Oculus Rift support?

Post by rumford » Mon Jan 05, 2015 8:28 pm

I noticed that this page http://theriftlist.com/Home/Game?name=Descent%20II claims Descent II can support the Oculus Rift but I don't know whether I can trust it, or if that necessarily means DXX-Reborn supports it. Does anyone have any information on this?

As of v1.17.0, D2X-XL supports it: [link]

As far as I know, D2X-Rebirth does not.

That is correct. A few people have asked for it but it hasn't made it into the game.
I'm told (by someone who actually has a Rift; I'm holding out for the official release) that D2X-XL only supports devkit 1, and doesn't work with the current one. It's a little unfortunate but I don't blame Diedel for not wanting to pay up for yet more pre-release hardware for a project that he doesn't make money from.

That's where crowd-funding comes in!
