Re: does this work with windowed games?

Thanks for the support! Life has been happening, so I haven't always felt the urge to work on DXGL unfortunately. A rewrite of a portion of it is still in progress, nearing a point where I can commit some changes and have something half-working. Just noticed your reply as I try to clean up the spam ...

ARM64 users can now experience DXGL thanks to the Microsoft OpenCL and OpenGL Compatibility Pack, available at https://www.microsoft.co...

Re: Diablo II and ALL tests are black screen in WINE

Thanks for the info. Hopefully Wine is requesting the compatibility profile, since at this time DXGL doesn't support the core profile (this is a 0.6.x goal).

If you are running in Wine please specify the Wine version, the OS, and the graphics drivers.

I found other projects quite similar and almost complete, but DXGL seems more straightforward.
I do eventually.

Re: Is ddraw fully supported?

Many features are not fully implemented yet.

For a rough estimate of what APIs are currently supported (I have to go through the list again) see https://dxgl.org/wiki/DXGL_Features

ARM64 Windows support

I did a quick test on a test installation of Windows 10 for ARM64 on a Raspberry Pi 4 and found that it works. To make it work, ensure the following has been done: Install Windows Insider Preview - see https://insider.windows.com/en-us/ for instructions to sign up and configure Windows Update This i...

Re: Website issues

It appears website issues have currently subsided, except for occasional CPU usage alerts from my host caused by a runaway MySQL process, however the site seems to be perfectly fast when it's happening. EDIT: The CPU usage has been traced to attempted brute force attacks on the WordPress installatio...
