and keyboard, the regular old Win32 API is what you should use. For gamepads, I think XInput has replaced DInput (but that might only be for Xbox 360 controllers).
