Last time this came up, I suggested contacting the Virtual Desktop and OVRDrop developers. I have no doubt they already have the interest and the technology to splice in.
@mmorselli Last time I used the headset my VR PC had not been used in a while. I was more than a little concerned it would turn into yet another day trip down a rat hole to fix whatever Valve/SteamVR broke this time. So far, it worked, but I have yet to retest the flight sim. I am still worried.
Running SteamVR not a sin? Maybe. Depending on SteamVR is definitely a sin.
I want VirtualDesktop or something like that to work without SteamVR or any other middleware.
@SweViver By the way, you may be getting into more of a challenge than you realize trying to implement that yourself. There are a lot of bugs caused by things like a few different varieties of UAC prompts, multiple monitors, really funny things like X11 display servers for MSW, VNC clients (both native and X11) doing weird things, VirtualBox being somewhat weird, and many other things, that VirtualDesktop and OVRDrop developers have worked through over the years. How do I know those bugs exist? I have hit every single one of them, I have no doubt there are others, and I rely on things like VirtualBox for my ‘ship computer’ panel VM every time I use seated VR.
MSW is a terrible OS by the way.
