New VorpX Feature Makes non-VR Games Look and Play Better in VR

Latest news

    VorpX is a 3D driver which allows users to play their non-VR game library immersively through an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive headset. Version 17.3.0 brings a new ‘Direct VR Settings Optimizer’ feature which automatically tweaks many titles for optimal VR performance.

    While there’s many awesome made-for-VR games now on the market, VR has a tendency to spoil us with its immersion, and make us yearn to be able to step inside of our favorite non-VR games too. While games built from the ground-up for VR are always going to yield the best VR experience, VorpX is a longstanding option that adapts DirectX 9, 10, and 11 games for playing through a VR headset, giving players an immersive taste of their non-VR game library.

    VorpX, which first became available back in the days of the Rift development kits—and now supports the Rift CV1 and Vive—has been updated to version 17.3.0 which makes it easier to dial in each game’s settings for ideal immersion and performance in VR.

    The ‘Direct VR Settings Optimizer’, as it’s called, offers one-click configuration for a range of game-specific settings, including FOV and resolution. 90+ games are said to support the automatic optimizations, and have seen improved and expanded settings profiles to take advantage of the new feature. The Optimizer can also undo the adjustments with just a click, for when you want to switch back to your non-VR settings.

    For games that support it, the Optimizer can achieve “perfect FOV,” according to its creator, and smartly adjusts game resolutions to a square aspect ratio to better fit the displays of each VR headset and reduce unnecessary rendering.

    VorpX 17.3.0 also brings a new ‘Immersive Screen Mode’, a preset for the Cinema Mode which displays games on a virtual monitor that’s been dialed in for maximum immersion (size and distance from the screen). The creator says this mode is ideal for third-person games and those which lack variable FOV.

    VorpX boasts varying levels of support for more than 200 games, with new profiles just added for major titles like Battlefield 1, Star Wars: Battlefront IIHellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and more. See this list for compatibility details.
