Dreadhalls updated to Oculus Runtime 0.7
Dreadhalls developer Sergio Hidalgo has updated his VR Horror game to support the Oculus runtime 0.7. For those aren’t aware, the latest Oculus Runtime makes a number of old VR games and demos unplayable. With Dreadhalls updated to the latest SDK, users should be able to see some incread performance and stability.
I have updated the old VRJam prototype of Dreadhalls to work with Oculus runtime 0.7 (at last!). You can get it from http://t.co/wKh8BvQEG4

The new Oculus SDK 0.7.0.0 removes the extended mode option and instead runs games and apps under the new Direct Driver Mode. While this does enhance the Oculus Rift’s performance and lowers judder, it disables the ability to use the Rift as a monitor causing several demos and applications to no longer be playable.
