Hardware/Software/Network requirements

  • BRCvr is supported by the AltspaceVR platform (see
  • The following hardware choices support AltspaceVR and BRCvr.
    • VR Head Mounted Display (HMD)
      • Advantages: HMDs engage your peripheral vision and proprioception, giving you a strong feeling of immersion in the virtual world. Hand tracking controllers that come with HMDs can add expressiveness to your conversations in the virtual world.
      • Supported HMDs are listed at
      • If purchasing a new HMD consider a mobile unit like the Oculus Quest. While mobile units are less powerful that a tethered ones like the Vive, mobile units are easier to set up, and give you great mobility.
      • Note that delivery time for HMDs can be 2 weeks or longer due to demand during the Covid crisis.
    • Windows PC
    • MacOS
      • AltspaceVR is rumored to be developing a MacOS App in time for BRCvr at the end of August.
      • If the MacOS App is not available in time, you could consider running Windows in a Bootcamp partition that you setup on your Mac, or you could purchase a virtualization App like Parallels to run Windows virtually.
  • AltspaceVR App
    • For Oculus Quest or Oculus Go, you can download the AltspaceVR App for free from the Oculus store.
    • Other HMDs have other ways to obtain the AltspaceVR App.
    • For Windows, you can download the AltspaceVR App for free from the Microsoft Store
  • Network
    • AltspaceVR should run on almost any Broadband connection
    • The speed of connection will affect how fast you can teleport from one space to another in BRCvr.
    • On slower connections (less than 10 Mbps) it may take a minute or more to download the assets for the space you are teleporting to. With faster connections, download time is proportionally faster.
    • The AltspaceVR App might lose connection to the AltspaceVR Server your broadband connection frequently loses a series of packets,. In this case the App will try to reconnect automatically. If this fails you may need to quit the AltspaceVR App and restart it.
    • If you experience frequent reconnects, or if your AltspaceVR session starts to act oddly, the try the command ‘ping -n 100' to test the quality of your broadband connection. It is probably okay to see occasional errors like ‘Request timed out’. But if you see a stretch of these errors, this could explain the frequent reconnects. In this case you should check the quality of your wi-fi connection, and ask your broadband service provider to run a test to your receiving equipment (e.g. Cable Modem).

Oculus Mobile Setup

  • If you just purchased a Quest or a Go, follow the step-by-step setup instructions provided by Oculus.
  • You may also google ‘Quest setup’ to find videos and other resources to familiarize yourself with the procedure.
  • It’s been my experience that the device can hang during setup if you accidentally miss a step. E.g. it could continuously tell you ‘downloading updates’ for 10 minutes or more.
    • If you get stuck like this, you may need to do a ‘factory reset’ of your Quest (google ‘factory reset Quest’ to find out how) and start the setup process again.
  • Once your HMD is set up, I suggest you try out a few of the tutorials in the Library.
