- With any VR headset, you'll need a powerful computer first. Check out our recommended specifications here.
- You'll want to make sure you have adequate space for your VR experience, here are a few different ways we've set up our headsets.
For the Oculus Rift:
- Refer to the official Oculus Rift installation guide.
- Please note that the Oculus Rift DK2 is no longer supported.
For the HTC Vive:
- Refer to the official HTC Vive installation guide.
- We suggest wall-mounting your HTC Vive base stations for the best experience, although they can also be mounted on a tripod. Any standard tripod will suffice, though we've used this tripod with this tripod head (and optionally this pivot arm) in the past.
- HTC Vive Pro requires a top of the line PC, and would only be recommended for use with our highest end hardware specs or better.
- Make sure you are opted out of all beta programs in SteamVR, as these unofficial versions can potentially cause issues with Prospect. If you have noticed any issues with performance, such as buttons losing functionality:
- Close SteamVR
- Navigate to Steam library and right click SteamVR -> properties
- Open the betas tab
- Make sure you're not in beta
- Ensure non-beta is downloaded
- Launch SteamVR and verify the version
None- Opt out of all beta programs
- SteamVR has a setting to automatically adjust resolution based on detected hardware, which can cause unfavorable results. To manually set this at 100%:
- Navigate to Settings --> Video
- Check Manual Override
- Set resolution to 100%
Application Resolution - Manual Override 100%
