Skyrim SRLE in 3D

Recommended Posts

My son bought on EVGA GTX 980 4GB Overclocked and is quite pleased with it. He is obsessed with having max settings and frame rates of 60 fps on every game, but he doesn't play Skyrim. I got his EVGA GTX 770 4 GB FTW to replace my EVGA GTX 680 4 GB FTW. I was wondering if anyone played Skyrim in 3D? I am considering buying an ASUS VG278HE Black 27" monitor along with an NVIDIA NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Wireless Glasses Kit. Is it worth the experience? This would be for SRLE?  I currently play on a crappy Sceptre TV.

You would most likely not be able to get the required framerate required for a good 3d experience with SRLE since it does add quite a few mods that increase both draw distances, as well as the amount of stuff rendered. At least not on just one of those cards. If an ENB is used then it is even more unlikely to be possible.

I currently use the SRLE suggested Vividian ENB. What card would make it possible, if any? Cost is not necessarily a concern. Thanks, any help is appreciated.

We have had a few other users dabble with the 3d, perhaps that will chip in with some hands on experience. Mine is mostly just based on what you could find by searching sadly. 

 

However at 1080p only then it should be possible to get enough horse power to pull it off somewhat.. worst case you have to lower some settings, or remove a mod or two.

Thanks for your input. I currently run at 1080p and the monitor that I linked to only does 1080p, but with 144 Hz refresh. The other monitor I am considering is an Acer XB270H Abprz Black 27", it is more expensive, but also run at 144 Hz at 1080p but with nvidia G-sync.

I dabbled with 3d first gen in Skyrim and was not impressed. The shadows do not look right and other anomalies. There were some ini tweaks to do, but I don’t remember them. There was a Fix going around and there is one based on it on the Nexus called 3D Vision Complete Compatibility Project. The only thing is that it uses a d3d9.dll which is not compatible with ENB.

 

I just upgraded to the Acer XB270H Abprz gsync monitor and I like it. Gsync 144hz makes a difference in games I have tried with the exception of Skyrim. You have to limit the FPS or you will suffer the physics bug, but it is still an improvement when you have the game tuned right.

 

Just a note here, if 3d vision is enabled gsync gets disabled.

Thanks for the info.  I have been looking around and I came to the same conclusion, Skyrim and 3D do not mix. Still looking for a monitor and the Acer is still in the mix.  Any other suggestions for a monitor are welcome. Much be a least 27" or greater.

I like my 27in acer gsync and when it is next to my 24in monitors it is hard to imagine that I liked playing on them. They are all still 1080, but the size of the 27 makes everything clearer and more readable. There is also a noticeable increase in brightness over my other monitors. I even had to turn it down some to get it to a comfortable level, whereas I was maxing out the other monitors brightness. Now I know why the dungeons in Skyrim dark. I spent quite a lot of time trying mods to get the dungeons lighter, now I might have to try to darken them again.

After much research, I have decided on this monitor. Thanks for your advice.

You have piqued my interest in Nvidia 3D again, so i have broken out the old hardware and will give this another try. I may have just been doing it wrong.

I received my Acer XB270H monitor today. So far I am pleased. No dead pixels.  I still need to buy an NVIDIA 3D Vision kit. Currently newegg is out of stuck and they seem the cheapest.

After I enabled my 3d vision stuff I started to suffer BSOD in windows. I have spent the last week trying to get my OS installed and at every turn something else went wrong. Frustrating to say the least. I finally found an old 8.1 image that I restored and am in the process of installing my software now. Before the meltdown I discovered some interesting things about 3d that I was doing wrong before.

I just ordered a nvidia 3d vision 2 kit today. Hopefully, I won't encounter all those issues. I run windows 7 professional.

It is not so much a problem with the drivers as I was having various issues with Windows anyways. I was getting desktop lockups and resets on an increasing basis. It just got to the point when I enabled the 3d that it put things over the edge. it was most likely a comparability issue between programs that I had installed. I like my gadgets.

 

I now have the 3d working without issues so far. Tried Skyrim and the 3d transforms the game considerably. I just have to work out the best combination of settings that will not make me go cross-eyed.

Unless bad weather hampers things (currently under winter weather warning expecting 5+ inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday), I am expecting to receive the 3d vision 2 kit, Tuesday. Did you have to make compromises with mods and ENB?

      Hey gang, just finishing up a pretty big mod and would love to have some testers using the SRLE and SRLE Extended setups.  This mod is quite beefy, encompassing my other mods and a year of learning.  You'll need a strong graphics card and processor to make it run well, especially with ENB.  I know there are some unfinished things, like better worldspace setup, better/more NPCs, small quest or 2 to get the home, get disenchant font working, etc. etc.  Notice the many shadowcasting and timed lighting, new music, tons of unique assets, kind of a theme, but that's WIP as well...
       
      Should be comparable with any mod, just make sure to load the ESP and the assets after (below) any of my other mods to be safe.  You will find the boat to Dragonwind Isle on the Solitude Docks...there's also a map marker there to fast travel to the boat.
       
      Please try to break it, find bugs, suggest any viable improvements, and let me know you're thoughts.
       
      Thx!!
