    I'm backer 1139, and my waybill number email arrived on Feb 24th, and my Omni arrived on March 3rd. It sucks if you're a backer number lower than me and you haven't seen it yet. Hope they get back to you and get your unit enroute to you soon! I just spent all day today setting up the office to make room for the Omni, I still need to setup the Vive in the office too I usually have my roomspace setup in the garage, after I move the two cars out of it, it'll be nice to not have to move my PC to the garage to VR.

    I agree. As backer 1050 I received mine last week. I expected to see a flood of comments, questions, suggestions, even youtube videos, but thus far it has been crickets. Show off your Omni's people lol. Half of the fun of a project like this is the community involvement.

    You'll see some content I'm sure. Most gamers don't do the youtube video/twitch thing, I've been making a bunch of content and videos for it just haven't posted any of them. I've also been really focused on making mods and a new program that does what the Omni connect should do but doesn't. (aka acting as a binding software to eliminate the 3rd controller issue some games have with vive and omni, as well as emulate vive controllers)

    Depends on your definition of progress... haven't had time to code in about a week now. I've got 2 separate softwares one that successfully is able to emulate the Vive controls and I've got another capable of binding so the computer sees the Vive and Omni as one unit but having issues getting these to work together so far it's just one or the other. I'm finally moving tomorrow to the new house so I should be able to pickup work on programming again in a week or so.

    I'll be sharing out my software once I finish it ^.^ assuming Virtuix team doesn't beat me to it.

    cool, if the vive and touch joysticks can be emulated then every game with locomotion should work B)

    Ya the emulation factor was easy as I've said on older posts, idk why Omni connect doesn't support it yet. It took me all of 2 weeks to get that to work. It's not super smoothed out yet and has issues like it stops working once if you touch the Vive touch pad but it's still in alpha testing phase. That will be fixed with V2 of the software but I haven't had time perfect it with this move.

    It's just a simple matter of having the computer view the Omni and Vive as controllers with a set of functions then having the program bind those functions to a virtual keyboard so Vive and touch joysticks do their own thing but the computer sees them as WASD then Map the Omni movements to WASD as well (basically KB mode) and the program then views the Omni movements sees them as WASD and knows that WASD is also imputed from the movement pads on the Vive/touch controller. This causes the software to think you are touching the movement pads and the game registers it as the movement pads badda bing badda boom. I may of explained it a tad sloppy as I'm texting this from my phone while laying in bed haha. Hope this helps understand the software and hopefully helps Virtuix programmers too. I'm hoping Omni connect gets this function as I wanna see the Omni flourish and not fail due to lax functions and programming.
