S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadows of Chernobyl - DX9 or DX10?

Postby GodSquirrel » Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:05 am

I was just wondering which you all though Stalker used, DX9 or DX10. I'm talking about the first game, not the train wreck that is Clear Sky.

When you vote, please tell me where you got your info on this.

According to Wikipedia the graphics engine used in the game is DX9 compatible engine.

According to the official stalker website the game uses the X-Ray graphics engine, which is DX9.

According to stalker's website, DX9 is indeed correct. In fact everyone, including the game's makers, seem to think its DX9, yet this site has been incorrectly claiming it as DX10 for a while now.

And on every video card review going back until stalker came out. It seems no matter how many times you point out to them that it isn't DX10 they don't care. They still go on the long since outdated announcement that stalker would have DX10, which was fairly quickly changed to say DX9.

You'd think a technical site like this would be able to tell the difference, or at least do the slightest bit of research on a game, especially if they planned to use it for a benchmark.

You would think so. Why they continue to use it as a benchmark I dont know. I dont have Stalker so I cant load it up and check if there is a DX10 setting or not.

I've mentioned it to them here, and over the phone, and via email; over the past couple of years. Trust me, there is NO setting for DX10 in stalker, stalker's own website clearly states so..
My point here is to show the ignorance of current technology by the current staff here.

He lost his member status here. He clearly broke the rules and per the rules he was banned.
