Starting today, all game modders can download the new NVIDIA RTX Remix Open Beta, for free, from this location to experiment, create with, and leave feedback to help improve the experience as it moves toward full release.
There is also a detailed ‘Getting Started Guide’ available on GeForce.com.
RTX Remix Changes the Modding Game
With NVIDIA RTX Remix, NVIDIA is enabling modders to remaster their favorite classic games with full ray tracing (also known as path tracing), NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex, modern physically-based rendering (PBR) assets, and generative AI texture tools.
NVIDIA RTX Remix, built on NVIDIA Omniverse, is an end-to-end platform for remastering DirectX 8 and 9 games with fixed function pipelines. The latest set of compatible games are available on the community compatibility list on ModDB. Technical info about compatibility can be found in our Remix documentation.
Remix consists of two components: an application for creating lights and adding remastered assets into a game scene, and a runtime for capturing classic game scenes, and injecting the remastered assets back into the game at playback.
RTX Remix In Action
RTX Remix has already delivered stunning remasters in NVIDIA’s own Portal with RTX, and the modder-made Portal: Prelude RTX. Now, Orbifold Studios is using RTX Remix to develop Half-Life 2 RTX: An RTX Remix Project, a community remaster of one of the highest-rated games of all time. Check out the latest Half-Life 2 RTX gameplay trailer, showcasing their Remix updates for Ravenholm.
With the release of the RTX Remix application in Open Beta, modders can make next level RTX mods.
