oh duh, EDIT - it says in my advanced graphics the renderer is Dx9. And again I don't have the preview, but I'm glad it at least says Dx9 now.
raystones, make sure that your video options have "post process effects" on. This makes a big difference visually (especially at high resolutions sp.?)
Ahhhhh, wait, I understand where you are coming from...you don't know if this only has an effect on the character selection screen...or the whole game, right? I'm not sure either. I had assumed it was the whole game because that option sure did make the character selection screen much better. Or, am I talking out of my ass?
edit - just realised that you guys are talking about dx9 shader capabilities. I'm wondering, then, what the "post process effects" option is for then?
