How to Walk in VR

 

Make the rollers turn fast in one direction.

Walking forwards: Lift your toes when putting the foot forward, this lifts the roller from the ground. Drag the foot backwards over the carpet.

Abrupt stop: place both feet on the ground.

Slider to adjust input speed.

If movement is jerky: shuffle quicker. Takes one week 🙂 then you master it.

How to Run in VR

 

Take a fast stride to enter run mode.
If run/walk is out of sync: pause for a fraction of a second.
For some games, you press the receiver button 3 times to improve the run/walk experience. If you’re entering run-mode too easily, reduce slider input.

How to mount the receiver

Change the frequency for multiplayer

Use external battery pack

This is the ideal USB Type C Splitter from CableCreation 2-in-1 USB https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YD3BF4N/

You can also mount the receiver on your back. As long as it is attached to the headset it picks up the orientation which is needed for follow Cybershoes. And this is the link for ordering a longer cable in case needed: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GGKYF9Y/

Adjust height

Recommended for all games that do not have with a seated mode.

Recording in 16:9 without compression artifacts

1080p recording causes severe compression artifacts in movement. However, with the below settings, the recording is crisp and clear at 720p. In our opinion, the quality is better as compared to Wifi-6 streaming, especially when in motion.

Set the speed-slider to a relatively slow setting: this corresponds to a 1:1 speed making the recording look more natural.
