As part of the work of continuing to accompany previously announced changes come EVE OnlineNetwork infrastructure, DirectX 9 support will end in January. The move to 64-bit clients is part of changes that set the game apart for years to come Future. Therefore, January 11 will be the last date for DirectX 9 support.
The intention to discontinue support for DirectX 9 was indeed made in 2016, but the work to get ready to really change and move forward now is here. Support will officially end for Windows clients. NS Newly released Mac client uses Apple’s Metal technology, so this makeover of the older technology is only available to PC players with older systems. .
For those who are capable of running DirectX 11 on their systems, this is the recommended direction from the CCP team. In fact, if you have the ability to run DirectX 11, on November 30th existing players with systems above the new minimum specification will automatically be migrated to the DirectX 11 client. having problems and are on an older system, you will have a temporary window to use DirectX 9 if needed until the end date. DirectX 11 has been supported for over a decade, so most people won’t be affected by this change, but CCP knows they have a community full of people who have been around for a long time, so we can consider this a grace period.
When it comes EVE Online, Change is consistent, even if it can take time to go from implementation to community disclosures, and deeper into implementation. But CCP works to keep things moving while ensuring most players in the community can still continue to venture in New Eden.
