    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?

    I'ts also better to re-run them manually because the 'auto' installers uusally run in silent mode, where errors are basically supressed. By running it manually you can actually see what the problem the installer is having and address it.

    This thread is quite old, seven years, BUT...

    If you play Civ5 with Steam, right click on your ``Sid Meier's Civilization V'' entry in your game list.
    Select ``Properties''.
    There click on ``Set launch options..''.
    Enter \dx11 for avoiding the DirectX StartScreen, and always play with DirectX 11.
    \dx9 for DirectX 9, and \win8 for the touchscreen option.

    To find out, what version of DirectX you're running, press ``Ctrl + Alt + R'', enter ``C:\Windows\system32\dxdiag.exe'',
    or ``C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dxdiag.exe'' [<- preferred version, approved by the dungeon master!].

    This is unter ``Windwos 7''.

    If you want to scip the intro video, and save about three seconds, opposed to changing the option inside the game options menu,
    add ``\novid'' to the launch options.

    so I assume, if you use a not DirectX 11 capable graphics card, these things will be greyed out and not selectable

    It's probably automatically using DX11 if you have a DX11 capable GPU.

    Then how do people know that they are running DX11 and not DX10?
