d9vk, from developer Joshua Ashton who works for both CodeWeavers and the game developer Puny Human, is a new personal project aimed at running Direct3D 9 over Vulkan.
If the name isn't familiar, Ashton was also working on the DXUP project which had an aim of getting D3D9 and D3D10 over to D3D11 to use with DXVK. However, when speaking to Ashton earlier, they told me they decided to go with forking DXVK as they wanted to make use of different parts of DXVK that could be reused, rather than reinventing the whole wheel again.
Obviously it's very early days for the project, so in terms of goals, Ashton told me they're going to be working through getting "clear and present working, then some basic shaders with some geometry and then games".
Interesting to see more and more projects like this appear, it's pretty exciting as the more games we can get working on Linux (and performing well) the better.
