    Phoronix: DXVK 1.5 Released With The Newly-Added Direct3D 9 Support

    Philip Rebohle has released DXVK 1.5 as the newest version of this Direct3D-over-Vulkan implementation and is a big release considering last night's merging of D9VK / Direct3D 9 support...

    the NVIDIA hardware for Crysis 3 could be implemented for Crysis 2 too, as it always report an error message about AMD before getting in the game (playable anyway)

      About all that ruckus of DXVK going into maintenance mode, turns out people (including Phoronix) blew it up a bit bigger than it was supposed to go. GoL got a statement, plus the DXVK creator themselves commented. Glad to see it cleared up.

        Id be interested in D9VK vs Gallium Nine benchmarks now that both are "mainstream" in DXVK and wine-nine respectively. Is there a PTS runner of just DX9 games?

          I wonder if they're ever gonna add DX8 support too. 8 and 9 are even closer than 10 and 11. It of course would be more of a future proofing thing, there's probably zero DX8 games out there that wouldn't run fine on the original Wine implementation.

            Even a 'simpel' switch (for Proton) would be nice.

              Why would they add DX8 support? Nothing uses DX8 anymore, there are some old Shockwave games I used to play that used DX7 but those already run perfectly on Wine, so there's no real room for improvement considering it's been 10 years at least, since anything major was released with DX8 support.

              What I really want to see though is DX12 support in DXVK, and UWP support in Wine. Since those are things that are actively being targeted by developers of modern programs in 2019/2020....

                DX12 support is provided by VKD3D.

                  If you are interested I recommend DXWrapper which includes D3D8to9. It works quite well for some titles combined with D9VK :-)

                    I believe 1-9 are supposed to be compatible, with each version exposing additional capability.

                    It would be nice to demonstrate 5-9 compatibility. Almost all Windows 95 games had a DOS mode, as far as I can tell 5 shipped with Windows 98.

                    Although childhood memory remember s 7 was the minimum for many years and then around Windows XP everything aimed for 9.
