Kitty Quicky: CtrlAlt Studio 3D Viewer Update Out NOW!

 Remember my post just before my birthday where I recounted how I felt that all my Christmases had come at once because a 3D viewer had been released?

Well if you recall it worked beautifully for me, except I had issues using my Space Navigator.

Luckily for me, the viewer creator, Strachan Offaral, got straight onto the case and his viewer update was released yesterday..And now EVERYTHING works like a TREAT!

Guys and gals, I am 100% 3d immersed and I love it. I cannot navigate SL using keyboard shortcuts to save my life,  I have to use my beloved, slightly knackered Space Navigator, so for this update to have  happened has made me very happy indeed.

If you are considering going 3D then I can only recommend it; it’s added volumes to my Second Life experience and I am so grateful to Strachan for stepping in and creating something that Linden Lab hadn’t.  My virtual experience has become all the better for it, as I am sure you can tell by my enthusiasm.

It’s a pity that I cannot share my experiences here with you by way of a photograph, but trust me, it is THAT good.   Essentially, all you need for 3d is a 120hz monitor and an Nvidea 3D kit.

A couple of peeps have asked me what my set-up is?

Well it’s 18 months old now, and I basically have the bare minimum so I’m sure there are bigger and better sets out there, but mine works perfectly for me (Note: the graphics card was a recent upgrade)

  • Operating System:          Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium, 64-bit (Service Pack 2) (I HATE Vista with a passion, it’s blinking useless, but it was on my PC when purchased)
  • DirectX version:                                11.0
  • Graphics Card:                   GeForce GTX 660 Ti
  • nVidia Driver version:     327.23
  • Direct3D API version:     11
  • Bus:                                       PCI Express x8
  • CPU                                       Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz
  • RAM                                      8.00 GB
  • nVidia 3D Vision 1 kit      http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/buy-wireless-3d-glasses-uk.html
  • Monitor                               Asus VG236H 23-inch 3D 120Hz HDMI LCD Monitor

  1. You prompted me to dig out my old SpaceNavigator and it now has a permanent place on my desk.

    1. YAY! Happy to hear you did that! 🙂
      I’m now zooming around my 3D world like a nutter! (well, more of a nutter than normal, let’s put it that way!)

      Thanks again!
