My Bad.   I have yet to be force-fed the 1.37 version, and was going on a report from a friend who confused the drivers.  I really don't want to lose my ability to see 3D Vision games in my Rift.  (I need 3D Vision, not SBS video.)…

NO, I'm blaming the correct company- Oculus.

Oculus just unilaterally destroyed the only reason I use my Rift. Functionality that I use and is the only reason I have one was just destroyed because they provide zero…
  • Why are you forcing an NVidia driver update? After this forced update, anyone interested in viewing 3D content in BigScreen or Virtual Desktop will be locked out. Why are you doing this?
  • As a data point, switching to Driver 391.35 using DDU fixed this BSOD for my system.
  • I get this BSOD as well.  Same NVidia driver version of 391.01.  Every time I enable the Beta, I get BSOD. Corrupted my hard drive, and needed to restore from backup.
  • More details.   When the Windows Update KB4015549 (April Rollup) is installed, that locks out the KB3033929 required update.  The KB3033929 is apparently included as part of the rollup, but is no longer visible.   It is both installed so that manu…
  • So, it doesn't look like the installer supports Win7 at all anymore, not directly anyway.  I just did a bare-metal install of Windows 7, and let it go through the normal update cycle through Windows Update, not using the rollup. I still get the b…
  • Just noting that this is a still a problem today.   Was testing a full reinstall as required by Oculus Support, and ran into this again.  This is for a fresh install of Win7 about a month ago. One tidbit that might be related is that I used the s…
  • One last silly problem.  Even after launching, the installer fails with the message about requiring the Platform Update and a security fix.  Naturally both of those are already installed as proven by downloading the msi and running them. You need t…
  • Well it's still sad that Oculus software is so poorly written, but I found the answer to the System.NotSupportedException crash above. You need to install an optional OS update.  KB2565063. If it's required by the software, it should check, this i…
  • Well, this is still a problem today.  Sigh.  Disappointed. Trying to install latest runtime.  Installer crashes at launch with the same exception above. This is on completely clean Windows 7 install with all patches, and nvidia driver 378.49. Oc…
  • I have to add my voice that Oculus Support is totally useless.  To be clear, they are unfailing polite, and they definitely mean well.  They just have no ability whatsoever at actually solving any problems. I'm not sure that's their fault however,…
  • Another documentation bug I just ran into is found in the ovr_capi_d3d.h header, function ovr_CreateTextureSwapChainDX. The function signature no longer includes the bindFlags parameter, which the documentation is describing.

I don't have experience with those adapters, so I can't make a good recommendation.  You might want to search the 3D Vision forums. I know I've read other people using splitters and adapters for their Surround setups.  IIRC, there a…
  • I've done an external screen via DP, plus the internal laptop monitor, plus either Rift or Vive all at once, and it works without any glitches.  Typically I use the laptop monitor as the non-player watcher view, because this laptop is ginormous. Yo…
  • No reason to do it at present.  Essentially nothing in VR uses SLI at present.  NVidia Funhouse, Steam VR performance test, and Elite Dangerous are the only ones I know of. Also for a laptop, I assume you might be looking at something like a Sager,…
  • Just following up that Support solved the problem for me.  Made a support ticket with details on change of email address, and received an email with the code today. I've previously had terrible experiences with support, but this time they nailed it…

Nope, not done yet.  But I've done software professionally for years and years.  One thing I know for sure- it's going to work just fine on my machine, and blow up on one of my beta-testers machines. Probably the one in the country …
  • I'm also looking for this key. Unity Pro includes Performance Reporting, and 40% off Asset Kits.  Both of which are valuable to me.
  • Ah, OK, I see that my posts were deleted without comment or PM. My fundamental question was what sort of forum you want to encourage.  I see people breaking the forum rules and wondered why it is allowed and even rewarded. In particular I see:   0…
  • Nope, sorry, that card isn't going to be good enough.  It's not even close. Take a look at this website that compares video cards:  http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=Radeon+R9+360 You can see that R9 360 is much, much lower than the mi…
  • Sorry ProfesssorTroy, that wasn't directed at you, but thank you for the info.   I'm actually curious how Zenbane managed to get Poster of the Week.  If you look at his last 50 posts, he doesn't do anything except bait and taunt people.  No help, n…
  • I'm confused.  Are people actually getting "poster of the week" status simply for volume of posts?  Not quality? It looks to me like spamming and trolling are being rewarded, and that is a poor approach. Oculus, you don't need reinvent …

Another way to look at it is that Mr. Wilde came to the forum unbelievably frustrated with his experience. He didn't swear, he didn't threaten, he just expressed his absolute displeasure with Oculus. And you said "You deserve …
  • Please let us know if you receive it.   They sent the same email to me,  
 Hey Bryan, Thanks for following up, I'm so sorry for the delayed response on our part. We ran into a little delay but we've processed the new Rift cable for you …

Don't be a dick.  That was uncalled for.
  • What's with the abusive forced updates?   I needed to use my system to demo, and wasn't allowed to do anything until I did the update.  The system was working fine 5 hours before that, and I really, really needed to not be blocked. The apps are al…
    in New firmware? Comment by bo3b July 2016
  • No possible way that the power supply is a problem on a 2 month old system from MSI.  That is not overclocked. People, use the calculator, stop guessing- http://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator The fact that it runs properly some times, es…
  • Yes, that weird angle at the end of the connector is deliberate.  Nothing else will fit in the headset even though it's nothing special outside of this plastic.  Plus the built in USB+power connection. Serious case of Apple envy here.  And complete…
