SteamVR has picked up a much-needed update that addresses several issues in the nascent platform. The visual quality of the screen is better, and you now have gaze-based controls. There are a slew of bug fixes as well, as well as the ability to customize colors on the dashboard.
Here’s what’s new:
Desktop Game Theater
- Improved the visual quality of the screen.
- Added gaze-based controls to change the size and shape of the screen.
- Added a gaze-based control to recenter the screen after a 3-second delay.
- Repositioned the screen relative to the headset center.
- Fixed a bug that sometimes caused visual choppiness.
- Fixed so it correctly follows locale setting.
Added settings to customize play area color and opacity.
SteamVR is still in beta testing, but if you’re rocking an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, you can see what’s on offer from here.
