  1. Hey thanks for the fix.
    Got a relatively big error though: Whenever i use the "sense" action (on the traps in the very beginning for example) the whole screen breaks down to flickering lines. I can still see the usual window, that gets bigger with every time a new sense object is used. Sometimes i can still see some of the surrounding environment during this but the picture error is always there.

    4. I am sure there are at least a few things that may of gone missed but game is nearly flawless in 3D and I don't plan to spend more time on it especially since the game has a pretty bad auto-save system that makes this very hard.

    5. Hi, thx for the fix, i want to say that there is an update that fix savagame problem and some stuffs.. by the way i think this game will be a 3D reference experience and for gpu benchmarking also.

  3. Big thanks! I preordered it due to what the dev said ... I won't lie I initially did want to give them crap over issues needing to be fixed but since you asked us not to in the previous post I'll respect your wishes ... Thanks again Eqzitara! :D

  8. Thank You very much for the fix!
    Does it make a difference whether I use a SLI/Non-SLI system? I play on non-SLI and just discovered a minor issue with distant wafts of mist (looking from the railroad bridge to distant mountains). I wondered if the reason for this could be the fact that the fix was made for SLI...

    1. Update: Just restarted the game and the issue was gone... Well, it's a mystery-thriller ^^

  9. Where can I donate? It's a shame that you care more about 3D Vision than Nvidia itself. We all really appreciate your work.

    1. You can always unlock convergence. You might not be able to save it.

      Make sure to do this if having issue

      Go to..C:\Users\..\Documents\my games\The Vanishing of Ethan Carter\AstronautsGame\Config\AstronautsEngine.ini

      AllowNvidiaStereo3d=True

    2. That's OK now, I couldn't change it first time i played, I restarted and convergence is unlocked.

  14. Holy crap (my pants)! This game looks amazing with your 3D fix. Can't thank you guys enough for keeping the 3D vision gaming alive!!

  15. Another amazing game with beautiful graphics which really only come to shine in 3D. Sad that developers spend so much time, creating such wonderful art but completely forget the 3D immersion.

    Thanks!

  16. I got it working perfectly yesterday but now I'm having water effects bugs. Any ideas? Thanks for the fix anyways, it's amazing when working.

  17. Hey thanks so much for this. I thought The Vanishing of Ethan Carter was amazing out of the box 3d, but I was getting shadows on things like power lines if I cranked up the 3d, with this fix though everything is really sweet, truly amazing gaming experience, thank you!

    Rocky.

  18. Anyone provide any guidance about implementing this fix with the new UE4 version of Ethan Carter (Ethan Carter Redux)? I looked for the various folders to make ini changes and place files, but...the folder structure has changed I guess? Or is 3D not even a possibility with the game being changed to UE4? Just wondering...

    1. Seem to be broken on UE4, but fortunately ships as a different version, so fix still works for playing:

  22. First, Hi!! Thank you for all the amazing fixes!! I'm new to 3DTV Play, and thanks to you guys, I'm experiencing game in a whole new world! You guys are amazing!! Thank you.

    Second, when I'm downloading this file, Google Chrome say this file could be dangerous, it may contain malware. Can you guys check to see what's going on? It is safe to download? Thank you.

    1. Google Chrome will say dangerous files on many types of files regardless of contents since it doesnt actually scan.

      .rar / . zip will always be reported.

    2. I see. Thank you so much! You guys are literally, 3D gaming savior!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. This fix doesn't works with Redux version?! Please could any one give us some help?! There is no "AstronautsGame" folders inside the "The Vanishing of Ethan Carter" folder... Just bought this to play on 3d Vision...
