Brandon,Did you have any other applications open when you started Fly II? I have gotten similar directx error messages when I had certain other applications open but minimized so I didn't realize it. Closing them and restarting cured the problem.

Dean:No, when I open fly I do not have any other applications open.Could it be however that it is happening because I installed Fly!2 after installing DirectX 9?Brandon

Brandon,I wouldn't think so. Is this a new installation of Fly? Have you followed the installation and updating instructions for Fly2 anchored at the top of the forum? What vidio card and drivers are you using? You might also try using the non-T&L choice for DX8 at the Fly video setup screen and see if that helps. I see there is another thread going on this very topic so you might follow it also.
