  1. I think v43 is still PTC. Sensible thing to do is opt out of Beta test and read the forum reaction before opting in.
  2. I get around 4 hours from the Quest using the battery strap. I get good range from my TP-Link AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 router. It's in the same 1st floor room as my flight and racing rigs, but I can happily play Skyrim downstairs in the lounge or even in the garden after the sun sets
  3. I agree with Hoirtel's comments above. Oculus/Meta have worked some magic on the Airlink software over the past few months. I'm getting very smooth gameplay with the Oculus PC app set to maximum resolution at 72Hz. The only setting you need in the Debug tool is make sure sharpening is set on. Any other tweaks are just fluff Intel Core i7 6700K @ 4.5GHz. Asus-Z170-PRO MB - CORSAIR H105 HYDRO CPU COOLER Nvidia RTX 3080 ti - 16GB DDR4 2666MHZ HYPERX SAVAGE.
  4. Yep, this seems to be 'a thing'. I get the same experience when using Airlink. Maybe placing something against the Headset's proximity sensor to keep it from going into standby would work?
  5. It's great for games that are optimised for it, like Beat Saber, but good luck using it for DCS
  6. You go to the Oculus PC app. Select devices. Assuming your Quest is connected to the PC there will be a ticked green circle. Click the arrow and scroll the resulting window down to 'graphics preferences'. Here you can set refresh rate and rendered resolution. To get 1:1 pixel (maximum quality) rendering on the Quest you need to move the slider far right. This will render the image at native resolution in the centre of the display panel.
  7. Fair comment Don Well, wireless is more of a convenience and practicality thing for me. My 1:1 replica Spitfire cockpit is right close to my PC so wired VR was how I started. But I have an eclectic taste in VR gaming and I have also gotten into Motor Racing. My Racing Rig is way on the other side of my gaming room so wired, though not impossible, is just damned inconvenient. Once Airlink matured to the state where there is no perceivable difference in visual quality from Link cable it was the obvious choice for me. There are the other joys of wireless of course, like playing Beat Sabre or Skyrim outside in the garden on barmy summer evenings
  8. Yep, suits me though, my playing sessions are usually no more than 3 to 4 hours.
  9. This StarTech powered USB card worked for me. It kept the Quest charged to around 80% indefinitely. I'm exclusively using Airlink now though with the Quest Battery strap. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B087G7T234/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Quest 2 DCS VR

    No. The video stream is just mirrored on your monitor, no extra work for your GPU.
  11. Most VR headsets focus at about 2 metres. So if you need glasses to clearly see objects at that or a further distance, then you need prescription lenses for VR.
  12. It's best to use one of the resolution settings in the Oculus PC app. They are effectively super sampling pre sets. The highest setting maps the Quest's native resolution 1:1 at the centre of the display.
  13. You just need a decent USB expansion card with a dedicated SATA power connection. Quest will stay at around 80% charge indefinitely.
  14. The re centre binding in the UI works beautifully with the new Air Link feature on the Quest 2. I feel I'm getting a tad better performance and visuals over VD too
  15. Just tried the AirLink. Not much testing yet but initial impression is that it's at least as good as Link and Virtual desktop. Didn't have the HOTAS, mouse etc input problems that you described tho'.
  16. Quest 2 hands down. Twice the resolution of the Rift S, but needs a pretty good PC to run it at it's native resolution. I play DCS on my Quest 2 wirelessly using virtual desktop and a dedicated 5GHz router and the visuals are stunning. The Quest has lots of exciting development goodies in the pipeline too like 120hz framerate and custom portals that will allow you too see and access keyboards/controls while in VR.

    Quest 2 DCS VR

    You need a cable with a right angle plug (like the official Oculus one).
  18. That's strange. I had exactly the opposite experience with WIDMOvr. Quality lenses that snap on securely. Beautifully finished and nicely packaged.
  19. Lol, 70 degrees FOV Looks scary tho'
  20. Yes, particularly if you have a well powered USB port. I use a StarTech USB expansion card and the Quest stays charged indefinitely
  21. Go to controller settings menu. Far left column, scroll to the bottom, ui assignments, assign a button to 'centre VR view'.
  22. So what resolution are you setting in the Oculus PC app?
  23. That worked, thank you! Running DCS executable (not updater) from 'launch game' of streamer app task bar icon did the trick
