To be fair, I've not actually tried that yet - all the shader stuff I'm doing at the moment only needs the FP & VP30 profiles, but I can't see why the new profiles *wouldn't* work.

EDIT: This is no longer just a suspicion. I just loaded up the NVSDK, and a good proportion of the "GeForce 6 only" demos (i.e., SM 3.0 required) are OpenGL based.

As to the original question, couldn't say whether R:TW will be DX or OpenGL, but I'd guess strongly at DX.

sm3.0 in opengl? i didnt know that! thanks... i learn something new everyday.
