After Hours

Seems like old times

 The CAPCOM and nVidia folks have created a demo version of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. This is the PC version of a previously released XBox 360 game. The exciting thing about the demo is that there is a DirectX 10 version — the first playable DirectX 10 demo.

That sounds great, however, the people who put the demo zip file together forgot to include two DLL files. The ensuing confusion has me reminiscing about 1995.

Here are links to the two files (thanks and props go to LordRegulus, who posted on the CAPCOM Technical Support Forums)

xinput1_3.dll

d3dx10_33.dll

You can download the demo for yourself from Gamespot.
