Well, DX9 shouldn’t be active as long as that setting is unchecked, might need to ‘Verify Integrity Of Downloaded Files’ in ‘Shared Cache’ of ‘Tools / Cache’ setting in the Launcher. After logging into the game, could also try ‘Clear All Cache Files’ in ‘Re-set Settings’ tab of Esc Menu…
Not sure if I’ve mentioned it before, but Win7 is still awesome. /rant
Now, getting more to the point, it would have been nice if dx9 was kept on board, with a per launch revert to the recommended >=dx11 version, if only for the debugging benefit that it brings - not only once it helped more or less technically inclined people to help debug issues with the game, as far as I could tell from the forums.
Might be the graphics card you are using
I have the same problem here
I’m using an old laptop with Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics ( I am quite poor lol)
Although I have Direct x 11 installed the GPU doesn’t see it - Only compatible with Direct X 10.1 apparently.
Alas - no more EVE for me until I can afford a new laptop
I’m afraid EVE has never supported Direct X 10, so support wasn’t dropped for it at the same time as DirectX 9. Direct X 11 (Feature level 11_0) is currently the only Direct X level we support on Windows.
You keep not mentioning what videocard you have, even though you’ve been asked repeatedly.
It’s almost as if you damn well know your vidcard is the issue but you’re avoiding that and are trying to make your problem somebody else’s problem. All while lacking the understanding that it really is your problem and no amount of… talking is going to solve it.
Intel HD graphics 3000 supports DX 11.1 that said, that is about a 8-11 year old computer, why continue to torture yourself with that computer when you can buy a 300 dollar laptop that will absolutely run circles around what you have now? May be able to build one for less, but parts are pretty tight right now
