cockpit positions in vr 4.1

Recommended Posts

Using oculus rift in cockpit. Positions different and some so high cant fly.  Don't know how to get correct. When using the rift my keyboard will not work . Every time I open any aircraft, get strange cockpit locations Do not have flyinside  how do we get a flyable position in cockpit. My yoke ,foot pedals,other Saitek gauges all good. Any help,Thanks in advance.

You can now shift your position using eyepoint move commands. There is a drop down menu that says reset oculus view or some thing like that. Open menu, put mouse courser on it, don the rift then click it and all is well. I think there is a key for that but don’t know what it is.

my mouse does not work  when using the rift in p3dv4 nor does my keyboard unless I remove the mass from my face. you mean you can do this while in virtual without removing the mask. Dennis

Well, there is a little gap at the bottom of the Rift nose area where you can peek down and see your keyboard..... 

And if you tilt your head back, you can even see your screen.....

I don't have p3d, but with FlyInside, I lose keyboard input in FSX and in X-plane if I use  the mouse on my screen anywhere outside the sim window. I then have to click the mouse inside the sim in order to restore keyboard input.

There are 2 VR specific controls already built in to P3Dv4 that are already mapped as keyboard shortcuts by default

 

(Shift + Ctrl + ,)   HMD Recalibrate Origin

(Shift + Ctrl + M)   HMD Stereo Toggle

 

You can map these to any joystick / controller  button you have available

The first one resets your eye point view of cockpit. I mapped these to a single button on my Logitech gaming pad so I do it just by feel and don't have to look. If you don't feel you are centered properly, move you head up or down, left or right or both then press shift+Ctrl+comma. This actually

keep your head looking forward though. If you have a free button on your yoke or joystick map it cause you'll use it a lot

your keyboard works but for some reason the normal eye point commands don't in P3D4 or 4.1

 

Now if your mouse and keyboard don't work at all that's another story.

my mouse works in VR to flip switches..etc

see if you can turn lights on and off with L with the headset on

hope this helps

Just to be clear

The eye point commands will work when flying from your monitor but not with the headset on. 

Not sure if eye point commands will work in VR with FlyInside, haven't tried it yet

I hear you, but my mouse works with the Oculus on inside the headset, so that is a problem. You might need an update on Oculus to 1.19, Video drivers update to most recent and the mouse itself, first try a different USB port for it as that's sometimes a problem with oculus, both your keyboard and mouse are USB so when the oculus sensor in the headset activate the USB ports for those devices are disabled. If you hold your finger on the sensor in the headset does the mouse become disabled on the screen? I would look at changing USB ports for them first, make sure your hmd is plugged into the video card and a USB on motherboard. Go simple first with troubleshooting and then the more complex things. I know I have problems with a USB expansion card on the front of my gaming PC that didnt work with oculus until I updated the drivers

Brian Can see the mouse + sign in the hmd but cant get any clicks on anything in cockpit. Have Maped the hdm commands to my  throttle control works great. Am connected to 3.0 usb and hdmi on my 980 ti video card. I run a overclock cpu at 4.2 so vision is a little blurry in hmd but not bad. You have been a great help, I truly cannot thank you enough .Stay in touch. My email is d7983000@comcast.net.

I did some flying tonight in P3D 4.1 native VR and have to admit it was a 100 times better than 4.0. First I tried the eye point keys and they are working again! It works silky smooth in stereo and mono and all outside views are back and work great. Also noticed the CPU and Graphics card temps went down by 15 deg 

very happy

In VR is the mouse a dot? With v4 it's a + sign. You should see a dot in 4.1 that gets brighter when you go over a switch or knob. I have found that if the mouse on your monitor is not focused on the sim, it won't work in VR. Close all menus on your monitor by holding down alt. I usually hit alt-enter to go full screen and then point in the middle of the screen and click. Then see what you got in VR.

Brian it is a + sign I did the 4.1 update but only client . Did you do the full 4.1 or just client.   Denny

I did the client and the content, and it did not mess up my add on scenery or aircraft.  Everything came up good and the VR works so much better. LM recommends that after the client update delete the prepar3d.cfg and the shaders folder and let it rebuild everything to default. Then see if you get the menu at the top, then you know you're good with the update. If not do the client update.
