Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

PUSH!

Are you guys and girls getting anywhere further with a unity press play and stream to vive solution?

not forgeting, that the controller should also work when simulating from Unity to Vive Focus.

Can you just imagine how easy and plesent development would be having a feature like that?

That sounds wonderful.

When will this magic happen? Maybe as a Christmas present for all of us?

Thank you. I am really looking forward to this functionality

Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

Any ETA, of this simulator magic coming soon?

That would be a great slogan and a wonderful revolution in VR Development…...

Like this:

Coming soon!  - To a Focus near you.

I would love to hear that soon from you guys and girls.

Hi @eagleeyez,

 

Thanks for your awesome slogan for promotion.

Currently we're planning to have a major upgrade for SDK with new features, performance enhancements and including bug fixed. 

The schedule is planned in March.

So, we are now about in the middle of March. Is the new update still coming this month?
Thank you.

Hi @eagleeyez ,

Thanks.

Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

Is the new SDK update still on course for during GDC @Tony PH Lin? Will this also support single-pass rendering in Unity, as mentioned elsewhere?

 

Thanks :cathappy:

Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

Ok, I see now that the new SDK is available since March 18th. Thanks for letting us know about that.

Now the question is how do we use the Simulator? I see no difference. Is the press play in unity editor and then view in the vive focus function in this SDK as promissed in earlier posts?

Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

I cannot get instant preview simulator working!

I have tried just about every version of Unity but I just get errors and Unity hangs. I even have to kill Unity with the task manager.

 

Clicking on install simulator APK gives me done in the console but nothing happens on the focus. The focus is connected and recognised by windows. I would have expected with the new focus firmware that you had already added simulator to the standard software.

 

I have been patient waiting for this very important functionality and do hope we get this solved.

As said in previous posts, this is going to be a game changer in development for anybody developing in VR.

 

Here is a new slogan in Unity for you:

 

Press Play – Save your day!

 

Please help us get it working. Reply times here are just too slow and Oculus quest release is getting closer. But I suspect they will not have an instant preview function like focus, if it works.

Thank you.

 

Btw. Do not just concentrate now on commercial but also community. As the focus is actually a very good consumer device if promoted in the right way. If live preview would work, then it will also be an invaluable development device for everyone regardless for what you develop.

 

For VR / AR to be fun you need some things.

  1. Easy to play with like Lego bricks (Playmaker)
  2. Adaptability and extendibility (factorability )
  3. Plug and Play and not Plug and Pray.
  4. Click to Play and not click and pray.
  5. It has to feel like magic.
  6. Focus with fingers not just hands
  7. Join Stadia
  8. AR color pass through cameras
  9. Button to leave headset active not just sensor
  10. Playmaker integration (for designers and not just programmers)
  11. You can actually leave out 6dof controllers if fingers could work on the focus.

Hi @eagleeyez ,

 

We clarified sometimes failure issue might happen or hang in Unity, and please give a try first if the patch we provide can resolve your problem.

Please send back logs if it's still failure on your side.

Thanks for your assistant.

 

Best regards,

Tony

Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

Hi, what should I do with the patch? should I just place it in Unity?

Vive Staff

Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

Hi @eagleeyez ,

 

Sorry for your inconvience.

Please use the this latest patch (filename: patch_0403.zip) to unzip the file and replace related files inside our SDK. (Ignore previous file on my last post)

Thanks.

Re: How do I use the WaveVR simulator?

1. I deleted the waveVR from unity

2. I then added your patch to Unity and reimported waveVR sdk 3.0.2

3. I could still not install simulator from Unity, so I installed it manually with adb

4. simulator is running, just a yellow window

5. pressing play in Unity does nothing in the focus

6. in Unity under XR settings, Virtual reallity SDK is called Split(missing from build)

 

So why is instant preview not working?

A step by step instruction on how to get this working would be very helpful.

Thannk you.

Hi,

Please import SDK first and then replace the files in the zip file.

 

And then please follow the steps below:
