Two similar questions:
- When I develop Metro apps with DirectX can I still use dx9?
- When I develop normal apps for Windows 8, can I still use dx9?
Also, won't the use of dx11 make less people able to play my games? Not only the ones who got Windows XP but also those with graphic cards that doesn't support dx11?
I can understand that big companies got the resources to implement everything with dx9 as fallback if the user can't use dx11, but as a single person it feels impossible to do so. And it's not like I'm in the need of the extra technologics that dx11 offer.
