A new version of Vireio arrives, the first alpha of 2.0.5 and brings quite juicy news, not in terms of new games but in terms of features: Timewarp support to improve headtracking, possibility of launching games without establishing the Oculus Rift as the main monitor and chromatic aberration correction in the DK2.
You can download this new version, as always, from mtbs3d. The choice of the screen is now made from the Vireio main menu, where we can directly choose the DK2. As they say, the ideal is to have the main monitor at 75 Hz as in the DK2, although using very low resolutions such as 1152×864, but it can also work as is, without touching anything. What does work perfectly in any case is the chromatic aberration correction, now the image quality has gone up a lot, it is especially noticeable in Skyrim when reading the texts. On the other hand, the Timewarp for headtracking can be activated and deactivated by pressing Shift + Del (it is activated by default) and it also makes the response to headtracking much faster, we have tested it in Skyrim and the difference is noticeable.
Remember that since the previous version, Vireio has a notification system, including a message every time we start the games, similar to the Oculus security, and also messages every time we activate and deactivate functions. It seems that this can cause problems on AMD Radeon cards, so notifications can be disabled by editing the config file.xml from the cfg folder. We will have to put notifications=”0″.
