    "Proper 3D. Like, you need the red & blue glasses and everything. I'd imagine that makes the game 2x as terrifying, and as such, too terrifying for me, but for more adventurous souls, you can find details below on how to get it running, along with the minimum specs you'll need to do so.

    First things first, what youll need:

    Windows Vista or XP
    Nvidia 8xxx series or later
    Free superbowl 3d glasses
    Left 4 Dead

    You will need to install some Nvidia drivers first.

    1. Install 181.22 For XP ver 181.20
    2. Reboot
    3. Install Nvidia 3d Stereoscopic drivers 181.25 For XP ver 91.31
    4. Execute this registry hack

    What the hack does:
    First it enables the use of colored 3d glasses (AKA anaglyph)
    Next, it changes from the default red/blue lenses to the superbowl colorcode yellow/blue lenses.
    And finally, it enables the 3d Stereo drivers.

    5. Enter the nvidia control panel and enable the steroscopic settings in the stereo tab.

    Start Left 4 Dead and enter a game. It should be yellow/blue 3D.

    One final bit, the drivers support more than just Left 4 Dead. heres a full list of supported games.

    to remove the registry entries, run this registry file and then reinstall the 3d stereo drivers from nvidia. This will restore the default values.

    yeah... "3D" has never really ever worked. This red/blue wave conversion shit is fucking terrible.

    I was able to get it to "work"...I think. The colors were kinda jacked up, and with the glasses on I couldn't make out any lone zombies. Either my eyes are fucked, or the "3-D" just isn't happening.

    Wait a second.... aren't these modern videogames 3-d already? Cause I do not recall Mario being able to raccoon-cape his ass over the mountains in the background...
