Wow this is great stuff. Thank you so much. Worked for me to use tridef sbs 3d and this for my smartphone HMD. Tridef sbs works way better in many games than vorpx. And vorpx now only works with oculus directmode, and I only have a DK1.

Having issues to get this to work without crashing on arkham knight and witcher3, both the sweetfx 1.5.1 and reshade versions. Seems arkham knight has issues with older sweetfx/reshade, but not the latest reshade. I tried to get the reshade version shader files to work with the newest reshade, but no go. It spits out errors when trying to run the shader at start.

Are you planning to update the shader to work with the more recent reshade or sweetfx 2.0?

Thx again!

Hi.

**Bump**

Apologies for the noob question.
Do I simply extract the contents of the archive to my Elite Dangerous install folder?

I know I have to edit the SweetFX settings file to enable disable he various shaders :)

Would love to try this with my Homido.

Thanks.

Fortran, can you help me change the whole screen Y position please?
I would like the default centers to have a lower position, so I can avoid looking a bit "up" all the time.

Thank you in advance

Edit: sorted it out just 10 seconds after posted :)

#define LensCenter float2(0.5f,0.4f) :)

Thanks again for the great job

let me rephrase my question it would be possible to modify the shader to hold 2 different scaling values, one that covers the entire available FOV and another that allow to see the entire screen (something like a "theater mode") to see menus and maps with a black border juts to see the entire screen and use an hotkey to recall the second scaling vaule when needed?

Thanks in advance

(edited to give a better understanding of my question)

When I turn on the aspect ratio correction modifier the image gets vertically cropped, is that normal ? Is there a way to have both the correct aspect ratio AND the full screen image ?

I found that if i use a very short IPD (crosseye) i can have both full screen and ratio correction but i use it only if i need to see screen border costantly (when i play alien VS predator to see themotion tracker) for instance that 's why i am tryng to find a way to switch between 2 different scaling factor on "the fly".

Hey Fortran, great work on making this shader, it's exactly what I've been looking for after trying and failing with all kinds of software and setting custom resolutions to get rid of that dang horizontal squeeze. But sadly I can't get this to work either. I'm trying it on Rise of the Tomb Raider, which has native 3D SBS support, but I can't get either your SweetFX or ReShade version to work with it. Maybe because it is DX11/12? I've had bad luck getting SweetFX working any time I've tried it in the past, so I'm wondering if I'm missing something or if it's just incompatible? Thanks.

Have you tried to run rise of tomb rider in dx11 mode?

otherwise you could try to use some program like DXTORY or Fraps and open the realtime stream with a mediaplayer and apply fortran's shader to the mediaplayer window. If you set up everything you will not have a noticeable lag, but it could lower your machine performance.

Hey BlueDeath, thanks, I think ROTTR runs in DX11 by default, I had DX12 turned off during testing. I'm using Moonlight to stream the game to my iPhone, so having the shader applied directly to the game would be the preferable method. I think it might be that the 1.x SweetFX injector just can't get a grip on this newer game.

Yep double stream is not a good idea.
You can still try reshade version of the shader.

I tried the legacy reshade version in dx9 and dx10/11 mode but the screen just stays black once the game is running. I haven't yet figured out how to port it to reshade 2.0, it seems to use different config files.

Howdy, made an account on here just to reply to this thread. If I could get this to work for alien isolation it would be a god send. I have tried seemingly everything to get this to work, but I can't even get sweetFX to activate on my games, even with the configurator or radeonPro. I really just want the lens correction to work. any feedback would be appreciated.

just came to post that I fixed it,...kinda. I couldn't get sweetFX to load at all, no matter the version, could'nt figure it out, so I used the reshade version and it works excellently. also is there a way to use the aspect correction but also increase the height of the display a little? I have a large fov with the FiiT VR headmount and I can see black bars with the aspect ratio fix, and cant see button prompts on the bottom of the screen without it.

First of all great work on the shaders! I was able to get the lens correction working using your Reshade files on Half-Life 2, worked like a charm when running the executable (hl2.exe) directly. Unfortunately when running from Tridef 3D ignition, it seems to completely bypass Reshade. Anyone know how to fix this?

So I figured out how to have both correct aspect ratio and full screen image in Tridef. I used the 'output resolution override' registry fix, posted on the Tridef forums, link: https://www.tridef.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=3325

I set the override output resolutin to 2560x1440 (in the above mentioned registry fix) and the in-game resolution to 1357 x 1527. I can't explain the reasoning behind this at the moment, but I can say that it works. You can also try with the in-game resolution set to 960x1080 and the registry override to 3840x2160 which in my case produced an image of substantially lower quality so I stuck to 2560x1440 / 1357 x 1527.

Hi there!

I am unable to make this shader work with tridefignition. I have followed the readme and installation details without luck.

I am using Windows 10 x64 with Stream Theater.

Thanks for your help!

Hello fortran
I have gta5 with redux graphics mod and reshade come with it installed
I want to use barrel distortion so i copied both yours OCULUSDROIDTRIDEF.h and OCULUSDROIDNATIVE.h in both reshade/sweetfx folder and reshade/sweetfx/sharedshaders (because i dont know where your files should be place)
Then i add oculusdroidtridef 0to1 in (exact text which u posted for reshade,i dont remember now) sweetfx.cfg but nothing works (same with oculusdroidnative 0to1)

Ingame it says effects are already compiled

I tried one more thing i remove all text from lens correction file (reshade/sweetfx/len correction.h/blank (no text) and copy paste your oculusdroidtridef.h text in lenscorrection.h and enable in sweetfx.cfg lens correction 0to1 when i run gta5 it says in yellow line vector something but still no lens distortion or other effects (same with oculusdroidnative.h text in lens correction.h)no effect (lens distortion,vignette) just yellow line but redux graphics mod work doesnt affect anything to it
Im on windows 8.1 using same reshade files that comes with gta 5 redux mod

Please help me .what im doing wrong
Sorry for my bad english

Hi all!,

I've recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S6 + Samsung Gear VR (2016). I've been testing some stuff, and finally got into the combination Tridef + SweetFX + Moonlight to stream PC games to mobile. It works pretty well, but after some times messing with the settings of the file 'OculusDroidNative.h', I can't set the SweetFX to fit with my Gear VR. So I was wondering, did you guys set the SweetFX to work fine with this setup?

Btw, I'm currently testing it with Bioshock 1 (not remastered).

Thanks for all! :)

Is there anyway you could adapt this to work with SweetFX+Reshade v2 or Reshade v3.0? Windows 10 x64 doesn't support the early versions of SweetFX.

This is the answer to all of my problems and I'm sure a lot of other people's issues. I've been successfully able to stream from the PC to my LG G3 in an HMD for a while now. My biggest issue is the limited ability to make adjustments to lens correction. But all of the options in these shades are handy. I just need them to function with Windows 10 x64 and I am just clueless.

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear then.

John

I think i can help you tell me what you would like to achieve. Some "hardcoded" part of the script can be changed. (For instance i use a 4/3 resolution on a 16/10 lcd panel so i had to do some "hacks" i hope Fortran does not take this personally).

How did you get this working with current versions of SweetFX. Well, SweetFX is kinda been absorbed by Reshade v3. I have the same pipeline; Moonlight + Tridef + (hopefully this shader working soon)


I've been trying to get this to work forever.

I just use the "old" reshade version that you can find in this thread. I tweaked some of the parameters but it worked on almost any game.
You could try the new shader for reshade v3 that used depth map made by bluesky defender. For the supported games it eliminates the need for tridef.

Thanks so much. I got it working. I'm so happy. I got the scaling where I like it. I just need a little help lessening the bubble effect.

I don't know the difference between the Distortion Scaling and Warp settings. I'm just using my LG G3 in a Shinecon VR HMD. Is there a way to get the distortion coefficient information from the QR code that Google Cardboard uses?

I've attached a screenshot of my current view outside of the viewer. I scaled the whole view a bit more than my actual amount so I could draw on it.

Thanks for the help so far.

I discovered distortion scaling and aberration values by trial and error. But is not that hard plus i suggest you to use a 4/3 or even a 5/4 resolution.

I changed distortion scaling to 55 bit there is another parameter that zooms che image i keep it at 1.25.

You van stretch che image verically if you want to but you will loose the proportion.

Hey. The 5:4 ratio is awesome idea.
I attached the shader file for Codemasters' DIRT 3. Just use 5:4 ingame ratio (ratio only works in full screen mode).
You might need some distortion/aberration tuning for your personal setup, but it fills my entire FOV and it's awesome.
Cheers

Can you reupload, if you have it, the Reshade pack at the end of the 7th post? I tried the normal Reshade + 3D Depth Map but it seems that doesn't work properly with Tridef, or at least for me

So I don't know if there is some proprietary reason the code for ReShade is never available, but here: I ported and refactored the SweetFX 1.5 version by Fortran for ReShade 3.0. I take only credit for porting, I didn't do any math on this one, and ReShade is super easy to use! Thanks Fortran! No warranty!

The default settings are for a DK2. The file Elite.ini is an example preset for ReShade 3.0 with settings for a Google Pixel phone in Daydream headset. Elite: Dangerous has some issues with SBS aspect ratio, so this scales horribly, but the warping is very good. Adjust the aspect ratio compensation to see if these settings suit your headset more.

If you don't have a Daydream or DK2, I have no ideas what warping values you'll need. Try playing around with the HmdWarpParam if it looks wrong.
