Announced this week by developer Guild Software is a new update to the studios massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), Vendetta Online. The space combat title which supports Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, and iOS, has now been upgraded to version 1.8.355. But due to the update, virtual reality (VR) support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) has currently been disabled.
One of the main new features added is the ability to now use DirectX 11 by default. This feature can be implemented when installing on Microsoft’s Windows operating system for the first time.
Guild Software has said in regards to the Oculus Rift issue: “Oculus Rift support has been temporarily disabled, until we can complete our update to the 0.7 beta of the Oculus SDK. Rift support will likely return next week.” Adding: “Those Windows users who want to try the auto-detected DX11 settings can rename their “wgaf.cfg” and “config.ini” in their install directory, and re-run the game. We welcome feedback and bug reports (Bugs forum) on DX11 problems,” reports Softpedia.
Vendetta Online users can update for free when exiting the videogame, but new users will need a license from the website. Oculus Rift users may want to hold off on updating until Guild Software re-integrates the HMD back into the title
VRFocus will continue to report on further updates from Guild Software, as it looks add VR support back into Vendetta Online.
