There’s a new version of the game available for testing for those of you on the Steam store. Just right-click on the “OrbusVR” entry in your Steam library, chose the “Properties…” option. Then go to the Betas tab and choose “beta” from the drop-down. If you wish to opt out of the beta at any time, just choose “Opt out” from the drop down.
This build features a major overhaul of our overall system to enable a new chunking-and-loading system for the game. Especially slower computers and those with non-SSD hard drives should see large gains in performance and load times when transitioning between zones. Note that right now you may notice kind of obvious places where the elements “pop in”, we will work on getting that smoothed out but for now we’re just testing to make sure this leads to significant performance improvements before we invest more time into it.
In addition, this new build has full support for the Oculus 2.0 Dash system, so you can pin windows from Oculus Dash in-game if you are on a Rift.
If you get a chance I would appreciate you downloading this version and testing it out to see what kind of performance improvements you see with it. Also please let me know if you encounter any new issues you haven’t had before.
