 BZ on the Vive is great. Easily my favorite VR title. I love it. But I have a suggestion for the tank skins and bobble heads. I 've asked a lot of people in CO-OP and they all agree it would be great (and hilarious). I would like to suggest a Donald Trump tank pack. It should feature a logo reading "Make America Great Again" on the tank (I prefer spray canned on???? . And skins with various  blue suits and an extremely long red tie at the front. The turret should be flaming orange (or maybe platinum, it keeps changing) and designed to look like a bad weave.

You could put decals on the side with a few of his failed business ventures (Trump University, Trump steaks, Trump mortgages, Trump magazine, Trump airline or Trump vodka. The list is endless (really????). And a Donald bobble head that wags it's finger and maybe a (shirtless) Putin. They would be awesome. You could even do an Ivanka or a Hillary. That list is extensive too! And I am sure you could come up with loads of other ideas.

Forget 99 cents, I will happily pay $10 or more for that tank pack. I think this could be a bit of a gold mine for you and a lot of fun for someone to design. Please, please do it. I love the game but will be in heaven if I can see a squad of Trump tanks in front of me! Cheers.

 I can confirm it is definitely my chair occluding my lighthouses. I switched chairs and had zero issues with grey screens. All good.

Cheers.

 I switched to DX11 (I take it that means unchecking the d3d12 box). I still see the grey screens. And they are all grey. I had previously thought it was the steam screen. It isn't, just an all grey one. I notice the same screen if I raise my hands to the headset and block the head sensors. I have a chair that reaches up to my head. And although my sensors are seven feet up and right over me I  think I may be blocking them somehow. I have a low chair and will repeat this tomorrow night and see if I can go without any grey screens.

Cheers.

Yes, the screen always returns. Typically 3-5 seconds or so of blank screen. Only on that single instance (connection error) was I taken out of the game (ie back to the launching area where you can configure things). I will switch DX versions and get back to you (hopefully tonight).

Cheers.

 Every once in a while I am seeing a blank screen (on average one or two per game (hexagon)). The game disappears and I only see the grey steam vr screen you get before the game loads. I believe the game continues as I can still be damaged. Once I saw a connection error (120110 or something and in that instance it booted me back to the menu) but every other time it's just a blank. Am I losing connection? I am playing in online mode. Have yet to see anyone online. Is there a time when others are playing? I am on Pacific Standard Time.

Cheers.

 You can actually play with KB and Mouse. Check my other post regarding using them. You need to have a XIM4 however. It is kind of unrelated to the steamvr message that you need one.

 So if I want to turn the tank I use either A or D. I believe that turns each track. If I want to turn the turret I sweep to one side with the mouse.   Much like FPS games, you use them together to strafe. Never actually watched my tank in third person so this is just my concept of what is happening. But I am pretty sure it is accurate.

Cheers.

Sorry I didn't address your question directly in that last post. No, the mouse doesn't perform like a joystick and no I don't lift it at all. It is more like a look feature. On the xbox controller the up and down and turret turning feature are on the right joystick. Forward and back are turret up and down. Left and right are turn the turret (I believe). With the mouse its forward and back to raise and lower the turret and side to side to turn it. But the movement is intuitive and very precise. I can  keep the recticle on moving targets or pick things out of the air while in motion with ease. The mouse movement translates better to game play.

 The mouse movement is very much like the original BZ or BZ2 on PC (or even some of the FPS games of the past). It directs the aiming recticle (turret). I use keypad ASDW for forward back and side to side. The mouse and keyboard work well combined for strafing. I remember the old BZ1 and 2 had a leveling feature which you needed to make the mouse level properly (if I am remembering that correctly). I was concerned something like that would be an issue here but it isn't. It just works. I still want to tweak it with the XIM4 config but out of the box it's a huge improvement. It makes the game more immersive because I am not always struggling with the controller. Part of that is my lack of experience with the Xbox controller, but I think this is just a better way to control the tank. You just instantly get it.

  Well after playing around a little I can happily report that you CAN use a XIM4 to play BattlezoneVR on an HTC Vive with a keyboard and mouse. I used the Elite Sniper 4 translator (comes by default with the XIM4 manager)  and modified the config to allow me to use a game pad (Logitech G13) and a Logitech G500 mouse to run BZVR.  Based on the XIM4's specs I believe you could use any keyboard of your choosing and probably a joystick (I have yet to test my joystick). I was not very comfortable with the Xbox controller and this has instantly made the game much more enjoyable to play.  Aiming with the mouse is excellent. The game has gone for good to great for me!

 Just finished a few hours on BZ VR (on vive). Love the game but I am old school and find the xbox controller difficult to use. Is there any way to use a keyboard and mouse? Or any plans to put it in as an option down the road? I have a XIM4 and will try to get it to work with the xbox controller and kb mouse.. If anyone has done it already please let me know. Kudos to the devs. The game is great so far.
