This page is a work in progress - feel free to expand it with extra knowledge, before & after screenshots, etc.



The recommended tool for working with profiles is NVIDIA Profile Inspector or later due to its ability to decrypt internal settings.

Latest continuous integration build

Source code

Forum thread (note that the download linked from here does not yet support decrypting internal settings)

3DMigoto 1.2.50 now has built in support for working with driver profiles, including decrypting and logging the current profile in d3d11_log.txt, and making any changes necessary when the game is launched.

Obsolete tools:

NVIDIA Profile Inspector or older

NVIDIA Inspector or older (English mirror)

GeForce 3D Profile Manager

NVIDIA Inspector Custom Stereo Settings Names

NVIDIA Inspector (old versions): Download this CustomSettingNames_en-EN.xml file to replace the one from NVIDIA Inspector, which will add all the settings listed on this page to the Stereo category.

NVIDIA Profile Inspector: This program automatically decodes most setting names (you may need to select "Show unknown settings from NVIDIA predefined profiles" to see them) Edit: This no longer works as recent drivers have removed the DLLs that the tool relied on to find the stereo settings names. There are some exceptions - most notably the all important StereoProfile setting is missing. You can use the XML file linked above, but name it 'CustomSettingNames.xml' (i.e. remove the '_en-EN').

Important note about encoding of "Internal" Settings

Some profiles are shipped with the internal settings flag set on certain settings. These show up with "InternalSettingFlag=V0" in Geforce Profile Manager, but there is no easy way to distinguish them in NVIDIA Inspector. These settings are encrypted and the values read out with these tools will not match any of the documentation here. Further, if they are written back with NVIDIA Inspector, the flag will be cleared and they will become corrupt. Geforce Profile Manager allows them to be written back with the flag intact avoiding the corruption, but still does not help understand them.

A script to decipher these values from Geforce Profile Manager is available: here

NVIDIA Profile Inspector or later can correctly decode these, and is now the recommended tool for working with driver profiles. Version Latest build

3DMigoto 1.2.50 and later includes support for logging and updating driver profiles, and correctly handles encrypted settings. The undocumented option [Logging] dump_all_profiles=1 can be used to have it decrypt and log every profile instead of just the ones relevant to the game being run.

Notes on settings with multiple IDs

Some settings on this page are listed with two or three IDs. This is not fully understood yet. Generally you should stick to the first value listed, but if a profile also lists the second or third value in this list it might be used in place of the first (however a given profile will only use a specific ID out of the second or third in the list).

The following settings have multiple IDs:

Name Primary ID 1st Alternate ID 2nd Alternate ID
StereoConvergence 0x708DB8C5 0x7077BACE 0x7084807E

StereoProfile (AKA The Mystery Stereo Setting) 0x701EB457

This setting is known to be very important to stereo profiles. We now know it's official name is STEREO_STEREOPROFILE, and will be referred to as "StereoProfile" in future releases of NVIDIA Profile Inspector.


- The mere existance of this setting on a DX9 profile will enable Stereo in windowed mode, regardless of the value.

- This setting is required to enable a lot of stereo related code in the driver.

- Certain other stereo settings (e.g. StereoTextureEnable) may be ignored without this setting.

- If this is missing in a profile, attempting to save the profile with Ctrl+F7 will not work, and will restore the default convergence instead. It has been noted that adding this setting to the base profile can solve this globally, but may cause the monitor to switch to stereo mode when using certain 2D applications (e.g. VS2015), which may be undesirable in some cases.

Bit Definitions

Missing Not a stereo profile (Certain things will not work, including saving the profile via Ctrl+F7)
0x00000000 Not a stereo profile (Certain things will not work - need to confirm exactly what differs compared to missing)
0x00000001 Stereo profile (everything will work)
0x2241AB21 Encrypted, upgrade NVIDIA Profile Inspector

Notable Settings

StereoTextureEnable (0x70edb381 / 0x70e1518c / 0x70c0125e)

- Controls the heuristics that determines which render targets & Z buffers are stereoised and which are not.

- Controls the heuristics that determines in what situations the stereo correction formula will be applied.

- Some bits are used for specific games.


- Setting this to all F's will turn a game into mono, suggesting that some high bits might filter out some render targets, rather than enabling them.

Bit Definitions

Contact DarkStarSword or Bo3b privately for a complete list of bit definitions for this setting.

Chiri determined a number of these (see this post)

0x00000001 [ET] = Stereoize render target textures which are of size or exceeding the size of the backbuffer (and are not square).
0x00000002 [ESMT] = Stereoize all non square render target textures smaller then backbuffer.
0x00000004 [ESQT] = Stereoize sqare render target textures.
0x00000008 [DBBST] = ???
0x00000010 [DBBS] = ???

Known Values

This only lists known values of games using the high bits (0x10000 and above), since the meaning of the low bits are all known. These high bits are believed to be for game specific quirks:

0x0001xxxx MX vs. ATV Reflex, Prince of Persia - The Forgotten Sands, Prince of Persia(gameinterpreters_rd.exe)
0x0002xxxx Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, EverQuest II, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin(Demo), Lost Planet: Colonies Edition, Serious Sam II, Vizerra Viewer

Default Value

If not specified in a profile, the driver appears to use 0x23 as the default.

StereoUseMatrix (0x70e34a78)

- Able to automatically fix halo type issues in many games

Known Values

0x00000000 Disabled (only vertex output position will be adjusted by the driver)
0x00000001 Enabled (other texcoord outputs based on the position will be adjusted by the driver)

StereoFlagsDX10 (0x702442fc)

- Able to resolve mono depth buffer issues in DirectX 11 games, such as Far Cry 4 and Ryse: Son of Rome.

Bit Definitions

0x00008000 STEREO_COMPUTE_SAME_RESOURCES_AS_GRAPHICS - "stereorize the same resources as for graphics (do not mark all UAVs as stereorizable)"
0x00004000 STEREO_COMPUTE_ENABLE - enables running compute shaders once for each eye. Fixes mono depth buffer issue in Far Cry 4 (SLI users can alternatively resolve this with custom SLI compatibility bits), Witcher 3, and other games.
0x00000024 One of these two bits negated the separation value reported to 3Dmigoto in Far Cry 4

StereoCutoff (0x709a1ddf / 0x704fcf5c / 0x7053569a)

Present in almost all Stereo profiles, but meaning unknown. My complete guess is that it may be related to driver heuristics to decide when the stereo correction formula is applied (e.g. for UI elements)?

Possible Values

0x00000000 Unknown
0x00000001 Default
0x00000002 Use StereoCutoffDepthNear
0x00000004 Use StereoCutoffDepthFar
0x00000008 Unknown

Other values are invalid.


- Setting this to 0x00000000 broke shadows in Miasmata

Observations from D-Man11 (see this post)

Note: the values below have been edited from the original post to use the setting names and their decrypted values.

Interesting thing is, if you apply the TR: Underworld profile, the UI text doesn't split, just the background.

Messing around with Legend, I found that StereoCutoffDepthNear = 25.0 and Setting StereoCutoff = 0x00000002 were the responsible flags from the Anniversary profile to stop the UI from splitting. Either by itself would not do anything.

If I just added them to the existing Legend profile, it wouldn't work, something was stopping it. (DarkStarSword's note - this may have been because they were encrypted. This experiment should be repeated)

If I deleted everything from the Legend profile, excluding StereoProfile = 0x00000001 (which is needed, if you remove it, the profile defaults to generic) and added the 2 flags from Anniversary, the UI would not split.

   StereoCutoffDepthNear = 0x41c80000 (25.0) // is exclusive to TR: Anniversary
   StereoCutoff          = 0x00000002 // is found in 26 other profiles
   StereoProfile         = 0x00000001 // is found in 2110 profiles

So the above 3 settings need to be present and there must not be any current settings in the profile to block the effect.

I did not bother to find the offending setting in the original Legend profile.

StereoCutoffDepthNear (0x7050e011 / 0x704ef483 / 0x7031de06)

Floating point value used when StereoCutoff is set to 2 to set a threshold depth to stop the UI splitting when it is rendered nearer than this value (someone confirm if that is entirely correct and if this can affect other things besides the UI).

StereoCutoffDepthFar (0x70add220)

Floating point value used when StereoCutoff is set to 1 to set a threshold depth to stop the UI splitting when it is rendered further away than this value (someone confirm if that is entirely correct and if this can affect other things besides the UI).

GameSpecific0 (0x702244b7)

For a DX9 game, this defines which constant register the driver injects the stereo settings in with x = -separation*convergence, y = separation (making the stereo correction formula pos.x += c255.x + c255.y * pos.w). Only vertex shaders that the driver modifies will have anything injected at all. The default is c255, and StereoProfile must be set for this setting to have any effect. Note that unlike the equivelent options for DX11 games, merely accessing this register will *not* neutralise the driver's stereo correction.

Known Values

25 NBA 2K9
28 MLB 2K12, Pro Baseball 2K, NBA 2K12, NBA 2K13
198 Alaska, Diablo III
236 World Of Warcraft (but note that this profile may be outdated from the old DX9 version)
248 Rogue Warrior
254 Mafia II, Serious Sam II

DX10VSCBNumber (0x70f8e408 / 0x70f64a32)

For a DX10/11 game, this defines which constant buffer the driver uses to inject the stereo parameters into vertex shaders. The first float in the buffer is -separation*convergence, the second is separation, the third seems to be unused and the fourth indicates that 3D Vision is enabled. The default value is cb12. Note that in contrast to the equivelent DX9 option, merely declaring this constant buffer in a shader will disable the driver's built in stereo correction for that shader (for a HLSL shader the buffer must be accessed and the result used in a meaningful way otherwise the compiler will optimise out the declaration).

More info:

Note that constant buffer 14 is reserved for "internal use" and not normally accessible through HLSL (it is defined in shader model 4/5 and declaring it in assembly proves that it does exist and can be used for this purpose, but it is not clear if that might ever interfere with anything else).

Observations from Losti

The below post has been decrypted. The original post is here.

So i have did some investigations with the nvidia used values and i discovered that:

(For Dragon Age: Inquisition)

0x10000002 high depth UI and world
0x1000000a high depth UI and world
0x1000001a high depth UI and world
0x20000002 high depth UI and world
0x2000000a high depth UI and world
0x10000015 no Depth, UI only right eye
0x10000102 low depth UI and world
0x20000006 UI @ screen depth world high depth
0x51000002 Game will not have CM
0x11000006 Game will not have CM
0x11000002 Game will not have CM
0x41000002 Game will not have CM
0x21000006 Game will not have CM
0x21000002 Game will not have CM

own tests:

0x20000006 UI @ screen dempth world high deph
0x20000007 high depth UI and world
0x10000036 UI @ screen depth world high deph
0x10000106 UI @ screen depth world very-LOW deph EXCELLENT RATING-TEXT
0x20000106 UI @ screen depth world very-LOW deph GOOD RATING-TEXT
0x20000306 application unknown, no CM
0x10000306 very low Depth, UI only right eye
0x10000606 UI @ screen depth world high deph
0x10000706 very low Depth, UI only right eye
0x10000007 UI @ screen depth world high deph, UI only rigth eye
0x10000001 all is 2D
0x10000000 all is 2D, ALT+TAB=crash
0x10000003 crash
0x1000000d all is 2D, UI only right eye
0x1000000c all is 2D, UI only right eye

i think the use of the numbers at the begining (0x20 and 0x10 is fot he GOD or EXCELLENT rating text display)

006 at the end will give me UI at screen-depth and a 3D world.

002 at the end will give me UI and a 3D world.

Looking over the list of games with this setting I suspect this is a very old feature that well and truly pre-dates DX9 and probably won't work in any modern game.

Floating point value set in 26 profiles with values ranging from 0.00003125 to 0.04

RHW stands for Reciprocal of Homogeneous W, really just a fancy term for 1 / linear depth. inf is presumably short for infinite depth.

Floating point value set in 29 profiles with values ranging from 0.05 to 1.0

Presumably related to Rhwinf, and "scr" is likely short for screen depth.

Known Values

1.0 Kane & Lynch: Dead man, Serious Sam III

Zinf (0x70fc13ad)

At a guess this is probably similar to Rhwinf, but uses the output Z coordinate of the vertex shader instead of the output W coordinate.

Known Values

0.0 Call of Duty: Ghosts

Zscr (0x707f0e69)

At a guess this is probably similar to Rhwscr, but uses the output Z coordinate of the vertex shader instead of the output W coordinate. Presumably related to Zinf in the same way Rhwscr is related to Rhwinf.

CreateStereoDTAfterPresentNum (0x70a7fc7f)

To confirm, but presumably delays initialising 3D Vision until the game has drawn this number of frames, possibly to work around crashes on launch or other issues caused by 3D Vision being enabled when the game is launched, but works if enabled later.

Registry Settings

These are settings discovered in the 3D Vision driver that are not listed in the profile table, meaning they can only be set via the registry or (in some cases) control panel. Other settings on this page may (or may not) also be placed in the registry.

On a 64bit OS these settings are under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\Stereo3D

This section is incomplete.


Overrides MonitorSize, but is not reset constantly making it a superior option to depth hacks.


Enables the use of driver profiles.


That's not a hex value - that's a literal name of a possible registry key, including the "0x".
