We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Spatial Mapping In The Dark
Hey guys, so I recently decided to try to make a HoloLens version of the popular horror game Slender since I feel that'd be a perfect way to play that game. However, this is a game that's best played in the dark. The problem is, when I tested the game, I discovered that in the darkness, even semi darkness, the HoloLens spatial mapping does not work. It can't seem to detect anything at all and as a result none of my games or apps will function because it will keep attempting to search for the environment around me. Just wondering if this is a definite limitation of the HoloLens or if there's a way around this?
