Limitations and known issues

  • OpenGL is currently not supported
  • Only the driving mode shows the scene in real 3d, background of menu is currently 2d
  • The head orientation is currently used only by the interior camera.
  • There might be distortions when using some menu screens in 3d mode or when switching the 3d mode of the menu in some situations.
  • The advisor was moved to the bottom center of the screen when Oculus is used however no other optimizations were done.
  • The game does not reset the orientation when entering truck so you will have to do that manually by pressing F12.
  • The default reset key F12 coincides with the default Steam screenshot key.
  • If the r_manual_stereo_in_menu variable does not exist, the game will launch with menu in 2d mode although it sets the variable to launch in 3d mode the next time.
  • No neck simulation yet
  • Was only tested with the SD version of Oculus devkit.
