    hey! thx for reading... i have a 3ds issue
    first.....CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE 3D EFFECT?
    -the images jump off the screen?
    -or its just "diferent dimmensions" like you can see the volume and how far are objets...?

    the thing is i can barely see 3d effect...
    -WHEN I PLAY I CAN SEE ANY 3D IN GAME...BUT IF I PAUSE I SEE 3D SOMETIMES..WHEN THE OBJETS DONT MOVE
    WHEN I PUT THE 3D SLIDER ALL UP I GET MY EYES TIRED REEEALLLY FAST!!! if i put it halfway i cant see any 3d effect...

    here is the question..
    CAN YOU TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT DISTANCE DO YOU HAVE BETWEN YOUR 3DS AND YOUR FACE?
    HOW IS THE 3D EFFECT?
    YOUR EYES FEEEL TIRED WHEN YOU PLAY?

    THX

    1: Turn caps lock off
    2: Turn 3D off. It's a useless feature anyway. All it does is drain your battery really fast.

    The 3DS doesn't do much of pop-out. The 3D should look more like looking inside a box.

    Remember to try and hold it stright.

    Many people say many things, and they're usually casual gamers. The 3D effect is pointless. It's kinda cool for 5 minutes, then you'd get bored of it because it adds nothing to the actual game.
    All the 3D is, is a gimmick targeted at the 3D crazed general populace. Nothing else.

    Um, yes it does...
    Try this,http://gbatemp.net/t...3ds-video-beta/

    The 3d is amazing. More so to people who like 3d.

    Not only do I like the 3d feature for what it is, I also believe it does add to gameplay.
    If you like 3d, you notice that it keep things from looking smash together.
    It looks space out and what not.

    Well for me the easiest way to find the right position at first was the activity log icon. It has quite a nice pop out effect.
    On the home menu navigate to the activity log, but dont start it. On the topscreen they should be an animation with a pen poping out.
    Now just get comfortable, and try to find the right distance, should take you only few seconds.

    Also don't put the slider to max,just start low. And everyday after some playing, put it a little bit more up.
    That way you get easier used to it without your eyes going tired.

    shouldn't you have been able to see the effect when you went through the 3D adjustment during your set-up?
    It really shows the difference within a matter of seconds

    The 3D is like looking through a window that's always right outside the action. It's not a pop-out effect. It more like an effect that makes it look like the things on the screen actually exist in 3D space.

    It also depens on the game you're playing. I have DoAD, Pilotwings, OoT and MK7, and by far the best effect is in Pilotwings. Your character is poping out the screen and the landscape is noticeable far from it... it's just great. In others, like Mario Kart, it's too subtle to notice yet it really adds something to gameplay. For example, in Mario Kart, if I have been playing in 3d for a long time, when I turn it off I usually hit the walls or miss the road, so it also depends on every person.

    To save you the trouble, I'll go ahead and link you to the already converted 3d video in that thread directly.

    Light reflecting off the screen can mess with it.
    So try getting in a room with no direct sunlight and turning up your brightness for the best results

    Ok, I never owned a 3DS, but I've had problems with 3D on my electronics.
    Firstly, try to relax your eyes when looking at the screen. Imagine that you're seeing depth in the image.
    Start off with the lowest 3D settings, then day-by-day keep going higher.
