Rift S Controller Support

Post by Balloon » Tue, 31. Dec 19, 00:50

I've tried to get this going on a Rift S, but the controllers don't seem to be supported. I've tried both SteamVR and Occulus modes. The visuals work (and are STUNNING!).

Are there ary plans to support the Rift S controllers?

There was this thread too but without any replies.

Thanks Alan. I've seen a few pages referring to problems, but nobody seems to have cracked it.

I nw see that it's been 2+ years since the last update to this game, so I guess it's not being maintained any more. If so, Official support for Rift S won't happen. :(

Don't give up all hope though. It is still possible that some improvements discovered or made in X4 Foundations accessibility and control could be back-ported to X Rebirth VR if it is practical, sensible and fairly easy to do so. They both use much the same game engine along with Vulkan.

Ta again. I'm certainly going to keep an eye out! It would be a fairly straightforward set of changes, just involving controller input mappings. The slowest part would be new graphics and documentation — and we could live without those.

XRVR is really in a niche of its own since X4 doesn't do VR.

I note that the Oculus store explicitly lists XRVR has having Rift S support, but the user feedback says otherwise. Compatibility was probably automatically assigned assuming that all Rift products would work in Rift S. This is unfortunate, because it means XRVR is getting bad reviews that it doesn't deserve.

Oculus Rift S support

Post by skpnsf » Sun, 9. Feb 20, 09:08

Simple question. I just installed X Rebirth VR through Steam. I attempted the play the game using the Oculus Rift S. The controllers don't work in Steam VR Mode or Oculus VR mode. Does the game work on the Rift S?

I'll move the post above to the correct forum (from X4) and merge it with the correct thread.

If by any chance you were asking about X4 and the Rift S then that game does not currently support VR.
