Are you using DX9 or DX10?

Recommended Posts

Just curious, are most flight simmers flying DX9 or DX10. Has there been a recent poll on this? I know there have been recent posts on DX9 and DX10, but I have never seen any poles of the use of one verses the other.

 

My system appears to be running good enough in DX9 that I am somewhat hesitant to go thru the whole 10 yards to convert to DX10 -- it looks like a fairly cumbersome process.

 

I expect this might be moved to the DX10 forum, but hope not, because it will get more exposure in the FSX forum as this post pertains to both DX9 and DX10.

well my system does not work with DX9, its unstable and full of flickering.

so i have no choice, i switch DX10, and i am good with :)

 

my system is enough to run DX9 normally (gtx 660, i5 3570k 4.5ghz) but i think i have a software issue ... it used to work a few months ago ... I tried to fix several times then i discovered DX10 :)

I've tried all the DX10 fixes and tweaks, but then, in the end, the performance in DX9 is no worse, and, if anything, more consistent. So I'm staying with DX9.

 

The graphics looks better in DX9 to be honest, but I think that may because the tweaks, whilst managing to fix most default graphics issues with DX10, don't really cover all add-on sceneries, and also (not that it matters a great deal to me as I hardly ever look at it), in DX10 mode my own aircraft is all white, completely textureless!

I'm still stuck with DX9, mainly because of FlyTampa doesn't offer DX10 support(or did I miss something?). I wouldn't really bother about that, because I don't fly to most of their airports at night, but Kai Tak has a very special atmosphere at night, and I'd really enjoy it not half as much in the "pseudo-DX10 mode" with only default apron and runway textures.

I hate to change to 10 when 9 has never been better. Recent upgrades, as in OC to 4.0, SSD, and GTX 660ti, along with Word Not Allowed's instructions, have me very pleased ATM.

DX9. Works like a charm. Compatible with everything I need too. I see no need at all to switch to DX10. Never change a winning team.

DX9 - I've done the whole DX10 experience and although their are some advantages their are still many inconsistencies that remain and take away from the immersion for me to switch.

DX10 for sure!

 

Reasons for DX10:

25% frame rate improvement using a standardized test flight

NO OOM problems

 

Problems with DX10:

Had to turn off Land Detail Textures to eliminate shimmering but I see no difference in visual difference with it off when compared to a DX9 flight with it on

A few shareware aircraft don't work 100% in DX10

 

Implementation:

Once I took the advice of Paul J and followed his and others instructions literally and precisely - I had no problem with the DX implementation

DX9 and DX10 work fine on my current build but I'm using DX9 currently because the AA seems to work better. The water shader fix for DX10 is nice but I'm still preferring Bojotes DX9 shader 3 water fix. Also I'm working on a new DX11 dll that (if I can get it to work) will translate FSX DX9 / DX10 calls to the DX11 API. My thought is that there could be a performance gain to using the DX11 engine over DX9 / DX10 but any new features would not be supported of course. Cheers jja
