Nice can’t wait to see it, loved your Manhunt 2 and Resident Evil 6 vids, and the xwing video was fantastic, I didn’t know the game now looked so good and worked so well in VR, great to see this kind of content.Dec 27, 2022 at 12:21pm in reply to: vorpX 23.1.0 BETA #214338
Amazing to see a new update! I think I won’t mess with beta for now, but the gesture system seems promising, thanks for the update Ralf.Dec 17, 2022 at 3:58pm in reply to: Is The End of VR Nigh? #214195
I don’t agree with this, I’m quite happy that Luke Ross has enough support that he can afford constant development in VR mods, tons of great stuff is coming from his work, so I’m glad with that. Besides, with one single payment you get all the mods he’s done, so you get a lot for those $15.
On the other side, is quite clear the business model behind Vorpx is not working, and for that reason we barely see updates, even though Vorpx is inmensely superior to Luke Ross mods, with hundreds of supported games, and a huge amount of options to configure every game to your needs.
You call him greedy? You’re greedy asking for everything in exchange of nothing and even being proud of it, that’s true greed. I’m all for people getting paid for their hard work. He asks for the incredible amount of $15, that would let you play many AAA games in almost made for VR form. That’s truly cheap.
Can you imagine that Ralf could make a living with Vorpx? Can you imagine the amazing profiles, improvements and technologies he could create? It’s quite clear he does not earn enough money, and this amazing software feels like it’s dying to me.
I already suggested Ralf he went the Patreon model but he didn’t like it, he took the right decision with single-game profiles, I wish he went by a ‘temporary exclusive single profile model’, where patreon supporters could get a single game mod-like profile just like Luke Ross, then maybe after 3 months or so, that profile would be included in Vorpx for everyone else. Freelechers would be happy, people dying to play a game in VR would be happy, and he’d probably earn a lot more money to support his development. I hope he finds a way to make it work, because Vorpx is amazing but feels abandoned.Dec 16, 2022 at 11:29am in reply to: Is The End of VR Nigh? #214180
And also, imagine that 1) PSVR2 gets either official or hacked steam VR support, and 2) Half Life Alyx comes to PSVR2. That would make it sell several more millions of units.Dec 14, 2022 at 12:01am in reply to: Quest 2 or Pico 4? #214155
Great to hear, I’ve got mine but haven’t tested Vorpx yet, I’m waiting for a new gpu to get the max out of those 4k screens.Dec 13, 2022 at 11:57pm in reply to: Is The End of VR Nigh? #214154
I’m pretty sure PSVR2 is going to shake things a bit more, imho we’re in something similar to a console “end of cycle”, Quest 2 is 2 years old so games that never looked that good now are horrendous, developing for PC is costly and PSVR1 is completely outdated now, so we’re in some kind of limbo right now. PSVR2 is going to open the VR market of several million devices with high powered console behind it, so it’s going to revitalize the VR space and many new games developed for it will end arriving to PC too, at least that’s what I’m hoping for.
Also, Apple incoming VR headset could make the whole scene explode if it has some interesting gaming capabilities and gets mass adoption.Nov 22, 2022 at 11:10pm in reply to: 4090 Impressions #213857
Nice to hear!Nov 20, 2022 at 6:30pm in reply to: 4090 Impressions #213838
I’m tempted to get a Radeon RX 7900 XTX, if they perform like a 4080 at $1000 it would be a good option, but I wonder how well do ATI cards work with Vorpx?Nov 10, 2022 at 4:37pm in reply to: Cyberpunk VR Update Thread #213697
Fantastic news, thanks Ralf for the fast update.Sep 22, 2022 at 1:44am in reply to: vorpX 21.3.2 Available Now #213106
Well I’m honored :)
Glad to hear that everything is fine and vorpx is still en route, it’s still what I use VR for most of the time so I freak out a bit when things slow down, so hearing that everything’s is ok is a huge relief.
And no more “so…” questions, I promise. :)Sep 20, 2022 at 6:19pm in reply to: vorpX 21.3.2 Available Now #213086
So…any news?Jul 5, 2022 at 12:19pm in reply to: Does anyone enjoy aliens colonial marines? #211370

Has anyone tried this with Vorpx? : https://www.moddb.com/mods/templargfxs-acm-overhaulDec 27, 2021 at 12:04am in reply to: Cyberpunk VR Update Thread #208493
So since this uses alternate frame rendering, does it have better performance than the vanilla profile? Even with z3d performance wasn’t too good for me on a 2080ti before, so I preferred to play some other games, has it improved now?Nov 14, 2021 at 12:48am in reply to: How to get Z3D looking good? #207287
I suggest you increase 3d strength to max, it helps a bit. I find that first person games work best with z3d, since you don’t need much depth, but thrid person games don’t work too well.
