5700XT don't support directx 9

Good day!

Having problems with my 5700xt.

Every time i'm trying to play any game that works only on directx 9 i have game crash or even reboot.

For example im trying to play Lost Ark Online on russian server,and every time i'm moving to next location i got game crash.Localization company( keep silence, so i believe i must write about this problem here.

Also a lot of users who got 5700 series can't play properly in Aion and other games, that supports only dx9.

My spec:

Amd Ryzen 3700x

Amd Radeon 5700xt Aorus Gigabyte


16X2 Gb DDR4-3000MHz Crucial Ballistix

960 Gb Samsung 860 QVO

Zallman GV700-GVM

You can fix ur FPS and Crashes in Lost Ark with download Directx 9 and putting the dll in the LOST ARK Binary (GamesMailRu\LOSTARK\Binaries\Win64)

I got the same Problem about low FPS with brandnew Shappire RX 5700 Nitro+ Special Edition during playing StarCraft 2 with low FPS... I wait when AMD can resolve the Problem about DirectX 9.0 with old games… that so weird…

Hello everyone,

I had the same issue however; I found a solution after searching in google found this:

Release Version 0.30 - Froglet · Joshua-Ashton/d9vk · GitHub 

1- There is file called "d9vk-0.30.tar" download it

2- Extract the file (I'm using 7-zip to extract the file) and you will get d9vk-0.30 folder

3- Inside folder there is "d9vk-0.30.tar" extract it again

4- Go to the extracted folder "d9vk-0.30" then go x64 file, you will see 6 files .dll which is all directx versions AND VULKAN!

5- Copy all 6 files and go to the to the lost ark game folder should be like this by default: C:\GamesMailRu\LOSTARK\Binaries\Win64 (unless you put it into different path) then paste files there

and that's it open the game

in my case my fps was 60~80 with dx9 and annoying stuttering in game, after I put the files in game you will noticed that the game will use VULKAN instead of dx9 (you can see that by using msi afterburn) and I got 160 ~ 200 fps and the stuttering issue is gone, I'm surprised that the game support vulkan and its amazing.

I highly recommend to use radeon image Sharpening in radeon software to get better graphics in game, it make the game looks way better and more beauty (you can increase or decrease the image sharpening if you are using Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition (I got 19.12.3 version).

I hope it solve this issue for everyone

I noticed there is new version for d9vk in website but honestly didn't try it yet, you can try it and see how it goes, and there is 1 issue which when you quit the game, you will need to close it by using task manager, I don't know why the game doesn't close it self but doesn't matter as long as we can play the game.
