Thanks for this very nice bonus feature Ralf (and Grocs!), it’s very useful for people like me who get sick very quickly when playing FPS in VR.
I’m doing some SBS videos using it; I hope it’ll get you more gamers interested in VorpX & buying it! ^^

In answer to your earlier questions around 3D TVs:
Any TV that supports 3D should work but I find the passive 3D TVs the best in my experience. They seem to be mainly made by LG, and to be honest you may not find a new 3D TV. The last time LG supported 3D was from their 2017 models I believe. Passive 3D means you can just use the 3D glasses similar to the ones found in cinemas (polarised 3D).
My TV for example is this one – https://www.lg.com/au/tvs/lg-65UB950T
Other manufacturers like Sony or Samsung used Active 3D, which meant you had to use special 3D glasses that were powered by a small battery.
HDMI usually works fine and that is what I’m using for my PC.
Most games are in widescreen these days. I haven’t seen any black borders on all of the games I’ve played. Half SBS normally means there is no change in the ratio. In Vorpx’s case if you are using a G3D supported profile it renders the image twice (requiring more CPU power of course).
Normal distance is fine. I usually sit about 2.5 metres away from the TV. Darker rooms benefit when viewing 3D.Mar 8, 2020 at 6:59am #193054picklefart9Participant
Thanks Ralf and team for enabling this option!
I originally bought for VR but when I realized it had a Generic TV option, I tried it immediately.
It works wonders! I have it running with my DLP-Link projector and the video is even being sent over to the project via a Steam Link.
(For those who haven’t tried Path of Exile with this, check it out – it has bigger effect than I expected. Looks great in a VR immersive mode too, feels like you’re controlling a marionette.)Mar 14, 2020 at 5:14pm #193213RJK_ParticipantSep 25, 2020 at 3:02pm #197015blackbassParticipant
First of all, thanks for this amazing feature; I bought VorpX 4 months ago to replay Half Life saga in VR and finally enjoy Half-Life Alyx (a masterpiece) and after I found that Half Life in VR was a little nauseating, I tried to play it on my LG 3D Screen and… it was way beyond expectation!
I think I will play more and more games that way, since it so immersive and relaxing at the same time!
This post is to understand better how this mode works to get the best from it, since I recently got a new 4k HDR 3D tv from LG (so bad that they stopped making them) so I’d like to know how to setup in game resolution to get the best performances.
Since at the TV is sent an SBS image, If i set the game to 4k VORPX will render 2 times a 4k scene (overkilling my Vega 64 graphic card) or it will render a total 4k scene?
Is there any tweak or hint to get the best from this mode?
Thanks very much for your support!
