DX9 warning for all you Age of Wonders II players

Don’t install DirectX 9 if you’re playing Age of Wonders (in Windows XP). It crashes to the desktop when you actually get into the game. It doesn’t matter if you turn off Direct3D support, either.

This happened to us last night, on two systems. One was an Nforce2/Athlon XP/Radeon 9700 system, the other an Intel 850/P4/Geforce4 Ti 4600 system, so it doesn’t seem to be specific
to hardware.

As ever,

thanks for the tip!

Just wanted to say, im playing AoW2 right now (in window) fine under win 98 w/ DX9.

That is all!
