Question about switching back and forth from DX10 to DX9

Recommended Posts

Just a few questions.  I'm running Steve's Fixer at the moment and I'm in DX10.

I want to do some comparison tests and would like to get back to DX9.

The manual tells you to simply switch your Direct X mode from the fixer.

Just to clarify, I don't need to uninstall the library, right?

 

So before going back to DX9, I'm just going to disable DX10 compatible lights and effects in the fixer, then switch Direct X mode to DX9.  Is this correct?  No need to uninstall the library or do anything else?

 

Also, can I delete my fsx cfg after going back to DX9?  There's a few modifications in my cfg but I want to start with a fresh one for DX9.  Is it safe to delete the cfg after going back to DX9 and let fsx build a new one?

 

Just want to make sure because I don't want things to get messed up when I return to DX10.

 

Thanks.

Your best bet is to Create a folder (somewhere) named DX9 Configs, and then copy the fsx.cfg and export your Inspector/RadeonPro configs to it. Then, after the Fixer uninstall, you can simply swap in the original files. You might also do the same thing for the DX10 configs.

Excellent.  Thank you, Paul.

I don't mind re-doing my NI settings everytime I switch because I know it by heart and only takes a minute.

I won't be uninstalling the fixer.  Sorry I didn't clarify that in my OP.

So just leave the library alone without uninstalling it, right?  And it's safe to delete my cfg after going back to DX9?  I won't be saving my current cfg because the changes I made to it were just for testing purposes.

Yeah - Just uninstall the  libraries, Maurice - you don't need to remove anything. Yep, you can keep or delete the cfg. (it's in the Recycle Bin anyway - right!)

 

All the Best

Thanks Paul.  You've certainly been extremely helpful here with the whole DX9/DX10 thing and I really appreciate all the help you've provided and your extensive knowledge of DX10.

 

Thanks again.

Sorry, getting confused now. The manual says you only need to switch and you say uninstall the libraries? Which is correct?

You do not need to uninstall the libraries. Just hit the switch button in the Fixer. Then replace the fsx.cfg with a your backed up dx9 config or re-configure it for dx9. Then import or reconfigure NI. Then vice versa if your want to switch back to dx10. I have done it several times now.
