    Exclamation Rome was unable to find direct x problem

    guys please help I recently reformated my hardrive and so I had to reinstall Rome, (and EB) I installed the direct x that the rome installer prompts you to but when I tried to run EB it said that it did not detect direct x 9 and it crashes, so I installed direct x 9 again and it still doesnīt work, it says the same thing, I didnīt find any thread that talked about this and I really want to play EB.

    When you reformatted your hardrive, I assume you reinstalled your operating system, or your computer would not work at all. If your operating system came with a version of direct X which is newer than the X9 that RTW came with, then you tried to install an older version over a newer version, which could cause trouble. Another possibility is that there was something screwy with your disk, like a scratch or dirt, which made the installation go wrong.

    This is what I suggest you do. Go on line and install the newest version of direct X you can find (11?) Hopefully that should repair your problem, whatever caused it. If that fails, I guess you could reinstall your OS all over again and this time choose not to install direct X from the RTW installer. Good luck.
    In those simple times there was a great wonder and mystery in life. Man walked in fear and solemnity, with Heaven very close above his head, and Hell below his very feet. God's visible hand was everywhere, in the rainbow and the comet, in the thunder and the wind. The Devil too raged openly upon the earth; he skulked behind the hedge-rows in the gloaming; he laughed loudly in the night-time; he clawed the dying sinner, pounced on the unbaptized babe, and twisted the limbs of the epileptic. A foul fiend slunk ever by a man's side and whispered villainies in his ear, while above him there hovered an angel of grace . . .

    I tried installing both direct x 10 and 11, and it still said that iīve got a newer or equivalent version, I can do various things like watch videos and play plants vs zombies, but if I try to run something like an MMO it says that my pc canīt do 3d but i know it can because it used to; I think that Iīm going to try to uninstall the direct x version that I have and install dx 11, after that update my pc properly because I still have to do that.direct x.bmpfrustration.bmp

    Drivers. I should have thought of that.
