Vireio Perception 3.0.0 Alpha 2 is OUT!

Vireio Perception Logo
With the previous alpha release of Vireio Perception, we introduced asynchronous timewarp and reinvigorated DirectX 9 support.  We say reinvigorated because it was touch and go there for awhile!

Miracle worker Simon Brown (Dr. Beef) discovered that individual games have certain timing idiosyncrasies that was adding jutter to the experience and creating a left eye / right eye desyncronization.  To compensate for this, we have added a game by game timing adjustment that can be found in the "Overall Settings" menu.  A setting of 0 has not waiting period and is most likely going to exhibit the described problems.  A setting of 20 will be smooth, but introduce latency.  A setting between 3-8 should work well depending on your machine.

Provided your computer can deliver a frame rate in the high 30s, you should be able to achieve a judder-free experience.  Please report your findings!

The VR Boost scanner for Bioshock 2 has also been fixed.  More to come!

Vireio Perception 3.0.0 Alpha Released

Vireio 3.0.0 Alpha
Yes, we know it took longer than expected, but Vireio Perception is always worth waiting for!  We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Vireio Perception 3.0.0 Alpha.

Vireio Perception users would be horrified if they ever learned how close we came to having to scrap the whole project.  As a consequence of moving with the times, the Oculus Rift 0.6.X SDK removed much of the architecture needed for Vireio to effectively support DirectX 9 games.  We seriously thought we were done for.  It's with thanks to a lucky find and some sharp programming that Simon Brown was able to reinvigorate our future prospects by using DirectX 9Ex which was introduced with Windows Vista.  Yes, without Vista, Vireio could very well have been done for!

Vireio Perception 2.1.6 is OUT!

The Vireio Perception team has done it again!

New VR Comfort Mode (Homefront)

Here are the key enhancements:
  • Improved Memory Scanner - Now uses multithread approach for quicker scanning.
  • Games will not start in Vr mode if the Vireio Perception Dialog is not open. Easier for playing normally without having to uninstall Symlinks / DLLs
  • Comfort Mode Added - As originally sugested by Cloudhead Games
  • Saints Row 2 Support
  • Saints Row 3 Support
  • Homefront Support
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution Support
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution Directors Cut Support - Please note if you have a choice we strongly recommend using the above version NOT the Directors Cut. The original is far better from a VR support standpoint.
  • Improved scanner compatibility in a few existing games (Outlast / Crysis / Far Cry 3 / etc)
  • Ability to Supress Vireio Hotkeys
  • PDF of Hotkeys reinstated to VP folder
  • VR Mouse - New implementation and look (Double Click NUMPAD 0 to toggle)
  • New Disconnected Screen View Implementation - Previous version had issue with cropping. New one should look better and fuller.
  • Sped up the Menu system - Should be now much more responsive

Vireio Perception 2.1.4 released

Vireio Perception 2.1.4

*

Smaller quicker release as we wanted to get some cool games and features into your hands. In this release:

  • Outlast Full Support for 64 bit (VR Boost Profile created)
  • Far Cry Full Support
  • The Old City: Leviathan Full Support (really cool indie game - we highly recommend you try out). 
  • Duck and Cover functionality as suggested by (http://www.reddit.com/u/Oculusriftrocks) - Positional based system that emulates crouch button presses dependant on the player height. Works with crouch, prone and jump settings. Recommended for players that like to stand up. See the Vireio Perception manual for full details. 
  • Tweaks / Fixes to existing scanners


Work is continuing and we are hoping to put together some videos showing how to get the best from VP. We have seen good work from our users. Here is a great channel from Immersive Gamer 83 (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCh_2BINiElrtu95ZILitm4Q) with lots of videos of the latest titles running in VP / Rift. If you have a channel showing VP working please let us know and we would be happy to promote it. 

We would also like to thank all those who generously donated to the project. All of us are humbled by your support and gives us the freedom to look at suggested games quicker and strive towards making the best injection driver possible. If you would like more details on how to donate to the project please read the section in the intruction manual. 

We are working towards version 2.2.0 at the moment and hoping to bring some more cool features. One area we would really like to crack is creating a smooth VR experience for those that cannot reach the sometimes demanding 75fps in some games (looking at you Skyrim). We have had some very positive tests and looking to polish for the release. Game wise, we keep a list of suggestions we have had in the instruction manual so please continue to let us know of games you think would work well in VR. Homefront is next on my list and already looking good.
