The Sinking City - 3D-Vision Fix - Losti - V2.00
- To improve this game, simply use the UNIVERSAL Fix 2

4.  Introduction to get it working

- copy archive files to ...GAMEDIRECTORY\TSCGame\Binaries\Win64
  • OPTIONAL: copy "Scalability.ini" from the archive to XXX:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\XXXXXXX\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\
    (this can disable motion blur and lowers the AA settings)
  • OPTIONAL: You can try to solve motion sickness: there is an Engine_additions.txt in the archive, add its content to the end of XXX:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\XXXXXXX\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Engine.ini
  • set Scalability.ini and Engine.ini as write protected if you have copied over or changed it!!!

4.3  Ingame Settings

- ONLY USE AA @ low!!! Otherwhise you run into motion sickness!!
- rest is up to you, if you cant live with some minor wrong effects, lower material and/or visual effect quallity!

5.  Key Settings

5.1  Key Settings (Keyboard + Mouse Gameplay)

-  toggles LOW-DEPTH-PRESET for situations the depth is too high (press to enable, press again to disable and revert to your choosen depth or standard depth from the fix)

-  toggles LOW-ISSUE-PRESET for depth, means using this will make the remaining issues nearly gone, using 40 % depth and higher convergence. Its up to you to use if remaining issues bother you!!!
==> Suggested for under water !!!
==> Not sure if you need this after update to V 2.0 but i left it in case you need it!

-  disable/enable Fog


-  Hud-Depth


-  Depth Presets

5.2  Key Settings (Controller Gameplay)

-  toggles LOW-DEPTH-PRESET for situations the depth is too high (press to enable, press again to disable and revert to your choosen depth or standard depth from the fix)


THANK you DSS for being on this earth :-)
THANK you DHR for UE4 universal fix!!
- THANK you masterotaku for being on this earth :-)
- Big thanks to Bo3bDarkStarSword, Flugan and all others involved in creating 3DMigoto; an amazing wrapper that allows us to fix our favorite DX11 games in 3D Vision!
NVIDIA for creating 3D-Vision as a tech!


  1. This is great! I'm just waiting for this fix, didn't expect it comes so soon. Really thanks!

  2. Fix is updated adressing the reported shadow issue in dialoges. Also made some more shadow/light fixing that remains but was minor..

    Switched to ZIP file to work with 3DFM. (You do not need to redownload if you have the prev. version working). I have only changed the package archive type.

  3. Hey Losti, one question: There are some games like Metro Exudus, it took over 200h to make a fix. And there are games like draugen. How simple was it, to fix draugen? Or is it important how long the game is? I have not really 200 h of time to fix a 50h game like Metro, but games like draugen oder Dloobstraind... To support the Community by fixing "small" games is the idea I have.

  4. installed Geforce: 425.31
    the game does not turn on 3d mode
    in the rest of the games the health mode is turned on

    1. Its something related to your system. Not to the fix. Make a clean installation of the GeForce driver. Use DDU to clean up old driver. Turn on 3D in NV control panel.

    2. it's all done
      i play anaglyph 3d
      all other games start with 3d and this one does not start

    3. Make sure that the game is running in full screen exclusive mode. Full screen borderless will not work.

    4. worked;)
      awesome 3d
      thanks for the advice
      now the game starts in 3d

  5. I suggest disabling DOF and Film Grain, also (see for more information)
