Download the fix: 3Dfix-Life+is+Strange-2015-10-21.zip

Update 2015-02-01

  • Added subtitle depth adjustment (see below)

Fixed

  • Halos
  • Fog
  • Shadows
  • Glow around sun
  • Approximate fix for bloom around lights (Press H to change to an alternate adjustment that places these at infinity)
  • Light shafts
  • Reflections on ground
  • Clipping on decals
  • Convergence is increased to 50.0 by default. To save a custom setting, press plus on the number row before adjusting the convergence, then press F7 to save.

Installation

Unpack the zip file under:

...\Steam\SteamApps\common\Life Is Strange\Binaries\Win32

Subtitle Depth Adjustment

I recommend disabling the subtitles in the settings, but if you prefer to play with them enabled you may adjust their depth with the keys on the number row. This adjusts the subtitles and menus, but can cause in-world HUD elements to flicker momentarily when at a certain distance from the camera, so it is disabled by default. tilde sets screen depth, 0 sets 99.5% and 1-9 sets anywhere between. Press minus on the number row to disable the adjustment and return to the game's default depth.

Notes

  • I played on high quality and have not checked for issues on lower settings.

    1. The fix will need to be updated - I'll need to play all the way through episode 3 before it's ready. All going well I should have it done in the next day or two.

  14. I've just updated the fix for episode 3. There's a few issues with halos around lights being at the wrong depth in the early section (at night), which I probably won't be able to fix 100% without breaking other lights.

    1. DarkStarSword is on vacation at the moment, but given his stellar track record at updating the fixes, you can expect a fix at some point. Please be patient.

  17. Are the side by side graphics just examples, or is there some way to actually display this? I'm not having any luck getting side by side with nVidia 3d, is there some other way to get this?

    1. If you have the 3D Vision plugin installed it should display in 3D inside the browser - at least it does in Firefox and Internet Explorer (IIRC Google killed support for it in Chrome earlier this year). Alternatively you could save them as .jps files and use 3D Vision Photo Viewer to view them (beware - I took them on a 17" monitor with 100% separation, I don't recommend displaying them in full screen if your monitor is larger than that). Here are direct links to those screenshots that you can save:

      If that works better for you, you can use this userscript to add a download button to them:

    2. all Episode shadow are broken,driver 353.30,use nv inspector apply LifeIsStrange.exe to LifeIsStrange game profile.but in game 3dvision display unkonwgame.
      i also try tridef 3d with deadpool profile........shadows are ok but light gl,ass reflection are broken

    3. when i change the convergence parameter,i can see the fix is trying to fix game light .only shadows are broken.i can't update my driver,

      this the link ,run exe in the main folder.
      but i find another Chinese patch work with you fix,so no need to waste you time to make them work together.
      i was playing 3d game for 3years ,there is another problem that bothers me in all fps game,
      can we force gun model rendering in 2d to play all fps game?
      high convergence in fps game will give us best experience,but it will affect close objects.
      gun model has too much separation make the game unplayble.
      i think cm mode doesn't affect gun,i found dying light fix using that in real 3d.

      and Crysis 2 3 fix could use console command to disable gun model.

      i am also a tridef3d user,tridef3d.....all COD game ,Crysis,metro,can force gun model rendering in 2d,and auto convergenc in scene,but other fps game are like 3dvision render.
      i really want to Ignore gun model,because I want experience the scene,not convergence a big gun in my face.....
      just a hope you can find way to solve this

  22. What is "number row"? The keys next to the backspace key?
    I'm using a japanese keyboard, I don't have a + nor tilde key in backspace key row. How can I change that to other keys?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, "number row" refers to the numeric keys next to backspace and above qwertyuiop, whereas "number pad" refers to the keys that are separated off to the side near number lock.

      You can change the keybindings by editing the DX9Settings.ini file - look for the various [KEY*] sections and edit the line "Key = xx", but it's a little tricky as you need to find the virtual key code and translate them into decimal.

      For letters and numbers on the number row refer to the 'Dec' column of the first chart, for other keys refer to the second link, but you will need to translate them from hexadecimal to decimal (you can use microsoft calculator for this):

      You will need to restart the game for any changes to take effect.

  23. Hey everyone
    My first try with Helixmod with this game
    But its a failure
    Whereas I install 3dTV and copy the files in the right folder, nothing different when the game is launch.
    Im using a 3d projector
    Am i missing something ?

    Thanks for the help

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Are you able to use other Helix Mod or 3DMigoto fixes from this site? Are you using nvidia 3D TV Play with the projector? Be sure to set the resolution to 1080x720 60Hz for 3D TV Play to work.

    1. Extract *everything* in the zip file to the Binaries\Win32 folder inside where Life Is Strange is installed. If you don't know where it is installed, right click on it in the Steam game list -> Properties -> Local Files -> Browse Local Files

  26. Thank you so much!!! You guys actually make a difference to this technology and help us make use of our hardware when nvidia abandoned us!! I dont know what else to say except all the good you guys do will come back to you guys. Im very impressed and surprised at the fact that there are people out there who put in their precious time and share it with other people out of the goodness of their heart. Not for money!! thanks again. You guys are awesome!!
