Welcome to The Hitchhiker's Guide to VR. Bring a towel.

Right now this mostly catalogues my own experiences, but it's a wiki, so feel free to chip in.

Note that MediaWiki can shit itself if you use an adblocker, so turn yours off if you run into issues. I don't do ads, although I may run self-hosted Matomo for stats in the future.

Newbie Guides


Useful Tools

  • XS Overlay - Movable in-game desktop panes, a wristwatch, and more
  • OVR Toolkit - The shittier alternative to XSOverlay, with poorer performance, UI, and stability.
  • Stoplight - Shows you how tangled up your cord is (this is available in SteamVR now).
  • OpenVR Advanced Settings - Provides power-user access to lots of SteamVR settings, and includes the powerful Playspace Mover utility.


Social Games

Name Supports Price Notes
VRChat Free+ Currently the largest social VR game. Not well-designed or well-implemented. Community fleeing due to addition of EAC.
NEOS Free Lots of cool features, confusing UI and an absolute lack of documentation. Also furries and shitcoinslol that burned good.
ChilloutVR Free+ Early access, exploding community.
Lavender FreeDead VERY early access, dead community, aimless developer. Actually dead.
