How to walk

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

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.

When the start-light goes off: immediately press the button. The time window for changing frequency is very small.

Take a fast stride to enter run mode. Walk slowly (or dial the slider down) if you do not want to enter run mode. In case you can’t start to run: game and Cybershoes are out of sync. Pause for a fraction of a second (or take a step BWD) and you can run again.

Settings > Gameplay > select Look Direction Movement

Calibrate (press receiver button) while looking 90° to your right side.

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.

Recording on Quest2 in 16:9 without compression artifacts using SideQuest and the internal recording
