Modaajat käänsivät Half-Life-pelin VR-formaattiin – video

Mainos
Virtuaalitodellisuuspelejä löytyy PS VR:lle kohtuullisen niukasti, mutta PC-puolella ilakoidaan runsaudessa.

Nyt PC:n VR-hiekkalaatikko on saanut modaajien ansiosta myös klassisen Half-Life-pelin osaksi kattaustaan. Peli on käännetty eritoten Oculus Go -virtuaalikiikareille, mutta myös HTC Vivellä peliä voi pelata maksullista VorpX-sovellusta käyttäen.

VorpX:n kautta pelattaessa ei tarvitse hirveästi kikkailla. Pelin FOV on ainoastaan käännettävä mahdollisimman laajaksi.

Jotta pelin saa toimimaan VR-yhteensopivasti Oculus Go -visiirillä, on pelaajan hieman kikkailtava. Ohessa ohjeet englannin kielellä, pelin VR-kuntoon saattamiseksi:

Installation instructions

Want to get this running on your Go? As QuakeGVR isn’t available on the Oculus Store (likely due to copyright reasons), you’ll need to sideload it.

To learn how to do that, follow our guide: How To Sideload Apps And Games On Oculus Go

Once you know how to sideload:

  1. Download the latest release of QuakeGVR on your PC
  2. Connect your Oculus Go to your PC and use the ADB command to sideload
  3. Launch Quake in the Unknown Sources section of your Oculus Go library. Make sure it works properly, then close it.
  4. Sideload the Amaze File Manager if you do not already have a file manager on your headset.
  5. Download the Half-Life 1 game files from the Oculus Browser in the headset. Alternatively, download them on your PC and then drag it into the Download folder on Go (but the USB transfer may take some time).
  6. Put on your headset and launch the Oculus TV app. Scroll down and open Amaze File Manager.
  7. In the QGVR folder delete the folder called id1
  8. Navigate to the Half Life files zip you downloaded. Click on it and click EXTRACT.
  9. Navigate to the extracted folders. MOVE/CUT the id1 and hlfolders to the QGVR folder (where you deleted the old id1 folder).
  10. COPY progs.dat from the hl1 folder to the id1folder.

When you open QuakeGVR it should now be Half-Life. Note that the menu won’t be different and it may take a very long time to load. But we tried it and it worked, so it should for you too.

DISCLAIMER: Sideloaded apps are by definition not vetted by Oculus. You install them “at your own risk”, as they could affect the security or stability of your headset.
