Unofficial 3D Vision Fix for the Game Mass Effect 3 Now Available

March 6th, 2012 · 5 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


The game Mass Effect 3 should start rolling in the US today and will be available in the rest of the world in the next few days and unfortunately it will apparently not be great when played in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision as hinted by the demo released a while ago. The good news for the stereo 3D gamers out there is that the community is already quite ahead in resolving the issues that the game has in stereo 3D mode and there is already a fix addressing most of the problems that the demo had (it is based on the demo version). The fixes are based on the DirectX 9 wrapper developed by Helix and he is also taking an active part in modifying literally hundreds of shaders in the game for proper stereo 3D rendering. Of course when the full game is released there will probably be a need for more things to be modified, but most of the work is probably done already. So download the 3D Vision fix while waiting for the full game to become available and if you find any other issues, please make a savegame and share it with information about the issue, so that additional fixes could be added. This way we might be able to get the Mass Effect 3 to a 3D vision-ready state not from the developer, but thanks to the efforts of the stereo 3D gaming community.

    Awesome job thanks for getting the word out bloody! Still new and its sad to say most 3d vision users will probably try 3d vision then see it doesnt work then. Just go 2d.
    Please if your gonna help helix out either use save game to find the issue or the debugger(preferable) and post on our main thread. http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=222386&st=0 . Please care for what you say because maybe some of us who are on thread are not as far into game/played it yet “SPOILERS”. Helix did this so everyone can enjoy the game more. Thanks.
