Cracked DirectX 10 for Windows XP?

Posted on Wednesday, April 25 2007 @ 04:30:35 CEST by

The Inquirer reports a hacker from San Diego, California claims to have created a wrapper for DirectX 10, allowing people to run it on Windows XP. Additionally he also promises a way to run Windows games on Mac OS X and Linux operating systems.
A chap called Cody Brocious from San Diego, California, claims to have started to create an wrapper for Windows executables so that they can be ran on another operating system, with no prejudice about that operating system.

A year in, the Alky Project has gone live under the cover of a company Falling Leaf Systems. Members of its Sapling Program will be able to get the wrappers for DirectX10 applications and run them not just on DX10 hardware under Windows XP, but with some DX9 hardware as well.

Although this sounds like a fairytale, Cody claims he reverse-engineered the Geometry Shader code, and that users will be able to run Windows games intended on the Mac OS X on x86-based Macinteltoshes as well as Linux.
