How to Use VR Boost Scanner With Far Cry 3

Using the VR Boost scanner is very important for Far Cry 3, and it won't work properly unless you follow the instructions on the screen.  The above video is a good demo of how to get VR Boost running, and will likely save you a lot of frustration.

Vireio Perception 2.06 Nightly Released!

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
This isn't a MAJOR release, but it fixes some important bugs.  In particular, the memory leak that was happening with Skyrim.  Work was also done to make the Time Warp feature more effective.  It's all detailed in the file download.

Have fun!

Vireio 2.0.5 Alpha 1 is OUT!

Vireio Perception 2.0.5 Alpha 1
This is a REALLY cool update for Oculus Rift DK2 users.  One of the big tradeoffs with the Oculus Rift DK2 is it's not really possible to clone your display.  You have to run in extended mode and somehow get your game to the right panel, or just run one display at a time and painfully point your eyes in the Rift to find where your cursor is.  Euch!

The latest nightly build lets you run your computer in extended mode, and after selecting the destination display, the drivers will automatically get your game to display on your HMD without requiring you to turn your main monitor off.  It's best to try and get your HMD and display to run at 75Hz.

Another experimental feature is Timewarp rendering which is a predictive technique for headtracking.  You will get snappier performance in most games, but this can be turned off as well.

Finally, we added a Chromatic Abberation fix for DK2 users that can be toggled on and off.  Have fun!
