Last June, I purchased an LG 47LM7600 Passive 3DTV for use as my PC monitor, and I absolutely love the 2D and 3D picture quality of the set in general. Using Nvidia’s 3DTV Play addon (purchasable here) to play games in 3D caused an unacceptable negative impact on 3D picture quality. Activating Nvidia’s 3D Vision utility for passive 3DTVs known as 3DTV Play forced me to run games at 720p @ 60hz in games, and caused color bleeding and other negative artifacts. However, I’ve come across a fix that’s worked perfectly for my LG 47LM7600 on both Windows 7 and Windows 8 and should work perfectly for other similar passive 3D sets.

With OblyTile, a friendly utility created by xda-developers.com user Argony-OT, any Windows 8 user can apply beautiful, custom tiles to their Windows 8 Start Menu.

The main feature of Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system is undoubtedly the new Start Menu, which acts as a launcher for all of your frequently-used applications. By default, only official “Windows 8 Apps” from the Microsoft Store fully support the new “tile” launcher icons on the Start Menu. OblyTile removes this limitation.

Hi everyone!

Here we go! I’m very excited to start creating content for A Friendly Fox. Head on over to the “About ‘A Friendly Fox'” page for more information regarding what I’d like this site to become.

Here’s what the site currently looks like.

Humble Beginnings

I expect the look of my site to change very quickly.
