Re: Downgrading Dx Versions

The only time I've seen it be useful is for some Aureal Vortex 2 VXD-based sound drivers (> version 2015) that can BSOD the system on any DirectX after 7.0a for some reason after playing a game. However that alone makes me prefer not to run a newer DirectX than necessary for the games and hardware. …

Re: Matrox Mystique 220 crash

These cards are actually somewhat problematic. There was some controversy back then with video drivers doing evil things with the PCI bus in order to win benchmarks. Matrox was partaking in this.

Keep in mind that Nvidia was aggressively tweaking their driver at the time to get more speed at reduced quality, and 3DMark is their first stop because it sells cards. Trying to beat Radeon 9800 with Geforce FX must have been stressful over at Nvidia HQ.

Re: Multi-Monitor support for Supreme Commander

I play lots of Forged Alliance. If I remember right, there's another approach to this with the game. You can set it to windowed, stretch it across the monitors, and then run split screen (Home key). You might prefer windowed mode anyway since you can easily do other things in Windows while playing. …
