Hey guys, I tried to change the video driver from OpenGL to Direct3D9
This is how I typed it into the Minetest CONF

video_driver = direct3d9

Then when I tried to go Single Player and Server it works for a few seconds and goes to this:

Whenever I try to go back in it repeats the message.

Then this happens:

And when I exit:

Now I have read some other problems about this and the answers are not working for me.
If you can give me a detailed explanation then that will be great. Thanks
(P.S When I removed the direct3d9 from the MT Notepad it worked properly.)

1) Direct3D can be buggy depending on your graphics driver.

2) Only OpenGL supports all the features Minetest supports -- Direct3D won't support shaders.

Should my shaders be turned off? My shaders is already off. Should I upgrade my Direct3D 9?

What Minetest version do you use? A self compiled one?

No, the regular version.
