I can't enable stereoscopic 3D in Deus Ex: Human Revolution (the button appears red)? I have the latest drivers and am using Windows 7 x64 but the game does not allow me to enable this feature.

I'm using an i7 with 8GB of RAM and an ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics card.

What can I do?

I Couldnt get it to work by stock either, but the solution given in this forum post worked.

But, be very careful. This involves registry editing, which can be very dangerous if you get it wrong.

Click on Start button, type regedit, then click OK. Navigate to the following place in the registry (Windows 7, 64BIT. Should work in most OS's) ...

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21...\Software\Eidos\Deus Ex: HR\Graphics]

and edit StereoMode, setting the value to 4.

You may have to repeat occasionally these steps, the game may reset the value back to 0 if you change any of the gfx settings.

  • Much better :) I've tweaked it a bit so the registry stuff is highlighted and I'm swapping my -1 for a +1.

  • Thanks for try, but I was not successfull. I set the value in registry to 4 but ingame option remains red, unable to change it. Any other idea how to run this up?
