View Full Version : Has anybody tried running G2 using DX-7a?

Is DX-8 absolutely required? Both my GeForce cards fail the DX Diagnostic DirectDraw full screen bouncing square test using DX-8 but work fine using DX-7a

Yup, DX8 is absolutely required.
We've had nothing but good luck using the GeForce cards. Any more information you want to give about your problem?
reminder: Drivers, etc should be up to date.

I don't seem to have a problem in any of my games including RfG2!
I've use both the GeForce SDR and GeForce2 MX with drivers up to and including 6.49 and they both fail the DD test in DX-8.

Are you sure the test actually fails? The full screen test seems to last only a quick second. As long as it tells you no problems found, theres probably nothing wrong. Are you using the Nvidia Detonator drivers? It's also probably not a great idea to keep switching versions of DirectX.

And, yes I've tried the latest Detonator drivers and beyond. I haven't tried any of the 7.xx series which are supposed to be DX-8 specific.
