Thanks for jumping in FireCat,

Hi Wakkaman,
Just to reinforce what FireCat linked. While PointCTRL does function with those "other" programs, their native mouse implementation does not provide the same level of a interaction and user experiences as DCS.

Once all of the DCS/PointCTRL goals are complete, I will be focusing on the other sims.

Thanks,

Miles

No additional functionality. It's just that with the regular mouse the time out takes so long and the blue cross is distracting especially in critical moments that I often just switch it off instead of waiting it out. Now this relates just to the regular mouse --- not sure how things will work with PointCTRL as I am not yet one of the lucky ones to have received mine! I guess if returning my hands to their resting positions on the HOTAS will take the FCU's out of view than it will work perfectly. I suspect though that I may still need to LALT-C or double click the mouse middle button to effect this. Or just get used to waiting out the time out!
Hey Bearfoot,

I may not have explained it well by using "time out" to refer to both the mouse cursor, as well as the FCU time out.

You should have no need to LALT-C with PointCTRL. As soon as the FCUs are out of view, the cursor is moved to a default location that is outside your field of view in VR, and it will not show up again even when you move your head. That location, where you cant see, is where the cursor times out in the sim and disappears.

If the FCU LEDs are on, and you look at your hand on throttle, you will see the cursor on the throttle, where it should be. When the FCU LED turns off after it performs it's user preset time-out (between 10 seconds and oo), you will no longer see it at all until you reactivate it by pressing any one of the three buttons.

I know that was a long explanation, but it was a good question.
Without PointCTRL, something as minor as the cursor moving with your head for 10 seconds was a real immersion breaker, and supper annoying tor me.

Thanks for the great question,

Miles

Thanks, Miles! Appreciate the thought and consideration that has gone into the design, as well as you taking the time to answer questions. Looking forward to receiving my PointCTRL!

What is the approximate wait time if I order a PointCNTRL now? Could I have it before Christmas to give as a gift?
Thanks.

As soon as the beta GUI is out next week, I think PointCTRL will be at a level where I can focus mostly on production for now. So to keep me on track, my stated goal is to be through FireCats list by 20 DEC.

We should be able to produce the 25 kits a week to meet that goal. I will post progress chart when I post the now serving numbers.

Thanks for the motivation Doon,

Miles

I’ve been out of things for this year . But I’m trying to get back at it soon but in my pit and a more relaxed layou either ay I have this vr pointer.

I’m haven’t installed it yet but plan on doing it this week end What I’m looking for is the dummies guide to the vr pointer so I can get it working without troubles. I would like links to the written and video guides if possible. I have both rift cv1 and rift s systems I’m hoping the connector between my laptop and the rifts comes tomorrow but Monday at the latest.

Thanks for you help in advance
