Game keeps switching to dx9

Game keeps changing back to dx9 mode even though I have a dx11 card and os. Changing the settings in UserSettings file doesn't stick.

Any option to force it to keep dx11?

    Latest drivers? What GPU do you have?

    My guess is ESO is looking for a DX11 functionality it can't find and falls back to DX9 ...

    RadeonPro / SweetFX / NVInspector / other graphical overlays that may interfere or force modes? Did you tweak settings to enable SLI (I've read about dx9-oriented fixes) ? Are you setting the wrong userconfig file or forcing a refresh of that file on startup?

    I also run 7 x64, same driver, SLI GTX 660 (single gpu though) and no such issue.

    Hadn't done anything except change the driver from d9 to d11 in the UserSettings.ini since having the ghost issue. But doesn't stick to d11...

    the exact same thing is happening to me. zenimax should put in patch a fix for this to force us into dx11. i remember seeing it ask me if was allright to download direct x11 during my eso instalation and i allways prefer direct x11 but eso is changing mine to dx9 just like u said no matrter how i try it still remains dx9

    best in slot: is the armor, weapon, clothing look, pet, or no pet, jewelry, race, class, skill choices, amount of DPS, and skin color best fit to you and the way you wish to play and makes you feel good and performs what YOU think it should be.

    worst in slot: what you read in zone chat, and forum comment, and forum thread, and you tube video, and live streamer advice, and class rep advice, and guild chat advice, and whisper told you to wear, and use for skill, and dress like, and use for weapon and armor.

    This might sound simple but changing it in the usersettings.txt and then make it read only wont help?

    Doesn't stop it.

    Today's patch has not solved the issue of it reverting back to dx9. Has made the ghosts visible but I would still like to play in dx11 mode...
