I don't know how the various VR ecosystems work together, but the "fractured" state of the VR world definitely adds a serious level of complexity right now. Hopefully, as with most other technologies, as the VR world matures the various ecosystems will either live or die, or work out how to make it easier to work together.cvvs wrote: ↑Sun May 03, 2020 3:24 amHello everybody
The framework of a program like xcsoar in condor with my occulus rift still does not work in spite of numerous update of occulus.
is there really a system so that it works well and that we no longer have this sacred black screen or much more often the orange circle and exclamation mark.
I watch ovrdrop, but a priori it does not work if you do not go through steam.
And I don't really understand how to launch condor from steam afterwards
complicated to have xcsoar during our virtual flight.
all good idea I would be interested in testing it so that it is stable
I use a cheap Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) headset (Lenovo Explorer), so I have zero personal experience with the other major platforms. So far I haven't found anything I can't make work, regardless of platform. Though some things have definitely required a ton of "work" to figure out the various software requirements..and sometimes complete hacks. I'm better with computers and software than I am with soaring.
Having said all that: you don't launch Condor from Steam. How do you normally start Condor? It appears to be designed for Oculus.
I don't launch Condor from Steam but, since I don't have an Oculus headset, I can't just run Condor directly either. I use a tool called Revive to start Condor. Revive is apparently just a tool to allow games designed for Oculus to be played on WMR headsets. https://github.com/LibreVR/Revive/wiki
Because you have Oculus, and Condor is designed for it, you don't need Revive but maybe this helps you in putting together the puzzle for your situation. Is there a tool that allows the use of SteamVR programs with Oculus?
Alternately have a look at this about using OVRDrop with Oculus games. https://steamcommunity.com/games/586210 ... 2088744691
Good luck! VR amplified my enjoyment of Condor 10-fold! Having XCSoar in Condor added enough satisfaction that, for me at least, it was worth the project of figuring how to make it work.
