I think especially with the Doomguy Visor Mod, this thing could really shine. Anyway, I intend to buy an OR once it's sophisticated enough, and Doom will certainly be my first title to try with it. Good to know it will be ready by the time this happens! ^^

yeah, a hud visor will make the game more inmersive. Also biospud, did you check how did Quake II Oculus Rift? On Quake II you can choose how to aim, looking or aim independently with the mouse. In that way, you also could play adding exotic controller like Razer Hydra.

Yes, I think aiming with the mouse would be cool. But I'll probably prioritize fixing bugs first. I do have a Razer Hydra, and independent aiming is on my list: https://github.com/cmbruns/gzdoom/issues/5

Ah great indeed! So far is working very fine, with only some glitches with floors when going upstairs for example but please take your time :=) To me, the only minor issue is the small hud weapon. Other than that, im enjoying lot of wads (and im really enjoying playing a game with the oculus, more than trying stuff)

I wonder when new wads will be able to take advantage of this :)

Could someone with a Rift please record a video of themselves playing map02 of gravity.wad with the Rift? I can only assume it would be a profound experience.

The glitches you saw on the stairs might be gone in today's new release (1.8.2_c), because I overhauled the height adjustment system. The hud weapon size has been slightly increased too.
Summary of changes in 1.8.2_c:
* Correct crosshair placement at high pitch angles.
* Correct placement of site-down-weapon weapon in Brutal Doom in Rift mode.
* Screenshots in Rift mode work again.
* Weapon is a bit larger than in version 1.8.2_b.
* Weapon position is where it should be (for its size)
* Setting vr_player_height cvar to your personal actual height in meters should make your feet just reach the ground.
* Setting vr_view_yoffset to a value like 5 (map units) makes you taller so you're not so much shorter than the monsters.

It works great now :)

Also, i tried something, instead of playing with 1680x1050 on GzDooM resolution, i changed ingame to 1280x800. And i found something great, at1280x800 i get more rough edges, but the world seems bigger and more close to the size of real world!!!

Edit: Seems this version make some wads to crash. For example, i've tried the Aliens Colonial Marines TC, and crashed with maps e1m1, e1m2 and r1m3. But for example, trying the map savage survival, it works.

Hmm. Sounds like I need to be handling the aspect ratio better in Oculus Rift mode. By the way, I usually play/test in 1920x1080 these days.

Thanks again for the detailed issue report. Are you certain these levels did not crash previous versions of GZ3Doom?

Yeah, sure. The previusly version worked fine, but now crashes. I will attach the crash. Please let me know if i can do something else.

About the resolution, seems more easy to my eye to play with 1280x800, more pleasant, but looks a little worse. But the world seems bigger and more real! Did you try it? I think this is something very hard to explain.

Edit: I renamed gz3doom.exe to gzdoom.exe

I found how to not to crash with the mod. If i start the game on "2d", then load the first map and after that, use vr_mode 8, will work. But, if i run the game with +vr_mode 8 command line, when i choose the first map, crash.

Not related, i've tried gravaty wad, while impressive, i cannot play because lag too much!! :_( i needed to stop to play

there's a major regression in vr_mode 2 (red/cyan anaglyph) in the latest release. The anaglyph no longer works. the views are tilted and don't match up like release B did.

Yes, sorry about that. I've just put up a new release, version 1.8.2_d, with the following changes:
* Fix terrible units bug in frustum shift for all non-Rift 3D modes
* Add Rift view angle prediction with hard-coded latency of 20 ms

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

All users are encouraged to upgrade to the latest version now:

Really? The radiation-suit-causes-green-only-in-right-eye is fixed? I had not yet tried to solve that problem yet. But if it's fixed, that's great!
