https://www.dxx-rebirth.com/ is another Descent 1/2 source port which already has stereoscopic display support, could VorpX leverage that?
The source code is at:
Build environment on windows:
pacman -S gcc pkgconf scons SDL SDL_image SDL_mixer libpng physfs
Compile with stereoscopic support:
Run with stereoscopic support:
In this mode, the game will render in a vertical split-screen, if that output is fed into VorpX, it just might work?Nov 4, 2022 at 11:20am #213614RalfKeymaster
There is a regular profile for D2X-XL, which works fine.
If you still want to try dxx-rebirth:
I uploaded a general purpose SBS 3D base profile to the cloud. Should work with pretty much anything that has native SBS (or Over-Under) 3D output.
- Download the ‘SBS 3D Base [vorpX]’ profile from the Cloud Profiles page in the config app.
- Switch to the Local Profiles page and make a copy of the downloaded base profile
- Assign d1x-rebirth.exe to the copy.
Caveat: There is no 100% guarantee that creating profiles that way works. I briefly checked the regular non-stereo dx1-rebirth with the profile, which seemed to work when run windowed. Freezed on launch in fullscreen mode though.Nov 7, 2022 at 10:19pm #213654RJK_Participant
Nice to see that people still play D1/D2 :-)
@Ralf , have you tested that SBS Profile with dxx-rebirth ?
PS: I also have an SBS OpenGL profile for “Stereo Photo Maker” on the cloud,
which may work with “-gl_stereo” too.
Not shure if its different to “SBS 3D Base [vorpX]”, just wanted to mention it.
… could be interesting to test openGl games in general with “-gl_stereo” and those profiles. Some may even support that without having us told ;-)Nov 7, 2022 at 11:27pm #213658RJK_Participant
Just a little hint, there are quite some games providing SBS, one i have tested tonight with the SBS VorpX Profile worked right away https://www.vorpx.com/forums/topic/polynormal/ .
You may search for “-gl_stereo” gamelist on Google.Nov 8, 2022 at 9:22am #213659RalfKeymaster
I don’t think there is much of a difference to any prior profiles you got working with SBS 3D.
Was just a bit difficult to find a base profile with SBS input enabled. The general purpose SBS profile is mainly intended to make that easier. Works with all supported APIs, i.e. DX9-12, as well as OpenGL.Feb 14, 2023 at 7:04pm #215188agParticipant
Thanks, without reply notifications I missed all your replies :)
Got it to work, thanks much for the instructions @Ralf.
A question on SBS:
Is there a reason SBS options aren’t available by default in VorpX in-game menu on the Image Settings tab?
