Gsdx not working with DirectX 10
#1
I am running a Windows Vista laptop with DirectX 9 & 10 both supported and properly downloaded. Right now PCSX 0.9.6 will only run with ZeroGS and Gsdx DirectX 9, which goes to speeds of about 40% FPS. When I try to run Gsdx with DirectX 10, it says "GS plugin failed to open/initialize" and closes PCSX2. DirectX 10 would use my graphics card instead of my processor to run the graphics and run the emulator faster than with DirectX 9. How would I go about doing this?

Update your drivers, update your directx.

What GSdx version is it?

I am currently using GSdx 890 (MSVC 15.00, SSE2) 0.1.14, and I don't think my DirectX can get any more updated.

Recently, I believe. Does it matter? I have all the necessary dll files in my System32 folder.

EDIT:
Alright, I just updated my graphics drivers and when I ran the latest DirectX install package it said that I had the latest one. When I tried PCSX2 again the problem still persisted.

Try getting the latest beta and see if you have any better luck with the GSdx included there.

I had heard some of the mobility HD 2xxx cards do not support DX10 correctly, but not having one I cant be sure really...

When I ran that version, Gsdx didn't even give DirectX 10 as an option.

You need atleast Service Pack 1 on Vista for DX10 to be an option.

Newer GSdx builds have an availability check for dx10. Since it doesn't offer you the option anymore, dx10 is indeed not available.
The code tries to load "d3d10_1.dll", and if it fails, returns dx10 not available.

dx10 is supported by your gpu(according to AMD). Do a huge clean up and get rid of everything then re-install the new beta 1888. Troll around this forum and look for the SDK directx download. Anoying I know, but micro$oft has the answers for your dx10 woes I think. Please keep us updated on your results....
