This is going to be a comprehensive event, so make sure to charge your devices and have your charging cable ready, so that you don’t run out of juice!
The event is hosted on the AltspaceVR platform. It is available for most VR headsets, and also without a VR headset, on Windows desktops.
Some users had success running it on Linux desktops, by downloading it through Steam and turning on "Steam Play" for all apps and games through Steam settings. Your mileage may vary!
PREPARATION IS REQUIRED to join the event! Please follow the following steps to prepare, BEFORE THE EVENT STARTS, if you plan to join:
On a desktop/mobile web browser, create a new AltspaceVR account (https://account.altvr.com/users/sign_up
) if you haven't already, or Log in (https://account.altvr.com/users/sign_in
) if you have.
On this event web page, click the RSVP button. YOU MUST RSVP BEFORE THE EVENTS STARTS, otherwise you won't be able to join. You can't RSVP after it starts!
Download AltspaceVR (https://altvr.com/get-altspacevr/
) for your platform.
Start the AltspaceVR app and log in with the same account you used on step 1.
Go through the first-time tutorial if you didn't yet. This is required to join the event. You'll select an avatar, then follow the blue arrows on screen to learn how to navigate the world.
When you're done with the tutorial, the Altspace menu should be available through the bottom-right corner. Navigate to EVENTS menu and then the INTERESTED tab, and you should see this event show up there. You're ready! Once the event time arrives, a "join" button will appear here!
