How to make make things working:

PLEASE ENSURE you are using a 3D-Vision-SUITIBLE Driver SetupTo proove or achieve, I suggest reading + using this:

1. INITIAL-Setup (only needed once):

  • INSTALL the fix with 3DFM
  • or download it from below and EXTRACT the archives files to the game install folder: ...\TSCGame\Binaries\Win64
  • START "00_UE4-UniversalFix-2_Config.cmd" located in  ...\TSCGame\Binaries\Win64
  • READ/FOLLOW all the things in the tool
  • ONCE if you have entered the Config-Tool Quick-Start Menu, JUST close it
  • Please read/follow the section below ("Starting the game and Ingame Setup")

2. Starting the Game and Ingame-Setup:

- START the game via 3DFM, or via launcher/shortcut/game-executable

    • you may need to wait up to 15 min if you run the game for the first time!
    • The game may have HUGE INPUT LAGS the first time and while loading (NEW) areas (because of shader caching) ....its getting better the more you play.

    - Set FULLSCREEN in the game options.

      • If 3D will not work, try ALT+ENTER and ALT+ENTER again, or STRG+T
      • If 3D still not work, read the FAQs from the link below

      - USE HIGHEST available Anti-Aliasing settings

        • The fix sets AA and AO as good as suitible for 3D-Vision.
        • Any lower AA settings MAY can make your image grissly, but its up to you!

        - Additional In-Game Settings:

          • nothing special, everything is up to you!

          3. Key Assignments in the Game:

          - All key-options are shown in the On-Screen-Display in game
          - PLEASE RAD THIS for get an idea how AUTO-DEPTH-HUD works and can be made game-individually cool: Adaptation option for the automatic depth of the HUD / UI
          • F2                                        On-Screen-Help (OFF/ON)
          • NUMPAD -                         toggle low convergence (ON/OFF)
          • RBUTTON (Mouse)           lowers convergence for aiming (on key-hold) - by 0% (use 00_UE4-UniversalFix-2_Config.cmd for change)
          • XB_LEFT_TRIGGER      lowers convergence for aiming (on key-hold) - by 0% (use 00_UE4-UniversalFix-2_Config.cmd for change)

          4. Problems? Read FAQ here:

          UNREAL Engine 4 – Universal Fix 2

          - Still have problems??
            • PLEASE provide detailed information about the ERROR you got, as well as information about your hard (GPU) and software (driver/windows version) setup
            • PLEASE provide a save-game and an instrcution to see your problem there to / Discord or @ a MTBS thread

            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)
