Is it possible to set simple fullscreen upscale?
I'm trying to tune dgVoodoo to play games based on Alien Shooter 2 engine, and I can clearly see dgVoodoo process lot of pieces separately no matter what I try.

Yes, leave DirectXExt\Resolution to 'unforced' and set the scaling mode to one of 'Stretched, * aspect ratio'. You can also choose a resampling filter by option GeneralExt\Resampling (default is bilinear).

It's DirectX\Resolution but it worked, thanks.

Here is a WIP for the sake of some recent minor fixes:

=========================
WIP87:
=========================

Changes compared to v2.79

- Broken clipping, refactored and fixed (BloodRayne 2 HUD)
- Minor D3D5/6 fix
- Fixing a D3D8/9 vertex layout bug (Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed)
- Improving Phong shading to support D3D8/9 level ops (LotR War of the Ring), but it's still not recommended
- Shader code generators changes:
* implementing missing mono rendering
* fixing a bug (Star Wars Republic Commando)

Ok, I can confirm that the Thief 2 star issue was a regression (8-bit palettized textures?) and has been fixed here.

Found out why the GM10x ended up being locked to FL11

IIRC tiled resources tier 2 ran into hangups when trying to share tiles between RTV/DSV, buffer, and normal textures. They were able to work around / emulate it in D3D11's tier 2 tiled resources, but not in D3D12's

Btw, 750ti is indeed FL11.1, somebody (I can't remember who) reported that his 750ti doesn't work with dgV D3D12 and that's why I added D3D12 FL11.0 output.

FL11.1 was supposed to be the minimum necessary for achieving 12_0, but in GM10x's case, it wasn't ok, maybe driver issues or hardware issues.
Microsoft mitigated it, GM10x got restricted to FL11

With 2.79.1 anno 1602 have issues playing Videos when i just strech window and keep aspect ratio. Even without any settings changed it has massivstutterings in videos.

The rest of the games works flawless 😀
So when the video play is fixed it would be perfect.

I don't have this game now, but I'll look into it. For now, I release the recent fixes:

It's the same as WIP88 with an additional minor fix (Blood 2).

i have question, did Direct3D has something like OpenGL GL_EXTENSIONS?
how you can spot a discontinued Direct3D functionality like "ATI TruForm" in OpenGL its easier because i can see GL_ATI_pn_triangles extension is missing, how that can be detected in Direct3D? Is there any other Direct3D discontinued functionality or extensions?

No, there are no extensions in DX (ok, there are some AMD/NV in DX9).
You can use DXCapsViewer and see if HAL\Caps\DevCaps has D3DDEVCAPS_NPATCHES. Also, HAL\Caps\MaxNPatchTesselationLevel tells the max tesselation level.

Beside of NPatches there is other discontinued functionality?

Also, I'm going to be completely inactive for a while, I need a little dgVoodoo-free period. It means that I won't fix any reported problem. 😐
