Thanks for the reply, but to be on the safe side could anyone else tell me that they've seen improvements when installing directx 8a. I thought I saw a post that directx8 caused problems with the emu.

It doesn't tend to create problems with the emu proper, but be *absolutely certain* you have the newest drivers available for your various piece of hardware. Quite a few old drivers fail horribly when used in conjunction with DX8.

Depend on what your VGA and OS using???
1.Go to your brand website
2.Go to driver section(Support,Download or anything)
3.Choose your classs and OS
4.Download them
5.unzipped and read their instruction how to install
Note : Each brand have their own way to install.............
For Example : Matrox brand just double click at file it will atomatic install...................

enigma: OS stands for Operating System

And VGA, although i don't know what it stands for, i know it has to do with your video card, mine's SVGA for exemple

It depend on your develop brand will release new driver or not...............not depend on your directx....................
Anyway you should to always check their website look it have new driver or not becuase new driver make your video card work better than old driver

Actually it stands for "Video Graphics (Array/Adapter)." It's named as it is because prior standards were CGA (Color Graphics Array) and MGA (Monochrome Graphics Array).

old hardware drivers(for video cards, and sound cards) didn't have support for directx8a so problems arose.... Directx8a is relatively new and the hardware manufacturers needed time to create drivers with support and compatibility with it...... So the best thing to do if you want to use directx8a is to update your audio\video drivers to current ones........ I have been using directx8a ever since it came out....... haven't had a problem yet with emus or anything...... Of course I updated all my drivers for my system as well though......
