you welcome in The road to virtual reality The first “Monthly Virtual Reality Mod”, a series of articles to keep you updated about all the exciting things that are happening in the wonderful world of the Flat2VR Modding community!
What is the Flat2vr Modding Community and Why Should You Care?
We are an enthusiastic community of mods bringing our favorite games rich on flat screens (often with thousands of hours of content) in 6DOF VR. We love games built from the ground up for VR, but we feel there is also a lot of potential in existing games that can be played in VR. As virtual reality continues to grow, we believe there is a need for both new games and ports. Some of the games we’ve moved have been made by thousands of developers over many years, and VR simply isn’t in a place where games of this size haven’t been built exclusively for VR.
One of our goals is to experience, discover and share best practices for bringing flat games to life in VR so that more game developers are tempted to create official VR ports for their games and that their “path to VR” will not only be easier but lead to better results. Immediately, we hope that the thousands of hours that have been devoted to creating VR mods will provide the VR community with options to experience their favorite games in new, magical, immersive ways that only VR can do, and that their love and passion for the medium will continue to grow in VR as a whole.
If you’re not sure where to start in the wonderful world of Flat2VR mods, our friend Beardo Benjo has prepared a great and very personal list of his favorite VR mods here that we recommend to watch!
VR Modding Monthly – Sep 2022
The past month has been full of tweaks, so let’s get started and look into it some For what’s happening in the Flat2VR community lately!
Official VR Port | chest
Last month, Incuvo (Flat2VR carrier) released a PCVR version of Green Hill VR And I personally enjoyed it! The port had some jagged edges at launch, but the Incuvo has been releasing a steady stream of updates and it’s shaping up to be my favorite gameplay by far. green hell. Being alone in this wonderful and massive open world with you and only your wits can lead to intense and unique levels of immersion, making you almost forget you’re not there.
I’m particularly impressed with how they were able to release a version of the game for Oculus Quest 2 with the help of AppSW (Application Space Warp) – a way to render the game at half the frame rate and then use a smart interpolation algorithm to shape the interframes (not to be confused with the simpler version of similar technology to PCVR). and ASW).
It also appears to be a commercial success; The game was in List of the best-selling Quest games since launch. We’re excited to see more and more official Flat2VR ports like this one achieve success (hopefully encourage more game developers to follow suit).
(About this from the official Flat2VR outlets, Raicuparta [a modder in our community] Townscraper VR port made simple about a year ago, showed it to the developer and encouraged them to create The official VR port is coming to Quest soon!)

Phenomenal dry humor and fun from Stanley Parabelle Ultra Deluxe You can now be experienced in virtual reality thanks to the hard work of Raicuparta (creator Outer PrairieAnd the fire controland other great VR mods).
He has done an amazing job of offering us the perfect way to play this classic game in 6DOF VR complete with motion controls. The VR mod is in beta, but it’s already quite polished and you’ll have no problem beating the game from start to finish.
Modified VR Port | almost
half life 2 It is a game that VR enthusiasts have been eager to play in VR complete with motion controls for years now. For nearly 10 years now, VR has been modified for HL2 Development started, but the project eventually ended after the lead developer got busy with a new job at Rockstar.
Many thought the mod would never see the light of day, but just last year the talented Cabalistic designer picked the project back up and was pouring thousands of hours into it. His work with Wormslayer and the rest of the Source VR team has now made what we feel is the perfect way to play HL2.
Fans who have been following the mod since its inception may have wondered if this day would ever come with the rocky road, but the mod now has a release date! Half-Life 2: VR Mod It will be released September 16!
Half-life: Alex Prove how great Half-Life can be in VR and we’re very excited to finally bring this classic to the VR community soon too! Half-Life 2: VR Mod It is one of the most polished VR mods ever made with the ability to pick up just about anything, manually reload weapons, a massive amount of convenience options, etc., and it’s launching directly on Steam with Valve’s blessing!

After Luke Ross got us hooked FromSoftware’s elden ring VR modreleased a follow-up mod for one of their previous games, Dark Souls: Remastered. One of the main differences in Dark Souls: Remastered VR mod is that it is an old game and can be played more easily at 90 or 120Hz which makes it a great VR experience (this is very important when looking at whether or not VR mode is right for you).
The mod itself is a great way to experience the Lordran kingdom in virtual reality. There are no motion controls, but you can switch between multiple third-person perspectives or a new first-person perspective, which is great for just enjoying the world and feeling like you’re there in full 6DOF VR. You can also toggle Tourist Mode which makes you invisible to enemies if you just want to roam around the world and take it all in.
One of my favorite options and ways to play is to use the mod’s global slider so that you feel like a god controlling a figurine in a castle doll below you. It feels like playing a lot moss or demio This way it gives you great insight to be able to execute all those last minute dodges and attacks required to survive in the often unforgiving game of Dark Souls.

Final Fantasy VII Remake It is another cool mod released this week by Luke Ross. The mod is a little easier to reach at higher frame rates than some of the previous mods (important, RDR2 VR). The game is absolutely amazing and makes 40 to 100 hours of content an enjoyable experience in virtual reality.
If you’re new to VR and don’t have strong “VR legs” yet, I’d recommend this mod more to see and experience some of your favorite areas of the game in VR rather than playing through the whole game in it. I personally have no problem with that, but I imagine the quick combat might be especially difficult for some players.
The model features many options to customize your experience including camera distance control, slow motion mode to experience epic battles in virtual reality, and more.
Universal 3D Stereo Injector | chest
3DVision was part of the Nvidia GPU Drivers that added Stereoscopic 3D (the two cameras/points of view required for 3D gaming). It was only officially successful in a few games, and it was officially used primarily for 3D monitors and TVs (although could It can be hacked to be played on VR headsets as well).
The mod community regularly spends thousands of hours tweaking support for other games unofficially, sometimes fixing hundreds of shaders to work properly for holographic. It was a fairly big blow to society when Nvidia discontinued 3DVvision last year (It looked like many years of work were about to go down the drain.) Since 3DVision was discontinued, Bo3b and other key members of the community have worked hard at reverse engineering parts of DirectX 11 to create a 3DVision replacement solution, completely free of anything Nvidia related. After thousands of hours of work, they finally revealed their free and open source injector Jio 11!
How does that relate to mods VR or Flat2VR at all?
Geo 11 by itself won’t “automatically teleport any game into full virtual reality,” but it does let you play many of your favorite games on an IMAX-sized curved screen in front of you in gorgeous, out-of-the-box 3D. It can still be an incredibly immersive experience in a VR headset (and some third-person games like Little nightmares Feels like an original VR game.)
But for full 6DOF VR, this is what depositors can do an act With Geo 11 this is particularly exciting. Since Geo 11 is open source, a full VR mod can be created with it as a framework and can save us some time with game engines that don’t already have native VR. If Luke Ross is going to use Geo 11 to create a VR mod for example, it might save him some time and allow him to create a VR port without using Alternate-eye Rendering (which could have drawbacks unless you can run the game on high enough framerates). Many Geo 11 games already have fixes for issues that sometimes appear in Luke’s mods that deal with time effects like TAA.
Addition of the official VR port | chest
This classic Bethesda game received an official port a few years ago, but the VR experience was somewhat lacking on its own. However, the VR mod community has stepped up and enhanced almost every aspect of the way VR works in the game. Skyrim VR Modifications improve the experience to the point that you may go wrong Skyrim for Blade and magic Now unless you look closely.
Last year, the HIGGS mod allowed us to pick up and use anything in the game Half-life: Alex– Like sword-grabbing gestures, hold swords with both hands, and gain all kinds of amazing ways to interact with the world. Recently, this level of interaction has been further improved with PLANCK (which stands for Physical Animation and Character Animation).
PLANCK lets you physically wrestle with enemies, push them back, hit them, and more. If you are not sure where to start optimizing a file Skyrim VR Mostly community experience One-click mod pack installers It automatically installs the best VR mods. Plus, if you’re already tired SkyrimYou can also play the entire game Inderal: Forgotten Stories (Skyrim full campaign) in VR also with these mods and also must play experience (check out Mod Pack for Enderal).

Speaking of Bethesda games, Fallout 4 VR It was also officially released again at Will and a similar VR overhaul was obtained from the community. In addition to the full VRIK, one of the things modder rollingrock has recently added is the two-hand support of the gun. Few things look worse than shooting a long sniper rifle with one hand in VR. This mode goes a long way in improving the experience with a lot of gun handling FO4 VR.
