TROUBLESHOOTING:

A. Connectivity

  • Ensure phone and PC are on the same network (WiFi).
  • If using tethered connection, make sure USB cables and ports are functional.
  • USB tethering may require you to update Windows USB drivers from your phone’s manufacturer. Otherwise, the connection might fail or be slower.
  • If you are using WiFi network, please make sure your signal is strong enough.
  • We strongly recommend users to use 5Ghz band WiFi for CLOVR to ensure the best output performance.

B. Black screen \ crash issue

  • If you are using laptop with NVIDIA/AMD video card, make sure everything runs on the dedicated video card and not the integrated Intel HD Graphics.
  • Make sure that your GPU drivers are up to date. This includes your integrated graphics.
  • Currently CLOVR captures the entire screen, therefore please make sure the game is running under “Borderless Fullscreen” mode.

C. Other recommendations

For best results, you will need to adjust the quality settings to match your setup. Here are some suggestions:

 

  • Decrease CLOVR’s image quality scale in the settings section.
  • Connect your mobile device via USB Tethering or 5Ghz AC band wifi.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

1. What was the reason behind the name CLOVR?
To be completely honest, we chose CLOVR because it sounded really cool and it had the letters “VR” within it. We started with the concept of the lucky four-leaf clover, which had close ties to gaming. But more importantly, our goal was to really transport our users into what we call the fourth dimension of VR gaming.

 

2. Does CLOVR support Steam VR games?
Currently, CLOVR is focused on allowing users to experience existing non-VR games in virtual reality. For games created with VR in mind, this is something CLOVR is looking to integrate in the near future.

 

3. Does CLOVR support Google Cardboard?
Yes. In fact, CLOVR supports most VR headsets in the market right now, as long as the headset uses a mobile display. Headsets that have built-in displays such as Oculus Rift are not currently supported with CLOVR.

 

4. What is the output latency?
16 milliseconds, which is about 60FPS with FHD mode running under recommended hardware specification. This means you’ll be able to enjoy smooth gameplay with little to no lag.

 

5. Is there any difference between using WiFi and tethered connection?
CLOVR was made with users’ experience in mind, which is why we always suggest going wireless when VR gaming. In fact, if you are using a 5Ghz band on WiFi connection, there will no performance difference compared to a tetherd connection.
