TriDef 3D Ignition 3.8 Beta 1 Released With 64-bit Game Support

October 13th, 2013 · No Comments · General 3D News

DDD has released a new beta of the TriDef 3D Ignition that adds support for 64-bit games or games that also have a separate 64-bit launcher aside from the standard 32-bit one. As usual with the beta versions you need to install them on top of a full installation of the TriDef 3D software package (OEM or Retail) in order to be able to try them. Below you can find a complete changelog of what is new and which 64-bit games have been tested and confirmed working. Note that the Battlefield 4 Beta is still not supported, but hopefully by the time the full game will be released it will be supported starting October 29 in North America and following with other regions in the next few days.

Beta Changelog:

- Added support for 64-bit games.
- Tested 64-bit games: World of Warcraft, Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Firefall, Gone Home, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing.

The TriDef 3D Software Now with Experimental Oculus Rift Support

July 30th, 2013 · 4 Comments · 3D / AR / VR / HMD

DDD has released a new beta version of their TriDef Ignition software with experimental Oculus Rift support for several DirectX 9 games (DirectX 10 and 11 are not yet supported). This is great news for everyone with an Oculus Rift Dev Kit that not only uses it for development, but also for fun and wants to try more games with the Rift. The games that support the experimental Rift mode in the Ignition beta are: BioShock 2, Crysis, Fallout 3, Half-Life 2, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Borderlands 2 and Metro: Last Light though other DX9 games might work as well. The new beta of the software brings some extra HMD Settings that are available for the Rift and it also includes head tracking support that of course maps to the mouse cursor. You need to do a full TriDef 3D install (if you don’t yet have it installed) and on top of that to install the beta of Ignition.

Up until now the only software that allowed people to try games that are not specifically designed for the Rift with the HMD device was the Vireio Perception, a free and open-source 3D driver, even though there are other similar projects. An example for such a project is the vorpX software that seems promising (commercial), however lately its developer has been silent and there hasn’t been any information on the current and future status of the project.

If you want to be updated on the currently available and upcoming games and applications with support for the Oculus Rift 3D-capable Head Mounted Display you might want to keep an eye on RiftEnabled and The Rift List. Meanwhile it seems that by the end of this year we may see a second Dev Kit of the Rift announced/released (not clear if it will be with Full HD display though), however the consumer version of the device will most likely not arrive before sometime in 2014.

DDD TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4 Software Now Available

May 16th, 2012 · 9 Comments · General 3D News


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.
