Half Life 2 and Rift S

Has anyone been able to get Half Life 2 running VR with the Rift S? If so, I'd really appreciate knowing how you did!

     To the best of my knowledge, HL2  doesn't have any VR support yet. I've been seeing a grayed out VR option in the HL2 control panel, but neither my Oculus or Vive can enable it. The only option I know of is VorpX. It looks and plays pretty good in VR with VorpX

    I read somewhere that the VR option in HL2 was for the DK1/2 but not for the rift.  Would be very nice if it did.

    Yeah I've not seen any option to run Half-Life 2 on the Rift since the DK times.

    I am however going to try Max Vollmer's Half-Life-VR for the Quest which apparently will be available tomorrow (will need to be side-loaded).

    I'll make a thread about it if it works... unless someone else beats me to it.

    Thanks. Thought that might be the case.

    There are some guys on the Oculus sub-Reddit that are working on a Half Life 2 VR Mod but no idea when it's going to be released though. I'm giving it until the end of the year and then I'll just use VorpX for it I think.
