3D-Tech News Around The Web / ReShade 4.9.0 released
« Last post by JeGX on January 05, 2021, 02:13:56 PM »
ReShade is a generic post-processing injector for games and video software. Imagine your favorite game with ambient occlusion, real depth of field effects, color correction and more. ReShade exposes an automated and generic way to access both frame color and depth information (latter is automatically disabled during multiplayer to prevent exploitation) and all the tools to make it happen.

Added effect caching
Compiled effects are now cached to disk, so that subsequent loads can use the cached data to speed up loading significantly. By default the cache is stored in %TEMP%, so that it can be shared across all ReShade installations. To override the location, change the "IntermediateCachePath" option under "[GENERAL]" in ReShade.ini . There is a new button on the Settings tab to clear the cache (sometimes necessary to ensure changes to effect files are applied).
Added support for D3D12on7 (ReShade now works in Cyberpunk 2077 on Windows 7)
Added depth buffer copy before clear in OpenGL (depth buffer detection now works in Minecraft)
Added ReShade FX support for rectangular matrices and integer matrix multiplication
Added error to log when trying to capture screenshot for 16-bit back buffer (which is not supported)
Added option to move all techniques from an effect file simultaneously in the UI technique list by pressing the shift key
Added text logging for some common back buffer formats
Added debug names to D3D11 and D3D12 objects in release builds to simplify debugging with the debug layers
Added option to filter application list in setup tool using custom search terms (start typing into the text box at the bottom of the application list to filter it)
Added warning message box to setup tool when enabling global Vulkan layer
Improved HLSL and GLSL loop code generation for simple condition expressions
Improved general frame update performance slightly
Changed editor window to support opening multiple tabs pointing to different files
Changed logging to use Win32 API directly (to allow multiple editors to open the log simultaneously)
Changed texture pooling to not share textures within the same effect file
Fixed local network traffic (on localhost) counting towards the network detection heuristic
This means that depth buffer detection is no longer blocked in games that run local servers in single player, like in Minecraft
Fixed mouse cursor being locked in a small portion of the screen in some games
Fixed corrupted depth data in D3D12 apps (e.g. Cyberpunk 2077)
Fixed ReShade not showing up in D3D9 apps that do not have an override window set for presentation (e.g. MPC-HC)
Fixed progress bar for compiling effects not actually showing any progress
Fixed enabling an effect not auto-selecting the relevant tab in the variable list if the tab UI is used instead of the tree UI
Fixed disabling "Load only enabled effects" option not reloading skipped effects
Fixed potential crash when an INI file is loaded while effects are still being loaded
Fixed OpenGL context creation using incorrect profile flags when game is using OpenGL 3.0 or 3.1
Fixed OpenGL compatibility flag not being set in some cases for legacy contexts
Fixed global app config options being read from wrong section in DXGI
Fixed D3D11 texture description not being overwritten for "ID3D11Device3::CreateTexture2D1" calls
Fixed "vkDestroyDevice" hook not being called
Fixed hook error logged on Windows 7 when "CreateDXGIFactory2" is called
Fixed it being possible to move variable editor splitter outside window area
Fixed preprocessor hanging when encountering macro with an unterminated argument list
Fixed duplicate sample and storage references in effect passes
Fixed crash if an invalid sampler or storage is referenced in effect pass
Fixed setup tool exception when extracting repository without a dedicated "Textures" directory
Renamed screenshot config section to "SCREENSHOT" instead of "SCREENSHOTS" (setup tool will update your config automatically)
Renamed depth buffer detection related config options to all reside within a "DEPTH" section instead of separate "D3D9/10/11/12/OPENGL/VULKAN" sections
Renamed all references to "shaders" to "effects"
Cleaned up punctuation in log messages

With TPUCapture you can insert pix into the topic like below.

I dusted an old preGCN rig with Zacate APU/Ontario GPU from 2011 using Crimson 15.11 driver.
Temperature is normal with either old or new GPUShark.
Looks like a particular Devastator GPU issue.

Try TPUCapture

Also double-check with GPU-Z for comparison
I can not attach screenshot to the post.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan API specifications 1.2.166 released
« Last post by Stefan on January 04, 2021, 02:15:01 PM »
Change log for January 4, 2021 Vulkan 1.2.166 spec update:

  * Update release number to 166 for this update.

Github Issues:

  * Add an Issue to the appendix for `<<VK_EXT_debug_report>>` discussing
    how to compare handles returned by the debug report callback to
    application handles (public issue 368).
  * Specify the purpose of ename:VK_LOD_CLAMP_NONE in the description of
    slink:VkSamplerCreateInfo::pname:maxLod (public issue 663).
  * Clarify in the <<extendingvulkan-extensions-extensiondependencies,
    Extension Dependencies>> section that extensions may depend on both
    other extensions, and specific core API versions. Together with previous
    changes to this section, this should close out the original issue
    (public issue 865).

Internal Issues:

  * Add descriptions of image queries to the <<textures, Image Operations
    Overview>> and <<textures-queries, Image Query Instructions>> sections
    (internal issues 2416 and 2423).
  * Allow axis swapping to be carried through clamping in the
    <<primsrast-fragment-shading-rate-combining, Combining the Fragment
    Shading Rates>> section (internal issue 2420).
  * Move even-size requirements for planar formats to valid usage statements
    for slink:VkImageCreateInfo and slink:VkImageViewCreateInfo, and tweak
    descriptions of <<formats-definition, the corresponding formats>>
    accordingly (internal issue 2434).
  * Remove asciidoctor conditional macros from markup for
    slink:VkSamplerCreateInfo valid usage statement 01079 (internal issue
  * Clarify behavior of the <<features-alphaToOne, pname:alphaToOne>>
    feature by linking the enable to the corresponding <<fragops-covg,
    Multisample Coverage>> fragment operation language, and specifying in
    the introduction to the <<fragops, Fragment Operations>> chapter that
    "`replacing`" a fragment shader output occurs whether or not the shader
    actually wrote that output (internal issue 2448).
  * Modify XML for
    to allow pname:viewportCount == 0 (internal issue 2449).
  * Remove "`built as`" requirement from valid usage statement 03579 for
    slink:VkWriteDescriptorSetAccelerationStructureKHR (internal issue
  * Remove incorrect valid usage statement 03655 for
    slink:VkAccelerationStructureGeometryTrianglesDataKHR (internal issue
  * Add location limits for mesh shaders to the
    <<interfaces-iointerfaces-limits, Shader Input and Output Locations>>
    table (internal merge request 3428).
