Im sorry i couldn't find this topic anywhere if so delete and tell me in pm please http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

So is the assassin going to leave its marks on the Xp or Vista?

im hoping its xp
untill vista comes out with SP1 im not getting it at all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

OR hopefully it can be run on BOTH you'll get even more marketing "denero" ($) if that happens


Well what i mean by this is theres no DEFINITE answer!

i want to know FOR sure or atleast 80% thats its going to be on either on or both.

for the XP - for sure!!!
vista - maybe

09-25-2007, 07:17 PM
It will obviously be compatible for both. UBI would be losing a lot of money if they designed the game for just Vista.

09-25-2007, 08:12 PM
Im not so sure that it will be on XP
because Microsoft has all this '360 vista' cross connection things going on, i think this means there is a connection between the 360 and vista
also, 360 has DX10 games designed for it, hence XP wont run DX10... vista does though!
I think, unfortunately, it will be vista only

actually if you read the news you would find out the Microsoft
is going to make DX10 FOR WINDOWS!

in fact its already leaked as beta

09-25-2007, 08:54 PM
DX10 on XP??
thats new for me

09-26-2007, 12:53 AM
its not actually called dx10 its called dx9.something and is the same as dx10 but for xp. Also expect xp sp3 soonish.

09-26-2007, 03:38 AM
Are you talking about the dx9 thats already out for xp? or some other version of dx9.....

09-26-2007, 05:29 AM
I don't think they will release directX 10 for XP ... One of the major reasons of people buying Vista is because of directX 10 and Microsoft has been focusing on that so why would they suddenly make directX 10 for XP ?

09-26-2007, 02:14 PM
Well no if you READ! articles LOL you will find out that its already out in "special websites" aka BETA dx10 for xp!

and yeah its confirmed that M.Soft is going to release it on XP because to the public soon

no one maybe like 5 or less% of people bought VISTA

thats why he is doing this

09-26-2007, 02:16 PM

It doesn't give full Dx10 capabilities in XP as XP and Vista handle things in a completely different way.
Vista Dx10 was meant to have virtualisable graphics memory.
ATI worked hard and managed to impliment it.
In their rush to be first with Dx10 cards, Nvidia screwed up, and couldn't get it to work properly. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
So Microsoft made it optional for Dx10 and not compulsary, thereby saving Nvidia and at the same time giving ATI what it's been giving Pc users for years ............(use your own expletives) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
So any XP version of Dx10 (hacked or otherwise) will not give true Dx10 capabilities, once Nvidia get things sorted and manage to utilise GPU memory virtualisation, Vista and Dx10 will be able to have much more graphical scope than XP. By then though, Vista will hopefully be on at least Service Pack 2 and I might consider upgrading to it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Direct X 10 for XP is comming with SP3 and it will be called Direct X 9.0d (XP equal of Vista DX10) im pretty sure it will be compatible with all dx10 cards as well as SM3.0 and PS 3. cards..

09-27-2007, 05:02 AM
and what about the MAC? will it be Mac Compatible?

09-27-2007, 05:03 AM
I think so.... not sure though but it's most likely...

I would think not, but you can run windows vista on a mac...so probably there will be some way to intercept Dx10 on a mac.....but i doubt it...
