I just tried this older game and didn't expect very much of it, because strategie games are usually not the best to be played in S-3D.
It ran pretty smoth with all details maxed out - but had a lot of ghosting.
I needed to hold down strg+F6 quite a long time to get any "popout-effect". After a while I got my Starbase to popout nicely.
Next I wanted to try the cinematic function, but nearly all settings were way to high, because the camera moved extremely near to most objects. After a while of tweaking I got nice 3d cinematics with very low seperation and reduced popout.
