MGS2 Background support for DirectInput Controllers

This patch allows DirectInput gamepads to continue to work when MGS2 is not the focused window. It works by modifying which DI cooperative level the game requests (specifically, by removing DISCL_FOREGROUND and adding DISCL_BACKGROUND).

This modification is also provided by the ASI plugin, in its "DirectInput Background Support" module.

Method 1: Patch with the web patcher

Method 2: Patch with Floating IPS (or another IPS patcher)
