We've just pushed hotfix 1.6.2 from our Public Preview to Live. This is intended to fix some startup issues that were reported with the HTC Vive.
Thanks to everyone out there who helped with finding and reporting any issues found with the new updates, the amount of positive and constructive feedback has been wonderful. We're currently working on a 1.6.3 update with a few more fixes reported by the community, and we're hoping to have that out as soon as possible, possibly even tomorrow.
Thanks again to all our players!
Current known issues:
While this update improves Vive startup times quite a bit, it won't make it as perfect as we like due to functionalities out of our control. Current expected behavior is you will see a loading message within the Vive while the logo movies play on the desktop. You will then see a brief flash of the menu in one eye as VR gets set up, then it should quickly jump fully into VR. The brief flash should be fixed in our next update.
Windows 7 users:
An issue has appeared with windows 7 seeing an error of 'The procedure entry point CreateDXGIFactory2 could not be located in the dynamic link library dxgi.dll' on start up. This error should not affect the game, and can be closed with no issue. The error comes from an issue we've found in the OSVR plugin. We're currently working on getting the offending file updated, and hope to have the fix in for the 1.6.3 update.
