Well,in fact I was already runiing a DirectX 8.1 Beta,and I didn't notica any issues.
Now I'm running this one since 5 hours and no troubles in sight(on these 5 hours,I've played around 3 hours).

Yeah - but is there any real reason to upgrade to it from DirectX 8.0? Is it faster, better, etc.?

Frankly, I'm never eager to install updates unless someone else can confirm that it does offer some benefits...

8.1 is mostly a release to support upcoming features in ATi's new chip, although it does sport improvements in other areas.

Please note that 8.1 drops Win95 support..

CDBuRnOuT,
is that win9x support or just win95 support? I have win98(and maybe sp2, whatever comes with IE5.5).
