view_coliision module

Hello Jeff and everyone else,
I have vizard 5.3, oculus DK2 with 0.8 runtime.
I imported view_collision module and built via vizconnect an avatar that is being controled by transport (hirarcic model of: tracker of DK2->walking transport with xbox one controller as direct input -> avatar represented by head and hand (non visible hand), display of DK2) so i can use this module.
I built a room in sketchup with circular arena inside it which i want the participants to stay in, but be able to see the area outside the circular arena.
I tried to use the view_collision module like you (Jeff) advised me to do but with only partial success. Sometimes if i keep pushing a button it can get through the wall of the circular arena and it is also a problem with the oculus because i can go up ("fly") and get out of the circular arena without a collision has been detected.
Do you have an idea why it is going out although the avatar high is lower than the circular arena if we keep pushing on a button?
Do you have an idea how can i overcome the fact that it can pass the walls when the participant is at a certain high?

Thank you!

Take a look at the viewpoint collision tech tip. It explains how to enable vertical collisions and change the collide list. Does this help with the issues you are having?

Hi Jeff and all,
Just want to update what was the actual poblem and how did i solve it:
I didn't defined collision for the avatar body so when defined viz.head,viz.body the collision module start to work excelent.
I created a room with object on walls which i want the praticipants to see but in the same time i wanted them to stay in a circular arena in the center of the room that was not high so in order for not blocking the objects view and use the view_collision module correctly i created the same arena but high one and imported it to the inspector after loading the original model, than add it to the original arena ans used alpha=0 in order for this high arena not to be seen for participants. That is why i could control of the movement area of the participants without interapt them seeing the whole view.
