  • It should be more than fine for development but it sounds like you also want to do testing. It depends too heavily on the complexity of your scene and experience. Whether or not that hardware is enough is entirely up to you.
  • It isn't the firmware that might brick a device, it's the write process. Though, most devices these days have a backup. That said, I've never had an issue with the update process but I'll try to pass along what I've noticed. I think I've only see…
  • (Quote) I'm confused by how you worded this. Are you talking about a schema or XML? I agree that a schema is not for data storage. Yet, XML is for data storage. (Quote) That's not exactly correct. JSON has many uses beyond AJAX. Furthermore, …
  • (Quote) I mostly agree with Arowx. That would mean deserializing every game asset when you load an area into memory. Plus it would require a huge amount of additional storage because you're limiting the usable bytes to the available character set…
  • (Quote) You only need one (depending on which port you want to use). However, that DisplayPort adapter won't work. First, are you sure you have mini DisplayPort and not full sized DisplayPort on your card? Second, you need a female HDMI connecti…
  • (Quote) Yes; it uses JIT compilation. It's the most obvious for cross-platform development but unfortunately, a virtual machine also adds additional resource overhead. However, if that's what you want, just code in Java or .NET. There's no need …
  • DK2 includes everything here (plus a cleaning cloth and another pair of lenses with a different focus). For cables/adapters, it comes with:* A custom HDMI/USB cable * A 3.5mm "sync" cable connected between the camera and custom cable box …
  • Programming languages are nothing more than human readable command syntax. In the end, everything is translated into machine code (either by the compiler or JIT). VR is essentially an I/O device and I don't see any benefit for a cross platform &qu…
  • I believe it was muted automatically. They muted 30 minutes of the keynote beginning with the intermission between keynotes where music was playing. The muting then carried into 15 minutes of his speech. Still, I'm sure Oculus used music that is …
  • (Quote) You mean, "an ant under a magnifying glass".
  • Okay, I wasn't at my computer when I replied earlier. Now that I am, I can confirm my driver also says 0.0.1.5 dated 7/17. However, if you go to Driver Details and click on "OCUSBVID.sys", you can see the file is version 0.0.1.6. I'm gu…
  • It sounds like you have both drivers installed but the device is currently running on the old one. Personally, I wanted as clean of an install as possible so this is what I did:* I uninstalled the devices from Device Manager. * Then, I unplugged th…
  • KelvinNZ, are you saying you ordered on May 18th? I ordered on March 24th and mine arrived less than a week ago. Before I received a shipping notification, there were people in Europe that ordered three weeks after me that were already shipping. …
  • (Quote) It's a pain. I open the Rift Display Mode configuration and temporarily switch to Extend Desktop right before I'm about to run software. I leave the Rift Display Mode configuration open because it will stay on the desktop that it was orig…

  • (Quote) Is the Rift setup as your primary monitor? The software may be trying to sync with your primary monitor refresh rate.

  • (Quote) :lol: Yes, that too.
  • (Quote) (Quote) Ready to showcase is not "available". 4K will be available soon enough. It's not available now, it wasn't available when DK2 was designed and production started. It will likely still be too expensive by the time CV1 is …
  • It's not really a new idea. The Chinese made ANTVR HMD had a "Glance Window". I wouldn't recommend getting one though. (Image)
  • Yes, it acts like a standard USB hub. I have not personally tried it; I don't own USB headsets.
  • (Quote) It absolutely is. Windows 8 does not need a touch screen interface. It works seamlessly with a mouse. That is a fact. Claiming that it is only good for tablets and phones is misinformation. (Quote) That is simply not correct. I own 34…
  • In my opinion: Titans of Space for an impressive opportunity to look around. Proton Pulse for an actual game experience.
  • (Quote) (Quote) I'm so tired of seeing this misinformation. I have been using Windows 8 since beta on my primary home machine without a touch screen. It works wonderfully with a mouse. I also own a Surface Pro where I still prefer to use a BT mo…
  • (Quote) You should have better expectations. Have you never engineered a software solution that depends on a third party that isn't finished yet? That is pretty standard when working on custom solutions with partners. (Quote) The Rift is literally…
  • (Quote) As previously said, Oculus has stated for some time now that CV1 will be a superior product that addresses many of the items you've listed. I also wanted to add that 4K mobile screens are not currently available. More importantly, there ar…
  • (Quote) I ordered more than two weeks before you on March 24th. Mine was just shipped out yesterday evening. I think it's a little premature to say you were forgotten.
  • (Quote) Oh man, my family had the TRS-80 too. But we had the first model CoCo (RadioShack branded) that you hooked up to your TV. We must have gotten it around '82. I didn't get my own computer until around '87. I got the parts from my dad's 802…
  • Not to upset you more, davidjc, but... http://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/comments/2djd2b/mexico_april_10_1344_pdt_is_now_ready/ Someone posted that an April 10th order to Mexico has progressed to ready.
  • Extremely curious what this pertains to and what kind of performance increase we're talking about. It's exciting to think that DK2 could have further decreased lag and offer more VR comfort. Could it possibly resolve reported issues with judder as…
  • (Quote) I saw that, but you don't confirm if that means using DK2 in extended mode without cloning.
  • (Quote) Completely. It sounds like you've been fighting with it already. :D So, how are people like CymaticBruce recording output? Extended mode without cloning?
