Developer Joshua Ashton has just today released another build of D9VK code-named 'Frog Cookie', further polishing this D3D9 to Vulkan layer that was forked from DXVK.

Included in this release are multiple performance improvements, new fixed function support, multiple new D3D9 features added in and supported including one needed for Undertale, along with little something for Unreal Engine 3 titles so hopefully they should work better. Plenty of bugs were eaten up for this release too—something about Frogs?

You can find the full release notes here. Seriously exciting work!

As a reminder, D9VK is already available in the recent builds of Proton for Steam Play, although you do need to manually enable it. You can do this by adding "PROTON_USE_D9VK=1 %command%" as a launch option for each game. Now that a new release of D9VK is out, it's probable the next release of Proton will pull it in.

I'm looking forward to more testing of Rocket League with it as it was very impressive. If you've been testing D9VK, do let us know in the comments how you've been getting on and what titles you've enjoyed it with. I'm keen to hear your experiences with it.

D9VK works really great for me and the improvements made in this short period are impressive.

Yey, my 3 repoted bugs (ground texture, fixed fog functions and dirty distance view) made it in there! Very pleased! Besides some lightning issues we (he) solved. I just reported :-).

Grats Josh, impressive work as always!

ShmerlSo when is it going to be merged back into dxvk?

Will be done. There have been discussions on that already. I think once they consider D9VK feature complete that's when it will happen. It's not feature complete yet.

Boiling Point and Psi Ops in the same sentence; do you watch TehSnakerer on Youtube by chance?

Apparently Gothic3 forsaken gods ee should be fixed also but I can't test it due to no GPU.
