Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Nvidia has just released its pair of stereoscopic glasses that will enhance a lot of popular games (from World of Warcraft and Unreal Tournament, AvP2, Company of Heroes, etc etc.) by creating a huge sense of depth. Full list of games:here
The main page of Nvidia has these spiffy glasses advertised. They are coming out soon (within a week or two), and for 598 you get a 120 Hz 22'' Samsung Monitor and the glasses ($199 seperately). It's listed below.
Some nice observations by HazeAI:
- It pulls object depth information from DirectX so it is actual accurate 3D with games that weren't specifically designed for it (though some effects like fog, smoke, and fire cause problems with this). Also, because it pulls the object depth from the game there isn't any pop out at you kind of 3D, since games don't really render anything behind the camera currently. Personally I like 3D that focuses on depth better so this is a plus for me.
- Nvidia is actively working with companies to get 3D options into games, and toss in a few effects that do pop out of the screen at you occasionally. The only game that supports this currently is WoW on test servers. Still pretty nifty that they are working on this.
- The configuration program for the glasses will give you a little pop-up when you start a game that tells you the optimal settings for 3D.
