sethro is still being judged by the masses


Default directx 9 features dont work!!!!

ok, i need help. iv'e successfully installed directx 9. checked with the diagnostic tool that everything is ok. However, if I try to run an ATI dx9 demo or 3ds max with dx9 enabled i get a message telling me that my card doesnt support pixel or vertex shaders 2.0. Iv'e tried a clean install of the latest ATI drivers (cleaned reg, inf etc) but it made no difference. my card is a sapphire 9700 pro. this is really driving me mad. help!!

Doh, i'm an idiot (but i'm blaming ATI). i hadn't got the latest drivers at all. thats because if you go to ATI.com and link to the drivers page you don't actually get the latest drivers but the .25's. anyway, it's working now. one i downloaded from the driver link on the dx9 demo page everything is sweet.
