    A Super Mario 64 decompilation, brought to you by a bunch of clever folks.

    Ok but none of that is true. The decompiled code is right there, here's the header file for the camera. The point of this project is to reproduce the same code when compiled, and it absolutely means that the project is tainted legally. There's a reason why there's no license attached to it, it's still Nintendo's. Nintendo has never gone after these projects, they only went after a compiled release because of the very specific reason that you can't release ROM hacks with the original game

  • dxvk

    Vulkan-based implementation of D3D9, D3D10 and D3D11 for Linux / Wine

    I doubt it is because of the OS. There is a ticket for the bug here: https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/1866 I had a working state for some time (using Linux Mint), but naively switching the version of Wine to a different version and back broke it again.
