Now with Factions preview out for about 4 or 5 days it seems like there's more contrast and better textures than a couple week ago but not quite sure. Just wondered if I have to wait to buy Factions in April to get the graphics enhancements of Dx9.

Aaah nevermind, pffft, EDIT - I see now it says Dx9 in my Advanced Graphics section
No new effects/shaders in Prophecies, just an updated (and according to some, myself included) slightly smoother rendering with the DX9 rendering. I get a lot less pop in and distance draw is better.
