  1. As i remain a vr ‘nerd’ and i do not have to money to buy a Varjo XR3 (well I do but It is just to expensive for home use) and I tested almost every other headset I settled with the valve index, It seems to be the headset with a decent FOV, great colors and sound and not that much blurrier then a G2 which isn’t always a stutter fest. Maybe in a couple of years we will have true mixed reality headset with great resolutions and FOV which run on ‘affordable’ systems.
  2. I already have such kind of device, and it doesn't seem te work, maybe i need to buy another one, but a new setup sounds tempting I am also thinking its could be my power supply (it is the oldest piece in my setup), i am gonna swap out motberboard and powersupply
  3. I am having constant tracking issues with my index, at first I tought it was the cable but then it stopped working all together and valve sent me a new one. After a lot of testing and back and forth mailing with valve tec support we came to the conclusion it’s my motherboard (specifically) USB chipset that is causing issues, apparently there isn’t enough bandwidth or the chip is bad. If I have no other usb device plugged in (just the valve index usb in a 3.1 usb slot), I have 0 to no tracking issues, if I plug in more usb devices (like joystick, throttle….) the issues get worse to unplayable, so I tend to believe valve tec support. Also it gets way worse if I use the controllers. My motherboard is a Asus Z390-A (1151 socket), any advice on a new motberoard would be appreciated, especially fellow flight simmers who use a lot of usb devices and have no issues with the index.
  4. Also have it since this weekend, super sharp image, almost everything is readable in cockpit now.
  5. Nice to see the discussion going, I think we can all agree on one thing: we want VR to succeed for DCS in particular and flightsimming in general. The thing is to get it mainstream. I saw an online survey somewhere that +- 15% of the player base has a VR headset, that’s not enough to get the dev’s attention. More people need to play in VR, but to do so it needs to be more affordable, VR headset (especially the quest 2) are affordable, software is affordable but the monster of a pc you need to assure people get the wow effect (and stay with VR) is not affordable for the mainstream gamer/simmer/fight enthusiast. We don’t want to be the 1% of the 1% playerbase, but to change that the software needs to be more performant, but why should a developer put effort and money in it if is a niche. Maybe an other paradox?
  6. I’ve been in VR since the rift CV1, the vive pro was its successor and then the reverb G1 together with the pimax 5k super (which i both still have now). I have a 9900k with a 3080 card and I struggle to get decent framerates with my Reverb G1, it goes super with the pimax but it feels like i had a drink too much because it’s blurry. I feel like I fell into the ‘FPS chase strap’ and I cant get out. If you fly high in the sky its al fun and games but if you do helo flying low level it’s a stutter fest. Of course these are well known problems and are for now not solvable, i know they talk about vr optimization in the future but the maps that are coming out are getting heavier and heavier, it seems like vr headsets and developers are doing a fabulous job, gorgeously looking maps and planes even a 1/1 world representation in FS2020 and my god those dcs clouds are gorgeous. On the other hand it seems impossible to buy decent hardware to run al that eye candy on. Now here’s the paradox, I can’t get back to pancake mode but I can’t get VR to work properly. Am I the only one?
  7. i found it, it's only possible at 90hz, thanks
  8. I just got mu 5k super in and i cannot select large fov, only smal and normal. in normal it is a bit larger but not to the level i say ‘wow’. I cannot see the wings in a f18 or f16. am i doing something wrong?
  9. If you don't want to wait: i have a second hand set on sale:
  10. Thanks for the tips guys, problem solved. Apparently i had a lot of other devices (that i do not use, like a button box) that automatically mapped rudder input. i deleted them all and the problem was solved.
  11. After flying the F18 and huey for the last years I am getting back to the harrier (campaigns always lure me back to a module). After freshening up my knowledge on sensors and systems I attempted several ship landings in VTO, the issue I have is when I use the pedals (rudder input) it very quickly gets into a horizontal spin were I cannot get out. If I remember correctly I did not have that issue in earlier development stage of the module. Am I doing something wrong? Or is rudder input a nogo for the harrier in VTO modes?
  12. VIRPIL VPC WarBRD base + WarBRD Grip + Constellation Delta Grip for sale. Bought in november 2018, in very good condition, including 2x 3d printed extensions and 2x 3d printed supports, warranty cards are also included. I have to many joysticks so one has to go . Shipping inside EU available, goods are in the Netherlands and can of course be picked up as well. Price: € 350 excluding shipping (depends on country). Contact me via PB or Whatsapp (+32478735324).
  13. The distance is roughly 2cm's. But i don't think it goes 16° in bank sideways, it doesn't feel like that. Maybe i got a setting wrong but it feels like it can handle more angle in pitch then in bank.
