Go here: http://www.flightsim.com/cgi/kds?$=main/review/3dglass.htm for the review of E Dimensional's 3D glasses in FB and PF.

Anyone tried these yet?

I hope someone is. I want to know if they are as good as the advertising claims. If they do work I imagine that my defelction shooting would get much better.

I have tried these some months ago and found them rather disappointing. I could get a 3D effect, but had to reduce my screen settings a lot and it slowed the game up enormously, and darker too. TrackIR is brilliant, but 3D has not been successful. I have a Radeon 9800 Pro card.

It only seems to support VGA & not DVI.

System Requirements for Gaming:
Windows PC 95/98/ME/2000/XP
CRT or LCD external monitor with VGA connection (no laptop screens)

Monitor:
Minimum 70Hz refresh rate suggested

You might find this intresting

Thanks for the link, Madsarmy. I missed that thread. Guess maybe I'll wait for a newer, and better, version.

They're ok if flying around and looking at stuff is what you want to do. If you want to fly and fight, forget it. I have them and they are a pure novelty. I used them one (1) day in various games and felt that game playability and video performance were greatly hampered. They've been in a drawer for about three years now.

Same experience here. I used the glasses a few times but now they eat dust in a drawer.

They've changed allot in 3 yearshttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif. Try with a new pair. I remember a set I got with a Geforce 2 years and years ago. Gave me a headache in minutes. I know people who have newer ones and say there much better than when they first appeared on the market.

I think 3D glasses will take off when Vid cards can maintain 120fps or better. Until then, most will be disappointed in them in fast action games that require hand/eye co-ordination. The impact on frame rates is just too high.

We have some of the cheap cardboard type glasses that you sometimes get free with magazines. I have tried them and they do actually work...a bit, better on some games than others but there was a noticable effect. Trouble is they gave me a headache and passing neighbours thought I'd gone nuts!!!!!!!!!
Still a low cost alternative worth a try.

I was thinking about these glasses for quite some time now. It really is great to get good info on these products that cuts through the advertising hype and gets to the meat of the matter.

Thanks for saving me the hassle and money guys.
