Just moving a windows dialog box around the screen feels like I'm on dialup or something. Far worse than using RDP on the same WAN.

    All I know about our system right now is I had to install the VMWare Horizon Client and connect to a server and login with my normal credentials. I was told this VM has 2gb video memory. Beyond that I don't know the details of the system. What would I need to ask to understand how we're implementing it?

    VMWare Horizon client is the software client for accessing it. Thats the program you use if you arent getting a hardware client, like a Zero Client or a Thin CLient. Both hardware versions perform better.

    Im certainly not an expert at tweaking the VDI implementation itself, in terms of configuring the hypervisor, and what settings need to be changed to make graphical response and lag better. But yeah, welcome to the game. Lots of people can throw the hardware together. Making it run well is another story.

    If its worse than RDP, they dont have it setup well, lol.

    We just released a new alpha version. You'll find it at the bottom of the download page. It includes the often-requested improvement of indirect lighting, reflections and grass rendering. We're happy to hear your feedback regarding stability and your visual opinion! Please send it to us via email to support at Enscape3d.com, so that we do not overload this thread. Thank you

    Was/is it crazy fast when looking around? Even with the input settings AND render quality cranked all the way up, I can barely keep the scene centered. A slight movement of the mouse sends my view flying off the screen.

    Yes, BUT... When we tested it, it was a prepackaged EXE from another machine. So we couldnt adjust the mouse input sensitivity.

    The walking speed is indeed fixed at the EXE export. I guess you mean "lower movement speed" by "cranking up" - actually if you reduce the movement / mouse speed it should be incredible slow.

    Picture's worth a few words, or something like that. These are the settings I assumed would make it easier to navigate. I think it did but it's still fast.

    We've had the same issues running through a remote desktop connection. The mouse sensitivity is turned all the way down and it's still too fast to control. Our IT setup here has us using remote desktop from the conference rooms to run the heavy programs on our workstations. That way they're not maintaining extra licenses and hardware they don't need, so this ends up being an issue for team meetings. For client presentations we have a gaming laptop designated for VR use with an oculus.

    Ditto.

    Save the Oculus.

    I'm thinking of moving a 'proper' machine into there, the room is long overdue one, and after finally getting our heads round our new screen's adjustment settings, the picture deserves it.
