Will Pacific Fighters work well with shutter eyeglasses like E-Dimentional 3D glasses?

Has anyone tried this with Pacific fighters? What kind of video card will I need, and what kind of strain on the computer is this 3d effect?

Will 3D effects with the glasses slow down the game so much that you can't play it?

Hoping someone out there has tried this game with the glasses to tell us about their experience. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The E-Dimensional glasses work with PF but not in perfect landscape mode. I get about a 10-15fps hit with them, but my frames still stay above 50.

Though you may be lead to believe they can work well with other cards such as ATI, that is bogus - you want an nvidia card if you want 3D.

Personally, I think it's a waste of money though I do admit they do have a very high wow factor initially.

Thanks for the honest answer Slammin_ http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I would rather go for the Perfect water if I could get it. In the future though, when technology catches up with this sim I guess we could run the sim in Perfect with 3D glasses http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I have a 3.4GHz Prescott 1Gig of Dual Channel PC3200 RAM and just purchased a BFG 6800 Ultra OC. With updated drivers coming out from NVidia, and possible future PF patches that may optimize some things, I'm hoping I can run in Perfect mode with acceptable frame rates.

The biggest problem with 3D shutter glasses is the monitor.
Most people use a 1024x768 resolution ore even higher. So your monitor (and your graphiccard) should be able to make at least 140 Hz refreshrate (70 Hz for each eye) in your favorite resolution, otherwise you get bad headaches after 10 minutes.

I had a Elsa 3D revelator a few years ago and I can tell you, I destroyed my monitor by running this high refreshrate after half a year.
And this was a time when 15" and 17" monitors with 800x600 gaming resolutions where quite OK.

On the other hand the 3D Effect was unbelievable cool. You were able to follow your tracers into the deepth of space which was very useful for deflection shooting.
