If you are a stereoscopic 3D gamer playing games using Nvidia’s 3D Vision or 3DTV Play solutions, then you should be well aware of the fact that it is not very often that new games come with perfect stereoscopic 3D support. Some games can become much better looking in stereo 3D support with just a few simple tweaks and other require more serious attention, but game developers rarely take the time think about these, in fact most developers are still ignoring the constantly growing number of stereo 3D gamers that probably already is a few millions large market. So it is up to the stereoscopic 3D community to think about solutions to finding a way to deal with the problems in games that need fixing for better stereoscopic 3D support and the results are quite good so far. One very popular such solution referred to as the Helix Mod which is essentially a DirectX 9 wrapper DLL file that can give you the ability to modify the pixel and vertex shaders in games using DirectX 9 to get them to work better in stereoscopic 3D mode. The person going under the username Helix who made the solution has shared it so everyone could help and people are already contributing various solutions with removed or modified shaders in games that cause issues when rendered in stereo 3D mode. This mod is intended for 3D Vision and the fixes available are targeted at users with 3D Vision or 3DTV Play setups, so it may not work with other solutions for stereoscopic 3D gaming. Here is a list of fixes for various games that are available so far that can help you get better experience when playing in stereoscopic mode using 3D Vision or 3DTV Play:
