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)

- nVidia Driver version: 327.23
