About this mod

Adds haptic effects for "The Forest VR" in the bhaptics Tactsuit models and Tactosy for arms and hands. Effects include heartbeat on low health, bumping into things, chopping, diving, freezing, burning, rain, and getting hit. This mod only works for the VR version of the game.

Permissions and credits
Where can I get the gear?

To buy the suit and arms, visit the bhaptics shop:

  • MelonLoader  https://melonwiki.xyz/
    If the game does not start up after MelonLoader installation, you can try using version 0.5.7, which seems to work more reliably.


  • Download and install MelonLoader (and the requirements for it if needed) into the game's directory. By default, this will be "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Forest\TheForestVR.exe", you might have to adjust the first part of the path.
  • Download and extract the zip file of this mod into the "Mods" subdirectory of your game directory (see above).
  • Run the script "Unstrip_system_libraries.bat" in the Mods directory. You might be warned by Windows that it is of unknown origin, then you will have to click on "More info" and "Run anyways". If you are unsure what it does, you can just open the script in an editor and take a look. It simply copies the flatscreen versions of some system libraries into the VR game, because they were hollowed out for it, and MelonLoader won't launch this way.
  • You are done, just start the bhaptics Player and then the game how you normally would.

If you have any issues or suggestions, the best way to contact me is to ping me on the bhaptics Discord: https://discord.gg/tHB8StRX
