Mixed Reality Setup Wizard

A few days ago we’ve posted detailed article regarding Mixed Reality in Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. If you aren’t familiar with the topic, you can read the article here.

To simplify the set up process one of our programmers Goran Adrinek has made instructional video with captures for setting up the mixed reality in SSVR.

If you are interested into the topic and you want to learn more, feel free to visit active discussion about Mixed Reality at Steam Community SSVR page.

Mixed Reality in Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope

Goran Adrinek, Lead gameplay programmer

Introduction

This article explains the work it took to implement mixed reality into our game using our own engine. Apart from using the approaches already taken by some other teams, we have developed some new techniques that work great to solve latency issues as well as make camera calibration really simple for the user. We haven’t found anyone describe such solutions to these common problems, so our implementation should be interesting both to people new to the subject and to the people who already did mixed reality and want to improve their approach. 

How it all started for us

Mixed reality was already found to be a great way to demonstrate VR experience outside of VR. Naturally, we also wanted to use mixed reality for promotion of Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. We started implementing mixed reality two weeks before the EGX 2016 show so we could be featured on the Vive stand, capture some promotional footage as well as show off our game in all its glory featuring the physical minigun controller.  [Read More]
