Trouble Shooting: Mod

ENB Version - If the game fails to start or the graphics are incorrect ingame, try switching the D3D9.dll with one from the altd3d9 folder.
Copy one of the four and paste it over the existing one in the game folder.
Try each one, until you locate the one appropriate for your video card.

ENB Version - If the game has performance issues or microstutters.
Open the enbseries.ini and change the [Global] AllowAntialias=1 to 0.

Install the DX9 final release if you haven't done so previously. DX9 Final Release June2010
DX install: Download and run the file, tell it to extract to c:\dx, then after goto c:\dx and run the dxsetup file.
This will not downgrade your DirectX but rather add support files required by ENB, Reshade and SweetFX.

Check to make sure you are using the newest graphics drivers.
Try disabling any turbo or overclocking software.

Nvidia users can also use this mod (Thanks to khalilsm) to allow the game to run if you have any issues.
Rename the d3d9.dll that came with this mod to d3d9orig.dll and place the d3d9.dll from that mod with it in the game folder.
