How To Meet Up in VR!
« on: June 07, 2016, 05:21:36 pm »
Currently Oculus' social system has no way of messaging or grouping up. We highly encourage everyone to log into Teamspeak (server: thefuriousangels.com) when jumping into VR! I've seen a lot of you online in the Rift and checking games out, but not coming on Teamspeak to check out the multiplayer games and social experiences. They are not to be missed!

If you are only on a GearVR, that's a slightly different story, but you can still log in on your computer to let us know to meet up with you in AltSpace.

No doubt these social features will eventually be added, but in the meantime, feel free to utilize the tools we have. I also recommend getting Kik and joining our text group there. My Oculus name is Tbone if you haven't added me.

We are also logged into Steam, but when playing Oculus titles, it's hard to read Steam messages (though I usually will still hear the notification)!

Has anyone figured out how to keybind Discord with the touch controllers?

Unfortunately, no. . .

We've been using voice activation in discord while playing VR games. If I am not mistaken the majority of VR games have a VOIP function built in.

Yeah, voice activation is actually preferred for VR. Which is kind of funny because for regular gaming it was always taboo.

I believe Tbone uses VoiceAttack to give commands to turn on and off discord sound. I have yet to set mine up but I have a license key for that software too.

Don't believe everything you think.

Discord and VoiceAttack is certainly the way to go. Oculus should be adding Rooms and Parties to Rift soon (they've already added it to GearVR). This will help us group up on the fly, but it will still be good to be in the habit of jumping on Discord whenever you want to do some gaming. I'll usually send out a text blast via Kik and then wait in the channel for people to show up. Sometimes I'll send out a notification via Discord as well.
