anyone tried this directx 10 emulation for win xp?
i tried it with gears of war... copied the *.dlll files to system32 but when i run gears it shows the typical "error application" message and shuts down. i erase the copied libraries and the game runs ok again. so i guess my question is if this "alky project" runs ok or i it can be fixed...
I remember reading somewhere that the Alky project died. Its a complete waste of time because people will eventually have to shift to Vista/Windows 7 and DirectX 10.
You have more chance of seeing Wine go on to emulate DirectX 10 (since they already emulate DirectX 9.0) under Linux. However I gather the DirectX 10.0 functions are heavily integrated into the Vista kernel so its going to take quite a while if its even possible... Evil!!
Face it, DirectX 10 is basically available only under Vista or Windows 7. However, DirectX 10 doesn't always mean looks better. Sometimes the effects are minimal and not completely discernible by the human eye.
