Hello friends finally after many attempts, I have uncovered like playing to Descent3 in Anaglyph 3D mode and i think also in others modes with IZ3D drivers that supports only Directx9 and quad buffered OpenGL drivers, the solution is the dgVoodoo wrapper. DgVoodoo is a Glide Wrapper that implements Glide 2.11 and Glide 2.43 API by using DirectX9 it provides support to run Windows-based and DOS-based applications using Glide, and it can also emulate VESA 2.0 for DOS applications, and since Descent3 it supports 3dfx Glide it works with IZ3D drivers. Therefore here like making in order to activate the Anaglyph 3D mode in Descent3: 1) Install the IZ3D drivers (the anaglyph 3D mode is free)in your computer, 2) Extract the content of DgVoodoo rar archive in the main directory of Descent3, 3) Now open the setup of DgVoodoo and in the Global window navigate to open the glide driver in the Descent3 directory, 4)In the Renderer API set Direct3D9 and in the display driver set Automaticallyselected 5) In the Glide window let's the default settings 6) Now press Ok and exit to the setup of DgVoodoo. 7) Launch Descent3 and in the setup launcher in the Video window press redetect available rendering devices and scan for the selected video devices and select 3Dfx Glide Voodoo Graphics driver after the scan. 8)Ok now Descent3 is ready to play with Dgvoodoo wrapper and IZ3D driver.9) When you play don't select the campaign retribution she gives an error but select a thirdy party mission 10) To activate the anaglyph driver in game press the * key in the numeric keyboard and play with your Anaglyph glasses in real 3D to Descent3 :D WOH 8)

Update very important read this: I have tested Nglide wrapper with IZ3d driver and it's work very well it's support Windows7 too, then i recommend this in place of Dgvoodoo wrapper.

Shutter Glasses Mode requirements:

Elsa Revelator

http://www.ultimate3dheaven.com/3dstac1.html

1) A pair of shutter glasses wired or wireless Edimensional, Elsa revelator, X3D, etc. with Vga dongle included with the glasses, Ir emitter only for wireless glasses.

2) A Crt monitor capable of refresh of 120hz or 3d ready Monitor at 120hz (Zalman,IZ3D,VieWsonic etc.)

3) Drivers for Ati video cards: Edimensional universal driver included in the cd of edimensional glasses works in interleave mode (this drivers are compatible with Directx 7,8,9 and Open GL)
(IZ3D drivers or Tridef drivers work with Nglide wrapper for all graphic card)
With IZ3D driver go in the control panel of the drivers and select interleaved and horizontal.

4)For Nvidia cards 7000 series only (ForceWare drivers 71.89, 78.01, 84.21, 91.31 or 162.50 at the very latest with their respective 3D stereo enabling counterparts. 162.50 were the last drivers to suppord 3rd party glasses.)
- a GeForce 7900GS, 7800gtx, 7900GT, 7900GTX or 7950 older card. Those were the last cards to fully support 3rd party glasses. Reportedly 8800 gtx, 8800 gts (the old one with 320 and 640 mb ram) and 8800 Ultra cards can be made to work with lots of hacking, but only for DirecX (so no OpenGL)


5)Instruction to use shutter glasses

6) E-D activator to activate your glasses:
Launch the E-D activator and select interleaved and activate stereo on

as I posted in the iz3d forums

Quote:
what seems to be happening is parts of the user interface get separation, while the actual 3d scene is some distance behind it but still flat- don't know if it's because of the convergence/separation or if the driver simply ain't hooking fully

so what? HL1 ran fine on my pentium 199Mhz and years later When I tried it using the Edimensional glasses it looked amazing

Didn't you read the thread ? It was just an answer to tritosine who said that the game was for 386 dx40.

Decent was really cool when it first came out. I definitely remember playing with shutter-glasses: now THAT will make you nauseous for sure.

Hello friends someone of you have never played to Descent 3 with shutter glasses?
And according to you what is the best driver to play to Descent 3?
Edimensional universal drivers, old school Nvidia drivers or IZ3D with wrapper?
Post your setting if you have played to us.

I've played Descent 3 a long time ago with the NVIDIA drivers IIRC, but I tried it again some months ago with the old school NVIDIA driver but it wasn't as good. I guess it is quite sensible to the version of the drivers.

I was talking about the old-school NVIDIA drivers.

IIRC means "if I remember correctly", I'm often quite lazy so I use acronyms. :P
