this guilde will show you how to play DDO in 3D with a pair of coloured 3D glasses you or a friend probably has kicking about somewhere.
yup, if you have some coloured 3D glasses then this whole guide will get you gaming in 3D for free! if you don't then find someone that does, knock em over the head (sap feat helps) and do what any self respecting halfing would do, "borrow" em for an undefined period of time. the previous sentence may contain excessive drama.
works for any DX9 game
this guide is for our beloved DDO, but the driver is for DX9 and almost any DX9 game will work too. see their website for details on specific games.
for coloured glasses only, others will cost you cash
if you have those tinted glasses from the cinema then sorry, they wont work with this. this guide is about using the cheap coloured glasses and your existing screen. any other method generally costs you cash, which is out of the scope of this guide.
perfect 3d experience at the expence of colour experience
the very fact that the coloured glasses essentially "steal" 2 colours and use them to create depth means you will never get perfect colour in the image your looking at. this is why its free, its an old method and fundamentally flawed when it comes to showing colour pictures. its still fun though and seeing as its free and just a few clicks away well worth messing about with.
here's one i made earlier (hmm, probably a wasted saying as i doubt the mostly american audiance was subjected to blue peter as children, go google it if your interested)
any way, here are some piccies of DDO in 3D, so grab what ever coloured glasses you have and take a look. i've covered the 3 most common types of glasses so hopefully one piccy will jump out at you. please note this is set up to my personal tastes, you will have full control of how easy on the eye it is when your using the driver.
clicky to see full size:
for red/cyan glasses:
for yellow/blue glasses
for green/magenta or trioscopic glasses
if this image works for you then you'll need to follow the extra step in post 4, which means some copy and pasting of text.
