I would recommend you try upgrading your copy of DirectX.

Not sure. I haven't tried it on XP SP2, but I have on SP3. Is there a reason you aren't running an up-to-date copy of Windows?

I can run BZFlag on XP SP2, but I compiled it myself on that machine.

dinput8.dll is part of DirectX, so reinstalling DirextX seems like the right thing try.

Is this a new install of BzFlag or did it work for a while and then stop?

If it is a new install, try re-downloading and re-installing BZFlag

If it did work but stopped. You could try clearing out the BZFlag cached world files and see if that makes any difference. Still no go, then try removing the bzflag config file

I thought sp3 would automatically get installed because I turned on the automatic updates but it didn't so I put it on myself and it's working now. Thanks for your help.
