Hi Michael...

Thanks for your quick reply.
I think its very important to put Minimum hardware recommendation on the MoI Resource Page or Main Page.

This will very helpful for who want to buy new machine for MoI.

Regards,
Anis

you can type dxdiag at the run command, then look at the display tab. It will tell you about your video card and you can run a test to see if you qualify to run direct3d.

Hi Anis,

> This will very helpful for who want to buy new machine for MoI.

Just a quick note - pretty much any new machine should be able to run MoI.

It would have to be a fairly unusual system for a brand new one not to run MoI.

If you have a much older machine then it may need a video card upgrade... Machines that are older than about 5 years old may not have a 3D-capable card in them.

Any plans to use DriectX10? As I understand from what I read it can increase performance by up to 20-30% compared to DirectX9.

Hi Val, currently I don't really plan on focusing on DirectX 10 anytime too soon - one big problem with it is that it is Vista only, and the majority of people using MoI are currently on XP.

The performance improvements for DX10 are not really like 20-30% totally across the board, it's more in some pretty specific areas which I already took care to avoid running into with MoI's DX9 usage. So I actually would not expect to see any performance gain by using DX10 in MoI's particular case.

There is a bunch of interesting stuff in DX10 for certain special effects, but there is still a lot of stuff shader stuff available in DX9 that I haven't really dug into too much yet.

I think just the DX9 level shaders will keep me occupied for a fair while when I get a chance to work on more of that stuff.
