Do any console emulators support Stereoscopic 3D?

Post by Anthony1 »

I was wondering if any of the console emulators have any special support for Stereoscopic 3D? I'm thinking of 3D based consoles like Playstation 1, PS2, Dreamcast, etc, etc.

Many emulators work in conjunction with nvidia or iZ3D drivers but you have to configure the emulators properly.

The emulators themselves usually don't have any special stereo3D support, but their rendering engines are usually based on OpenGL or DirectX.
So 3D drivers should be able to hook them up as long as you configure the emulator to use DirectX rendering.

Blackshark is right on. Project 64 1.6 works very nicely.

The main problem you are going to have is that for console emulators, you do not have a mouse cursor for the IZ3D drivers to use autofocus with, so if the game has a camera that is constantly shifting depth, you are not going to have an optimal experience. :(

Don't mean to hijack the thread but I'm looking to get Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 working in 3D with a Mayflash DolphinBar.

Also hoping to get Super Mario 3D World (Wii-U) working in 3D also.

Which emulator should I use and does the operating system I'm using make a difference? Is it better to use Win7 or Win10 1809?

Citra natively supports side by side 3d. There's a Helix mod that can render it in Nvidia 3d vision. http://helixmod.blogspot.com/2019/08/ci ... to-3d.html

I have working fixes for Gamecube and Wii Games to work flawlessly in 3D. Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword as well as Mario games look incredible in 3D.
