    PS3 emulator/debugger

    Finally, there is a sizeable catalog of PlayStation 3 games that support 3D, which you can output in SBS using the RPCS3 emulator. Their resolution is quite low but the stereo effect can still be impressive. Note that normally only half SBS is supported, but some games might have a community patch for widescreen resolutions, in which case full SBS might be possible. Make sure to set Configuration -> GPU -> 3D to "Side-by-side" before starting a game. This will tell the game that you are connected to a 3D display, in which case it would have an in-game option to enable stereoscopic 3D. You might also need to set the aspect ratio to 4:3. I can confirm that Prince of Persia Trilogy 3D works nicely. Note that you need a fairly beefy gaming rig to emulate PlayStation 3 well!

  • Depth3D

    Depth Based 3D & Other post-process shaders

    You might have some luck using the SuperDepth3D shader for ReShade to add SBS support to PC games that were not designed for it. It "works" in that the Rokid Max will properly display the side-by-side images, but I did not succeed in getting it to actually produce a stereoscopic effect for the games I play. I'll update this post if I discover something new.

  • JetBrains Dev Survey

    What’s up with the C++ ecosystem in 2023? JetBrains Developer Ecosystem Survey 2023 has given us many interesting insights. The Embedded (37%) and Games (39%) industries are already working with C++20, developers are incorporating static analysis in their CI, and ChatGPT usage among coders is flourishing.

  • dolphin

    Dolphin is a GameCube / Wii emulator, allowing you to play games for these two platforms on PC with improvements.

    Though these consoles did not support stereoscopy originally, the Dolphin emulator can add it and output SBS. My experience was a bit mixed. Your mileage may vary.

  • citra

    A Nintendo 3DS Emulator

    Another wonderful option is to play Nintendo 3DS games with the Citra emulator. They look incredible. I would go so far as to say that if you're a fan of the console then this is the best way to experience its games, even better than on the original hardware. Again use 3840x1200 @ 60 Hz and full SBS. In Emulation -> Configure... -> Graphics -> Stereoscopy set it to "Side by Side". Also increase the renderer internal resolution to as high as your PC can handle (I used "5x Native"). We'll also have to set the display layout for our resolution and aspect ratio. Unfortunately, this has to be done manually. Browse to %APPDATA%\Citra\config and edit qt-config.ini with this in the [display] section:

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
