Default setting up Direct X ingame

Hi!

I have some problems with setting up the sirect x settings ins the game. For Direct X Hardware setting, I can only choose Direct X 8, while für the Software Setting, Direct X 9 is choosen and I can't change it.
I have read, that for some bugfixing, I should change my Direct X settings to 9, but I just can't, it's not listed.

my graphicscard is Geforce 4 Ti 4400, driver properly isntalled

any solution?

This means that your video card is only capable of using DirectX 8 and it can't handle DirectX 9. Unless you get stuck at the U4 lab like others have been, it shouldn't be an issue. I play on my Geforce in DirectX 8 all the time and have never seen the crashing/getting stuck issue, so you might be okay. If not, our patch Wednesday will definitely remedy the problem.

That's my problem. And since I don't want to skip U4lab02, i'll wait for the patch!

thanks for the answer

If you cannot select DirectX 9, then your card does not fully support the features necessary to run the game in DirectX 9. You can try updating your drivers from NVidia if you haven't already, but to the best of my knowledge, the ti4800 is not a DX9 card.

Just because you can't run in DX9 does not necessarily mean you will crash once you reach u4 02. Play through and see what happens - if it does crash, you can wait for the patch on wednesday, if not - great!
