    Hi guys!

    I'm Marius from Norway, I work with Warpalizer (Warp and blend software).

    This is my personal 3 projector curved screen setup. I made this screen myself, to see how cheap I could pull off a good screen for gaming.

    This was the drawing of the room, the screen and projectors:

    I decided to use my office for this, the room is 3x3m. The MDF sheets I used for the screen is 4mm.
    The screen cost itself is about 200 usd (!).
    Projectors is ASUS B1M, they cost about 600 usd. I use a Dell Precision M6700 notebook and a old Logitech Driving Force Pro with home made adapter for OMP steering wheel and extender for shifter. :)

    I hope to get some help setting up FOV for some racing games here, as I love racing games myself and play alot on my spare time.
    Which games do you want to see on this screen?

    Best Regards,
    Marius

    Here is a video for you guys, please set quality to 720p. The video was recorded in "first person" with a old ContourHD camera:


    Some more pictures of games, man it's really hard taking photos of this! The room is also way to small (another lens on the camera would do)

    Shift 2 Unleashed:
    I have to say I love both these cameras. The helmet cam feels so real, and the bumper cam is so immersive!

    Here :) Exuse the "fisheye" effect, I had to record it with a Contour HD camera, and sit a little bit further back than whats optimal.

    Hi Guys, I hope your summer have been good. I've aquired a GoPro Hero3 Black camera now, to record videos of games with. What games would you like to see on this screen? :)

    Thanks jefbougy. The mdf sheets are in fact just fixed to the wall. There was a little area that is flat in the middle, that I made to fit the curving with bondo :)
