Trying to get this game to work. It boots into the Rift just fine, but the rendered image seems to alternate in each eye, causing some terrible flickering, as well as mouse trails. It happens with 3D on or off. The game looks completely fine on my monitor, but in the headset it flickers. The flickering speeds up if I’m getting higher FPS and I’ve tried turning on and off every setting in the menu. Please help! Thanks!Jun 23, 2016 at 2:54am #103955
I cannot play Amnesia Dark Descent at all. Both eyes get flashing flickering of the game and the frame rates is so low it would be less than 1 frame per second. Im running win 10 64 bit. AMD fx-8350 Black edition and an R9 390x video card. Quake 2 does the exact same thing. I have tried many settings to no avail. Games like Skyrim and fallout 4 run just fine. It seems to be a possible issue with Open GL not really sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Jun 23, 2016 at 3:03am #103956
I have the exact same issue. It also happens with Quake 2. Did you ever find a resolution?Jun 23, 2016 at 3:41am #103957
Nope, never received any support. Although, like you said in your other post about Quake 2, it’s probably related to OpenGL. With how many people looking forward to playing Amnesia with the rift and vorpx, I’m surprised it took this long for someone to respond. But no, I never did get it working. :(Jun 23, 2016 at 4:31am #103959
I just got my rift a week ago and then discovered vorpx. I made my post first but then found yours. I think the issue is that there are very few of us who have a rift AND have vorpx so not as many people having our issues. Is your video card an AMD card?Jun 23, 2016 at 4:36am #103960
Yeah, my video card is an XFX R9 390. You’re probably right, that’s a really small niche of people, rift+vorpx+amnesia. Hopefully we can get an answer at some point, I just figured an update broke the functionality or something.Jun 23, 2016 at 11:11am #103965RalfKeymaster
I merged the two threads.
This is an AMD issue and unfortunately there is no easy fix for it (except not using an AMD card). OpenGL in vorpX relies on OpenGL extensions to get the image from OpenGL to the DirectX based rest of vorpX. Support for some of these extensions is rather flaky in AMD drivers unfortunately.
A possible workaround is using the vorpX Desktop Viewer instead of vorpX hooking directly into OpenGL. This won’t give you Stereo 3D, but the game will be playable otherwise.
1. Start the vorpX Desktop Viewer.
2. Pause the vorpX watcher (right click menu of the vorpX tray icon).
3. Start the game windowed! Fullscreen OpenGL will not work with the desktop viewer.
4. Move the game window to the center of the view.
5. Turn off Virtual Cinema Mode in the vorpX ingame menu to play in full VR.Jun 23, 2016 at 7:57pm #103988
Bummer! Well at least we now know the issue. I will not plan on playing any OpenGL games for now :) Thanks Ralf! Appreciate all the work you’re doing!Jun 24, 2016 at 1:13am #103998
Yes thank you for the response and possible solution. Maybe AMD will release some drivers that fix this issue. At least now I know its not an issue with Vorpx.Oct 31, 2020 at 4:19pm #197620steph12Participant
necro’ing this thread just to say, wow this game is amazing with vorpx :D thanks Ralf for making this possible !
glad i finally tried playing this game ^^Dec 28, 2021 at 5:51pm #208557PophiclessParticipant
just wanted to know, whether there is ANY other/new way to play Amnesia TDD with Radeon GPU (RX6700XT with HP Reverb G2), since it’s been a few years.
The (basically) immersive screen variant is nice, but is there a fix for the “eye switching” and stutter to play it in Geometry 3D, yet?
I basically got the same problem as quoted below, but sometimes one eye goes just dark and another shows (part of) the image.
(anyway, Happy New Year everyone!)
