A few more goodies gathered for the build. Not sure if I want to go Tri-SLI GTX260 or Tri-SLI GTX470. I'll probably go with the GTX470 because I intent to game a lot on the setup too. I'm still clearing out the room for the build. Ug, lots more to do on this before it's functional. The main headache is that ceiling fan in the room needs to be pulled.

You need to set up that treadmill and use it as your walk control. Go full virtual commando.

hehe, actually the treadmill will be in the room after the build is done. Also an exercise bike. I told myself if I'm going to be in front of the screen I at least should exercise more. :lol:

The second projector arrived yesterday. Did a bit more moving around of stuff out of the room for the screen build. I'm tied up with a wedding dvd production this weekend so probably not much to show for a few more days. Money projects take priority over hobby projects. Expect much more movement on the build next week. :wink:

Nothing on the build side of things at the moment. My current idea is to use the two S3D capable projectors and hide the third turned off to enable NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround. That'll allow me to run 3DVS on just two projectors for the setup. I then setup NTHUSIM for dual-projector and scale the triple resolution to the dual-projection. I'm pondering setting the triple resolution to 3072x768 and projecting that as 2560x720. NTHUSIM's bicubic scaling should make it look good regardless of whatever I do. It's not ideal but it'll work. Alternatively, I'm pondering selling my three EX525ST and getting the third projector that way, but as is this screen design is currently configured for dual-projector layout.

Experimenting with the GT720's today it looks like setting "High Altitude" mode on the fans might compensate for portrait rotation, so an alternate setup could be 3x1P 2150x1280 with 16:10 AR set on the projectors to scale as 2400x1280. Either way it goes these are pretty odd configurations just to get S3D function on a curved screen. The advantage of 3x1P is really short throw and a projection with 1280 pixel height.

Small update on things. I've reevaluated the build and will be instead putting it into the basement room again, but as a 13x13 full circular projection using the two GT720 and the 3 EX525ST. I'll use the two GT720 to watch movies on and the three EX525ST to play regular games on and all five for FSX.

I'll probably work up the details in the next few days to show. My plan is just to get it built. I can then diagram it out afterwards. :)
