    Actually, your request has prompted us to start cataloguing all the DirectX 12 games we already have on the wiki: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_Graphics_APIs If you want to help, just follow the instructions on the page, and create a wiki page if a game on the Wikipedia list isn't on the site. (If you need help creating a wiki page, reach out to us either in this thread or, for more immediate help, on Discord.)

    MobyGames

    In the area under the game cover art there are links to Wikipedia, SteamDB, Wine... and other stuff. I recommend to add MobyGames there too, since Wikipedia is a general online encyclopedia and MobyGame is basically an online encyclopedia for video games and people often already add the links to it in the general info section. Many old obscure and less known games don't have a Wikipedia page, but I have yet to find an old game without a MobyGames page.

    Borderlands Configuration Editor

    This particular software seems to be picked up by antivirus software for some reason. An alternative 'Borderlands Advance Settings' on this github may be a better alternative, as it has been updated more recently.

    Played around a bit in Firefox's inspector tool. If we solely plan to keep this limited to "alternative sources" of obtaining access to games right now, then I can whip up an extension to the Availability template, and add notes to boot. Example mockup: Base source code, so I don't forget it ๐Ÿ˜… <tr class="template-infotable-head"> <th scope="col" style="width: 230px;">Alternative sources</th> <th scope="col" style="width: 50px;"> </th> <th style="width: 540px;" scope="col" colspan="3">Notes</th> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Xbox Play Anywhere</abbr></th> <td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-true"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Does not apply to the 2016 re-release.</td> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Xbox Game Pass</abbr></th><td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-true"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Comes pre-packaged with cosmetics DLCs.</td> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Origin Access Basic</abbr></th> <td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-false"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Limited to 10-hour trial.</td> </tr><tr class="template-infotable-body"> <th scope="row"><abbr title="asdsad">Origin Access Premier</abbr></th> <td><div title="Native support" class="svg-icon svg-25 tickcross-true"></div> </td> <td colspan="3">Deluxe Edition</td> </tr>

    The existence of this template and the attempt to now track Game Pass titles (a subscription service that adds and removes games in its catalog every now and then) have made me question whether we shouldn't opt for a more generic template instead that's designed to be extended for whatever supplementary feature might come up. Something like this basically: {{Store features | microsoft store game pass = true | microsoft store play anywhere = true | origin access = | origin access premier = true }} which would then create a list like this: {{ii}} Included in Xbox Game Pass subscription service. {{ii}} Xbox Play Anywhere title; purchase it on either Microsoft Store on Windows 10 or Xbox, and receive copies for both platforms. {{ii}} Included in Origin Access Premier subscription service. If this was then used below the availability row, you'd have an easy placement where the list could grow naturally as features was determined as necessary to add to the template. Edit: The obvious negative downside of this is that it wouldn't allow us to include it in the Availability table unless we redesigned that entirely and added new parameters to it.

    Because we don't currently have a good way to handle these sorts of supplementary features, I opted to create a new template that allows setting these properties and embeds the results in a {{ii}} bullet point, with the intention of the template being used just below the availability table. The reason why I opted for this and not the Notes section of the availability table was because I believe the field can otherwise become quite lengthy in text if there's other notes that needs to be mentioned there. That said, all that needs to be changed for the template to be compatible and used directly in the Notes field is the removal of the {{ii}} bullet point, and nothing else. Preview: Properties: Property:Microsoft Store Game Pass Property:Microsoft Store Play Anywhere Templates: Template:Microsoft Store features Template:Microsoft Store features/Documentation

    Rumour is that Xbox games will have a single binary that runs on Xbox/PC, making this property even more important:

    It was deleted from wikipedia many months ago. I have a copy of the last entry. I've cleaned it up and added a few titles that I know of since then but I can't keep up with all the new DX12 releases. Is it allowed to add the list to this wiki?

    References should go in the "direct3d notes" field, and not the "direct3d versions" field, of the API template. The "direct3d notes" field is limited to only supported values, as anything else will screw up the backend connections. Only remove listings if you've actually confirmed that they do not support DirectX 12 on your own, or you find a concrete source mentioning that it doesn't. PCGW generally assumes that edits are accurate despite a lack of reference, so to remove ones that are "suspicious" you'll have to find a concrete source confirming the suspicions. Feel free to add {{cn}} in the notes field to flag that a citation is needed, though.

    Both play anywhere and game pass seem like properties for windows store. In turn, windows store may also intertwine/equal to UWP (of especial note if we consider it a separate OS platform), but it's OT for this thread imo.

    Are you putting the reference in the "direct3d versions note" section? Putting it directly with the version number is going to cause more issues than just not showing up on the DX12 list. Also, out of prudence, I would label any suspect API listings using the {{cn}} (Citation Needed) tag in the same way you would place a reference for a particular API version. If it goes too long without the API listing being confirmed, a wiki user will delete it.

    Thanks for your post eddmanx - we've renamed the page here and in the future we could add more graphics APIs: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/List_of_games_that_run_on_DirectX_12 Are there any missing from the list?

    TL;DR The DirectInputFpxFix fixes an input related FPS drop/slowdown problem that occurs in FEAR, its expansions, Condemned: Criminal Origins and other games. It is easy to install and does not require manual disabling of HID devices. Quick start guide: Extract the file dinput8.dll to the folder containing the executable of the game. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FEAR Ultimate Shooter Edition" Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or GOG Galaxy. Features The DirectInputFpsFix fixes a bug that causes the FPS to severely drop after a few minutes of play. This problem is probably most widely known in regards to the game FEAR and often occurs in conjunction with the usage of Logitech devices. However, the problem also crops up in other games using the same engine, such as the FEAR expansions or Condemned: Criminal Origins and with non-Logitech hardware configurations. A similar problem has also been reported to occur in other titles, like Prototype. Although this issue can often be fixed by disabling most/all HID-Devices in the device manager, it is bothersome to do so and lately some people reported that that solution does not even work at all anymore, especially on machines running Windows 10. Instructions Supported Games The fix is agnostic towards the game that uses it and should therefore work with all versions of a supported game, including the Steam, GOG and retail versions. Confirmed:FEAR and its expansions Condemned: Criminal Origins [*]Supposedly: Prototype Kane & Lynch: Dead Men Feel free to provide feedback if the DLL works on other games as well. Install The fix does not make any permanent changes to the game or to Windows and can easily be removed. Extract the file dinput8.dll to the folder containing the executable of the game. For example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FEAR Ultimate Shooter Edition"* Start the game like you would normally, for example directly through Steam or GOG Galaxy. *Note that for the FEAR expansions the fix also has to be installed into the corresponding sub-folder of the game Uninstall Rename or remove the dinput8.dll from the folder of the game. Known Issues There are currently no known issues with the fix. Additional Information Antivirus Software Since this mod consists of an executable DLL file that uses "hacking techniques" such as injection and hooking, it could be classified as malicious by antivirus software. In that case, it might be necessary to add an exception rule to the scanner. If you lack the trust in random people on the internet -- and I would not blame you -- feel free to use a meta online virus scanner like VirusTotal to verify the file. Loading Other Fixes/Mods/Injectors To increase the compatibility with other mods or injectors that are using a wrapper DLL, this fix offers two methods for remote loading of additional files. Note that there might still be compatibility issues between the different fixes, mods or injectors that have nothing to do with the loading process. File method: The mod will load another dinput8.dll automatically if it has the name dinput8.dll. Just rename the DLL you want to load accordingly. Using this method will lead to an error if the renamed DLL is not itself a dinput8.dll. Folder method: The mod will also automatically load all DLLs regardless of their names in a dinput8 sub-directory. Just create a corresponding folder in the install directory of the mod. This is the only way to load multiple (conflicting) files. How This Works The fix is implemented using a common technique known as DLL hooking. User input in games like FEAR can be realized via DirectInput, an API by Microsoft for interacting with HID-Devices. The library is ancient and should no longer be used today, because there are other ways to get mouse and keyboard input, especially for games. The FPS drops happen because the thread that runs DirectInput massively slows down after a while (as can be seen in tools like ProcessExplorer). If an application uses a library like DirectInput, it needs a so-called DLL (dynamic-link library) where the functionality of the library is stored. In many cases, especially for libraries provided by Microsoft, these DLLs usually reside in the Windows folder. However, there is an order of how an application searches for the DLLs it needs. Since the DLL of the fix gets copied into the main folder of the application and has the same name of a DLL needed by the game (the one of DirectInput), it gets loaded instead of the one in the Windows folder. This means that all calls to DirectInput go through the Hook-DLL and can either be directed to the original DLL in the Windows folder or changed as necessary. This also allows some insight in how exactly the library is used by the game. It turned out that some games not only unnecessarily register all HID-devices, they also call several functions every frame that usually only should be called once during initialization. The latter seems to apply only to devices that are not keyboards or mice. This eventually leads to circumstances where a lot of time is spent opening and closing device connections. The fix changes the DirectInput initialization in such a way that only keyboard and pointer devices get registered.

    About This patch is intended to solve certain issues that occur on modern systems, related to game's usage of ancient DirectX APIs. It also enables the game to run via dgVoodoo DirectX wrapper. The main goal of this patch was to get the game running properly on all machines I have at home, which have graphics cards of all popular vendors (NVIDIA, AMD and Intel) and running Windows 10. The following changes have been implemented: Pass DDCREATE_EMULATIONONLY for DirectDraw objects used for intro cinematics, prevents the Fatal error message on startup or black screen during cinematics, depending on graphics drivers. Call SetAppCompatData(12, 0) in ddraw.dll to disable maximized windowed mode on Windows 8 and above, allows the game to run in real fullscreen mode on those systems and restores ability to change gamma with F2 and F3 keys. Delay execution of DllMain logic of rendering libraries to the point when the LoadLibrary call returns (startup hang prevention and dgVoodoo compatibility). Included registry fix which disables Windows' interfering with the game, launcher. This interference can make the game crash or not start when ran through launcher under certain circumstances. Installation Files in this archive were tested with retail version of the game, they may work with other versions, just make sure neither sft8lib.dll, D3D6Lib.dll or D3D7Lib.dll are present in the root game folder, the patch bundles updated ones in data\Stealth\Render and having the old ones in the root folder overriding the new ones is a recipe for disaster. It's also recommended to setup the game to use dgVoodoo 2 wrapper for the best experience, though it's not mandatory. Extract the contents of Soulbringer folder into your own, overwriting original files. Apply Disable_Soulbringer_Compat_Fixes.reg registry fix which takes care of launcher issues. This may not take effect until you right-click on Soulbringer.exe, go to compatibility tab and click OK to cause Windows to register new settings. If you're not going to use dgVoodoo with the game, you should set Reduced color mode (8-bit) on all game executables' Compatibility tab (Soulbringer.exe, SoulbringeVC.exe, SoulbringeVCnoeax.exe), it won't actually downgrade the colors, but it allows for rendering modes enumeration to work properly. This is only needed on Windows 8 and above. If you want software mode to not have garbled colors without dgVoodoo, apply Soulbringer_Palette_Fix_x86.reg (32-bit Windows) or Soulbringer_Palette_Fix_x64.reg (64-bit Windows). Note that the software mode doesn't work on Windows 8 and above without dgVoodoo. Launch Soulbringer, click Video, make sure any DX6 option is selected then choose the desired game resolution. The ones with 4:3 aspect ratio are the best given that game can't deal with wider aspect ratios. Other modes can work, but run too fast without forcing VSYNC (60 Hz) or capping frame-rate to 60 FPS. Click Advanced and make sure the EAX option is disabled unless you're sure you have a working setup that supports running DirectSound3D games with EAX effects and EAX Unified is installed. Additional notes There is a strange issue with game on Windows 8 and above, it doesn't pick up on all rendering modes unless Reduced color mode (8-bit) is selected from its Compatibility tab under Properties. When run for the very first time, it works though. It always works properly when run through dgVoodoo. Contrary to what the game ReadMe says, DX6 mode actually seems to run faster than DX7 and doesn't have the problem activating VSYNC to keep the FPS at 60. Running too fast makes the game glitchy. The downside, text is blurry, needs some sort of fix related to texel alignment, ATI specific fix is called Altertnate Pixel Centers, PixelCenter (31 00 00 00) setting in registry, no idea how to set it on application basis on today's drivers, irrevelant solution for NVIDIA and Intel, doesn't work with dgVoodoo neither. Future version of dgVoodoo may have a fix for that. With recent NVIDIA drivers, without using dgVoodoo, game may hang when tabbing out, press CTRL + ALT + DEL, then ESC to get to the desktop.

    This fixes the following issues with Gothic and Gothic II on Windows 8 and later: Window border visible in fullscreen mode Low frame rate in fullscreen mode Extract anywhere and run install.bat to apply these fixes. Any previous versions are automatically replaced if present. This works by applying the following compatibility fixes to Gothic.exe, Gothic2.exe and GothicMod.exe: ForceSimpleWindow (hides window border) DXPrimaryEmulation -DisableMaxWindowedMode (fixes frame rate isssues) This fix does not remove Gothic's default frame rate cap; refer to its page for a separate fix for that issue. This fix will also work with Gothic Multiplayer (other mods that change the executable might not be affected).

    I don't think this is really the case any longer, based on my testing with my Hi-Res Audio certified DAC and headset. That DAC have a visual indicator that showcases what sample rate and bit depth, and in shared mode it will _always_ output as the selected format according to what I've selected in the Advanced tab of the output device (24 bit, 96 000 Hz). In exclusive mode through WASAPI it'll output whatever format is configured in the player, regardless of the source itself (tested and verified using Foobar2k and the foo_out_wasapi plugin.
