  1. woah, 1k for the G2. The HP site sells it here for $599. Do they really inflate the price like that in other areas?
  2. I just did this and noticed a big improvement. It also seems that the switch from 2D to VR is faster. It would always lag a bit when started VR with Steam. I also didn't notice that tearing in the graphics when I looked around. Granted I was only in the test flight for about 5 minutes, enough to take off and make a hard left turn to head back the opposite direction. Image was rock solid!
  3. @Lange_666 Thanks for sharing that. Unfortunately I'm not the only one that uses the headset (we have older children) so I can't pop in lenses just for me. @Flying Fisherman I need glasses for everything, I've tried wearing it without them and its a blurry mess. Th Rift S looks pretty good, its only a step down to be honest. Its that rippling in the graphics when I turn my head (mainly around the guage/glass area) that's annoying. Didn't notice that in the test flight I performed with the Quest. Granted I'm waiting on a cable, I was using it wireless and it was a bit laggy due to that.
  4. I am a Rift S owner and purchased a Quest 2 today. I have to say that it looks super clear and the screen door effect is almost totally gone. However, I wear glasses and found it rather uncomfortable even with the spacer and elite strap. It was uncomfortable against my face and I couldn't get it to set 'right', the rift doesn't do that. So my wife is now the proud owner of the Quest and I've taken the Rift back. The only thing I wish I could fix with the Rift is the screen tear I get occasionally when looking about the cockpit and an occasional popping noise in the audio. I can't really read the garmin but I can make out larger text and numbers, if only I could make that a bit crisper. I've only got a Nvidia 1080 and I doubt the new cards will be available anytime soon from what I've been reading so I'm a bit stuck in that regard. Not sure if the graphics card will making the sim look better in VR but It can't hurt.
  5. Looks like a really nice plane! Wonder if it will support use in VR.
  6. It would be nice if the added something like a tablet when in VR that can show a second screen or something so you can interact with a 3rd party program like littlenavmap.
  7. I'm glad to see success stories with the Rift S. I have been thinking of upgrading but now I'm just going to get a second headset (my wife plays VR too, soooo). I'm either going to get another Rift S or go for the Quest 2....not sure which at the moment. I love the Rift S and how easy it is to use. I'm just not sure the Quest will be as good and I've heard it can be fiddly with setup. I will say my flight was very immersive but look horrible. I didn't realize that VR had its on graphic options at the time so that could have been it. The other thing might be my computer, its a i7 7700k with 32gb ram and a Nvidia 1080. My new processor and mother board will be here in a few days, its a i9 10850k so I may see some improvement with that.
  8. I've been wondering this myself. The one time I got VR to work I used the map on the garmin but the waypoint lines didn't line up near the course change so it make flying it a bit weird. Interested in seeing what others are doing for navigation when in VR.
  9. I'm getting my Oculus ready to go. I've been waiting for this since the Sim was announced. I am going to be saving up for a new headset though, possibly the Reverb 2. At least the Rift 2 will give me an idea of what to expect.
  10. IKEA pilots....now that made me blow coffee from my nose! Touche I say. Glad to hear it went off without a hitch.
  11. Well AMD is going to announce there 6000 card (big Navi) at the end of the month. I would like to see how it fairs in comparison. 🙂
  12. Might have to try this. I've never messed with sensitivity on a joystick before until MSFS2020.
  13. I was about to suggest this. Works like a charm and should help.
  14. I've been wanting to use this and saw registration was closed. Will have to check it out.
  15. I think there is one for each but I'm at work and can't look it up at the moment.
