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.
Actiongram Beta update
A new update to Actiongram Beta is now available in the store!
Here are the release notes:
What's new (September 22, 2016)
Use the thrilling new horror-themed content for all of your spooky storytelling needs leading up to Halloween. Update includes Grim Reaper, possessed doll, detached eyeball, zombie arm, and more!
The Advanced UI option will now show additional UI buttons for fine control versions of Move, Rotate, and Resize, plus a new Advanced Rotate method that makes it easier to orient holograms in any direction. The names shown for these buttons are also the voice commands to use those features.
Known issues in build 1.1609.909.0:
The app might become unresponsive or restart when resuming. Save your scene before leaving Actiongram if you wish to ensure you can continue with those holograms after leaving the application.
The app might take an extended period of time to start on a slow network connection. If uncertain, you can verify the application is loading by observing the cursor. It will turn from a dot to a circle when your hand moves to the ready position.
Beginning to move a hologram when your hand is near the edge of the tracking area can result in the hologram snapping to an unexpected location. Start movements in front of your body to avoid this.
Exiting Actiongram while recording a video can result in the inability to record videos when resuming the app. Stop recording with the "Stop Recording" voice command or a double air tap before performing a bloom or putting the device into standby with the power button.
Downloading a large number of holograms from the gallery simultaneously can lead to the application crashing. Download a handful or fewer holograms at one time.
The Zombie Arm holograms currently have incorrect audio, which you may wish to mute.
The "Spider Rears Up" hologram currently has incorrect audio, which you may wish to mute.
The "Zombie Arm Emerges" hologram can sometimes disappear when viewed from certain angles. For best results, try to keep it centered in the middle of your shot.
The app may need to be restarted if you save the stage while some holograms are downloading. Wait until all holograms have downloaded before saving the stage.
The app might not appear in the Start Menu. You can work around this by using the Windows Device Portal to uninstall the app and download it again from the Store.
