Earlier refinements ...
Positional audio works with video & audio emitters. Not currently implemented for webpages, which play globally for now.
In the event of any difficulties, zap your Infinity cache, which can be found here :
<><> Infinity Raytracer : Enable using command line switch: -rt
When raytracer is enabled, it can be toggled on & off using the F3 key
Render quality can be adjusted using the command line switch -smooth=n
Where n is 1 to 4
This can be used in combination with the rt switch, however multi-sampling requires significant GPU resources
so only smooth a raytraced scene if you have a very fast GPU or Infinty will run too slowly to be useful.
To ensure 3dsmax Plugin.UserSettings.ini is correctly configured, you may need to install as Administrator.
Content captures delivered to [ProgramData]/Infinity/media
C++ web assembly example code is now available.

Infinity can now be run in multi-user mode. Up to 10 users per group for now.
You are auto-allocated into a group or specify -group=NameOfYourGroup on command line to start/join one of your own.
-name="MyName" on command line to override system username with whatever you want to be identified as.
You can talk to other users by toggling the address bar into talk mode by clicking on the icon to the right of the bar.
Each user is randomly assigned a placeholder avatar for now.
Single user version still available in case multi-user has problems or you don't want to use it.
Oculus Rift support - to activate, plug it in - will autodetect.
Use -desktop command line switch to bypass and use desktop instead when rift is connected.
Added level of detail support. Tutorial to follow.
New avatar (toggle third person mode using F2 key)
Move using mouse, cursor keys or gamepad (xbox 360 compatible). Shift runs.
