Homebrew patch lets you play Oculus Rift games on HTC Vive

Posted on Thursday, April 14 2016 @ 13:50:07 CEST by


The Oculus Rift has quite a number of Oculus-exclusive games but it appears these can run quite easily on other hardware like the HTC Vive. A Reddit user released his homebrew LibreVR code at GitHub, the project is called Revive and enables you to play Oculus Rift exclusive games on the HTC Vive. This means HTC Vive users can now also enjoy Lucky's Tale, one of the most impressive Oculus launch offerings that can be downloaded for free.

The only catch is that the patch still requires Oculus runtimes to be running in the background on your computer. Users who tried it report Revive works fine and delivers smooth performance.
Oculus founder Palmer Luckey has publicly stated that "we can only extend our SDK to work with other headsets if the manufacturer allows us to do so," seemingly passing the buck to HTC and Valve in regards to why its Oculus Store games don't natively support the other leading PC headset. Valve has denied this assertion. Either way, we no longer have to wait for the companies to settle their legal and licensing differences, thanks to the efforts of the LibreVR plug-in, dubbed Revive.
