Yup, without pausing the watcher game won’t even start. Paused the watcher, let the game go into menu screen, resume watcher, start the Desktop Viewer. After a few seconds, I get a magnifying glass in my Oculus and picture freezes, while it still going on my PC Screen.
Hi Ralph, yes, it crashes with that workaround. For some reason Desktop Viewer crashes. Same in Witcher 3.
You most like getting nauseous. Two big reasons for that – if you have lower than GTX970 you probably have low fps, but in general side scrolling is very nausea inducing. You may also have resolution set to too high, which your PC can’t support to provide optimal fps. The only thing I can recommend, turn your head left or right while turning in game then turn your head back, or, while turning, just close your eyes for a second. This should minimize the nausea. Running forward or backward is not as bad, but when you start turning left or right in game, while your head is not turning, you make your brain go crazy. So closing the eyes, or turning your head along the camera turning, will minimize those unpleasant feelings.
Try to disable OC, just s guess though. I used to have some issues with older games some time ago even without VR when CPU was OCed.
In my case, I use all the steps, but after I resume vorpx and start desktop viewer, it crashes (desktop viewer, I thinkg) after about 10 seconds. I tried to switch to theater mode and back, not do anything, cranes anyway. I use GTX 1080, 32GB RAM and all the good jazz… I get some error, but I am at work, so I don’t remember what it says exactly.
Yes and no less than GTX970… Or even better – GTX 1070/1080 for amazing VR performance.
They need to update Vorpx to support latest Witcher 3. I think the latest expansion (Blood and Wine) changed something and Vorpx won’t hook any longer. It simply crashes in my case. I use Oculus CV1 though.
Push Delete key in game to open the vorpX menu. Turn Cinema mode to off if you want to play fullVR. There is also the option to change/disable 3D also. You’ll probably want to keep in on Z-Normal for best results.
Delete to open and close menu
Mousewheel click to edgepeek/zoom out
Alt+Spacebar to recenter screen
Alt+F to display frame rate
Cinema mode for Witcher 3 is pretty bad. Everything seems to be very close to your eyes… 3D mode is even worse. Since its not a first person game the aspect of camera rotates from the point of Garrett, even worse than Cinema mode.
Star Citizen crashes, so it won’t work with VorpX and CV1 for a while prolly. The Witcher 3, for me at least, just runs in 2D on a big screen, instead of 3D, even though it is on supported games list.
yeah Skyrim is working great! I have about 60 mods now installed and it even looks beatiful. My GTX 680 and 8 core AMD CPU handling Skyrim very well on High settings through DK2. I try not to move the head too much as there is still some jittering going on even though not too much. Smooth like a baby’s butt experience in dungeons and world maps, but if I get into city turning head or looking up or down is a bit jittery.
I don’t have to run DK2 as primary display. I usually change resolution of my monitor to 1024×1028, and set it to 75Hz and everything is golden. IPD was the only problem in my case. That’s why things looked doubled. Thanks for VorpX. Without it I’d be still poking around short Demos, some are nice but playing a full game like Skyrim is a whole lot better experience. I almost pooped my pants last night while I was going to the dungeon for quest and all of a sudden this black wolf jumps me from behind the tree. What the heck! LOL.
If any improvements possible I wish VorpX to have “profiles” that can be used in specific games. Like pressing DEL there are bunch of settings to play with while setting VorpX for your best experience. So separate profiles that you can assign to specific game would be great after you play with settings through DEL inside the game and find optimal ones for your eyes and that game, so that VorpX could remember them, or some pre-coded profiles that would change to several optimal settings templates to try etc.
My main gripe probably is that headtracking gives a bit weird impression, thats probably because Skyrim doesn’t really have OR support and VorpX doing its best. I tried to play with image zoom, and different FOV until found the configuration that I could live with.
Anyways, keep up the good work Ralp! You have a birght future ahead of you if you can make VorpX support as many best games as possible, especially these AAA titles like Skyrim. IMHO OR will be very popular in gaming community and being able to play old games with OR on would be an awesome change of experience.
here is the fix for Fallout 3 – I have 8 cores in CPU so this lowers it to two and it doesn’t crash any more:
Open up the fallout.ini file in: My Documents\My Games\Fallout3
Find the line:
change it to:
Add another line after it and insert:
This will limit the game to 2 cores and prevent the engine bug from causing the game to freeze.
*If the game still crashes write this iNumHWThreads=1
Oh, ok thanks. I have Nvidia GPU. Processor is AMD however…
Fallout 3 – Game of the Year edition. Can you please add support to that, it keeps crashing on me while in DK2. Thanks!
