How to conveniently stream/record VRidge gameplay

If you want to use VRidge logo or other promotional images then we have a library of free-to-use press kit material available here - https://riftcat.com/media

If you want to record exactly what you are seeing on your headset/phone then there is an easy way to do so. Start your VRidge stream as you would normally do, then go to RiftCat folder and start StreamView.exe. It will open a transparent window in the background showing exactly what you see. Mouse clicks go through the transparent window.

It starts in transparent mode so that you can still operate on your system without StreamView getting in the way. You can disable transparent mode by pressing keybind. Keybinds are explained down below.

Now you can add the StreamView window as the source to your recording software. Here is an example how to do it in OBS:

If you want to record your Monitor instead then you will have to disable transparent mode. Among transparent mode, there are keybinds that can do much more and they follow similar pattern - CTRL + ALT + SHIFT + (key from below).

It's important to note that these changes are exclusive to StreamView window. Your VRidge stream on phone/headset won't be affected.

HOME - Enables/Disables transparent mode, mouse button clicks go through the transparent mode

PAGE UP - Changes the monitor that is being streamed (in case of multi monitor setup)

END - Enable StreamView configuration mode, press again to save and exit configuration mode.

Following actions can be used in the configuration mode (StreamView has to be in focus):

Plus (‘+’) / Minus (‘-’) (not numpad) - Changes the scale.

Open Bracket (‘(‘) / Close Bracket (‘)’) - Changes the IPD.

Semicolon (‘;’) / Apostrophe (‘) - Changes barrel warp coefficient.

- Resets the settings to defaults.

 

Advanced tweaking

If you want to tweak numeric values even further or enable chromatic aberration, you can manually edit values in RiftCat folder\Config\vridge.cfg (open vridge.cfg in Notepad). Scroll down to Moonlight.Distort section there and explore distortion options. You can freely change those values and StreamView window will automatically load new values each time you save the file. If you break the file structure, you can delete the file and VRidge will re-create it next time it tries to read config.

  • AspectRatio - default value of 0.8899 equals to 1920/2 (per eye) divided by 1080. You shouldn’t need to change it unless you use non 16:9 monitor
  • BackgroundColor (r, g, b, alpha) - defines the color of the space outside of the lenses
  • ChromaticAbberation (x, y, z, w) - configures red (x, y) and blue (z, w) channel offsets
  • Distort - usually default value is the best
  • IPD - distance of eye viewport from each other screen, values ranging from 0 (no offset) to 1 (distance unit equal to viewport width)
  • Scale - multiplies eye viewport size
  • Warp - defines strength of the barrel distortion to counter lens distortion, you can tweak two middle values
