Those having problems, have you installed DirectX 8? I downloaded it (its actually out now) and I have had increased peformance in all games.

Gotta be worth a try eh?

From what I've read, it seems more people are having problems with DirectX 8 than with DirectX 7; I have DirectX 7.0a, and have only encountered a few minor bugs, which I easily go around...

Well I am using DX8 and I have had absolutely no problems with EMI or any other games for that matter. I am also using Windows ME though???

Well, that's the thing about PCs... Everyone's system specs are different, so what works perfectly on one system might not work quite right on another. I have to deal with something similar for my job, but on a much smaller scale.

I'm also running Windows ME, though it's been buggy form some other stuff. But I think the best thing to do for those who encounter bugs is to download any available patches from LucasArts' web site, and barring that, contact their Tech Support.

If your not using Internet Explorer, open it up now.

See if you have a "Tools" menu at the top. If so, click on that to see if you have a "Windows Update" option. If so, click on it.

If not, go to this site: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ (using Internet Explorer)

If you see a page that has a link for "Product Updates," click on it, and wait for the page to finish loading.

When the page is done loading, scroll down a bit, and you'll see that one of the checkboxes has the option of installing DirectX 8....

I can't get directx8 to install. Went to microsoft update page and downloaded but during the install process it "fails" before completely installing. Do you know how I solve that?

Most likely your download was corrupted somehow, or Microsoft's download server was down... Try updating again...

Or try downloading it here (http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0-10045-100-3623687.html?tag=st.dl.10001-103-1.lst-7-1.3623687).
