Well i know how you all hate when people post the same thing in more than one catagory but... I just formatted my hdd and installed dx9c and it wont update my d3d files past dx7, every proggy i run to test dx says i only have d3d7 installed, even the direct x tool that comes w/ n nvidia geforce fx5200, i also have a voodoo 5 5500 mac (flashed to x86) installed, but i havnt yet installed the drivers for it because i like my geforece a lot, and i only wanna play gta 3 right now but everytime i play it it crashes after about 3 mins, things slow down to a halt then i get a ddhelp.? (dll i think) error and then every time i run it after that w/o shutting my pc down it crashes w/o even starting, I'm runnin win 98 se w/ all updates and service packs, should i try to install another ver of dx? or what should, i do, or should i even try starting w/ dx8 and working my way up? well thanks, and sorry about the double post but i waited like a week and something an only 11 people even looked at it so i decided to do this, thanks again for any and all help you make available to me.

Gta probabbly isnt working cos it needs at least dx8.1. try re installing the game and installing dx8.1 at the same time;it should be on the disc.

sorry my friend it doesnt quite work that way, i have instlled several diff versions of dx, and now i am at dx9c but the dx tools i have used only report my D3D version being 7 but i found a work around for it, if i cant get the game to run then i just run the dx diagnostic tool that comes w/ dx and it works great. but thanks anyways.
