DX11 Renderer released for Unreal & Deus Ex, supports POM, Hardware Tesselation & more

Old-school first-person shooter fans, here is something really special for you today. Modder ‘darknovismc’ has released a new version of the DirectX 11 renderer for some classic Unreal Engine games. This new renderer add some new graphical features, including support for hardware tessellation.

Going into more details, this DX11 renderer works with Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Deus Ex and Rune. These dll extensions allow you to play these games on full HD resolution with some modern-day features.

For instance, it adds support for ambient occlusion which gives realistic ambient lightning and shadownig effects. Moreover, it introduces Screen Space Reflections which imitate reflective and shiny surfaces.

Furthermore, these classic games now support hardware tesselation. In case you didn’t know, tessellation increases mesh complexity, gives smoothess and roundess to characters and game objects.

It’s also worth noting that this DX11 brings support for Parallax Occlusion Mapping. This feature adds bumpiness on near to camera surfaces. Also, it adds support for HDR in order to simulate light adaptation and add more vivid colors.

You can download this latest version of the DX11  renderer from here. Below you can also find an older video that shows Unreal Tournament with the DX11 renderer.

Have fun!
