Something special is waiting mainly for colorblind friends in next build of Virtual-O.
Improved map images. Added simulation of overprint and improved colors
Did you ever wonder how to get your map into Virtual-O?
If answer is yes than please read this post carefully.
We would like to establish contact with map owners, event organizers, clubs simply with everyone who would like to share maps for Virtual-O.
It’s an great opportunity how get new exciting maps for training in Virtual-O
At the same time you will get space in map presentation video which is played when player is choosing your map.
This video is medium where we want to show info about map itself, club etc. Photos/short videos from real terrain or interesting places from that place. And most importantly you can propagate your
orienteering event here that is somehow related to this area or your club. Of course we are only on start so don’t hesitate to come with your own ideas here.
And most importantly you will help to propagate orienteering itself as Virtual-O will have chance to present these exciting terrains to world.
We are not searching only for toughest terrains. It’s very important to convert some good beginners maps too with appropiate difficulty.
LIDAR based maps are little less demanding on conversion time so if you are deciding which map than choose LIDAR one. But it’s not mandatory.
If you are interested please contact us on this email. It would be great if you can attach preview image of the map too:
Today I would like to explain some competitions/courses concepts.
Virtual-O has two different types of courses. Local and Online.
Please note that re-run result wouldn’t be uploaded to cloud. As only first run offers fair conditions for all players.
Here is screenshot of selected course which is ready to perform your first run. It has status Ready and type Online. Conditions are greyed out as they are read-only.
In second screenshot I have selected course where only Re-run is available. Its status is Rerun and type Online. Conditions are now editable.
Default value of mouse smoothing is 40. It’s smoothing mouse input over 10 frames. If you will set it to 0 just raw mouse input will be used but that can introduce jerky movement depends on your configuration. Some players prefer raw input in games like CS so now you have this option if you want.
