  2. The correct dxgi.dll file was modified on 11/20/2010 or 11/21/2010 (depending on region) and is 496 KB.
  3. The correct d3d10.dll file was modified on 7/13/2009 or 7/14/2009 (depending on region) and is 0.98 MB.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/45700/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (45700) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
