  1. Confirmed I'm able to access all npm-registry.vive.com packages
  2. The NPM server is still down, can you please provide a separate link from which to manually download the Vive Wave Unity XR plugin, native plugin and essence plugin? @Tony PH Lin @JustinVive
  3. @Dario our main concern is limiting the coding rework when targeting Wave vs Oculus and potentially others, so we're trying to limit as much as possible any WAVE specific code....obviously there is inevitably rework between devices/platforms, but I was wondering if there is a list somewhere that clearly enumerates the specific assets, scripts, etc deployed by the Essence plugin
  4. If you need beta developers for OpenXR + Vive Focus/Focus Plus please contact us asap! We're also working on the NVIDIA XR Cloud SDK for Vive Focus Plus and would be very interested in developing on OpenXR for unity instead of Unity XR plugins as is the current strategy https://hub.vive.com/storage/docs/zh-cn/UnityXR/UnityXRPackages.html
  5. Oculus, Valve, Microsoft, Unity and Unreal are all moving towards the Khronos Group standard of OpenXR (not to be confused with Valve's API for SteamVR called OpenVR). We are in the middle of a big decision on where to take our 3 year old OG focus wave sdk for unity based VR apps for the Focus. Staying pat on legacy wave sdk for unity is a bad option as it will be deprecated, moving to one of the 3 plugin options for Wave SDK for  Unity XR will also require us to rework our code again when they port to OpenXR. I realize there is no rework free path, but what is Vive's plan for OpenXR when it comes to your Wave SDK for Unity developers (not referring to Cosmos as I've seen @Dario's posts in the other Vive Cosmos centric forums). Thoughts? Guidance? Looking for an alpha preview guinea pig? https://uploadvr.com/microsoft-openxr-unity/ https://developer.oculus.com/blog/openxr-for-oculus/?locale=en_US https://uploadvr.com/valve-openxr-steamvr-beta/#:~:text=“With OpenXR%2C for the first,a statement from Valve explains.&text=“SteamVR's OpenXR implementation supports D3D11,on both Windows and Linux. https://venturebeat.com/2020/10/23/unity-promises-initial-openxr-platform-support-by-the-end-of-2020/
  6. What about the Vive Wave SDK, will OpenXR support be coming for the Focus, Focus Plus and Focus Plus VNext(april?)?
  7. Back in release 2.1.8 we were told to make sure to handle BOTH the new Alias1_Trigger and Alias1_Digital_Trigger in our code. In Wave SDK 3.1.6 the new WaveVR_Button List was introduced but for some reason the DigitalTrigger is commented out. Our app needs to run on BOTH focus and focus plus. Can someone help us figure out what buttons map to which enum values as of 3.1.6 See the Assets\WaveVR\Scripts\WaveVR_ButtonList from the latest unitypackage for Wave SDK 3.1.16: @Cotta @Tony PH Lin
  8. @VibrantNebula @JustinVive @Dario and team. It would be really great if your could publish a Best Practices Guide on Player/Build/Preferences settings in Unity. It would be VERY helpful understanding how WAVE SDK changes might be impacted by the version of unity you might be running. For instance, having a better understanding of how Unity 2019.x player settings impact the performance of our Wave VR 3.1.6 SDK based app on a Vive Focus/Plus would be EXTREMELY helpful...THoughts? Here's ours if its helpful. We are running Unity 2019.3.6f1 + Wave SDK 3.1.6 and we develop for BOTH Vive focus and vive focus using latest build of Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise as our editor. @Tony PH Lin @Cotta
  9. @JustinVive, is it recommended that we import upgrades one at a time or can we upgrade our app from 2.0.37 to 3.0.2? What is the recommendation?
  10. but assuming we do migrate our client apps to use Vive Input Utility, what about IVRModuleDeviceState.serialNumber as mentioned in the reply above this?
  11. We can confirm 's findings as well! FPS jumped by 50-100% by changing only this quality setting...
  12. Is there a way to get the serial number for Vive Focus devices not yet running VIU? Possibly from WVR_GetParameters? Something like this? char pchString[256] = "SerialNumber";char retString[256] = { 0 };uint32_t size;//Get the result from device servicesize = WVR_GetParameters(WVR_DeviceType_HMD, pchString, retString, 256); https://hub.vive.com/storage/app/doc/en-us/WVR_GetParameters.html
  13. We create apps based on Wave SDK for the Vive Focus/Focus Plus and we are working with Enterprise clients. These apps CANNOT show up on a public store. VivePort Enterprise was teased back in 2017 but since then we have not been able to find any guidance for Enterprise Customers wanting to deploy to a private app store (like Google Play Private Apps). Please provide guidance. We are also wondering if the device management system will eventually provide the ability to remotely push apps to a given device. At present it only allows you to push the SteamVR runtime. Thoughts?
  14. My understanding from the Leap Motion team is that their new Mobile Android SDK is not complete and has taken a backstep to other projects (north star and others). If anyone has heard differently let me know we would love to leverage leap motion on the original Vive Focus as we wait on the Focus Plus. According to an engineer at Leap motion back in July 2018, "Unfortunately, the Vive Focus is a mobile based headset so our current drivers will not work for it. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes. If you have any remaining questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask." Their website says their Android Mobile SDK it still under development. https://developer.leapmotion.com/android#107

  16. ,Can you provide a use case. This intrigues me as we have an existing HTC Vive Focus application that we want to add multiplayer capability to and I'm interested in this hybrid example you discussed...
  17. Has anyone authored a pros/cons of leveraging this approach? Performance issues? Every abstraction layer always comes with a price, I'm just curious of what the considerations are? For instance, will VIU continue to be updated to support Vive Cosmos as well?
  18. Are there plans to create a more portable solution that does not require PCIE slots? Also, is there a best practices guide on configuring a wireless network for maximum performance with the adapter?
  19. Sergio, perhaps you might be interested in collaborating on a B2B solution to this that is capable of cross platform deployment? A lot of people wanting to go to both oculus go and vive focus in our network.
  20. We are developing private applications for an enterprise customer and do not want to place the app out on the public viveport store. Since January 2017 there has been talk of an Enterprise Dedicated App Store for scenarios like this. We need to deploy to ~30 Vive Focus headsets and I would like to know what the prescriptive guidance is for this scenario. Looking for capabilities akin to Google Play Private Apps. We looked into device management thinking that would allow us the ability to deploy from a central host to 1-N clients on the same network (as would be the case with a corporate intranet) but that appears to only allow you to deploy STEAMVR and not custom applications. THoughts?
  21. While slack CAN be just a "chat platform", its massive 3rd party integrations with just about every productivity app you can think of take it way beyond a simple messaging platform. I do agree that a generic chat experience is useless, but IMHO that's why slack is such an excellent tool for collaboration, sharing and productivity. I can only speak from my experience, which has been overwhelmingly positive in utilizing slack not only for customer support (we integrate it with our helpdesk system and it works fantastic) but also for project management and developer community collab. I absolutely respect the need for a strong forum and helpdesk style support but without strong tagging and information architecture forums can be just as bad as a poorly designed chat platform experience. I tend to use what is easiest and as a software architect and developer who works on multiple concerns, I find messaging platforms that are channel based to be much more efficient in my daily work then email and for me, its a core driver behind my decisions to deploy slack both within and externally to our company. That is just one man's experience though.
  22. Plus it promotes excellent collaboration on subprojects, code sharing, etc...
  23. I believe the lack of activity has more to do with the medium of communication than the intent of the users who belong to the forum. Take Amazon Sumerian for instance, they opened up a slack dedicated to folks developing for that platform and its fantastic.
