hey everyone, i recently bought FarCry 2 and really wanted to play it, unfortunately when i installed it and ran the game it would crash before opening. this also started happening to Bioshock a while back. i have tried many different things to get the games working, but i remembered that Bioshock stopped working about the same time as when i installed DirectX10 for XP. something that i now realize is the source of all my problems. unfortunately DX cannot be downgraded (as far as i know) but i'm not too sure. i have herd about ways to uninstall DX10. all i want is to get rid of DX10 and get DX9 back so i can play my games again. After thought: there are some programs out there that apparently get rid of DirectX but i was worried about the health of my system. any help would be greatly appreciated. i dont want to jump into anything without asking for help first.
