  1. Question about installing DirectX 6


    I'm trying to get Master of Orion II to work, but it needs DirectX 6.1. I've learned that installing version 9 on top of version 12 (or whatever W10 has) is safe, but is installing version 6 on top of 9 safe? The game won't run with version 9, because it can't find DPLAY.DLL.

    :)
