Finally an Update for iZ3D Users, New Game Profiles are Available

April 5th, 2011 · 9 Comments · General 3D News


While iZ3D still hasn’t released the new beta driver version 1.13 that we are waiting for, they have made available a 1.13 beta baseprofile for downloading that you can use with your 1.12 driver installation. This means that you should be able to replace your current baseprofile with no problems with this new one and get access to the new stereo presets for over 300 supported games according to iZ3D.

The new baseprofile has fixes for:

– Battlefield Bad Company 2 Interface in DX 11
– Civilization V Interface
– Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. 2 Interface in DX9
– Crysis 2 Intefrace
– Monday Night Combat Interface
– King Arthur Interface
– Darkspore Beta Interface
– LEGO Star Wars 3: Clone Wars Interface
– Back to the Future Ep1 & Ep2 Interface
– Need for Speed Shift 2 Interface

In the new baseprofile there are also some minor changes, like the significantly improved exceptions system and the fact that user profile presets will now always have a higher priority.

To replace your current Baseprofile with this new one one, go to “C:\ProgramData\iZ3D Driver\” (On Vista or Windows 7) or to “C:\Users\All Users\Aplication Data\Roaming\iZ3D Driver” (on XP) and replace Baseprofile.xml with one that you can download from the link below. It is still not a new driver, but at least it is something before we can actually see the new 1.13 beta release, hopefully soon…

To download the new 1.13 beta baseprofile for the iZ3D driver…

    ¿ iZ3D = Anaglyph 3D ?

  • 2 Bloody // Apr 5, 2011 at 20:00

    It supports free anaglyph mode, as well as multiple other output methods… including AMD’s HD3D tech.

    Either iz3D are working hard on a major rewrite of the entire driver or the development team are now drug addicts. And i’m going to assume the later. Their lack of updates is letting down their users.

    I am glad I now use the nVidia Driver, iz3D ruined my experience of some games, for example GTA IV which is fantastic on the nVidia driver (Really a true show-case game, especially the cut-scenes that have great depth and pop-out) but on the iz3D driver no matter how good your hardware was the game ran at under 15fps :(

    How about some true innovation? For example a true Stereo 3D Mouse Cursor for those RTS gamers?

    Hello bloody,
    the link is broken! there is no baseprofile to download.

    Please fix it.

    Thank you

    It is working just fine, right click on it and choose Save As, as this is an XML file and your browser might try to open it directly instead of downloading it…

    LoneThread , from what I know they are implementing their own universal shutter support, which should enable frame-sequential s-3d play on all hardware and also rewriting a lot of driver code.

  • 7 Bloody // Apr 6, 2011 at 15:14

    Hopefully multi-GPU support is also coming… soon. :)

  • 8 artox // Apr 6, 2011 at 16:42

    I wouldn’t hold my breath for multi-gpu support, but it would be great :)

    To me, it rather looks like they’re rewriting a lot, taking into consideration that they’re planning to release a stable shutter system for every hardware. I’m also a bit unhappy that there haven’t been updates for so long, but if the next one will bring a lot of improvements, this will be forgotten soon. The problem they seem to have is that if they fix one thing, something else breaks.
