SDK hooks for entering the matrix/cyberspace

Similar things have already been discussed, but I thought I'd give my 2 cents.To enhance the feeling of entering another world while simultaneously reducing disorientation it would be helpful if the SDK included the capability for an event (a user de...

I know this soulds like a self serving (take pitty on me) thread... but i am a techie at heart, and am just too excited about the rift. Anyways, here is the story. I got some extra cash for my Bday, and historically, if I just save it for later, some...

Using the Rift with TriDef or similar software?

Is it possible to use the rift with TriDef 3D using something like the OculusOverlay to warp the image? Or will it not be possible to get a converging image since the Rift is partial overlap where as most 3D drivers like TriDef use full overlap? This...

3D reversal!?

A bit of an odd question but say you took the regular left and right images displayed in the Oculus and switched them, so the left eye is seeing the right eye's image and vice-versa. What kind of visual effect would this create?More of curiosity than...

Why the Rift is superior for FPS games...

I've been playing better than I ever have at TF2. I've never dominated like this before and I think I've figured out why.When the mouse crosshair is not fixed to camera movement, aiming feels a lot more like it does when you're not gaming. Being able...

Improvements for future versions.

Having had my rift now for a few days time for some constructive feedback. I'll ignore the obvious improvements like a better screen and positional tracking. We all know it's needed, you know it's needed, no point in wasting time on that. Also don't ...

Image isn't Crisp

My first impression thus far after messing around with team fortress is that the screen clarity isn't great. Even after changing all of the cups and adjusting the screen distance (I'm farsighted) it's hard to make out objects in the distance. Hopeful...
