I'm trying to run tridef DDD on my pc for the first time but i have same troubles.
My system is composed like this:
-AMD HD5870 with Viewsonic V3d241wm via duallink as primary monitor (edited, got rid of the hd6970)
-Nvidia GTS450 connected to a standard 1600x1200 monitor as secondary display, disabling those devices doesn't solve the problem.
-OS: i tested only win7 32bit; i have win7 and winxp, both in x86 and x64 however i well know that
it's better to not use winxp in this environment so i'll focus only on windows 7.
So i tried to install the tridef package for viewsonic using amd drivers 10.10e, 11.4 early preview
and 11.5b but in both cases the ignition driver tell "Please Connect to a 3D Compatible Display"
and ask to reboot (but rebooting doesn't change nothing).
Then i tried the main package: i'm using generic 120hz with 13 day of trial and
i found it's working well with many games (best results are without virtual 3d and
with manual focus) except that in many games i have random swap of the left eye with
the right eye; swap eye time approximately happen from 1 time per seconds to one time every same minutest depending on the game.
So i'm backing again to the version for the viewsonic, no matter how much i try, it always say that there is no capable 3d device connected; i installed the driver from viewsonic and the hardware panel show the correct nome of the monitor, i tried 10.10e 11.4preview 11.5b 11.9 confirming every time what's the installed core driver, but i had no success.
For referencee, using this configuration work also with iz3d in shutter mode but the
game compatibility it's pretty bad with older games; or use of various amd drivers version result in
better comaptibility with different issues, mainly unexplainable fps fps down,
11.4prev , 11.5b 11.9 less compatibility but games work well in 3d, 10.10e untested with hd5870
all other working driver more compatibility but issues when s3d is enabled; i don't have much
experience with tridef since i just came here but the test with generic 120hz suggest that i'm really
close to a good choice.
I own an hd5870 but i loan an hd6970 at work for testing, i can keep it for enough time if required: update: put back my hd5870 and tried 10.10e, same result.
To switch from a driver to another i first uninstall it, in safe mode clean with driver sweeper, in safe mode manually clean leftovers on filesystem and registry including those files that are protected by permissions; with this i can change the driver up and back without limits.
I hope on a solutions; at the monent i have 14 days of trial left for generic 120hz (after changing vga the count restarted)
edit: i'm checking the forum every day for any response/hint, message edited on Oct-06
On 05-oct i got rid of the hd6970 because has a bad power management and the fan is loud even at low rpm (faulty design?), it was the black one with the big silver screw, i'll try the red version of the same brand next time i got one.
