    ASUS v8200 & VR-glasses

    Why do I have so much trouble getting the 3D glasses to work properly???

    When I i.e. test them in VR Picture Viewer, the glasses flash all the time, and the 3D pictures provided are not in 3D at all...

    I have a 75Hz monitor, and I don't know if it has something to do with my refresh rates, because i'm very confused regarding those...: What refresh rate should I set in the ASUS Task Bar, in the Advanced menu (OpenGL & Direct3D) and finally in VR Picture Viewer???

    I'm a little afraid to change the refresh rates all the time, because I've heard, that too high rates could damage my monitor?!?!

    I really hope you can assist me, because I think the manual is VERY poor, when describing the VR-glasses and how to make them work in games...

    I have the ASUS V6800 Deluxe and I find the VR glasses crap

    It seems to depend entirly on you monitor... it needs to handle at least 100Hz interlaced mode (that is 50Hz per lens)

    As for the picture viewer you need to set your display to 800x600 and there is an option to turn the 3D-VR on in the menus (I betting its the same program as my V6800)

    For games you need to configure the glasses via the taskbar ASUS icon and the Advanced option (D3D-VR, OpenGL-VR)

    For me and my monitor the same game never seems to work twice in a row.

    Frankly the glasses fit nobody and just suck, text displays incorrectly and most of the time you still get 2 images...and you are right the manuals are translated into english badly

    Hope this helps

    or you could ditch the Asus stereo drivers and try the ones supplied at NVidia.They also have a very good online instruction manual you can use.Look here:

    I've just taken a quick look at the NVIDIA online manual for their 3D driver, and it looks VERY promising...

    That manual is about 100 times better than the VR section in the ASUS manual....!!

    That driver is definitely one I'm going to try when i get home..!! Does this driver (or the Detonator 3 driver) replace one or more of my ASUS drivers, or will these drivers just supplement my existing drivers??

    These glasses split the refresh rate so you really need above 120hz vertical refresh to even start to appreciate them. My monitor will do 160hz at 1024x768 but the recommended max at that res is 140hz. using either of these there is no obvious flicker, but the image quality still leaves a lot to be desired with ghosting and shadows. They are a fun gimmick but not a real hardcore gaming device IMO. I played with them for a bit had some fun and now they are in the box

    AS far as i know of you will need to get the 12.41 drivers from the NVidia site as well.I tried using both the Asus drivers for the card,and those for the glasses and it didnt work for some reason
