Virtual Reality Walk-Thru
Before launching your first tour with us, please "fasten your seatbelts," and make sure your computer is ready to handle the ride! Here are a few pointers:
- Be sure you have the latest version of Internet Explorer 6.0. Although the tour can be designed for other browsers, we currently are optimized for Internet Explorer.
It's absolutely essential to download and install a free Virtual Reality "plug-in" that can display 3D websites. We highly recommend Octaga(tm), a free viewer that's very fast, free of "spyware," and easy to use. Click on the link below and follow the instructions in order to install the plug-in. Once it's installed, there's no need to re-install it for other tours.
- Finally, make certain your PC is up to the task. Unlike other low-resolution models, this tour shows an entire house in high-resolution. That means you'll need a medium-quick broadband connection and a late-model PC with 3D graphics support. We recommend a Pentium 4 with at least 512 MB of RAM and 16-bit graphics support (a PC purchased in 2002 or later should be fine). If you don't have an adequate PC or connection, just send us an e-mail and we'll be happy to mail you a demo CD or DVD!
- Once you're ready, click on the link below to launch the tour. Be patient--the model is large (10 megabytes or so), so it may take 30 - 40 seconds to load the model. But once it's loaded, your tour should run smoothly, without the need for further interruptions or downloads.
- Enjoy the ride!
