Diablo III

Diablo III - by mana84

BEFORE
AFTER

Update:
Fixed shadows broken in newest patch~eqzitara

Description:
- shadows in caves and dungeons are fixed

Please, before using this fix read this warning.

I suggest to play this game rising the convergence up untill the cursor aligns with characters.

How to install:
extract "DiabloIII_fix.zip" archive in the "./Diablo III" directory of the game, required d3d9.dll is already included in the archive.

Editor Note
As of the latest driver. The profile for Diablo 3 was made incorrect by Nvidia. Please follow these instructions.[Instructions by Helifax|File by Skaut]
1) Download/open Nvidia Inspector.
2) Load up the new profile. (overwriting the current one).

FIX FILE HERE

If you experience any visual issues. ALT-TAB the game a few times till issues are resolved [minimize then maximize game]

  3. Nice job. I found the best way to adjust the convergence is to take off your glasses and turn it up there until your character looks 2D (count the taps between two images on one side of convergence until two images on the other and then go back half that amount). If you don't adjust convergence to your character, you'll see shadow separation on the ground.

    Convergence Adjustment: Open nVidia Control Panel; Set up Stereoscopic 3D; Set Keyboard Shortcuts; Show Advanced In-Game Settings; Check Enable Advanced In-Game Settings. Start game and use CTRL-F5 & CTRL-F6 to adjust. CTRL-F7 to save the settings for Diablo III.

  4. Thanks great work ;-)

    .. but Dark3D ( Sharpness Mod ) not works with this 3D Vision Fix ... Booth needs a Spezial d3d9.dll

    1. It works, just create a d3dsetting.ini file and just rename the Dark3d d3d9.dll to something else.

      Delete
    2. ok .. how with skyrim .. thanks :-)

      Delete
  5. in the DX9Settings.ini :

    [Preset1]
    Convergence = 0x42a8daa6
    Separation = 0x425ffffd
    UseSepSettings = true

    ProxyLib=D:\Spiele\Diablo III\d3d99.dll

    But nothing happens .. dont work.... booth dll´s are in the Diablo III Directory .. d3d9.dll ( The 3D vision Fix ) and d3d99.dll ( Dark3d )+ The Directorys darkD3_Shaders and ShaderOverride

    Mayby the name of the ini is wrong ? d3dsetting.ini or d3dsettings.ini

    the d3dsettings.ini are from dark3d

    Sorry for my Englisch im from Germany

    ReplyDelete
  6. Thanks for the fix! Shadows and water are much improved.

    Was wondering if it would be possible to adjust the convergence for the text, map, and HUD? When I set the convergence as Ron describes I find that some of the scene slightly pops-out beyond the HUD. And, was thinking that if the HUD slightly popped out as well it might be easier on my eyes.

    Thanks in advance.

  7. @Anonymous: I'm sorry but presets don't work even for me with this game.
    I've tried to make the hud to pops out, but there was a bug with bar's icons.. I'll retry and update the post if I can make this work.

  8. ... ok ... so did anyone manage to run both helixmod and darkd3 together? ... i've been reading as well that some d3dsettings.ini file is required but not sure how to rename things exactly or what to put inside it.

    1. I put your ME2 video on 3dvisionlive.com .People have given it lot of positive feedback. Just letting you know.

      Delete
    2. If you ever do another video for any game on site please let me know. I would love to add it.

      Delete
    3. Happy to hear that ... as for new videos i am on a second playthrough on ME3 and Mirrors Edge is on the list too ... i usually do a lot of footage capture during gameplay and if i will have the time afterwards will do some edits.
      Thanks again for the great work you guys are putting into this.

  9. I spent quite some time trying to marry them both up with no luck. This is the first game that I haven't been able to get HeliXmod working with injectFXAA.

    ReplyDelete
  10. To get DarkD3 working, I created a file called D3DSettings.ini

    In the file I have:
    [General]
    ProxyLib=C:\Blizzard\Diablo III\d3d9dark.dll
    UseEndScene = false

    That's all and it works for me. Make sure to rename your DarkD3 d3d9.dll file (mine is d3d9dark).

    1. Can anyone else confirm this so I can put it on the page?

      Delete
    2. doesn't works for me, i've made the ini file and changed the path to mine E:\Diablo III\d3d9dark.dll
      doesn't works...
      what am i missing ??

      Delete
  11. Yes .. it works

    But the Game slows Down with 3D Vision to jerky 30 FPS with or without any fixes and the Mouse make Problems when you use low Convergence ,but I have to use a low convergence because I usually prepare the houses and the trees in the background problems in my Eyes .. difficult to fix

    Generally the Game makes in 2D 60 FPS and with 3D 30 FPS... a kind of frame limiter by Blizzard.. its Possible Blizzard Fixes this with a Patch ... or the Comminity with a Mod.

    1. Thanx.

      Steady 60 FPS in 3D Here. I have 2 x 680's though. Maybe your video card is capping out.

      Delete
    2. hmm .. mayby... a have 1 X 570 @850 mhz , Intel 2600 @ 4,5 Ghz and 8 GB Ram

      But Skyrim runs @70 - 90 FPS by 2D with Texture Mods ... Diablo 3 is running in 2D by 60 FPS .. thats Something Wrong with Diablo 3 , i think its a Frame Limiter .. i never over 60 FPS but also never under 60 FPS ... Diablo is sure not so Hardware hungry as Skyrim with HD MOD´s or ?

      Delete
    3. I have a 570 too, but I'm not capped at 30 fps with 3d on. Have you tried setting power management to Max form adaptive?

      Delete
    4. Thats it ... the Max by power managment in the Nvidia Controll Panel .. thanks :-)

      Now i have 30 - 60 FPS .. but my PC hase strong to fight with D3 in 3D , maybe i must upgrade my Graphic Card ;-) in the average i have 40 - 45 FPS .. to small for smooth gameplay for me.

      But Thanks for the Tip ;-)

      Delete
    5. 2D 60 fps limit is still present..hmpf

      Delete
    6. Vsync In the Game Menu Off .. in the Nvidia Controll Panel Force VSync and in the Game Menu FPS Options full Throttle and i Have now 120 FPS @ 2D .. The 60 FPS Limiter is the In Game VSync Option.

      In 3D now i have 30 - 60 FPS

  12. For me, this makes the water flicker. Looks right in 3d now, but flickers. Shadows look great! Thanks for all your hard work!

    2. I have GTX 680 sli btw. SLI may be causing the flicker.

      Delete
    3. I looked at it on a single GTX 580, same thing, occasional flicker to fullbright on the water. Seems to happen more in the sewers. Nothing major really, I didn't turn off the override.

  13. Game crashes when I try to launch. Just downloaded patch 1.0.2 today so I'm assuming that broke the d3d9.dll

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I also just update to the 301.42 drivers if that would be causing the crash

      Delete
    2. I have newest drivers, I updated to 1.0.2.
      No crash.

  15. Standard shadows are broken after new patch or after new beta drivers - updated in the same time so i don`t know actually which one did it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Does this still work out of curiosity? I know diablo 3 died down alot but strange ive heard nothing.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Still working for me, although I'm in the same boat as others where I can't get DarkD3 working with this... then again, I couldn't get the SMAA injector working with Borderlands 2, neither, so the problem may lie between the chair & the keyboard ;) (although I'm generally pretty good at tweaking things).

  17. Shadows are broken for me.

    New beta drivers with patch 1.0.3.

    Replies
    1. Not sure to be honest, dont have game installed but to be honest I had 3 people say same thing since release. Reinstall driver then let me know.

      Delete
    2. OK. So the shaodws work, but certain shadows that pop in and out of the players view are broken. You can notice this in the town where you can walk by a lamp post near an inn. The sign of the inn casts a shadow on the ground but the fog is overlayed over it.. This causes the shadow to be rendered improperly. The character shadows are all fine.

      Delete
  18. since newest patch Helix Mod isnt working anymore. Shadows and a few objects are broken.

    ReplyDelete
  19. sorry, my fault. The "driver reinstall" hint worked :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. First off... THANKS! Works perfectly for me in 1920x1080. However, when I switch to multi-monitor 3D Surround (Nvidia GTX 690), some of the shadows are broken.

    Any idea why the change in resolution would make this happen?

    Wazoo

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Did you exit out of game then reboot at that resolution?

      Delete
    2. I tried multiple combinations of alt-tabbing out, restarting, etc. I even switch back to 1920x1080 and it works perfectly. But if running either WideScreen Fixer or Flawless Widescreen and running at multi-monitor res, the problem returns.

      Do you know of anyone who has successfully run on multi-monitor with shadows enabled? My best hope is that it is something with my setup or options that is fixable.

      Wazoo

      Delete
    3. Best option is to ask on nvidia 3d forum. I have no idea how the multi monitor stuff works.

  22. Hey there. Is it normal I can't get a good convergence value that works both ingame and in the menus? Once set to my liking in game and I come back to the menu, it looks distorted and I have to readjust the convergence. (i need 1 setting for the menu and 1 for in game).
    Thx for the help!

  30. ok, with the newest drivers 3D wont start on my Gtx 660, but the simple fix is just delete the profile using NvInspector, and the shadows will be fixed too, its amazing.

  35. Hey guys, im sorry im going to need a little help i am new to this. i know how to get doom working in 3d, installing the open gl files into the game directory in 3d surround gameing URL, and then extracting the files in the fix into the game folder. i want to try to get diablo 3 working in 3d, can someone give me the files i need to extract into the game folder, or a simple explanation what files i need. i extracted the FIX FILE into the diablo 3 folder, what else do i need now?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Just in case anybody still wants to play this (why not?), it seems to work just fine in 3D Vision even without the fix. You just have to remove the profile in Inspector. Crank up the convergence for a great experience!
