Beta Release 50


Beta Release 50 includes up to Developer Release 6961, and does not include a protocol change. You will not need to update from the last version in order to visit domains running it. Should be live within an hour!

The nitty gritty:

  • Add point and thumb up gestures to the HTC Vive
    ** When the thumb is off the touchpad, trigger the :+1: animation.
    ** When the thumb is resting on the touchpad and most of the way forward, trigger the :point_right: animation.
  • MIDI support for Entities
    **Entities can receive incoming MIDI notes from any device, and can send notes to all devices. USB plug/unplug is detected so that the system can re-adjust live. Device names are available and can be used to ignore specific input or output devices.

Awaiting fix graphics


picture shows unnatural thumb placement

there’s something wrong with this animation this is the controls are even on the pointing

Add point and thumb up gestures to the HTC Vive
Totally broken This needs more work think You need to think about how things work in real life
the animation is screwed up

Also you need to enable disable on this
sometimes people don’t keep their thumbs on the pad as well see constant keeping peoples thumbs up is not a good idea pointing as well when you’re walking
