View Full Version : DirectX 8.2 Problems
11-09-2002, 02:57 AM
When CFS3 is downloaded, it will upgrade DirectX to 8.2, which is about twice as fast as 8.1. When it upgrades your system, it somehow shuts down DirectX 3D. to correct this go to Dxdiag, just put this in run line, click, in Dxdiag, click on the display tab, then click on 3D, this will activate, your 3D&DirectX8.2. The Grafics in CFS3 is fantastic, I have all the sliders to 4, with my XP-1800 AMD Windows98se, G-Force2 system.

I tried that. Your talking about the tab that enables "direct 3d acceleration" right? Mine already was enabled but just to be sure I dissabled it and reanabled it but it made no difference. I dont know how your running sliders on 4. I have an 1700xp AMD, 256mb ddr, windows 2000, and g-force 2 w/32mb and I can turn the sliders over 2 or the FPS drop to nill. I'm taking it back right now. Maby I'll buy it a year from now. I'm going to exchange it for IL-2. I'm really dissapointed with CFS3, as I really enjoyed CFS1 and 2.

test your 3D, it will first test DirectX 7.0. then test 8.2, and if you see nothing it then is diabled. I only pressed the 3D once
