Has anybody ever dabbled with Nivida SDK (software development kits) for DirectX.
What do they do and are they risky to dabble with?


DirectX | NVIDIA Developer Zone


Every time I try and install my favorite classic games, I get some form of DirectDraw or Direct 3D issue!
These games are not very graphics intensive and some of them date back to DirectX 7!!!

The bottom line is that Nvidia will not allow me to change any of the display settings and thus hardware acceleration is something I can not access! :(

SDK are not really meant to help the end user, they are more for developers making stuff.

The problem you have is the games probably are not playuing well with direct X. I've had a game do that and search showed some internal tweek on a config file solved it.

You should jusst google the game and error code to solve them.
