Directx 9.0x upgrade problems

  1. Hey everyone.

    I'm new to the forum and was wondering if anyone could help out.

    My video display properties say I'm running Directx 8.1, but when I attempt to upgrade to 9.0x, the installation appears to have worked, but display properties still say 8.1

    I tried updating my drivers to 77.77, but this did not help either. Far Cry is running all screwed up (not as a result of the driver upgrade) where textures appear as bright white and there are no signs of shaddows. Low quality mode is the only way it looks ok, but looks ****ty becasue it's low quality. I don't think it's a vcard problem because Doom3 runs great.

    Any help would be appriciated.

    Nevermind, I upgraded to Far Cry 1.3 and that solved the problem. I don't know what's up with this DirectX nonsense, but the game is running great. I've got the resolution set to 1600 x 1200 and all the adv video settings as high as they can go (except AA and AF) and the game runs smooth as hell. I didn't realize what a bargan this video card is.
