Windows XP has Direct X 9, Vista has DX 10 and Windows 7 has DX 11 built in. What game and what OS are you using?
It's a big fish game ,Island Tribe. I'm running windows 7 home premium and didn't realise it was already in the computer. I recently had a tower put together so I coud run my computer through my amplifier and projector. Since I've started using 7 I've encounted a few problems.
I've tried to run this game as - administrator, change the resolution, make it compatible to other systems, download it with the firewalls off. I guess it's a dud version. thanks for your input
