HP's Reverb VR Pro Headset

This is doing my head in... All I want to do is start DCS WITHOUT WMR starting up so I can use the mission editor on my normal screen, but every time I start DCS it goes to VR. Has to be a simple solution right? Any ideas?
Go to settings then click the tab all the way on the right for VR. Uncheck enable VR headset.

Skatezilla's launcher has the option to launch without vr.

Alternatively, you can make a copy of the exe with an added command, see sec 4 here:

For better or worse, I think the only real answer here is you have to try it yourself (so get a unit from a place with a good return policy). The thing is, the hard object specs only tell 50% of the story. The other 50% is how YOU feel about the performance balance. E.g., what is your minimum FPS before you feel it is not worth it? How much ghosting are you OK with? What is your low-FPS-nausea threshold? Two people can sit down on the exact machine and same mission and come away with opposite impressions.

 

That being said, I have a very similar machine to yours: i7-4790K @ 4Ghz, 16GB RAM, and 1080Ti. I tried the Reverb. LOVED the resolution. But had to reluctantly admit that I could not run it at that resolution happily. So I went with the Rift S.

 

I wrote about the comparison in more detail here:

You might fare a bit better because of your higher memory, but I think our CPU's are the bottleneck. But again, you really have to try it yourself. Also make sure you try it in the most complex conditions you usually fly. E.g., no point checking it out while flying over the sea. Fly through downtown Dubai, look to the left/right as you zip past buildings. Use a fast jet. Also get into some BFM and see if you can track the bandit through the ghosting. Get online on a busy server and fly a mission. etc.

 

Thanksfor the anwser! Rift S is my firt option, actually!.

Do you not get the option to start in normal (non VR) mode? This is with the Steam version:

I have been having problems with Steam Failing when I try and either start a mission or go into multiplayer. It always seems to be on at the very end of loading either the mission or fly screen.

I'm using Steam Beta as well as Open beta.

I wanted to see if this was just something happening to me. I have all the latest hardware including a 2080Ti card.

Excuse, if that has been asked already.

 

Since reinstall, I have a weird issue with my Reverb: In DCS, it does not track longitudinal movements: When I move my head towards the instrument panel, it moves away at the same rate (i.e. it remains in the same distance).

I use 100% the setup as described in https://vr4dcs.com/2019/09/10/reverb-settings-for-dcs/

Need to run room calibration on windows mixed reality window to get full 6DoF movement.

No you only need to look left,right and to the bottom.

 

If this don't work, stop only Steam VR and go in the WMR room. Now you read the instructions and do the same as I wrote above. If the tracking feels right again, start DCS and have fun.

Correct

 

However for me at certain times, the look left, right and bottom window would show not up.

In such circumstances, I just do the room calibration process while dcs world is still on. This would put your view on top of your cockpit, press recentre button and you are back inside the cockpit with all movement working. This help me from having to restart dcs.

The consumer is the better Choice for Home use. It's the same Reverb,only without the leather Facepad and the Short Backpack-PC Cable for commercial Use.

The Pro version comes with a better warranty though, the Consumer unit is return to base to be fixed or replaced, the Pro HP send out a replacement and you return the faulty unit or part.

Just a heads up, not in the uk. I asked about this last time I spoke to the HP people and they said that was never the case here.

 

It’s with a heavy heart but I will be sending my reverb back for the final time, I just can’t get decent performance with it on my 1080ti. (It’s a bit more complicated than that, but coming from a rift s I can’t justify the £600 for the gains with comparable performance.)

 

If you’ve got a 2080ti I think it would be spot on, but there’s no way im spending £1300 on gfx card

Worked for me in the UK. I did reference the VR QPM manager who posted on Reddit here:

 

I don't think the HP support guy knew much about the Reverb but once I explained how I understood the warranty worked they sent out a new unit.

That's unfortunate, luckily I don't see the same issues in performance with my 1080ti. Nvidia will be releasing the 3080 series in June. I'll definitely be getting a 3080ti as soon as the aftermarket cards are out.

Interesting, I got told no chance. But if you have the right info then I guess they don’t have a leg to stand on. I stand corrected. :) Just out of interest did you talk to them online or over the phone? I did phone but did think to myself that via chat I could send links such as the one you posted. Teach me to be overly reliant on old tech.

 

@sze5003 I’m glad you are happy with your reverb, the lack of sde is amazing and it really is a nice bit of kit. I think for me it really came down to: is this £600 better than my rift s? And it wasn’t (IMO) once I had dialled the various settings to get what I consider “good performance.”

Had I bought a reverb after the cv1 instead of the rift s it would be a different story, the clarity really is very very nice.

 

Also thanks for all help and advice :)

 

Edit, I really hope the 3080ti costs less than the 2080ti. Whoever decided crypto currency mining is down to gfx cards needs a slap. Would be much better for very one if it was sound cards, who needs them? ;)

I spoke to HP over the phone. I did stumble a bit when they asked me the name of the HP Reverb Product manager as I only knew him as Voodooimaxx on Reddit!

 

Make sure you ask for the Workstation team rather than Gaming as two different depts deal with business or consumer.
