NEW MTBS UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD SECTION!

By NewsNo Comments

Hello everyone!

Check out our downloads section, and select “MTBS FILE EXCHANGE“. There is now a place where you can upload your favorite shareware and public domain software.

Upload your favorite files, and if appropriate, I will make them available for our members. Sample files that would be welcome include NVIDIA game profiles, hardware drivers, and applicable shareware and public domain software.

The inspiration behind this came from Rage Demon.

I also made another discovery – my private inbox was FULL! I?m sorry if you were trying to reach me and couldn?t get through. I increased everyone?s private mailbox size – so if our storage space holds up, this should work for now.

One more thing – our hard working web design team is going on vacation. I have opened up a special forum to discuss website ideas and features. All ideas are welcome!

MTBS Incentive Program Revealed!

By NewsNo Comments

As you all know by now, iZ3D will be releasing revolutionary stereoscopic-3D drivers that support post processing effects, Windows Vista, and both NVIDIA and AMD/ATI graphics card solutions.

The main goal behind MTBS is to encourage game developers to follow S-3D programming standards so that games will look their best when played in stereoscopic 3D. Our method of doing this is by encouraging certification via game developer forums, customer service inquiries, banner ad exchanges, and positive word of mouth.

We recognize that this is time consuming, and have devised an incentive program to award our most active members. In terms of participation level, from highest to lowest, we will be awarding the most proactive MTBS members with the following:

  • One FREE iZ3D 22″ monitor as soon as it is available.
  • Two FREE iZ3D 17″ monitors.
  • Six deep 40% discounts on the retail price of the iZ3D 22″ monitor when available.
  • Twenty 20% discounts off the retail price of the iZ3D 22″ monitor when available.

    This is just the beginning. When the program proves successful, we will be able to enhance our offering with additional benefits and sponsor additions. The more you put in, the more we will be able to give out!

    The incentive program and details can be accessed from the “Member Benefits” section. All pre-existing advocacy efforts will be tallied provided they are properly submitted.

    Good luck and have fun!

  • The Big Announcement!

    By NewsOne Comment

    Hello everyone!

    I?m sorry for being a bit late in posting this news, but it?s been crazy here in Paris (in a good way!).

    First, Dimension-3 Expo was a TREMENDOUS success! I?m going to have videos of the event available, and if you are interested, you will be able to download my presentation for your viewing. A lot was covered, and I hope you like it.

    NOW – the BIG announcement!

    iZ3D is releasing their own proprietary stereoscopic drivers when their 22″ S-3D monitor is released.

    Here are the big benefits:

  • Supports post processing effects (HDR, Bloom, etc.).
  • Supports NVIDA and AMD/ATI Graphics Cards.
  • Supports multi-core CPUs.
  • Vista compatible for DirectX 8 and 9 games!
  • Reasonably accurate cross-hair for most games (no laser sight needed).
  • Proper Hardware Transform & Lighting Support.
  • YES! They fully support 8800 series cards!

    Limitations:

  • Proprietary to iZ3D monitor(s).
  • Supports DirectX 8 and 9 ? nothing later or earlier YET.
  • OpenGL is not supported YET.

    I?ve been using the drivers for some time, and they clearly offer a lot of S-3D benefits without the quality trade-offs. I will post more screen shots when I get home in a few days.

    I am very excited by these drivers because:

    1. They demonstrate that S-3D can be achieved without visual trade-offs.
    2. They will encourage accelerated innovation in the S-3D driver market.
    3. Top quality S-3D is now possible on both NVIDIA and ATI solutions.

    To celebrate this innovation, we are going to be announcing a new incentive program that will award MTBS S-3D advocates free monitors and very deep discounts on monitor purchases.

    MTBS is non-proprietary, and we will be maintaining our current certification standards. We will be adding an additional category for iZ3D drivers as their criteria for visual success are very different.

    Thank you for you patience!

  • I’M OFF TO PARIS!

    By NewsNo Comments

    I’m going to be on a plane in just a few hours for Dimension-3 expo. I’ll do my best to post on the forums while I’m gone, so hold tight!

    Just four days away from the major, major announcement. Let’s show the gaming industry what MTBS membership is all about, and continue making a difference by posting in our advocacy sections.

    Remember, MTBS members get 20% off Dimension-3 Expo admission. Maybe I’ll meet some of you in person?

    First Major Announcement!!!

    By NewsOne Comment

    Hello everyone!

    I hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekend. Check out our Press section. I have been invited to be a keynote at the upcoming Dimension-3 Expo in June. Read the press release carefully and connect the dots – I?m hopeful you will be able to read between the lines on what is coming down the pipe.

    Many of you have been using our advocacy forums, and I can?t stress how important it is that you continue. I?d like to demonstrate your work at the conference. After the major, major, major announcement is made, you stand to directly benefit from your efforts. We will announce how after the presentation in June.

    The press release has not been sent out yet – I just wanted to give our members a heads up.

    Thanks again for your continued efforts.

    94.24 Stereo Beta Drivers!

    By NewsOne Comment

    New drivers to test! The new beta drivers are designed for 6 and 7 series cards, and can be found along with the latest 94.24 WHQL Forceware in our download section.

    I started a new thread in the forums as well. The control panel for this driver is distinctly different from the 8800 series driver, which I find interesting.

    Game servers are great, and they are even better when you have people to play with! “Meant to be Seen” is pleased to announce a new affiliation with FearedGamers.net.

    If you go to the “Game Server” section in our “Member Benefits” category, you will find a whole new selection of games to choose from. Battlefield 2, Multi-Theft Auto, Call of Duty 2, Counter-Strike Source, and MORE!

    You are now going to find a lot more gamers that are waiting, ready, and willing to play. When arrangements are finalized, at least 50% of the gaming slots will be reserved for MTBS members.
