Welcome to the one and only fully wireless 6DoF implementation of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein single player campaign in VR.
This is built solely for the Oculus Quest VR HMD and will not run on any other device.
The easiest way to install this on your Quest is using SideQuest, a PC Desktop app designed to simplify sideloading apps and games ( even beat saber songs on quest ) on Standalone Android Headsets like Oculus Quest and Oculus Go. It supports drag and drop for installing APK files!
We recommend doing all copy / move operations via the Sidequest App. Windows File System in combination with ADB has severe caching / syncronisation issues and will often show files that no longer exist and not show files that have been moved.
Before attempting to start RTCWQuest you need to do the following:
Does Multiplayer Work?
I'm a terrible shot, can I cheat by having a laser sight.
You scoundrel! You can indeed have a laser pointer. This and other VR option can be found in-game -> Pause Menu -> Controls
The height of my player is incorrect!
The height of the player plus various other options can be found in-game -> Pause Menu -> Controls
I am left handed, should I resign myself to having to shoot with my weaker hand?
Absolutely Not! Left hand mode can be activated in game -> Pause Menu -> Controls
I get VR sick...
We feel your pain; All of our team have strong VR Legs. Teleport mode can be activated in game -> Pause Menu -> Controls. You can still move with the left hand stick or alternatively press the left trigger button to teleport.
To enable smooth turning, simply set the snap turn value to very low, try a few values out to find one that suits you.
Once teleport has been enabled in the config menu, you can press the off-hand trigger to activate the teleport, aim with the offhand controller to the desired location and release the trigger to teleport, normal locomotion is still available too, though if you wish to turn that off then you can reduce the movement speed to zero in the configuration menu. NOTE: There is nothing to stop you cheating with the teleport
If you really want to, you can enable a laser sight in the controls menu.
Player height can be adjusted for those that wish to play seated.
The FG42 and the Mauser can have their scopes toggled on and off by using the weapon alt mode (note the scoped Mauser is only available once the scope has been picked up in the game). When the scope is attached, to trigger the scoped view, ensure you are holding the weapon in two hands (use off-hand grip button) and then look through the scope on the weapon, this will switch you to scope mode:
Move the controllers like you would when looking through the scope to aim by moving the weapon
Use the dominant thumb stick forward / back to zoom in / out
When using the scope you will move at 1/3 normal speed
Thumbstick Turning is disabled when the scope is active
Release the off hand grip or move the dominant controller away from your face to exit scoped mode
There is no fire button, simply stab with it or swing it to use it like a knife.
Grenades / Pineapples / Dynamite
These are all throwable. Hold the trigger and then throw the item, releasing the trigger at the apex of the throw.
Mounted Guns (MG42)
Mounted guns are aimed using gaze direction, pull trigger to fire, press "activate" to enter/exit mounted gun mode.
There is a handy backpack feature which acts as a quick access to certain weapons/pickups. To access the backpack move the controller out of sight over your shoulder. Press and hold one of the following buttons to access the associated items:
Dominant Hand Controller
A (or X for left handed) - Knife (useful to quickly smash up stuff or stab)
B (or Y for left handed) - Binoculars (once you have picked them up in game), raise them to your face to look through them, pull trigger to zoom in/out
Grip button - Grenades / Dynamite - You can then throw them in the usual manner using the trigger
Release the button to return to the previously active weapon
Off Hand Controller
X (or A for left handed) - Quick Save Game
Y (or B for left handed) - Load Last Quick Save
I would like to thank the following teams and individual for making this possible:
The following are issues known to us, but we did not feel it was worth holding up the release to investigate:
On the whole RTCWQuest performs excellently on the Oculus Quest, achieving the native 72fps in most situations. However in some larger outdoor areas we have noticed some minor drops into the 60's. If you prefer solid performance over visual quality you can adjust the below:
