What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have a known driver incompatibility that will keep us in Early Access as long as it is not resolved.

Known incompatibilities:

  • AMD or Intel GPUs are not supported. We require Nvidia 3D Vision.
  • NVidia drivers 456.38 or greater are not currently supported. NVidia broke DX11 3D Vision in these drivers. We are investigating, but may not be able to resolve this problem.
  • RTX 3080, 3090, or 3070 require newer drivers and are thus not currently supported.
  • No DX12 games are currently working in 3D.
  • Gaming laptops require an external monitor.


Try our Free Demo to get a quick look at how it works and looks. The Demo will display a stereoscopic slideshow on the giant screen. You cannot play games in the Demo, but the adjustable screen and environment is fully functional. Free, 100M download, worth your 5 minutes.

NVidia 3D Vision is required for HelixMods to generate the stereoscopic images. Since NVidia 3D Vision is now a legacy product, as time goes by it may get harder to keep working. We want to get this out as soon as possible, so as many people as possible can enjoy the wonders of HelixMods. Currently you can use any NVidia Driver.

Keep in mind that HelixVision is fundamentally modding. If you enjoy PC gaming because of the ability to modify the experience far past what the game devs ever see- you will enjoy HelixVision.

HelixVision is currently fully functional at a beta level of quality. There is a limited set of compatible games, but for the ones that work, the experience is of good quality and you can play full games.

This is modding. You should enjoy tweaking your games for maximum effect. If you don't enjoy modding, and prefer a console experience, HelixVision is not for you.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least for six months, maybe longer. We will remain in Early Access until we can resolve the incompatibility with drivers 456.38 and greater.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“At Early Access, we currently support about 150 games. User feedback will be key in deciding which of the 900 HelixMod games to bring to HelixVision.

We expect to improve the UI, including easier ways to adjust the 3D separation and convergence.

Future versions are expected to support Steam WorkShop, which will allow you to build and share custom VR environments.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently running well with a limited set of supported HelixMod games. Our forum link will give you a list of Supported Games that will always be up to date. Performance is good, ease of use is good, quality of the image is good.

Some of the supported games will hang on exit, but we do not consider that a disqualifying bug. This is modding. You can expect an occasional crash or hang. You can also expect some VR related problems, like VR occasionally needing to be restarted in order to completely work. There are likely glitches in our working list of games, that require manual workarounds.

Is HelixVision for you?

You should enjoy modding, which is pretty much the point of using a PC and not a console. You can expect to run into glitches and problems. Although we try hard to simplify the experience and make it robust, HelixVision is not and never will be a console experience. Modding is terrific and fun, and you get to experience things no one else sees, but naturally it doesn't always work smoothly.

Known incompatibilities:

  • AMD or Intel GPUs are not supported. We require Nvidia 3D Vision.
  • NVidia drivers 456.38 or greater. NVidia broke 3D Vision in these drivers. We are investigating, but may not be able to resolve this.
  • RTX 3080, 3090, or 3070. Require newer drivers, so we will not presently work on these cards.
  • Gaming laptops require an external monitor.

All other Nvidia cards will work, including the Super cards.
You do not need a 3D display.

For complete driver and OS compatibility details please see our forum post.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We expect the price to go up as our game compatibility improves. If we can resolve the driver incompatibility, we expect to leave Early Access at a much higher price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are actively soliciting user opinions as to what is most important to them.
Go to our web page for Requests, to create new feature requests, game requests, and new bug reports. And vote on what matters most to you. We promise that whatever is at the top of the list is what will get developer time and attention.

We are also actively supporting people in the Steam forums.”

About This Game

HelixVision is dedicated to bringing you a virtual 3D TV where you can play any of the epic HelixMods in full stereoscopic 3D.

Try out our Free Demo to see how good HelixMod games can look. The Demo shows you stereoscopic screenshots on the giant HelixVision screen. It does not allow you to play any games, but the screen and environment are fully functional, and exactly as they appear when gaming. Free, 100M download, worth 5 minutes.

HelixVision starts with an easy to use interface to your installed games. One click launches your game into a VR environment that is a virtual giant stereoscopic screen, like a 3D home theater. Using Nvidia 3D Vision and the HelixMod converts them from 2D into stereoscopic 3D to play on the virtual theater. The screen is fully adjustable to your liking, including distance, size, vertical location, curve, and 3D strength.

HelixVision does not convert your games into full VR experiences, it is a big screen, 3D theater experience. You will still use your keyboard/mouse or game controllers to play. The VR controllers are used to adjust the game theater to your liking. HelixVision works with all VR headsets, including Index, Rift-S, and WMR.

Known incompatibilities:

  • AMD or Intel GPUs are not supported. We require Nvidia 3D Vision.
  • NVidia drivers 456.38 or greater are not currently supported. NVidia broke DX11 3D Vision in these drivers. We are investigating, but may not be able to resolve this problem.
  • RTX 3080, 3090, or 3070 require newer drivers and are thus not currently supported.
  • No DX12 games are currently working in 3D.
  • Gaming laptops require an external monitor.

Is HelixVision for you?

You should enjoy modding, which is pretty much the point of using a PC and not a console. You can expect to run into glitches and problems. Although we work hard to smooth out the experience, HelixVision is not and never will be a console experience. Modding is terrific and fun, and you get to experience things no one else sees, but naturally it doesn't always work smoothly.


Our goals are:

Ease of use – one click to launch on the virtual 3D TV.
Performance – minimizing the VR impact on the game.
Quality – minimal glitches.

Currently in Early Access, we are actively soliciting opinions about what is important to our users. You can add new requests, or vote up items important to you. Please see our web page.



HelixMod is a community of enthusiastic gamers making games run great in stereoscopic 3D. We focus on fixing graphical glitches in games that are automatically converted to stereo by NVidia 3D Vision.

The stereo gaming experience cannot be beat. Play incredible games like Witcher 3, Mass Effect, Tomb Raider, Batman Arkham Knight, Dishonored, Portal 2 and hundreds of others. Please note that no games are included with HelixVision.

In the HelixVision UI, at our webpage, and on the steam forums you can find a list of games currently supported by HelixVision. If you see even one game that strikes your fancy, you owe it to yourself to give HelixVision a try.
