    As stated in another thread I am having good results with the Oculus Quest in a wireless setup. Also inside out tracking.


    Unfortunately the most important button (teleport) is not mapped. Enscape is looking into it.


    Seems that a custom mapping feature would enable the proper use of different headsets.

    Until now rendering images at 4K was sufficient. However today a client requested a higher resolution. Even with my 11GB RTX2080TI I am not able to render much higher resolutions than 4K before Enscape crashes.


    Would it be possible to implement a solution like you did for the panorama renders?

    (making multiple renders and then stitch them into one image)

    So currently which is the best option for the best VR output, Keeping it wired or wireless - for enscape.

    1)To showcase to client

    2)To Work

    In a fixed setting I am very happy with the performance of my Vive Pro with wireless adapter. No cables to worry about or clients getting tangled up.


    At client locations I am trying the Oculus Quest streaming wirelessly from the laptop. Thanks to the inside out tracking there is no need for basestations and cables and stuff. Much easier and faster to deploy. Unfortunately the trigger button does not work as it should. Enscape is currently looking into it. This would be the ideal solution.

    Can you give any indication if the controller issue is solvable? I am eager to deploy this solution for my business and would appreciate any feedback.


    Alternatively for the time being can you make it so that I can press a button on my laptop to activate the teleport? It is not ideal but at least workable.


    With that I mean. The user points to a location with the teleport arc and I trigger the teleport.

    The way the controller is emulated is puzzling to me.


    In the SteamVR 'waiting room' I see the Rift S controller. The grip button and the thumbstick are animated analog. Pressing the button halfway will also show it halfway in VR. The trigger button on the other hand is either pressed or not pressed.



    Also in the Enscape executable I see the Rift S controllers. The buttons are not animated by the way. But when opening the key binding menu from the settings it shows the Touch controller and there is no option to choose the Rift S. Choosing another controller will not change the controller in Enscape anyway.



    As you can see the teleport arc works as expected. But I cannot execute the teleport.


    If there is any testing I can do from my end. Please let me know. I am very motivated to get this working. My system, drivers and SteamVR are all up to date.

    The VD developer has looked into the Quest controller issue (not being able to do the teleport) taking into account your remarks and made some changes and uploaded a beta version for me to test. Unfortunately the issue is not solved. This is the feedback he gave:


    The developer of Enspace will need to properly support this as I’ve done all I can from my end. If they need a key to test it, have them email me: guy@vrdesktop.net


    I asked for any pointers for what to look at:


    It’s hard to say, the developer needs to run it from Virtual Desktop with a Quest to see where the input is not behaving as expected.


    Maybe it has something to do with SteamVR recognizing the Quest controller as an Oculus Touch controller which seems to have a physical click on the trigger button. This is not the case for the Quest controller.



    It is so frustrating to have the perfect solution and yet be litterally one click away. The Oculus Quest setup provides fast deployment and large play areas because of the inside out tracking (no need for base stations and cabling) and a wireless experience for the user. This solution would really benefit my business and most likely that of other Enscape users.


    Please can you look into it? Maybe a workaround with another button (A or B) to execute the teleport. Or moving forward and letting go the thumbstick like it works in SteamVR Home.


    As explained in the other thread I have Enscape working wirelessly with the Oculus Quest. This make roomscale demonstration on client locations so much easier. One backpack with my laptop and my Quest. No basestations, no wires, no extension cords, no stands for the basestations, no PC with the wireless card for my Vive.


    One issue to resolve.


    The trigger button on the Quest controller will show the teleport arc but I cannot click and do the actual teleport. This is how the Vive controller works. Pulling the trigger will show the arc. Clicking the trigger will do the actual teleport. This last click seems to be missing with the Quest controller. In SteamVR you can do a controller test which confirms registering the pull action but not the click action.

    Tonight I chatted with the creator of Virtual Desktop and he tested the Quest and Rift and reported back that both show the same behavior in the SteamVR controller test. In other words both don’t show the click Enscape is waiting for.


    Can someone with a Rift explain how the teleport works in Enscape?


    @Enscape. Do you use OpenVR?


    I tried rebinding the controller keys in SteamVR which seems possible but then I cannot save the new bindings like for other apps.


    Any help would be appreciated. The solution is so close. Just one click away.

    Happy to report I was able to solve the wifi setup for client locations.


    In first instance I connected a 5Ghz wifi router to the laptop (wired) and then connected the Quest to the wifi signal. This resulted in a good connection between the Quest and the laptop. Unfortunately (as Sean Farrell mentioned above) Virtual Desktop needs an internet connection to startup. After that the connection is only local (confirmed by the creator of VD). This means a cabled internet connection must be available at the client location which is not always the case.


    Today I tested a 5Ghz wifi repeater with an UTP connection. The setup is simple. Laptop wired to the repeater and Quest connected to the 5Ghz outgoing wifi signal. The incoming 2.4Ghz wifi is the hotspot on my iPhone. VD starts up and after that a local fast connection between the laptop and the Quest. Now I can run Enscape in VR on my Quest at client locations (wirelessly) :)


    Now only to solve the key binding issue.

    As stated in another thread I think that the Quest can easily run the web standalone in VR. It can be run from the native browser so no need for streaming from a separate laptop. Just like https://moonrider.xyz


    So the only thing that is needed is a VR interface.

    The web standalone is great for collaboration clients during the design process. No need for special software/hardware. I really like it.


    I do have two suggestions for improvement.


    1. Please add the loading screen option like with the standalone executable. It is more professional if clients see my company logo. I don't mind if you add the Enscape logo as well.

    2. Please anable navigation through WASD. 'Q' and 'E' are also used. It is logical to have WASD as well.
