MTBS' VR Settings Guide

Introduction

Now that the Oculus Rift kits are getting in game developers'...and let's face it...gamers' hands, there is a serious concern to be aware of. With a stereoscopic 3D display like a TV or monitor, it's very easy to see the left and right perspective at the same time and quickly make adjustments so your S-3D gaming experience is a comfortable one. Unfortunately, we don't yet have the ability to do the same thing with a Head Mounted Display like the Oculus Rift. We can see some interactions that are cloned on our computer display, but it doesn't really tell us anything useful.

This is a serious issue because if the settings are wrong, the gaming experience will not only be unfulfilling, it will be needlessly painful.

Vireio Perception Logo

While many game developers are planning dedicated VR support, a lot of consumers are enjoying immersive games today with the open source Vireio Perception drivers.  Unlike a dedicated VR game, drivers can run by the seat of their pants, and gamers really need at least some understanding of how 3D works so they can comfortably play their games and get the best results.

This step by step guide will tell you everything you need to know to get your games running with stereoscopic 3D drivers in the most comfortable and effective manner possible. While it won't solve problems like game or driver bugs, we think this will enhance your VR experience immeasurably.

These techniques only apply to drivers that use true left and right camera stereoscopic 3D rendering (e.g. The Vereio Perception drivers). 2D+Depth or 3D rendering based on a single camera view isn't the same type of 3D, and we don't know if these recommendations will be applicable.
