XVR - eXtreme VR

Welcome to the XVR Wiki!

Hello everybody and welcome to the brand new XVR wiki. This wiki will host any sort of documentation efforts on XVR, as well as troubleshooting, programming techniques, how-tos and real-life experience.

XVR Documentation

  • This page is part of a current effort to "wikify" the non-automatically generated part of XVR documentation. It features also lots of snippets explaining some of the most important features of XVR classes and functions.
For obvious reasons this is updated more frequently than the documentation distributed together with XVR Studio. Check it out when you can't find there what you are looking for. And if you still can't find what you need please let us know in the forums.
