    I thought DX 9 wasnt supposed to be out until march sometime, so how come everyones started d/l it. I tried but it fooked my system couldnt even get to Windows.
    I generally dont get the situation at all :confused:

    I heard m$ released it so I dled it and dled the dx9 drivers for my video card as well...

    Been using DirectX9 since its first release and am using the final version here now, no problems. Directx 9.1 is also on the agenda too.

    Dx9...issue

    My BF1942 started to act up on me after I installed Dx9..
    I think I will stick to Dx8.1 until Dx9.1 is released.....hopefully that will fix it...

    I can see a trend here, everytime MS has released a Dx version the X.0 has always been "not so good", while the X.1 has fixed it all..so why release a X.0 version at all, why not wait until they have come to terms with the bugs and just release the X.1 version?..:rolleyes: I can wait until then..no stress :cool:

    And I am still waiting for the european 1.2 patch to be released..weird..I live in the country where the game is created and soooo slow with the updated patch for it....:huh:

    Cheers!
