Rayman Redemption

geo-11 fix for Rayman Redemption. It's a fan remake of the first Rayman game. It runs in DirectX 11 and that made 3D a possibility. Fix tested with game version 1.1.4.

  • Stereoized layers of geometry, after analyzing how the "v0.z" depth worked and doing some manual changes to the formula depending on the detected depth.

  • Get the latest version of the game from here and install it.
  • Download this file (contains geo-11 build v0.6.58) and extract its contents in the "Rayman Redemption" folder, where "Rayman Redemption.exe" is. Remember to edit "d3dxdm.ini" to change your "direct_mode" to the output you need. It's sbs by default. For 3D Vision monitors, use fullscreen ingame (better configure the game before installing the fix) and "direct_mode = nvidia_dx11" in "d3dxdm.ini". "direct_mode = nvidia_dx9" blacks out one eye at this moment.
  • Run the game.

Known issues
  • A lot of boss battles aren't as pleasant to look at as normal levels. Their background counts as a distant background, and the left and right borders show smearing when you can see something passing behind them.
  • The need for the F2 hotkey to reverse the background layers at some levels of "The Dream Forest".

  • F1 or XB_RIGHT_THUMB: convergence presets (0, 2, 4, 5, 6). 4 by default, which I recommend.
  • F2 or XB_LEFT_THUMB: switch to reverse the depth of the two furthest background layers. Needed only for the mountains + clouds background in the first few levels of the game (some areas of "The Dream Forest" levels, like the first one), and nowhere else. It isn't even that much of a problem if you never press this.

  • For a pixel perfect presentation (all pixels having the same size), have the desktop at a resolution that is an exact multiple of 480x270 before running the game. For example, for my 2560x1440 monitor, I use a custom resolution of 2400x1350 (without scaling).
