Did valve remove phong.

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

Did valve remove phong.

One time I entered to TF2 and apparently the characters were phongless. I didn't download any of the phongless packs that are available here in gamebanana. They just showed up. So I'm wondering if Valve made an update and remove all the phong from tf2. If anybody also got this...please reply. Thank You.

    If you started using an FPS increasing config you've probably set your DX level so low that it doesn't support phong itself.

    > **Posted by Logan Dougall** > If you started using an FPS increasing config you've probably set your DX level so low that it doesn't support phong itself. I do have my game properties set in -dxlevel 81. That's because those stupid hl2.exe errors keep poping up. After I set the dx thing., it works perfectly fine. But what your saying is that the dx thingy is what causing it??? If so how can have the regular phong back without removing the dx thing.

Update your directx drivers to 9, 10 or 11 and you will be fine, and remember to reset the launch property to something valid. directxupdate.com

People run it in DirectX 8.1 or lower to remove useless graphical features that bog-down the game and cannot be removed via configs. He doesn't have to install a later version of DirectX to run the game in DirectX 8.1 or to run the game in any other DirectX installation. His system most likely (And I mean: 99.9%) has the latest version of DirectX installed unless he's on a operating system that does not support DirectX "Y" or higher.
