Dead Space 2 - 3D Vision fix

Dead Space 2 - 3D Vision fix.

Now it can be played with any convergence/separation settings with all effects on/max exclude flares(flares still cause some problems).

What's fixed:
- Shadows;
- Lights;
- HALO's.

Tested only with Origin version of the game.
Let me know if it doesn't work for other version of the game.
This fix required last  version of the DLL (updated today).
Screenshots.

Download:

Fixed shaders.
DLL.



How to install:
Place d3d9.dll, DX9Settings.ini and "ShaderOverride" folder to the game directory ("\Games\Dead Space 2\" where "deadspace2.exe" located).


If you have crashes or you're using EVGA(with compatibility option on), try this dll.


Don't forget to turn off Origin in-game setting before starting game. Or it will crash.
Steam MAY crash as well. If it does click here

  1. Looks perfect...I set convergence on the gun site. Using 100% depth. Great 3D FPS experience!

    1. Hi,
      When you say 'Convergance on the gun site' - Can you explain what that means?

      Also while playing Dead Space 2 in 3D - did you get pop-out effects that i see when i run the Stereoscopic 3D Test, where the words NVidia pops out beautifully!!

  13. Hoping someone can help me out. I'm having a really hellish time trying to find some good settings. Whenever I set the convergence so the mouse cursor in the pause menu aligns just right, meaning I can focus on a word and the cursor at the same time without either one losing focus (this also makes the chapter popups not flicker). This seems to effect me in a few ways.

    1. The weapon cursor looks OK when I look at walls/objects at a distant, but the cursor will split into two if I point at a wall/object that's basically 1 meter in-front of me.
    2. When I'm focusing on the actual cursor/have my back against the wall/doing both, my character model will split/ghost into two.

    If I try to set the convergence to match either one of these elements (The pause menu, weapon cursor, fix the character glow), 1 or 2 things will always be thrown off in the process.

    Just wondering if it is possible to get every one of these elements perfect? Or are some of these problems just unavoidable? Or maybe my eyes just don't seem to work well with 100% depth. Though, I did try various depth settings from 50%-20% but the problem was always there, just less exaggerated.

    I hope what I tried to explain wasn't too confusing. Would greatly appreciate any help so I can hopefully enjoy this game in all it's glory.

  14. Looks like I over-explained that after reading into it more. Seems I'm experiencing crosstalking/ghosting. The more depth I add the more noticeable it is. And I got around the weapon cursor issue just by using the 'Classic' aiming mode. Which is much better suited for playing in 3D.

    1. Sorry, I tend to miss some posts.

      Dead space is a very dark game. However like any game their is lighting. So basically lots of whites/ lots of darks. Contrast makes crosstalk/ghosting worse depending on display. I cant say from what display you have due to it may be an older model but try to adjust contrast.

    1. Many Thanks for the great hard work Helix !
      Dead Space 2 is now fantastic in S3D ...
      Sure Nvidia and the devs should pay you !

  16. You did a GREAT job with this mod... Thank you for all the hard work.

    I'm curious to know if there is a fix for playing the game in 3D vision surround. It seems all the hard work put into the mod is broken with Nvidia Surround resolutions. If not... no problem.

    Thanks again for the fantastic mod and all the hard work put into it.

    1. No list.


      Isnt REO:RC good in 3d? Thought it was same engine as RE:5.
      Sleeping dogs is dx11.

      Delete
    2. Also is REO:RC convergence locked?(it also says excellent as rating)
      If so it doesnt even matter because convergence unlocker breaks Helix's debugger.

  18. Seriously, I have to thank you guys a thousand times!!

    I loved DS/DS2 the first time I played it, except it was basically unplayable in S3D. But your fix solves like 99.9% , OK I still get a few glitches here and there, but still, totally playable now. Shame on those big shots like nvidia or EA who can't / won't bother to fix their game, while you do it for free.
    Anyway, thanks again!! I'll be sure to check your site in the future, and send it to my friends!!

  19. Brilliant work Helix, your the man!

    Only issue I have noticed is flickering credits during opening sequence. Apart from that awesome
    experience.

  20. When I put the files into the Dead Space 2 folder, it crashes on startup. :/

    ReplyDelete
  21. Nevermind, that Steam file EVGA fix did the trick.

  22. Everything looks great except for reflections in windows have a texture on it that doesn't move relative to Isaac. It's a static texture that makes the reflection look really messed up.

  23. Just curious if you have any plans to fix Dead Space 3? I'm currently replaying Dead Space 2 in 3D thanks to you guys and this awesome mod. I'd actually buy 3 if you get a fix for that too. You guys are my heroes!

  24. I tried your mod for the first time today, Dead Space 2. I've been running Nvidia 3D for a several years, and I must say. This is absolutely magnificent work! Thank you so much, I really appreciate the time and effort you put into this mod and the ease with which it can be utilized. You are a saint.

  27. Hi,
    first off: thanks for this fix that gives a perfect 3D vision for me

    one issue: in Steam, with this fix (EVGA, because the other crashes my game), the overlay and screenshot feature do no longer work

    please, is this a known issue?
    is there a fix or do I simply have to live with that?

    thanks

    1. For some games / certain people.
      Steam overlay will cause a crash and will need to be disabled.

    3. Try using just the DLL from the DS3 fix. That worked for me, and allows Steam overlay.

      Also of note, use the original deadspace2.exe to avoid all the free DLC that makes it too easy.

    4. Не понимаю, почему сами разработчики не делают свои игры под 3d. Dead Space 2 от Helix выглядит просто фантастически!

  29. Excellent work! I have a question tho, is there a way to set up a key to swap between 2 or 3 different convergence presets just like Dead Space 3?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Should be possible by editing the DX9Settings.ini file. Use the DS3 file as an example.

    2. No, each patch uses different version of helixes wrapper. Too many changes for that to work.
