  1. We are all headed for a dirtnap one day so does anything matter? Facebook bought out Oculus for $3 billion in the before time (2014). It effects the usage by the concept of monetizing the Oculus Rift platform through integrated ads for facebook or whatever they choose to advertise, which in my opinion will only increase over time as all advertising does. They also collect information on rift usage. The terms and conditions include a line saying that the headset will collect “Information about your physical movements and dimensions when you use a virtual reality headset”, along with a range of
  2. Ultimate decision for me is what DCS decides to support, finger Tracking is what I'm waiting for. The Valve Index has my attention now, but I'm going to wait to replace the CV1 until more of the various units are out. I not a facebook fan, so I'll be happy to ditch it, not necessarily the Rift. The optical finger tracking on the Vive, Vive Pro and Cosmos looks cool too and the SDK was just released. One thing is for sure, I can't wait to flip virtual switches in the Viper when the time comes.
  3. @dogbite: Alt+enter? Excellent, thanks.:thumbup: I'll try holding off on the diluted alcohol, that's what's in the wipes the oculus team uses -unoffically anyway.

  4. Hello all. I had the DK2 and finally took the plunge on a CV1. I'm about to jump into setting this all up again after being away from DCS for sometime. I have three quick questions. One, is there any guide or quick set-up sticky somewhere? Two, how do I output the rift or "mirror" it to my monitor for others outside the rift to see what's going on? And finally three, I think I used 70% isopropyl alcohol diluted 4:1 on my DK2 but was going to try 12:1 on my CV1 (closer to lens wipe strength? I believe)=(2.5ml 70% isopropyl alcohol with 30ml of distilled water or 1/2 TEAspoon to 2 TABLEspoo
  5. I had mine two clicks out. I just remeasured my eye position for current device and pushed it all the way out too. (Like it says to) which I did to begin with...but, I may have been screwing my brain up, I realized that it has left and right lines to stare at, but it didn't specify to close the eye not being calibrated. I had both eyes open when I started, too excited to really read the instructions...it looks to me like you need to just look through one eye at a time...duh. They should have specified that for morons. I still have to try and fly with the new settings....maybe I won't have su
  6. I've been meaning to ask everyone this, what's everyone's eye relief setting on the dial set to, and does your dial setting change with too much force applied when putting the rift on/off?
  7. Try making sure the rift is setup right in the Nvidia control panel settings. I'd also change my primary monitor to a 75hz refresh rate at any resolution so the rates match. It made a huge difference for me. Inside DCS leave it at 1920x1080 for the rift. Also, are you pausing the service under tools advanced pause?(configuration utility)-before starting dcs...and uncheck dk1 support box in rift display mode...mine always checks itself back by itself and I go to a 3dof cockpit instead of 6dof...it's weird. If it happens just restart everything. also since it's two monitors remember to mouse r
  8. @DerekSpeare Try setting your primary monitor to 75 hz at any resolution in my case it was 1280x1024. Leave all DCS graphics settings low at 1920x1080 res. It seems in my case the rift was running at a 60 hz refresh rate(primary monitor setting) which made it pretty horrible to look at.
  9. Wow! Huge difference! I'm not sure if it was the update or me changing my primary to a lower res at the same 75 Hz refresh rate as the rift, but it's a major improvement. It's finally playable for me now. I flew around for a few minutes and didn't get sick. Very cool.
  10. Really? Makes sense, damn X52 Pro. I'm really looking forward to that now, thanks!
  11. @ Buznee: That's funny you mention that. That's how I've felt the past few days. Almost like reality is the video game (DCS is a sim- just an analogy) with the fake looking artificial head bob and artifical movements. I've been wacked out too, enough to buy Dramamine long after the fact. It's been almost two full days. The last thing I tried was the spacewalk demo which starts you off in a spin...I was like yeaaaah, gonna' pass on that for now.
  12. Just one? :music_whistling: I might be overusing that to deal with my regular reality already. LOL. -That's already a given, but thanks. :D
  13. @starsky396 The 3D rainbow looking effect at the bottom of your view? Buznee is right, go into the Oculus Configuration utility under advanced I think (I'm on a different PC) and pause service. -latest Beta SDK, also have Extended mode checked under the rift mode?. If you don't have 6 DOF close out everything and try again, that's what has worked for me. Get ready for a mind job,and maybe have a trash can nearby just in case. I think the older you get the more prone to motion sickness you become.
  14. Word of advise, don't intentionally try to make yourself sick in the Rift. Hey guys I figured it out. I fired everything up and it worked. Was like WTF? Closed out and got the 4 DOF thing again. What I have noticed is the DK1 legacy deal keeps checking itself somehow after I exit DCS (force ably close icon on desktop) not through the DCS exit. When this is off the tracking works after pause...but somehow comes back on again and since I never really looked at it again after pausing (I did notice yesterday it kept coming on) but didn't put 2 and 2 together. Works now I'll just have to go in
