Hey Miles. I posted this a few pages back. But I didn’t see you reply. What’s the best option for the Rift-S currently?

Did you figure out a way to use the current HMS in a way that wouldn’t occlude the top camera or do you need to come up with a new HMS design for mounting directly on the front face of the goggles?

Hey Deano,
Right now, I just have the mount that blocks the upper camera. I am still trying to lock down weather or not the upper camera is used for the head-tracker. So far it appears its only used for tracking a touch controller above your head. I have not seen any difference in DCS tracking. I think its reasonable to assume its not needed because most of the the time it would just be looking at a white ceiling with no discernible features to reference. But that is just a hypotheses at this point.

There is a hole in the mount so the camera can see through it when the HMS PCB is snapped out.

Eventually I will make a different PCB for a face mount, its just not a priority right now.

Thanks Deano,
Miles

Maybe mentioned before and I'm definitely dreaming here... But how awesome would it be if ED added something like a virtual pilot hand/arm to DCS, that would follow mouse (Pointctrl) input. Not only would it be cool to see it when operating cockpit switches, but it would also help to see and operate side wall switches (talking F-18 here).

Not really sure how this would work using both arms with only one mouse, but with Pointctrl (using both hands) that issue should not be a problem.

Sorry for this little side step, but I was just so excited about the idea of having this feature . Back on-topic



Edit: Maybe the idea isn't as far away as I thought, because I just realized we already have virtual hands for the touch controllers. Still room for improvement though.

The issue with visible hands following the mouse cursor around, much less arms as well is that they block your ability to see the controls you're trying to interact with in the first place.
