DCS World in VR

Recommended Posts

So I just recently started playing DCS with the Oculus Rift S. And all I can say is WOW!. While I had a expectation of being able to head track, I was expecting the graphics to basically just look like what it does with a standard monitor. What I was not expecting was that the cockpits were actually going to be 3D. This has taken the game to a whole different level.

 

One thing that I wanted to share was that I was having a difficult time dealing with the interactive cockpits while in VR. I am right handed and operating my track ball with my left while in VR was a challenge to say the least. But I came across a solution to be able to easily use the VR head position as my interface method. I found a finger mouse on amazon for $16 that I could use for the mouse clicks so I wouldn't have to take my hand off the throttle.

The mouse functionality is absolute crap but I strap it backwards to my pointer finger and just use the mouse buttons and wheel. Works like a charm so I thought I would share. BTW I get no referral or affiliate kickback from this. Just wanted to share.

Also, us VR types have a subthread under INPUT/OUTPUT forum. Lots of great information there.

I've been using a finger mouse for a while now. Once you get used to it, it makes interacting with the cockpit much quicker. I use it on my left index finger. Great for turning dials as well
