Hey everyone. I was tooling around with some settings in my HL2 advanced display options and I noticed something wierd. There are to fields that offer DX info at the bottom of the advanced options screen. One displays the status for DX HARDWARE level and the other is DX SOFTWARE level. Ojn my system the HARDWARE is locked at DX 8.1 and the SOFTWARE is 9.0. I have a MSI RADEON 9800 PRO and was quite sure that it is a DX 9.0 card. Does anybody else have the same uh humm ISSUE? I just noticed it now so I cant really say that its a problem. If you have how did you fix it?

I have that thing too but i dont think it really means anything because i have direct x 9.0c could be a bug if u want to check if u have direct x 9.0b or 9.0c or just 9.0 go to run in the start menu and put in dxdiag and click ok that thing tells u ur system info and wut version u got u can get a updated one at microsoft.com
