Full article

Project Cars latest release is out and available for download now. Project Cars, one of the launch titles for the Oculus Rift, is now fully compatible with the HTC Vive.

In addition to Vive support, Slightly Mad Studios brought some other VR niceties. Cars now include VR mouse support, Gaze control support, and the ability to swap seamlessly between them and use them along with Custom Controllers and Gamepads.
Gaze support is similar to Oculus Home and other VR environments where you just look at the option, wait a few seconds, then it is selected.

Slightly Mad Studios recommends that you delete the configuration files that store the various settings. These are found in "\Users\<username>\Documents\Project CARS" and are the files with XML extension.
