Post subject:  Direct X pro or anti

Who here supports the idea that games should only support the latest directx version and not be reverse compatible? (meaning that games will only work with the latest hardware and not last year's or the last two year's)

It shouldn't really matter because if you have old games that support DirectX 3.0 and you have 9.0, you should have the option to load it or not.

Also, I didn't vote because none of them really support my answer.

no, but what i meant was, do you want the newer games based on the latest dx driver to support the older cards that are limited to the older drivers? certain game like BF2 are fully dx9, because of that, people with dx7/8 cards have lvery bad palyability or cant play at all. Eventually dx10 will be replacing dx9, and that means either we spend more money on hardware, in which microsoft gets more money, or we miss out on all the great games that dont support the older drivers.

I want reverse compatability, I have an oooold RPG game (comes free with a CD drive from '97, it's that old) that can do DX 3 or 4 but when I put DX 9 for splintercell on it, it didn't recodnize it AT ALL!

had to uninstall DX and reinstall the game. but now I"m gettin a computer witha pentium 3 (I think) processor from my dad's work for literally, $1 CANADIAN! that's like 80 cents US.
but I"m canadian so it's a buck.

another ET computer MUAHAHAHA!

P.S. I"m also mad about not gettin a gaming laptop. good g-card, processor and everything. oh well...

yup, who wouldnt get mad if they got an expensive pc, but its not worth anything since it cant do much. Then there are these great games and these 2 year old hardware are rendered useless almost a year after they were retailed. capitalism is scum, its only money to them.
