VR beta patch 3

Hey Everyone,


This patch adds multiplayer support to the VR version of The Forest and also adds some fixes and improvements to the regular 2d version of the game.


For the 2d game we fixed a bug where food and waterskin could vanish from certain save games, added a new progress circle as DS games are loading, made sticky bombs clearer visually and fixed a few cave and crafting issues.


For the VR version of the game, you can now play in multiplayer, either with other VR players or with regular 2d players. For animation, we’ve added an IK system so you can see the other players arm movements in VR. This means with motion controls you can now wave to your friends, or show off your best dance moves around the campfire.


We also added an option to choose which hand holds the bow, added an option in the menu to choose which audio driver to use (which should fix all issues of players reporting no sound) and fixed some other small issues.


For the full list check below:


  • Sticky bombs made clearer visually in inventory

  • Caves - fixed air hole in waterzone under geese lake

  • Caves- fixed hole in cave 9

  • Walkie talkie now shows a click to equip in inventory and can now be equipped from inventory

  • Fixed quiver getting completed instead of rabbit boots if there are enough ingredients for the later

  • Fixed a case of some item views being broken in inventory after loading a save

  • VR:Vive triggers buttons deadzone increased, less sensitive to minor touches

  • VR:Player body is now aligned with vr camera angle when rotating more than 90 degrees
