The software author or company by this time will have tested it on 8.

Also, dx9 apps/games seem happy on later versions of directx.

After you ask the game's maker/support folk.

In reply to: thanks

I have not tested this title but I'm sure the maker has.

If I wasn't clear, be sure to ask the folk that know the exact answer. My answer is that most dx9, well written apps are OK.
