Vulcan and Win 10

A catch-all forum for topics not directly related to NTHUSIM.

Hi Brad.
Doom (2016) recently rolled out support for the new Vulcan API with significant performance increases. Any chance for Nthusim Vulcan support In the future? Currently with Vulcan selected the game will not launch with Nthusim open (unsurprisingly).
Also do you have a rough eta for Win10 desktop blending support? Still rocking 8.1 atm but looking forward to upgrading when this goes live.
Thanks Tezza.

At the moment development is centered around catching up with Windows 10, WDDM 2.0 and DirectX 12. The dilemma in trying to sell Vulcan support for Nthusim is that our major core game titles at least one would need to be using it, or if one of ImmersaView's military or industrial contractors were doing something with Vulcan. I'd like to see both Vulcan and previously Mantle implemented. I'm all for it, but at best I can only compile a list of suggestions and give guidance to the Brisbane office for each patch update. I'll definitely add it to my wishlist.
