VR Initial Launch Process

July 31st, 2023


Please note: VR is an experimental feature with limited capabilities. We look to expand our VR support in the future.

In order to launch Virbela in VR, you will need to log in to Virbela. Once logged in, Click on the gear icon menu on the top right-hand side of the screen and select Preferences.

Preference Menu

From the Preferences window that appears, scroll down slightly and click the appropriate button under “VR API” for your headset, then click Save and Close in the bottom right corner. Note that you will need to restart Virbela in order for this change to take effect.

For Open VR/Steam VR:

The world will look slightly different, and from a first-person perspective as opposed to an over-the-shoulder view! You'll be able to see your arms if you move them in front of your face, and by pulling the triggers on your controller, you'll be able to move around your fingers! You'll also find a watch on your left wrist with the current time.

If you are satisfied with your trial of Virbela in VR and would like to go back to using it via the standard method, please make sure that you go through the same process outlined above, but change your VR API back to “None”. Make sure to click “Save & Close”, then, relaunch and log back into Virbela.
