How to use Keyboard Mode for VR games

Some VR games can be played with the Omni using Keyboard Mode. In this mode, movement in the Omni is translated to the WASD keys on a keyboard for movement (forward, left, backward, and right respectively). Follow these steps to enable keyboard mode:

  1. Open Omni Connect.
  2. Click on the gamepad icon and select the keyboard icon to enable Keyboard Mode.
    Enable Keyboard Mode
  3. Set the game being played to keyboard mode instead of gamepad mode. This may require going into the options menu of the game.

The game being played must be compatible with movement using a keyboard. Some games that can be played using keyboard mode include: The Assembly, Alice VR, Mind: Path to Thalamus, and AltSpaceVR. You can search for other VR games that allow for this input mode on storefronts such as Oculus Home or SteamVR.
