If you have installed Virtus Player, Enter Webmuseum's Virtual Reality

NOW -

Note: when vrml (.wsb) files start dowloading, a window called "Viewing Location" appears with the time remaining for downloading. Place your cursor IN the window. Should the screen saver take over and create the blank screen, when you click the mouse to check progress you won't lose the window. If the cursor was outside the window, the window automatically closes with any click of the mouse. But if the window closes, don't worry, downloading conintues and you can open the window again by clicking on the window's icon in Netscape's lower screen selection bar.

CURRENT STATUS OF VRML EXPERIENCE OF THIS WEB SITE - the VRML 3-D files were constructed in mid-1996 with Virtus 3DWebsite Builder software. At this present time of launching the files unto the Internet it was discovered that the browser for this program "never made it past the beta-testing version". As of June 1997 the company's only VRML browser for their proprietary .wsb VRML files is Virtus Player. This new replacement browser does show the files with the original great color and textures appropriate for a virtual fine arts exhibition space. However, very disappointingly, links to HTML text support pages AND other .wsb 3-D rooms do not function with Virtus Player! Virtus technical support said they are "researching the request" to make the .wsb files' links function (do what they are suppose to do according to the product's manual guidelines). Virtus tech support suggested an alternative browser, such as Netscape 3.0 with its 3dLive VRML browser. However our experimentation demonstrated that the converted .wsb to standard VRML .wrl files take way too long to download into Navigator - on this PC's hard drive! Just as importantly, there was a huge loss in color and texture quality, resulting in inferior appearance of the exhibited artwork within the virtual galleries. So our team make the decision to go with .wsb visual quality, intact online with the freeware, Virtus Player, handily downloadable right from this page. Special pages were built in HTML to enable the browser to get around in the different virtual reality rooms and sound is attained for art viewing pleasure. Hopefully Virtus Corporation soon will offer upgraded software that has 1) links that go back and forth between VRML and HTML, 2) links to music files from within VRML so that the cool music buttons in the elevators work in the future, 3) .wsb files requiring .bmp graphic files can be converted to .jpegs and 4) popular browsers such as Netscape and Internet Explorer can dispaly the existing .wsb files as converted .wrl files with comparable visual quality. We know people hestitate to tie up their systems downloading specialized browsing software. But consider that with Virtus Player your virtual reality experience will be artistically greatly enhanced beyond what is currently available with Navigator 3.0. Plus navigating around the museum is much easier and intuitive and downloading files are 3 to 4 times FASTER as .wsb rather than .wrl files!! Art Lovers, For Art's Sake, Please Download!
