Fixed: Shadows, Hud, etc

Download this zip file & extract the contents into the directory that contains the game's exe file.

Additional Notes:

-Press & hold the 'Z' key to bring all icons near screen depth (to make them easier to click on)

Also, the 2D HUD elements can be toggled on / off. The button for this can be configured in the game menu (by default, CTRL + H).

Petition: Please allow mod support for VR Direct. [3DMIGOTO/HELIXMOD]

    VR Direct was announced during the GAME 24 event introducing the 900 series. The big news for VR/3D Vision users is that users of Oculus Rift and perhaps other VR devices in future will be able to experience 3D vision games. To people who are not aware.... we have a very strong mod scene. Most games do not have support of 3D technologies. However through wrappers such as Helix-mod / 3dmigoto we are able to implement support into other games.
    Very little is known about VR Direct. Its possible that 3dmigoto/helixmod will work. However, just in case let's all be preemptive and lend our voice to the cause. We are a hard working community that works hard to make sure that many titles that would are otherwise unnoticed get the support you need. Many titles that we added near flawless support include ...Skyrim, Mirror's Edge, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite, along with hundreds of other titles which you can check out in youtube video channel down below.
