Default Legacy HDR

A small demo, maybe others have posted this. I was just wondering what kind of HDR could be implemented on directx 8.1 type hardware. Neat demo. Kinda confirms, IMO, that pushing DX9 wasn't all that. Seeing this, the only reason to stop DX8.1 hardware from running a lite version of HDR is marketing.

Mild agnosticism 葉he view that the existence or nonexistence of God or gods is currently unknown but is not necessarily unknowable, therefore one will withhold judgment until/if more evidence is available. A weak agnostic would say "I don't know, but maybe you do."
