P3D and Oculus Rift

Recommended Posts

It doesn't work with the current oculus runtime. Looks like it was compiled with the older one in mind which is a shame because it has been known that oculus will stop supporting the older one for ages now. If you try and run prepar3d with a rift turned on you get an error saying prepar3d is not compatible. I was looking forward to trying the built in support aswell.

Someone use Oculus Rift whit P3d?

What do you think? :wink:


P3D runs fine with 0.6 runtimes using FlyInside software.

The new 0.7 got rid of extended mode..which is actually a step in the right direction because it is what the Rift is suppose to be.

Extended mode is pretty much just a quick cheat for devs.

Now the fire has been set under software devs butts to actually make  direct mode compatible software.
