Locomotion and the Omni Virtuix
Hello Dev's, I wanted to see if you would be implementing keyboard WASD controls or Omni Virtuix Support from their free SDK so users like myself and many others can use our Omni's to walk around within the game rather than the current movement controls. I'd be more than willing to help test the functionality with my Omni if you do implement it ^.^ I've already helped a few other dev's get their support up and running by testing for them.

We're grateful for the helping hand, but this is not something we'll be focusing on at the present time. If the demand rises, then yes. If not, ask us closer to full release.

omni would be awesome! +1 to the rising demand :cybereye:

Noted. Anyone else? :D

I know I would like Omni support - this game looks awesome!

I'll take that Omni support as well or ♥♥♥♥, give me wads or controller, the Omni can emulate either. Will be buying this today eitherway though as I am a sword and board gamer.

Yeah WASD keyboard support would be nice but emulating on the Omni sucks... decoupled is where the Omni really shines which is why things need actually support not emulated support.

Thanks to your diligence both on the Karnage and the Omni forums we are now in talks with Virtuix regarding integration of their SDK. At this point we cannot provide any timeline, and are likely to start off with unofficial support only in order to gather feedback from you Omni pros, before moving into a more official support role. Happy? We are thrilled about it ourselves and will keep you updated on the progress! :D

Fantastic news! really looking foward to it :cybereye:

Glad to hear it Braccar, an Saremes that's amazing news! Please let me know if there is any testing I can do to help ya'll out. I don't own the game but I sure would love to help with the development or testing in anyway I can ^.^

Haven't forgotten about Omni support, just too many things to do. We have a question for those of you with an Omni; how do you usually deal with the cable nightmare? In normal room-scale it's easy to step over it whenever needed, but without an actual Omni to test on yet it's kind of hard for us to imagine. Do you prefer to use smooth turning from the controller or just deal with the cable?

Cables aren't an issue at all, I have a overhead Cable Boom as shown in the photo I linked below. I got mine from Virtuix I think it was $79 and is now $99 but I could be mistaken on price.

Thanks, that is really helpful. We actually used to have a similar setup in the office for the regular non-Omni setup in room-scale.

Today's patch introduce very unofficial support for Omni. We don't have an Omni ourselves yet but we have integrated the SDK. If anyone would like to give it a try and give us feedback on how/whether it works or not it would be greatly appreciated :steamhappy:

The "Align Omni" function has been added to Controller Options (find it through opening the Journal).


Cheers,
The Trolls
