DirectX 8 (or, "the search engine keeps crashing")

Recommended Posts

I want to update my copy of Fighting Steel to the current version number, but it requires DX8. Has anybody installed it? Any issues/bugaboos to watch for?

I'm running a P3 700, 128MB, Win98 2 Ed (v 4.10.2222a) Matrox G400, SBLive Value.

TIA (esp to Schrullenhaft who will probably respond "first with the most")

As others have pointed out, CM should work fine with DirectX 8.0/8.0a. I don't know if you would want to try some newer Matrox drivers or not while you're at it (they may fix some problems or cause others).

The latest is a BETA v. 6.71.11 for Win98SE (and there's some 6.51.012 non-BETA drivers listed just below it):
