Now to the game:
Ensure no external displays are active (use Win+P)
Press ESC to get to its control panel.
Click Display, "Fullscreen" and "Side by side".
Click "Play Demo".
I get the same picture in the left and right halves of my display.
Now comes the bit I battle(d) with: using your right fore-finger, press the
"3D" button above your keyboard (2 rows above the "Backspace" key).
SuperD Face Tracking should start automatically, and the blue light beside the webcam
lights up. (May take a couple of seconds.)
Unfortunately, Polynomial has thus lost the focus and is minimized.
Does anybody know why? Or how to prevent that happening?
Use Alt-Tab to return to Polynomial. It should reappear in full-screen mode.
If you've still got the 2 similar views next to each other, prod the 3D key again. Wait a few seconds.
(Sometimes I have to repeat these last 2 steps, but haven't found out under which circumstances.)
Generally, I can lay back at this point and congratulate myself on buying such a seriously cool PC.
That's not actually true.
Instead I gawp open-mouthed at the utterly brilliant stereoscopic 3d graphics!!!!
I hope this helps other newbies and apologize to any oldbies who were bored by my enthusiastic rantings.
please read my posts more carefully before "responding". I think I made it perfectly clear that I DIDget it running autostereoscopically. Or what was unclear about that in my text?
I asked this because the message was posted some days ago and there was no feedback from anyone… I thought maybe you have solved this already without posting an feedback… sorry if you have misunderstood this…
Why would you think that I haven't done that? I have obviously done it more thoroughly than you, so why are you recommending me to do anything?
Maybe because you did not mention in the post above, that you tried to use the glasses free 3D mode running other games (no flash games )... and because there is a notice in the Toshiba document (link you posted in your posting) that not all games might be supported…
New user of the F750 here. I've been going through the usual nonsense to get 3D fully working. Amazing lack of information from Toshiba themselves. Despite this, I have now got it working.
I bought the machine mainly for editing of 3D video. By that I don't mean I expect my editing software to work in 3D, but I can edit the side-by-side footage (my camera's natural format), and quickly export to MP4 to check it out in 3D.
But that is by-the-by. Of course, I had to see what it was like for 3D games. It has been several years since I did any serious computer gaming, so I was looking for a free experience, at least at first, rather than spend money on games and not play them.
I have been playing with the Steam game delivery system, and found they had a number of free demos and even full games there. I've only got as far as trying one or two:
Hard Reset (Demo). Initially had problems with this, as the 3D was misaligned. Discovered how to tweak the convergence using CTRL-F5 and CTRL-F6. Absolute blast, and good 3D effects.
Lord of the Rings Online and Dragons and Dungeons Online. Both have full content available for free, but then try to sell you further stuff, which you can ignore. The problem I encountered with both of this is this:
1) They first start in 1280 x 1024 mode, and the computer tells you that 3D is not supported in this resolution, and to switch to 1920 x 1080. In 2D, the games look good, though.
2) Both games can be switched to 1920 x 1080 by going to options, and then the 3D graphics are excellent. However:
3) At this resolution all of the dialog and control boxes are far too small (and "hazed" by the 3D effect) to be legible.
I've had a go at changing the UI sizes in the game options, but the dialogs remain largely illegible in 3D mode. What I would prefer is a way to have the laptop display 3D in a 1280 x 1024 mode, but I am not sure that is possible.
Still, there are lots of other games there on Steam, many of them 3D, so take a look - it's a cheap way to try out 3D gaming.
