The Ideal System With all the different drivers it seems that it would be difficult to come up with the ideal system however it is much easier than you think. Unfortunately, it’s not overly useful, at least not initially. Let me elaborate that point: Pretty easy to add to any game. You’ll have to generate each scene twice, from the point of view of each eye. It would be nice to get better documentation for and access to the API 2. I have no explanation for this final lesson.

How can you know at runtime?

VRCaddyME requires that you manually load it prior to use so therefore switching between stereo-rriver and mono is as simple as not loading the wrapper.

If you get it to work well, you will make a lot of gamers happy including me! The biggest drawback to the eyeSCREAM drivers is a hafl resolution driver meaning when playing at x you actually are getting x Sat Dec 22, 9: I know OpenGL pretty well, and just the thought of supporting all versions and extensions with something like 3D Vision Automatic terrifies me.

VRCaddyME comes in two flavors, interlaced and Page Flipping mode, which one you need depends on the chipset of your video card as not all cards support page flip mode.

Meant to be Seen – View topic – OpenGL to Direct3D to 3D Vision: yes, it works great!

And where is the API mentioned in the presentation? Thanks for posting the code. In this way, running OpenCL kernel, it fill those textures. VRCaddyME also contains a database of games that automatically configures the 3d setting to the custom settings contained in the database.


If you think of an interesting OpenGL 3D game or app that doesn’t use the fixed function pipeline don’t hesitate to post it, I’d like to have a try at supporting it with my driver. I just tested it a bit with Forceware and the corresponding 3D stereo driver on my older XP machine.

Because vertex shaders can do anything they want with the incoming vertices, there is no way for the driver to know what projection you are using, if at all. I have no idea what the difference could be, because if I disable 3D Vision and just show the final surface on the screen, using either kind of surface produces an identical result. In the end they abandoned it for Direct3D, which basically killed OpenGL in the consumer market after some years.

3D Glasses – Drivers

I will continue this search and look for possibilities, heck they said we would never get EF 3DFX to work in Glide mode without a 3D FX Card, well they even did that so nothing is impossible it is just if someone does the mod of hack to get it working. At least for the purposes of my game, I would rather use my own proprietary API rather than OpenGL quad-buffer, and just render the scenes in reverse.

So, all your surfaces will appear upside down.

Sun Apr 13, 2: The board comes packaged with a software DVD player and some sample little cable that gives you the ability to hook up the 3D Revelator glasses. It’s actually hidden inside the “StereoIssues” code sample.

Well, you can, but Elsz imagine it would be very hard to do in your code. At the same time cheap LCD shutter glasses developed for the games market are becoming available e.


Thing is, when you use VBOs, it’s up to you to implement projections. Even though the origin is double the width of the destination, and also has an extra row, the driver recognizes the magical signature and turns on 3D mode.

Pretty easy to add to any game. OpenGL and Direct3D have different coordinate systems. Also there is absolutely no need to handle any different versions or extensions, I’ve been able to support games from to with basically no modification to my OpenGL code base. I know that modders have already got it to sterso-driver with 3D Vision, though these mods keep breaking as new versions are released.

But, that’s just a convention, and is not standardized.

If you don’t, glCheckFramebufferStatus will return an unknown error code. I stere-odriver that some people have done simple tranlsations for OpenGL, that work for a very small subset of games, but it’s hardly a general solution.

In my opinion, this was a good dkrect3d, and cleans the OpenGL out of a lot of heavy cruft that it’s been gathering for a while. The new Detonator drivers are compatible with most 3d glasses that I have tested so therefore almost anyone with an NVIDIA card can take advantage of these.
