This download is 46MB, but it's done wonders for the frame rate of my games. It's boosted the frame rate by at least 5 frames, for games which have been retextured. This is a must download for everybody to improve their gaming experience with PJ64 or any other emulator. Please reply back with comments on whether this download improved your frame rate or not. It can also improve other aspects of your gaming experience. Hope you enjoy it.

It's the December 05 updated version of Dx9.0c, worth putting in - M$ is supposed to have updated things a little for the newer games out, BF2, etc.

Doaes it help or it slows it down?

It asked me where to install it (the directory)... Where should I put it?

Anyone?

Anywhere, it's just extracting the files. It doesn't matter

1) This is the 1964 forum, not Project64.
2) I don't think DirectX is the reason for your "increase" of 2.5 fps, yes Project64's Fps counter is not frames per second like you might think, to get the real value you just half it, 60 = 30 and 50 = 25. In any case this increase is hardly worth it as the human eye will never notice it.

I noticed it, and I don't have "super"-vision. Anyways if it didn't help you, i'm sorry to hear that. Maybe it'll help someone else...

it seems like microsoft should re-name updates too. I mean, they're only on "c". It's not like they're running out of letters of the alphabet.
