    DirectX10 Question

    Hello

    I have been looking about on forums and such like and they all been saying that its going to be DirectX10 and only work on Vista as its got DirectX10, is this true?, if so will there be a DirectX9 version for XP which will be included with the game when it comes out.

    Not true. It will be playable on DX9 and DX10 at the same time.

        Someone please sticky this.

        UT3 will run on XP and Vista, DirectX 9 and DirectX 10.

        DirectX 10 requires three things. It needs capable hardware (currently only NVIDIA GeForce 8800), Windows Vista, and a game to run it (UT3 is one of those). Without ALL of these three things, a game will not use DirectX 10.

        UT3 does not require Vista or DirectX 10. It will run on Vista DirectX 9 or XP DirectX 9.

        Vista does not require DirectX 10.

        All DirectX 10 does is handle 3D code more efficiently, thus allowing greater performance.

        DirectX 10 will NEVER be available for XP. It is built in to the new Vista video driver model so tightly that this is impossible. However, some amazing programmers at XtremeSystems.org are working on a free operating system that will be capable of playing DirectX 10.
