Directx 10 support

New releases and general discussions.

It would be nice if Construct games would run with DX10 too so some vista/win7 users wont need to install DX9 just to play these games.

Frequently encountering people who don't have the right Directx is annoying.
That's probably the only thing I like about MMF over construct is that you don't need to download anything else when you get the game.

I'm sure DirectX 9 comes with Vista and Win7, they just don't include the "optional" addons that Construct games require.

Don't ask me why they do it like this. DirectX 10 has a similar set of "optional" addons that would probably work the same way. The solution is probably to have a future version of Construct bundle in the DirectX updates that are required.

I'm not convinced this confers any benefits, given it'll require you have 2 downloads, and download sites don't tend to allow this.

I meant just throw in the required DLLs to the EXE.

I was talking about a Direct-X 10 runtime.

I can't think where you'd bundle DLL's into my face, to be honest.

DX10 wouldn't bring much advantage anyway. The soft particles i've seen can be done already by blurring. It's just hype.
