Oculus "don't condone" HTC Vive software hacks

Don't plan on playing Lucky's Tale on your Vive for too long...

Yesterday brought the news that a few enterprising gamers had found a way to get Oculus Rift exclusive content to run on HTC Vive headsets. Today Oculus has warned users that it's not a fan of the move and future updates will probably kill the hacked games.

"This is a hack, and we don't condone it. Users should expect that hacked games won't work indefinitely, as regular software updates to games, apps, and our platform are likely to break hacked software," Oculus told

Reddit user CrossVR posted the software that allows Lucky's Tale and the Oculus Dreamdeck demos to run on the HTC Vive.

"It may work with plenty of other games, but that hasn't been tested by myself. It's still early days for this project, since it's only been in development for a few weeks. In the future more games will be supported, but I'm glad to see such swift progress already," CrossVR explained.
