vorpX 19.2.0 Released

vorpX 19.2.0 has been released.

Most prominent functional addition in this release is a C API for modders that provides easy, vendor agnostic access to headset properties like tracking or camera data and on top of that some vorpX specific functions for a streamlined user experience. If you are a modder working on a camera/FOV mod for a game, check the vorpX help for instructions and code samples. If you aren’t a modder yourself, spread the word!

The release also comes with a variety of smaller improvements and of course new game profiles have been added as well as various existing profiles have been revisited and improved.

For a detailed list of changes and additions check the changelog below.

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

Supported headsets: Oculus Rift (DK2 still works), 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.
