Hey gurus. This is kind of a two-fold question. First is: I have WinXP Pro SP1 and it seems my directx is still version 8.2 (build- 4.08.01..0810) I have even tried updating to 8.1b manually. Although the update tells me everything went well, I don't seem to have the latest directx. I know 8.2 is out, but I would rather wait until it becomes official. The second part is because of UT2003 demo ( I want this to work before I buy the full version). I am getting video freezing even at the lowest settings on my AIW 8500. I think it might be because of the directx problem but any more ideas are welcome. Thanks! I should mention: I am using a dual athlon 1800, SB Live!, and 768MB of DDR ECC Reg. I have the latest drivers from ATI for my video card.
