  1. The Pimax 8K-X have 4K screens per eye and 170 degree horizontal FOV (will release in december 2019). My 2080Ti/9900K combo can run this. In one year (when MSFS2020 is released) I can upgrade my 2080Ti .... so running dual 4K screens in VR is doable. And what about the VR hardware in 2 years - and still no VR support in MSFS2020? I will ignore the "Nice attempt though at being provocative" insult.
  2. There is hope for everybody, including those with not the latest GPU/CPU hardware. MS just need to make sure Asobo implement VR support in this flagship flight simulator before launch. It will be embarrassing to release this super advanced high tech software with no VR support in 2020 - remember the release is (at least) 1 year from now. The CP/GPU and VR harware will improve until then. But, the VR hardware is today 'good enough' as a bare minimum in my opinion (Valve Index, HP Reverb, Pimax 5K+/8K+/8K-X, HTC Vive Pro, Odyssey +)
  3. You may be right about that it is not straightforward for Asobo to implement VR in MSFS2020. Asobo better start VR implementation now so that it is ready at launch. Perhaps Microsoft needs to motivate the development team? Developing a brand new modern flight simulator with no VR support? Really?
  4. Yes I have a nice system. This (simming) is my hobby, and I am old (I have money). I use a 2080Ti and 9900K. But a 1080Ti and a much lower CPU than 9900K will run FSX/P3D fine in VR. You just need to lower some (key) settings.
  5. I can run FSX/Prepar3D/XP11 fine in VR (Pimax 5K+) - and those sims have very bad performance. MSFS2020 will not perform worst than P3D/FSX - so VR performance in MSFS2020 will be "good enough" - most important is to actually support VR at launch.
  6. Really? This is huge! First they (Asobo) say "no VR at release, maybe later, maybe never". But, VR should be supported at launch - or delay the release until VR is implemented and ready.
  7. In a recent podcast with AV sim, Microsoft says this about VR: VR: Cannot say at the moment whether it will be there on first release but trying to prioritise it Well, this is better that "No VR at launch - and MAYBE it will come...some day, maybe" - but it is still not good enough - sorry MS. Microsoft need to say: "Yes, we listen to the community, Yes, native VR support will be in the simulator at launch"
  8. - VR: They cannot say at the moment whether it will be there on first release but they’re trying to prioritise it Really? So they actually listen? The simulator is not ready for release before native VR support is implemented.
  9. And what about VR support? Do they (Microsoft) have anyhing to say about VR and the lack of it?
  10. Yeah, it is madness - no VR support. The sim is now dead to me.
  11. This is insane! All this amazing new tech and no VR? I am extremely disappointed (even mad and word not allowed). All my excitement for MSFS2020 is now gone. I cannot go back to flat 2D monitor. The sim is now dead to me.
  12. Here is the video for you HiFlyer People (thrillseeker) do so many stupid things for click bait, and to get some attention to them self. ...
  13. The F-16 is very popular all over the world. More than 4600 units sold...
  14. "In the trailer we have seen super nice pictures. I'm thankfull. But, if there are no deep simulation aircrafts (like pmdg, aerosoft, ...) at the beginning, it will be useless for many." Useless is to strong word. I would love to have deep aircrafts at launch...but I completely understand that this is probably not going to happen. I will still buy it with a smile. I can happily wait until the F-16C aircraft are released as addon for MSFS2020 by Milviz.
  15. I find this "More on our FSX plans coming soon…" not as good news. Just let FSX die in peace and focus on MSFS2020 please.
  16. I hope you are right. But I can`t shake the feeling of "FSX compatible addons"...or that FSX and MSFS2020 will somehow be linked together.... well, we just have to wait and see. "More on our FSX plans coming soon…" What? why?
  17. Microsoft: "The return of Microsoft Flight Simulator X is an important step in embracing our accountability and responsibility to those that have come before us. And to those that continue to value and invest in the Microsoft Flight Simulator X experience. That passion, investment, and appreciation must be recognized and reflected in our commitment to carry the Microsoft Flight Simulator franchise into the next generation. We are not building on, but building from, the product and history that is Microsoft Flight Simulator X." I am really confused by that MS statement....what does this mean for MSFS2020?
  18. The HP reverb seems very interesting for simming because of the insane resolution. But it IS a LCD. How do you rate the black levels and color depth? What about a moonless night flight with the reverb? Do you have any of the OLED HMD's to compare? Does the reverb give a greyish screen during nights?
  19. The Pimax XR OLED has the worst SDE of all HMD's - not recommended. Actually, I don't recommend Pimax at all. The ONLY nice thing about the Pimax is the FOV. Don't buy a Pimax. It seems we need to choose between crisp resolution or crisp colors/black level. The only three HMD's with pure blacks are the OLED HMD's. And in my world those are O+, Vive and Vive Pro (and for me, I think I would prefer the O+ for the A-SDE and price). The the new LCD HMD's (Valve Index, Rift S and HP Reverb) just don't have pure blacks/colors. And for me THAT is the most important. I love flying in the dusk/night. I suspect and hope Samsung will soon(TM) release a new version of the O+ with better comfort and higher resolution while still using AMOLED screens with their A-SDE tech 🙂
  20. Hi, I have a Pimax 5K+ .... and it kinda sucks. Great FOV - but that is it. The colors and blacklevels are horrendous! During evening/night flights I am sourrounded by this grey soup....and it is really annoying, and I will never "get used to it" or "adapt" So, the problem is that only the O+ and Vive Pro has OLED screens, the rest are LCD (like my Pimax 5K+). The new HP reverb has insane resolution...but is still a LCD. When I think about it I need a OLED display with Samsung O+ anti screendoor filter at reverb resolutions.....don't we all! What are you guys thinking? Would you go for higher resolution LCD or lower resolution OLED?
  21. I have a Pimax 5K+ but it sucks. Yeah, great FOV - but the rest is really really bad in my opinion (including build quality and support - stay away). The black levels in the Pimax 5K+ is very bad. How is the HP Reverb's black level during dark moonless night flights? In my Pimax 5K+ it is not black! There is always a very noticeable grey'ish filter over the whole image, and the colors looks blant and washed (I have adjusted PiTool brightness and contrast, and P3D v4.5 light setting). Dark nights is not possible in the Pimax 5K+ How is the HP Reverb's tracking? Small slow head movements in a flight sim (P3D, FSX or XP11)...
  22. Yes. I am 50...so not young. But VR has completely changed the whole flight sim genre for me...
