    open crossover , edit the bottle in which beamng is installed , and install an extra application and select direct x new (it`s not very accurate i know , but this will point you in the general direction)

    Look up a tutorial on how to use Crossover, it's really simple once you know the basics of it.

    alrighty ;)

    no vid but a detailed description

    open crossover , click in configure , manage bottles.
    select "beamNG........."
    select applications , click install software
    install directx runtime - new (i also have direct x runtime 9)
    and just to be sure , click controle panel and give the bottle a reboot (it`s still microsoft software underneath ;) )
