vorpX 18.1.0 Released

vorpX 18.1.0 has been released.

Without further ado the most important changes:

New game profiles and Geometry 3D for existing ones

The main focus of this update was creating new game profiles and adding Geometry 3D to quite a few existing ones that were Z3D only before. Most notable additions are: Kingdom Come Deliverance, Titanfall 2 and Nier Automata. Also don’t miss the beautiful Fe and Unravel in immersive screen mode. And last but not least relax with one or the other Telltale adventure. Special tip for action fans: Bayonetta is a sight to behold in 3D on the huge screen. Find the full list in the changelog below.

New OpenGL G3D render path

The OpenGL render path has been rewritten from the ground and is now capable of decent single frame Geometry 3D like its DirectX counterparts.

Oculus Home 2.0 Support

The vorpX desktop viewer now works with Oculus Home 2.0. vorpX also can handle issues in regard to fullscreen games on some PCs now that are caused by Oculus Home 2.0.

If you don’t own vorpX yet, you can buy it here:

Supported headsets: Oculus Rift DK2 and CV1, HTC Vive.

If you already own vorpX, it should auto-update when you start vorpX Control next time. If it doesn’t for some reason, simply use the web installer that you received when you purchased vorpX. It will download the latest version available.
