Thank you Scawen for your answer (only Host update; works fine)
I'm using Avast too but the commercial/business version (Avast Business Antivirus Pro). I don't get any warning for that exe file. Perhaps you have enabled "Scan for potentially unwanted programs (PUPs)" and/or "Enable Hardened Mode" with the option "Aggressive"?
But: I can not reproduce that behavior with these enabled options, too.

by Scawen : I've asked you to post less but it seems you are posting even more.
A test with the AntVR Transformers (VR Headset) works still fine, too.
Thanks for the update
But I have following issue (current version 0.6T and with this/latest test patch 0.6T5):
If I change the vertical field of view of the headset from automatic to around 83° (or higher), objects on the edge flickers. Perhaps a better description is that objects are faded in/out too early/late. That pretty much irritates. At around 80° it is still OK. It is difficult to describe this effect. :-) Perhaps you can reproduce that with an other headset? But that could be simply an issue from the AntVR headset, too.
I'll try that tomorrow in the Vive. But I'm interested to know, why do you want to increase the field of view? I would think that would just make it wrong, in the sense of being different from reality, so the world would seem to rotate around a bit as you move your head around.
In fact some people might say we shouldn't even have that setting in there, it's more left over from the early days of VR when I was writing it for the DK1 and had to give the users some control over it so I could understand how to set it correctly.
It's because this headset doesn't have a positional tracking like Vive or other headsets have. This system use a special "carpet" to track such movements. But if I drive a car, that system is completely useless. There is no real room scaling as for example at Vive instead.
For example I can't lean outside the window nor can I look closer to the dashboard. This movementation aren't tracked. I can of course look around (up/down, left/right), but nothing else. Sounds worse than it is. ;-)
It does not really matter. If you find a (simple) solution: great; if not, that's also good.
Even without positional tracking, there should be a 'correct' FOV (hopefully the one supplied by the drivers). You can see what I mean if you increase the FOV a lot, e.g. maximum, then just turn your head left and right. Your should perceive that the world seems to move left or right as well (and/or seems to warp a bit).
With FOV too low there is the opposite effect. But what is the default FOV from the AntVR? I ask because you are talking about numbers near 80 degrees, but 80 is currently the minimum user setting. Maybe I need to allow a bit less, for headsets with less vertical FOV.
I can reproduce the object culling issue at the edges when FOV is increased. It takes the culling from the default input values, and for some reasons it might be a bit tricky to change, or a bit too risky at this point. We hope to release a new full version tomorrow so I want to keep any more changes very small.
little off/ I have uninstalled my main antivirus software and disabled Windows Defender (Firewall is on) in Windows 10. It's a kind of a experiment of mine. Four months later and everything is still fine and running fast and smooth as never before with an AV, at some point probably I will do a full system scan with some free AV, but I'm pretty sure my system is clean.
I'm not saying to go ahead and uninstall your AV, it depends on many things, but in my case I think that is the best for me.
No, we are several months away from the graphics update.
The full version we will release is just like T5 with a couple more fixes.
It was extremely important to do this update because of the VR problems that made LFS not work, or in the case of the Odyssey+ could cause eye strain. We don't want that, so that's the reason for this small interruption in my Graphics development.
And the good news is we have this quick little update with quite a few fixes and a couple of new features.
You guys still use antivirus software?
It's been a scam since late '90, lol
Turn that crap off (or better, stop paying for it) and monitor your activities manually.
Thanks Scawen for the update! Looking forward to future releases!
Seeing that you've enhanced the screenshot capturing algorithm, is it possible to investigate the reason as to why clicking the 'Game' tab option in the settings causes LFS to hang for the first time? is it possible that it's similar in some way to the old screen shot capturing method? (Since it involves disk read/write)
Players above have also asked about the possibility of increasing the player limit, I think having 48 players on the track (as in 48 connections) would be awesome.
I've tested the patch and everything is working as expected (non VR features).
