Fixed remain issues.

Updated! Same link.

- minor diffuse lights issue on guns.


Instructions:
Download this archive. Unpack downloaded archive in to the folder where game .exe file (ACM.exe) located (example : "SteamGames\SteamApps\common\Aliens Colonial Marines\Binaries\Win32").

 If you want to use the fix with any third-party game overlays or other DX9 hook software (or previous version crashes for you) download this version and unpack(overwrite everything if you used previous version of the fix) it  in to the "Binaries\Win32 " folder where "ACM.exe" located (Important: remove d3d9.dll from the game folder if you installed previous version of the fix or fix from above). Launch  "HeliXmodLauncher.exe" and run the game after.

Important: If you want to use hook version(helixmod.dll) with SweetFx(or other mods)  you don't need to rename any files, just put them as is. ProxyLib doesn't work with hook version !


I - key switches(cycle) HUD depth (3 variants).
U - key  switches (cycle) depth presets (3 variants).
O - key  turn film grain effect off/on(default on).

Holding Mouse 2 key activate low separation preset (for good aiming from the gun)

If you want to save your custom convergence settings press "U" and select required preset, set custom separation/depth settings , then press F7 and your settings will be saved in the config file. You can set custom settings for both presets and for gun preset as well (when holding mouse button 2(aiming gun), set custom separation/depth  settings and press F7. Release mouse button 2).

  3. Awesome work as usual !
    I am playing through the coop campaign with this fix and am having a blast.
    I spotted a few issues with shadows from what seem to be pointlights and a couple of projected lights.
    Let me know if you want me to make some 3ds screenshots to point out the exact spots in the game.

    3. I had to replay the chapters as one doesn't seem to be able to save freely (at least within the coop campaign) and the game progress seems to be bound to one's steam account.

      So here are some scenes with issues:

      Mission 5: The Raven
      http://photos.3dvisionlive.com/oneofthe8devilz/image/511cd3af5ec346ba47000030/
      http://photos.3dvisionlive.com/oneofthe8devilz/image/511cd3eb5ec346f65600001e/

      Mission 3: Sulaco Falls

      http://photos.3dvisionlive.com/oneofthe8devilz/image/511cd4505ec3469c4b000024/

      And on a side note, I noticed that the UDK devkit suffers from similiar issues in 3d Vision and I wondered if you were willing to create a fix for the UDK too, since a lot of people are creating custom content/games with it (including me) and it would be wonderful to have a 3d Vision fix for it. So if you would want to give it a shot I could provide a sample scene with all kinds of different lighting and shadowing to cover as many situations as possible...

      Here is a scene displaying some of the shadow issues I am experiencing with the default UDK:
      http://photos.3dvisionlive.com/oneofthe8devilz/image/50b943daa3e0678e3f000005/

      ========
      *Update*
      ========

      Now that I am a couple of Chapters further into the story here are some more I ran into

      Mission 5: The Raven
      http://photos.3dvisionlive.com/oneofthe8devilz/image/511d304d5ec346cb08000007/
      http://photos.3dvisionlive.com/oneofthe8devilz/image/511d30fb5ec346c70800000b/

      And it seems that all outdoors areas so far have issues too...

      Mission 6: For Bella

  7. To see that there is a fix for Colonial Mariens and no one for Aliens vs. Predator 3 (2010 release) makes me almost cry. Or maybe is there something for AvP 3 ? I would love to see a fix for AvP 3 and my badly hurting eyes would be very thankful.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Might be because this game is based on unreal engine 3, unless I'm mistaken, whereas AVP3 was not.

      Thank you for providing this fix helix, I thought you'd look over this game since everyone's been calling it a dud. Thank you for keeping 3d vision alive!

    2. I suppose it's somewhere near to the end of the game ?
      I don't have time to play the game now.
      So I can fix it only if someone give me a save game or problematic pixel shader.

    3. Never mind, should be fixed in current version.
      Re-download new version.

  11. HeliX, is there a chance to see a fix for Aliens vs. Predator 3 ?

    ReplyDelete
  12. HeliX,
    just played as an alien/xenomorph in multiplayer and the yellow "alienvision tint" completely obscures the view in stereo 3d and one can't see anything... You can simply reproduce it by starting a multiplayer game as an alien/xenomorph... A fix for that would be great...

  16. Man I need to donate to you Helix! You save so many games from being deleted from my PC. Thanks a buch and I will donate ASAP!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hey Helix, If we gift you a Sonic Transformed to your Steam account, could you please take a look at it? This game will be fantastic in 3D, if there's a way of fixing it. It has the greatest depth sensation I've ever seen, besides, it's graphics are awesome and has great playability. I come here everyday to see if there's this fix, and also I keep looking at 3dvision live everyday, but no success. You are the one! PLease, think about it! Thanks, Caio from Brazil.

    2. Gifting a game means something like per-payment, which i can't accept.
      It can be that game is not fixable and what we will do then ?
      I already have a payed work and don't want turn this into another one.
      Only thing I can consider in future(not now) is donation, but only for already created fixes.

    4. Could this be because of Windows 8? I'm sure I've heard that Windows 8 only allows 1 dll injection at once. I can't record a game with FRAPS if it has SweetFX on it because of this. I really hope theres a way to do this as I LOVE this game.

    1. Open DX9SETTINGS.INI

      CHANGE

      Key = [Whatever "ASCII" key you want]

    2. I also use Mouse 2 for jumping but aim with Mouse 4. After a bit of experimentation I found that 503 works for Mouse 4 so I assume 500-504 are Mouse 1-5 respectively, in case anyone else wants to use a different mouse button rather than one of the keys in the gif above.

  27. Thanks so much for these fixes m8 - they've completely transformed my enjoyment of the game.

    Would there be any chance of also adjusting the depth of the various red dot, holo dot and zoom scope crosshairs to either (ideally) the depth of the object being aimed at or else to infinity (to enable us to use higher convergence settings when holding mouse 2), and to change the depth of the text labels above friendlies to the same depth as the character being labelled?
    Many thanks,

    3. A good way to get rid of any 2D HUD elements is to add a "togglehud" bind command to the "PecanInput.ini" file located at "C:\Users\%USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\Aliens Colonial Marines\PecanGame\Config".

      Search for the line "bUseLogarithmicAimScaling=true" and place the following line below it:
      Bindings=(Name="P",Command="togglehud")

      You can replace the letter "P" with a key of your choice. Since it is togglable you can make the HUD appear and disappear by pressing the button on demand (for instance if you need to know the location of other players or mission objectives

  32. Hey guys,

    take care, don t install the new patch as it destroys the helix patch. I don t know how but it makes the new game unplayable for us. Maybe it is because of the film grain they included, I don t know...
    @ Helix
    I really love your work and constantly consult first your list before buying a game... do you know what to now? I am aware that you maybe won t have the game installed anymore. But if you'd have, maybe you can take a look and provide us with your expertise. I am honestly a bit sad now, that the patch (which came unforeseeable) made everything worse.

    Thanks a lot.
    Best regards,

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yeah, the latest patch absolutely crushes the Helix fix which sucks major balls as it was my favourite FPS setup with regards to depth and such. It was perfect. Though, I do like the changes that are in the patch, the game looks better and feels harder (I was struggling on the hangar defence in the first level on soldier difficulty when I could breeze it solo on Ultimate Badass.

    @Helix
    I will forever eternally grateful if you could come back to this game and work that weird and wonderful magic you have such a nack for. Please. Let me slip away into a world where I can simply forget the games faults and just enjoy it as I used to.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yep, I can confirm that the helix mod doesnt work with the latest patch released. I really wanted to try 3d vision when Aliens was fixed up graphically with official patches, I should have tried it before the patch :/

  52. Should set steam to not auto update if you like it and probably make a copy to a different drive.

    Can someone right click the ACM.exe (I believe) and tell me a version number and zip their .exe if its not a hassle. Not sure its patching method but may get lucky.

    1. Well what stinks is there are going to be at least 3 more DLC and each one will most likely come with a Patch. I bought the Season Pass on 2 Machines. My Son and I play. So it's a bummer that 3d Support will be dropped so quickly. But I do understand that it is your free time that you are using to do these mods. That you so much for what you have already all done.

  54. New patch 1.2.0 is out adding a lot of new graphical improvements (including SSAO...)

    I guess it's pointless to beg Helix for another fix update, which is truly a shame since with the fixes ACM is definitely one of the most impressive Stereo 3d games out there...

  56. @AvMAN, indeed ! I didn't even bother trying the new version with the latest fix but so far no bugs noticed... :)

  57. Sadly its not true there is some bugged shaders on objects now. Enough to prevent me from playing in 3d.

    Hoping for a fix.

  58. I must say to me after many hours of 3d Vision gameplay, ACM with the current 1.2.0 Update and this 3d fix is definitely one of the best if not the best 3D Vision experience currently available supporting cooperative gameplay...

    Another big thanks to Helix for putting all the effort into it (we actually incredibly lucked out that the 1.2.0 update didn't break the 3d fix ;) )

  59. Dear Helix,
    My Name is Simon and I have played many of your 3d patched games like Far Cry 3 and Dead Space 3!
    You did a very good job of any of them :D.
    Last week I´ve finished Aliens:CM and after the patch 1.2 and your 3d mod it was very great to play!
    I love the Alien genre and so I´ve searched for other good Alien games but I didn´t find anything.
    Then I had seen Aliens vs Predator and found it great :D.I know you have to do a lot of things but I would liked it very much if you can fix this game so me and other Alien fans can enjoy your awesome 3d once more!

    Simon

  60. Work great, except the mission 4 in gas rooms from DLC Stasis Interrupted.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yes, the parts in "DLC Stasis Interrupted" where the gas-mask is used it seems like the scene separates in 4 instead of the usual 2 stereo images... Other than that, the fix remains compatible with the last and probably final update/dlc for ACM :)

  62. Is there any chance of a helix mod for the MMORPG "Rift"? I would love to play this gem in 3D It dose'nt detect sweetfx as a hack and that uses d3d9.dll system.

  63. Thank you Helix! Your work is much appreciated.

  64. Does this mod still work? Just tried it and I get a lot of double images for objects. No matter how I adjust the convergence I can't get rid of it.

    1. It worked as of a few months ago seems to be no updates so I'd assume so.

      TBH, I think your running into display ghosting. Depending on age of display/how good it handles 3D it can be a lot/little. The game is very dark so when something is bright like a light/whatever your more likely to run into it.
      see picture here..

      Ways to reduce ghosting is to play with contrast/brightness of your display/in-game.

      Reinstall fix to..
      Aliens Colonial Marines\Binaries\Win32\
      layout should be..
      Aliens Colonial Marines\Binaries\Win32\shaderoverride\
      Aliens Colonial Marines\Binaries\Win32\psscipt
      Aliens Colonial Marines\Binaries\Win32\d3d9.dll
      Aliens Colonial Marines\Binaries\Win32\dx9settings.ini

    2. If you press "I" and hud depth changes, its properly installed.

    3. If you want to show me a picture so I can tell you if its display ghosting/whatever
      ALT-F1 in game takes Screenshot.
      It goes into -> C:\Users\eqz\Documents\NVStereoscopic3D.IMG

      Upload to wherever preferably 3dvisionlive.com

    4. It probably is display ghosting. I have an Asus VG278HE that I bought last month. Hud depth changes work so the mod does work. I try to max out brightness in my monitor when I game in 3d to keep things from becoming too dark. That might be what is causing it, it usually happens against white backgrounds or around bright lights.

    5. Yea sounds like it, best results are to lower contrast. TBH, I can't stand ghosting and went with a DLP projector because of this reason [Trade off of 720p]

      TBH, it shouldn't be too bad. Might have to settle with some contrast changes, lower depth setting.
      There are games where if I have people talk about same issue I'd assume display ghosting [doom 3/ dead space] and this kind of fits into same category so I wouldnt worry too much until you run into it some more.

  66. Holding Xbox 360 Controller left trigger doesn't activate low separation preset (for good aiming from the gun) like it does when holding mouse button 2. How can I fix this?

    2. The game natively supports the Xbox 360 controller. But the R/L images when looking down the gun sight are not aligned when using the Xbox controller LB. They are aligned however, when using the right mouse button.

    3. Download xpadder or joy2key.

      Bind right mouse to left trigger. Helixmod doesnt have controller support but that will work.

    4. Thanks! I'm using the trial version of Joy2Key. I mapped the Left Trigger to Mouse Button 2 and it works perfect now.
