The Game Trine Patched to Add Official 3D Vision Support

August 7th, 2010 · 5 Comments · Stereo 3D Games

Until a few days ago the game Trine was rated as Not Recommended to be played in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision according to the Nvidia game profiling system and it actually still is reported as such, however the developers of the game have already fixed the issues it had in S3D mode. With the latest patch for the game version 1.08 it is now working very well in stereo 3D mode when being played with 3D Vision and the previous issues are go, so the game can as well be considered almost as a 3D Vision Ready title after applying this patch.

Trine is a physics-based action game where three characters allow clever solutions to challenges created by hazardous puzzles and threatening enemies. The gameplay is based on fully interactive physics – each character’s different abilities and tactics can be used to invent new ways to overcome obstacles and save the kingdom!

Currently you can get a sweet deal for Trine by ordering the full game for just $9.44 USD

Further Improved 3D Vision Support for Battlefield: Bad Company 2

May 4th, 2010 · 4 Comments · Stereo 3D Games

Bad Company 2 used to have a bug, where the name tags (and associated icons) were rendered way off from the character they belong to when playing the game in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision, but now that issue is fixed. This problem was more apparent in the Multiplayer mode of the game as in Singleplayer you don’t see many name tags anyway. You can see what I’m talking about in the video above, to get an idea of the annoying nature of the problem when trying to play with name tags moved away like that…

The latest Battlefield: Bad Company 2 patch (version 529843) which was released on April 21st has the name tags display fixed and you should normally have that automatically installed, but if you skipped the update and you play the game in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision then now you have a good point in updating it. BFBC2 has an auto-update mechanism and forces all the Multiplayer users to update to the latest patch, but it seems that a lot of people that play the game mostly in Singleplayer might not have applied the patch and thus can still have the issue. And you are more than welcome to share your thoughts in the comments below how the latest patch works for you in stereo 3D mode…

And if you still don’t have the game, because it did not yet perform good enough for you in stereo 3D mode when using 3D Vision, then now you don’t have an excuse anymore even for that, so you can go and get it. The current price for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 at Amazon is $43.51 USD. Not to mention that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is also one of the game titles that works very well with a 3D Vision Surround setup as we’ve seen in all the 3D Vision Surround demonstrations going on around lately (plays very well on 3 displays). And the new driver release version 256, that will give us 3D Vision Surround as a feature is just around the corner and should very soon be available to everyone with two Fermi-based GTX 470 or GTX 480 or even GT200-based SLI configurations.

The Latest Unreal Engine 3 Will Have Official 3D Vision Support

March 11th, 2010 · 5 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Nvidia and Epic Games just announced the addition of official support for the stereoscopic 3D technology called 3D Vision in the latest Unreal Engine 3. This announcement means that licensees of the Unreal Engine 3 will be able to take full advantage of integrated 3D Vision support by offering games that not only look great, but also handle very well when played in stereoscopic 3D mode. The best news is that even the popular Unreal Development Kit (UDK), a free version of Unreal Engine 3, will also offer support for 3D Vision. The updated version of Unreal Engine 3 and UDK (the march beta does not include it!) will be available in the near future, allowing games developed with that revision (or later one) to deliver “out of the box” support for 3D Vision. Meanwhile the latest version of nreal Engine 3 with 3D Vision support is being demonstrated at the Game Developers Conference currently held in San Francisco, so if you are interested you can visit and see a demo of the engine in stereoscopic 3D mode. And while the announcement is only about 3D Vision support for the latest Unreal Engine 3 it will most likely work without any significant issues with other stereoscopic 3D solutions currently available.
