[Arcade PC] VR Vortek 3 System (Global VR)

Recommended Posts

Clients – Global VR – Nytric Ltd.

Here are several Vortek V3 arcade dumps that I managed to extract from an ISO file, some run with/without controls, and some crash.

This was a VR arcade system made by Global VR, and one of the first arcade games they ever made. Sadly you will not be able to play this with an actual headset (yet?)

Some of these games are already on Emuline (the Beach Head games, but the ones on this page I fixed because some were broken) but I managed to find several more. Here are the available games and their status, as well as download links:

The links are encrypted with base64, use base64decode.org to decode the links.

Currently most of the games don't have controls and one doesn't boot at all. If anyone would like to make a fixed version of these with control support as well as fix Incoming so it boots I will update this page with the fixed version.

Beach Head 2000, Beach Head 2002, and Beach Head: Desert War were all posted to Emuline by Hunteazd2021, I just updated his versions by adding the missing Global VR DLLs which fixed Beach Head 2002 and Desert War not booting at all.

There are a bunch of other Vortek games, these are all the Vortek V3 ones. Currently, the only Vortek V1/V2 games we have are SiN, (which is available to play with TeknoParrot), and Heavy Gear Extreme (completely unplayable and does not boot)

Please mirror these as much as possible!

@witherzombie222 - do you have the original Global VR Discs / ISOs? I have an original Vortek V3 machine and would love it if I could acquire these and see what assistance I can provide from real hardware.
