Oculus Rift support unofficially modded into Minecraft

A modder by the name of StellaArtois has released some very rough and completely unofficial but totally working drivers to enable you to play Minecraft through the Oculus Rift VR headset (even though he currently doesn’t even have one of his own to test it on!).

The mod is very clearly in alpha state and requires quite a few steps to get it to work successfully, including opening your .jar files and mucking around with the contents, as well as changing Windows environment variables. But you’re a proud PC gamer! Don’t let that stop you.

Our forum user Mekon has already got it running on his machine, and says that head tracking works fine, “although I can’t recommend strongly enough that you turn mouse sensitivity down to at least 30% or lower, or you will blow chunks – the simplest nudge of the mouse at 100% seems to spin you around 720 degrees in a nanosecond”. Good advice!

Download the mod and get the instructions here.
