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:
- Open Omni Connect.
- Click on the gamepad icon and select the keyboard icon to enable Keyboard Mode.
- Set the game being played to keyboard mode instead of gamepad mode. This may require going into the options menu of the game.
- If the player is finding it too difficult to trigger movement, the tracking sensitivity can be adjusted in the advanced menu of Omni Connect. Follow this link for more information: http://www.virtuix.com/support/how-to-adjust-tracking-sensitivity-for-keyboard-or-bluetooth-mode/
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 digital VR storefronts.
