L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition for PC with 3D Vision Support

November 8th, 2011 · 10 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


Do you want a new good game that works well in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision, well then you should forget about the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 game is it does not play well in stereo 3D mode. And apparently we’ll have to wait a bit more for the proper stereoscopic 3D support to be added with a patch for the latest Battlefield 3 game. And the release of the PC version of the new Batman: Arkham City game that should look wonderful in stereoscopic 3D mode was yet again delayed, this time for 22nd – 25th of November (depending on your location). So what can you play meanwhile that will look good in stereo 3D mode on 3D Vision? You should definitely check out the new PC version of the game L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition that just got released as it looks very nice in stereoscopic 3D mode as the game has official support for 3D Vision. But the console versions of the game apparently will not have support for 3D and they should be released in a few days on November 15th.

The PC version of L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition was developed by Rockstar Leeds and features increased resolution and graphical detail along with keyboard remapping and gamepad functionality. L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition on PC also features support for NVIDIA 3D Vision for an even greater sense of interaction and immersion.

There are already some screenshots in stereoscopic 3D format already available here on the 3D Vision Live portal that you can see. Also there is something very important regarding the proper support for the game by 3D Vision at the moment, as the latest official Nvidia video drivers version 285.62 do not properly recognize the game. You will have to manually make a 3D Vision profile for it with the correct settings and use it for a few days as Nvidia should very soon release a driver update to correct this issue. So here is what you need to do to be able to fully enjoy the L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition game in stereo 3D with 3D Vision at this very moment:

– Browse to NVIDIA Control Panel > Set up Stereoscopic 3D.
– Click “Set Keyboard Shortcuts”.
– Click arrow to “Show advanced in-game settings” and click checkbox to “Enable advanced in-game settings”. Remember your hotkeys.
– Start L.A. Noire.
– Change the default convergence up or down (doesn’t matter) and then press the button to save the Save in-game settings and make sure you see the green text on screen.
– Quit L.A. Noire.
– Open Regedit.
– Browse to these locations:
— For Windows 32-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\Stereo3D\GameConfigs
— For Windows 64-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\Stereo3D\GameConfigs
– Check to see if there is an Entry for “LANoire”.
– In the LANoire folder, create the following registry entries:
— D-word (32-bit), StereoConvergence=3eac4a51
— D-word (32-bit), StereoTextureEnable=00000023
— D-word (32-bit), StereoCutoff=00000001
– Re-launch L.A. Noire and you now are matching our 3DV profile. The in-game text still say its not rated by NVIDIA, but don’t worry about that.
