DirectX 9.0b is out

vbimport

#1

here’s a link to the redistributable (i don’t know why anyone would want to simply get the runtime).


#2

What are the improvements/changes?


#3

i have no idea, i stumbled upon it while looking for 9.0a to download. the developers of half life 2 recently revealed that nvidia cards would have problems with the current version of DX and half life 2, so hopefully that was fixed, but that’s purely speculation on my part.


#4

Don’t know but a security issue was detected in DirectX which affects all vesions up to 9.0a. Maybe a reason to download this new version. Alternatively you can downoad a patch.

F.P.

SP1a is the same as SP1, except it no longer includes Microsoft’s Java Virtual Machine (some dispute with Sun or something).


#10

It already made two games malfunction here.
I’m trying the redistributable pack now ,and if that fails as wel , it’s time to restore the store point i made.


#11

Star Trek Elite Force II and Will Rock

I’ve just restored an old backup of my harddisk , since the storepoint was to no avail. Still didn’t work on which i examined the VGA card and motherboard.

I’ll let you know if i find the bug.

///edit///

The “bug” seemed an hardware problem. I think i got it covered now. Strangely Star Trek Elite Force II seems a little “shocky” when running in the game , but it was no big issue , still completed the game yesterday :slight_smile:
