I finally got around to updating Dolphin VR for CV1 and SDK 1.3. 🙂
It still has some bugs, for example the mirror window isn't working on Direct3D yet. And I'm not even sure that Opcode Replay mode is working correctly. And I have not pulled the last several months of Dolphin updates, so it is not current with master. And some things may be hardcoded for DK2, like Metroid Prime visors, and haven't been fixed.
Before you can run applications (like Dolphin VR) outside Oculus Home, you need to have Unknown Sources enabled. In the Oculus app window, click on the cog > Settings > General > Unknown Sources.
You will need to rip your GameCube or Wii games to your hard-drive or USB stick, because most optical drives can't read them directly. If you have a Wii or a Wii U (it doesn't need to be modded) and an external hard-drive or USB memory stick, then you can install homebrew channel and use it to dump games. See tutorials online for how to dump games for Dolphin.
Not all games work. Some work almost perfectly, and some are unplayable. Some games have Hide Object Codes and AR Cheat Codes to make them work better in VR, which you can find by right clicking a game in your game list in dolphin and choosing properties, then going to those tabs.
Don't forget to set your Graphics, VR, and Controller options.
I've only tested this on DK2. CV1 probably works. Vive might or might not work. The Vive controllers aren't implemented yet. Razer Hydra works (and can be used as a Nunchuk+Wiimote) but the button mapping is hardcoded, and you can't see your hands yet.
Thank you so much! Now correct me if i'm wrong, but freelook doesn't seem to work in direct3d right only OpenGL? Trying to move the camera around in mario kart wii doesn't move and switching to OpenGL only brings up a black screen during gameplay.
Is there a way to combine smooth yaw rotation and comfort mode? I'd like to have 2 hotkeys for left/right snapturns in addition to the smooth rotation syle. Is that possible somehow? Also, how can I reset my orientation (recalibrate) ?
This is amazing. I just tried out WrestleMania XIX and while it didn't work perfectly, it was fully playable and quite an experience! Hopefully with some adjustments I can make it play even better. Day of Reckoning 2 worked as well, but the audio was unbearable - though visually looked even better than XIX. Really impressed with this so far!
