FAQ

How do I create an AltspaceVR account?

For complete step-by-step instructions that cover everything including downloading AltspaceVR, creating a new AltspaceVR account, and finding & entering the event, go to altvr.com/welcome.
Creating a new account is simple. Open AltspaceVR and select the blue “Sign In” button on the right. You will see a “No Account? Create One!” link at the bottom. From here, you will be prompted to create your account. (Please keep in mind that your Username and Display Name are public-facing, so we recommend choosing something that you are comfortable with other people seeing. Don’t share private information in your username or display name.

Note: Upon entry new account creators will be prompted to run the tutorial or to “explore on my own.” Choosing the exploration option bypasses the tutorial and allows you to proceed directly into the event. The tutorial can also be skipped by opening your Main Menu, navigating to “Settings”, and toggling the “Skip Tutorial” setting ON.
