I live in Australia. I went to my local retailer, and no place in South Australia has them in stock. They have to order it from HTC overseas, and it will take 2 weeks because Australia is.. well Australia.

Fat luck getting anything in Aus that isn't hi-vis clothing or iPhones with 300% tax :P

FYI, Oculus Quest was just announced. All in one headset with 2 controllers and inside out tracking. No pc, no wires, no phones. $399, spring 2019.

I would love to see Doom for it. Unfortunately gzDoom team don't have much interest as VR and they said they don't have the hardware. If anyone could set up a kind of "fund me" campaign, i would definitely participate.

On the other hand, yesterday was released Quake 1 for Daydream with decoupled aiming.

Now that the index controllers are out, will this be updated to support the index controllers. As it stands this is borderline unplayable with the index controllers.

How can I contact the guy behind this project to request him to update it?

Don't think that'd work, but I feel your pain, I'd love to see a release that uses a more recent version of GZDoom, the incompatibility with a version as old as what's used here is painful, there's a lot of cool stuff I want to play in VR doom that isn't compatable.

I know this is a massive bump, but i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong. I see it on my screen (VR_mode 10), but instead of showing in my headset it shows on the screen only (in split view which responds to my headset so i know it works partially)

Hi, perhaps the latest version would work better for you: https://github.com/hh79/gz3doom/releases

Hello! I'm sorry for bumping this thread.
Unfortunatelly I don't have Vive or a PC cabled headset, but I've noticed GZDoom/GZDoomVR has several vr_mode settings.
So I thought I could just stream PC screen to a smartphone and use GearVR headset to play.
vr_mode 3 seems to be just what I was looking for, but it misses those quad black outside frames to adjust the eyes. I wonder how could I set these on? What is the name of the setting? Does it require an additional library?
I understand it's a fake VR, more like 3D without roll or pitch, but I'm just curious.
I wonder if somebody could help me with this one O-)

P.S. I've found this screenshot of my map from 2016 when GZ3Doom was around, with black frames. But I didn't have anything like a headset back then..


UPD. oh well struggling for some time, I managed to run it using 3rd party steamvr to android plugin and wifi dongle. It's 3dof (controller is 6dof though?), however without cables and heavy headset, with a decent signal efficency. I'm kinda glad I didn't have to buy a high-end headset/controllers to quench my thirst in VR Doom :3:
