Has anybody tried playing ROF in 3d with Oculus Rift using a program like Virtual Desktop?

 

Before I try it myself I want to check to see if any one else has had the same idea and actually tried it to see if it works.

Haven't heard of that idea - would be great if somebody could figure out some sort of third party way to fly RoF in VR.

I have given this a Google search and found nothing. I agree that it would be cool to find a way to set this up. If you find anything, make sure to let us know. I am going to keep looking as I had the same idea a while ago.

I also looked on the SimHQ forums and found a VR thread that helped a lot.

The short version:
I am now using Oculus Rift, TrackIR and Virtual Desktop with Tridef 3D and a 3D monitor. And I love it!!!

I’m still in the process of tweaking the settings, but it is almost as good as true VR, but in a non-VR DX-9 game. The big difference is the TrackIR because the pilot head movement in game only requires about half my actual head movement just like when I was using the 3D monitor.

One advantage of TrackIR is that I don’t have to strain my neck to check my 6 like I do in IL2 BOS in true VR. And, of course, now I don’t have to strain my eyes to keep the monitor in sight.

I also tried Tridef VR but it just moved the desktop around in a virtual space

Is there any reason that you really need to be using a 3D monitor given that you're also using the Rift?  This sounds like something that might be fun to play around with, but I neither have nor want a 3D monitor for anything else.

Tridef 3D requires a 3D monitor to work. It really is kind of a jury rigged set up that is kind of glitchy, but it is great to be able to play ROF using the Rift instead of a stationary monitor.

 

I just went back and played BOS in VR and noticed that another big difference between ROF using this setup and IL2 BOS in VR is that ROF is in a rectangular window that can be set to fill the field of view in the Oculus instead of the real looking 360 degree world of BOS which is designed for VR.

Hmm - that's too bad - seems kinda silly to need a 3D monitor and never actually look at it. I wonder if there's any way to fool Tridef 3D into thinking you have a 3D monitor?
