View Full Version : DirectX 8.2 question

10-31-02, 10:05 PM
i see that direct x 8.2 is avaiable for download http://www.gamershell.com/news/BDirectX8.2Breleased.shtml
has anyone installed it and had any problems with any of their games or any other glitches? or is it totally safe to update to 8.2?

I've only played two games after installing DX 8.2 (UT2k3 and Need For Speed 6) and there is virtually no difference in comparison to DX 8.1b. As far as I know, only DirectPlay has been updated, maybe that's why...

same here. DX9 Beta 3 gave me a nice performance boost. Only taking them off for official DX9.:D

i installed it, no performance difference, it says 8.2 in dxdiag but in 3d mark 2001 only detects 8.1? ahh well no difference in fps

when i bought cfs3 it installed DX8.2 during installation and i haven't had any problems with it so far, its amost identical to DX8.1.

Oh man, I gained an extra 20fps in Doom 3 with that DX update ;) :D
