    Blimey, didn't expect this...

    Twilight princess in 3D

    Anyone got the necessary hardware to try it out?
  • Deleted user 9 February 2010 19:29:12
    Seems you can use it with bog standard paper 3D glasses, which I also don't have :(

    Hehe, I'll see if I can find some glasses tomorrow and give it a whirl at work.

    It looks quite good through the glasses, not sure how long i could play like that for though.

    Are you just looking at the screenshot or playing the game in 3D?

    I have glasses because they were included in TrackMania United Forever (I think).

    However, at least with TrackMania the effect really doesn't work all that well. Moving your head completely ruins the effect and you constantly have to re-adjust the settings so that the stereo separation is set correctly according to your distance to the monitor.

    More of a gimmick that is fun for a few minutes.

    Shame the plugin isn't out for n64 emulators, I'd love to try Sin & Punishment or F-Zero in 3D.

    Presumably the emulators all output to OpenGL or D3D to render and so we've been able to view them in 3D since day one (or 10 years ago, whichever comes later). I suspect the blocky low poly nature of N64 graphics would work rather well with 3D, building almost a papercraft/lego world to look into (Homeworld definitely got a lot out of 3D due to the quite basic nature of the 3D models). That said, I can't say I ever personally enjoyed an emulated game in 3D so maybe there is something funky that makes them hard to enable 3D mode with.

    Why is it that everytime Iwata says 'We don't need HD/3D/etc...', it appears on Dolphin the week afterwards?

    This emulator needs more love. Super Mario Sunshine playing perfectly (albeit slightly -too fast-) at 1680x1050 with 8xAA? Hello.

    Pity about the shite proprietary Gamecube disc format. Looks like I'll be adding to the piracy statistics if I want to try this emulator out.
  • Deleted user 27 February 2010 17:54:39
    Which is?

    Considering you can't buy the games new anymore, I wouldn't have thought it's anything to morally worry about if you already own the titles.

    Erm, GC discs fit in nearly all DVD drives.
  • Deleted user 27 February 2010 18:13:09
    Shame the framerate limiting is completely off in this. For Mario Sunshine I have to manually force it to 25, but the FMV is 50 so that runs at half speed. If I turn off a couple of options it gets videos playing at the correct speed but the game slightly too slow (about 20fps).

    Ah well, slow unskippable videos it is.

    Try an old build, SMS runs fine on 42xxxx

    Yes. Now try accessing the information on that disc.

    It's in a proprietary format unreadable to a Mac or PC. Much like Dreamcast discs.

    Can't be read, though.

    Use the ripping software on the forums.

    Ah, cheers Crispy, working fine now. Seems the framerate limiter is broken on the latest stable version.
  • Deleted user 27 February 2010 18:29:18
    Woooo

    This is by far the easiest emulator I've ever used. Aside from some minor tweaking for framerate, everything works out of the box, even the control pads.

    Are you talking about software that does a straight rip or via a Gamecube Broadband Adapter and a copy of PSO which still uses a Gamecube to read the disc?
