okay Ravarcade,
Let me say again thank you for all your great work and innovations for BAM!!
WELL DONE!!

I want to thank the community for putting up with all my crazy ideas.
I have been overly addicted to Future Pinball and need to take a bit of break for a couple of months.....

Sorry if I am leaving some things up in the air....
Rav, Wild, George, Miownkhan, blue et all , I thank you for allowing me to be part of things.

anyways bla bla bla...I have a new innovation that already works splendidly thanks to Rav's
OpenVR support and I thought I would share this one last thing before I step back for a little whiile

Ready..... :D
Drum Roll...... :o

Future pinball and open VR work very well using a Samsung Galaxy 7 and Samsung VR GEAR !!!!

That's right I just played blue's Playboy xse table wirelessly and with acceptable frame rate. And by the way blue the flipper mod is amazing (George we need to learn this ;)

So we don't need to spend thousands on a VR ready computer + occulus or vive !!!

I jumped in a swimming pool with my iphone 5 and bricked it.... and fortunately I was due for a phone upgrade....spent $190 to get a Samsung Galaxy 7 and $140 on Samsung VR gear and then downloaded some apps and with a little fiddling....future pinball VRwireleessly in high definition !!!


What you need:
1. Android phone
2minimum of Windows 7 + nvidia GeForce Graphics
3.and this App : VRidge on the phone and RiftCat client on your pc
https://riftcat.com/vridge
4.Future Pinball BAM open VR
5.A Steam account for Steam VR
6.Some kind of headset ,cardboard or otherwise, (they are just now implementing Samsung VR Gear and so far so good) the image is great...but I can't use the buttons yet

use keyboard or what ever you normally use for controls...

I'll respond briefly to those interest, but I really do need to step back for a little while...

Regards,

bob :shock:

Both Steam VR and VRidge (Rift Cat) have been updated fairly recently and at least for my
setup, BAM VR works wonderfully currently

Really wonderful. But a smartphone give you not the feeling like htc vive, rift or PSVR. Is there someting I do wrong, because the feeling of vr is at my smartphones very weak.
PSVR is my favourite, because I call it my own.

Skinooe !!!

Great to hear from you!

Can PSVR run BAM VR?

Samsung S7 plus Samsung VR gear works great for me

What are you using for your phone?
