Samsung Odyssey, first thoughts

Hi folks,

 

I finally got the chance to get the Odyssey, I'm posting here to give detailed feedback about wearign it with glasses, as it was very difficult for me to get info on that.

 

They fit much better than in the Oculus Rift, putting it on and removing it is a breeze too thanks to the "crown" design.

 

The Odyssey's space is 140 mm at the widest point without compressing the foam.

The width of my glasses' frame is 135 mm, height 35 mm. I think they are wider than average and yet they fit well.

The lenses didn't touch each other either (they were with the Oculus Rift), but I guess this might depend on each person's morphology.

 

Funny detail, in the manual they explicitely tell to not wear the HMD while wearing glasses, as doing so "may cause facial injuries". Covering all the bases I guess :D

 

Hope this is useful.

Cheers,

yes you need steam, it uses steamvr. Stand alone works fine but it needs to launch steamvr

OK not sure I fully understand this. If I launch Steam VR then I can use direct purchased aircraft from DCS or, do the airframes need to be purchased from Steam to work with Steam VR :unsure:

Steam VR has nothing to do with DCS Steam version.

It just enables both Versions of DCS (Steam AND Standalone) to talk to your HMD.

 

in a nutshell, just install Steam VR (no need to install anything else afaik) and then start your DCS Standalone as usual.

Yep exactly.

I'm DCS non-Steam user. What I did to make it run:

- Configured the Windows Mixed Reality environment as instructed when plugging the headset.

- From Steam, installed "Windows Mixed Reality for Steam" (had to search manually for it in the store)

- When I play, I first start "Windows Mixed Reality for Steam" (which also starts the WMR envirnment), I wait for the headset to hook up and then I start DCS, works like a charm.

I wear glasses. I tried VR with them on last night and was surprised by the difference. They fit well in the headset probably because they are rimless and extremely light weight (2.5 grams). They have a patented superwide progressive band and are also blue blocker.

With them on I found that the sweet spot grew to cover about half the FOV and God days were considerably less. Maybe is the blue blocker feature or that the overall lens configuration is more like the OSVR lens that is supposed to be a superior lens. Does anyone else notice this when wearing glasses?

 

 

 

Any chance you could provide more information on where you got your glasses to work with the Odyssey? I just ordered it, and need to get glasses that will fit as you have described. Thanks, Pete

What I did was use my lenses from VR Lens Lab (very cheap, made for the Rift, work great), and then bought a 25$ adapter which lets me use them in the Odyssey from Ebay.
