Missing Hawx_dx10.exe file here (this is not the demo, but the PC retail file)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, this is my second go at a Directx 10 fix. Earlier I posted a poor fix by using the non-Steam directx 10 *.exe file. That caused some problems, like errors, instability and no multiplayer. So I pulled it down.

Well, I went to the ubi.com forum and asked somebody to upload the Hawx_dx10.exe file from the PC retail version. And I got it, here is that thread:

Do the following:

1. Click on this link (file is in this thread)
http://forums.steampowered.com...wthread.php?t=825886 (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=825886)

or here:

2. You will note that this file is not compressed, but it doesn't matter.
3. Save it into c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\tom clany's hawx
4. Now you will have two Hawx icons (with capital Xs), double click on the HAWX_dx10 icon.
5. It will start up with the Directx 10 menu tab fully visible and you can set the game up with Directx 10.
6. This does not disturb your saved profile.
7. You have multiplayer functionality.

Please note that if you run your game from your Steam console it will just run in the Directx 9 mode as before.

I have been running Directx 10 online in Versus mode and it worked fine.

I am running an Nvidia 8800 ultra with Vista 64 with no problems.

I'm just a little concerned that this might be viewed as an illegal hack or something and earn a ban.

I understand it is with good intentions and all but Steam has been known to not care.

As long as it is not cheating nor does it change the functionality of the game, I would think it is just fine. In fact, it fixes what was broken. This what these forums are really for....

I don't think I am in any trouble. This post was moved without locking or deletion from Hawx to Hawx Community Technical Support. Perhaps this is tacit approval.
