Hi, this post helped me get it working, thanks!
For others, here’s the link to the scripthook page you can download and place in your Vorpx plugins folder:

Yes, does Vorpx have an IPD software setting besides the focal offset, like the IPD setting now available in the Steam VR settings?
marvinthedog describes the situation correctly but most people don’t seem to have the experience needed to understand what he’s saying. Basically, you can make the world feel miniature or life size using a negative IPD setting (so the images never cause eyes to diverge), and it’s a key element to an immersive VR experience.
With the latest Steam VR I can adjust the IPD for individual games but in non VR Steam games that option is not available.
Yes, I got it working with G3D using the Medieval Dynasty profile. The Bus Simulator 21 profile is now uploaded to the cloud profiles so search for that. It looks great!
I have setup Vorpx for many games without official profiles. The trick is to research the game engine (Unreal, Unity, etc) and the graphics API (DirectX, OpenGL, etc) for the game, and then find an existing profile based on a game that matches those two criteria and try it out. Since game engines and API have different versions you want to find an existing profile made around the same year as the unofficial game for which you want to setup a profile. I only play games in geometry 3D (not Z3D) so I look for profiles in which they claim it has G3D (geometry 3D).
For example, the latest Unreal Directx 11 (maybe 12?) profile I found people talking about on the forum was made for Medieval Dynasty and it works for Ranch Simulator and Bus Simulator both of which are Unreal DirectX 11 games made around the same year as Medieval Dynasty.
Some good profiles to start are:
Ark:Survival Evolved – Unreal Engine (2019 and earlier)
Medieval Dynasty – Unreal Engine (2020 and later)
Firewatch – Unity Engine
And it works for Bus Simulator 21 as well!
Thanks for the Medieval Dynasty (G3D) Unreal profile! It works for other modern Unreal games like Ranch Simulator!
Also found this explanation
There is however an explanation why some may experience an existing user profile as (partially) 3D. The first version of vorpX’s OpenGL render path used alternate frame rendering, which means the left and right eye are rendered at different points in time: left at frame 1, right at frame 2, left at frame 3, right at frame 4, and so on. Given these circumstances moving sideways (strafing) happens to have a similar effect as rendering two images for stereo 3D although vorpX doesn’t create any stereo 3D at all. Moving forward/backward doesn’t produce correct stereo 3D, but apparently some still experience what they see as 3D. My personal guess is that maybe their brains somehow try to make sense of the (garbage) input. I’d consider it way more likely though that you will experience anything else than strafing as weird and unpleasent, so try at your own risk.May 4, 2022 at 5:45am in reply to: How to get Riddick: Escape Butcher's Bay Developer's Cut to work with Win 10 #210850
Ogrescar, what are the various OpenGL profiles?
I found that No Man’s Sky uses OpenGl
No Man’s Sky and Kerbal Space Program profiles both use OpenGL.
Side-by-Side 3D reduces the resolution, but most 3D TVs use Frame Sequential method which doesn’t reduce the resolution.
The game runs in DirectX 12 and I can’t get it to run in DirectX 11 even though I used the -dx11 start option in Steam as well as forcing the game to use DirectX 11 using these instructions:
So far I have had no luck getting Vorpx to hook into it
I have the same judder problems in Portal 2 using Full VR mode :(
I tried all the settings in Vorpx, and graphic settings in Portal 2
There’s no judder in immersive mode, so how is that different?
Well there’s $40 wasted. Can’t run a single game with this. I read the instructions for Dk2 setup. I read the trouble shooting blog post, I spent 5 hours troubleshooting….and I flossed and exercised everyday.
I suspect there’s a group of Eastern Europeans laughing at us stupid Americans for buying something over the internet that everyone knows cant actually work.
Enjoy the money guys. I’ll make sure to mention Voprx is a worthless product everywhere I can.
