  • DirectX options in Steam launch window???

    Hi, what is up with the multiple launch options in Steam and their effects on the game?

    1) Play Sid Meiers's Civ V
    2) Sid Meiers Civ 5 (DirectX 9)

    if I choose option 1 then another screen comes up and offers me (redundantly) to select to play using DirectX 9 OR DirectX 10 & 11 (RECOMMENDED).

    If I choose "DirectX 10 & 11 (RECOMMENDED)" then it appears to me that the game does not display as well as it does on DirectX 9 (the water tyles for example are much better under DirectX 9.

    Why the options? and why do at least some things appear better under 9?

    You may be able to find a solution for reinstalling DirectX.
    You can also check the integrity of the game files in steam.
    Either there is a problem in the system.

      I also had this problem when I was a total newb to PCs. I didn't know that time how precious were DirectX to gaming.
