Post feature RSS Ported DirectX 9 render device

Enhanced DirectX 9 render device for HP2, based on the UT DirectX 9 render device.

Posted by on

This version of the renderer has been in our discord for almost a year now, I decided to post it on moddb to give users another choice against the unfinished DX11 renderer.

What this renderer offers:

  • 100% working stock effects: things like Lumos work exactly how they work in the stock game
  • Improved performance: On most machines, this renderer will run better than the DX7 renderer, and most certainly better than the DX11 one
  • Support for Anistrophic Filtering and Anti Aliasing: the UT version of the renderer supported these features, and therefore this version does as well.

Generally, anything the UT version supported this one does as well. Speed and rendering quality was a major concern of mine, and I'm glad it looks and plays the best with this driver now.

What you don't get:

  • Custom shaders
  • Custom textures
  • Replacement textures
  • Etc.

This driver is just meant as a better looking and better performing driver so users have a better stock choice than the default DX7 driver, which works horribly on the newest graphics cards, including an issue with AMD RX 5700 series cards.
