The simple solution to 3D making the screen go darker, turn up gamma/brightness ingame, if you're using a modern monitor it becomes easy. Use sRGB normally (via monitor settings) and for games switch to 6400 with a better brightness/contrast for that game, once you exit the game, switch back to srgb, problem solved in the push of a couple of buttons, just be sure to watch out for a washed out colour effect.
Next up, making the blu-ray player in my PC a 3D one, not sure that's possible but I have a soldering iron and a vague idea of how to use it, or at least which end of it gets hot.
/edit @ above - that's not the same 3D as 3D Vision. That method basically splits the image into red/green, the 3D Vision glasses do not do that, it's actually 2 different pictures, kind of like double vision, with each different image being sent to each eye at 60hz. Imagine it like this, your screen is a 120hz so the image is refreshed 120 times per second, 60 of those images are sent to the left eye, 60 to the right (even if your ingame frame rate is 5) which is a totally different technology than wearing the red/green specs.

A strange obsession, mine. But better to be addicted to smartphones and gismos than cocaine or ***, I suppose. Well, I don’t know, the result is the same after all, very little sleep, great expense and horrific mess everywhere.
