Tink!

Direct X 10 and some nice graphics.

So, I have downloaded the Windows 7 Beta, and it's amazing I must say. I did some work and got Age of Conan running in direct x 10 mode (currently only test server supports this, but as soon as that patch goes live I'll convert back to the normal servers). Now, here's the thing that rocks. It's GORGEOUS. There are no words. The step up from DX9 conan to DX10 conan was like from other games to conan. I have links, links only because of image size. Note, these are not at maximum quality. I can't push maximum quality with my computer.
