We're working on a major update launching in a week or two. Bigscreen Multiplayer is going to be massively improved, with a completely new networking / streaming engine (flawless 1080p30 for everyone without any CPU usage!) and a new cinema theater environment.

- Improved controller (Touch/Vive) detection; requires motion before displaying the Tablet interface
- Capture mode now works when tablet showing
- Camera no longer goes to selfie mode when avatar creator opened + controllers
- Require both controllers for 3D avatar creator
- Hand model / controller hides after 20 sec idle
- Hide hands & controllers when input disabled

Bigscreen update with bug fixes and improvements

Hey everyone!

We're working on a major update launching in a week or two. Bigscreen Multiplayer is going to be massively improved, with a completely new networking / streaming engine (flawless 1080p30 for everyone without any CPU usage!) and a new cinema theater environment. We will be needing alpha testers, so please join our Bigscreen Discord if you'd like to help test this out over the coming weeks.

But until then, today's patch has a lot of bug fixes and UX improvements based on user feedback.

Release notes for Bigscreen Beta v. 0.16.1

  • Improved 3D Drawing marker orientation for Vive users to be more natural
  • Shrunk down the VR Avatar creator
  • Avatar accessories (hairs, glasses, etc.) can also be applied to your head. Grab an item and place it on your own head
  • Fixed bugs with loading skybox environments (appeared black)
  • Improvements to the Camera tools
  • Fixed bugs with the hands, laser pointers
  • Many minor bug fixes and UX improvements

If you like Bigscreen, please leave us a review!

If you have any issues or bugs, you can email me directly or post on our [Steam forums here.

We're looking to grow the team, so if you're a full-stack Javascript engineer or 3D artist, we have a ton of job openings.
