If there is no change, would somebody mind doing a test? Let me know the raw and degrees values from the debug output when holding the rift at 0, 45, 90 etc degrees (in real life) in each plane (yaw, pitch, roll)? Thanks!
I updated to .15 today and let my girlfriend try in a coffee shop (yes, I brought it all with me haha), so I did not try the latest version myself just yet, but from looking over her shoulder, it seemed to work wonderfully well. Within seconds she was strolling around, chopping wood and saying hi to chickens. Note that this was the first time she tried the Rift (and VR in general). She reported no nauseous feeling nor other visual problems, except that the GUI was too difficult to read/use (referring to the crafting menu).
I tried to lock the UI in place, which seemed to work, but it still seemed a bit too far and distorted to be legible, or at least somewhat easily so. It too seemed still stuck to the character, and locking it would "attach" it to the camera exactly as it appeared the moment you locked it, if I describe that properly.
I wonder if perhaps a custom UI (proxy?) overlay for the Rift would be easier to create than to modify the original to appear properly? Just a thought (from, admittedly, not a developer haha).
Thank you again for all of this wonderful work. It was truly incredible to see my girlfriend play a familiar game, but now actualy feel part of it. She stumbled once when she looked down and said (out loud) "oh, wow, that's deep", she noticed a chicken staring at her as she stared back, and quite a few times just stood there for a bit, looking around to see what was around her.
To be honest, after my initial slight letdown for the (known) problems with the Rift (the screen resolution being quite a big one, bigger than I anticipated), it was your Minecraft mod that made me realize how bloody amazing this all is. I still can wait for a higher resolution version, but at least now I know I'll be busy playing Minecraft until it gets here
