Oh, Friday was mostly spent playing the London Heist on VR Worlds, which was brilliant. I'm sure I looked a right idiot ducking and diving behind a virtual desk.

Superhot is out this week. Pre-orders are 20% off; £16 for the 2d version, £16 for the VR version, or £27 for both together (they are different games with different levels and stuff.) I know GazChap speaks highly of it in VR.

Yep, it's fantastic - although I've not really played it since completing it (even though since then they've released a "forever update" which adds endless mode etc.)

Even in Batman you can still always recentre by holding the Options button on the control pad.

That didn't work for me, it just took me to the special batman calibration which insisted I should be facing to the left.

Really? It should be an override on everything if you're using the headset. You have to properly hold it down though.

It definitely works, I've done it loads of times for people when they've been on the headset with the Move controllers and I've been 'supervising' with the pad in my hand.

ETA: I looked it up and I suspect you've been using the wrong button. The official support page mentions that the in-game calibration can be re-run at any time if you hold down the Start button, but you want the Options button for the global level recentre command.

Ah, I'd kind of assumed that start acted the same as option (I thought I'd used the start button to re-centre in other games).
I definitely got GJ to pass me a pad, as I was aware that, strictly, I wasn't holding option, but start, and didn't think I'd had any luck with that either, but maybe I'd already given up by that point.

Yeah, I mean if you're going to use the strict definition it's fair to say that one button probably isn't actually a completely different one. Y'know, if you wanted to be all pedantic about it. ;)

It's the right-hand thumb button on the technodicks.

The buttons on the Move controllers are just such a pain in the arse I don't bother with them. The trigger and Move button themselves are fine of course but the others are just horrible. Any time I try to use the face buttons I always get the wrong one (I'm looking at you I Expect You to Die) and the Start Select/Options buttons I can just never find. The movement sensing stuff is fine but the button layout is a pretty shite design all in.

Batman deals with this quite nicely at the beginning by drawing the controllers for you.

I don't think I meant thumb button. I probably press it with my finger.

I'm really confused now, if I hold down Options, on the pad, then it just takes me into the Batman calibration, it doesn't re-centre the display.

That's not much of a defence; regardless of how you're playing a game, if you need to look at the controller to work out where the buttons are it's a bad experience.

So just to be clear: you're getting the same behaviour from holding down the Start or Options button on the pad?

It's the select button on the Technodicks (Move controllers).

[edit] Sorry, I'm not paying attention.

On the pad, I think you have to tap options to recenter. Holding it down a bit gets you the calibration.

I think.

Just in case it helps, if you press the PlayStation button when in VR there should be an option on the quick menu that pops up labelled [Adjust PlayStation VR] that might also let you recentre the view properly. Obviously that's less convenient than just holding a button down but better than nothing I suppose.

Nope, on pad it's definitely hold down to recalibrate

Wait, hold to auto-centre

I think I tried this when it went won't the other night, but it appeared that batman and the actual psvr calibration were completely independent, I'll check later though.

Fair enough; I've no idea why that would happen. I did a bit of Googling and apparently 'hold Options to re-centre' isn't a universally implemented feature so it might not work in some games but I'm like 99% sure I've done it in Batman specifically. That's not very helpful though I realise.

I played some version of it on the PC years ago (possibly some kind of free beta?) and just did not get it at all; but I've watched quite a lot of footage of the VR version and it seemed to make much more sense in that context so I might pick it up.

I am also enjoying the 2D version, but the VR version is something else.
