I've been using this with 3d vision, a 6-core 2.8ghz, and a 460 (+ minecraft! :smile.gif:) for about 2 days now. No inspiration to go back to flat-3d mode, even though I was doing full screen at 1920p, and can only get around 45 fps (23ish per eye, location matters, at 1280x720, I'm thinking about dropping the rez more...got it in long-draw mode with low-rez graphics to get the fr that high.....seems like it needs optimizations?) total in real 3d mode....a lot of overhead, but the dynamic (and relevant mostly) terrain of minecraft looks way better in a more natural and spatially aware 3d mode, enabling navigation and orientation much more easily and naturally, while also making the map feel a lot smaller, both in terms of how much I've built and vertical space. Also my sound isn't working, either through my built in realtek audio card -> regular pc speakers, or via my primary audio device my microsoft lifechat headset. So I play with glasses and no headphones, and it's pretty awesome, the sound wasn't that good or useful, although it wasn't worthless either, so fixing the sound if it's a common bug would be cool. :smile.gif: Some other options might be a button that caps/uncaps the draw distance quickly as a toggle for long range scanning, and if you could throw in a screenshot button that takes those 3d photos maybe with an option for +2d regular photo too, that would be neat. :smile.gif: It's also easier to aim the sword, but there are some glitches, plus measuring eyes is really hard with no measurers, and I have the feeling as I estimate those numbers that the weird crosseyed feeling that comes and goes as I jiggle those numbers is based on my measurement fail, but no other games require it and my measure bug is missing (a tape measure that vaguely resembles a 3 inch diameter large shell snail).
Edit: The sound works fine on both devices in normal flat mode, clicking the full screen 3d wrapper version makes the audio stutter badly and not work, like a short looping .1s of random .wav files constantly. Also there's no exit button, but alt-tab crashes it to a black window with an x, close enough to work fine. :smile.gif: Open source? I can code, I swear! ;p
Edit2: @MacGuy, do you think it would be easier for mackies to dual boot win than make all the coders/testers write everything and debug everything twice? Why are you even using that thing? It offers nothing extra but less for more assuming you know how it's made of.
Hopefully this is still being developed, but could you make an output that doesn't crash the IZ3D driver, its a free directx8,9,10,11 dll injector for anglyph rendering and supports many other outputs much more the nvidia could claim to. www.iz3d.com (if you want to test it you can download and just install the free anglyph driver) I assume all you'd need to do is make a wrapper module version that supports rendering any of those directx versions and doesn't do anything else other then a rendering translation.
Finally figured out what caused the sound issues. It's the OpenAL .dll version. Reverting to the one from older versions of minecraft fixed it.
Here's a link to the one that fixed it for me: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25451490/OpenAL32.dll
The linked file wont work for me as I'm on 64-bit windows, where Minecraft uses OpenAL64.dll instead.
I've using Minecraft with nVidia 3d vision all the time now, and it's awesome. The only things I don't like about it is that the frame rate is fairly low, and so I get a bit of motion blur (though hopefully that will become better with each new release of the mod) but also, I'm not sure if anyone else gets this, but when I exit Minecraft after playing in 3d, the 3d IR transmitter remains transmitting, meaning that my glasses will stay on all the time (until I shut down or restart my computer). Is anyone else getting this?
I downloaded the rar file, moved all of the contents to %appdata%/.minecraft.
Merged/overwrote any files.
Ran the .exe
Immediately notice the R/L thing isn't in 3D.
I try the hokey to enable 3D, nothing.
I change the settings in the program 100 times, start up minecraft.exe and it's never shown any 3D effects, or anything.
It's still not fullscreen, nothing's changed.
I've got everything updated that you said, and I just don't know what to do.
