ALVR - Air Light VR
Stream VR games from your PC to your headset via Wi-Fi.
ALVR uses technologies like Asynchronous Timewarp and Fixed Foveated Rendering for a smoother experience.
Most of the games that run on SteamVR or Oculus Software (using Revive) should work with ALVR.
This is a fork of ALVR.
