Oculus Rift Update: You Can Now Install VR Apps On A Different Drive : TECH : Tech Times. Up until now, the default install directory for Oculus Rift games would automatically direct to the default system drive. A recent update, lets users install to a different directory and here’s how to jump on that train for existing users. ( Oculus ) We all want more Virtual Reality (VR) games to use our Oculus Rift on, but we need more space to do so. Unless users have an enormous default disk space, they will only be limited to the few precious spaces their default system drive offers. There wasn't any chance to install a huge directory of games to allow for more varying virtual experiences since the Oculus Rift would default game installs to where the operating system (OS) resided, or for Windows users, Drive C. Fortunately, that's all worries of the past. A recent update from the Oculus VR company lets users take advantage of their extra ginormous hard drive spaces allotted for other activities and in this case, more virtual goodness.

For me — and many others — Windows is on my smaller, faster SSD, and I only installed four games before running out of space.

Meanwhile, I didn’t have the option to move any of that data over to my relatively empty 3TB hard drive. Giving users the choice to use different storage locations means that consumers may have a lot more space, and that could lead to a lot more spending in a VR market that analysts from SuperData Research predict will generate $40 billion in revenues by 2020.

Flying through an obstacle-filled arena in zero gravity like in the Battle Room scenes of Ender’s Game, catching and throwing a disk to score in an opposing team’s goal, all while in a Tron-looking virtual reality, is probably about the best way I can describe Lone Echo’s surprisingly successful multiplayer mode in one sentence. At Oculus Connect 3, I was able to try a singleplayer demo of Lone Echo, an Oculus Touch exclusive by developer Ready at Dawn that lets you grab, pull, and push yourself around in zero gravity as a robot, but I didn’t know what to expect when I was told that I’d get to try out a multiplayer demo as well, since the singleplayer didn’t really have any activities that I could imagine doing with someone else in a meaningful way, much less in a competitively.

Envelop This ambitious approach to the VR desktop is very different from Virtual Desktop or BigScreen, and is probably closer to the virtual reality desktop most of us imagine: instead of simply reproducing a flat rectangle that shows what you’d see on your monitor, Envelop aims to reinvent the entire desktop, using the strengths of a VR workspace to revolutionise productivity. The main difference here is that each open program and window is treated as a separate movable and scalable 3D object, entirely free from the shackles of a monitor’s resolution and framing.

As such, your desktop can become a vast 3D space, and you can literally surround yourself with windows of different sizes, each with individual adjustments for scale and depth. All this is achieved in an impressively slick manner, with good performance and intuitive controls.

How to Avoid the Effect of Motion Sickness in VR. One of the biggest problems that all virtual reality (VR) developers currently face is movement within virtual reality and the potential of motion sickness. Generally speaking, this problem can be broken down into three components: hardware, software, and each individual’s own perception.

In this post we’ll discuss current solutions to specific problems when it comes to motion sickness and the challenges that developers face. We’ll also explore ways on how motion sickness can be minimized by changing movement mechanics and using such techniques as movement towards the “viewpoint”, visualization of movement trajectories, using slow motion effects, movement through teleportation from point to point and putting a player into a “cabin”. To illustrate the problem, it might help to look at what seems to be the perfect gaming genre for VR – first-person shooters (FPS).
