This month I’ve been away for a bit due to various reasons, and at the end of it I can definitely say that May was not my lucky month at all. It started with my work laptop dying and the need to replace it and reinstall and recover from backups, then some strong earthquakes scared the shit out of everyone in here (though in Italy it is much worse) and then probably the worst disaster of all – Diablo 3 got released. Anyway, as everything seems to be back to normal now I’m hoping that June will be a better month. And in two weeks it is the third birthday of the 3D Vision Blog, time sure does fly quick…

DDD has just released a new beta version of their TriDef 3D Ignition software for playing games in stereoscopic 3D mode (it is just the Ignition software, not the whole TriDef 3D package) and it is something that you might want to try out, especially if you play Battlefield 3 in stereo 3D. TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4 provides a better stereoscopic 3D profile for Battlefield 3, it also adds profile for the recently released Diablo 3 and fixes some other things.
TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4 changelog:
– Added new game profiles for Diablo 3 and other games.
– Improved performance of Power 3D in DX10/11.
– Fixed a few visual bugs in Battlefield 3 and Batman Arkham CIty.
– Fixed a game launch issue in Windows 8.
– Added a search box in the Add Game dialog.
According to a just published stereoscopic 3D review of Battlefield 3 over at MTBS3D, the profile for Battlefield 3 in the latest beta of Ignition makes the stereoscopic 3D experience while playing the game with DDD TeiDef 3D Ignition better looking than using the game’s native stereo 3D rendering on AMD HD3D and Nvidia 3D Vision. With the best part being the lack of “flatness” when you are in a vehicle or in the cutscenes, something that is happening when using the native stereo 3D rendering from the game. And although this might’ve been something made intentionally by the game developers, most stereoscopic 3D gamers usually prefer to have more depth than to have things appearing “flat”. Another thing that apparently works quite well with the game is the Shift One Eye, Dominant Eye feature also recently introduced by DDD. If you try the new beta software with Battlefield 3 feel free to share your feedback below and the same goes if you are already playing Diablo 3 and want to test it with the new profile added in TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4. And just a reminder, this is a beta software, so there could be some issues.
