No! Because today, Win XP is the most used Operating System. In the next few Years, Vista don't replace it.

OpenGL kicks DX in the butt.

Voted with "No" too, because as Alrik already said

Direktx is pure indirect marketing for buying hasta la vista


But hey - must be about two years ago I visited the Larian Forums last time! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />
Is there still hope after all (considering the 2007-announcements for "our next RPG" ) ? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

I just guess they just didn't want to make it compatible to slightly force people towards hasta la vista.

That's how MS works.





Yes Alrik, it's another "forced" sale, obviously,

Well, although Dx10 is obviously better than Dx9 in so many ways, all those graphics will be useless if the game design is poor. Pretty stuff is only useful if it does enhance the gameplay factor and contributes to the environment(not just slapping in AAF and stuff). Otherwise, it's just another way to tout a huge budget so you can draw in the graphics whores.

Btw, Vista is just as functional as XP, albeit with a bit of speed boost and as it is, I don't see any motivations for me to upgrade. Besides, isn't Vienna coming out in 2 to 3 years' time?

It should be DX 10 compatible. It's probably quite a ways off and almost every new game being released now is DX 10 compatible. Just because it is capable of that does not mean it won't run on DX9 hardware. Hellgate: London, Lord of the Rings Online, Crysis and numerous others run on both systems. Don't worry that it's going to exclude you if you are still on XP.
