Hey Fox,
Thanks for the pic ,its very helpfull. But I am a little confused by it. Is that a whole screen shot? If so, I certainly can see a problem.
Miles

in fullscreen: if i reset and then try to recalibrate i never see the cursor in my rift/screen
so i have to recalibrate in windowed mode where the "menu height centering isn t working

hoping this picture helps

btw when trying edge calibration i never get my cursor into the upper half for calibration there
for me it looks like a mix up of the old calibration with the new split one. the lower half is calibratable but then cursor ends much lower than initially calibrated. looks like there is only the lower half available at all.
hmmm

PointCTRL uses your monitors x,y coordinates as a base for absolute coordinates, so I can certainly see how you would have the exact issues you are having. I am glad you bought this up in the forum as it may help others as we address it. Los uses PointCTRL with a 4K monitor with no issues because his image is stretched to fill the whole screen.

The same issues you are having would be experienced by those who use an expanded desktop. Ironically, the earlier firmware version would have allowed you to define your own box in the lower left hand corner of your monitor. I took out the vertical sizing of the cursor limits to simplify calibration because it seemed unnecessary. I can see I was wrong.

There are two solutions for this issue. You run your DCS window in full screen mode for now, or wait a few hours as I update the firmware and add the vertical sizing option back. It will work just like the left/right sizing but in the vertical. The default will be for the standard DCS window filling the screens vertical limits, but you will be able to size it down for your application. This is something I had to do anyway for another customer with a specific purpose.

I hope this helps,

Thanks,

Miles

Just read your latest post, Your Print Screen corresponds directly to the cursor behavior you are describing.
......Still thinking.....Buffering........

ok miles, yes before the fw update it wasn t an issue. i already tried to calibrate in fullscreen, but without seeing the cursors its kinda difficult. i already thought that the "desktop extended," could be a cause but switching to DUPLICATE didn t cure it either
