  1. You just need a decent USB expansion card with a dedicated SATA power connection. Quest will stay at around 80% charge indefinitely.
  2. 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
  3. 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'.
  4. 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).
  6. That's strange. I had exactly the opposite experience with WIDMOvr. Quality lenses that snap on securely. Beautifully finished and nicely packaged.
  7. Lol, 70 degrees FOV Looks scary tho'
  8. Yes, particularly if you have a well powered USB port. I use a StarTech USB expansion card and the Quest stays charged indefinitely
  9. Go to controller settings menu. Far left column, scroll to the bottom, ui assignments, assign a button to 'centre VR view'.
  10. So what resolution are you setting in the Oculus PC app?
  11. That worked, thank you! Running DCS executable (not updater) from 'launch game' of streamer app task bar icon did the trick
  12. Cheers, I'll give it a try later. Just waiting for the latest DCS update to finish.
  13. With the streamer app running on your desktop and while you are viewing the desktop in your Quest, press the menu button on your left hand controller. A new window will open and there is an option to view available games. There is also an option to start Steam VR. This is what I tried and DCS appeared as an available game, but it wants to install the Steam version.
  14. Do you need the Steam version of DCS for this to work? I ask, 'cos when I try to launch from the streamer it wants to install the steam version. I have the non-Steam version of DCS.
  15. Sweet Best 'through the lens' video of any VR headset I have seen. The Quest 2 is Awesome!

    Quest 2 DCS VR

    The DCS in game resolution setting has nothing to do with VR. Just leave it at your monitor's native resolution.

    Quest 2 DCS VR

    I'm currently trying 4128x2096 at 72Hz. I mostly fly WW2 prop planes and this is fine for dogfights with a handful of planes. With V23 it's important not too add any super sampling with OTT or debug tool. I just turn off ASW and get a detailed smooth experience with these settings. Intel Core i7 6700K @ 4.5GHz.

  18. Yep, much improved since the Link came out of Beta. You need the v23 updates for the headset and PC app
  19. Ah, pleased you sorted the MSSA setting Picture quality is impressive with Quest 2 via link. It's an encouraging improvement over my Rift S. As I mentioned previously, the 100% increase in physical pixels compared to the Rift S gives a much smoother detailed image. The downside is that this comes with a processing overhead. My 1080ti GPU is showing it's age and I will upgrade to something like an RTX 3080 as soon as I can snag one. The RTX cards have the advantage of much improved encoding hardware that the Link cable demands. Having said that, I'm enjoying WW2 dogfights with a handful of planes and getting smooth gameplay.

  20. Yes, the MSSA setting in DCS. By all means try the Nvidia control panel settings and see what you think. Beware of placebo effects..just saying
  21. Most settings in the Nvidia control panel have no effect in VR. The main exception is power management which should be set to prefer maximum performance. The one setting that helps reduce the flickering jaggies is MSSA. Unfortunately it has a big hit on performance. The other thing that helps is a VR headset with physically higher resolution panels. I've progressed through CV1, Rift S and now Quest 2. There is a marked reduction in flickering edges at it's native resolution. I would suggest trying some MSSA with other settings dialled down a tad if required.
  22. I've installed this one: StarTech.com PCIe USB 3.1 Card - 2x USB C 3.1 Gen 2 10Gbps - PCIe Gen 3 x4 - ASM3142 Chipset - USB Type C PCI Express Card (PEXUSB312C3) https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B087G7T234/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 With it's optional SATA power connected the Quest 2 stays at 80% charge indefinitely :)
