I have games like Crysis 2, Crysis Warhead, Assassins Creed Brotherhood, Far Cry 2.
I noticed with Far Cry 2 I set the DirectX version to "9". The whole game's lag disappeared, even in high settings. So I googled "How to play games in DirectX9" and came up with these results: You have to run your game's compatibility to Windows XP Service 3 or Service 2 or whatever older compatibility.
Assassin's Creed:Brotherhood>Right click>Properties>Compatibility>Run this program in compatibility mode for:Windows XP Service Pack 3
So I did it to my other games and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood's lag disappeared even with high settings. The same with Crysis Warhead..
My question is, Does switching your game's compatibility really sets it to DirectX9?
I want lag free gaming, that's all I want
More aboutquestion directx9 directx10
By the way my direct x version is 11. Meaning my directX version is updated.. So are my videocard drivers
I don't know whether it does or not, but why do you care, if it kills the lag and that's all you want?
