User Manual 3dRudder Driver for SteamVR

Introduction


The 3dRudder team has developed a 3dRudder Driver for SteamVR

This Driver has the same aim that the controller mode of VR unleash mode from our Dashboard,

which allows binding and setting the 3dRudder for PC in all games in SteamVR. 


The reasons why we propose this new driver are the following:


  • A better compatibility of the 3dRudder with all versions of SteamVR. The VR unleash mode of the Dashboard is specific to one version of SteamVR. During an update of SteamVR, we can have a compatibility issues with the VR Unleash mode of the Dashboard.

  • No conflict with Hand controllers(left and right).

  • Save and share configurations with all Steam users.

  • Visibility on Steam (having our own settings window and being able to download our driver on the Steam store).

The limits of the Driver are


  • No page to customize axes of the 3dRudder (deadzone, xstat, exp).

  • Cannot use games config on Dashboard and Driver simultaneously. 

  • Does not work by default, users must have to create or get config for each game.
