This is the new HMS mount that v2 is shipping with. It should reduce the reduce the broken USB connectors if the plug gets accidentally grabbed  or pulled.  

Hey Jim, Thanks, PointCTRL is far from perfect, but it is an effective solution right now for our needs in DCS. I am sure someone much smarter than me will come out with something better soon.

PointCTRL v2 IPR (In Progress Report)     Miles

So I just bought this thing out of curiosity of what a $299.00USD VR headset would be like. All I can say is, Holy Crap I like it. Much Clearer and better build quality than the Rift S, and because of my wide IPD, much clearer and better overall feel than the Reverb G1 for me.

I’m still working on sorting out the best settings for the new system and the G2.

 

I can get 90fps over sparse areas on the map, but in places like Dubai or if there’s a lot of objects, I get 45-60fps.

Meaning that it cranks up past what it's set at? Not sure how I'd find out how to correct that.

Assuming a setting depending on your gpu. That setting may fit regular VR games, but not at all for dcs. Well beyond native resolution

Which Link cable do you use?

Do you use an usb-c or usb-A connector?

Thinking to get it....but unsure about the link thing.....

Hey Vincent,

 

Here is the Cable I bought,

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

The big improvement for me may be mostly because of the adjustable IPD, I just wish it went a little wider. It just works every time I put it on without any fussing about.

 

I have used it a few times, and it works flawlessly. The double tapping of the case anywhere to activate the pass through is really helpful. No more lifting the headset to find stuff. I can see, and use my keyboard with the pass though when entering server passwords or using the search function when binding controls. It always drove me nuts when I had to lift the headset and put on my glasses to see stuff, now I just tap the headset twice and I am good.

 

I only had to make a few adjustments to get a good pic, Nvidia Vsync to FAST, Max the Oculus resolution slider, DCS PD to 1.

 

For me, this is a good enough place holder until gen3, or something comes out that will accommodate my IPD of 72.

Actually, SteamVR does that on most VR headsets, for instance the 100% setting for my Pimax 5k+ is well over the native at a resolution 3412x2104 for wide FOV. But this SteamVR 100%>native resolution is extra noticeable in the G2 because they apparently set it extra high but is also supposed to go back to native in a future update.

 

I would bet though that what RogueSqdn is seeing in those areas is where DCS is switching from GPU bound to CPU bound. I get similar experiences with my 3090 and my i7-9700kf@5.0ghz, especially close to a Supercarrier or on a lots of aircraft and ground unit MP mission.

I think you're right, it's CPU bound in those areas with lots of objects: cities, FEBA, and crowded carrier decks. Hopefully that will improve with Vulkan. It's likely why I see a 5-10 fps increase when a Liberation mission is hosted on the old PC.

Are you saying the image quality is better? I have a Rift S and it is somewhat fuzzy

And sorry if this has been answered here before. With MSFS2020 supporting all VR headsets in the December 23rd update, can we use the controls in MSFS2020?

Hey All,
Pre Orders have moved to the PointCTRL website https://pointctrl.com/ and FireCats list is now on the PointCTRL discord, and will be updated there only https://discord.com/channels/608478274472902656/784841294865891339/784842469329862657. I should have a few pics of v2 later today.

Thanks,

A few questions for you, if I can:

 

1) I have a Rift s. My Idea was to upgrade to a Reverb g2 (after a PC upgrade, when the new Nvidia 30 or AMD 6000 GPUs will finally appear in stores), but I have an IPD of 74 mm. Do you think a Quest 2 is a better option? How is the display clarity over the Rift s? And over the original Reverb? I know oculus link works compressing data and then decompressing inside the HMD, does this behaviour affect visual clarity and frame rate? I like my Rift s and the Oculus VR software is amazing, so it would be a great news if I could get a performance and visual boost with a Quest 2 over my Rift s, thus keeping the Oculus environment.

 

2) I'd like to buy a pointctrl. If I compile the form on pointctrl site will I get the V2 version? Is this enough to do, or have I to do something else here? Thanks.

 

3) I have a 3d printer; do you provide stls for the sensor mount, in case I'll change my HMD later on? I'm from Italy and I think it would be quite tricky to add a second order for just a plastic spare part.

 

Thanks and keep the good work, your device appears to be amazing!

The Quest 2 is an upgrade from the Rift S Miles but supporting Facebook and their policies is a no-go from me.

I've gotten my G2 and new system dialed in fairly well for DCS now.  I decided to focus on quality and a smooth experience rather than trying to keep 90FPS.

 

Over the front in a Liberation campaign in Syria, I'm still getting 45+ FPS.  👍
