What's the best option for playing with DirectX 12 from .NET?  I think SharpDX has implemented support for DX12, but I have more experience using SlimDX.  Did the SlimDX DX12 version ever happen?  I remember hearing some plans here about it.

The biggest Pro for SlimDX by my opinion is, that it works fine with VB.NET. SharpDX does not support VB.NET because they messsed up some case sensitive exports. Another big point are projects which are already done in SlimDX. So @promit, pleeeeaasse continue your great work! :rolleyes:

That's the second time someone's asked this week. I haven't worked with SharpDX so I can't speak to that experience apart from where he used our code -_- But I felt that duplicating his work was not necessarily productive. If that's really not the case, and people really want a hand written SlimDX-based wrapper, then I'll see if I can pull something together.

 
Just a little bit more context for the readers about what Promit implies by "used our code", as one may come to the simplified conclusion that SharpDX is a copy of SlimDX or it "robbed" their code:

 

And just to make sure everything's clear, I'm just teasing. SlimDX was MIT licensed specifically so that people could borrow and slice the code as they saw fit.

Because "kidding" about something so serious as potential plagiarism and telling people about it who have no context to form and informed opinion on is SUCH a great idea. (That was sarcasm, it's not).
