It's been a pretty good news day with word out on the street that Second Life has Oculus Rift support planned and Oculus VR just released their updated SDK. All good, right?
We thought we'd take it up a notch. We are hard at work on getting Far Cry 3 working with the Open Source Vireio Perception drivers. The updated build isn't available for download yet, and the profile is definitely a work in progress, but we are getting closer with new ideas on making the drivers better and easier to use for fellow Rifters on more games with better compatibility.
Long overdue, Dynamic Digital Depth has released TriDef 3D 5.8 featuring new game profiles for BioShock Infinite, Crysis 3, Tomb Raider 2013, Planets Under Attack, World of Warplanes, Scania Truck Driving Simulator, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Race Injection, LEGO Lord of the Rings and more. The driver release also promises improved support for Assassin's Creed III, Batman: Arkham City, StarCraft 2, Google Earth and League of Legends.
In all cases, be sure to submit your results to GameGrade3D!
