Q – Why are the Arcade machines so close or far away from my face when in VR?

Q – Will NewRetroArcade ever be open source?
A – NO & Yes, we have plans to release the source to a few classes and systems that we created, especially ones for getting internet streaming and emulation in UE4.

Q – How do I get off the arcade machine?
