This will fix the Mouse Acceleration issue. It will also change the mouse motion to a more raw input-oriented approach. With this, there will be no additional positive-negative mouse accelerations in the gameplay. This file also stops mouse smoothening. If you do want to alter the feedback settings you can do so directly from the in-game menu. This mod also doesn’t affect the game in any manner. If you want to uninstall it all you have to do is go back to C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Mass Effect/Binaries/ and either rename the dinput8.dll file or simply remove it from the folder.
