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.
Low light and Windows Mixed Reality
I’ve just read that low light situations will mess up my Windows Mixed Reality... and yes my headset is unstable under those conditions. There was no requirement for light levels stated in any purchase, or marketing literature or advertisement.
If certain ambient levels were required, I would never have bought the device. If true, this predicate requirement completely invalidates my use of WMR. I need to fly my X-Plane simulator in exactly those conditions, low light. I cannot, and will not use my simululator, or games in any but a low light environment.
N.B. You need to allow us to enter our own tags instead of choosing from a list. Separating tag entries with a comma, as in 99.9% of decent web sites allows this...here it does not work.
