64-bit information

As of version 0.5.19, DXGL now has a 64-bit (x64 platform) version. Before downloading this version please understand the following: The 64-bit version is for the sole purposes of supporting 64-bit target programs. Most DirectDraw programs are 32-bit and thus this version will not work for them. Use...

Re: DX /MT libs

dinput8 and dsound can be found in the Windows SDK. dxguid.lib can be found in the DirectX SDK. A compatible version of ddraw.lib is generated by the build process for DXGL. All these libraries simply represent Win32 APIs, and thus should not be affected by the /MT build option. DXGL is currently on...

Contact page temporarily disabled

The contact pages on forum.dxgl.info and dxgl.org have been temporarily disabled, as I am currently having spam problems. They will be re-enabled hopefully by this weekend with an updated configuration.

Re: Revert system changes with uninstalling ?

Global settings apply to all programs to which DXGL has been applied. Uninstalling will delete all instances of DXGL tracked by the configuration utility thus reverting the programs to normal.

Programs that do not have a DXGL ddraw.dll in their folder will not be affected at all by the settings.

Re: does this work with windowed games?

Weird, tried it on the latest NVIDIA drivers and the framerate seems fine. An ancient version of DXGL, version 0.1.6, does seem to trigger the slowdown. Perhaps I should check if the system timers are being modified. EDIT: It appears my system timer resolution is switching to 1ms when the game is ru...

Re: does this work with windowed games?

That is something I will need to investigate; I seem to have slow framerate on my i7-7700k/GTX1080 system too. I checked with FRAPS and yes I am seeing a drop from 30 to 15 fps in-game. I will have to investigate further as I may be missing the vertical blank or something. I'll look at earlier versi...
