Default Re: How to DX9 to run under DX10 Vista?

Add to the shortcut target: -DX9

Example:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis SP Demo\Bin64\crysis.exe" -DX9

You can see it works by looking at the app title (ALT-Enter to enter/exit fullscreen) if it's DX10 it says DX10 if it's DX9 it doesn't mention. Furthermore you will only be able to access up to "high" on all settings on the options menu, the very high settings are greyed out
