Tech help - Force Dx8?

There doesn't seem to be a tech-help thread, but I'm frequently ignorant.

Rig:
P4 2.4GHz
1GB DDR 533MHz
256mB 9600XT w/ latest driver & DX 9.0c
300Gb IDE HDD @ 3200RPM (More than enough space)

Yeah, it ain't exactly a beast, gunning for a new one on my birthday after DX10 is nice and entrenched.

I get a fair bit of choppy gameplay, I don't particularly mind sacrificing quality for it.

So, does anyone know how to force Dx8? With console commands or anything? Help greatly appreciated.

you allready have DX8 selected because that card cannot run any of the DX9 modes.

Why? The 9600XT is a fully DX9.0 compliant card.

IRT First poster:
How's the performance on 800x600 with low settings? Does the game look fairly poor at these settings? What's the highest possible settings with a playable framerate and how does the game look there? I'm trying to get a picture of the real-world requirements for this game so I can decide if I should wait until I build a new PC next year.

My specs are very similar to yours, except I have a 2.5gHz CPU and 1024mb PC-133 SDRAM.

You need to modify the "user.ltx" file located on your x:/documents and settings/All Users/Documents/Stalker SHOC/ folder. Open it with Notepad, find the line that says "render render_2 (or 2a)" and change it to "render render_1"

Save changes and start the game. It will now be on DX8 mode.
