Normally when you activate your 3D laser sight in game you play in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision each time you get an annoying green message at the bottom of your screen on a grey overlay telling you what you have just done. What this Auto Laser Crosshair user modification does is allow you when you click your right mouse button and hold it (zooming with the gun) the 3D crosshair will appear automatically without the message showing up. This is quite useful extra that will allow you to aim better trough the scope of your gun when playing in stereo 3D mode without being distracted by the information message popping up every time. Of course releasing the right mouse button can disable the 3D laser crosshair, additionally you can specify a key to be pressed while aiming that can turn off the games HUD, then as soon as you’re done aiming the games HUD turns back on (this only works if the game allows its HUD to be turned on/off via hotkey).
Of course this modification will be useful for people playing FPS games in stereo 3D mode and in single player, but thanks to Jenson who made this modification you can now have this and maybe Nvidia could think about introducing this as an official feature in the future. That is if enough people find this to be an useful feature, so feel free to share your feedback about the mod…
Here is what you need and how to install the modification:
- Download the 3dcrosshairfix.zip archive containing the installation files.
- Start by backing up the files nvstres.dll from C:/program files/nvidia corporation/3d vision/.
- Extract the modified nvstres.dll file from the archive in the folder where you have backed up the original file above.
- Then you need to restart the 3D Vision service.
- Go into Nvidia Control Panel, reassign the Show or hide 3D laser sight to . (period).
- Open the file from the archive called alc.exe and click hide.
- Now start your favorite FPS game and enjoy the extra features that mod provides.
The only side effect from using this mod is that it will remove not only the information message for the 3D laser sight, but will also remove all other overlay messages that you get from 3D Vision such as the depth adjustment slider for example.

If you have installed the latest WHQL GeForce video drivers version 295.73 you might have noticed that they no longer have support for Generic CRT mode that allows you to use an old CRT monitor in stereoscopic 3D mode. We actually got a hint that this is going to happen from the few beta video drivers made available prior to the release of 295.73, so if you still haven’t upgraded your old CRT monitor to a new 120Hz LCD display than maybe you should start thinking about it. Of course you can still use the old 285.62 driver that has support for CRT displays for a while, instead of upgrading to the latest drivers, however in a few months time you will start loosing some extra performance optimizations and new features as they get introduced to newer drivers. Up until the 285.62 driver Nvidia has been providing support for CRTs for legacy users, but they probably consider that it is about time to move on focusing more on 3D Vision certified products than on legacy CRT support. So the question is how many users are actually still using their CRT displays together with 3D Vision, anyone here doing that and not happy with the removal of the CRT support in the latest drivers?

Origin PC has announced what they claim to be the world’s first 3D-capable laptop with dual graphics cards in the form of their new EON17-X desktop replacement laptop or to be more specific the EON17-X3D. The Origin PC EON17-X laptop is configurable and you can have the system with a normal non-3D capable display or with a 120Hz Full HD LCD panel (EON17-X3D), the latest Intel X79 chipset, the new generation of Intel i7 processors, and a single or dual GeForce 580M video cards or single Quadro 5010M. The dual GeForce 580M SLI configuration also comes with dual power adapters that are needed to power this monster system, and you can also expect it to be a bit noisy and get hot under load as the total power consumption of the laptop can be quite high. The EON17-X3D model comes with a built-in IR emitter and uses 3D Vision 2 active shutter glasses, although it is not very clear if the LCD panel of the laptop supports the new 3D Lightboost technology or not (although it should). If you want to build configure your own Origin PC EON17-X3D laptop you should know that the base 3D-capable model will start at around $3000 USD and based on the other components in the system you can get that number quite high. If you are wondering what this monstrous in therms of performance and size laptop (up to about 2.4-inch thick and weighting around 12.1 pounds or 5.5 kilograms) is based on, it is the recently launched Clevo P270WM chassis. So don’t think that this laptop will be good for mobile stereo 3D gaming, it is clearly a big and powerful desktop replacement solution that will probably be easier to carry around than your desktop PC, but is far from being useful for mobile usage scenarios when you are on the go.
