Virt-A-Mate is a sandbox VR game where it boasts some amazing animation. The characters are realistic and the scenes are very artistic but they are not always available on the initial download so here’s how to install Virt-A-Mate Scenes.
There are three common ways to download scenes in Virt-A-Mate and if you follow the right steps, they are easy to do.
It is a game that is still under development but you can already play it. The available version is enough for you to get started in the virtual reality world.
The game includes character customization, animation, audio support, environment use, and others. It allows you to control characters by “possessing” them and making them do whatever you want.
By possessing the characters, you get to be in their body, which means you are going to see everything in First Person Perspective and control them via VR headset controllers.
The characters are well-developed and are very life-like. The sounds, however, still need development and the good thing is it is currently being done.
If you want to get into this game, then take the first step and download the game. Read on this post and see how to install the game and the scenes via various methods.
How To Install Virt-A-Mate Program
Since the game is still under development, you will encounter some versions that are out of date so you need to make sure that you download the latest version from their Patreon page.
The download will come in as a zip file so you will be needing some extractions to do. Once you have downloaded the program, extract the zip file to a non-protected folder.
Do not install or extract the Virt-A-Mate program in a protected folder such as “Program Files” or “Program Files (x86)”.
Once you have extracted the zip file, open it and you will see multiple files. There will be various *.bat files.
Look for the batch file that fits your system. For example, if you are using a PC, find the right batch file for Desktop Mode.
You will also find other formats for running the game in VR mode as well as other formats that you can run via different operating systems.
Make sure that you still have the post that contains your Supporter Key. Run the game on your desktop and then enter the key.
Loading Your Virt-A-Mate Scene
Almost all content is hosted on Mega. you will need to set up a Mega account that allows you to download content from other users and sync it with your game.
You can download the community-created files by importing them into your Mega account. You may also download the files directly and store them in your archives.
Download from MEGA
MEGA is a content sharer that allows creators and users to exchange folders which makes this the easiest method to install the content.
1. Go to the Mega page and find the content that you want.
2. Select Import to (M). This will let you install the content that you want by transferring the file on your desktop.
3. Simply click ‘Import’ if you are prompted by the page. This will automatically transfer the file to your Mega directory.
4. Open your Mega directory and select all the files that you want. You can then proceed to download it to your local Mega archive.
5. Once you have downloaded the files to your local Mega archive, you will have three kinds of files that you can use. Follow these steps below to see how.
File Type 1. .vac files
.vac Files are the most common formats from Mega and they are basically a zip file that Virt-A-Mate installed with an extension package for portability.
First step: Place the downloaded .vac file into your Virt-A-Mate /Saves/scenes folder. This will automatically allow all .vac files to create a subfolder within the /Saves/scenes.
This will help in organizing the folders for you to easily manage the content.
Second step: Allow Virt-A-Mate to load the .vac file and this will let the game extract the content to a directory where the .vac file is located. It will copy some assets and display them outside of the Saves folder for quick access.
After the initial loading of the content, you will find a folder in the same directory that contains a .json file which you can click and use to load a scene faster in the future since it would not need extraction anymore.
Third step: If you choose to, you can safely delete the .vac file from your Saves folder to make space for other content.
File Type 2. .7z and .rar Files
Check your archive for the downloaded files. If it says .7z or .rar file, you will need another way to extract the packages that the developers have included.
First step. Find the Saves folder within the Mega archive. This is a folder that sometimes says Import, Assess, Extras, or Custom.
Second Step. Drag the Saves folder and drop it into the main Virt-A-Mate folder. This will automatically allow Virt-A-Mate to sort the files and put all content in the right directory.
Third Step. You can now load the new scenes or characters by launching the game via VR or Desktop Mode.
File Type 3. Folders
Since MEGA allows transfer and download of whole folders, there will be chances that the content comes in a folder and it is downloaded as a whole.
You can follow the same instructions for the .7z and .rar files if you happen to encounter content that came in as a folder.
Load The Scenes
You can now proceed to fire up Virt-A-Mate in either VR mode or Desktop mode and from there, it will be easy to navigate.
Select the Load Scene button and select the file that you have extracted. It will automatically load in the game and you can enjoy it then.
It seems complicated when you read the instructions here but if you follow accordingly, it is really not that hard.
So look for the right file and the right steps and enjoy as many content as you want with Virt-A-Mate.
