FAQ

Frequently asked questions.

Can I use LÖVR without a VR headset?

Yes, LÖVR will automatically use a fake headset system that you can control with your keyboard/mouse if there isn't any VR hardware detected.

You can also set the t.modules.headset flag to false in lovr.conf to disable VR completely and develop a traditional 3D desktop application.

Does LÖVR work with mobile devices (Cardboard, Gear VR, Oculus Go, etc.)?

No, there isn't official support for mobile hardware yet. However, you can run projects in a browser using WebVR and those will usually work on mobile devices. An Android port is also in progress but isn't available yet.

Are there macOS binaries available?

Yes, you can download them from https://lovr.org/download/mac.

Is there any way to access keyboard/mouse input?

Yes, see lovr-keyboard and lovr-mouse on the Libraries page.

Does LÖVR work on Linux?

Sorta. Linux is an officially supported platform and generally works, but there aren't a lot of people using LÖVR/VR on Linux so problems come up from time to time. If you do run into something, please open an issue or post in Slack about it.
