      CochainComplex The fork happened quite early in VKD3D's development, so the codebases are substantially different now. But so are the use cases: VKD3D is meant to be as compliant as possible and also has future professional applications in mind. VKD3D-Proton is exclusively tailored to gaming and will also utilize application specific workarounds and "hacks" to achieve that goal with acceptable performance.

            So they still do share the codebase? I don't understand. Can you elaborate please?

              Can you please start saying the correct words instead so the rest of us can also get to know what is correct. T. random observer

                  First of all, JoshuaAshton is anything but a random observer, so show some respect!

                  AFAIK, he gets upset when people belittle VKD3D-Proton as something non-compliant hacked together to only run a handful of games decently, while in practice the opposite is true, namely VKD3D being the inferior option because it is mainly developed with the limitations of Apple's Metal (& by extension MoltenVK) in mind.

                    Is VKD3D still sponsored by Valve at this point? If not, who's funding it, mac sales?
