All hl2 games running on directx 8?
ok so in the last 6 mounths or so ive noticed after the steam pipe update that all old hl2 games would not use directx 9 it uses 8 with options disabled and portals quility sucks. I found I fix by changing the luanch pirameter but why is this. My graphics card is gta 660 ti it runs portal 2 at 300 fps so gpu has no prob intel core i7 3770k 16gb ram asus maximus v formula. I know its not my pc obviusly but why is this.

-dxlevel 90 in startup options works for portal 1 to force it into directx 9. I think there is a different mat_level console command for other hl2 games though.
