vorpX 18.2.0 Released

vorpX 18.2.0 has been released.

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: The Hunter: Call of the Wild, Farming Simulator 2017, Conan Exiles, Final Fantasy XV, Unreal Tournament 3.

Also various other profiles have been added and many existing ones have been enhanced by adding Geometry 3D and/or DirectVR.

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

Supported headsets: Oculus Rift DK2 and CV1, HTC Vive, other SteamVR compatible headsets (e.g. Windows Mixed Reality)

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.
