Tuscany On The Nvidia Shield

I just saw this video on You Tube. I think it is the first one I have seen where the Oculus Rift is running on the Shield. I wish he hit the space bar so we could see what frame rate he was getting. Nevertheless, it looks like the perfect mobile plat...

The Perfect Screen Cleaner

As i'm sure anyone whose had to clean the screen after removing lens' a few times will know, its a pain. Because the openings are small and hard to really reach into to wipe properly, I was never quite satisfied after putting the lens back on. There ...

FEAR 2 ALMOST working in Rift. Help!

Hey guys, I got FEAR 2 running now in the rift, but 2 issues remain.The first and by far the most important issue, the sizes/feel/scale is wrong. Everything looks gigantic in the game, and the sense of depth isnt great as a result. I already changed ...

Somthing very odd has happened since I've used my rift

I've been playing First Person Shooter games since Wolfenstein 3D came out. I've been playing the Halo series since day one on the original xbox. When given the option, I always, ALWAYS used and inverted up/down thumbstick.There's never been a questi...

Many games work in Tridef but not in Rift mode. Why?

This doesn't make sense. There are countless ga,es that run in tridef in sbs mode (bioshock infinite, fear 2, etc) but they don't run if you set tridef to "oculus rift mode". I mean, if they can get a ga,e to work I tridef, how hard can it be to simp...

How do I skip SHOCT calibration if I already know my IPD?

The instructions for SHOCT calibrating on Vireo do not work. For one, how can one tell where the exact cent of one's eye is to line up a red line to it? Secondly, half of the buttons do nothing (ie, pressing the F buttons needed to move convergence d...

List of image resolutions reported by the Rift hardware?

I couldn't find a list anywhere of all the resolution modes that the computer (Mac in my case) sees as supported by the Rift dev kit. That would be a useful list, for people to compare and find resolutions in common with their mirrored or split displ...

How do games/apps handle different users?

Question for those who tried the HD Rift

I have a question for you guys, I notice on the dev Rift that the 3d effect is not perfect; the background is flat and the only 3d I feel is when object are close to my eyes, it feels like the 3d on a imax movie. I wonder if it is the screendoor effe...

Quicky first impressions

Physical Customization of the Rift

I've seen a lot of cool faceplate/visor "mods" for lack of a better term. Seems like almost every picture of someone's personal dev kit, they have googly eyes, or symbols, or something on that faceplate. I realize most of us here are techies and/or h...

Packing my rift (URGENT)

Is the oculus case supposed to close smoothly without any force. In my case i need to apply pressure to close the last centimeter.

Can somebody turn this into a Rift demo? Can I?

Hello all. I think this has great potential as a rift ride demo. Can someone make this ride with the song playing throughout? I have zero unity pro experience, but I'm a fast learner (if I had all the cardboard objects, I would be able to animate thi...
