actually somebody at MARP was clearly using something with rewind capability (or 'load old state and resume replay) at one point, and another some kind of slowdown / re-recording technique (so speed and timestamps reported correctly) as they were weaving through bullet patterns on a shooter basically moving out the way at the last frame and it was obvious from anybody who had played the game that they had 0 knowledge of the patterns and surviving a few million last second dodges isn't really realistic, nor were the single frame direction changes etc (nobody does single frame direction taps over the course of many frames by hand, it basically isn't even possible)
also macro key and autofire stuff, although that's not as much use in DK
but yes, people have cheated with inps before, I'm not sure said builds are public, but it has been done.
