VorpX is not updated too often, but when it does it usually includes significant changes. The next version will include a virtual giant screen mode that will be compatible with almost everything.
The most important change is the integration of a 3D engine with renderers for the three supported APIs, so that it will work with all D3D9, 10 and 11 games that VorpX is capable of intercepting, whether or not they are games supported in virtual reality. This mode will replace the current Edge Peek functionality, which allowed using head tracking to see the corners of the screen, with which actions such as watching cinematic scenes or using inventory will be much better.
Another of the functions of the new 3D engine is the inclusion of a virtual cinema mode, similar to Virtual Desktop, which will allow you to run a large number of games that currently do not have support in virtual reality, such as third-person role-playing games, sports games, strategy, side scrolling and the like. The difference with respect to Virtual Desktop is that, at the moment, it is only compatible with games that support window or full window mode, while VorpX should be able to run games that work in full screen, we will see to what extent it works with many titles.
The Virtual Cinema mode will include deferred lighting, so that the ambient light of the room will change depending on the game scene, similar to AmBX mode, or Ambilight as it is known on televisions. According to Ralf, the performance penalty will be minimal, since the virtual cinema scene has a very low polygonal load and the lighting is pre-calculated, changing only the tonality depending on what we see on the screen.
In addition to the virtual cinema, VorpX will offer another mode called Ambient Scene for those who do not want distractions. In this mode there is no room, and the screen floats before us while the background lights up dynamically depending on the content of the game. And of course, there will be bug fixes and new games supported in this new version that, at the moment, has no release date.
