Euro Truck Simulator 2 update compatible with Vive and Rift

    One of the first full games that supported virtual reality was Euro Truck Simulator 2. The developers updated the game every change of the way. However, it took a while to make it work with the consumer software. Today Euro Truck Simulator is updated and works with the latest Oculus runtime 1.3. If you’re new to the game you have to change some settings first.

    The first thing you need to do is enabling unknown services in the Oculus Store. Start the Oculus Store on your desktop and click on the gear icon in the upper right. Select Settings and open the page General on the left. Locate the Unknown Sources toggle and slide it to the right (a check appears instead of an X). You need to confirm the warning by clicking Allow.

    The next step must be done in Steam. Open your Library, click with the right mouse button on Euro Truck Simulator 2 and choose Properties.  Open the tab BETAS and select from the dropdown menu Oculus – Experimental Oculus support (1.3.0) – 1.22. Open the tab GENERAL and click on SET LAUNCH OPTIONS. Now fill in the command -oculus and click OK. Close the Properties window and start Euro Truck Simulator.

    The settings for the Vive are similar. Open the same Properties and open the tab GENERAL. Click on the button SET LAUNCH OPTIONS and use the command -openvr. At the time of writing, there seems to be a minor issue with SteamVR since the game is loading in steam theater. This will probably be solved in a short time.

    Euro Truck Simulator is one of the first games I devoted my first full VR hours to. I even trained to drive with a trailer (In the Netherlands you need a special driver’s license for that). This are some video’s from earlier support.
