I’ve been working on this for close to 5 hours now. I tried to get Vorpx to work with RE7 in Steam and it just hangs, takes forever. Ends up bringing up the box that asks if you want a hook helper, do nothing, quit program, etc.
Let me make one thing extremely clear. Bringing up Task Manager I have ZERO background apps running. ONLY mandatory systems. I even shut down my ICU software and my GHub software just to be safe.
I’ve tried hook helpers, running in admin mode, etc. Nothing works. I’ve uninstalled, rebooted and tried everything I know to do and Vorpx just won’t hook. That was about 2 hours of my time.
Then I tried to go on over to the Epic Store and try my hand at Metro Exodus. Again, over an hour of NOT hooking.
I have the Quest (Meta) program running (mandatory for Quest 3) and besides Steam or Epic nothing else. No Local or Cloud profiles work. I don’t get it. I’m not dumb. I’ve been building and maintaining personal computers for 30 years. Vorpx just will NOT work on my system.
System build is: Asus ROG STRIX Z590-E Gaming mobo
Intel Core i9-10900K
32GB G.Skill Ripjaw DDR4
Geforce RTX 3080
Logitech G910 Lightsync RGB gaming keyboard
Logitech G502 mouse
Logitech Z5500 550W 5.1 surround
Thermaltake View 91 Super Tower
Corsair H150i Elite Cooler
Corsair 950W Silent Runner PSU
Any help would be appreciated as of right now I’m feeling I just dropped $40 USD on something that won’t work. I’m getting ready to try my hand at Metro 2033 to see if that will work but I’m not holding my breath at this point. Thank you.Nov 13, 2023 at 7:27am #218454naomhaParticipant
Wanted to add an edit but unable I guess? Anyway, I got RE7 to work by going into the Beta Branch and using the “older” DX11 branch instead of the newer DX12 one that auto-installs. I should have clarified the DX version. Also, I was using the DX12 “Enhanced” version of Metro Exodus. I also deleted that and installed the older DX11 version. That STILL would not work on the Epic Store. Just wouldn’t hook at all. Maybe there’s been an update to the Epic store or the game? Unsure. Just wouldn’t hook for me. On a solid note, getting RE7 DX11 version to work was interesting. I’ll be honest, I tried a VR MOD earlier in the week before getting Vorpx and I think the MOD actually worked better, included my actual arms and whatnot. Lighting was a little wonky but seemed to perform better for me.
I haven’t been wowed by Vorpx yet. I’ll obviously try a bunch more games and see what I can get to happen with the Q3. I know no game that is non-vr will probably be perfect but after watching so many videos on different games I was expecting a much better experience out of the gate. I will say the Q3 is fantastic for VR made games though. NMS is awesome as is the standard Lone Echo, Into the Radius, etc.
