    Oculus Rift Support?

    The Oculus Rift is a new HMD that is coming out, Are you guys going to support it? Second life is and that will make it the truest virtual world if you guys don't support a virtual reality headset as well.

    Haha I was just wondering when someone would post about this.. But seriously maybe once the consumer version of the oculus rift arrives in 2014 then maybe MA can implement support for it.. atm the developer version ain't that "special".

    If mindark is smart.. they need to start working on implementing this right now! Just imagine.. A virtual world with Omni + Oculus rift with a Real cash economy! Just the sound of that puts a smile on mah face

    Yeah. You can literally run bad.

    9 years I've been playing EU, you still are new. By looking through your posts in other threads and seeing how you attack nearly everyone, I can tell already you won't last long in EU.

    Start adding support for a headset that might be in production in a couple years and might get bought by a handful of players... or stop adding new features and concentrate on fixing all of the obvious code defects that effect the entire customer base and make them look like a bunch of clowns.

    Well, I think it's obvious what a competent organization would do.

    ...so I suspect that we'll see some half-assed, defect-laden support for these goggles if/when they make it to market.

    It's technically out now, at least the dev kit is, and a consumer version should be out next year. The code for it is simple and basically comes with the dev kit atm, implementation would take less time than Gangnam style.

    Uhhh... Really? And what are you basing that on? Also, Occulus support might need cry3 for a start and nobody knows where we are on that.

    I think it could be interesting, but I doubt it'd be more then a little gimmicky for the use of games such as these, so it depends if it should be a priority for the development team, really. I understand how it'd be fun with purely social games, but I can't imagine spending hours hunting, mining or doing anything except standing around in a town with those goggles on.

    Another thing is, it apparently runs with a very low resolution. I'm not sure how well that'd work with EU.

    That being said Im looking forward to actually trying out the Oculus when it comes out. Looks really funny, and in games made especially for the purpose of working with these I think it'd be great. Some of the reaction-videos are hilarious. Like the girl in this video said: "When this thing hits the sex-market, booyah!"

    I really hope someone makes a good horrorgame to go with it. Imagine the first Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Fear or Amnesia!

    There are two types of people in the world.
    There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And there are those who say: this glass is half empty.
    The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

    I will be getting my dev kit in June\July

    I really can't wait to test it for myself and work with it. I'm still skeptical since you know, reasons.


    The thing though is, EU is not you're most lively action packed game, and so it could prove to perhaps be lacking in imemersion in order to be fantastic with game like EU.

    Who knows, I think the consumer edition will probably be compatible with more or less all kinds of games, so only time will tell that for sure.

    Wether or not it will give you a whoa effect or not, is probably more the question, for Entropia.
