Valve has released a new update to its SteamVR software in the form of version 1.13.9, bringing with it a number of bug fixes, tweaks and more importantly an easier way to re-centre and reorientate your playing space when required. The latest release also includes the previously announced preliminary OpenXR support.
“SteamVR 1.13 makes it convenient to re-center and re-orient your play area across all games. Check out the new button in the dashboard and try it for yourself. Index users should try out Room View 3D, which more accurately shows objects at their true locations and sizes. Please share your thoughts about this experimental feature, here. For developers, SteamVR 1.13 introduces preliminary OpenXR support. Over the next few years, OpenXR will enable developers to ship a single build of their game that works well across multiple VR headsets, and will also ease friction in creating polished VR experiences.”
The latest SteamVR update inlcudes :
– Added “reset standing position” button to the dashboard that allows users to adjust standing position and orientation for the current SteamVR session.
– Minor Camera Settings cleanup
– Updated localized strings in many languages.
– Bug Fix: Improved dashboard stability.
– Bug Fix: Fixed issue where HMD incorrectly showed as locked (under Windows Segment Heap allocator)
