RIFT Eye Point

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine (whom shall remain nameless) is having a hard time using the "SRS Radio" mod. He is using a RIFT and after a lot of conversations with a bunch of the guys we figured out that he is sitting too far forward. He tells us that when he looks to the left to adjust radios he is looking at the throttle!

 

So has he some sort of install problem? or can it be adjusted by using the "eye position"

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks

Try moving the sensor height and position and angle to make it feel right. We're not leaping around in a room in VR well I'm not. :P

 

Go through the rift setup and experiment from there my sensor sits on top of an all be it cheapo PC speaker and just left of the main screen but that gets everything about right for me.

 

Sights in Gazelle and Huey feel and look right as well.

Control is an illusion which usually shatters at the least expected moment.

Gazelle Mini-gun version is endorphins with rotors. See above.

In DCS I would go to Options --> Controls --> UI layer (in the dropdown menu under your aircraft names) --> Reset VR center position (or something like this) --> bind this command to space bar or whatever he's comfortable with.

 

Now tell him to move his head forward and press space bar. Then he can move his head back to its normal position and voila. His view ingame will be aft of where it was before and will remain as his new default position.

 

Hope this helps.

 

EDIT: Basically what I said corresponds to Sec 6 from the post in the link given below

Adjust the eye point with the instructions in this thread. The A10C is the worst offender. It is way off by default but all aircraft can benefit from a little adjustment.

Keypad 5 works great in the rift, if the eyepoint is too far back, just lean back a bit and reset, and it will have nudged you forward a bit as you return to normal position and vice versa. Get yourself settled before you fly and you're fine.

Best way is just to get the first Rift setup done correctly, then it doesn't matter about physical sensor setup or the Rift setup as all is correctly set (if setup ran correctly).

 

Then just get seated with chair that has the back support, check that how it looks and feels in the cockpit and real live and get them matched. Once the chair itself is correctly set so when you lean to seat, it will be like so in the cockpit too.

 

The real challenge really is that many doesn't have a correct seats but use a gaming seats or office chairs that has wrong kind angles so it always requires some kind tweak between real seat and cockpit.

I don't even put the headset on until the plane is ready to startup. Most of time by the time I put on the headset I am facing the rear or sitting 3 feet outside the aircraft. No problem I just close my eyes and put my head in a natural position that is comfortable and hit keypad 5 and all is well. You will get used to finding keypad 5 with your headset on (blind) after a little practice.

I must be about the only one that uses the re-center VR view assigned to a joystick button. Very easy to do with the headset on.

I just find it much easier than fumbling for a keyboard key.

I don't use the keyboard for anything. Everything is mapped to my HOTAS (doubled where convenient with the Pinky Paddle being used as a modifier), and the rest is covered with VoiceAttack + VAICOM 2.0 for voice commands.

 

Super simple in VR...

Yes I picked up Voice Attack earlier this week as well, have not got it set up for DCS yet but looking like a great program for this.

I have everything mapped to my warthog also, including the "as escape" in the UI layer. That way, I just push my button and go to my escape screen to tweet control settings and such.

When all else fails, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!
