Never even thought of doing this. I doubt Norb's games support VR though.

I agree, I also don´t think it supports it but there are ways to play it even if a game does supports VR.

I just want to know if anybody on the forum even tried it, since I think it can enhance my experience further since I dont think there is a game that can give you the deep immersion of actually being there that this sim has to offer.

In principle, you could use VorpX (https://www.vorpx.com/) to force Scourge of War to run inside a VR system.

I have not done this with Scourge of War.

However... I've done it with several other games, and the results began at Very Bad and went downhill from there. In the best cases, I merely became very motion sick (which is hard to do to me). The the worse cases, the game interface get broken *as well as* making you sick.

As far as I can tell, the sickness occurs because the non-VR games violate one or both of:

* Don't change my point of view and head location unless I move them
* Always change my point of view and head location when I move them

Neither of these rules matter much on a flat screen.

Last but not least - if you are determined, you may be able to build up a tolerance for the effect, according to some postings I have seen online.
