+1 for OpenXR -- I'm a Vive/Vive Pro user, I loved the original Condor, but I would prefer not to install the Oculus runtime, even for use through Revive. I have not purchased Condor 2 and will not until a non-Oculus VR platform is supported!

I am flying Condor for more than a decade and now I just want to fly in VR. I bought a HP Reverb G2, because I won´t be forced to use a Facebook or other "Zuckerberg-Account" like Occulus. So a Quest2 or Rift S is absolutely no go for me.

Setting up the HP G2 and other "non Occulus" VR-headsets is a hazzle with Condor2 at this time, and will discourage many people from using VR with Condor2 in the future - or even from buying Condor2 at all!
So please, please implement direkt support for non-Occulus headsets and without account-issues. If OpenXR is a solution for this it will be great!

+1 for OpenXR. I'm a former Oculus user. Now Reverb G2. I've deleted all the facebook (Oculus) stuff off my pc. Hoping to use Condor again in the future... non facebook.

+1, please use OpenXR.

I developed the Condor Revive Helper but I would prefer a much more robust solution, and one that is completely free of Facebook!

+1 openXR.

I am new at VR, with hp reverb g2.
Setting up all the system to make condor works with hp reverb g2 has been really a nightmare.

p3d or fs2020 is just one click trouble free setup.

I have a G2 and I was looking forward to purchase Condor 2. But the jungle of apps I would have to install just to make it work with the Oculus API, besides anything related to Facebook being a no-go for me, prevents me from going forward with it.

I will probably check here again when OpenXR is supported.

We don't want to use an API which is not mature or has missing support.

When its ready, so will we be.
OpenXR is ready and fully supported in the latest SteamVR release.

Bumping up https://www.roadtovr.com/steamvr-update ... penxr-1-0/

I use my Oculus Rift with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 via OpenXR. It’s as simple as pressing Ctrl+Tab.

Now SteamVR fully supports OpenXR too. All three major platforms on-board with it. Time for Condor too?

Definitely a +1 from me on this. I upgraded to a Reverb G2 from a Rift S back in November and haven't flown Condor since.
