GTA: Vive Alpha 0.1 Release


Hey guys, I'm releasing an early build of GTA: Vive! Check it out.

My Vive kit is broken, but I don't want to let this sit around for too long without releasing something. I usually like to finish things before I release them, but I can't right now.

I've been trying to get an RMA via E-Mail for over two weeks, and I just recently got a shipping notice. Not sure how much it's going to cost, either. So, I'm just dropping it here, as is, unchanged from the last alpha I sent out a month ago to a few secret users.

Stereo is disabled because of gut wrenching artifacts and performance issues. I believe both are solvable. Only four weapons are implemented (unanimated). I wish I could work on this more, but I'm not in a position to. Need to focus on finding a new job and some other projects, not to mention the broken Vive!

Installation instructions:

  1. Install ScriptHookV: http://www.dev-c.com/gtav/scripthookv/
  2. Download gta_vive_alpha12.zip and extract the contents to your GTA folder.
  3. Right click on the game on Steam -> properties -> uncheck the second box that says display in theatre mode.
  4. Click "Set Game Launch Options" and set them as:
    -width 1152 -height 1280 -framelimit 0 -windowed (If non-Steam, create a file called "commandline.txt" in your GTA directory. Put the command line switches in there instead.)
  5. Start the game with SteamVR running.
  6. In the options menu, set the aspect ratio to 5:4. GTA: Vive corrects it in post, but 5:4 is what it assumes.
  7. Make sure you're using DirectX11 in your graphics settings.
  8. While you're in there, lower your settings. A lot. You'll get stutters if you don't.
  9. Restart the game.
  10. Press L once ingame to activate VR mode.

  • Use the trigger to fire.
