So I’ve been trying to get freespace style space sims to run on VR headsets. I’ve been using VorpX to get VR experience from these games. Sadly most of these games are too old, since VorpX only supports only DX9 or higher. However VorpX also supports OpenGL, which made me think of FSO.
Now I haven’t been able to get the current version of FSO to work with VorpX. But I have managed to get Wing Commander Saga to work quite well, not perfect but definitely enjoyable. Which is awesome since I’ve wanted to play a mission/story based space sim in VR since I was kid.
However getting FSO to work would be a lot cooler, because there’s such a huge library of mods available. My guess is that the current build of FSO is running a more recent version of OpenGL that just isn’t supported by VorpX.
But It might be something completely different as well, because the Wing Commander Saga was heavily modified version of FSO if I’m not mistaken.
So I was wondering does anybody know which version of FSO was the basis for Wing Commander Saga, or if there’s any repository of old FSO builds available anywhere?
