How to Play/Install GTA V in VR Step by Step On Oculus Quest

  1. Check Your Requirements
  2. Change Your GTA 5 Settings For Optimal VR Gameplay
  3. Install The GTA 5 VR Mod
  4. 2nd Method: Installing Custom Songs (Directly)

Yes, that’s it. That’s all you need to do to install Custom Beat Saber Songs on your Beat Saber

GTA V VR
So here are the steps that you need to follow to install the GTA V VR MOD to play GTA 5 in VR (Refer to the pictures provided)

Step 1 : Check Your Requirements

Now, first of all, you’ll need to have a fresh install of GTA 5 on your PC without any other mods installed. 

If you’ve never installed any mods before, then you should be fine without reinstalling the whole game.

But please ensure the game is up to date and also note that this mod is for the single-player game only, and you’ll likely get a ban if using mods like this one in the online multiplayer.

GTA 5 VR

Although the VR mod can work with other mods, compatibility isn’t guaranteed if you have any success with using it with other mods though please share your results with the community in the comments down below.

If you don’t already own a copy of GTA 5, Rockstar’s games are currently running a sale on Steam across their range of titles so you can get 50% off GTA 5 right now making it $14.99.

If you don’t have a backup of your original GTA V save game data, then don’t worry;  I’ve linked to a hundred percent GTA 5 save file

All you need to do is download the save file and drop it into your GTA 5 save game folder, which is typically under C Drive.

Step 2 : Change the Settings

Once the games installed, launch the game usually on your desktop and change the following settings in the games menu before installing the VR mod.

First, go to settings > gamepad > targeting mode and turn it on to free aim. 

Then go to settings > camera and then change the following settings: 

  1. Allow independent camera modes.

  2. First-person head bobbing > off.

  3. First-person third-person cover > ON.

  4. First-person vehicle hood > off. 

And Now, exit GTA V and Make sure the game isn’t running and is completely closed, and now we can move on to the next step.

Step 3 : Install the GTA 5 VR Mod

Now, GTA 5 in VR is ready, and we just need to download the mod itself, you can download the GTA 5 VR Mod here. The download file will be a .rar file.

Once downloaded, copy the GTA 5 VR mod RAR file and navigate to your GTA installation folder, which is generally under C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steamapps\common\ Grand Theft Auto V and paste it into the main folder.

GTA V VR

Now you simply need to click on the .RAR file and select unpack here using WinRAR and go to GTA 5 in your Steam library, and right-click > select properties and ensure in the properties that use desktop game-theatre while steamvr is active is “unchecked”.

Now navigate to your GTA installation folder where we unpacked the mod previously and double-click on the real config.bat file and select high, medium or low settings based on your pc specs.

STEP 4: Setup Oculus Link The Wireless Method But Stable Gameplay

How to Use Oculus Link

Oculus Link enables Quest owners to play GTA 5 In VR with a VR-ready PC to use their Quest as a Rift.

***UPDATE: May 15th, 2020: Now you can use your Charging cable that is included with the Oculus quest as an Oculus link cable… Click here to jump to that section.

Method 2: VIRTUAL DESKTOP - The Wireless Method But Stable Gameplay Depends On Certain Factors

how to play Steam vr games on oculus quest wirelessly

You can play GTA 5 In VR without sacrificing quality and graphics fidelity and without any wires as its the BEST wireless method to play Steam VR games on the Oculus Quest. And that software is Virtual Desktop.

It only takes 5-10 minutes to get it all set up and this is the Ultimate, comprehensive, and Illustrated guide on How to Use Virtual Desktop to play Steam VR games on the Oculus Quest. 

You don’t have to jump from articles to articles and videos to videos, this is the one-stop post on Setting up Virtual Desktop properly without any errors. 

All the required software and resources links are included so you don’t need to worry about searching the software by yourself. So here’s the link to set up Virtual Desktop to Play Steam VR Games on Oculus Quest Wirelessly without any Hassle and Errors…

*Virtual Desktop Requirements*
  1. 5 GHz WiFi Network
  2. Connect your PC via Ethernet and not on WiFi, this enables faster data transfer without any Latency issues
  3. Try to play as close to your router as possible 
  4. Minimum PC Requirements: 

    Processor: Core i5-7500 / Ryzen 5 1600
    Memory: 12 GB RAM
    Graphics: GTX 1060 / RX 580 – 6GB VRAM

  5. You’ll also need to purchase and download the desired VR game that you wanted to play from Steam

The one question I get asked a lot is: Are there any differences in quality between using an Oculus Link cable and Virtual Desktop? Does either platform have an advantage over the other from a technical and visual standpoint? Obviously one is Wireless and the other one is Wired.

Does having an Oculus Link cable reduce the latency by a noticeable amount and how do the images compare visually? All of your Burning Questions are answered down below.

For those brand-new to playing PCVR or Steam VR games on the Oculus Quest, there are a couple of items you’ll need. One of the most important things is a VR-ready COMPUTER that satisfies the specs required for SteamVR game that you’re going to play on your Oculus Quest

OCULUS LINK vs VIRTUAL DESKTOP - Graphics and Performance - Oculus Quest Side By Side Comparison!

So The first thing I tested was the latency and I honestly didn’t notice any perceivable latency between Oculus Link and Virtual Desktop from a latency standpoint. The head tracking was quick and responsive in both and the Hand tracking worked flawlessly.

Now let’s talk about the Graphics and Image Quality on Oculus Link and Virtual Desktop. As you can see in the video embedded above, you can clearly see that the more muted colors on the left are actually of Oculus Link while the more Vibrant, Rich colors and deeper blacks are of Virtual Desktop

And let me clarify one thing that Oculus Link is still in beta which means that there is a good possibility that the final release of Oculus Link will look identical if not better to what we’re getting while using Virtual Desktop on the Oculus Quest

Coming to the Ease of Use: Virtual Desktop wins at the moment because the Oculus link requires 1-2 restarts before it starts working properly.

And one thing that the Oculus Link does WIN is the ease of setup. Setting up Oculus link is as simple as plugging and playing. While Virtual desktop requires some set-up time and side loading.

As far as price goes Virtual Desktop is $20, while the link cable is $79. Yes, you can get an off-brand cable but the best experience for me has always been with the official cable. 

Also as per update on May 15th, 2020: Now you can use your Charging cable that is included with the Oculus quest as an Oculus link cable. So this means that you can enjoy GTA 5 using Oculus Link Feature but without paying for the Link Cable as you can use your Quest Charging Cable as Link Cable. Basically it’s FREE!

Conclusion: What Should You Choose?

Oculus Link V/S Virtual Desktop

Your experience using Virtual Desktop to stream PCVR games on your Quest varies hugely depending on the game itself, your computer configuration, your router, and the physical format of your area.

Something as simple as a wall in between your Quest and your router might create chaos with the wifi signal from time to time, indicating you may experience stutters.

You can depend on Oculus Link to give you a strong experience with no latency till the end. It’s nearly just as good as playing on any kind of other PC Virtual Reality headset. Virtual Desktop, on the other hand, continues to be excellent from a technical standpoint, however, your experience will certainly depend on the speed of your internet connection.

If you have Amazing WiFi speed and there’s no distraction to block your connection between your Quest and WiFi, then you should definitely go for Virtual Desktop.

But If your WiFi doesn’t provide constant connection or there is some blockage, then you should you go for Oculus Link Cable for smooth VR gameplay without latency but make sure you have enough PC configuration to play Steam VR games directly on you Quest via Oculus Link. 

STEP 5: Other Additional Settings

Now, all we need to do is ensure that windows has your VR headset selected as the default audio source and launch oculus if you’re using an Oculus device if not just go to steamvr and we’re ready to play GTA 5 VR.

GTA 5 VR

Finally before you play GTA V VR I’d recommend using a wireless gamepad such as the Xbox 1s controller wireless controller or of course you can use a keyboard and mouse if you wish.

So that was it. That is how you can play GTA 5 in VR on Oculus Quest, which I think is super duper easy.

The GTA 5 Mod installation is itself so much easier. I know many GTA 5 and VR fans were waiting for TRUE VR mod support for GTA, and now, you finally can.

So, I hope you all understand it easily and quickly because of the illustrated images. If you have any suggestions on what topic we should write on, then the comments section of VR Marvelites is always open for the VR Army!
