Hi,

please, do you have more technical guide? Something like, description of the sensor, boundary angles for tracking.....

I noticed that the ceiling was not tracking (when look up).

Thanks

Michal

Hi Michal,

 

If there's insufficient level of detail like a blank wall (or low lighting) then you may come across some tracking issues but technically there isn't any limitation based on angles, so looking at ceiling or floor should work. If you're referring to the chaperone grid system to protect the user, it's currently 2m x 2m and you are centered inside it whenever placing the hmd on (using a proximity sensor).  The inside-out tracking is accomplished solely by the two cameras (and why lighting is important).

So, simple question, and I can't believe I'm asking it. How do you uninstall an application that you've installed?  Also is there a way to force-quit an application that is running? Surprised this isn't more intuitive generally.

 

Follow up question might be when is v 2.0 coming out for developers and if it addresses some of these issues?

We have some big demos coming up with the prototype and these little things are really bugging us. Thanks for your help!

uninstall using
adb uninstall
in the command line interface. If you're not familiar with adb, it is really worth learning more about it if you are working with Android systems such as the Focus.

 

You can quit any app running on the Focus by pressing the Home button.

right, I know there is an adb path to uninstall, but from within VR there doesn't seem to be a way to manage the content you've installed or purchased. Very odd since there isn't a companion app available yet for the phone, and all of the onboarding was done through VR, so It seems everything should be managed through the in-vr version of viveport. 

 

On the home button side of things I have exited the app we are developing with the UE4 WaveVR plugin, but it looks like it doesn't really exit, since launching it again sets us back to where we last were, rather than the beginning. perhaps I need an event listener from when the user goes home to force quite the application?

As with most Android devices you can go to settings->apps to stop or uninstall apps

The Home button will cause the onPause - on Resume lifecycle of the Android app. It's up to the app developer to decide how to handle these lifecycle events, i.e whether to resume or restart the activity and manage resources accordingly
