Nvidia has announced that part of its free and open source RTX Remix modding platform is available for download starting today. The RTX Remix runtime will allow modders to quickly dive into their favorite classic DirectX 8 and DirectX 9 PC games and easily add modern lighting and textures to existing game assets, saving a lot of time and effort.
RTX Remix allows a modder to capture a game scene and then swap out assets in real time, “bringing RTX technologies into the game” such as tracing, DLSS 3, Nvidia Reflex, and AI-enhanced textures. The updated assets can then be exported to various developer applications such as Unreal Engine, Blender, and Nvidia Omniverse applications.
The full capabilities of the Remix feature are listed here.
