Post news RSS PowerBeatsVR Update: ANT+ Support for Heart Rate Monitors, Automatic Playspace Scaling, and More

You can now use ANT+ heart rate monitors as well to track your heart rate in-game. We removed the two distinct playspace sizes and player sizes and implemented automatic playspace scaling based on your chaperone/boundary setting and fine-adjustable player height. And we added FLAC support besides OGG, WAV, and MP3 to the automatic beatmap generator.
