I'm going slightly on the edge of this topic, but since you asked about Oculus, XP and VRK:

I have two outstanding problems: one causing the sim to freeze and another just a little annoying, but the most is working.

Awesome tool, AMVI_Rider! Had to buy a Wacom tablet just for this :)

 

Working great so far :thumbup: I have a few issues with assigning buttons but I'll test a bit more and report back.

Ah, there is a Discord, great - I missed that somehow. Thanks for telling!

And sorry, I have not updated my sig. I'm using a HP Reverb now.

I have a problem with "book marks". Every time when I touch "add bookmark" with my pen, It adds 20 same book marks and I have to delete 19 book marks.

 

 

 

Any setting solution, that a touch only add 1 book mark? I have a Huion H1060P...special drivers from VRK Tool.

It was happening in the very first versions, but I fixed it long time ago ... It may be a regression. I will test it tonight as soon as I get home!

Have you changed anything on the system? Did you upgrade VRK?

The code to emulate clicks with the pen time hasn't change since very long time. Now I have a change to be tested which should improve this behavior.

Shouldn't. It's a long shot, but it may be due to some "configuration" stored in the tablet which has been erased when you disconnected the USB...

 

Anyway, so far so good.

Version 1.2.3.05 is out

 

Most important news is the official release of the Oculus native support!

This and other features required a deep rework of some common parts and some bugs may arise also for SteamVR users, so, please let me know if something is broken.

Stoopid question, figure it would be best to ask here. So I'm an Oculus user, and I stream. I like the idea of the kneeboard being seen on the screen. With the Oculus support, I don't see a way to add the VRK to the stream. So my question, is OpenVR the only plugin for OBS which uses SteamVR the solution? Or is there something for Oculus users that I haven't stumbled across yet?

 

Sorry for an off topic post, but I think someone may know in this thread.

 

Have a happy New Year all!

You can User Oculus Mirror which is the equivalent of the SteamVR mirroring function. You can find it in:

 

C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-diagnostics\OculusMirror.exe

 

Frankly I don't know why they are confining this tool in the "dignostic" domain.

I have problem with app starting. Below is my log.

I have PC with Win 10.

After first installation and run, app worked correct. The problem started, when I tried set keyboard shortcuts. I tried bind key with two modifiers (Yes, I readed manual). When I clicked OK, application was crashed. From this moment i have this problem.

Reinstallation doesn't help. What should I do?

Sorry for my language :)

If you are using the "Reload last layout" just go to

C:\Users\<your_username>\VRK

and remove any .vrkl file you find.

 

Otherwise you have to clear the configuration in

C:\Users\<your_username>\AppData\Local\Vrkneeboard\<whatever>\1.2.3.5\user.config

 

But please keep anything you remove so I can check what is happening later.

It worked. I cleaned value in:

setting name="InputConfig"

 

Unfortunately, I did not save the deleted value.

No worries, it's enough to point me in the right direction :thumbup:

I think I know what is causing the problem!

A Request for Advice

 

Hey guys,

 

Just about grab a graphics tablet for use with the app - thought I’d ask a bit of advice from existing users before I make the final choice.

 

I’m pretty much leaning toward one of the Wacom units - mainly as I tend to see less reports of issues from these and they don’t require a custom driver.

 

Shortlist is:

 

Wacom Intuos S

Wacom Intuos M

Wacom One

 

Wacom Intuos S: This is the front runner as its overall size seems the best fit for a kneeboard. My only concern is the useable ‘drawing' space - Any users of this one out there that find the space a bit too small, and would sooner be using a larger tablet for this reason?

 

Wacom Intuos M: Same sort of question as above but reversed - Anyone finding the drawing space adequate, but the overall size too bulky? I have a custom rig/cockpit with throttle and other controls quite snug either side so spacing here is potential issue if it’s too bulky.

 

Wacom One: I know this doesn’t appear on the supported list, but any users out there that have tested/or using this model? The overall size and fact that the usable area covers a lot more of the surface seems like a win-win. Only potential rub is the lack of function buttons. How is it working with gestures in lieu of those controls? Easy, awkward, or not worth the compromise of losing dedicated hotkeys?

 

Also, not that I’m 100% sold on any of the above - if there are any other options that someone can highly recommend I’m all ears. My priorities are mainly good form factor that doesn't feel like an A4 clipboard strapped to my thigh and reliability/performance on the software side of things.

 

Thanks to all in advance, much appreciated,

Brick.

I’m pretty much leaning toward one of the Wacom units - mainly as I tend to see less reports of issues from these and they don’t require a custom driver.

 

Feeling of Wacoms is slightly superior, but Huion price is appealing and performance is at par.

"Issues" statistics are mostly at the same level, but it's almost always a matter of "being used to the device".

The custom driver is nothing dangerous. If you know the matter it is a WinUSB derivative and the binaries are provided and signed by MS.

Anyway, I don't want to push any choice ... it's just to avoid misconceptions.

 

Wacom Intuos S: This is the front runner as its overall size seems the best fit for a kneeboard. My only concern is the useable ‘drawing' space - Any users of this one out there that find the space a bit too small, and would sooner be using a larger tablet for this reason?

 

The usable space is why I left my Intuos S to workplace note taking (and WinTab debugging).

 

 

Wacom Intuos M: Same sort of question as above but reversed - Anyone finding the drawing space adequate, but the overall size too bulky? I have a custom rig/cockpit with throttle and other controls quite snug either side so spacing here is potential issue if it’s too bulky.

 

Never tried, but it got pretty good feedback. It seems the best choice. My suggestion is to try with a cardboard mock-up and see by yourself.

 

Wacom One: I know this doesn’t appear on the supported list, but any users out there that have tested/or using this model? The overall size and fact that the usable area covers a lot more of the surface seems like a win-win. Only potential rub is the lack of function buttons. How is it working with gestures in lieu of those controls? Easy, awkward, or not worth the compromise of losing dedicated hotkeys?

 

Function buttons are extremely useful and most of the time better than gestures. Moreover gestures don't cover the full set of functions performed by buttons. An alternative is combining the One and another controller.

I have the Intuos S and enjoy it. Perfect size for my kneeboard that I have. I have it secured to the kneeboard via velcro, so I can remove it if the need arises. Regarding the smaller work area, I don't find my self searching for the sweet spot too often. I am aware of the issue, and have gotten accustomed to it.
