  1. I came across this video the other day, posted on Ars Technica. He talks about when they developed Thief: The Dark Project.
  2. The performance was good, it ran perfectly smoothly with 4x antialiasing and 8x anisotropy (1080Ti, i7-7700k). I also tried 8x AA, but it started to jitter.
  3. I played through the Smiling Cutpurse on the vive yesterday. Looks great and runs so much better than the vorpx hack. A few shadows out of sync between eyes, but 99% of it looked perfect. You definitely need to lock-out the vertical mouse. I think that would be most important to make it comfortable to play while it's still seated mouse/keyboard.
  4. I haven't checked TDM in a while. Exciting work being done here, I look forward to testing it out.
  5. Well I just updated to the new vorpx version, which now allows gamma adjustment and got it working again after some messing about. I uploaded my new vorpx profile for TDM if it is of use to anyone. The game is playable on the vive now, but tbh after playing proper made for vr games the past few months, I find it difficult to go back to using this vorpx hack. The experience is really sub-par compared to what is possible with native vr support. I will return to playing TDM on a flat screen as it was designed. Cheers and have a Happy New Year!
  6. Sorry to hear that Bucklebean, I hope your family is doing well. That's awesome you have both rift and vive. I ended up cancelling my rift order and spent the money on a 980Ti instead, but I still wish I had both for testing purposes. I haven't tried TDM since I posted that; actually I haven't played any seated games at all. I'm having too much fund with the roomscale stuff - love those vive controllers. The 2D fov adjuster is interesting. I hadn't played with that much, not sure what it did. Performance is identical to the DK2. Smooth when looking around (due to vorpX fluidsync I guess), but you can see the rest of the game is running at a lower framerate. For the brightness, I'm hoping Reshade updates to support direct mode. Alternatively, if you run vive in extended mode you can adjust the brighness/contrast, but I was having trouble getting vorpX to work properly. Editing a mission to change values should work, that's a good idea Demagogue. I wish I could find the time, I haven't even learned to use DarkRadiant yet. I have too many interests to focus on one thing long enough.
  7. One other thing... there is no way to adjust the brightness and contrast and the stock levels are too bright. Its a shame as it hurts the game ambience.
  8. Now working on the HTC-Vive! I uploaded my vorpX profile if any one wants it (I think it will change your xbox mapping as well though, so be warned). It looks good, much cleaner than DK2. Like before, you need to set a custom resolution in Nvidia. I used 1350x1500 @ 60Hz. It doesn't need to be active, just present for the game to see it. Edit the Darkmod.cfg and change these lines to fix the resolution and screen ratio: seta r_customHeight "1500"seta r_customWidth "1350"seta r_fovRatio "0.9" In the vorpX settings I used: Geometry modeSeparation (3d strength) 0.45 (works for my 58 mm ipd)Letterbox1Zoom 0.92 The left and right screen edges are very slightly cropped. If you turn off the vorpX ambience in edge peek, the cropped edges will be black so it is not noticeable. I tried higher zoom levels to fill the screen, but it causes distortion. Actually, I tried a myriad of resolutions, screen ratios and zoom levels and this was the best I could get it.
  9. and Ralf fixed it and published the update before I could even try this. Amazing.
  10. That's brilliant! I'll try it after work.
  11. A new vorpX version out that supports CV1 (consumer oculus rift). Unfortunately it has broken TDM implementation. Hopefully this is temporary. When launching the game, the screen is just a series of horizontal lines. I can hear it running though. Have you tried it BuckleBean? [edit] Ralf from vorpX thinks its an OpenGL thing - he's going to try to fix it tomorrow.
  12. btw I'm replaying "Tears of St. Lucia" and I just noticed that the skybox displays properly. I assume it is using a different asset as there is no moon.
  13. Excellent, I didn't know that about the doors or the head bob! I'll definitely turn that off. Many thanks.
  14. I might just have a higher tolerance to the framerates than you. Most of the time they are "just good enough" and can vary a lot depending on location. I was just out in the rain (3rd mission of NHAT) and it was a juddery hell - it was great to get inside the mansion!
  15. It must be - it's not in the original clip. Strange.
