Has anyone a pair of these? I've seen on their web-site that they should work with Fly!2. Can anyone give some feedback on how well they work? Is it worth the money?Cheers, // Geir Strand // Stavanger, Norway //

I do own a pair but I have never been able to get them to work with Fly!2, the sim crashes immediately when using them. Although I better say that I have not tried to make them work with Fly! in a very long time so maybe something has been changed that allows them to work now, I do not know. I think that I remember hearing that something about the way Fly! is coded does not allow the glasses to work properly. If anyone has any more up to date information please let us know. The glasses do work very well with MSFS though and I have enjoyed them tremendously. Philip Olsonhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpg

Philip,A long time ago, I got these two e-mails from Nathan Newman at eDimentsional (the first one is the last one I got):(QUOTE)-----Original Message-----From: Nathan NewmanSent: Sunday, January 27, 2002 11:59 PMTo: Alejandro AmigorenaSubject: Re: E D GlassesAlex, I have confirmation that fly II works with a Geforce card by nvidia. We don't know how well it would work with other cards, but know it does work with that one. It will not be necessary to send me that disk after all. Let me know if you have any more questions.

I am sorry, but I've been looking around for 3 days and haven't found anything about Fly II. It should work, but I don't have anything that says it does or does not. Do you have any other games? It's our software that does the process of creating 2 perspectives. The hardware just display's those perspectives as it normally would display video. If you have any other questions please let me know. Regards, Nathan eDimensional, Inc. Alejandro Amigorena wrote: Hi! I was just wondering if they work with Terminal Reality's Fly!II. If so, does this mean that the software processes two different pictures (persepectives) or is this something that YOUR software does with the video board? Thanks, Alejandro Amigorena Syracuse, NY(END OF QUOTE)Hope this sheds some light.Regards,http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/dfdg/banneraa.jpg

I have them and used them quite a lot.Though they are put away now while Im doing work to our living room.The software makes the screen picture fuzzy and/or flicker.Your glasses are in line of site to a little infa red divice which goes to your video card. In the icon by the clock, which appears after you load the software, you can change the 3d settings to siut the game or pictures you are viewing.It didnt work at first but after a little fiddle with the settings mode I was off and away.Low flying in the Bell 407 through New York made me feel sick. :-lol Is it worth the money?Well they were given to me, by a good friend so I cant answer that ;-) But they are fantastic for many other things too.Stevehttp://mysite.freeserve.com/ysomdesign/banner.jpg My Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orghttp://www.cafeshops.com/wrexhamspace

Hi,I bought these glasses one week ago and works very fine with Fly!II. I spent some time setting my preferences but at the end it's worth every minute! :)Some hints: 1) try to use refresh above 85hz, it will eliminate any flicker. I set all my resolutions with 100hz and the effect is amazing, no tired eyes after long flights;2) do not use antialiasing with these glasses. It's will reduce Fly!'s performance almost to zero. Disable antialiasing: since you are wearing 3D Glasses, it will uncover the jaggies and you can play even at 800x600 pixels;3)will reduce Fly!'s framerate about 20%;4)try to use stereo separation and convergence until you find the best image. I got incredible depth just changing both settings without ghost images or eyes tired.These glasses surprised me a lot! They're incredible to use (works outstanding with many games) and it's a good adition to the Fly! world.Good luck,Keyton
