Oculus Rift Support? Would be Amazing

Postby Thorvald » 12 Apr 2015 14:37

Any chance of adding Oculus Rift support in future?

I've been using my DK2 unit with Elite Dangerous for months now and simply won't go back to a monitor, the immersion and 3D effect are that good (resolution isn't super high yet but it would be fine for Heli-X until the released version).

EDIT: I see some people have Java with the Rift:

JOVR – JAVA BINDINGS FOR OCULUS RIFT SDK 0.4.2.0

Thanks

Are you a programmer?

You could try it with the jmonkeyengine, this is, what is used in HELI-X.

i'm also interested in Oculus Rift support. Checked out a few libraries and there is one that has recent updates for the DK2. I've exported it here into GitHub for familiarity: https://github.com/joelsweb/jmonkeyengine-oculus-rift

Looks like the setup is straightforward as there is a class OVHApplication that extends the JME SimpleApplication. Most of the time will be spent reworking the GUI, although a simple preconfigured scene should be possible as a proof of concept.
