Just wondering if 3D page flipped glasses have been tested in SH3?

If not please consider purchasing a pair from eDimensional (http://www.edimensional.com), trying them and if they don't work, try getting them to work.

I have enjoyed using my 3D glasses in a number of sims. Playing in a world that tricks you into believing you are in a 3D environment, really enhances the experience. You do need an excellent CRT monitor that has a refresh rate of at least 100hz, at your preferred screen size, and they don't work with LCD displays, but the experience is well worth it.

That would be very good if they can get that to work. Maybe SHIV. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Actually, the developers don't need to program the game to be able to use the glasses. Most 3d glasses, or shutter glasses that I've seen work off of either OpenGL or DirectX, so as long as the game uses either of those API's to draw its' graphics, they should work fine.

I have a pair of eDimensionals and they are true headache. I have 21 inch CRT with refresh rate of 85 and I only use them for 3D photography. At some point I would like to make them work with my own mpeg`s but as far as the games are concerned - I gave up.

Eager for some hints though!

DrJonez,

It is supposed to work in both OpenGL and DirectX, but in practice it doesn't.

Unfortunatly the last video card I purchased was an ATI Radeon, and since that purchase, I have only rarely been able to use my 3D glasses. They just don't work in most of the games I have, this is the fault of eDimensional as I use their drivers, as ATI do not have drivers for 3D glasses.

I will have to replace my video card with an nVidia card, if I want to use my glasses again. Even that won't ensure that all games are compatible. If the SHIII developers could try them, and they don't work, maybe they can make simple changes that will let them work.
