  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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

    HTC Vive + P3D + Flyinside = Mind Blown!

    Thanks and you are way ahead of me...I just got my Rift, but I'm waiting on another piece, because I'm trying to run it on my laptop with a 980M graphics card. But since the boards HDMI slot is a by-pass it keeps flashing the screen, so did some search and another person got it to work by using the mini DisplayPort to HDMI. I hope it works!! Thanks, realkewl

    Ok, well that makes a lot of sense. I would need the mouse using VR. So did you ever get your shutters fixed? I was wondering if it had something to do with the native VR support from P3D, since they say it turns on once it detects your VR headset. Anyway to keep it from turning on? -realkewl

    I was wondering about the native P3d support for VR. If you are not seeing it as much why stay with flyinside? Is there a difference? I am waiting for my rift now. Should have it this week. I was going to go with the native p3d VR. Thanks, realkewl
  11. Yeah maybe that's the problem, because i figured out what is going on...my navdata gtn750 took me to seqm (i think that's the airport), but there was nothing there. Then I repositioned my plane to the airport in P3D. The airport in p3d is on a mountain top but flight1 GTN took me to an airport in a valley that was not there. When I zoomed out in gtn750 my airplane was setting in a field and the airport was several miles away. But I was at the airport in P3D. Wish I had a picture to show, but anyway somebody is off. Thanks, realkewl
  12. Ok I must be going crazy. Took a flight today from Colombia to Ecuador, Quito. Flying RealAir Legacy, with flight1 GTN 750 First thing, I noticed was that the ILS 36 would not activate. It would not come alive. No problem, just handle fly following the GPS. Second thing, could not find the airport...I mean it is no where to be found. GPS says I'm right over it. Paused sim, F11 to look around. No airport at all. Did several passes same thing. ILS would not pick up and no airport in the sim at all. Try to land in some dirt...landed and walked away, but hit a small tree...yeah some repairs are needed. Ok, here's the really weird thing. After the crashed i re-positioned my plane to Quito...and what do you know its a big international airport...yeah. Weather was clear... Has anybody else seen this? I'm new to P3D, but not to FSX. Thanks, realkewl
  13. Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. But I have open the spy and it says SIm: Air Folder = RealAir Legacy V2 which is the same as my camera views. I do not have a default view. One thing that spy keeps saying is that MET Aircraft Location unknown : is the sim paused. The sim is not paused. Thanks, realkewl
  14. So what was the solution? I'm seeing the same thing whenever I load a saved flight from P3D I get no Camera movement from OPUS. However, the first time I set it up it worked. Thanks, Ray
