For those unfamiliar, the Virtuix Omni is an upcoming VR treadmill that lets you walk, run and jump in your favorite games. It's just another little bit of VR history that first got revealed here on MTBS! ;=)
"We are pleased to announce that we have got castAR integrated into Vireio Perception 2.x drivers. This will provide you with a great library of games working with VR to run on your castAR! Skyrim looks incredible with these drivers!" - Rick Johnson, Co-Founder of Technical Illusions
Earlier build; Skyrim looks and performs even BETTER now!
Great news for castAR backers! Technical Illusions have added castAR support to the upcoming open source Vireio Perception 2.0 drivers! For those unfamiliar, Vireio Perception is a free software package that lets you take existing games and play them in VR with head tracking and stereoscopic 3D functionality. The first public build of 2.0 will be out on November 28th, and we have every confidence that fellow VR gamers are going to love them. castAR has added both visual and head tracking support to Vireio Perception.
Yes! We are still alive and kicking. The MTBS team has been hard at work on version 2.0 of the Vireio Perception drivers, and we expect to have a new video for tomorrow. Would you believe we found a game that uses no less than 1,700 shaders?!?!? YES! 1,700 unique shaders. To put this in perspective, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim only has a whopping 450 shaders.
Curious to know which game required us to write new HUD resizing code and has driven our developers to near insanity (NEAR?!? HAH! Complete loons, I tell you!)? You will find out soon!
