Hi guys,

DirectX is a component of your system. It helps improve experience with multimedia. It provides updated graphics or full color graphics, quality audio, faster framesets. You might have one installed already since it is a system component but what you have might not meet the system requirement of the game that you are about to install. It is always a question of compatibility. The game requires a DirectX version 8 and what you have might be the older versions. You can actually get it online. Just search for it and it will give you results for downloads. You can also check from local computer shops if they can have this version of DirectX installed in your system. Thank you. Good day!
