  • I apologize that we dont look at the forum that much, we are hard at work.

    We did broke all the deadlines with this release, but for one reason. Lots of people will look at what we did now and we cant allow this one to be bugged out or half done.
    Even with unfinished release like this, things have to go smooth. There will be enough bugs that we know of, but those that are experience braking, well we just have to deal with them.

    From this build on, we organized things so that the fixes can be deployed fast and almost on the daily bases. Depending on how fast we can work stuff out.
    I hope you understand and thank you for the support so far! We are grateful for everything.

  • The build is done. We will upload trough the weekend, but release on monday. We wont do it over saturday, or sunday as if something goes wrong, we need to be up and running, not climbing some cliff or riding a bike or sailing, spacesys is not in that phase yet :)

  • We tried dropbox early on, but that did not go well, slow uploads, and slow downloads, and really bad security.
    Complication with users cant get to the link.. and a whole lot more ..

    We use our own servers now.. It has to go that way. Source control, older versions, controlled access. all kinds of stuff that we handle there.
    Dropbox is less configurable.

      • Menu colors, highlights, opacity and font faces are fully configurable through the Config app
      • Menu pin object type can be configured through Config tool

      • Pressing [Pause] inside SpaceSys toggles Live Windows
      • Live Application Windows fully support stereoscopy mode and enable showing any Windows program inside VR environments using Oculus Rift (start any Media Player to watch a video inside VR or use a browser to watch Youtube, etc..)
      • Live Application Windows are initially shown in an unorderd arc of 3D objects
      • Can be dragged, rotated and repositioned inside the 3D environment
      • Are refreshed in real time
      • Opacity can be configured using the same setting as for the 3D context menus through the Config tool
    • Icons, spaces, points of interest, menus, windows can be "focusable":
      • Middle-click any of these objects to make them a focus target
      • Move around them using mouse scroll and edge scrolling or keyboard
    • Animations can be enabled for icons and menus to provide a more lively / interactive experience inside a 3D environment
      • Choose from 2 types of animations for icons - scale / rotate on mouseover
    • Fly to a space, point of interest, menu or live app window using mouse double click and other mouse / kbd options:
