View Full Version : Uninstalling Direct X (may help improve PJ64 stability)

I was doing some research on the possibilities of uninstalling Direct X. I guess rswedlow (formally Iconoclast) pointed out that the best Directx to run for Project 64 was v8 and not version 9a-c. These possible minor issues may be due to the hardware, service pack, in addition the version of Directx. I conclude this observation because people have reported both outcomes. I for one am running Directx 9c with no noticeable issues. If you are indeed having issues and you cannot understand why, try uninstalling (or updating if you have a lesser version than v8) and installing Directx 8.

You can grab the Uninstaller for Directx 9:

You can grab the directx 8a from here (http://download.microsoft.com/download/win2000pro/Update/8.0a/NT5/EN-US/DX80NTeng.exe).

I did learn, that's exactly why I made this one, ohohohohooowned!:eek:


The last time I brought up Directx involved a very unstable release of Directx 10 for Windows XP, this Directx 8a is an official copy from MS

I don't think stressing a lonely uninstallation process is that important when the DirectX8 reference I linked Mikonokia to obviously solved his problem--thus overwriting side effects of the hack. Clearly if you upgrade processing engines like Flash Player they automatically overwrite the current version?

Hm, I have read that it appears to do that, but nobody has confirmed it actually works.... does it? (anybody)

This link doesn't work for me.

I don't know, but I'm keeping DX10 for Windows Vista to test and inform you all. I'm very sure they should overwrite existing versions; they can't function simulatenously you know that right? There's no reason when I just said it did that for Mikonokia.

Yes, only Directx 9 and 10 can work simultaneously.

but since Directx is a hard system installation I would have assumed that system would have said "nuh ah I dont think so, go get more Mickey Dees and come back when your a later version" hmmm I am interested to know if this actually works and not just "appears" to install over the later version....

I doubt I will be capable of matching Squally, I try sometimes to live up to his level and on the rare occasion have surpassed him. But ultimately he has more stamina than I do. Nice reference to my own quote against me btw. ;)
