How to Set Up Dirt 3 With VIREIO On The Oculus Rift DK2

Vireio Perception driver in dirt 3

First grab Dirt 3 from somewhere. Remember if you purchase Dirt 3 from Steam it just will not work and good luck getting a refund from them. What it fails to tell you is you need to install Games for Windows before you install Dirt 3

Once that is done, you’re ready to set this up for VR.

Set-Up Instructions

The general site is http://www.vireio.com/

  1. Download the latest release version
    NOTE: This is a very new version but so far great with me. It allows you to specify which screen your DK2 resides, see screen shot in step 4 below.
  2. Once you have the .zip downloaded, expand the .zip into a folder and run the VirieoPerceptionProfiler.exe under the /Bin folder
  3. Ensure your Dirt3 is pointing to the correct location as follows:

    The default Dirt 3 location is:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\DiRT 3
  4. Within the same /Bin right click Perception.exe and select Run As Administrator
    You should then be presented with this screen:

    This new version allows you to specify the exact monitor to send to. Very cool!
  5. Finally, you need to force the game into DirectX9 mode instead of DirectX11
    Go to “C:\Users\your user name\Documents\My Games\DiRT3\hardwaresettings” [This varies depending on if Steam or not] and right click on “hardware_settings_config.xml” and click EDIT. Look for:
    directx forcedx9=”false”
    Change “false” to “true” to force DirectX9
  6. Final step, launch Dirt 3. Enjoy Dirt 3 in VR!
NOTE: If you run into any problems. You can also copy the following .dlls (d3d9.dll, hijackdll.dll, libfreespace.dll, VRboost.dll) from your perception /bin folder into your steam folder which is probably: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\DiRT 3
