Windows update breaking Reverb with PointCTRL.

Still working the issue, but now with "Profesional" help, thanks Subsonic, your the man. Los is letting me borrow his Reverb, so hopefully we will have this sorted by the end of the weekend.

 

As a heads up, this will probably delay this groups production and invoices a few days.

 

Thanks for understanding, I am surprised it took a year for Windows to break something.

PointCTRL v2 IPR (In Progress Report)     Miles

So I just bought this thing out of curiosity of what a $299.00USD VR headset would be like. All I can say is, Holy Crap I like it. Much Clearer and better build quality than the Rift S, and because of

Hi FireCat,

 

dwpenney and I Jemi has the same number ( 345 ) ?

 

Well spotted jemi and thanks for the heads up. I have now corrected my glaring error I can only apologise to all concerned.

 

I put it down to having mislaid my glasses, due to loss of memory, brought about by old age.

 

If I have missed anything or made a mistake anywhere else I know our vigilant community will steer me in the right direction and thank and ask forgiveness in advance.

 

Now. Why am I writing this again?

Will this be turned into a production quality unit at some point, or will it remain as 3D printed parts?

Hi James, If your getting the circle for set-up mode, may have the old firmware, The circle had been replaced, and calibration task separated. Are you using voice assist? You don't need a PHD in ancient hieroglyphics to tell the mode your in anymore.

While ABS 3d printed parts don't have the best fit and finish right off the printer, and do require a lot of post processing time, they are very functional, durable, and allow complex shapes that are difficult to injection mold.

 

That being said, it takes us way to much time to manufacture PointCTRL units, We build almost everything in house, even populating and re-flowing the FCU PCBs.

 

I will be switching to a Low pressure over-moulding injection process soon that will reduce the size of the FCU's, and hopefully reduce manufacturing time.

 

Thanks for the great question.

That must be the problem I thought I had downloaded the firmware and installed it properly. I'll give it another try. Is there a video for the new calibration procedure?

Thanks for you help I know your busy.

The Voice Assist Takes you through the steps. Let me know when your going trying it out again, and we will meet on discord and use voice and screen share as you go through the steps. Getting people up and running with their PointCTRLs is what I enjoy the most with this project.

Wow thanks very much I'll most likely get a chance to try it tomorrow. I appreciate your support I'll try and prepare ahead of time. I have your discord channel is there a way to ping you on it?

Just shoot me a DM on Discord with a time when you think may be on, and I will keep the speaker on.

I am getting a bit confused, how do I tell if the HMS is on? There is a green light on all the time. I know if I use a FMC button the red light flashes but the green light is on all the time.

 

Hey DD,

Unfortunately the colors on some of the boards are not standard. I used a standard piggyback back board to get things rolling and they switched things up a bit. I am moving to a dedicated board soon.

 

But to answer you question, if the HMS is plugged in, its running. That is usually the green light. The red light flashes when the HMS is transmitting data (cursor position or mouse button states) to your PC. The left button on the HMS will deactivate the HMS but it stays powered on.

 

When you press the left button on the HMS to deactivate the HMS, the cursor will move to the center of the screen and then off to the upper left corner. It will do the opposite when you reactive it with the same button.

 

A lot of people plug PointCTRL into a switched USB Hub to easily turn it on and off.

 

I hope that helps,

 

Miles

I would recommend just starting with voice assist alone on the desktop to get familiar with things. You can go through the menus and move the cursors around. Just do a factory reset when your done and ready to calibrate.
