usicco said: using F8 to re-center works for me and I'm use the Vive
odes said: On public or patron build?
odes said: Have you really downloaded and installed the WIP version? It sounds like you're still using the public build. Are the new characters available?
david said: Yeah it seems to work now, though the POV is now pretty wanked, and the fps in the headset is still a bit much. Wish there was a reset position feature and it would just guide you to that like before. Hopefully the next time it gets updated it can fix those issues.
odes said: F8 recenter doesn't seem to work with Vive, but you can still use quick calibration in the steam overlay settings.
odes said: Can't say I'm too impressed by the Vive so far though. It feels a lot heavier than my Oculus, and the headtracking is noticeably worse.
I guess it could still be improved on by adding a teleport mechanic like in "The Gallery" (where you can rotate the playspace before you teleport) but other than that it works VERY well once you have the play area aligned with the game world and containing the characters (still not using injectors, performance was very good with my GTX 980).
Looking forward to trying new characters/places in VR.

When you launch the installer, what version does it say it's installing?
Did you get it working?
edit: ...but now VR doesn't work... which was the whole reason I donated in the first place.... I thought it was the only way to access that.
Not sure if you're using it with revive or not, but you shouldn't do that.
Anyone with a Vive here that can help david out?
To increase FPS you can remove Ambient occlusion in graphics settings.
p.s. I hear oculus is getting room-scale VR soon, should be exciting.
Can't say I'm too impressed by the Vive so far though. It feels a lot heavier than my Oculus, and the headtracking is noticeably worse. That comes as a bit of a surprise to me considering how much more setup and devices it requires in order to function.
The Vive`s tracking is flawless and as usicco has said try other games to see if its still unresponsive....The Lab on Steam is free so maybe give that a go if you haven't already
To see if its the Yiff game that is missing frames and going into re-projection do the following..
On steam VR right click and choose "Settings"...then click on "Performance"....tick "Notify In Headset" (a little window will appear in the headset when you miss frames)...also...at the bottom you will see "Allow reprojection" this schould be ticked.....THEN click "Display Frame Timing" (A window will appear..look to the bottom of this window and click "Show In Headset".....Now when you have the headset on you should see the frame timing window glued to the side of one of the vive wands and if you have missed frames they will appear as red spikes on the chart glued to the Wand so you will have a better idea if you`re missing frames.
I would also try this with The Lab..if you are having regular missed frames in the Lab with all the demo`s then something is wrong.
If you are NOT missing frames in The Lab but ARE missing frames in the Yiff game at least you know its not you`re setup that's got a problem and then you can work toward optimizing the game so it hits 90fps as all games for VR should be doing.
For help troubleshooting you`re Vive setup go to https://www.reddit.com/r/Vive/ a wealth of information there.
Also I have noticed a some people say that shadows in games can give poor performance so maybe try turn those off if you have them on.
hope this helps some
Yeah, that is most likely the issue as my machine doesn't quite meet the required specs. I kind of prefer working on a outdated rig because then I'm forced to always be concerned about performance.
I suppose Oculus has the upper hand on systems that can't produce enough frames right now thanks to ATW, but hearing it comes to Vive as well makes me happy.
Last time I tried it with my vive I had to recalibrate room setup and the recenter didn't work.
I would also be a lot better if you could use your controllers for example to pick up the characters and move them or when you in pov your VR body would move when your head moves to a different position.
