I will just point out that RS comes with dx6 unless I'm mistaken and no one suggests you stay on dx6.0.
The directx drivers are meant to be upwards compatible. In fact there is no official way to uninstall dx8. I installed dx8 when it first came out on the promise it held of better performance.
Please reassure me that mindless abuse is not the usual standard of this BB. No one has really managed a technical answer to the question beyond it doesn't work in dx8.
For example is this the common problem with RS in dx8 and has LucasArts a position on it?
