Oculus Rift users

I am one, I'm sure there are others out there.I have enjoyed what I have played using the rift, I've even found holding a gun quite entertaining as I look through the crosshair by shutting one eye for more accurate shots.

I've been tinkering with some of the settings trying to get it to work with the game. Here is a wiki with the source engine console commands: http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Oculus_Rift_User_Guide

So far as already listed on the forum here setting that make it useable are:

vr_first_person_uses_world_mode 0

My settings so far are:

vr_first_person_uses_world_mode 0

vr_distortion_enable 0 (the warping source does by default looks wonky to me on NMRiH so I disable it)

I am currently playing around with the vr_moveaim_mode as my head has a habbit of going completely 180 from my arms while looking around and moving.

Please post your settings if you are using one with the game, maybe we can all together find settings that make the game even more enjoyable overall for a rift user.

Mods feel free to move or delete this post as I wasn't too sure where it fit on this forum.

What did you do to actually activate VR mode? There are no vr settings in my video tab in my options.

Edit: Ah this is my first source game in the rift so hadn't seen any mention anywhere that I needed to add a launch option. Added -vr, all good

It's not fully functional yet, HUD is a bit off and if you get infected the screen appears to shatter.

Probably the only values for vr_moveaim_mode you'll want to use are 0 or 1 (viewmodel follows head tracking, don't remember which it is) or 3 (viewmodel follows mouse, WASD in direction of mouse, head tracking free look). The others can get a bit disorienting.

One thing that may help is to use TF2's rift calibration and copy the settings over to NMRiH (see http://www.roadtovr.com/how-to-configure-half-life-2-beta-for-your-oculus-rift-gameplay-video/)

I am very curious about getting the oculus rift working, I will have to get mine out and try out some things sometime this weekend.

NMRIH would be 100% more scary with the rift xD.
