Nvidia 3dVision anyone?

Recommended Posts

I have using it since 2011 on FSX but there is (was) a lack on development to use these 3D glasses in P3D3 and 4 and X-plane but to my very, very BIG surprise it is running and working again in W10 and Prepar3D 4.4.

After my disappointed adventure in VR, I have decided to go further down the 3Dvision road but can't find a good monitor in the 32" range that can handle the native 120hz. Yes, there are Freesync and G-sync compatible tv's and monitors now but are they working for 100% sure together with Nvidia 3DVision?

 

Thanks in advance...

Definitely following this thread. I'm a hardware pit flyer who does weird things like write down ATC clearances. VR, in it's current incarnation, degraded my overall experience to the point of being just a video game. 

I looked at 3Dvision and saw that it was not compatible in the past. Good to hear that P3Dv4.4 supports it.

Looking forward to developing this topic more.

Thanks.

I'd be interested to know if you had to apply any specific settings to get it working (ie in NV Inspector, etc). 

I can only get the Discover (red/blue) glasses working with P3Dv4, not my 3D Vision glasses.

 

Thanks,

Matt.

Well, I made a fresh install of Win10 because I collected me a VR headset and was experimenting with it and the setting, Installed and de-installed Flyinside for Prepar3DV4 demo version after playing a little with the graphical settings and after disconnecting the Samsung Odyssey headset cables within a running Prepar3d setting suddenly there was the 3DVision taking over the scene... Believe me, I have spend days on getting 3Dvision at work in P3D version 3 and 4.2 and 4.3 from the beginning and after reading a lot of complains about it, I give up also.

Was it a lucky shot? I don't know. I only know that it is running flawless in P3Dv44 for two days now and all the problems of the past like the offset with 2d lights in the old FSX/3Dvision combo are gone. I can even fly by night in 3D so I'm a some kind of "Happy Camper" right now, haha.

Thanks.  I get the light on the emitter go green, the glasses starting to shutter, but no depth.   I take the glasses of and the screen looks the same - only brighter.

Be sure that you running fullscreen and not windowed.

As I said, It came in after fiddling with graphical drivers/setting with VR but there is another thing I remember I have never used it in the past and that is using the util  DriverEasy to update all the drivers.

I'm running on a antique Sandy Bridge 2600K Combo and although Win10 (the latest edition from october 2018) managed the driver install correct and there where no issues, the DriverEasy util replaced about 15 drivers with fresh ones.

I also find out that Win10 updated direct after installation the Graphical driver to a version that looks as a original Nvidia version complete with 3Dvision setup but I cleaned it and installed the latest Nvidia driver manually.

Just an idea but wanted to let you know because it's absolutely for sure now, P3dv44 goes in tandem with Nvidia 3DVision and doing that very, very well.

Good luck.
