Owning an arcade is a challenging business. You not only have to provide an excellent customer services, but also need to have the right tools on hand. As SVR already provides a lot options to save money from your daily operations, it is now time to provide your customers with an excellent VR experience from the first second.
Once you install V2.0, you have to navigate to the dashboard and enable the 3D experience for each of your VR stations.
Head over to Administration >> VR Stations in out Simple View

or Administration >> Arcade Setup >> VR Stations in the Advanced View

Once in, click on the Edit button for whichever station you want to have the 3D Environment/Island on. Then click on the drop down menu next to the “3D Environment” option and choose SynthesisVR 3D Island option.

If you would like to play your own audio files, you could add the “playfile:” prefix to all “speak” related parameters.
“speak_handset_take_during_tutorial”: “Use this handset to call the arcade operator for assistance”
This line would lead to a text-to-speech saying the text on the right.
If you have a recorded file and that file is located under: C:\audio\call_for_help.wav , then the following setting would be valid:
“speak_handset_take_during_tutorial”: “playfile: C:\\audio\\call_for_help.wav ”
Please keep in mind the double backslashes are required.
