Experience Risk of Rain 2 in virtual reality with full motion controls support! Join the Flatscreen to VR Discord server to stay up to date with the development.
Playing in VR should be possible with any Oculus or SteamVR compatible devices. This includes WMR headsets with SteamVR. Make sure to disable game theatre mode in the game's properties.
If you want to support me and gain access to pre-release testing builds, you can head to my Patreon!
It is strongly recommended to use a mod manager such as the Thunderstore Mod Manager or r2modman and press the "Install with Mod Manager" button. Once done, you can start the game using the "Start modded" button.
For manual download, make sure to have BepInEx and HookGenPatcher installed. You can then download the VR mod with the "Manual Download" button and copy the
patchers folder into the
Shoutout to laila, HutchyBen, Skarl1n, Geb, Popzix and Terrorcotta211 for helping me add support for all these controllers! Some controllers need special SteamVR bindings.
The Index Knuckles and the Reverb G2 controllers use the same binds as the Oculus Touch controllers but need special bindings in SteamVR in order to function properly. Their support in this version of Unity isn't well implemented out of the box. There are two ways to correctly bind your controllers:
You can download the corresponding binding file below:
With your file downloaded, open a file explorer and go to
C:/Users/%USERNAME%/Documents/steamvr/input/imports. Create the
imports folder if necessary. Drag the binding file you downloaded into that directory.
Now that the file is setup, you can open the game in VR and open the SteamVR overlay. Inside the overlay, you can go activate the custom binding:
The community managed to publish either these binds or their own version publicly for you to try. You can find them in the same place as the GIF above shows.
Each person has a different level of tolerance regarding motion sickness and VR. Despite that, Risk of Rain 2 was not intended to be played in VR. This means that getting motion sick is more likely, especially with high mobility characters such as Loader or Mercenary. We plan to make the VR experience better for players in the future and feedback regarding this issue would be very appreciated.
Your hands will appear once you start a game. The menus don't use any motion controls at the moment. You can simply use the joysticks to navigate.
Yes! The mod is only required for VR players. You can play with vanilla players just fine too!
The VR Mod settings can be accessed in the mod manager while the game is closed. On the left, click on
Config Editor > VRMod > Edit Config. You can then change the settings to your liking. Once you're done, make sure to save your changes with the
Save button on the top-right.
It honestly feels pretty great! This mod makes you play in first person by default but you can always come back to third person using the config editor.
This is likely because the game is not in focus on your PC. Make sure to click on the game window to pull it to the front. If your cursor is stuck in place, you can press the Windows key or Ctrl+Escape to unlock it and click on the game. If that doesn't fix it, relaunching the game should work.
If you are using SteamVR and the game launches in game theatre mode, right click the game on Steam and go to
Properties > General. You can then turn off the "Use Desktop Game Theatre while SteamVR is active" option. If it's still not working, there was likely an error when trying to activate VR. Ask for help on the Discord server.
There isn't an official way to change your binds yet. You can do some changes to your controller binds in SteamVR but it won't change the icons shown in-game.
Disabling SSAO and Bloom in the game's settings should improve the performance. Make sure you also don't have too many other applications running in the background. If necessary, you can lower the resolution of your headset in SteamVR.
No worries! You can switch to Oculus mode in the config file.
1. After launching the game in VR at least once, go to r2modman and click the
Config editor on the left side.
2. Click on
VRMod > Edit Config.
3. Set "Use Oculus mode" to
4. Click the
Save button on the top-right.
To access the config file if you downloaded the mod manually, go to your game directory and head to
BepInEx/config. You can then edit the "VRMod.cfg" file with a text editor.
