JSI Tip 6917. You cannot participate in multi-player games after you install DirectX 8.2?

NOTE: If you are on a business network, this is a good thing.

After you upgrade to DirectX 8.2, you experience any or all of the following:

- You cannot see the other players.

- The other players cannot see you.

- The other players cannot see one another.

- You cannot communicate with the other players.

You will experience the above symptoms if the other plays have DirectX 8.1 or earlier.

To resolve this issue, upgrade to DirectX 9.0.
