So, what's new in v1.5.2
You can check release notes here.
New OVR Portal release v1.5.2 will be coming with major firmware update v.901, with this new firmware our users' body movements will be captured way more precise than ever, this precision brings:
- even more real-time controls, extremely instant stop and play
- extremely good room-scale freedom, such as real walking in your VR play area and getting magazines over the floor to reload your VR gun, without any unintentional movement
in addition to this we changed the communication protocol between your system and the device and we called it dynamic communication.
Dynamic communication provides:
- more stable connectivity,
- increased range of communication
- and less battery usage
Although it is named as a minor release (as of v.1.5.2 rather than v1.6)
with the combination of the new firmware update, this is a major one.
We really suggest you update to the latest version as soon as possible.
Other than those major improvements mentioned above, we bring some other requested features as well.
Soft Calibration with button
Finally you don't need to turn off and on your device to calibrate. You can now calibrate your WalkOVR anytime even during your gameplay.
New Strafing and Walking methods
You can now strafe with your legs by extending your legs to your right or left. Pay attention to your strafing dead-zone parameter though, it needs to be arranged for your need.
and now you can use your WalkOVR with one of the VR treadmills in the market including our old ones 🙂 if you want more freedom with precise movements WalkOVR is your go-to solution, keep your mechanical structure but use WalkOVR. with this feature we've provided one of our Kickstarter promises as well.
a little reminder for Index User
Just to remind Index users are also able to play with WalkOVR now.
