Fix by Stryker_66
months, Steam has been working with some publishers/developers to patch out
GFWL (Games for Windows Live) from their games which has caused me to revisit
some of my older titles. I had a look at Red Faction Guerrilla and like many
games, it has issues in 3DVision. I used the Helixmod debugger to remove some
Note: For Steam version of the game, turn
off the shadows in game settings and at launch run the game in DX9 mode. I've also
disabled motion blur and depth of field in game since I don't like those features in any
game. You can enable them if you prefer.
1.) Use NVidia
Inspector to remove the Red Faction Guerrilla profile
the "rfg.exe" executable to the Prototype 2 profile
If you are
unfamiliar with NVidia Inspector, I would highly recommend downloading it and
learning how to use it. It is invaluable for 3D Vision gaming. There is a great
guide on how to use NVidia Inspector here.
contents of Red_Faction_Guerrilla_3D_Shaders_Removed.zip file to where the
"rfg.exe" file is. (i.e. \Red Faction Guerrilla) In my case it is
Steam\SteamApps\common\Red Faction Guerrilla\
The fix: Red_Faction_Guerrilla_3D_Shaders_Removed.zip
switch/change two convergence settings with keys "0" &
"9". Simply select key and adjust your convergence and then Ctrl + F7
to save as you would normally with NVidia convergence save feature. You can then switch
back and forth while in game. I included this because I prefer to have a
convergence setting when I am on foot and another for when in a vehicle.
learn more about multiple convergence settings here and you can customise key
changes in the DX9Settings.ini file.
4.) There are
also optional FOV files that can be found here.
The FOV I
am using is set to 90 and I personally like it because I can see my main
character in full. The author for the FOV settings has a few different files from the above link that
you can try for alternate FOV settings. The setting of FOV 90 works great for the toyification effect. This is my preferred
setting when in a 3rd person perspective.
lastly, if any shader whiz kids want to fix or have a look at the shaders, I
included the shader dumps here. These are the offending shaders I found and
disabled. There may be others since I have not played through the entire game.
Please feel free to fix since a fix is more desirable than removing
Original Vertex Shaders
know how fix yet, but decided to start dabbling to see where I can go from here.
this great community, 3DVision lives on…
