I finally got some shutter-glasses!

Well, I've had the glasses for some time, but now I have the driver/adapter thing to connect them to the PC! And, since I now have two pairs, all I need is a headphone splitter to allow two people to see the stereo goodness! (Or, I could save one for when the other gets worn out...)

The set I got is called the H3D Terminator. I hope it has decent software support... For some reason, it seems like there are more shutter-glasses standards than there are shutter-glasses companies

I can test out the shutter glasses mode of the PVB3 stereo screen-shot applet and Reality Boy! And I'll be all set when Parasyte implements a "Virtual Boy Color" system in VUE32

Anyway, thanks for reading my excited ramblings

D'OH! I completely failed to mention that I got them on eBay and they haven't arrived yet

I'll let you know what it's like when I get them all set up...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!!!

They finally (stupid USPS ) arrived yesterday and they SUPER-TOTALLY-HARD-CORE-ROCK-THE-FREAKIN-WORLD!!!!!

It turns out it was actually the wireless set (seller was mistaken) but there's a port for the wired glasses, too. So, I can use both pairs at once, and I don't even need the splitter!

If I use them at 85Hz, the only flicker is in the stuff in the room, like my monitor bezel. A dark room fixes that. At 120Hz (limited to 640x480 mode on my _current_ system ) there is absolutely no flicker AT ALL!

Plus, the glasses are turned on and off by a simple set of colored lines on the top few rows of the screen. They sorta look like a stretched out German flag, cause they use horizontal stripes of red, yellow, black (and green). These could be easily incorporated into RB/RD/VUE32.

Well, enough typing... THERE'S 3-D TO SEE!!!!

Not that anyone cares, but I just ordered a "new" (for me, anyway) nVidia card which will allow my glasses to work with (nearly?) any game and make them truly 3-D!!! WOOT!

It would be extra schweet if it worked on N64/PSX emus...

Now, if someone could figure out how to modify the Voodoo3 3500 to allow the PC to go to standby, I could make a living-room/DVD/emulator/"TIVO" PC with it. I still might, but I'd really like standby...

OMG its RunnerPack!!! Long time no see!!!

So, how are the glasses working out for you? I'd love to be able to view games in 3D, but the best I have are crappy LCD glasses that stopped working yeas ago...

Hiya, lameboy!

Yeah, it's things like that 3-letter abbreviation you just used that made me leave in the 1st place

But, as for the glasses, I haven't gotten them to work yet. (With this driver, anyway)

I installed the stereo driver and my computer started going crazy! It wouldn't boot so I had to load a registry back-up. Then, I installed the latest driver, and it seems to have the stereo support built-in, and it might not support my glasses

This and a lack of both time and games to test it with are the major hurdles at this point.

BTW, where'd your website go? You should e-mail me and get me caught up on what's been happening with you and the "scene" (although I have pretty much read the 3 posts-per-year that have racked up here )

Well, later
