DAEMON X MACHINA™

Summary

Daemon X Machina is currently in a playable state utilizing the OpenGL and Vulkan API. However, only the Vulkan API shows the proper text in-game and through the menus.

Encountered Issues:

  • OpenGL specific:
  • Menu text is missing and makes navigating the entire menu system extremely difficult.
  • Major textures and some effects are missing in and out of gameplay.
  • Some slight slowdowns occur when specific enemies known as “Immortals” appear on screen in two or more quantities.
  • Vulkan specific:
  • Major textures and some effects are missing in and out of gameplay.
  • Game can freeze when facing two or more enemy “Immortals”. The slowdown experienced during this encounter is more than OpenGL.
