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.

Workaround Solution for Viewsonic PJD6531w Users with 3D Vision

June 20th, 2010 · No Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


Nvidia has provided a temporary solution for the owners of the Viewsonic PJD6531w 3D DLP projectors and 3D Vision running into problems when setting up 3D mode using the 3D Vision wizard.Have in ind that what they’ve published is just a temporary workaround until a fix is made available (probably with the release of the next driver update). The step by stem guide available as a knowledgebase article will give you directions for configuring the Viewsonic PJD6531w with the Nvidia 3D Vision glasses and it is available here: I am having trouble setting up the ViewSonic PJD 6531w using CD v1.29 (v257.21)?

The cause of the bug is that the software is choosing the optimal mode reported by the projector which in case of the Viewsonic PJD6531w is 1280×800. However, the projector needs to run at 1280×720 rezolution @ 120Hz and thus the wizard will report an error. Nvidia is hoping to have a fix for that issue ready by the next 3D Vision driver update and meanwhile if you already bought Viewsonic PJD6531w projector, then you can use the temporary workaround for the time being…

Further Improved 3D Vision Support for Battlefield: Bad Company 2

May 4th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


Bad Company 2 used to have a bug, where the name tags (and associated icons) were rendered way off from the character they belong to when playing the game in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision, but now that issue is fixed. This problem was more apparent in the Multiplayer mode of the game as in Singleplayer you don’t see many name tags anyway. You can see what I’m talking about in the video above, to get an idea of the annoying nature of the problem when trying to play with name tags moved away like that…

The latest Battlefield: Bad Company 2 patch (version 529843) which was released on April 21st has the name tags display fixed and you should normally have that automatically installed, but if you skipped the update and you play the game in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision then now you have a good point in updating it. BFBC2 has an auto-update mechanism and forces all the Multiplayer users to update to the latest patch, but it seems that a lot of people that play the game mostly in Singleplayer might not have applied the patch and thus can still have the issue. And you are more than welcome to share your thoughts in the comments below how the latest patch works for you in stereo 3D mode…

And if you still don’t have the game, because it did not yet perform good enough for you in stereo 3D mode when using 3D Vision, then now you don’t have an excuse anymore even for that, so you can go and get it. The current price for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 at Amazon is $43.51 USD. Not to mention that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is also one of the game titles that works very well with a 3D Vision Surround setup as we’ve seen in all the 3D Vision Surround demonstrations going on around lately (plays very well on 3 displays). And the new driver release version 256, that will give us 3D Vision Surround as a feature is just around the corner and should very soon be available to everyone with two Fermi-based GTX 470 or GTX 480 or even GT200-based SLI configurations.
