I don't think it will ever support DX9. DX8 already supports what Jabo needs for emulation, so I think him porting his code to DX9 won't make much of a difference. Besides, the only real benefits for DX9 are multiple render targets, builtin support for HDR, and custom HLSL pixel shaders (for cel shading and other post-processing graphics filters). And those things aren't really needed or important for emulation, when Jabo can do hardware framebuffer emulation already via DirectX8, plus other things....So basically, I don't see the point of him changing, unless cel shading is considered important for emulation lol ;D
