I didn't yet test this game. But, it's strange it works with the WARP rasterizer. Do you have an AMD card?

Uhh, some more stuff that's hard to debug… thx btw 😀

No new version needed for this, right?

Ah, about SCCT patching.....can you enable higher resolutions for the soft shadows?

Yep, that patch is still fine. It's not about rendering but some win32 message handling.
Higher res for soft shadows? Not really… I could only do something similar to 'DirectXExt\RTTexturesForceScaleAndMSAA', meaning higher res textures only for depth buffers, but it all is very problematic, doesn't fit well to other parts of the rendering.

No cure for that, right?

Umm... what is blocked or destroyed?

DX11 supports MSAA now with deferred rendering, and a few other newer techniques that aren't used yet. SMAA and FXAA are just inferior and I too would like MSAA, TAA/TSAA looks great for still images but looks like vaseline smeared across the monitor on moving ones.

Support doesn't means that it works. All dx11 games doesn't offer msaa spport and force msaa in nvidia driver doesn't work with some dx11 games.
Force msaa with dgvoodoo 2 in dx11 game could mean possible bugs.

Yes, exactly...
Unfortunately dgVoodoo could only do the same in the background that the driver itself: forcing textures to be MSAA'ed and injecting the resolving (msaa->non-msaa) commands when needed. Not only would cause performance loss but it weren't guaranteed at all to work properly in general with various rendering techiques.
See the current state: forced MSAA via dgVoodoo can add a lot to the appearance of a particular game and works great but it's simply unusable for others with special rendering techniques.
I remember nVidia had an option on its CPL for forcing MSAA (DX9) but that didn't work well for me.
I forgot last time, but what about DSR for replacing MSAA?

The depth buffer.
In D3D9 ReShade can access it.
Wrapped to D3D11 there's no more access.

Well MSAA might not work with some games, but it may very well be fine for others. AA and other graphics technique always have some kind of performance impact, and I think it would be about the same with DSR, at least when I tested DSR with ENB (which I despise). Tons of options simply don't work in the released games, or work correctly, not sure if the shaders are just broken or what. They certainly are in for ex Skyrim SSE and were fixed by 3rd parties. It doesn't hurt to experiment and see what works and what doesn't, unless you think it would damage hardware, that wouldn't be good.

I have a Nvidia card. 1080 Ti. I thought it seemed strange how both my CPU and GPU were maxing at 100% usage when it was 1 FPS. The GPU was spiking to 100% every second though.

I've just checked out this game. I can reproduce the glitches but I cannot capture any bad frame in the graphics debugger and also didn't find any bug on dgVoodoo side.
The game also work fine on Intel and through dxvk (needed a special build for that). It seems to be an nVidia driver bug for me.

I get graphic artifacts on DXVK, Intel GPU and WARP.

I've tried to play Sam & Max (season 1, Steam) today. I have a Windows 10 Ryzen with Geforce 1050Ti.

Episode 1 worked without dgvoodoo, but I'm still wondering why.

Episode 2 and 3 only works with dgvoodoo, but they stutter badly. I think that it's something to do with the game engine, not related to dgvoodoo.

I haven't tried episodes 4, 5 and 6 (too frustrated to check them today, I'll try them when episode 2 works as intended).

I have traveled across the universe and through the years to find Her.

The Force Unleashed works but I had to bypass the launcher first.

Would it be possible to add an option to dgVoodoo to let certain exes in a directory ignore the wrapper dlls and use "passthru to real DirectX" mode instead? Some games on Steam have been mangled to the point that they can only be run through their launcher.

It seems that the game pauses for some tenths of second every time it has to load any kind of texture, animation or sound. Definitely, nothing related to dgvoodoo.

Okay, this is odd. initially RS Vegas 2 didn't pass depth info through WIP59_1 into Reshade and i was going to report that. then i go to test CT Special Forces and it did. so i went back to get screenshots of it not passing depth data through WIP59_1 in Vegas 2 and now it does. Make of that what you will but i'm just confused now.

Dead Space works now, but has really glitchy shadows.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution: Director's Cut might have had some fixes, but sadly resolution forcing seems to be very broken because of them 🙁. Seemed to work fine in WIP58.

Red Alert 3: Uprising now works with max shader quality.

Valkyria Chronicles works (duh, since it's explicitly mentioned in the changelog) and it also works with resolution forcing fixing the one high-res scaling issue the game has. It's a very minor issue though and probably not worth risking running into other wrapper issues or resolution forcing issues later in the game over.

X-Com: Enemy Unknown seems to no longer have rendering issues.
