There might be some eye strains during cut scenes, so skipping them might be a good idea. GTA 5 for VR uses a technique called alternative-eye rendering which might cause eye strain, you can disable this, but you will not get that cool 3D effect and 90 fps.
Step 2: Run the game and make the following changes to your settings. Step 4: Unzip the downloaded mod GTAV_REAL_mod_by_LukeRoss.rar into the main game folder, i.e., the one where GTA5.exe is located.
Go to your Documents\Rockstar Games\ GTA V folder, and make a backup copy of the settings.xml file that contains your current graphics settings. Next, you have to replace and overwrite your settings.xml with either of the two versions that were put inside the Grand Theft Auto V folder when you extracted the mod: select Grand Theft Auto V\Settings\Low\settings.xml if you have a low-end system, or Grand Theft Auto V\Settings\High\settings.xml if you have a high-end system.
Step 6: Make sure your Windows default audio is set to the Oculus Rift headset. Step 7: That’s it folks, you have successfully downloaded and installed GTA5 for VR on your Oculus Rift.
As mentioned above, removing all mods before trying the guide will help in solving a lot of problems. If you have problems reentering the view, just shaking your headset might do the trick.
For any other issues you might face, the official README is a good place. Development for this build has stopped in favor of a above-mentioned version; There are many bugs.
This is a free, third-party mod that adds VR support to Grand Theft Auto V offline. DX11 support for Viral Perception, a free stereo injector, is reportedly in the works.
If you installed the game through Steam, the default location will be “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam apps\common\Grand Theft Auto V”. You should not need to make any additional changes if you’re using Corps’s Geometry 3D mode, although feel free to play with the settings to suit your tastes.
Start GTA V’s Story Mode (this mod is meant to be used offline, do not attempt to use it online! ) As usual, and hit to open the VR Mod Menu.
Your contributions will help this project survive and will go towards supporting the upcoming VR hardware! That’s right, the GTA Virtual Reality Five mod we all have been waiting for is finally out.
Just in time for the Quest 2 launch, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is now available on the Oculus Quest mobile VR platform. Sky dance Interactive today released the Oculus Quest port of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, one of the most highly acclaimed VR games in the horror genre.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is an open-world survival horror game situated in the heart of New Orleans. Players need to scavenge for equipment such as weapons, food, and crafting materials, while they fight for their lives against uncountable numbers of bloodthirsty walkers.
Sky dance Interactive said that The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners features a 15-hour single-player campaign, making it one of the longer games you'll find on the Quest platform. After graduating, Kevin spent ten years working in the IT industry.
Vulcan is the successor to OpenGL, the industry standard graphics API that has been in widespread use for over two decades. OpenGL is similar to DirectX up to version 11, but controlled by an open industry consortium and is cross-platform.
Like DX12 for Windows and Metal for Apple hardware, Vulcan is a “low level” graphics API (LL API). This means that Vulcan could enable Quest developers using Unity to ship more detailed scenes, use larger draw distances, use leftover CPU power for physics, or just increase battery life of existing fidelity content.
When Unity first added Vulcan support for regular Android games, the company claimed “up to 35% improvement” in performance. Unity’s competitor, Unreal Engine, already added support for Vulcan on Quest back in August.
Optimizing a VR game to run on a smartphone processor is incredibly difficult, and most of the work still falls to each developer. But Vulcan support in Unity promises to make the rules slightly less extreme, so we’ll be keeping a close watch on the Quest content ecosystem this year to see what it enables.
Jack McCauley, former Chief Engineer at Oculus, says virtual reality can't offer the long-term engagement of traditional gaming platforms. The company’s sale to Facebook was controversial among its early backers, but gave the project access to a significantly deeper pool of resources, both financially and in terms of developers and marketing muscle.
The company worked with Samsung on their VR product, and released the Oculus Rift, which requires a connection to a PC, in 2016. “If we were going to sell, we would’ve sold,” he told CNBC in a recent interview.
I don’t know what kind of application it would be for VR that would keep players plugged in for six hours like they do with game consoles... You put it on, and there’s a lot of ‘Wow!’ to it, but then what do you do with it? Part of the challenge Oculus faces might be due to its lack of enticing exclusive content.
It’s been rumored that Facebook has lined up Oculus exclusive versions of Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell in an effort to onboard fans of these franchises. For example, cameras in first-person games will follow the motion of the player’s head, but true 360 degree movement generally also uses controllers, which can be unintuitive and jarring.
The VR industry as a whole is still young, but the reported Oculus sales numbers seem to support McCauley’s pessimistic view. That said, Facebook isn't solely a gaming company, and they can afford to support Oculus development even if it isn't an overnight success.
Thanks to the Oculus Quest, high quality, affordable experiences are now far more accessible to the everyday enthusiast and VR newbies alike. The popularity of the headset, twinned with its technological capabilities, has inspired experience creators to fill the Oculus store with a wealth of content.
Set during a fictitious cold-war, this retro-inspired puzzle adventure game challenges you to navigate Saturn’s moons to uncover a top-secret research project. In Red Matter, you play as Agent Epsilon, a super-spy astronaut, and you are equipped with various hi-tech tools to decipher hidden messages and investigate the facility.
In this experience, you are the only human serving alongside a robotic crew on the Fantastic Leap escape craft, everything seems to be going well. Whilst the puzzles in Time Stall are not particularly taxing, it’s fun to see how many ways you can manipulate your environment to avoid disasters.
You find yourself sat in front of a mysterious console with a single red button you’ve been told not to touch. Think of this game as a virtual escape room where you have to look around your space and find clues, tools, and buttons to solve riddles.

Read More am the CEO and Founder of REWIND, an Emmy nominated immersive content studio that fuses bleeding-edge technology with award-winning creative storytelling. The team combines its deep-rooted heritage in VFX and CGI production, with an industry-defining approach to VR, AR, MR and experiential marketing.
Prior to founding REWIND, I was a senior university lecturer for 15 years in digital animation, VFX and emerging technology. This hasn't stopped companies like Oculus, HTC and PlayStation from trying to reach a big audience, though, and a second wave of VR devices seeks to entice buyers with lower prices, simpler hardware and more games.
Newsweek reviewed the Oculus Quest, a bold middle-of-the-road approach to VR that aims to assuage the concerns of casual consumers. “Positional tracking and the Oculus Touch controllers are important for depth of gameplay and a richer experience.
That was a critical anchor for us on the Quest, ” Sean Liu, the Director of Hardware Management at Oculus, tells Newsweek. The Touch controllers allow you to trace out a play space, similar to drawing a chalk outline.
Because it uses the Touch controllers, Oculus Quest games allow you to interact with objects in virtual reality like you would in real life. Once immersed in the games, you'll be swinging a lightsaber in Vader: Immortal or working as a short order cook in a restaurant for robots in Job Simulator.
Phantom: Covert Ops puts players in a “tactical kayak,” solving VR's locomotion issue with innovative gameplay and traditional stealth combat action. The higher the number of units sold, the easier it is to get game developers to create content for your platform.
As a piece of hardware there's little to complain about (though its 2–3-hour battery life could do with some improvement), but on the software side there aren't anywhere near as many games as most consumers are used to. Beat Saber is a heart-racing rhythm game where you slash oncoming musical notes with a pair of lightsabers.
Google Tilt Brush allows you to draw and sculpt 3D objects in a number of serene settings, such as a forest underneath a clear night sky. And Super hot VR is a highly stylized shooting game that syncs the passage of time to your in-game movements, allowing you to dodge bullets Matrix-style.
While games are what's next for VR's immediate future, Liu says Oculus still has plenty to figure out for its long-term vision. Right now there is a minimum amount of distance the light needs to travel inside the headsets for the displays to work, so it's not as simple as shrinking it.
And all of this depends upon a robust audience and large game library driving the sales needed to spur continued investment.
