Here's another chunk of open source code that can translate directX 9 stuff into open GL. This won't compile, but there are a number of projects that will benefit. Hopefully we're not too far away from curing those windows 8/ old directdraw hangups.

Not that I know if this code would help much with that, as it was only created as a base shim layer to ease Mac and Linux porting:

Planned obsolescence is a winning, long term business strategy unfortunately. Alas, the hardware renderer on my beloved nVidia card cannot handle some older directX 8 bit texture formats.Microsoft can not even support their own old APIs?
