Yep this hobby just gets better and better. Just got my 3d glasses from E Dimensional and completed my first flight from Zurich to Malpensa. The mountains actually looked scary on the approach and for the first time I had the sensation of flying. It's great. And boy what a niiiiice scenery of Malpensa they have made. I hope everybody knows which scenery I'm refering to. Well Gentlemen and ladies all across the planet. Happy landings and a good night from Denmark.

Do you have an issue with your glasses where aircraft and runway lights appear to float out in space instead of being attached to the plane/ground? I get this effect with lights and with some scenery objects such as water towers and VORs. It's like they're sprites rather than tru 3D images.

So the e-dimensional glasses are worth a purchase then? I see it's possible to get wired versions for

I'll be curious to hear if you have the same issue I outlined above when your set arrives. For me, it spoils thew whole 3D effect to have VORs and lights floating out right in front of my nose when they should be a aprt of the scene! If others don't have this, I'd love some help in getting rid of them. E-Dimensional have very responsive tech support, but they're not sure what to make of this.

That did it! Thanks much! Strangely enough I get no drop in frame rates. Hmmm .. The effect is great. I do get some "ghosting" of white runway lines, etc. but it still looks very good. Blue side up,Philip.

I have stereo set at 70%, stereo gamma set at 2.30, digital vibrance set at max. then I set convergence so I can see the gauges clearly..75 zoom. These settings will have ghousting, but it's minimal at such high settings. Try it with Posky's Crj.With the Dreamfleet Cardinal I can set stereo to 100%. Let me know what you think of these settingThanks,Rex

It sounds like you're using the new det 4x drivers? I'm still on 30.82 becuase that was the version of the stereo driver. If you're using them successfully, I might go ahead and upgrade.Thanks for the settings tips - I'll give it a try and let you know.Happy flying,Philip.

I'm using 31.00 drivers on a geforce3 ti 500, 1152x864 res. 100 refresh rate. With the latest stereo drivers, can't recall their numbers, but there the latestRex

Rex are you using AA and AF? One of my dilemmas I just realized is that I want a dual monitor system with the 2nd screen being an LCD. Is there a way to not send the stereo image to the LCD, or will the dual image look ok on an LCD?Noel

Noel,I have AA turned off. AF is maxed. I quit using any tweak utilities.I had FPS locked at 16 and with 30.82 drivers, and with the 31.00 drivers I lock at 20fps. I run an AMD 1900xp I do believe the 3d glasses only work with CRT monitors.I run 3d on a 20" {agp} and have a 15" {pci} both CRT's. The only monitor that will show 3d is the monitor that you have the dongle hooked up to. When you look at the second monitor you will see the screen rolling like when you see a tv camera showing a computer screen. It's not so bad after you run it awhile. I tried running 3d on my brothers computer using a Geforce 2 PCI card and could not get it to work. His system did not have AGP.Rex

I can only agree with the above, that you are the man! I got my glasses yesterday, and it took me until today to actually read the Nvidia manual :-roll , so I finally understood that the drivers automatically turn on the stereo effect instead of using the ED software. I too had the effect of different lights (strobes, PAPI and some buildings) that has been mentioned, but your tip on T&L did the trick. Thanx, I

Here's a better Idea. Leave them default, for now. All you need to do is set it up once and save settings {Write Config}. Write hotkeys down on paper, for easy access during setup.Set stereo depthset gamma go into fs2002get your zoom set the way you like itadjust convergence so gauges are clear in vcsave settings {write config} it will be just like that the next time.Only hotkeys needed are:on/off {once in awhile I turn off to see a menu better}stereo depth increase and decrease (for experimenting}convergence increase and decrease (for different aircraft adjs.}write config {save's current settings}maybee gamma inc and dec {for experimenting}Once you get done experimenting, you will find a happy spot and the only keys needed will be on/off, and convergence inc/dec.My hotkeys change from time to time, due to the fact that I keep adding different hotkeys for autopilot settings and other addons that use hotkeys. Just keep the ones listed above and assign them something easy to remember, they are the ones that you will play with the most. The others that are not mentioned have NO keys assigned. If I think I need to adjust one I will assign it a temp one. And, remember to write config {save settings} whenever you hit a spot that you like.Rex
