  • xenia

    Xbox 360 Emulator Research Project

  • Project mention: Welcome to r/OnlinePreservation! | /r/OnlinePreservation | 2023-08-17

    Xenia (Xbox 360) Emulator: https://xenia.jp/

  • reshade

    A generic post-processing injector for games and video software.

  • Project mention: Jagged edges on everything, regardless of AA settings | /r/EliteDangerous | 2023-12-11

    If you are interested in making it look even better, then installing ReShade and adding FSAA there also makes a huge improvement over the best settings in game.

  • apitrace

    Tools for tracing OpenGL, Direct3D, and other graphics APIs

  • Project mention: Apitrace – trace and replay OpenGL, Direct3D, and DirectDraw APIs calls | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-04
  • KlayGE

    KlayGE is a cross-platform open source game engine with plugin-based architecture.

  • SpartanEngine

    A game engine with an emphasis on real-time cutting-edge solutions

  • Project mention: SpartanEngine: MIT-licensed C++ Vulkan game engine | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-17

  • LLGL

    Low Level Graphics Library (LLGL) is a thin abstraction layer for the modern graphics APIs OpenGL, Direct3D, Vulkan, and Metal

  • Project mention: Looking to create a engine (for fun) and am willing to rethink my stack from scratch. Should I go with Rust/wgpu/web-based UI, or C++/Vulkan/Qt, or even some other stack? | /r/GraphicsProgramming | 2023-06-05

    LLGL Looks like a good alternative to BGFX, I haven't tried it though.

  • ShaderConductor

    ShaderConductor is a tool designed for cross-compiling HLSL to other shading languages

  • Project mention: Start project on Metal, port to DX11? | /r/GraphicsProgramming | 2023-04-27

    Have you seen this project: https://github.com/microsoft/ShaderConductor? It is maintained by Microsoft as well.

  • slang

    Making it easier to work with shaders

  • xenia-canary

    Xbox 360 Emulator Research Project

  • Project mention: Viva Piñata Switch | /r/VivaPinata | 2023-12-11

    I’m using this version

  • d912pxy

    DirectX9 to DirectX12 API proxy for Guild Wars 2

  • Project mention: Day 1 for me and I'm completely lost | /r/Guildwars2 | 2023-08-23

    I'm surprised nobody covered p.2. JUST USE d912pxy. Period. The game is unplayable without it. BTW running it on Linux has the same effect as it translates DirectX calls to Vulkan calls and precompiles shaders. As much as I appreciate and respect ArenaNet will to fix performance introducing Dx11 hardly improved anything. There is still long way to go.

  • Unreal-Engine-Guide

    Unreal Engine 5 Guide. Learn to develop games for Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch.

  • MethaneKit

    🎲 Modern 3D graphics made simple with C++17 cross-platform framework and rendering abstraction API on top of DirectX 12, Metal & Vulkan

  • D3D12MemoryAllocator

    Easy to integrate memory allocation library for Direct3D 12

  • Kaguya

    D3D12 Rendering Engine (by kcloudy0717)

  • GPU-Reshape

    GPU Reshape (GRS) is an API agnostic instrumentation framework, with instruction level validation.

  • Project mention: GPU Reshape – shader instrumentation for everyone | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-21

    The tool is opensource - looks like it’s published under an MIT license.

    If Linux support matters to you, maybe you can get involved or fork the project. It supports a remote debugging protocol - so as a first pass you might be able to add Linux support without needing to port the UI.

    I agree with you - I wish more tools like this supported Linux. But I also really respect the original author’s effort here. Making a project like this is a lot of work already. They’re under no obligation to support Linux if they don’t use Linux themselves. Letting the community step in to add Linux support is, in my opinion, opensource done right.

    Simple GPU clock stabilizer for consistent profiling
