Any New Tech


Recommended Posts

I am always on the lookout for new, intresting technology. I was wondering have any of you seen anything new that is relevant to BlackShark or Lock On? Also anybody play this thing in 3d yet? Is it as cool as you would think it would be?

I need, I need, I need... What about my wants? QuickSilver original.

These titles are listed in the chronological order I purchased them.

Here, gaming in 3D the lasts three years whenever the game allows it. And, from my experience, whether it is cool or not it depends heavily on each individual. Also, it's difficult to set it up correctly, so most people give up before experience a single game with correct stereo-3D settings.

If you have a nvidia card you can have a taste of it with anaglyph glasses (red/cyan glasses), but the color is almost lost and is very uncomfortable for the eyes.

I played BS on anaglyph 3D all weekend. Was truely awesome. Really gave a sense of how high up I was and made judgement of speed much easier, didn't hardly need to check the VSI at all, and I'm pretty newb at BS. Felt like I was really "hanging in space in a little tin can"

 

I used iZ3D drivers on XP sp3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Downsides:

  • AA would NOT work at all
  • Frame rate almost halves. But AA was off so could have been worse, went from 40-60fps down to 16-30fps.
  • Red/Cyan vision made me feal like I'd been on medication all weekend
  • Red/Cyan vision made me see everything in red/cyan when not wearing them
  • Did I mention red/cyan vision was a bit annoying???111
  • After a while you get used to the 3D effect and it starts to look 2D again... !!?? but in red/cyan vision

2nd Best would be to get a thumping massive 120hz LCD monitor or LCD TV and get one of those nVidia shutter glasses kits. Problem is you need to be able to generate 120fps solid. So you need a Super Computer.

 

I saw the best 3d setup I believe on youtube. Consisted of a frex dome screen and a 3D LCD projector ....

 

Still, would be sweet to have polarised projector at home...

Bah, shutter glasses...

Just get two projectors, aim them at the same spot, but with polarization lenses. Then wear glasses with corresponding polarization.

 

Done. ;)

If you use nvidia shutters you can use their stereo drivers and you don't need to keep the fps so high. They stay synchronized at any fps.

Man this 3-D is great! I wish Real life was in 3-D! :happy:
Is that a joke? :)

 

Oh, and the buttkicker mentioned above, that's also a great thing to have. Sound is never again the same once you get use to feel it in your body. Even music!

At ITEC we also used these controls. I will post more info soon.

There is no doubt that having a collective with a reasonable length of travel improves control considerably.

Yeah I know it will sync to whatever your PC is generating :) but I read somewhere a few times that if you're not getting a good 60 FPS with 3D shutter glasses then you will get a headache so you need a 120hz monitor or TV. You can get cheap 100hz 1080p LCD TVs now. 50 FPS on 3D would be ok I imagine. But I don't have expereince with shutter glasses to confirm this.

It is not the same the refresh rate of the display than the frames per second of the game. You need 120Hz (60Hz per eye) for an acceptable flickering as the shutters close and open. The game can generate 1 fps or 200, it doesn't matter, the shutters will flick at 120Hz.

 

The stereo driver is responsible of displaying the correct frame for the correct eye. The iz3d driver can't do that yet, and if you use shutters with it the fps must be equal or above the display refresh rate or you may suffer from 'eye swapping'. Maybe the confusion comes from here.

 

I had shutters and used it with my old crt at 100Hz and it was perfectly acceptable... for me.

The problem is that LCD's doesn't refresh the display in a way you can use shutters with them even if the refresh rate is 100Hz. It's a total mesh if you'd try. These new 120Hz LCD's are designed on purpose to be usable with shutters so the refresh of the display is done in a way that it is compatible with them.

JimMack that link you provided shows everything but the price. How much is that helo set up?

 

Scratch that I see now it has not even been released yet. I bet it will be super expensive though.
