    "Didn't Notice Any Difference"

    August 22, 2004  |  

    Version: Microsoft DirectX Drivers Redistributable 9.0c

    Summary

    I have 2 systems running exactly the same hardware I have a PNY GeForce FX 5200 128 AGP Card. And I play C&C Generals & Zero Hour alot. I tested it on 1 of my systems & played Zero Hour for playing 30 minitues I didn't notice anything different. No performance boost nothing it's worthless downloading to be honest. And it took ages to get it out of my system so I could go back to 9.0b. Stick with 9.0b cause like I said it's worthless.

    "Another fine Microsoft Beta"

    August 16, 2004  |  

    Version: Microsoft DirectX Drivers Redistributable 9.0c

    Summary

    I have a 6 computer lan in my home. All pcs are identical. I loaded 9.0c to 2 of them and lost playability in MOHAA, UT2K4, C&C Generals & Zero Hour. Constantly locks up. Took 45 minutes to reload my Ghost images, then the rest of the weekend reloading games.

    "Permenant hardware damage"

    August 15, 2004  |  

    Version: Microsoft DirectX Drivers Redistributable 9.0c

    Summary

    I'm not sure if it was DirectX 9.0c that crashed my computer or not. I think my Nvidia GeForceFX graphics card is damaged. It always freezes and crashes. I erased my computer and installed XP fresh. The problem still happens, that is why I think its hardware. With DirectX 9.0b it freezes and crashes sometimes, but will unfreeze after a minute sometimes. With DirectX 9.0c it crashes every time. When its crashing the screen is diaganol black and white lines with some colors around. I have to restart the computer manually for this. The less common crash gives a blue screen and resarts automatically. It says the graphics card was the cause of the system instablility. So far this has only happened when playing 3D intense games like Doom 3.
    My point is this...
    In the year that I've had this graphics card it has never crashed until i installed DirectX 9.0c. Now I cant play a game without it crashing. This version will crash easier when a fault happens than 9.0b.

    "At last, Microsoft Saved my PC, but not my Mac!"

    August 15, 2004  |  

    Version: Microsoft DirectX Drivers Redistributable 9.0c

    Summary

    I therefore conclude that Microsoft did it's best in creating DirectX. It is great and it is a great thing! For the second thought, I recommend to Microsoft that they will develop DirectX for Mac OS X to increase their popularity in creating Mac products next to Apple.

    ""Very Bad""

    August 2, 2004  |  

    Version: Microsoft DirectX Drivers Redistributable 9.0c

    Summary

    This lame update made 2 of my favorite games screw up... One being Rise Of Nations and the other Unreal Tournament 2004. I never run into this problem before untill now. Microsoft need to get off there behinds and make it easier for users to revert back to old drivers so we can atleast enjoy the PC experience without all this BS..

    "Poor..."

    July 29, 2004  |  

    Version: Microsoft DirectX Drivers Redistributable 9.0c

    Summary

    Microsoft DirectX 9b runtime file was great but the 9c isn't recommended as its totally unstable. Do not download this if you are not using a win xp because it will screw you up without a system restore utility. It has crashed me on a win 2000 / win 98 / win xp pro. Not easy to remove everything in 9c... it left stuff even after a system restore. Try this out for yourselfs if you have everything backed up...
