Doom 3 BFG VR: Fully Possessed V0.020 Alpha
This is sizeable update with many new features and improvements.
New features include:
Teleportation is now supported, including a parabolic aiming beam.
Voice commands are supported - say a weapon name to select it!
Flicksync mode based on Ready Player One.
Many aids to prevent motion sickness, including a new Third Person movement mode.
Many other improvements have been made, please see the readme.txt for a full feature list and documentation.
No single controller configuration or comfort setting is going to accommodate all users equally,
so Doom 3 BFGVR: Fully Possessed defaults to a comfort oriented mode. In the default mode, comfort ( or snap ) turning is enabled by default, and artificial movement uses the Third Person mode. These settings should provide a comfortable experience for almost all users. These settings may be easily changed or disabed in game if they do not suit your needs. From the System Menu ( say 'System', or press ≡ (menu) on the left Touch or Right Vive ), then select 'VR Options' then 'Comfort + Safety Protocols'. From this menu, use the 'Turning' options to change the turning mode (' smooth 'is standard analog turning - caution - smooth turning causes motion sickness in most people ). Use the 'Motion Sickness Aid' options to change the comfort settings. 'None' disables all motion aids, but this will induce motion sickness in the vast majority of people.
Default Controller Layout
The default controller layout can also easily be changed in game. Any controller button or Stick/Pad axis can be mapped to any in game action, to easily create a controller layout tailored to your liking. From the System Menu ( say 'System', or press ≡ (menu) on the left Touch or Right Vive ), Select 'Controls' then 'Key Bindings', Scroll through the list and highlight the action you would like to change the control for. Press the trigger to enter 'bind' mode, then simply press the controller button or stick/pad axis you would like to assign to that action. If the button or stick is already assigned to a different control, you will be asked if you are sure you want to re map, otherwise you are done! A button or joystick/pad axis can be unbound from an action the exact same way.
Installing Doom 3 BFG: Fully Possessed.
There are two options for installing the mod: A self-extracting installer, or a .zip file.
Due to the inclusion of new player AAS files needed to support teleportation, the size of the mod has
increased a fair amount. You will need about 1GB of free hard drive space to install the mod.
Installing with the self-extracting installer
Download the file 'Doom3BFGVR_Fully_Possessed_Alpha020_Installer.exe' from the release page at the top of this post and execute.
By default, the installer will look to install the mod in the default app directory in your Steam library on drive C. If your Steam library is in a different location, or you have installed doom 3 someplace else, browse to the location of your Doom 3 BFG installation. IMPORTANT If you browse to select a directory to install the mod, the installer will append 'Doom 3 BFG edition' to the install path. REMOVE THIS from the install path, so that only the full name of your Doom 3 BFG directory is displayed. Failure to do this will result in the mod files being installed in the wrong directory. Once installed, you should see a folder named 'Fully Possessed' inside your main Doom 3 directory along with some support files and the Doom3BFGVR.exe. Launch this .exe to play.
Installing with the .zip file
Download the 'Doom3BFGVR_Fully_Possessed_Alpha020.zip' file from the release page at the top of this post, and extract into your main Doom 3 BFG directory. You should see a folder named 'Fully Possessed' inside your main Doom 3 directory along with some support files and the Doom3BFGVR.exe. Launch this .exe to play.
Compatibility with existing Mods or Native Doom 3 BFG
Doom 3 BFG: Fully Possessed stores all changed assets and save games in their own directories. Installing the mod will not interfere with existing mods or the native game.
Compatibility with the Hi-Def texture pack
Doom 3 BFG:Fully Possessed is compatible with the hi-def texture pack. Please be aware that the 'generated' folder included in the hi-def texture pack is corrupt, and will crash the game if not deleted. This is not an issue with this mod, but with the texture pack itself. After installing the texture pack, delete the 'generated' folder inside the 'Base' directory.
Many bugs have been addressed in this relase, but if you do find one, please open an issue on our tracker. We can't fix it if we don't know its broken!
Fixed bug related to save game crashes. Archives updated
Additional Update 12-9:
I've updated the OpenVR version of the mod to address issues some people were having, and added a few new features.
There are now versions of the mod that support OpenVR and the Rift/Touch natively via the Oculus SDK.
See below for a link and additional info.
I've updated the mod and posted a test verison with native Oculus/Touch support.
This includes full motion controls and the ability to interact with in game guis and the PDA by using them as touch screens.
Please make a clean copy of your doom 3 directory before installing, right now this mod will not co-exist with other mods as too many of the assets have been changed.
Take a look at the description on the release page, and the two readme files included in the archive. I've also included a .pdf that lists most of the common cvars you can use to configure the mod. Please remember all the controls ( all joystick axes and buttons) can be unbound or remapped to any other control. In the system menus go to (Settings->Controls->Key Bindings)
There's still a little oddness during loading screens. Let me know if you find any issues. This is the first test of this, so there may be issues I'm unaware of, please let me know if you find anything.
I've been working on a mod for Doom 3 BFG edition for a while, and it might be ready for an alpha test. I'm looking for people to test and let me know what issues ( and I'm sure there will be some ) you have. ( Please note this is an entirely new mod, not a variant of an existing one.)
Anyway, here we go:
Full motion control support for weapons, with support for right or left handed control.
Reload mechanics and motion controlled melee attacks are NOT finished yet, but in progress.
For now press the attack button to punch and reload to well, reload. Grenades are now
thrown via motion controls.
The flashlight can be held in the off hand, mounted to the weapon, mounted to the player helmet, or
mounted to the player body. If 'mount to weapon' mode is enabled, and a weapon without a barrel is
selected (e.g. grenade, fists, chainsaw) the flashlight is temporarily moved to the head.
Player body view modes:
You can chose to view the entire player body with ( very very basic ) IK for the arms, view the weapon and
hands, or view the weapons only.
Weapon sight modes:
Chose from a laser sight, laser dot, circle dot, or crosshair.
Optional heading indicator.
With independent head/body movement it's easy to forget which way the body ( and forward
movement) is pointing. The heading beam points in the direction the body is moving. Beam can be
solid, have arrows, or scrolling arrow. Temporary artwork.
The player body is locked to user position, so moving in the real world moves the player body.
Optional comfort turning, with user defined delta and repeat delay.
Walk speed adjustment from game default consistent over level changes
Option for forward movement to be in direction off hand controller is pointed
Headkick and knockback are disabled by default but can be toggled.
For non motion controls, you can lock the view and aim together, or use independent aiming with user
Hud is translucent and projected into world.
Hud can be locked to the view or the body.
Hud position and size are configurable.
Hud can be toggled on or off, or faded in when user looks down past defined angle
If hidden, can be configured to reveal when health below defined level
Individual Hud elements can be turned on or off if desired
Stat Watch ( for the love of god someone come up with a better name )
Ammo stats are provided on a wrist worn armament inventory device if player has weapon equipped.
Soon to provide health stats as well.
Gui interaction modes.
Player can choose one of three ways to interact with in game guis
1) Look direction controls gui cursor
2) Weapon aim controls guis, in the event weapon has no barrel (grenade, fists, etc) default to look
3) If motion controls are enabled, guis can be touch activated. When close enough to touch, look at gui
to activate then touch gui to control.
PDA is rendered as model in game.
PDA can be held in hand, or fixed in a position in front of the player body. If gui touch mode is enabled, the
PDA works as a touch screen device. Pressing escape during the game brings up the system menus in
game on the PDA.
PDA fixed position can be adjusted.
Cinematics are now from a fixed camera position. This is still being worked on, but is much better than the
free camera IMO. Some camera files still need to be tweaked for some of the cinematics. Pressing the PDA
button will exit the current cinematic
Pixel density can be adjusted.
ALL controller buttons and axes can be re-mapped to any control or action.
Weapon models have been fully fleshed out.All of the options are currently controlled via cvars that start with vr_. I'll add the options to the menus at some point.
