d912pxy (DirectX 12 upgrade for GW2)

That's a shame for the arena net team, One person alone can port the GW2 from the old and obsolete DX9 to the newer DX12! thing that the whole arena net team still hasn't gotten!
Improving my fps average from 20 to 40 in battlegrounds! and over 50fps in the open world! making the game playable today! with the latest hardware!
The least you anera NET should do now is to add this MOD dx12 to the default game, as it is perfectly operational (and make a good donation to the creator of the mod! For doing your work).
Here is my thanks for "megai2" for the amazing job with port GW2 to DX 12! You same many guys like me!
And here goes my disappointment with the arena net team, you want my money with micro transactions, but there is not the slightest interest in improving my gameplay!

If a person alone can do it, how can you not?


  • Hold your horses, the author of d912pxy didn't port the entire engine. The project maps dx9 calls into dx12 which in turn leads to better performance.

    As has already been mentioned many times, a full port would be a much more complicated and very expensive task.

  • Even the developer of the mod has pointed out that they are offering a kludge, not a port. They don't have to make sure it's stable in all situations.

    there is not the slightest interest in improving my gameplay!

    Do some more research before making such claims. ANet has done all sorts of things to improve game performance (presumably what you meant). Some of the efficiencies have gone into displaying more effects or making them look better. Some have been to add options to tone down GFX. Some have gone into improved network resiliency.

    More importantly, ANet has extensively vetted the idea of accommodating DX12 and has determined that it would cost a lot, without offering enough people enough of a performance gain to make it worthwhile.

    I'm not saying you need to agree with their choice. They haven't, for example, gone into detail about what they might work on instead. Their decision to choose differently doesn't mean they have no interest; it just means that they don't agree with your analysis.
