Star Trek Bridge Crew (Oculus Rift / HTC Vive)
Hello Support,

Does anyone know if Oculus Rift or HTC Vive will work with Cross Over? Has anyone tried this?

If not, I wonder what the process would be to get this working.

Thank you,

Geoffrey
Hello Geoffrey,

i have not tested it myself, but, especially on a Mac, there are currently several reasons why this will be a problem.

First of all, there is no official hardware available from Apple which can drive the OR/Vive regarding (3D/gfx) performance (graphic card).
That's the official reason stated why there is no VR support in Mac yet, generally.

CrossOver itself is not an emulation but maybe some sort of layer on top which is not yet fully completed, especially in terms of specific DRM which OC uses.

My bet is: no, it won't run, also not within the next few month.

It is maybe possible that a native implementation of OC it Vive will follow someday but currently, i don't think so.

Bye
Björn
