I am having problems with running DirectX 8 games on XP...like Max Payne and Operation: Flashpoint... On max payne it says: Display adapter is not compatible with DirectX 8, and Flashpoint says: Cannot create 3D... Games like NFS V, UT, FIFA2002 runs smoothly

When I run Dxdiag and I test Direct3D, it runs smooth when testing dx 7, but when about to start testing dx 8 it fuks up...view the attachment for DX log file...

specs are:
AthlonXP 1500+
Abit KG7 266 mhz mobo
Gainward Geforce 2 mx-400 32mb
512 mb ram
also BIOS is set to 4x AGP
etc. etc.

any help?

hmmm

Did you by chance reinstall dx8 with one of the games? XP uses the dx 8.1 version and if you did then thats might be the problem.

I think I've done that at some point...but that was after I experienced the problems...

any way to reinstall DX 8.1 without reinstalling winXP?

also, tried changing AGP from 4x to 2x in the BIOS without it helping me...

The link to the download site is at www.microsoft.com/directx However, you also might want to check on the newest video drivers and also run dxdiag.exe to check any compability issues between your version of dx8 and the current vid drivers you have.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
