I'm running a 32mb nvidia tnt with the latest drivers, and the latest version of directx. This is supported by a 1.3 gig athlon processor and 512mb RAM, and my operationg system is windows ME. The problem i am having is with games based on the unreal 2 engine. the gameplay is smooth (albeit in a low resoloution) untill I perform certain actions i.e. fire a machine gun. at this point the game crashes, telling me I have triggered a bug in directx 8.1. as I am running V.9 This is strange. I would be very greatful to any help.
dx9 is backwards compatable so you should have no trouble playing dx8 or even dx7 games. I sometimes get a stutter in the sound during gunfire I think it because I only have onboard sound and when the cpu comes under pressure sound suffers.
