  • @steffen1980 - I decided to check out your website, and while I'm certain there is other information on it, the only thing I could see was the idiot wearing a gear VR or other phone based VR headset while riding an actual bicycle outside. About the …
  • Nice. I've actually taken my omni apart to clear enough space to handle the room scale of the various Vive games I've finally gotten access to. It's still pretty cramped (barely have 2mx2m of free space) but I'm still exploring if I can get a long e…
  • @travis1409 - I'm certainly not one to put graphics over gameplay, but I'm simply not satisfied with the current headsets just yet. It still feels like I have a thin piece of cloth covering my eyes, and even just doubling the dpi might be enough to …
  • @Wilfman - You can run just as naturally in the Omni. That's why my main focus was on how well crouching and jumping would work. It looks like it should work better, but I'm not 100% convinced yet. From what I understand, 8 feet should be enough to …
  • I'm disappointed that he didn't try REALLY crouching or jumping, but this single video still looks FAR better than anything I've seen from katVR before. I'd like to know how tall he is and how much he weighs, and I'd also like to see how the KatVR l…
  • Deluxe Audio Headstrap - If I had been a Vive exclusive user, I probably would just accept the annoying headstrap as just something that comes with VR, but having worked with the DK2, I know that VR doesn't have to be that unstable. I actually don't…
  • @CheezWiz - Google searching... Rifts - 2nd page, Rift - 5th result, Oculus - 1st result.
  • I highly doubt I'm going to find any game formatted for Arcade use to appeal to my own preferences, but it would be rather shameless of Virtuix to not provide kickstarters and pre-orders who will still be receiving units access to that software. The…
  • @xain - I get where you're coming from, but it's not really much different than saying you need a Kleenex or a Band-aid, or that you're wearing Levis or a pair of Nikes. Oculus may be the company and Rift may be the product, but the only product Ocu…
  • @whopperman88 - are you just comparing touch to basic VR, or are you comparing it against the Vive system? I absolutely agree that touch controls and some sort of room to actually move around in make a huge impact on the sense of immersion, almost t…
  • I'm waiting for this to be used for an Omni competitor. The trackers are a bit clunky to be attached to your feet, but it does look plausible as POD alternatives. Virtuix should be looking at supplying Omni shells (no software or circuitry, MAYBE ad…
  • @Slopey - that's exactly what I've been saying all along, and why I am rapidly becoming disillusioned with the potential of the Omni. they wont even have the devs to build the games in the first place. @GreyAcumen - If any developer has a game they…
  • More than the whole international issue, this is what really concerns me. If Virtuix cuts out ALL personal sales on the Omni, forget having a userbase for devs to build games for, they wont even have the devs to build the games in the first place. …
  • The pads on the Vive can be recognized as joysticks as well. The gamepad doesn't matter, it's how the game is designed to recognize inputs. If a game is designed to recognize joysticks for movement, then there's a better chance that the Omni will be…
  • Well, in lieu of having already verified any actual games, I'll just list out what I did buy for this Christmas sale. So far most of my time has been taken up just playing Altspace and The Lab, and a few free demos. Thrill of the Fight (Boxing Simul…
  • @xxann5 - I have VoEC VR, so I'll add it to my todo list for Vive games to try out.
  • @SutekiB - Good point. It's been a while since I ever ran into it, but I do think there is some sort of cap on how much money you can send each month. I had assumed that this wouldn't be the case for a business like Virtuix, but I suppose there stil…
  • @Xain - You can set the Omni to keyboard mode so that it natively sends the respective 'wasd' button presses that would approximate your movement as you run on it. If you've ever played a game that properly supports analog movement and compared it t…
  • @Xain - it's not like they're giving away their real name or what email their paypal account is attached to, but when dealing with money, less info out in the general public the better. As for what the problem is, I can't help but wonder if a group…
  • @SutekiB - did something happen to Joystick emulation? I still haven't been able to get that X360CE program to work properly, but I'd still rather keep trying to get that or some alternative to work than not have analog movement. It's bad enough not…
  • Okay, I hadn't responded to you before since I couldn't be certain of my connection while using the Omni for the past several months. This Christmas, not only did I get a Vive, but I also got a powerline adapter, which has completely negated my past…
  • @SutekiB - With the steam winter sale up and running now, do you think you could slap together a quick list of VR games (and even non-VR games that have good VorpX support) available on steam that can be readily set up for joystick style support for…
  • @FR3D - You're perfectly welcome here. I'm certainly not going to blame you for being upset at Virtuix for reneging on promises they've been reiterating since day 1, way back 3 years ago, regardless of refunds. I'm just concerned that you may not be…
  • @FR3D - Frankly, I don't believe you, like literally doubting that you actually invested money in this. Maybe you've got the funds to just toss out hundreds of dollars at a whim, and maybe you're the type to believe anyone who can build a good looki…
  • @Admino - that doesn't make any sense unless the shoes/harness have been redesigned to have a scalable size adjustment. Are Arcades expected to run a Cinerella event where whomsoever the Virtuix shoes doth fit may playeth the VR game without verily …
  • @spaceoi - it's a commercial Omni. How the heck are you going to use an Omni commercially without an assortment of shoe and harness sizes, so that it fits the variety of people that might be using it? (and in fact having multiple sizes for each so t…
  • I know some people have gotten theirs already. I've seen people using them in altspace. @gleamingsands has gotten his and has a video of setting it up too
  • @steffen1980 - I don't even read your comments anymore, I just look at the time stamps on your post and notice that everything you do could have been added to your original post through editing. I also notice that you're severely clueless as to how…
  • @fenix777tj - yes, it's true that the guy writing that article is very upset. Yes, it's true that Virtuix has decided that it will not be able to handle the requirements of supporting the Omni in other countries, and therefor will be refunding inter…
  • @steffen1980 - My Omni has some minor issues, but I just needed a strap around one of the clamps to keep it from coming loose. Otherwise the tracking itself seems to be working fine. But I haven't been able to use my Omni for a while now because the…
