Hi, I am trying to use ddd drivers (I have just purchased them) with the AVATAR game.
I don't know why, but the native stereoscopic 3D visualization is awful on my Zalman Trimon monitor, so I am trying to use ddd drivers (half life 2 looks very good on my monitor with ddd drivers...).
There is not a profile for the AVATAR game on ddd drivers, so I am using the half-life 2 profile, and I added the game manually.
But when I launch the game, it does not work in stereo-3D mode, just 2D. Why is that?
Please, give me a hand...I see you guys :mrgreen:

What is wrong with the native visualization?

You might have to reverse the images in the Avatar S-3D profile. Make sure there aren't any S-3D drivers on or active.

Regards,
Neil

I tried native stereo visualization as soon as it came out, with all settings (intelaced, 22", distance from monitor) and it worked really bad, headache inducing (3D intensity: 1...so that's not the reason).
Before of that, I had tried the demo, and it didn't work at all (two images, but not 3D).
I have just tried again in native stereo-3D and it is finally working (I wonder why it didn't work before...)! But:
- the cut scenes still look terrible...I mean, they are a complete mess! While the stereo-3D mode, while playing, is most of the time really really excellent and immersive....even with the lowest details I had to set.
I am using one of the latest macboock pro with windows 7 64 bit on bootcamp and a Zalman Trimon monitor via vga cable.

Because of the cut-scenes, I still would like to use the ddd drivers I just bought, to see how that turns out.
I have just ordered an xbox 360 version of AVATAR: the game, too...because my parents finally decided to buy a small notebook instead of a desktop because of room and mobility reason...and my xbox 360 plays better than my macbook (and I will finally be able to see how the cut-scenes turn out to be on the console).

Thank you Neil :wink:

I don't think you can use 3rd-Party drivers with Avatar.

Ok. I think it is a bug with the interlaced output because the 22" result is terrible.

Increase the screen size to default. I think it is 50". Just go with default screen size settings. Then things will look good.

Regards,
Neil

Really?
Geforce 3D vision drivers are supported, but not ddd?
I guess there has been some kind of agreement within Ubisoft and Nvidia, since 120 Hz monitors were the only ones not supported in the native stereo-3D settings...that might be the reason...
Thank you :wink:

The Avatar game doesn't use the 3D Vision drivers, it bypasses them, it simply has the support built in. That's what I read on the nvidia forums anyway.

I don't know what is going on with your computer (or your eyes), koshien, but the Avatar implementation for the Zalman monitor is flawless. I have played through the game twice, and I can assure you the 3D effect is second to none and there is nothing wrong with the cutscenes. You can try these settings, which worked great for me:

3D Intensity: 2.0
Use Imperial Units: On
Screen Size: 8 inches
Distance to Screen: 6 feet
