First thing to know, I don’t really want to backup the entire perforce database since it’s huge and requires a lot of extra steps. I’m only backing up the latest version in case a doom fire happens to my apartment.
The scheduled backup is run on my p4 server A, in order to run a scheduled backup plan to push my newest project version to server B.
Create client(aka workspace) for the server A itself.
Made this to learn mql4, while filling some of my needs for the flexibility of Market Profile.
Funny story: Any form of debugger is absolutely non-existed. I had to write debug output for every function. Continue reading →
A ruthless way to modify your Oculus Rift’s IPD (Interpupillary Distance)
TL;DR: Pictures say it all.
IPD (interpupillary distance) is basically the distance between the center of your two eyeballs. The average value is 63mm~65mm, which Oculus Rift DK is designed for(64mm). If yours is too wide or narrow beyond that you’ll notice how the image in Rift doesn’t focus too well horizontally, which is uncomfortable and may lead to sickness.
My IPD is extremely wide, 72mm (please, I’m still handsome). After a while’s use I knew this is not something I can just ignore so I did some research. The problem turned out to be pretty common, this post shows plastic adapters user bwhill designed to adjust the IPD to specified value. But he’s only selling 3D-printed products not sharing or selling the blueprint and it’s too much of a wait to ship to china. So I penned a few lines and plugged in my heat knife, it’s not pretty but it had the job done.
So yea I got the idea becaues I wanted to deploy some close-up shots in my small project, but close-ups are always a pain to matchmove according to my experience. We know that this device’s resolution is quite limited, so does it work?
Couldn’t find anybody done the same thing using this low cost toy on Internet, or at least they didn’t post it. So here you go, the result turns out neat and I’m really happy with it. Notice at the end of the clip, the shot is pretty close and it worked fine. Video:
Finally have a multi-language plugin installed, which Can’t be run without a fancy switching button. I photoshopped an old school pink neon sign, with color picked from Drive =D 多语言达成！所以没有一个漂亮的切换图标怎么行？做了一个old school的粉色霓虹灯, 色彩取的 Drive 上的=D Continue reading →
