  • I'd add GZ3doom player for all the old Doom Hexen, etc. WAD files. Doom 2 plays great.
  • I owned the oculus dev kits and a cv1 on release day. The cv1 died the day I got Omni so I went out and bought a Vive... as an avid user of both purchase the Vive. The oculus is better in every way except tracking, but it is so much better you wil…
  • Here is one from a coworker of mine, nothing seems to scare him, but shows the entire game
  • Unfortunately VorpX is a necessary evil at this point. I dislike the program to no end as it is cumbersome and difficult to find a happy medium/compromise. However, AAA legacy titles utilizing Virtuix's keyboard compatibility are some of the grea…
  • lol at this thread I have posted videos of us using the Omni on my facebook page and have had several "larger" friends inquire about using it as a means to lose weight because it looks so fun. My concern is the embarrassment if they can't fit, as…
  • I have been an avid Oculus user since the DK1 days. The day my Omni arrived I got the orange light of death and Oculus stopped working, blank screen with audio. I tried everything in the forums, nothing, so contacted Oculus support. My cpu is not…
  • I'm actually in the same boat, so to my wife's delight, decided to rip out the carpet and put in wood floors. I am then gonna purchase those low friction pads for moving furniture and place those under the Omni. My house has one of those old huge …
  • I've spent so much time tweaking GTA V with VorpX I haven't spent much time on anything else. I had a friend of mine whom is a marathon runner try the Omni. She recently had a baby, wants to get back in shape, but can't leave the house without th…
  • I've had my Omni now for a couple of weeks, but wanted to really get acquainted with it before making an official review/tips tricks, which I will do soon. So far I have had about 10 people use it, and they all say the same thing, WOW! that is exha…
  • Hell, developers leaving the option for WSAD motion in new VR titles would be a great start! It is so frustrating we can't emulate to new motion controlled games simply because they quit offering the option for keyboard controls. There are 3 major…
  • Which game are you playing? If you are using keyboard emulation on a game it will tend to be a little jumpy. You can adjust the sensitivity in the Omni ap, but it is the nature of not having native support. If you still experience this in TraVR T…
  • That is odd as I am backer 1050 and received my unit 2 weeks ago. I had emailed them 3 weeks ago as I felt I had missed an email and they responded same day and informed me I was in next batch, sure enough a few days later I got the shipment confir…
  • It is quiet here. Anyone received their Omni recently? Still eagerly awaiting mine. 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 c…
  • Virtuix kinda put the market in a bad spot. I have had several people come over and try the Omni and they all had a blast and want to buy one, however, the only people getting one will be us Kickstarters. My friends wife who never plays games real…
  • I think the bigger issue has been the shift away from WSAD and classic thumb stick controls. These controls have been the staple for FPS games for over 25 years, however; with the advent of motion controllers, companies stopped coding these functio…
  • Got the preparing to ship email Feb.22, backer #1050.
  • @RABID Thanks for the tip. I didn't play with it much, it worked so perfectly out of the box and we were excited to play. I made a similar video with Quake today, experimenting to make a list of good games that work really well with the Omni. Got…
  • For me occlusion is a huge concern, as I'm planning on creating room scale environments where the objects in real world coincide with the virtual ones, i.e. walls, barriers, etc. It was my reason for backing the Stem now what, over 2 years ago, lol…
  • @xxann5 Essentially you just described the Sixense Stem system, a series of Stems (pucks) that can be attached to anything and tracked real time, AND it does not suffer from occlusion since it is tracked magnetically. Only drawback is price, but I …
  • @Sponge101 Thanks, and it was a blast the old games work well because they are simple, few buttons and no text to read or puzzles. Just run and gun.. I have the entire room set up for my Omni, just need it to ship, lol. Anticipation is killer at t…
  • Well, while waiting for one of the pathfinders to give Omni impressions, I started experimenting with setting up FPS games in anticipation of my own treadmill. Here is Brutal Doom being played while standing in full 360 degrees using the Top Shot E…
  • @Tomek While running the Oculus compatibility tool, my Asus I7 motherboard failed usb 3.0 compatibility. I found this odd as my 3.0 ports work perfectly for everything else. To be on the safe side I went ahead and ordered a pci-e card (Inateck Su…
  • By doing some creative digging on Newegg, Amazon, and Ebay I managed to piece together: p9x79 i7 3820 o/c 4.0 ghz 16 gig ram 240 gb ssd drive GTX 970 4 GB I purchased this for around $630 a few months ago. It scores over 10,000 on 3D Mark, Oculus r…
  • What intrigues me is that everyone talks about how awesome the Vive 15x15 room scale is, however in testing the Stem is accurate to 15 feet from the base station. This means if the base is in the middle of the room you would have 25-30 square feet …
  • Apologies, here is the updated link.. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dreadlocks/ghost-theory?ref=nav_search And I messaged the devs and they plan to back several VR peripherals including eye trecking and feel real masks. Their next update wil…
  • The Sixense Stem is not dead. They recently passed FCC testing and are planning to ship around April. They released the demos they have been showcasing and made them work with Razer Hydra. It actually works REALLY WELL, check it out.
  • Anybody else feel like this while waiting for the Oculus pre-order countdown?
  • This is how you order, definitely no flinching. youtube.com/watch?v=ITpj30_mjmg
