Top 23 C++ DirectX Projects
Cross-platform, graphics API agnostic, "Bring Your Own Engine/Framework" style rendering library.Project mention: BGFX DirectX11 "Failed to create vertex shader" over Windows 10x64, but works fine under Win7x86 with d3d9. | reddit.com/r/GraphicsProgramming | 2021-11-22

RenderDoc is a stand-alone graphics debugging tool.Project mention: Renderdoc's GPU Selection on a laptop | reddit.com/r/vulkan | 2021-04-19
Renderdoc works by inserting itself as a Vulkan layer, which means it can change the output of functions if it so chooses. As you can see in the RenderDoc version of vkEnumeratePhysicalDevices it changes how devices are returned, and this likely is the reason the order changes.
Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.
The Forge Cross-Platform Rendering Framework PC Windows, Linux, Ray Tracing, macOS / iOS, Android, XBOX, PS4, PS5, Switch, Quest 2Project mention: Why do they make their own engine? | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 2021-11-25
Woah, apparently they used an open source rendering framework called The-Forge. I wonder if they switched their scripting tech (I think they used to have a proprietary language, but TheForge provides lua scripting).

Improved version of the X-Ray Engine, the game engine used in the world-famous S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game series by GSC Game World. Join OpenXRay! ;)Project mention: If software (OpenXRay-engine in this case) has a BSD-style license, does that automatically mean I can make derivative works (eg a new game, unrelated to S.T.A.L.K.E.R.) and sell them? | reddit.com/r/foss | 2021-11-28
DirectXTex texture processing libraryProject mention: Does Anyone Know a Tool That Can Mass Compress/Resize DDS Files? | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 2021-10-12
I know only Nvidia texture tools exporter but it's not in masse sorry My suggestion is to create a python script that uses texconv.exe for every file in a directory, pretty easy to get
Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.
Low Level Graphics Library (LLGL) is a thin abstraction layer for the modern graphics APIs OpenGL, Direct3D, Vulkan, and MetalProject mention: Writing game engines in c++, recommendations | reddit.com/r/learnprogramming | 2021-01-21
DirectXMath is an all inline SIMD C++ linear algebra library for use in games and graphics appsProject mention: Use of BLAS vs direct SIMD for linear algebra library operations? | reddit.com/r/cpp | 2021-08-28
For graphics DX math is a very good library.
