So today I got a message to update to 8.1 for Free. Update went smoothly no errors or issues, until I play eve. From the character selection screen it started to look hazy and different colored from what im used to. I continue onward to the station and low and behold everything is slightly blurry and 3D looking. Not sure if this is a bug with eve or my graphics card or just windows being windows. Anyone else have this issue when they updated?

ISSUE FOUND: Sterosocpic 3D was enabled by default now when Nvidia was installed. Disable and restart and you're golden!

Yeap. I've been here.... Except Sterosocpic 3D was not on... I had to reinstalll Nvidia driver (GTX760) and reboot, to see that the Sterosocpic 3D was indeed "on"... unchecked, restart EVE and "VOILA"...

Thanks Dirk, you lead me to the solution :)

Thanks, i suspected it was something to do with 3D glasses, but didn't know where exactly to disable it. Just entered NVIDIA Control Panel and first thing i saw is Stereoscopic 3D Enabled.

The quickest way is to just do "CTRL+T" in-game. That disables/enables stereoscopic on the fly.

Confirming. I have the latest WHQL drivers and just upgraded from win8 to 8.1 on a GTX 670. Stereoscopic was on by default and EVE char select screen looked like a red haze filter was applied. Closed EVE, unchecked that box at nvidia control panel, restarted EVE. Looks fine now. || || Goonswarm Economic Warfare Cabal

The Stereoscopic Mode of the nVidia driver can also be toggled via the shortcut "Ctrl-T" (provided it was not changed in the driver) if you do not wish to restart EVE.

as did i have continuose crashes after i upgraded to 8.1 after hours of trouble shooting and reinstalling i found out that the add on which you can install from teamspeak, to overlay and record vids was the culprit..

so please check that if you have problems..

Im looking all over the place in the nvidia control panel for this checkbox everyone seems to keep telling me about. I shouldnt have to CTRL +T every time i start my client.. where exactly in the control panel do i see this to disable it?
