  1. Thank you...I see you have a desktop computer so you use DisplayPort I have a laptop so I use miniDisplayPort...but thanks for the info and good to know. -realkewl
  2. I am a little confused. I thought P3D VR only worked with Oculus or HTC Vive, so it also works with Windows mixed reality headset too? If so how does one setup it up? Is there software for Windows Mixed Reality? And I thought P3D you had to choose only between Oculus or Vive, does another option appear once you install the drivers for your Mixed Reality headset? Avidean: which miniDisplay port cable did you end up purchasing? Also, can Windows Mixed Reality headsets play Oculus rifts games? Thanks, realkewl
  3. Yes that is what I am talking about, but was wondering has anybody tried it with P3D V3 or V4 or with Steam. I know in P3D it asked you to select ever Oculus or HTC so was wondering how this would work. Also, from that video it does not really show if the game is in VR or just on a big screen. I didn't see him turning 360 degrees. Now that I think about this it is missing the tracking device of the Oculus rift, so how would it know if I'm turning around unless it has a ...cannot recall the word but it has the same response like what is in your cellphone. Thanks,
  4. I have not . I only have one computer that can run Ocukus rift. Yes, I thought that maybe one of the miniDisplayPorts was going bad, I bought a new miniDisplay to HDMI cable, bought a new Oculus Rift, Reformatted and reinstalled Windows 10, reinstalled Oculus software and the same thing happened, would not work. If one of my miniDisplayPorts ar going bad then that would require a new motherboard I am told, and if that is the case I might as well buy a brand new gaming laptop. However, I really I am not in the mood to spend another $2k just for Oculus rift to work.
  5. Has anybody tried this setup yet? My Oculus Rift just will not work anymore on my laptop, which is did for two years but know it will not work. The latest software update from Oculus seem to have broken it, and I've spent weeks with Oculus support trying to fix it. The simplest thing was to downgrade the software to prove it was the update, but Oculus does not support that. My laptop has HDMI and USB 3.0, but when using all the USB 3.0 I could not use HDMI, so I had to use miniDisplayPort to HDMI and it worked great for two years. Anyway, not sure if I want to purchase another wired VR headset. I have been hearing that Oculus Go along with Virtual Desktop will allow you to play Oculus rift games, just wondring if any body has tried it yet? Thanks, realkewl
  6. Well, I had to give up totally for the moment on Oculus. The rift will not work on my laptop anymore. After two years without issues, then Oculus did an update, Windows did an update, Nvidia did an update. Now my rift will not work at all. Oculus support is really bad. They only support via email and not even able to do zoom meetings. So I went through all this stuff taking pictures of this...taking pictures of that. Even bought a brand new Oculus rift, re-installed Windows 10, and same problem it will not display anymore, but Oculus does not want to confess, I even asked if I could down grade and they say no. So Facebook is going to totally kill VR in my opinion, because they feel the need to control everthing. Peace, -realkewl
  7. I have the rift and did a flight with a vanilla P3D v4.3. Using the mouse was ok, still cannot get any ATC window to show in VR. Also, was wondering if anybody is using the Oculus touches in P3D v4.3 and if so how is the experience? Also, do you need to connect both left and right or can I just connect the right controler? Left hand on the joystick and right hand using Oculus touch. Thanks in advance realkewl
  8. Thanks...I tired and turned on Dash 2.0, but I can only get to the health and safety screen. it will not go pass this screen (says click and button), and I am thinking that Dash can only be used with Oculus touch. Can you confirm this? Even in the video link the guy had Oculus touch. I do not have Oculus touch so it does not work for me as of yet. But if anybody else know how to interact with ATC while in VR please chime in. So far I like what I am seeing in P3D v4.3 and would like to not go back to FI. Like you said before I like the fact that I can turn VR on or off and flight planning is a lot easier for me. -realkewl
  9. Can you explain Dash a little more. I found it inside Oculus settings and you have to enable it as a beta software. I have not tried yet, I found some documentation on Oculus, but it seems as it is targeting developers not end users. So, I would truly appreciate how you go about getting the ATC window, GPS window and kneeboard to show in VR mode for P3D v4. I am planning on upgrading and not using Flyinside. I am getting tired of the pop windows popping up in different places all the time, and unable to interact with them in critical phases of flight. and when you are flying IFR on approach it becomes very frustrating. Does the sim pause, etc... Thanks so much, realkewl
  10. Is it a separate license...how does that work if one has both P3Dv3 and v4? Thanks!

    Flyinside and OpusFSI

    Is there anything I need to do special in order for Flyinside to work with OpusFSI? I just started with Flyinside this week, and I started OpusFSI just like I would using P3D i.e. started it first. But it seems Flyinside has it's own settings and configurations. So, I'm not sure what to do. Thanks, realkewl

    HTC Vive + P3D + Flyinside = Mind Blown!

    Ok, I have a lot to learn...thanks for all the info and help. -realkewl

    HTC Vive + P3D + Flyinside = Mind Blown!

    I just made my very first landing using Oculus Rift and Flyinside. Wow! First, the not so good: - I put my contacts in to see if it would help with getting the headset on. It did, but then I noticed I had to wear the headset far down my nose in order for things to be focused. - Flyinside you get 15 trial. So, first getting the headset center and getting you seat adjusted just right, took several 15 minutes trials. - I flew the lancair legacy, with flight1 GTN 750 at night from Latin VFR RDU. The mouse movement inside the plane takes some getting use to, because when you have the mouse active, your head movements move the mouse (took me a minute to figure that out) - The pop up for the GTN 750 is not really that good. It pops up and then it's really close, and curved. So, I just left it for now, maybe you can help me. But once you're close enough and you lend forward you can make out some of the items. Now, the good: - taxiing was great, i can look for traffic left and right...man that felt good. - taking off you can really feel the speed. - I was finally able to fly a traffic pattern, I was a little high, because i little hard to read the gauges, but felt really really good. You can tell when you are a beam the numbers. (again, this was at night) - The landing was great, felt just like a real landing, meaning if you look at the ground it get that funny feeling, speed sensation. However, since this was my first time really landing the lancair in 3D, I need to now adjust for the height perspective. I cannot recall the term, but it was the samething when I was transitions to the Cirrus SR20, I tended to land flat, because the plane seat higher then I was use to. Man, that felt good. Questions: - Do you have to adjust your seat before ever flight? I guess I should read the manuals now :-) Thanks, -realkewl
