    While I fully support you in wanting a supported version in your preferred Windows version.  I really hope they actually work to get everyone running on their supported operating systems before they work on a beta for an OS they never promised to support.  I have had my VR headset for 2 weeks now and am on Windows 10 with all the specs required to run any VR application at the required framerate but yet I cannot use it until they figure out why I as well as many others cannot run the FOVE because we have more than one video card.  Just my two cents for what it's worth...

    Hi Kelley, 

    Hope you get your multi-GPU issues sorted out soon. SLI can be a bit of a bear at times. 

    During the KS campaign, the stated requirements to run FOVE VR were: 

    PC Compatible: No high-powered gaming rigs required for AAA rendering at VR resolutions

    PC REQUIREMENTS: A computer with dedicated graphics card with display port output capable of running modern, graphics intensive games at WQHD (2560 x 1440) at (100FPS or greater is recommended.

    There was no mention of any specific OS, beyond "Windows" and the Windows logo. The dev kit image on the KS shows Windows, Mac and Linux logos (Along with Unity, Unreal and CryEngine) which encouraged me to back the project. The Win 8.1 and 10 change was made well after the project was funded. Nowhere did FOVE specify any OS version in the KS for any vendor.  

    I backed the project because of the cross platform and multi OS approach. I'm not mad, I'm not making demands, nor am I making any accusations. They say the tech team is working on a Win 7 Beta and I'm good with that. I'm not expecting it today and fully expect them to prioritize. 

    In the end, we should both get what we need to get it working. Cheers.

    I totally agree with SJP on the mentioned points. Moreover, if there had been any indication on the KS campaign that Win7 will not be supported, I would not have backed the project at all. But I'm fine with a lower priority, and will gladly do my best to help with testing.
