Playing the Game Silent Hunter 5 in Stereo 3D with 3D Vision

March 8th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


The game Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic is a sequel to the popular submarine simulation series. In this game you’ll be behind the periscope of a German Type VII U-boat with the goal to attack the Allied Forces in different famous battles across the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. in the fifth game you can finally relive the life of a submarine captain from a first-person view completely controlling the crew and the U-boat. You can say that this game is a must for every submarine simulator fan and the good news is that you can take the level of realism even further by playing the game in stereoscopic 3D mode with the help of 3D Vision…

However as of the moment there is still no official profile for the game available in the 3D Vision driver and you need to tweak the convergence by hand in order for the game to be playable in stereo 3D mode. Of course I’ve prepared custom convergence settings that can help you skip the part where you have to find the right settings by yourself, you can download the file from the link below. You should also disable the Environmental Effects from the game Options menu for best results as when they are active you may notice some weird visual defects in stereo 3D, for example in the water waves around the submarine. If shadows look weird and annoy you inside the submarine you may also want to lower them from the Options until they seem comfortable or completely disable them. Also have in mind that during the cutscenes the stereoscopic 3D effect seems to be gone, although they do not seem to be pre-rendered movies, but after they end it is back again. Increasing brightness a bit might help you in night missions when everything is already dark as the active shutter glasses make these scenes seem even darker. As usual please let me know how these settings work for you in the comments below.
