VR Support
« on: August 28, 2017, 12:37:07 PM »
When installing GP Bikes a desktop shortcut named "GP Bikes - VR" should be created.
It launches GPB with the "-vr" command line switch, that enables VR support.

If both a Rift and a Vive are installed on the same PC, it's possible to force Oculus using the "-vro" switch, and SteamVR using "-vrs".

In GP Bikes -> Settings -> Input3 it's possible to set the control to reset the VR camera tracking. The default key is F8. It resets the position and rotation of the user interface virtual screen, too.

By default, the rendering of both eyes is mirrored to the GPB window.
It is possible to change the mirroring setting creating a text file called oculus.ini or openvr.ini in the GPB installation folder and adding the following lines:
Code: [Select]
[mirror]
eye = 2
The possible values are:
-1: mirroring disabled
0: left eye
1: right eye
2: both eyes

Note: If the Windows Taskbar overlaps the MXB window preventing the cursor from reaching the bottom of the user interface, please try right clicking on the shortcut icon and, in the Properties, selecting Run Maximised.


Known Bugs
- HTC Vive ( SteamVR ): transparent asphalt in the user interface

I can't get Oculus Rift to run on beta 12.... What settings do I need to activate in GP Bikes?

Is there a guide?

Nothing to change in game settings, just make a VR shortcut as per the instructions  above.

There should already be a VR shortcut automatically created on the desktop and in the Windows start menu.

Good to know, didn't see this as I stop the installer making any new shortcuts.

Okay. So the problem was not having net 3.5 installed after a clean windows installation.  All good now. Thanks
