@Daniel I have already write e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org - but since at least one week I don't receive an answer. Any other contact channels?
@Pascal They have already delivered and completed this campaign. If you need support, you should go to their website and contact them. (http://en.antvr.com)
Is AntVR still alive?
Since 2 months no updates, no reaction to emails, no reactions to comments here. This is really bad support from the manufacturer for such an expensive product!
So far only empty promises. Also for firmware updates: still not available
IMU for gun sensor please~~~~~~
Can someone please give me some english instructions on how to update the firmware of the headset and gun? The AntVR website is obviously useless to everyone since its in Chinese.
I've also tried downloading a few of the 'Hasbro My3D' apps from 'Apple's app store, which if they work at all (one seems to have problems rotating on the current OS), appear to work about as well on the 'TAWVR' too...
So a question here, have there been any firmware updates since this thing came out? I'm... kinda disappointed by the lack of support from @ANTVR. I expected them to be more active than this to their backers.
Hi @ANTVR, I got a message on January about some problem with my address, that I promptly answered, but got no response since then. Were you guys able to post my kit?
Hm... registration/login is offline (database error!)
Where are the firmware updates? Last update here was 1 month ago.
After many times of calibrating (gun and headset), I wasn't aible to make the gun and the headset look in the same direction. I still need to aim in a horizontal angle of around 90 degree to right!
By the way: English website is online now! :-)
AK will support SteamVR API ?
I disassembled headset and i deeply cleaned the lcd screen. Pixels dead were dust particles on the screen. Now i have 0 pixels dead
I'm waiting for the update that will make the headset working with ps3 3d games. For now it don't work the sreen shut off when i activate 3d mode in game and when switch the headset to 3d.
Is there good news about this issue ?
anyone interested in picking up the wireless unit?
ANY SUPPORT AVAILABLE HERE? NO WORKING ITEM NEED TO BE CHANGED
did anybody try IMU for gun on other games besides demo? antvr demo works but other first person shooter games don't work. http://antvr.freeforums.net/
IMU update for gun? when?
it works!!! thanks for handle update guys
@Luis Jorge Pérez Rebolleda
Do you have the handle connected both wireless and via cable? Of course that results in two characters ;-)
One character per connection.
hi, connecting handle alone on pc windows (wired or rf) it moves cursor like headset?
In my kit, sensor handle is ONLY detected by calibrate utility via wired. Via rf, sensor handle is not detected by calibrate utility. Testing keys of handle on a text file, each key results two or more caracters¿? I think handle of my kit is broken.
i installed it like in the instruction! its not my fist HMD - i have also DK2 , so i know what to do ;) but thanx for your help. The ANTVR is out of order. So i need Help from ANTVR service
@Marco Benkens, Did you connect both USB ports to the PC and HMDI cable to the graphic card HDMI port? (just double checking) Did you check your screen resolution setting? Is it showing up there as another monitor?
hello, i have a problem with my antvr set, if i connected it , there is no funktion of the antvr. only a black screen and win 7 dident find it as a "monitor" or something like that, i tried different software monitor configuration on my system , but the antvr will not be identified as an monitor.is there a service from your side, to have a look at it and can maybe fix it please? i connected all with the instruction, maybe a production error?
thanks guy will do that and check out site :)
@seyha if you want text to be readable go to http://antvr.freeforums.net/. you will find the anwer and also every vr headset or 3d tv you will get a headach for the first time. you will get used to 3 to 5 attempt days. by the way, thanks for telling me how to charge the gun. thanks shusharin andrey!
Seyha, Power button should be in the ON position. I only under this condition the battery has become charged. The battery is charged more than a day.
Thanks, for comment. I press that left side but still not work :( hmm not sure what to do now. I can see it power but no image come to lens.
@Shusharin yes for the top gun yes i can charge but for the handle (the one with controller part I charge with power on and off over 3 or 4 hours but still no power :(
I have the wireless version, too, but I don't have any problems using it.
I've set it up like stated in the manual. The only thing is: I don't get any image on the Headset.
Solution: press the button on the left side near the HDMI output on the gun.
It takes a few seconds after the button was pressed but then the image appears on the the HMD.
I got headache in the beginning, too. But after using it 3 or 4 times I got used to it and now I can play without getting headache or getting dizzy. I had the same using NVidia 3D Vision for the first time.
You should try adjusting the lenses if you always get a headache.
I have a wireless version. And I also can not make it work. Charging the battery can be only when the power button. First, the battery is not charged but the indicator showed that the battery goes. When I turned on the power button battery has become charged. Finally, the battery is fully charged.
Anyone have wireless version? I can't get wireless to work :( and my handle guy can't even charge too. when use wire picture not clear hard to read text. email email@example.com zero respond :( email kickstarter also no respond. using it about 5 min getting supper headache. sound like i wast 470$ for nothing :(. hmmm any help please. can I return it???
Where we will found firmware updates? The current www.antvr.com website should be also in english. Currently I do not understand a word. :-( At least the register page should be in english too.
Do you plan to translate the calibration tool in english? If I do not connect the headset directly to the PC (USB connector) I can not calibrate the headset; on the other side I can not read/understand the error message which is displayed in this case.
Because this IS a international distributed product, an english versions (website and software) should be readable by all peoples/backers.
The rest of you come join us, let's build up that user knowledge base.
Went to launch Tridef today and there was an update. Now all of my steam games are working. For anyone that was having issues with Tridef and steam I would suggest downloading the latest version. The Forest and Ethan Carter were two that I really wanted to try but could not get to work and now I have tried both and can say both work great as long as your computer can handle them.
Thanks for your and other backers' valuable suggestions! Actually, our team does not stop improving the Kit. During the evolution of AK, your feedback is the key to better version.
I got my kit already but my only concern is I didn't get the controller, I got the display adapter but no convertible controller.
@thanks for the great update.
I hope the new lens you'll send to us will fix the display image ratio and will let us viewing the wole screen in order to achieve less screen door so better redolution.
That's the most important issue to fix in my point of view.
Thanks - Display cleaning is now done :-)
What improvements are planned in the next firmware update (in January); apart from the IMU one-step control?
In my opinion they should get the trackers added to OpenTrack so we get many supported game protocols.
For headtracking it would be better in my opinion when it simulated a joystick (like EDTracker).
Maybe some day we get a software to configure the tracking.
Or someone creates something to make it work like a joystick when the SDK is out.
I received the Kit yesterday.
Can you guys setup the Kit by following the instruction I found here http://pan.baidu.com/s/1pJPubJP
The rest of you come join us, let's build up that user knowledge base.
@Pascal - once the screws are undone as the holder slides up the two cables on the sides need to slide outwards from the lens area to release the holder - hope it helps
I have a suggestion, guys do you think is there way to put more space between tje lens and the screen ? Maybe i'm wrong but i think we could mod the lens holder to put it near and closer to our eyes?
If it would be possible maybe we can achieve more vertical screen visible.
I have tried to open the headset to clean the screen. But I have trouble to remove the lens holder after removing 2 screws (2 of 4 screw holes do not have any screws!). I will not break anything. Just because I used too much of "power".
Anybody already open the headset? Can anyone give me tips to what else I should pay attention?
only reason i bought antvr was its compatible with several hundred existing pc games but oculus is not. oculus dev kit 1 was compatible with tridef but now dev kit 2 nope and they blocked it something! so i sold it
@Chan Simpson if you see heavily pixelated screen then you definitely didn't do it right. you have two option for resolution 1080x1920 and 1920x1080 so hopefully you got that right. flashing light can solve by putting electric tape to cover it( this is not a consumer product and you should know before pledging money to kickstarter). antvr said iz3d and tridef works and 3d vision is not so i don't understand why antvr said 3d vsion works. maybe they got misken between iz3d and 3d vision. every vr headset have problem with unreadable text so you can zoom it to solve that problem. you got a have a little light goes through the foam otherwise your face get sweat, even dev kit 2 gets little light gets in(its normal).
Received their manual via email. The manual looks good for basic (non-wireless/no joypad headset only usage).
I finally got a response to my questions... It would seem issues will probably not be fixed until there nextgen product and nVision3D support was a lie as it does not support SBS according to the nvidia forums... Also they seem to believe I am not following the manual, trust me though I spent hours going over the manual.... The lens though seem to be a huge issue.
Comments below (there response is in quotes):
-- I spent hours trying to get it to work with Nvidia 3DVision and I can not.
"The Nvidia 3D Vision can be worked with ANTVR KIT. Please check your PC or read some guide of Nvidia 3D Vision."
-- It is heavily pixelated / screen door or whatever you want to call it. The 2d effect is a fishbowl.
"There are three model. Do you read the manual? You can choose the right model , and try some 3D movie. Or try the demo we provide.
Thank you for your advice. We will enhance the 2D effect in next generation."
-- The text is completely unreadable.
"If you read some text in the PC, you can use model A, that will be clear."
-- The flashing light everyone reported is annoying.
"Could you try to set as the manual? If set as that, there will be no flashing light.
And in next generation, we are consider if the set is not correct, we will not show image, in case of some users will use the incorrect set."
-- There is not enough foam on the sides so light gets in.
"Good suggestion! we will improve it in next generation."
-- Pixel flashing is def. happening.
"Could you try to set as the manual? If set as that, there will be no pixel flashing."
