Google Code shutting down affects VR repository

I did a pass on the virtual reality library here, in preparation for supporting the Vive (and potentially other HMDs) by abstracting out the Oculus Rift:

I also posted about this in the Steam VR / Vive thread, where we can continue discussion of implementing its support.

No, the occulusOVR project works against standard 3.1 since the swapBuffer thingy. As @phroot says he uses his own to avoid being tied to our changes. Which is understandable.

Hi, I once registered on this site in the year 2012, now I am back.:smile:
I noticed that some tutorials do not work now (for example the TerrainGridTest.java [But I guess this is not the only tutorial broken. If it helps, I could test all tutorials and tell you which do not work.]).

The error message is: “Warning: Failed to set root path http://jmonkeyengine.googlecode.com/files/TerrainGridTestData.zip

I searched on Google and in the forums, but I found nothing related to this issue. I think the problem is related to the topic of this thread though …

I am using the latest jMonkeyEngine SDK 3.0 and I freshly installed it today.

I just noticed the same problem in “TestPostWaterLake.java” and “TestSceneWater.java”. The link http://jmonkeyengine.googlecode.com/files/wildhouse.zip is broken.

In “TestOctree.java” the quake3level.zip cannot be found, too.

UPDATE:

I tested all jme3tests.

The problem with the broken links exists for these tests:

Warning: Failed to set root path http://jmonkeyengine.googlecode.com/files/wildhouse.zip

  • TestSceneLoading.java
  • TestPostWaterLake.java
  • TestSceneWater.java
  • TestFog.java
  • TestPostFiltersCompositing.java

Warning: Failed to set root path http://jmonkeyengine.googlecode.com/files/TerrainGridTestData.zip

  • TerrainGridTest.java

Warning: Failed to set root path http://jmonkeyengine.googlecode.com/files/town.zip

  • TestOnlineJar.java
  • HelloCollision.java

Warning: Failed to set root path http://jmonkeyengine.googlecode.com/files/quake3level.zip

  • TestQ3.java
  • TestOctree.java

Additionally, following tests do not function on my rig (they crash or cause heavy problems):

  • TerrainTestReadWrite.java
  • TestBatchLod.java
  • TestMultiRenderTarget.java
  • TestMultiplesFilters.java
  • TestNiftyExamples.java
  • TestNiftyToMesh.java
  • TestSerialization.java
  • TestThroughput.java
  • TestAssetLinkNode.java
  • TestHoveringTank.java
  • TestUrlLoading.java

Are these tests fixed in jme 3.1? Should I add these issues to github (https://github.com/jMonkeyEngine/jmonkeyengine/issues ?)

Anyways, nice to see the engine evolving. Keep up the good work, men! :slight_smile:
