If I remember well, end 2008 the information about the BoB graphic engine was talking about Direct X 9 but.

The problem is not the additional eye candy available with the Direct X 10, but the possibility to use 100% of your graphic card capacity and as consequence to allow the player to buy cheaper graphic cards to run BoB if the game is DX10 compatible.

After listening to this, we can already say that if BoB runs on DX9 instead of DX10, everybody will have to buy an "alien technology graophic card and processor" to reach a decent FPS ...

It was originally said (by Oleg) that it would support DX9.0c but that was well over a year ago and may have changed since them. Personally, I still haven't seen a reason to use DX10 over DX9.0c.

Isn't SOW BOB using OpenGl?

Oleg stated on the banana forums that SoW will use openGL.

WOW! I'll run out and buy Vista right now just to have this http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
Seriously. Vista, for many of us, is not ready or proven enough to justify DX10 or vise versa. Oleg knows this. He is making a scalable game for users with many computer types, not JUST a game for Vista users.
Urufu is right. OpenGL is what Oleg is using. I imagine it will still have support for DX9 just like now.

Nearly Every game so far thats used dx10 has run worse in dx10 than 9.

SoW like il2 is likely also going to be using opengl not dx3d.
