    DX10, although TF2 will probably only use the 9.0c subset of commands.

    Your card isnt running DX10. Vista has to install DX10 and that coveres all others versions. Your card will just run at its hardware limit, DX9.

    For all you looking for a great guide, Vista Annoyances Resolved by Koroush Ghazi on Tweakguides has an excellent article your should read even if you don't use vista.
    http://www.tweakguides.com/VA_1.html
    It answeres a lot of questions, especially why you should switch, and explains why to ignore the people saying "VISTA SUCKS" because it really dosen't now. Please read as its very informative.

    BTW I'm using Vista x64 and I've been playing the game American McGees ALICE from 2002 and it runs without any patches or tweaking. I love that!

    The only issues I have with Vista that don't involve needing a newer PC or hardware are 2-3 things.

    1: The User Account Control. People who are comfortable with the PC already will hate this, but for novices this is a great idea. However, it can be turned off.

    2: Issues running some games and such. Vista is the most secure version yet, like for example, PC pro's will get this. When I want to end a program, it will ACTUALLY end most of the time, without me having to go to processses and shit to stop it there. Plus it don't blue screen me. The issue though is with some games not running unless you tweak them right.

    I'm about to 'get' Vista Ult. 64 (full updates) due to my PC overhaul requiring it but I'm a bit worried about going to Vista -_-

    Hopefully things will go smoothly like with XP. I just got 2x 1gb ram sticks so hopefully that'll sustain smooth gameplay and Vista.

    Will TF2 run smoothly on a Core 2 with vista ult 64? Rud says he can only use 1 of his phenom's cores but I heard you can dual TF2 (although it becomes unstable).

    So much new stuffs to learn im gonna be surrendering the next 16 hours to the project so I wont be playing lol (not like i play during the week except in the late hours).

    Angry Vista 64 Ultimate hl2.exe crashing

    Hey,
    I was told that Shocker was the man for Vista 64 issues, so here goes...
    I just did a clean install of Vista 64, here's my hardware specs:

    Motherboard - Gigiabyte EP35-DS3R
    Processor - Intel Core2 Duo E8500
    Memory - OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
    (PC2 8500) Dual Channel
    Video Card - e-GeForce 8800 GT 512MB DDR3 Superclocked

    Here's the error:
    hl2.exe has stopped working

    Anybody had this problem?
    I just did the install so all the drivers are up to date.
    There isn't much about it on the web, any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Krom- Make sure you have SP1 installed. It should be in your windows update and install automatically. I had this problem, when SP1 came out it resolved it.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for all the ideas, I ended up re-installing Steam... twice, so far so good.
    Haven't crashed in game just the usual when exiting.


    I did run into another little problem, I couldn't access the Steam Community Overlay when I was in the game. I did a little trouble shooting and found that the EVGA Precision On-Screen Display Server was the culprit. If any of you have EVGA cards this is a nice little utility and the OSD allowed me to keep an eye on my core GPU temp while in game. But I'd rather have access to the steam community overlay



    Do any of you guys use the console commands to enable multi-threading?
    r_threaded_renderables "1" // default 0
    mat_queue_mode "2" // default -1

    What console commands (if any) do you use?

    mat_queue_mode 2 may make your TF2 unstable and I had problems starting it after using it then closing TF2, but you get awesome framerates.
