  • @Naturally_Nick There is no "file". The hardware (1)* runs through some software (in the controller), called 'firmware' (2)*. That 'firmware' (2) talks to some other software called a 'driver'  (3)* (which lives on the PC or whatever is trying to …
  • I won't be available until 28th August to make further updates or read anything about any issues anyone might have. Doesn't seem that anyone is having non-"user error" related issues so far anyway. Good luck!
  • You can watch this for future NoloVR updates: https://github.com/NOLOVR/NOLO-Windows-SDK/tree/master/NOLOVR/NOLO_USBHID_SDK/bin The last update (yesterday) is unannounced and the comment is ( …
  • There is a new version of the iVRy SteamVR driver with NoloVR support, which you can download from: http://www.mediator-software.com/iVRy/iVRy_SteamVR_NoloVR.exe This driver adds support for future versions of the NoloVR USB-HID SDK. The (new) USB…
  • @Tux0Topo  Never use things like that, but thanks anyway!
  • Connect the Base station to power with the 3-headed adapter and leave it connected always. Use the other 2-heads of the adapter to charge the controllers when needed. Li batteries last longer if you don't discharge them fully, or store them either f…
  • I'm guessing you still have to run the desktop Riftcat app, right? In any case, that is either the Android SDK for Nolo or a port of the Linux reversed-engineered version that they're using (for wireless). All of this is talking about the new LYRobo…
  • @Tux0Topo  It is. I don't know too much about GearVR versions, so that's good info, thanks. I've got it to make iVRy a "proper" Oculus app so I can use the improved sensors, run it in high-framerate mode, not have to hack the software etc. …
  • Have you taken the plastic film off the bottom and front of the base unit? Can cause problems too...
  • Double click the power buttons (not at the same time) on both controllers while facing forward. High tech Dorothy version of clicking your heels (saying there's no place like home while you're doing this is optional)!
  • AFAIK, you need to modify the GearVR to plug anything else in while you are using it (at least on mine, the USB socket on the outside is just for taking a charger, it doesn't do comms, or output any power). You can disable the Oculus service to run …
  • @AxleB  I don't know anything about Riftcat, so can't help you there. AFAIK that software needs its own app running as well as Nolo app. For mine (and possibly any other that has updated to the new SDK) there is no need for any app running …
  • @bigelowed  What's really weird is the iPhone 5 onwards has very good (orientation) tracking for VR (best outside of GearVR on mobile that I've seen). They haven't (until now) made any noises about VR/AR, and there's not much interest/suppo…
  • @bigelowed It's more about Quality Of Experience, which is a driving philosophy at Apple. I don't get paid to fluff tech companies, they're all the same to me, but I can tell you FWIW from a developer's point of view (and to some degree user) their …
  • It turns out that LYRobotix would have to make a special cable/adapter for using NoloVR with a non-jailbroken iPhone. They would have to register with Apple's MFi program, and then make an adapter/cable that had a Lightning connector and a licensed …
  • @Failrunner It will benefit all SteamVR headsets using NoloVR (once their drivers are updated), as it effectively removes the need for the NoloVR PC software and lets the SteamVR driver talk to the NoloVR hardware directly. In the case of HDK2, I'…
  • @nravan90  @Failrunner  Not soon enough. Don't have any time to work on it now until late August. Should be releasing around mid-September all going well. All testing positions are filled.
  • @Failrunner Or the GearVR version of iVRy to be released... https://twitter.com/iVRy_VR/status/888393864813346816
  • So, I had a chance to try NoloVR connected directly to the iPhone with the iPhone camera adapter (actually I had to use the old 30-pin camera adapter that I have with a 30-pin to Lightning adapter, so two adapters plus the USB cable). The iPhone dis…
  • @tony  What are you referring to by "this"? The LYRobotix driver team? If so, it's hard to say, because they don't really speak English, and so the communications are done by 2 developers. So, at least 2 developers, maybe more, doesn't real…
  • Anyone wanting to try out NoloVR with an iPhone and SteamVR, can find the iVRy iOS app here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ivry/id1210129937
  • @tony  Are you referring to using it with iVRy or Trinus? If you haven't tried iVRy you can find it on the app store here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ivry/id1210129937 If you were referring to using it with iVRy, I would appreciate …
  • This in from the LYRobotix driver development team regards "ceiling mode": 'For the 360-degree program, I will now provide 360-degree dll plug-in, and do not want to join the software, because do not want users to think that NOLO 360 degrees i…
  • This SDK is definitely the way forward for SteamVR support for NoloVR. The older SDK (that requires PC software) will probably not improve much now (it does not have a good design in any case, so no loss there), and will most likely be left around f…
  • This in from the LYRobotix driver development team regards IMU values (the current USB-HID SDK provides simulated values, which results in jitter): "the real value that provided by the hardware is being tested. I will finish testing as soon as poss…
  • There is a new version of the iVRy SteamVR driver with NoloVR support, which you can download from: http://www.mediator-software.com/iVRy/iVRy_SteamVR_NoloVR.exe This driver fixes some usability issues with NoloVR. There is a new setting you can…
  • @lestysone  What are you hoping to achieve with your constant complaining? If you want help with it, there are people here who will help you if you let them. If you don't want help, take the money people are offering you and move on. If you…
  • @GoDzViper ; Did you try the driver from yesterday? Have you got iTunes installed? Can you transfer a track to your phone with iTunes? If that works but not USB on iVRy it would be extremely unusual. PS. It is much easier for someone to give t…
  • "Ceiling mode" is a hack, which can't get around the basic fact that the NoloVR setup is a 180° tracking solution which is best used seated. You're going to get much more satisfactory results if you take those limitations into consideration and adju…
  • @Ghostmij17  If you want some SteamVR/Oculus titles to work you need to fake a base station (which my software and apparently Riftcat does). You can put the base station where you think it is in the "virtual world", or wherever you like. Ca…
