Hi, I (and I am sure many other users) would like to know what the current status of NOLO software updates, drivers, and firmware currently is, and how far away we actually are from a next release.
I (and many others) backed NOLO in the original Kickstarter, and I fully understand that when I backed it it may be a while before the software was quite there, and it would be a little rough at first, and I still think NOLO is super cool tech and do not regret backing it.
Though NOLO hardware was first shipped to backers in late June, and we are now in mid October with little noticeable advancements to the software (It being reportedly worse for some people), and my VR experience still being the same rough mess it was on day one (which is still kind of cool, but not quite good enough). The promise was that untethered VR was being developed (and hopefully still is) in partnership with the Riftcat team, and they were working to make the overall experience better, but that is not yet finished (The Beta is unusable for me), with a (currently) 2 week old post from the Riftcat team saying that most of the work is done, and is relying on a new firmware update from you guys, before it can be released. So at least an ETA on that update would be good. The other major problem is with the touchpad mapping (though hopefully fixed in upcoming firmware), which straight up doesn't work in some games (causes constant backwards movement).
Other than that it would be great if the NOLO team could be a lot more open with it's users about software/firmware updates, and let us know if there are any delays in the schedule and what is causing them. I am a developer and excited to get into some VR development using NOLO, but have mostly been unable to due to the current sub-par experience provided, and starting to think that NOLO will be super-succeeded by newer (and possibly more affordable) technology before it has even had a chance to work properly.
