  1. Thanks chili. These tests basically show that we may be much better off aiming for an RTX 3080 (instead of a 3090) and then probably to use the funds to upgrade to a well overclocking CPU/MB/Memory instead.
  2. Rift CV1 got me into VR. Honorable memories to it. The following headsets like Rift S were already not up to the competition, picture quality wise. With the Quest 2 not being sold in Germany, and it receiving a destructive review in Ars Technica, I am really wondering if it can compete to PC VR devices. Its single screen means a lot of that horizontal resolution gets lost due to the long IPD range. Allegedly it's more on the level of a Rift S than anywhere near the Reverb G2. The closest IPD setting is 1.5mm from mine. However, if they support "Air Link", as Carmack mentioned, there won't be much that could hold me back from purchasing it, even if that means importing it from France or Denmark.
  3. Very probable. Most new headsets have had this issue in IL-2, especially those with brandnew dimensions, until they were put in manually. Usually all information on a headset gets handed over automatically by SteamVR/OpenVR's API, and they wouldn't need to have the headsets in their Offices in Moscow bar one or two to find global bugs. The Reverb G2 has new dimensions. It depends on problematic implementation of IL-2 of the viewpoint matrices handed over by the API. I wish they went opensource with these sections. In best case, it works out of the box and you'll just use the ingame function to change IPD to adjust soft scaling issues. In the worst case, you'll get a funny feeling, no presence, a bit of a headache or eye-strain after a while, especially while zooming. But in any case, it will be kind of useable, even if not perfect. I got an HP Reverb G2 on day 1 pre-order as well and will report anything off with it to the bug sections as soon as it's here. I hope the Devs will revisit and fix the underlying issues behind it one day.
  4. You wear glasses. If you intend to keep the glasses, the Index is your headset of choice. It offers eye-relief, like the VivePro. It also has per-headset adjustment of distortion based on the individual inaccuracy (tolerance) during assembly. It's thus always a good bet and not a lottery like others. The HP Reverb G2 may be your pick if you plan on buying customized inserts or use contact lenses. I recommend getting used to contacts, and recommend against using glasses in VR HMDs without eye-relief.
  5. It's in the API. Pulling the proper transformation matrices for the viewports is required. Then you can build the viewports based on the dynamic real values handed over from OpenVR, and let their system do the rest...
  6. Yeah,... no. First: It has nothing to do with VR legs. Mine are 100ft long as well. Second: Motion Smoothing is inacceptable as soon as many objects move in different vectors at high velocity. In racing, it's all just one vector, with lower relative velocities. In a Flight Combat Simulator, Motion Smoothing can be highly disturbing, immersion breaking, as it creates double pictures of the leading wingtips, as well as strong ghosting of perpendicular moving objects, as well as sun flashes creating literal lightning into your pupils. That ghosting is not just the opposite of eye-candy, but it also makes identification during dogfights much harder. It would be great if all this did work properly, but it doesn't. There is a lot of room for improvement. I am certain the Devs are onto it, but it's a small team, will take time, and the engine hasn't been written with VR in mind. So it's a long, steady road of Kaizen.
  7. Please name headset model, software used (openVR or opencomposite), and type of IL-2 client (via Steam or standalone) ?
  8. The cover is for the Reverb, yes. The sun damage is possible to all headsets equally. I always keep them stored in a camera rucksack or stashed away.
  9. The idea that they'd redo the lenses 5 weeks before launch was ridiculous anyway. The article is garbage, just like you guys said. What is more likely is that the demand was driven so high on the pre-orders that they couldn't cover it. To avoid a Pimax-like debacle of people screaming hell and mephisto (😉) , they had to postpone the launch until a certain ratio of pre-orders is covered. People already gave their full part of the contract and expect their G2 to ship within the first week. If someone pre-ordered and had to wait until end of November to get it shipped - most people would get pissed rather quickly. 1st week patience, 2nd week anxious, 3rd week strolling to Reddit and then it goes on.
  10. I hope it does. I got Pimax' ET here already, but all I can do is put it on my nose in front of the mirror like glasses 🤓 and blubber engine sounds, imagening to myself how cool it would be. Because I'm still waiting for the damn Vision 8KX. Thank you Pimax! 😑
  11. You have more time, our HP Reverb G2 was just delayed to 3rd week of October by HP. Went under the carpet in the hypestorm the new RTX-gen created.
  12. Yep. Pretty much. Except for those with two left hands, unable to properly set up a system. But such people always had problems finding fun in games. Playing a slideshow never was and never will be any fun. Similar to people buying high-end mobile phones and then only using them for calls and WhatsApp, and afterwards at lunch they tell their colleagues "I bought a new phone, but why I did I wouldn't know, all these fancy features aren't needed by anybody". In response, others just cringe and hope the conversation goes somewhere else soon. Like the kaputt hand of Veronica, ridden by Tendinitis due to working 9 hours per day with a $15 mouse.
  13. Oh it does not help you in some cases: They started sending out 8KX a month ago, but somehow my first-minutes order was edited by a support agent falsely in the end of 2019, which means they haven't even sent out my 8KX yet. It's absolutely ridiculous, they've had half of my money for the 8KX since the Kickstarter, the other half since 2019 (Upgrade Plan). I am still waiting for the Support Reply as to why my order hasn't been sent yet. What I can say already, don't buy there. Only buy Pimax through Amazon or from shops like Immersive Display (France).
  14. I bet you won't be disappointed @dburne I've checked out the current Oculus headset line-up a while ago. I can promise you, that you won't be disappointed, by what this next or even the current generation offers to you in comparison.
