Frequently Asked Questions
It seems I have a problem with hand tracking. Is there a way to make it work better?
Don’t forget to play in an environment with a good light source. You may have more problems if you’re too much in the dark. Also, playing in a place with a contrasted background helps the cameras detect the movements of your hands better.
Should I be playing with my controllers or with hand tracking?
It all depends on you! They both offer a different gaming experience. Would you rather want to emulate the throwing of a ball with your real hands or do you prefer a more standard way to play?
We saw that most people feel playing with the controller is easier, but we also saw that playing with hand tracking offers much more satisfaction on the long term. You should also know that the game was first developed for hand tracking only, which means that bare hands is for us the ultimate way to play the game!
Will the game have more content?
Yes! Just Hoops is a game that we want to make evolve. The first major update, Crab's Quest - Summer Shots, was released on September 15 with 11 new levels, 3 specials, a challenge mode and more. The team is currently working on a major update that will add the Online mode as well as new levels, new skins and arcades will also come later.
When is online mode coming in?
We prefer not to give a release date at the moment, but our goal is to offer an online mode for the holidays at the end of the year.
What will the online mode be exactly?
It will be several things! For now, we want to focus on letting you play the levels you want with your friends or with strangers. Later on, we plan on making exclusive multiplayer levels, and possibly let you make your own personalized levels that you can share and play with other players.
On which platforms is the game available?
The game is available on Oculus Store App Lab and Steam VR. We are planning to release the game on the official Oculus Store, and PS VR. We want to make sure that those other versions have the same quality standards, which takes some time!
