web VR using Cardboard or Gear VR?

Postby sstgerma » Mon Nov 27, 2017 7:46 pm

I would like to view my virtual tour using Google Cardboard or Gear VR. I have the webVR button and gyroscope plugins added to my app. On Chrome on my desktop the webVR goggle icon appears and when clicked it splits the screen but also freezes it. I am not seeing the goggles icon on my cell phone in any browser (have tried Chrome, Firefox). I have installed the Samsung Internet browser which supposedly supports webvr. Additionally I have tried accessing my virtual tour app using the Oculus browser via Samsung Gear VR - I can view the app in 2D on a virtual screen but when I switch the perspective to 360 (or any of the other viewing options) it shows a distorted view. Any suggestions or a known combination that works? I have a presentation next weekend and would love to be able to immerse the viewer in the scene. Thanks.

Hi sstgerma,

We have a bug in VR mode in general with the 0.9.5 version of ForgeJS.
I know that the team fixed something about VR last week but I don't know if the fix has been merged into the master branch.
I'll ask tomorrow morning :)

Does this fix your VR issue ?

I cloned forgeJS, copied the edits to RenderManager.js then built forge.js. When I use this version I am not seeing the webVR icon anymore so sorry no luck. Just so I keep my versions straight would the hotspot DOM 'fix' be included in the repo clone? Anything else I can try? Thanks!

Hey,

It seems that we have issue with plugins buttons display.
2D buttons does not appear anymore :(
If you are using the custom build we made for you, you may have this issue too !
We are working on it !

Have a nice day ;)
