Oculus has been on top of its duties in releasing regular updates for their Rift platform. The company has been making sure that they can deliver new functions that community members are wanting out of the VR headset. The latest update 1.15 comes with many new bells and whistles including performance upgrades for roomscale support.

Release 1.15

  • Features:
    • Improved 360° tracking and roomscale support.
      • We further improved sensor setup for multi-sensor configurations.
      • 360° tracking with three sensors is now fully supported for sitting, standing, and roomscale play modes.
      • 360° tracking with two sensors is still experimental. Learn more in our help center.
    • When possible, the Oculus app will now warn you when your Rift headset’s HDMI is not plugged into the most appropriate GPU – both during setup and under Settings > Devices.
    • You’ll now see a notification when antivirus software blocked the installation of an app.
    • Improved presentation of health and safety information.
      • The new user experience now includes a short video about Rift and Touch safety. After watching the video, you can choose to display health and safety reminders when entering VR.
      • You can watch the video at any time, under Settings > General in the Oculus app.
  • Bug-fixes:
    • You can once again enter your height with zero inches when setting the floor position in VR.

The company no longer lists roomscale with three sensors and experimental. They have removed that piece of wording, which shows their gradual progression of implementing a sound experience. The company has been working up to this moment and now shows confidence in their solution. “360° tracking with three sensors is now fully supported for sitting, standing, and roomscale play modes,” according to the update notes. However, the company still lists tracking with two sensors as experimental.

This is great news for everyone using the Oculus Rift today. Make sure to update and check out the new features today.
