How do you get word to the people that sold me the ANTVR???? Mine never has worked since I got it and can't get help from the company, they never even answer. I would like to get my money back, this is worthless to me. Please help.
@dave: Work the new kit much better then the first one? Calibrate software now at least in english or only still in chinese? Where do you living? Anyone get the new kit too?
Lucky you. I am still sitting here with a not working kit.
At least I can have SOME VR with my Gear VR that I got with my new smartphone... damn, I want to play Skyrim and Elite Dangerous and not Temple Run...
Took awhile but AntVR is finally sending me a replacement with their newest version.
That could be of interest to you (CES 2016):

Pascal Künzli@ FORGET WHAT I SAID PASCAL. AFTER WATCH THIS VIDEO I DECIDED TO WAIT UNTIL VIRTUALIZER IS READY TO SHIP SOMETIME THIS YEAR. https://www.youtube.com/watch…
Pascal Künzli@ walking movement of Virtualizer is not natural as Virtuix or Kat Walk.
Pascal Künzli@ its possible that creator can cancel or give backer money back. if every backer can give 10% to cyberith, im sure he can do it without loss for himself. Kat Walk and Virtuix Omni is still cheaper than Virualizer after 10% to Cyberith. I think Cyberith want to wait until VR takes off which it won't happen anytime soon. They want to have big order so they can get cheaper deal but they want to make sure if VR becomes popular or not. Lot of people decide not to buy Oculus after they double the price of oculus dk2. its better to get a Virtuix or Kat Walk instead of waiting for unknown date product.
Pascal Künzli@ It looks like you are a Virtualizer backer. i bought a Cyberith Virtualizer from one of the backer. I can't write a comment since im not a original backer. Im sure Cyberith will loose money if he give backers money back because he already process hardware parts. Do you mine if you can post this letter to Vitualizer kickstarter comment section? " WE LIKE TO GIVE 5% to10% OF OUR VIRTUALIZER PRICE IF WE CAN CANCEL IT. CAN YOU MAKE A SURVEY TO EVERY BACKER WHO CAN AGREE WITH?"
Th new lenses do not find the way to my. But the headset does not work anymore, because that with new lenses does not matter. - 500 USD for nothing - my motivation to support projects here are now much conservative then before.
Naim Bawar@ Are you kidding me? Antvr actually gave us manual book and also gave us even more detail downloadable manual how to connect the device. Anyway, Antvr is FUCK UP!!!
I will never buy anything from chines company! Got my kit and new lins but i have never could start the kit. There is no manual wich show how to connect to pc in corret way to watch movies and play games �
Hope ANTVR will send out the new work that will work :(
Anyone heading to CES? I am curious regarding any product line updates, modifications, UPDATED FIRMWARE, Etc
The best news we could hope for I think:
"OSVR Closes 2015 With A Total of 300 Industry Partners, Now The Largest Open Source VR Ecosystem In The Industry."
and AntVR is one of those companies.
@Damon Hooker Jr.: Since at least 3/7/2015 the website is reachable in english (en.antvr.com). But also since this date no content updates anymore.
Antvr.com is now in English!
Pascal Künzli@ i see that you ordered Virtualizer. I think KATVR looks interesting or maybe better than Virtualizer.
Today I have tried again my headset with some SBS Youtube movies; of course still with the first lenses because I don't received the new lenses. After around 20 minutes the headset display switching off (black screen). Reconnecting HDMI cable or USB cable solve the issue... for some seconds then the screen switch off again.
Perfect! I have paid 500 USD for technical useless crap... and still no answers from AntVR.
By the way: The demos under en.antvr.com points to a chinese site (http://pan.baidu.com/s/1sj9aTm1) where I can't read a word and can't download anything, because I don't know where to click for download.
@David Wallingham... I do not use mine (the Wireless version). Make an offer?
Hm... last login of AntVR: today
AntVR: No reaction to our comments?
2 weeeks later - I still don't receive the new glases. :-(
My headset completely stopped working this week. Black screen. Too bad too as it was working pretty good with the new lenses.
> There is no activity on here because this project has completed and is fulfilled
I expect here no reaction anymore. On the other hand I also get no response to my mails. What there still remains for me?
By the international support (Kickstarter funding) I expect a communication at least on they own website in an internationally understandable language (english). Apparently this is unfortunately too much.
My english is even lousy. but you understand me at least (hopefully :-D).
By the way: Anyone DON'T received the new glases, too?
There is no activity on here because this project has completed and is fulfilled. You'll need to contact them directly for any questions..
> There does seem to be constant activity at http://tw.weibo.com/antvr
Nice - But on this site I don't understand a word. In this case it is like "no news" to me and yes, I tried with Google Translate but then the site will be useless.
The lack of communication is bad. There does seem to be constant activity at http://tw.weibo.com/antvr
Looks like the product/development is dead? No updates here, no updates on your website, no live sign on any other channel.
AntVR: What's going on?
IMU GUN SENSOR UPDATE PLEASE~~~~~~~~~~~ YOU SON OF BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
JUST LET EVERYBODY KNOW!!!!!! KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN IS FUCKING RIP OFF!!!! NOT JUST ANTVR!!! I'VE SEEN SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE KICKSTARTER PROJECTS AND THEY ALL COMPLAINED!!! FUCK YOU KICKSTARTER SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i got the same problem, antvr isnt working , only black screen on display, wrote also the antvr team.
i got today the new lenses , thanx for that. but i need a working antvr hmd for installing it :)
Great... I just got new lenses... I WOULD be happy if it wasn't for the fact that my AntVR is not working anymore - like I told you (AntVR) on July 19th via Kickstarter message!
Well... maybe you (the community) can help me solving the problem with my device. Here is the text I've sent to them:
I have a problem:
I didn't use my kit for a couple of weeks and stored it a cupboard on our balcony.
Today I wanted to play a bit Elite Dangerous with it but the display stays black. So I reloaded it since then (about 7 hours), but the display stays black although it seems to be a bit illuminated, but nothing shows up.
I tried several times both in wired and wireless mode, but nothing changes.
The last 2 weeks where pretty hot here (max temperature of 39°C), so I think it might have something to do with the temperature (?).
Is there anything I can do to make the kit work again?
Thank you in advance,
Just got my lenses..
Still waiting for new lenses (Switzerland). But where are the firmware updates anyway?
Just received the new lens, and was pleasantly surprised. Much better quality than the original set, and the images are finally sharp and clear. Kudos to AntVR for a much needed "upgrade", albeit one which has been rather delayed.. Hope that you'll keep up the hard work, and all the best!
here is the perfect controller for antvr for sell http://www.ebay.de/itm/PERCEPTION-NEURON-Motion-Capture-Controller-Oculus-Rift-DK2-NEU-/231681051081?
No new lens at all here..
@Chris Keller I have pretty well had the exact same results that you mention. Some things that worked great before look a little better. Windlands for example looks fantastic, try it out if you haven't yet. Most first persons ran just fine just feels like playing on lower resolution. I found the corners far less blurry then my other lenses. Some other Ganges that seemed to me to work better than others are vanishing of Ethan Carter, portal, skyrim (though menus can be tough), bioshock infinity, euro truck simulator, project cars. To name a few that worked well.
Will the new lenses also fit into the TAW ?
Post lens install update
Overall the news lens is nicer than the old lens as the picture quality is improved (more clear, less fuzzy/oily quality).
Original assessment remains sadly:
At 1080x1920 text is just legible, the screen door is slightly better than DK2, and No pixel flares! – but the world is 90* The 2D screen looks VERY good like this - almost as good as DK2.
At 1920x1080 text is NOT even close to legible, I notice terrible screen door effect worse than DK1 and massive pixel flare!
At 1080x1920 with a couterclockwise rotation no pixel flare, text is nearly legible, the screen door is slightly better than DK2, and No pixel flares. Scalling to 200% in chrome allows for legible clear text! Moving to SBS -> Bioshock Infinite gameplay footage is doable - it just feels like playing at a low resolution. My entire vertical FOV is consumed with just a bit of black on either side.
Still hoping that a software patch can allow normal 1080x1920 (with no counterclockwise rotation)
Still waiting on software patch for a usable remote
@Brad, The 4 screws in the corners of the lens plate was shown in the instructions. You can also look at the January 3rd update and look at the picture about how to open the headset for the dust blower. The yellow screwdriver is in one of the 4 screws you need to remove. One in each corner. On mine 2 screws are longer than the other 2, keep track of which goes where. The lens plate easily separates and then you can remove the wires from the sides of the lens plate as shown in the instructions. I would do this over a blanket with the lens side facing down so the lenses don't fall in on the display. I would hold it that way for reassembly and hold it together tight with one hand before flipping it lens side up to replace the screws. It is a little tricky to get the lenses seated and in the IPD adjuster slots. While it's all apart, try to get all the dust you can out of the headset. Good luck.
@KydDynoMyte yeah but my Chinglish is not that good and the instructions just say, remove old one and put in new ones, nothing about which screws to remove or how to pry the case open without breaking it.
@KydDynoMyte thanks I got mine installed now and they seem like they will be better. I tried testing but I can't get Games to go landscape with the antvr using Windows 10. I will neryd to play around with it some more.
@David, depends on how bad your first set was. Both of mine looked fine with my eyes but you can tell a big difference when you try to look through the lenses with a camera. The newer ones look like they were handled and assembled better and seem to be much higher quality version of the same lenses.
I received my lenses today. Have not had a chance to install yet. How big of a difference are people seeing?
@Brad, were the installation instructions not wrapped around your new lenses?
Great, now how do I install these new lenses? Parts have been falling off this thing for the last couple of months and still don't have any software updates.
Just got mine, they look a lot better even though my original set wasn't too bad. http://imgur.com/a/cQII9
