I posted this in the Battlefield 1942 forum, but maybe I should have posted it in technical help.  Linking, not sure if that's appropriate, but I don't post often.

Thanks @BadBadPlatypus - I bought a Radeon RX 6700 XT and didn't realize BF1942 would have an issue with it. I followed in the instructions in the link you provided and the game is playable again. Appreciate it!

Here is a link to my BF1942 ReShade 5.9.1 files and config.  Modern AMD, Intel, and Nvidia GPUs benefit from the ReShade DLL files.




The ReShade zip file below contains a modified D3D8.dll file created by someone named Dege.  The D3D8.dll is a program called dgVoodoo, that works by converting the DirectX API calls from older DirectX titles, such as BF1942, to use the newer DirectX 11 and 12 API calls.

For example, BF1942 is a DirectX 8 program, and dgVoodoo allows the user to configure the D3D8.dll file to convert the DirectX 8 API calls to DirectX 11 or 12 API calls.

ReShade is primarily used to make games look better graphically than they may by default.  The D3D8.dll dgVoodoo program may be used by itself and ReShade is not required for it to work properly.


The latest version of dgVoodoo can be found at the link below.
