    BS M Failed to start because d3dx9_31.dll not found

    Cant start the game because it cant find the d3dx9_31.dll.

    I am running nvidia Ge Force 8800GTX with Version 10 Direct X.

    Microsoft OS Vista home Core2 duo.

    If this is a version DX10 issue is their any plans to make the game compatible with version 10.

    Games going back to the shop if I cant get the thing working.... pity looks good!

    Cant use DX10. Install DX9 from the game disc.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think that may be the problem, the new Nvidia 8800GTX doesnt support DX9.

    Looks like the games going back to the shop.

    MY 8800GTX works just fine using DX9. Of couse I am running XP and not vista. Will vista work with DX9?

    Thanks for all the comments.

    But I got it working OK with all the eye candy on full..... it certainly is spectacular.

    It works fine after I installed the Microsoft DirectX Software Development Kit

    The dll's that I needed are all included in the attached link.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...n#Instructions

    Works OK on Vista as this release of the SDK is fully supported.

    Its a large dowload but its worth it.

    Don't think you needed the whole SDK. A simple install of the February release of directx 9 should have worked.

    Hi revenant,

    here is the d3dx9_31.dll : http://www.d3dx9.net/download-missing-d3dx9_31-dll/…download it and then extract the downloaded zip file to the system32 folder which is located in windows folder (that is located in your main drive which contains the installed windows)
