Damaged Core now fully supported on HTC Vive with Revive 0.9 update



The Revive tool, which allows you to play some Oculus Rift games on the HTC Vive has been updated to version 0.9.  Most importantly, it now adds full support for Damaged Core, one of the best VR games IMHO.

Previously, you could play Damaged Core on the HTC Vive via Revive but it had a couple of limitations: first, you had to disable reprojection or else there would be a double image.  Second, there are weapons equipped with scopes but you could not use the scope.

With the latest update to Revive, Damaged Core is now fully supported.  I don't need to disable reprojection, and I'm able to use the scope.  I also noticed that the game plays more smoothly even on my modest PC setup (perhaps because reprojection is now allowed).

If you have like FPS games even slightly, and you don't mind having to aim with your gaze as opposed to motion controls, I highly recommend Damaged Core.
