LG's 3D Converter Software Makes 2D Smartphone Games More Dimensional
Put simply, this add-on adds "depth" to normal 2D titles. It's expected to benefit both game developers and smartphone users alike. Small and medium-sized game companies will be able to offer 3D versions of their existing 2D games without major investments in human resources, cost or time. Meanwhile, smartphone users will reap the benefits of being able to convert their 2D games into 3D anytime, anywhere free of charge. Once the 3D Game Converter is installed, users can enjoy 3D on previously purchased 2D games simply by activating the 3D Game Converter. Games can be switched back to 2D just as easily.
When a user opens a 2D mobile game through the 3D Game Converter, the program automatically scans the game to see if it is listed among the 2D mobile games optimized for 3D conversion. If the game has been optimized, it will be converted into 3D using default visual settings. Unlisted OpenGL-based 2D games can still be converted to 3D by adjusting the settings manually. Optimized settings for approximately 50 2D games will be available by October, with 50 more to be added by year's end.
