What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“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 will 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. HelixVision will continue to work, but might always require older drivers. Current best driver to use is 425.31.

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.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least six months.”

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

“Much better game compatibility. At Early Access, we expect to properly support only about 20 games. User feedback will be key in deciding which of the 800 HelixMod games to bring to HelixVision.

We expect to improve the UI, including a curved screen and 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.

We hope to be able to solve driver versioning problems, but cannot promise this, so it's possible we will always require older drivers.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently running well with a limited set of supported HelixMod games. Our website 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. 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.

At present it's best to use a little bit older NVidia driver 425.31, which fully supports 3D Vision and works on all versions of Windows. It's worth noting that we may not ever be able to support later drivers.

AMD and Intel GPUs are not supported, because we require NVidia 3D Vision to generate stereo. Any Nvidia card will work, you do not need a 3D display.”

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

“We expect the price to go up as our game compatibility improves. However we know that requiring an older driver can be a problem, so it's more likely we'll keep our price low.”

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 will also be 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.

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, then connecting to games that you already own and converting 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, and 3D strength.

HelixVision does not convert your games into full VR experiences, 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.


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 many others. Please note that no games are included with HelixVision.

In the HelixVision UI, and at our webpage, 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.
