HP's Reverb VR Pro Headset

Those two things pretty much cover the major things that need to be adjusted. As for the 188% SS thing, just ignore that. I haven't found anything over 100% SS to have any noticeable benefit to clarity, but getting significantly over 100% starts to cause all kinds of performance issues like ghosting.

Look at F18 map MFCD with 100% and 150% SS ... are you sure you don't notice any difference?:huh:

 

However I am also in 100%

Yeah, that´s true. I have them installed a week ago and my picture is crystal clear and sharp now from the center to the edges with perfect sweet spot.

Using the Reverb with my glasses or contact lens wasn´t half as good as now!!!! Fascinating! I ordered them with the Zeiss Blueprotect coating. My IPD is 68 and now perfect sweet spot (33,5 + 34.5 IPD inserts).

 

So these lenses can help correct for non-optimal IPD?

I can just say it from my point of view. If I wear my glasses under the Reverb there is not much space to hit the sweet spot of my glasses, which correct my astigmatism and hit the sweet spot of the Reverb. I have to bring two sweet spots in conjunction. If I wear my soft contact lenses, I hit the sweet spot of the Reverb, but my astigmatism isn't corrected and sometimes it doesn't seem to be a sharp and clear picture, rather foggy and blurred to the edges. In both cases I often had crossed eyes to meet the sweet spot. snaping the Vr inserts ontop the Reverb lenses it's a entire new vr world for me and I don't have to squint for the sweet spot, it's just there and large and sharp and clear an so on. Totally recommended for astigmatism and myopia:thumbup:

Same here, got lenses from https://vroptiker.de/sehstaerke-linsen-einsaetze/hp-reverb/

Sweet spot is much better than wearing glasses! I also have a rather strong astigmatism.

But if I don't wear glasses, and my IPD isn't the native of reverb... Can I use a plan lenses without eyesight for correct IPD?

dumb question but I assume you got your information from your eye doctor on what to put in.

Yes, your corrective lens prescription. Without a prescription, one could test common "reader" glasses from any pharmacy to determine the correction needed and provide that to VR Optician. They do not require an optician's written prescription.

Eyes are very individual stuff.....

 

Of course IPD , sphere, axis and cylinder were professionally taken by an optician. With astigmatism and myopia you have a more or less small sweet spot with full sharpness of vision (in my case I can see up to 130% and have first class flight medical), but rolling eyes to the edges you loose sharpness when wearing glasses. So this is normal daily use and I couldn´t say like many others here that looking to the edges of the Reverb gets blurred picture. Wearing contact lenses depends on hard or soft ones, the soft ones don´t correct my astigmatism and I see only around100%, but I can use them during normal real live flying, I get problems manouvering zero to negative gs (they get "loose"), I must have spare glasses with me in the cockpit. Hard contacts aren´t that comfortable but I can see again up to 130% with them and of course rolling eyes doesn´t matter (like the soft ones) in regard to sharpness. My nightview is good, I can see without problems 5mag checking Ursa Minor. My 3d and colour view are normal. So with these eyes there is only one solution now I personally prefer: The vroptician.com (is the same as vroptiker.de) inserts with blueprotect coating (I don´t know them without coating....).

I don´t think it works this way, but I´m no optician and no Einstein in physics...

 

 

Comparing it to the first headsets I used, the Reverb is my choice, more than 20 years ago it was "no pain, no gain" like in the F-4 weapon system trainer (see pic of me from that time and my hair was more black than white), but there was a mechanical IPD adjustment at least..:megalol:

Yeah, that was basically my question.

What misalignment problem?

 

When I had a Reverb, it was most obvious when running fpsVR overlay.

Impossible to focus on it and DCS screen.

It's really really annoying because apparently it's not due to the HMD, so I don't want to return it back to HP. But ED doesn't seem to be aware of that unfortunately.
Not all the same model headsets are equal. For instance my Reverb has no issue with running the FPSVR overlay in DCS.

 

There was a similar issue with iRacing and most notably Samsung Odyssey+ models with a big variance in misalignment. One fix applied worked for some headsets and then rendered previously working headsets with the issue.

 

My view is that the tolerances of headset alignment is wide enough that some units get effected by certain applications. There has to be something that those apps are doing in presenting the image to SteamVR but finding it appears to be very tricky!

 

So you might well find a replacement Reverb doesn't have the issue.

Others claim to have a small sweet spot..

 

IDK much about optics or VR. Can someone explain why he has edge to edge clarity yet others do not. Its IPD related? Is having an IPD 64 going to give me a better sweet spot than someone with an IPD of 68? (for this device?)

Personally, I don't understand how Foxmike is seeing a 'perfect sweet spot'. I have IPD 68 - same as Foxmike - and I felt the sweet spot in the Reverb was anything but 'perfect'.

 

Still, eyes are funny things!

I've noticed a couple of odd issues with the Reverb and was wondering if anyone lese has. Does anyone see oddness with F/A-18 JHMCS display? And I noticed with lens flare turned on I see two different sun flares instead of just one. Rift S doesn't have either of these issues.

 

I'd prefer to use the Reverb as the SDE is greatly reduced and the clarity/resolution is clearly higher. Thanks

I've got my Reverb hopefully arriving next week. How do I set it up?

 

I understand I have to install SteamVR (should I go for the beta version) but is that it?

That's pretty much it to be honest. Windows Mixed Reality should start up automatically when you plug in the headset and then take you through the setup steps for room scaling etc.

 

It's a pretty painless process. Bear in mind when you start the controllers that you need to hold in the start button for a couple of seconds before they power up.

A small pie is soon eaten

Actually the set up was pretty painless in my opinion. Be running Windows 10 1903 with latest updates. Have Steam installed, SteamVR (beta), obtain Windows Mixed Reality for Steam VR and if you like fpsVR. The last is a $4 purchase but has some really nice tools. Everything is easy to set up and configure. And so far it just works.

 

I moved from a Rift S and was concerned about the process but once its all done, I just launch Steam VR and then start DCS like I always did. I primarily use DCS stand alone but you can of course use the steam version too.

Interesting. Couple of questions:

 

1) Why SteamVR Beta?

2) I’m also coming from the Rift S, is the clarity/resolution as good as people say? Is the FoV difference felt much?

3) Who or what is fpsVR?
