Porting DirectX 12 games to Windows 7

Quote:
We announced “World of Warcraft uses DirectX 12 running on Windows 7” back in March. Since that time, we have received warm welcome from the gaming community, and we continued to work with several game studios to further evaluate this work.

To better support game developers at larger scales, we are publishing the following resources to allow game developers to run their DirectX 12 games on Windows 7. Please post technical question or feedback to our Discord channel at DirectX.
We would like to thank the development community for their help in evolving the DirectX 12 technology, and we have been so excited to work with game developers to bring the benefits of DirectX 12 to all their customers. Please keep the feedback coming!

It's probably because a lot of gamers use Discord.

Which is lame, because IRC has always been the way to go. The things over the years that have attempted to replace IRC were often outlived by trusty (still existent, obviously) IRC.

The only thing IRC is better at is being able to host your own servers instead of having another party itself (in this case, Discord) to host it for you. Discord is better in every other way.

...Except that Discord looks like a kiddy, 2010s attempt at making a chatroom. Very gaudy.

I'd actually chose Team Speak over Discord, but that's just me. And I do run a TS server anyway so I guess I'm partial to it. I've talked to my friend from here in Colorado all the way to Perth, Australia and it sounded just like a normal phone conversation. I even had encryption turned on. Plus, I was using the TS App on my phone to connect to my TS server and used my Bluetooth earpiece.

I suppose you could do the same with Discord, especially if they have an App. Don't know if you can run your own Discord server at home though where you have control. I never did care for the Discord interface though.
