Really screwed up my Win2K. BSOD's. Reverted to original state within 5 minutes. These dll's are crapola if you ask me.

Low FPS in w2k?
Poor performance?
Try this:
0.Install DX8 and DX8a
1.Download DX8beta140
2.Unpack for example to c:\temp
3.Copy d3dim700.dll from unpacked DX8beta140 to c:\winnt\system32\dllcache and c:\winnt\system32
4. w2k should try to recover this file
5. press cancel and do not any recovery
6. restart windows
7. try 3dmark2000 (for example high polygon count)
8. try UT with new D3DDrv.dll
9. ))))))))))))

I haven't been able to give this a try yet, but I will soon.

I just have a couple of questions for you. How did you come about this thing? What exactly does it do/why does it work?

Mostly just out of curiousity. I suppose if it really works then I wont care why.

Well, i tried it, and yes. It works.

It doesn't seem to help much on things that are fill rate limited but the Transform and lighting is waay sped up by this.. It's amazing, with the regular d3d dll the 3dmark high polygon thing gets really jerky with lost of lights, but with this.. Smooth as hell.

As far as i can tell it hasn't done a great deal to my ailing UT framerate.

I just tried it too. Yes it works, at least in 3DMark. Things are alot smoother, and the 3DMark score is comparable to Win9x now.

Same here - I used the Generic (speed) profile from RadeonTweaker and got 4662 (default benchmark) with no overclocking and no other tweaks. Next stop: powerstrip!

Will report back...

Definate 3dmark speed increase, but has anyone tried any games? My only d3d T&L game is Giants and cant say to see any difference.

Man I hope this works, can't wait to get off of work to try it! This has been what I've been working on ever since I bought this cards (Win2K perforamce). Since I run a SMP system I need to run Win2K which the drivers for are crap. I orginally bought this card to see if it fixed a problem I was having which turned out to be something else and now I'm stuck with it hehe.. but it's turning out not to be so bad, escpecially if this works

Well, overclocked to 189mhz and got 5150:-)

I need to try some games now. I wonder where the bugs are with this older version?

Gave it a shot I will say this.. the new D3D Renderer in UT now works .. but it's too dark. I did notice a FPS increase with my regular D3D in UT tho

Will have to test some more..

What settings should I try with 3DMark??

Download Radeon Tweaker (check the front page of rage3d) and load the Generic (Speed) profile.

What's the story on this d3d dll anyway?

Is it from another version of the dx8 redist that will be launched, featuring some lower latencies? dx8b, perhaps?

Is it from a release candidate for the directX redist that was pipped to the post by another for some reason..

What murky past lies behind this speed demon dll...?

Is the dllcache another folder in the system32 folder? If it is I don't have it and that well, worries me.

Any thoughts?

You have it - however, it is marked as a hidden directory. Use explorer to navigate there after unselecting all the options concerning hiding system files. Make sure you rename the old one with .bak extension in case you want to revert back.

This .dll came from a beta of dx8.
