Patching NVidia's 3D Vision Drivers Back Into The Unsupported Geforce Game Ready Driver



IT'S NOT RECOMMENDED TO PATCH YOUR DRIVER IF YOU HAVE THE NEW 1903 BUILD OF WINDOWS 10, as there are multiple conflicts with 1903 and the patched driver...

...if you've updated to the Windows 10, 1903 build it is highly recommended that you stick with Nvidia Game Ready Driver 425.31

425.31 can be downloaded here: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx



Also: Please only download Nvidia "Standard" drivers, not their DCH drivers (the DCH drivers cause issues and conflicts).

During the driver installations, please choose the "Custom (Advanced)" installation option, and check the "Perform a clean installation" checkbox.

Also, be aware there's a chance that your antivirus might block rcedit.exe (https://github.com/electron/rcedit/releases)




Script-driven Driver Installation & Patch

1. Download https://losti.s3.amazonaws.com/3D_Drive ... _LOSTI.zip

2. Extract it to a folder (DO NOT USE SPACES OR SPECIAL CHARACTERS IN THE FOLDER NAME (OR NAMES OF ANY OF THE FOLDERS IN THE DIRECTORY STRUCTURE), AS DOING SO WILL PREVENT THE SCRIPT FROM WORKING.)

3. Start 3D_driver_Changer.cmd and follow the instructions (Make sure you're the system Administrator for the P.C. but DO NOT "Run as Administrator" via right click!!!)





3D_driver_Changer.cmd will ask you to do the following:

1. Download Nvidia Game Ready Driver 425.31 (released April 11, 2019).

You can do this in advance here: https://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx

2. Download DDU (Wagnardsoft's Display Driver Uninstaller).

You can do this in advance here: https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/di ... nload.html

...or here: https://www.wagnardsoft.com

3. Disconnect from the internet while using DDU and while installing Nvidia Game Ready Driver 425.31 (Windows 10 will automatically download drivers from the internet as soon as it detects that none are present; so, if the P.C. remains connected to the internet during this process, you'll likely encounter driver conflicts. Follow the 3D_driver_Changer.cmd instructions closely to know when to disconnect from, and reconnect to the internet).

4. Clean up the system with DDU (this must be done in Safe Mode). When you run DDU click on "---Select Device Type---", choose "GPU", then click "Clean and Restart".

Note: DDU requires you to start the system in Safe Mode. To access Safe Mode, hold the Shift button while clicking on Restart...this will bring up an options screen...

...choose: Troubleshoot --> Advanced Options --> Startup Settings, and click Restart; then, when the P.C. restarts, select "Enable Safe Mode".

If you have difficulties getting into Safe Mode via this method, try this thread: https://www.digitalcitizen.life/4-ways- ... windows-10

5. 3D_driver_Changer.cmd will ask you to copy the latest Nvidia Game Ready driver for your graphics card into the "3D_Driver_Tool_V1.xx_by_LOSTI" folder, in preparation for the patch.

...once this is all done, 3D_driver_Changer.cmd will ask you to press "Y" to continue...please do so and continue to follow the instructions it gives.



It's also recommended (if you're intending to use Nvidia 3D Vision for the foreseeable future) to acquire a second SSD on which to install the Windows 10 1809 build (or maybe even Windows 7), for a "dual-boot"/"multi-boot" system. This thread: Keeping Windows 10 v.1809 & Postponing 1903 covers how to stop and/or delay the update to 1903. This thread: Multi/Dual-Booting, to maintain a 3D-Vision-Friendly Windows covers Multi-booting/dual booting.

I made a tweak to the download file referenced above for Driver_Tool_1.10, by swapping out the file for a .7z file, but renaming it to .zip so the links don't need to be changed. Mostly I expect this work, but please let me know if this causes errors for anyone, or you can't unzip the archive.

The reason to do this is so the file is 50% of the size of the original, 21M instead of 44M. This is the second most expensive file on the HelixMod AWS server, so if we can save on bandwidth it will cost less to host. However, it's not a lot of money, so if it causes problems, I'll revert it.


The original file is still available at: https://losti.s3.amazonaws.com/OG_3D_Dr ... _LOSTI.zip

Thanks Losti, I think we are OK for the time being.

Current costs are not high enough to worry about I think, about $100/year. This is being paid for from HelixVision now, as eqzitara handed off the AWS to me.

More of question of not wasting bandwidth or money, when there is a compression technique that is 2x better than the old ones. Just better to be efficient, faster downloads for the users.

If you are on Win 7 basically yes, run 3DVision.exe and check if the pyramid driver are installed, if you are on Win 10 look here: viewtopic.php?f=105&t=23352
