Hi,

I want to share an application with you I’ve been working on for a while. It’s called "3D Fix Manager" and the reason I developed it is that I wanted to have a more comfortable way for installing 3D Vision Fixes and an easier method for editing hotkeys in order to change 3D separation / convergence settings.


So which features does 3D Fix Manager provide?

  • Download, install and uninstall 3D Vision fixes with only 1 click
  • Clear GUI
  • Comfortable hotkey editing for changing 3d separation / convergence in game
  • Automatic detection of installed 3D Vision games
  • Start games directly in 3D Fix Manager
  • Auto backups of hotkeys / ini files
  • Auto enable Nvidia Stereosopic 3D when starting a game
  • Simple activation of Compatibility Mode (also known as Fake 3D) for any DirectX 11 game
  • Auto installation of 3D profiles with Nvidia Profile Inspector when starting a game
  • RivaTuner Statistics Server support. Dynamically load or close RTSS when launching a game for improving performance in Stereo 3D
  • Auto disable 3D Fixes when playing in 2D mode
  • Auto update for new fixes
  • Auto update for new program versions


Currently more than 550 fixes from http://helixmod.blogspot.com are supported by 3D Fix Manager. This includes Helix Mod (DirectX 9), 3dMigoto (DirectX 11) and OpenGL 3D Vision Wrapper.


Limitations:

  • Hotkey editing is only available for Helix Mod and 3dMigoto fixes at the moment. Hotkey support for OpenGL fixes may come in the future.


Manual:

  • A detailed manual can be found here: http://fixmanager.rentus.de. Please have a look to the section "Problems and Solutions" if you experience any issues


Download:



Instructions:

  1. Extract file archive. If you want to keep old hotkey backups from previous versions then extract the archive over the old program folder and replace files

  2. Optional: Download and install RivaTuner Statistics Server for accessing all features in 3D Fix Manager. RTSS eliminates micro stuttering, reduces input lag and improves frametimes in Stereo 3D mode

  3. Start the application with "3DFixManager.exe"

  4. Optional: Give admin rights to the application (right click on exe / run as admin). The application needs admin rights for installing fixes to protetected folders like c:\program files


Known Issues:

  • Detection of installed games may fail if no corresponding registry keys could be found. To fix this either enable search paths in the application settings or set a custom install path for the individual fix profile. Please have a look in the manual (section "problems and solutions") for a more detailed information on this.

  • Another reason for not detecting games is when the name of the individual fix profile does not match the title of the game retrieved from the windows registry. Try to rename the fix profile to match exactly what is listed in "Windows Control Panel / Programs"

  • If you want to support this project you can donate to this PayPal account: duselpaul86@gmx.de


Notes:

  • Please help me to improve this application by reporting bugs, wrong / outdated fix profiles or if you have any suggestions. Thank you.

  • I tested the application a lot and I think it’s in a good state. However I take no responsibility if any damage should occur on your machine by using this application. Use at own risk. :)

This is amazing! Thank you very much for doing this. May I add a suggestion for the next update? It would be nice to be able to change the install directory of each game in it's individual profile in your app. Example. I have watchdogs 2 installed on a different drive (F:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\Games\WATCH_DOGS2) than the default install location, thus, the app doesn't detect it as installed. Infact, I don't have many games installed in their default location as I'm sure many of us don't either. I hope that made sense. I just woke up a little while ago and only had one coffee. hehe. Thanks again Pauldusler

Thanks again Pauldusler[/quote] Hi mrallroy, the application looks in the registry for installed games and install locations. I did not test this game yet because I don't own it yet but maybe there is an error in the fix profile. The game title from the registry is compared against the name in the fix profile. When this name does not exactly match the game is not detected as installed. So maybe the name in the fix profile is wrong (maybe the underline?. Please look in the help section under "PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS". I described this problem there. So you could try to change the game title in the fix profile from Watch_Dogs 2 to Watch Dogs 2? (In steam store it's with "_". Could you please look for the name in windows control panel / programs and tell me the exact name? I will correct it then and ship a fix profile update. I think for the next update I will make a field for custom install paths. So when the game is not found there will be a fallback to the user defined path :)

Maybe I should kill all whitespaces before comparing the name in the program code xD. This may come in the next update and the field for custom install path. Thanks for the feedback :)

I just created a new account to inform you (thread is still available with the searchbox). It seems that the automatic spam filter from nvidia did this (don't know why xD). I Already sent an e-mail to the forum support in the hope that this thread shows up again very soon.

Hope they unflag my account soon. Otherwise I recreate this topic with my new account in a few days.

My account was unflagged by nvidia at last :). It was indeed the spam filter which gave a false positive. Hope my account will not get flagged again. In the meantime I have released the first update for the application (version 1.01). You can read the change notes on the download page which is linked in the topic.
