After dedicating countless hours and sleepless nights over a period of two weeks, Armin @arminelec and I feel confident to release the new Pimax VR Experience Beta 0.60.0.0 We believe we have solved a large amount of critical and important issues as well as minor bugs, while introducing significant improvements and a bunch of new features. We look forward to hear about your experience!
We value every piece of feedback we receive. We may not respond individually to everyone, but we will use your comments as we strive to improve your experience.
Note:The new beta comes with its own installer, but requires you to have PiTool version 1.0.2.084 installed. Make sure to tick the checkbox “Start Pimax VR Home” in PiTool, Settings → General . This will enable automatic launch of Pimax VR Experience.
0.60.0.0 Beta - Release Notes
New: The app comes with its own installer apart from the PiTool
New: User can now choose the install location of the app independent of PiTool install location
New: Installer setup file size is heavily compressed for quicker download
New: Profile based command line arguments management per game
I just installed the Beta 0.60.0.0 as well, first try for PE, and it works just fine, flawless and without any crashed so far.
Really very very good work, @SweViver and @arminelec
Just having one concern - I don’t know whether it comes from the PE or the PiTool 1.0.2.084:
But have they adjusted the base value on which colour related contrast works…?
With the former 126.96.36.1993, I had the following settings:
Red contrast: +2 - so +1 compared to the general.
That’s how I learned it from some threads in this forum to achieve a less cold / warmer image, worked well with the old 5K+ and the new 8K-X. Until now…
=> When using these settings now with 1.0.2.084:
+1 / red +2 and brightness -1, the image turns out quite to reddish. I have to reduce “red” to +1 in order to look almost the same as before - even though I think it is still just a little bit too reddish, but that might be some kind of hypersensitivity now.
Wouldn’t know any other place to ask right now, since PiTool 1.0.2.084 still isn’t released officially but related to PE beta in some way…
I love it and it workes great. Just a quick question in the upper left it tells me that my hmd is not connected to PiTools. did some settings reset and looked around then loaded up a few stream VR games then exited everything worked liked before but it still said I was not counted to PiTools.
Do I need to be? should I be (why or why not). I have the 8K+
