Splinter Cell Conviction - 3D Vision Fix

3D Vision Fix by mike_ar69

- Haloing/FOG/Smoke/Fire
- Shadows
- Lighting and various flickering issues
- Torches etc
- Put HUD at depth
- 2 Presets for convergence ("0" ).

Known Issues:
- Some parts of the Menu does display incorrectly
- The "Mission" image that's get projected onto stuff when you press "TAB" is at to high a depth
- Some issues with water refraction
- AO and some self shadows are a bit off
- Play the game with Environmental Detail on "Medium" - the game suffers (even without this fix) in 3D from lights turning on an off when the depth/convergence is high (actually not that high).  The game is still playable, it's just annoying seeing lights turn on and off depending on the angle of view etc.

Out the box I think this game looks terrible in 3D, shadows are all wrong, there is double imaging and lights are wrong in many places.  With the fix I rate it as "Good".  There are issues remaining, but these do not make the game unplayable.  The fix has been gathering dust for 3 months so I thought I would put it out there.  I have not played much of the game, so there may be many more issues, if so I might pick it up again.

1. Download this file:
2. Unzip into the following directory:

or whatever your Steam installation location is
3. Run the game

This patch was tested on Steam version.

PETITION: NVIDIA Driver later then 333.21 causes crashing in several Helixmod games. PLEASE SIGN

As of 334 series NVIDIA released "increased 3D support" in several games http://www.3dvisionlive.com/content/new-3d-vision-game-support
This is a method called depth buffer not normal 3D[geometry] which we see in "normal 3d games".  People generally refer to it as "fake 3D." We use depth buffer to fix things in certain games like crosshairs/etc. However, as of 334 series some games that we have this feature implemented in now crash. This problem not only breaks several older games but PREVENTS further implementation not to mention will prevent future cards from working with these games. Please sign this thread HERE to let NVIDIA know we need this issue resolved.

Games that can be effected include
DmC - Devil May Cry[Confirmed]
Mass Effect 2[Confirmed]
Aliens Colonial Marines.[Unconfirmed]
