Minecraft 1.7.10 in 3D Vision.

UPDATE: 31/08/2014 Hello all,
(This is my first post here so bear with me ^_^)

We (me and Mike_ar69) are proud to announce the release of MineCraft 1.7.10 rendered in Stereoscopic 3D with 3D Vision.

=========================
Contributors:
=========================

- Helifax - OpenGL - 3D Vision Wrapper and initial shader stereoscopy injection
- Mike_ar69 - Fixed alot of shaders effects : Shadows, Reflections, Sky etc (in SEUS shaders)
- Mike_ar69 - Created the Vanilla Minecraft Stereoscopic shaders (comes with the wrapper).


=========================
Installation:
=========================
- Go to 3D Surround Gaming (for simplicity sake I will post the fix just there. That way is easier to update).
- Download either the Java x86 or x64 version (based on which version of Java you are using).
- Install all the mods that let you play Minecraft with GLSL Shaders.
- Set the game to Window Mode.
- Install the wrapper (x86 if you are using Java x86 otherwise x64 for Java x64).
- Start the game and use "Mike Shaders.zip"
- Additionally, if you plan to install the SEUS pack, you will first need to convert them to stereo3D. (The creator doesn't allow redistributing the SEUS shader packs and thus the need for the converter tool. However he does allow the modifications of the shaders for personal use). The video tutorial on how to install the SEUS pack mod can be found here: Minecraft SEUS Pack - 3D Vision

Happy mine-crafting;))

    1. they added windowed resolutions to the drivers a while back. im using a gtx680 with 3dtv play. having issues with the controls being wierd after applying this patch, mouse being overly sensitive and motion being jerky, but it does display in stereo. i just tried it for 20 seconds so it might just need some tweaks on my end.

    2. In game press F3 and see what the FPS is being reported. the actual FPS you experience will be 1/2 that actually. I assume you have been through the Optifine optimizations for multi-core rendering and so on. With a 680GTX you should be at 100-120 recorded FPS (so an "actual 50-60"). I am on GTX 770 (basically the same card) and that is what I am seeing.

    3. i got it. the screwy controls occur if i run in 720p (which i prefer because 1080p only does 24hz refresh in 3d on my setup). if i run it in 1080p everything works right, aside from the sloth refresh rate.

  3. I normally don't ask for help here but I'm having a bit of an issue and have been waiting for this for years. When I start MC I do see the new banner for the 3D Vision mod and the green light turns on, however I do NOT see 'Mike Shaders.zip' listed under 'Resource Packs' and the game shows no stereo effects. What am I missing?

    1. Sorry, nevermind! I figured it out finally. I had to select 'Forge' as the profile on the MineCraft launcher window, and now I can see the 'shaders' button and select MikeShaders.zip. Thank you so much guys!

  4. Been searching here and there on this page and the OGL page, but it doesnt say anywhere on how to uninstall it if i want a clean re-install of Minecraft, I think i messed something up cause everytime i start minecraft it crashes... and ive tried to remove it normally by just deleting the roaming .minecraft folder.

    1. Replying to myself, spent the last couple of hours trouble shooting and the solution to the problem was reinstalling 32 and 64 bit java.
      I'll write it here just in case someone else encounters the same problem.

    2. Hi - sorry I am late replying. If/when you have problems with this fix, go to the jre/bin folder and rename the opengl32.dll file to something else (I usually make it "####opengl32.dll" or something) and that will entirely disable the fix. If you are familiar with batch files, you could write a really short batch file to do this for you to turn on and off the fix at will. From the sounds of the problem you describe, I think it may be that you had minecraft setup to be in full screen mode? If so, then before you install the fix, start minecraft and change it to windowed mode first, then exit, install the fix (or rename the dll etc) and then it should work. You have to resize the window after the game starts, because for some reason it always starts as a small window.
      Another thing to do, is make sure you have forge, and optifine installed and running before you install the 3D fix. You can check this by, in game, pressing "F3" and it will list the mods installed (I think).
      I hope you get it working.

    3. Thanks for the reply, I will try it again. And yeah i had fullscreen on... but it has been fixed now.

  6. Hello, Thank You for all that you do for us 3D Vision users, I was wondering if you could help me. First, the link on the Game Index page for the Minecraft fix is incorrectly going to the X Rebirth fix, please fix for the others.

    On to my real problem, I had the Minecraft 3D fix working a couple of weeks ago but only played for 10 minutes to test it. Unfortunately now it no longer works correctly, the left eye in my glasses goes dark and I get no 3D Vision effect, nor do I see doubling image on the monitor. I've tried re-installing Minecraft and tried both x86 and x64 fixes (yes I have the latest Forge and ShaderModCore) but I get the same result. Do you think it could be the Nvidia 344.11 drivers? The monitor goes into 3D mode as soon as I start Minecraft and my left eye goes completely dark. I'll try installing my previous drivers soon and post if I have success. Perhaps I'm missing something?

    1. Thanks for the feedback on the link.
      If you installed the new driver, did you go back to nvidia inspector and add the profile, then add javaw.exe back into it? If you did that already, I am not sure what the issue might be.

      Delete
    2. I just checked the link on the gamelist page on this blog and it brought me back here... Which game index page are you referring to?

      Delete
    3. Yes 344.11 is total crap, and could easily cause this problem. When I installed it, it poisoned my system such that I couldn't even install known good 320.49 driver, and had to clean it up with DDU in safe mode.

    4. was resolved when he mentioned it.

  7. Just reinstalled Nvidia 340.65 International driver set and your Minecraft 3D Vision fix IS working. I am using GTX 570 HD SLI. I wonder if anyone with one of the newer 900 series cards could test the new Nvidia drivers with this fix? I was planning on updating cards soon, if Nvidia's VR features are interfering or if it's simply my outdated hardware on these drivers I'd like to know. Thanks for your time guys.

    1. I'm also getting the black-left-eye with a GTX970 and can't downgrade the driver past 344.1

  8. Hey guys, does this work with 1.8? Also, I can't seem to find where to get Mike shaders.zip

    ReplyDelete
  9. wrapper doesn't work for 1.8.0. PLEASE SOMEBODY MAKE A FIX!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What is in 1.8 that makes it worth breaking 3D? Why not just run 1.7.10?

      Delete
    2. Well, one really good 1.8 server.

      Delete
  10. The converted SEUS works, but "Mike Shaders.zip" doesn't appear in my shaders list for some reason. Can I download it separately?

    ReplyDelete
  11. So looks like this will only run on 1.7.10? I've a modded 1.6 server I play on I'd love to use 3d on, I'm guessing this wouldn't work on that though?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No it won't work. It's the dependencies on Forge, GL Shaders, Optifine, etc. Also the installation in MC1.6 was all different.

  12. Hi,

    I am really new to this, so please be gentle ;)
    My new laptop had 3D Vision preinstalled, although it didn't come with any means to actually output 3D (shutter glasses or 3D capable screen).
    I've been playing around with Google Cardboard - which is really good fun by the way (for free!) - and I found a little program called Trinus Gyre, which will simply mirror the PC screen to your phone.
    Trinus Gyre has an option to double the regular screen output and display it side by side (and makes you able to look around in the game by emulating mouse controls). But that picture is of course not stereoscopic, hence this option is called "fake 3D".

    In your youtube tutorial, I saw the game switch between red/green and SBS mode, so would it be possible to output a real stereoscopic SBS picture over a tool like Trinus Gyre to Google Cardboard?

    Unfortunately I am right now in the middle of moving house and write this from my work PC or I would get to modding Minecraft right now...

  13. Answering to myself:

    Well it turns out there is a mod called Minecrift...
    and its doing exactly what i was looking for. Independent of graphics hardware.

  14. Hi Just wondering if there is plans to update for Java 8 and newer MC (1.8.3)? Currently works fine with MC 1.8, but it breaks when you install Java 8. Distance fog effects that werre finally fixed in MC1.8 break too but I imagine thats probably the shader mod. Thanks for the 3d patch though , MC is amazing in 3d well done.

  15. when i download the 3d wrapper x64 and x86 instead of getting a .exe i get a .rar.... any help with that please?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hey! :D I love the work you guys do here at Helix... One question though. When I install the mod etc, I launch minecraft but get a white screen after the wrapper splash screen (I don't see the mojang logo, though the game runs. I just see a white screen, the game gets to the menu, you can see that by randomly clicking and hearing the sounds). Help please? :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Seems that this game don't get fixes anymore.
    Last 3 posts are questions that still got no answer so i assume the fix don't work anymore on newer versions..
    Again a game that has no 3D...

    1. Looks like it's your turn to fix or update a game. Doing an update to a game is pretty easy, all you have to do is follow the same techniques/patterns and update new shaders that have broken.

      Delete
  18. For people saying this doesnt work with newer version of Minecraft. I can report 3dvision is working with MC 1.9 really well using this fix. No need for forge, you just need optifine it has included the shader mod now. This is how I did it

    download and install latest optifine

    Copy 3dvision patch into minecraft binaries folder and mikesshaders into shader folder as explained in installation guide

    Open your launcher , run the game using the optifine profile

    If 3d doesnt activate use nvidiainspector to add minecraft to a game with a 3d profile. You have to add javaw.exe to a profile, its in the folder you copied the fix into. Explanation of how to do this is in guides on this site. When stuck I have used max payne 3 profile. But now i use helifax's profile i found on a forum.

    It should be working now, if not search forums , they helped me to get it to work.

    I had broken water, to fix change to legacymode=false in 3dvisionwrapper.ini in the folder you copied the fix files to.

  19. I can report this works in the latest Minecraft 1.9.2

  20. I've never used any kind of mod for Minecraft before today, so perhaps I've missed some important step, but:
    *Downloaded the files linked to here.
    *Pasted the x64 files into the folder with java.exe.
    *Put the shaders ZIP into a newly created shaders folder.
    *Grabbed Optifine since that seemed the way to load shaders in Minecraft.
    *Start Minecraft with Optifine profile, choose Mike_Shaders.zip.
    *It plays in regular 2D. *shrug*

    1. Partially figured out. The x64 files in Java's main Program Files appearance, no. But the one within the Minecraft subdirectories, yes. When I run Minecraft I get the window about 3D Vision support, running it in windowed mode, etc. However, after that the game screen is totally black whether it's windowed or full screen. Music still plays and buttons seem blindly clickable, though.

    2. Wirehead:
      Thanks so much for the update and instructions. I can confirm that your steps produce 100% effective results. Much appreciated as I never could get the steps for 1.70.10 to work for MONTHS!
      To add a bit of clarification for those getting black screens: (which happened to me)
      1. Download/install Optifine 1.9.X
      2. Add Mike's Shaders to /.minecraft/shaderpacks/
      3*** RUN MINECRAFT. GOTO OPTIONS>VIDEO OPTIONS>SHADERS AND SELECT MIKE'S SHADERS.
      4*** EXIT MINECRAFT
      5. Instal 3D Vision Fix files to your appropriate folder, (example, Program Files > Minecraft\runtime\xxxxxx\xxxxx\bin)
      6. Add javaw.exe (java/bin folder again) just as Wirehead said, with the nVidia inspector utility. I used the Max Payne 3 Profile since I could not locate the Helifax profile he found elsewhere. If somebody could point that out to me I would be much appretiative. :-)

      Done! That's it! ?I realy wish this tutorial was out sooner as it would have saved me major headaches! Just thankful, again, to Wirehead for pointing out that Optifine supports shaders at the very latest time of release! So awesome.
