I saw that too
I'm hoping for the best
I wonder if this includes DirectX 10 as well? The list of d3dx10 games is small, but I'm sure d3dx11 is even smaller.
Most games are still including DirectX 9 compatibility anyways. Just for those Windows XP gamers who haven't upgraded.
I see one negative thing about this. Could mean that people make ports instead of natives.
I wonder how dx11 games will run though, seeing how many dx9 games require a lot of tinkering to get to run in wine, and even then it's usually far from flawless. Not that I'm expecting that though.
Its really two sided...
They make more wrapped ports like Bioshock Infinite & The Witcher 2 or we wait for companies to port them native last.
Some companies might consider a wrapper or no porting at all.
If there is no chance of a port then I don't mind Wine or wrappers. Most of my games already run.
The games that won't run in Wine have complex DRM or DirectX 10/11 only compatibility.
All of the rest of my games are running GREAT.
I have a feeling some companies will see this as an opportunity to not port games to Linux and just let us figure it out in Wine.
Well, despite my comments I'm somewhat optimistic. Every month we see more and more games getting Linux versions, and most of these are from indie developers.
Thanks to Valve we are getting more "mainstream"
I even saw this article on Unity 3D Editor in Linux:
Yeah, that's pretty cool. The fact that Linux is getting so much support recently must mean that a lot of companies think that Linux is the future.
Speaking of DirectX, I'm really excited about Vulkan.
Note that there are lot of big companies working on Vulkan.
Lolz, then we'd better figure out how how to break stuff, then. Get to work, men.
Breaking things is what I do.
Breaking things is the only way to learn
but what about 12?
how big is the direct x 12 list?
Not that big yet but growing... microfloppy is pushing it...as per usual ...even the the moddb guys are starting to use it..
The list is small: Direct X 12
Apologies booman, I read the report on the number of gaming companies that are currently incorporating it into there games... my bad
No need to apologize
Microsoft likes to hype up everything they do and many times its false advertising
