This new BAM update (1.5-373) is by far the most important update for VR users! It fixes all the synch issues for 3D and VR! Now all VR methods (Link, Air Link, Steam Link, Virtual Desktop) work properly with FP in VR. BAM menu keys (~ or Q) and VR Home key (F12) will now force the FP window to be focused! (very handy for VR). This BAM update is also required for all tables using the new FizX 3.3 physics! Everyone needs this update!


BAM 1.5-373 update:

- New build tools used, result is bigger BAM.dll
- Fixed stereo3D/VR left/right eye object position synchronization
- xBAM.SetSharedHitCallbacks can set separate _hit/_prehit functions for given material
- Better COM objects lifetime management
- added Bam Tracker and unused plugins for VPX and TPA users
