This game actually works with Oculus Rift

I dusted off the Oculus Rift and bought an extension called Vorpx. Set it all up and the game actually works with the Rift.

It is brilliant in every way possible and also bloody terrifying lol. I've tried out inf, tank and flying with it. It's really immersive, there's nothing like a German soldier running up the stairs and scaring the ever living **** out of you, things feel much more lifelike. Flying is surreal (can be a vomit comet if not careful) and it's incredible being able to just turn your head and look out the cockpit and track enemy planes. Tanking, again, adds so much to the realism of things - being cramped into a metal can makes you be a bit more selective with your shots to make them count.

I don't think I'll be replacing my screen any time soon but it's a bit of fun.

Can you take a video and provide a URL for that dongle you purchased?

Vorpx looks to be a 3rd party driver for Oculus Rift  https://www.vorpx.com/

Some game action vid would be awesome!

A word of warning - anyone who has an oculus or similar, DO NOT do this on the live server as it will drop the ban hammer on you - the games doesn't like 3rd party drivers but that's what keeps the cheaters away.

I'll work up a video as best  as I can next week and post it here - it'll have to be done on the offline mode. It won't give the real effect which, after playing it again offline yesterday, is just incredible. It's indescribable how immersive it is.

Who knows - maybe one day in the future we'll see Oculus support for the game *cough cough* hint hint * @XOOM * lol
