  1. Just finished the first episode with this patch (second playthrough), it is really fantastic in 3D. Thanks so much!

  2. Thanks, but 3D does not seem to work (at least not in fullscreen). This is probably because the game starts by default in 1024*768 (before going to 720p, as I set it in the menu), which is not a supported resolution for NVIDIA 3DTV Play.
    Any idea how to fix this? Isn't there an *.ini file or something in which I can force another default startup res? Looking forward to play this gem in perfect Helixmod 3D!
    (Btw, had the same problem in The Walking Dead S02, which made me buy additional software, Tridef)

    1. Hi. I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you saying that the game starts in 1024x768 and you can't change the resolution to 720p? I'm currently using 3DTV Play and when the game starts in 1024x768, I'm able to change the resolution in the options menu to 720p. Once the resolution is on 720p, 3D enables fine for me.

  3. Hi, thanks for the quick reply! I am able to change the resolution to 720p. And I don't have to change the res every time either; it's just that the game always starts in 1024*768 (for a couple of seconds), before changing automatically to 720p.
    It's just a theory, but I assume the NVIDIA 3D software only 'analyses' the startup resolution, and 'concludes' that the res is not supported. I'm confident about this theory, because when i set the desktop resolution in 720p, and start the game in windowed mode, 3D is working (most of the time, and not perfectly). Strange, however, is that when using the shortcut to change the window into fullscreen, 3D is disabled again. But I still think it could help to change the default startupres; if I just knew how..

  4. Nvidia: “Please check with the game developers if there is any setting which can be changed so that the game would start in the supported resolution.”

    Telltale: “Unfortunately we do not have a viable wokaround to this currently. I will pass your feedback to the team however.”

    I guess nothing is going to happen :/
