Dark Souls 3 - 3D Vision Fix


!!!!! USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!!
It will NOT DESTROY YOUR HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE!!!

It seems there was a server bug that made my account get the "Invalid Data" warning. The warning was removed on the latest patch. So, it was a False Positive.

===================
3D Fix Config Options: 
===================
- In "d3dx.ini" file, you can control the UI push/pop-out using the "[Constants]" section and X parameter.
DO NOT MODIFY ANY OTHER PARAMETER!!!
- In the "[Key]" Section you can bind other keys for the below shortcuts


===================
3D Fix Shortcut Keys: 
===================
Keyboard + Mouse:
- F1 key - toggle between convergence of 2.3 (RECOMMENDED VALUE) and 1.0 (used in certain cinematics to be actually see them).
- C key - Different UI depth for BOW Aiming.
- F2 key - Disable/Enable GOD-RAYS in some locations as they can look wrong.

XBOX Controller:
- XB_LEFT_THUMB key - toggle between convergence of 2.3 (RECOMMENDED VALUE) and 1.0 (used in certain cinematics to be actually see them). Need to hold for 750ms to take effect!
XB_DPAD_UP key. - Different depth for BOW Aiming. Need to hold for 250ms to take effect!


==================================
Enabling Different Video OUTPUT modes: 
==================================
- In "d3dx.ini" file, find this line: ";run = CustomShader3DVision2SBS"
and change it to:
"run = CustomShader3DVision2SBS"
- Use the "F11" key to toggle between modes! (in 3D Surround the above option should be OFF or it will "murder" your FPS).

  1. If I ever finish DS2 SOTFS, I'll definitely be checking this out (DS3 by then should be on sale; with that one I'm 100+ hours in and about 60% through). I prefer to play this one offline, so it sounds like I will be OK. Thanks! Not sure if you were involved in the SOTFS fix, but I was tearing my hair out with Geforce 3D Profile Manager. Profiles would not 'take' until I discovered I needed to run that program as admin, even though I'm always admin.

  5. with 3dtv play enabled in the nvidia panel, i have this bug in 2D : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CAy_Zjtuus
    and it is worse in 3D !
    without 3dtv play activated, no problem but of course impossible to play in 3D : perhaps a problem with drivers 361.43 in 3dtv play

    1. Strange... Is that a Steam version of the game? or something cracked/hacked?

      Delete
    2. Also, just posting a picture with no actual description or text or whatever will not help you here mate.
      Check your game and such.
      If is not a Steam version sorry about you, but you need a Steam version!

  9. It keeps crash..even if I somehow get it launch, all objects just look like a bare Dark soul 3 with 3d vision along with blue color problem.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Remove the fix using uninstall.bat to start with. Make sure the base game plays properly, and the right resolution you want, and right settings. Next make sure that it works when 3D Vision is enabled, but no fix installed. Only AFTER the game is running should add the fix.

      The blue color problem is most likely you have the wrong profile. You can tell that without with the fix installed.

      It's working for other people- something is wrong with your setup.

  11. Hey, as there is SBS support - would it be somehow possible to set up 3840x2160@1x60@SBS (using 3DTV-Play or some hack that works over HDMI 2.0)? I think that would be way more playable than 1080p@2x30/720@2x60 @3D-FS.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is there a way to adjust the VK_F1 convergence depths with custom depths of our preference? The default is 2.3, 1.0 I would like to make the convergence a little higher but no matter what values I add it makes no difference in the game. How can we customize this setting to our liking?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Edit the d3dx.ini file, and look for the VK_F1 setting in text. You can change the numbers there to anything you like. Be sure to match the syntax of the command. Since it's a 'cycle' type, you can also try adding more variants to the list.

  13. 3d vision stopped working for me after today's nvidia driver update. Anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If a game ever stops working with driver install in 3D.
      3d vision sometimes doesnt install properly.
      Just reinstall via clean install.

      Delete
    2. Working perfectly fine here on 368.22 driver
      Tested on 3 machines...

      Delete
  14. yeah its definitely not working for me now.. I did several clean install using a driver cleaner tool in safemode on top of clean install in nvidia's software. I get the same results; no 3d vision with today's drivers.

    1. Just tried Dark Souls 1 3D vision and that game works perfectly; definitely something up with DS3 now.

      Delete
    2. Apologies for the multiple posts; just tried two other games in 3D Vision and they both work perfectly as well. Seems like the latest Nvidia drivers 368.22 broke Dark Souls 3 3D Vision. All of my other games including DS1 & 2 work perfectly fine. For some reason DS3 doesnt work correctly.. Not sure what else to do.

    4. There is a profile in one of the links above.
      You need to add it again for the fix to work... Maybe, I should add it to the original description, or people should try to READ the comments a bit;)) It always provide info;)

      Hope you got it sorted;) (I think you did, if I remember right) ^_^

      Delete
  15. I did, user error. CTRL + ALT + F11 "Toggle 3D Compatibility Mode". For some reason other games didn't require that step but DS3 needs for you to hit CTRL + ALT + F11 at the start of a freshly installed driver in DS3. I believe this was mentioned in your release notes somewhere that I may have overlooked. This may be helpful for other 3D Vision DS3 players that have that same issue I had.

  16. menus in this game are broken with high convergence. any way to just make them flat? with high convergence the icons shift too much

  17. how can I play Dark Souls 3 with 3dtv play in 1080p 24Hz Full screen?

    1. Should be possible. Best bet is to ask on the Geforce forum referenced above.

  18. Can I use resolutions other than 1080p/720p in TAB or SBS mode? I tried but 3d wont kick in. Passive lg tv here.
    I read some posts people talking about running is 1440p.

    ReplyDelete
  19. anyone who gets random freeze after 3d vision fix ? I don't know exactly what is causing but I'm suspecting it's the fix..

    ReplyDelete
  20. the fix works superb but still incorrect some halo around some fire..and after few minutes or hours, the images of weapons, estus and item get affected by convergence. so it was good when I launched, but some few minutes or hours later, all icon push back to screen. (they split into two images) this is so annoying and happens randomly. I have to decrease the convergence in order to merge the two separated images of weapons, etc.

  23. I can't make this game start with 3d, I followed the tutorial of exporting and importing the new profile. I entered Ctrl+alt=F11 But it will not start 3d. Any advice guys? I'm using Win 8.1,Asus strix gtx 980, and Asus rog swift monitor. 375.95 nvidia drivers.Thanks for these amazing fixes for real.

    1. It needs to be running in full screen mode. 3D does not work in borderless fullscreen. Try alt-return, and/or alt-tab. Make sure you can see it working in 3D before installing the fix.
