Before DirectX 8.1, I was suffering from a constant inconsistent framerate. I would join a localserver and get 120 consistent FPS, then go into a skial 24/7 2fort server and get only 20. It one time was so bad that I was losing FPS during actions like revving up, rocket jumping, and detonator jumping.
I switched to DirectX 8.1, and as soon as I did I got a constant 24,000 FPS consistently. My ex boyfriend also messaged me saying he wanted me back, and I received someone else's mail which gave me 4 fleshlights. I am now not only drowning in FPS, but constant sexual pleasure (from both my boyfriend and the fleshlights) AND my boss said I'm getting a raise this week.
DirectX 8.1 has truly opened a new chapter into my life, and I am so very grateful for this. Thank you, DirectX developers.
