Live For Speed version 0.6P released
A new patch for Live for Speed has been released. Update V0.6P features a selection of fixes and improvements for VR and the controller settings.
With the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets now being shipped to customers, Live for Speed is on a revival tour. Eve tough the LFS simulator already works like a charm with the existing VR headsets, the development team made it their top priority to make sure LFS works with the newest headsets and their latest software.
Furthermore, with V0.6P, the dev team has continued working on improving the controller support. More game controllers and steering wheels are now set up automatically and multiple controller setups are also much better supported.
