Request for Vive Dev Kit


Recommended Posts

I chatted with a representative through the live chat support regarding an issue with my dev kit (This is the very first dev kit, the one before the Vive pre. As in the one with hexagonal controllers and loud lighthouses). With no solution to the issue apart from making a thread about requesting hardware.

The thing is with my dev kit as mentioned above is the very first dev kit. I've had it since around when these dev kits went out. And is now starting to fall apart. And become really hard to develop on. I cannot test any UE4 project in VR because compositor crashes and crashes about every 5 minutes with Unity. As said by the representative “There is a possibility that the Vive is already defective or cannot support the news updates for the drivers”. Alongside with a bunch of other issues I can list if needed. Is it possible to get a consumer Vive. I can't afford to by one and rely on it to make a living.

A bit about myself and what I do. I'm a freelance game developer in Brisbane. My passion is in designing and developing engaging and entertain experiences for players to enjoy. Along with experimenting with the latest and greatest tech to deliver new and unique experiences. I develop VR games, training applications and educational applications. My portfolio linked below shows my previous work. I am currently working on VR game to launched early next year and a VR training application.
