I just hope ppl follow the pattern when adding to Wiki.

Coming on, coming up, let me help ROS and I'll be able to look @ a life well used.

Thats really weird, I thought OpenGL on windows just translated the commands into DirectX commands??? Good to see I didn't remember correctly!

DirectX shouldn't be a huge issue, since Cedega (the important parts are LGPL) translates DirectX commands into OpenGL commands and the same method could be used for ROS (at least till a better replacement is made).

Hopefully blight posts screenshots and a guide on how to do it!

I don't think that is the route we should go. Most of DirectX is implemented by drivers. Wine/Cedega can't use the driver implementation 'cause they can't use the manufacturers drivers. ReactOS can and should. Cut out the middle man (OpenGL), DirectX is all about speed, isn't it.

Yes

Wine does translate DirectX into OpenGL only because they cannot use the native DirectX-Drivers manufacturers provide.
Create DirectX under ROS should be much easier than on windows.

PS: Cedega isn't GPL!

it should be rather easy to implement Direct3D and DirectDraw in ROS, most calls can more or less be just redirected to the graphics drivers (if they implement it)

can you now, i dont know how, take the wine openGL implementation (wine has more or less DX9 working now!!) and integrate it into ROS so that the DX calls get translated into openGL calls? at least under wine i think this isnt a real performance problem

Sure it's possible, but wouldn't it be great if all that programming effort were saved to implement DirectX in the flesh? It would be a lot cleaner and faster that way.

we shall reinvent the wheel until it turns properly.

sure, but i think it would be implemented much faster than a newly written dx version. You could gain time, and like that you would share even more code with wine, wich is also great

If it can be quickly hacked in without a hassle, and hacked out just as easily when people want to work on a real DirectX, it could be cool. But is it the thing(tm) for ROS to do right now?
