USE of 3D Glasses in SFP1

Recommended Posts


Ranger, I have had these glasses for quite a while. let me give it a try too.

 

First, I don't use the drivers or programs that come with the glasses. Go to Edimensoinal and get their prgrams and go to Nvidia for their drivers. Things will go much better.

 

Anyhoo, after you set them up, if you use them for Strike Fighters, heres what you will get. An INCREDIBLE 3-D experience. Strike Fighters is made using major 3d components, and this shows up very very well. I would have to say that MFS 2002, Janes WWII Fighters, Falcon 4 and Strike Fighters are the best flight sims out there for the 3-D glasses. The instrument panels individual dials stick out, the canopy frames give really good depth, and the canopy reflections give you a sensation of being surrounded by Persplex. Smoke has depth, as does other planes you are chasing.

 

Now, the downside. 3-D glasses, because of the drivers they use, are a MAJOR frames per second hit. Look to get half or a little more than half the fps that you would normally get. On some systems, it will become a slide show, on upper end systems you might be ok.

 

OK, personally, I have taken off my 3-D drivers and gone back to the 41.09, which don't support 3-d. If I was going to a con, then I might put them back on to show off, but for day to day flying, I don't use them, because I like to use higher resolutions.

 

In all, a great sensation, just make sure you have a system that can handle them and still run smoothly in higher resolutions.

Great writeup. I might add thougt the you get a "funky" looking RWR

will post pic later,its still usable,but looks lok a "discoball".

also works best at 85 in monitor settings.,with the drivers included in the set for the best 3D effect you get "crappy" hud(two complet images)

but all external views are fantastic.

 

 

you mentioned a different driver source were is the url for it?

 

here is the cockpit view notice RWR

Get it at www.nvidia.com, and look in the driver section for the 3-D glasses supported drivers. They are the most update.

 

I use the nvidia drivers because it gives you a seperate tab on your video preferences that lets you tweak your glasses for each resolution seperately. I also set up my hot keys there for tweaking the 3-d seperation in game. Some games are preset, but I don't thnk SF is.

 

You have to tweak in game a little to make sure you have it at what you are comfy with.

Have those but was reffering to this

" Go to Edimensoinal and get their prgrams and go to Nvidia for their drivers. Things will go much better. "

The company that makes the "3-D" glasses, not Edimentional but the ones that make those particular glasses, has an absolutely terrible interface. There should be some program AND the Nvidia drivers at the Edimentional site. You may have to do a google.

Good luck, just remember that nvidia drivers can be wierd. With the glasses supported drivers, I think you can apply them with your existing drivers. If not, just uninstall the current drivers and install the glasses supported drivers.

 

After installing, look in your video preferences and look for the tab to tweak your glasses.

 

I got the wired glasses, cause I had the non wired glasses before, and they are too fragile.
