The VorpX Beta 3D Driver for Oculus Rift is Now Available

October 1st, 2013 · 2 Comments · 3D / AR / VR / HMD


Finally we are going to see something from the vorpX 3D driver intended for providing Oculus Rfit support for games that do are not made to be used with the Rift – this means stereoscopic 3D rendering as well as headtracking mapping to the game controls. There was just an announcement that a VorpX Beta has been released an it is available for purchase for ~40$ + taxes with a time-limited demo version that is supposed to be made available in a few weeks for people that want to try before they buy the software. According to the developer of the software the vorpX beta is already compatible with about 80 DX9-DX11 games including support for games like Skyrim, Crysis, COD: Modern Warfare 3, Fallout 3 and many, many more. This license for the beta release includes free updates until (but not including) a future version 2.0 of the software and you are allowed to install the software on two machines at the same time.

I have not yet personally tested the software, but I do plan on buying a license for the VorpX Beta 3D driver to try it out, so I’ll be sharing more information and personal experience with it as soon as I’m able to test it for a bit, so stay tuned for more…

Meanwhile for more information about the VorpX Beta 3D Driver…

    I own it. Its depth buffer modes are top notch and probably better then tridef in the games I’ve tested. Geometry modes are comparable to tridef in supported games though of course much less support then tridef. Of course Tridef turns off effects that are broken while it will leave it in.
    If your expecting helixmod/3d vision ready you will be dissapointed but as far as oculus methods I recommend it if you got money. Its a bit pricey though when you figure tridef + vorpx.
    TBH, I own both as an enthusiast but I’ve never really played a game on either that I was “amazed” with. It might be different if I wasnt a 3d vision user and was a “rift user”. Will have to see though, its only beta and hasnt had much time to mature.
