Add -d3d11 in the command line or SET gxApi "d3d11" in Config.wtf in your WTF folder.

What, exactly, will adding D3D11 do to WoW? I didn't think it had any effects in the game that used it.

The new water uses DX11 from what I've heard.
#7VeiledGenesisPosted 10/12/2010 9:06:34 PM
I tried both, and it looks the same. And I know for a fact my rig can handle it. The experimental DX11 crap is poorly optimized.

Doesn't do anything at the moment. Some people have claimed performance increase, but Blizzard has confirmed nothing is different visually at the moment.

It's more of a test just to get it working flawlessly so that they CAN add stuff in the future.

Is Crysis really still the PC killer app?

^apparently it is... my computer went crazy with Crysis... now, I need to get a new one... going to Fry's, Best Buy's "gaming computer" wasn't that great... it had problems with WoW now and then...

... sorry for venting out my frustration, but I can't even play WoW right now, due to Crysis...


... sorry again...
