I installed the merged version of FB/AEP/PF and patched it withe latest upadtes on my PC (XP Pro with SP 2 and DirectX 9.0c). The game's CONF.INI shows an entry "DIRECTX=dx8wrap.dll". Is the game running with DirectX 8?

I have a file in my Il2 FB main folder named dx8wrap.dll. and the same named entry in the config file....under the OpenGL entry.

I always figured they were there to enable switching from OpenGL to DirectX mode if the user chose to do so.

The game is designed to run under OpenGL.

IIRC the dx8wrap.dll is a kind of OpenGL emulator for use by FB/PF when running in (non native) DirectX mode.

Stick to OpenGL for all the eye-candy etc...
