Hi , I was watching a you tube video earlier about G2 tweaks and in it he was adjusting the FOV / IPD with what seemed to be some kind of software tool and the 2 controllers......I wondered if this was part of the initial set up of the G2 I may have missed....? Can anyone point me how to do this? See the video here, from 11 minutes onwards: 

 

 

Secondly, when in VR, I get a non full screen rendition of the VR output on my monitor.....is this correct, as I am unable to get it to render across the whole monitor. In another thread, I was told this was the cause of losing the mouse sometimes, but Alt / enter etc dont make it go full screen, and I also have full screen option ticked in the DCS GUI..... Does this matter or not? 

 

Thanks

I've done no tweak to the G2 apart from using the WMR debug alignment tool that Bignewy posted here 

I swapped top and bottom and made symmetrical left/right.  That improved comfort in DCS tremendously.

 

Regarding screen rendition...yes have the same as you. not full screen. Don't think this has any impact on mouse losing etc.  This is more a WMR / SteamVR conflict.  Users launching DCS by simply clicking on the icon from a desktop window directly in WMR's cliff house say they have no mouse issue... I'll test that this week.

I get the same screen rendition as you do (no fix that I am aware of).  I also lose complete mouse "click-ability" in the FA-18C occasionally-- it usually corrects itself after a couple of minutes.  I get better reliability with the "mouse in window" option selected in the DCS "VR" option page.

You might be losing the mouse because you are clicking on the task bar at the bottom of the screen.  I fix this by dragging the Windows task bar to the right when playing DCS.  (Just click and drag)

He's just using the hardware IPD adjust slider.  The graphic you see appears in your G2 when being adjusted.

Really?   don't see that in mine... I get an indication of the IPD when I move the slider but nothing like in the video where he adjusts left and right moving a green bar with his controller (I do not have controllers though). Am I missing out here?.

Yep, I see exactly the same as in that video when adjusting the slider when in SteamVR.
