Default Re: Help With Dx9

If your using nVIDIA hardware then try here.

Know your Graphics Hardware and download the latest driver. DX9 should come with it.

it wouldnt say directx9 not found it would say something like directx93d.dll not found or some other directx9 .dll file.
if it won't install then not much you can do to make the game run.

still seems to me to be a driver problem or a graphics card/driver problem if your toolbar is missing and your background is either gone or discoloured.
your graphics card might be abit to old to run this game even with the latest drivers/direct x9 version.

have you tried Nvidia's website? Also go into your run bar (in start button) and type "dxdiag" without quotes into the space and click run. go into your DLL files and see if there are any errors. also check to see all the video tests are working properly.
