Locked at Directx 8
When I play the game, The directx mode is locked at 8 on my gtx 580. I recently did a fresh install of windows. It was fine before :/ Any ideas?

I figured it bud, You have to type "+mat_dxlevel 95" In launch options :) It fixes it.

I got a slightly different solution in case someone is still having trouble with this:

In what game? Half life 2 only goes up to 8x AA if you were wondering. If you want higher levels you can do it in the nvidia control pannel or amd catalist control center. I don't advise it though because I honestly don't see a difference past even 4x.
