Is there a TODO or similar documentation on D3D8 & 9 for Wine? I don't
necessarily have much background in DirectX. Last time I used it was
when DirectX 3.0 was brand spanking new and was all the rave. I'm
willing to work, but don't know where to start and am limited on time
available to search for it. If someone has already begun some
organization of this, like a hit-list or something, that would be quite

Also, does anybody know what the status is compared to WineX/Cedega? Do
they have a more fully featured shader implementation? What's there
status/policy on porting back to Wine?

Any work that I do will fall right back in the Wine repo.
