I have dx 9.0 as well and have no problems..what kind of video card to you have?

This is probably a problem with your current video drivers. Instead of troubleshooting that, however, just run the game using OpenGL (looks just as good, if not better)

Go to the directory in which you installed the game

- locate the TEXT file called "Hitman2". Make sure its the configuration file, or INI file and NOT the EXE!

- open the file

- Find the line that reads "DrawDll RenderD3D.Dll"

- Change this line so it reads "DrawDll RenderOpenGL.Dll"

- Save the file

- Run the game

Hope this helps
