    I don't find that enlightening at all.

    It seems Lord Kunos is saying performance is an issue for VR and they have no control over that with UE4. But anyone using UE4 can have as much control as they like, right down to the source code, and UE4 already has VR support: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/ue4-on-github

    Personally I can't be bothered with hand wringing because I am not the least bit interested in anything that does not support VR.

    Yep i'll agree that i too won't be buying any none VR titles either mate,,,

    Although for me that thread pretty much say's VR definitely won't be supported on early access release and don't keep your hopes up for the future ,,, ,, pretty depressing really seeing as there isn't anything else to look forward too for VR driving sims at the moment.

    You are right, but I believe that I will support VR eventually. Hopefully.

    I question Lord Kunos directly and got what I consider childish responses regarding reasons for withdrawing VR support: http://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/index.php?threads/vr-support-yes-or-no.50080/page-9#post-978852

    sadly with a 3rd party engine like UE4 there isn't much we can do.

    noorbeast said:
    Can I clarify what you mean, as even the source code is available for UE4?

    Lord Kunos said:
    UE4 is a multimillion lines of code monster with a team of hundreds of the most talented devs in the world working on it full time.
    Do you really think some italian dude can simply get in there and find performances if they can't?

    noorbeast said:
    Yes I do, even indie devs should be optimising their work, irrespective of what engine they choose.

    And UE4 has been successfully used by many devs for VR. If needed devs can even access the source code of the likes of Robot Recall and see how to properly structure a complex project for VR.

    If you bother to contact the UE4 team I suspect they would be keen to help you out, as the last thing UE4 wants or needs is silly claims that it is difficult to optimise for VR, particularly as it is one of the two main engines that are utilised for most of the VR implementation in both gaming and other applications.

    I already said what I think about Lord Kunos, as a programmer and as a man.

    One thing's for sure: no VR, no way I can play the game. I really can't, I don't even have a monitor near my rig...
    I could buy the game in EA just to support them and as a way to thank them for AC, but it would lay not-installed
