    Default Patch 8.1.5 DirectX

    As of patch 8.1.5, there is now a new version of DirectX 11 available in the game client: Legacy.

    https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wo...details/121541

    In some brief testing, DX11 now performs sub-par for me, while DX12 and DX11 Legacy (DX11L) perform fine.

    I just wanted to point this out to everyone in case you're experiencing issues, but in the case of ISBoxer users, you may be forcing DX11 through the Game Profile attached to your Characters. If you are, then you are using a version of DX11 that may now perform poorly for you, as it does for me (both with and without Inner Space).

    So, ISBoxer users will want to update Inner Space to build 6423+ by simply restarting the program and clicking "patch these files," as well as update ISBoxer to build 42.10.0321.1 through the Help > About menu.

    Other than that, you'll probably want to make sure you're using DX11 Legacy, either through the in-game setting, or through the new Game Profile which should now be available if you updated both programs.

    Also, if you were/are using DX12, then nothing has changed.


    Also, this patch, like others, has reset your video settings, and so, assuming your hardware is capable, your game clients are defaulting to DX12 (including W7 users), which means you may also experience poor performance due to VRAM limitation.

    Finally, if you're experiencing further issues, then please take a look on the Blizzard forums, because, more than likely, it's already been asked, seeing as there has been a flood of users with issues since the servers came up.


    EDIT1: Working parameter found; instructions added.
    EDIT2: Inner Space updated.
    EDIT3: Further clarification.
    EDIT4: Another update because Lax keeps changing things.

    No problemo /Arnold

    Lax also posted a, perhaps, more detailed set of instructions (including images) for adjusting some settings above, over on the ISBoxer forum.

    Did you make sure you selected DX11 Legacy in your settings? Verify it in-game on the clients just to be sure.

    Yes, some people who are running 16GB of RAM in their machine have been reporting problems with increased RAM usage.

    I don't normally track the RAM usage of the game client(s) because I have more than enough and will likely never have an issue with running out of it. So, unfortunately, I can't say whether or not I'm seeing increased RAM usage because I don't normally track it to begin with.

    However, as Ugh pointed out, if you're using an API other than the Legacy option, then you can, most definitely, expect increased RAM usage.

    The instructions are literally the first post of this thread.

    they made the dx12 mode even more resource hungry, im on a 2080ti (11gb vram) + 32gb ram + 7900x cpu and i get some weird freezes that make clients unplayable, they have to relaunched.

    the screen gets stuck on a frame and doesn't recover. i can see that the client is still online cause the other clients can see him online, but cant recover. seems similar in a way to the bfa launch bug where innerspace would lose its "hooks" on a windows if it got the full screen transparency effect.

    For ISBoxer users, all you need to do is update Inner Space to build 6420, which is now available. Close and restart Inner Space and when it pops up and offers build 6420, click "Patch these files".

    This build forces WoW to use the DirectX 11 Legacy mode instead of DirectX 11 (though it is still allowed to use DirectX 12). Once the new DirectX 11 mode is fully supported by Inner Space (without the reported crashes, missing things, etc), I will release another update to re-enable the new DirectX 11 mode.
