DX7 to Dx8

Is there any tutorial for replacing dx7 with dx8?

Thank you

No, but I’d love for someone to give one, it’s be AMAZING

DirectX 8 is a completely different framework to it’s previous version. To upgrade to it would require a complete rewrite of the graphics engine. Not an easy task, even for the more experienced Eclipse programmers.

There is no easy DX7 to DX8 tutorial here. Though, I’m pretty sure copying over the rendering module from a DX8 (like Eo 3.0) do a DX7 engine (like EO 2.0) would mostly. Sure, they’d be a decent number of compile errors, but if you get rid of most of the redundant code and fix the compile errors and such, then I’m supposing it’ll work.
