The announcements are starting to stream in from GDC! First up is Epic Games. While this really isn't that big a surprise, Epic has revealed that their Unreal Development Kit (UDK) will include Oculus Rift support in April and is being shipped with all the Oculus SDKs. The Oculus add-on will also be downloadable from Epic's site. What this means is that independent game developers and participating academic institutions will be able to start developing games based on the Unreal Engine for free. Full fledged Unreal Engine licensees will get the additional Oculus Rift coding for free.
Members have expressed an interest in starting a Wiki on MTBS, so we are pleased to reveal MTBS' Immersipedia! There is barely anything in the Wiki right now. However, thanks to work by Andres Hernandez (Cybereality) and Cris Villalobos, we have a good template going with some polished graphics. Now we just have to fill it with stuff!
We created a special discussion forum on MTBS to talk about its contents, structure, and where to take it. This is nearly 100% community dependent, it's non-proprietary, and we are hoping it's a useful outlet for our members to build with. Good luck!
To log on to the Wiki, make sure you have an account and log in from the front page of mtbs3D.com (use your forum account if that already exists). Once you have done this at least once, that single account will work in our forums and in the Wiki.
Now this is just silly! Look at these schmose nonchalantly opening up the Oculus SDK all organized while they calmly count the cables and lenses. Let's be honest here! Forgive our choice of analogy, but how many of you are going to be opening your Oculus kits like a highly antcipated fourth date?
We would wager that countless doorsteps are going to be strewn with a path of torn boxes, wrap, and ignored manuals leading to recently polished gaming rigs. Sadly, we all have to be a bit more patient as the kits don't get shipped out until the end of the month, and then there is customs and missed doorbells, etc. Such is life!
