    Samsung HMD & HMD+?

    Since the original Odyssey and the newer plus use the same screens, I would imagine the differences are more other features and not resolution. Bob

    No file to edit, Its a physical adjustment in the headset. Bob

    OMG OMG OMG is this amazing

    Well progress is made I'm getting 75 + fps now with optimized settings. I think if I install the prop removal, view zoom patch I'll be in the ballpark. I've been practicing 1v1 in the quick mission mode. It's unreal how realistic it feels. Finding the enemy plane after the merge is a challenge.i really need to work on it. The game (like real life) tells me it's dangerous to get into turning fights. I'm loving the FW by far the best. Love the aileron authority. In comparison the 109 looses authority when getting slow (with a little flap) and in a turning fight It can bite. Watching the utube videos has illustrated to me how valuable the zoom ability makes the 2d version so much easier in recognition of others. I dove in on a friendly in VR and was surprisingly close before I recognized it was not a target. Certainly in firing range before I recognized the wing shape. Plus the 2D version has a huge wide angle view available for Spotting opponents. End of minor rant. The 3dmigto should be built into the game as delivered imo. I'm not a pc techie type using Macs for past 15 years at work. I own a pc for gaming. The installation on the surface seems daunting. The imersion is amazing. In the bomber escorts mission, we were flying in and out of clouds, dealing with rain in some, flying 100moh faster than the bombers we were escioting, it was challenging. I was there with all the stress and tension of reality. This is amazing. Time for me to go multi-player Bob

    Your are correct, editing the "renderTargetScale" does appear to sharpen the image. I was noticing very minor screen door effect after. I much prefer it that way (sharper) vs. blurry image. It may be intended as most vr games are not detail rich like this one. Thanke, good recommendation. Bob

    Progress. the 5 key worked as it should but I could not change position using the 6 stack (home-end-ins-page up - etc) I dug into setup and was able to tweak settings but I'm not getting 90fps. But it feels ok, smooth enough with a little visible framing during fast roll events. The plane dynamics are not impacted but I can see little frames. Pretty good I think. The ground detail could be better but honestly it looks mostly like summer haze when flying the real thing. Close in objects beneath and around aircraft are the only weakness. Maybe next gen in a few years will allow this. . Flight dynamics of FW 190 -3 is impressive, quick airplane, monster roll rate, guns are over the top. It requires coordinated flight to gain best corner speed. Tough without seat of the pants, but I was getting better at keeping the ball centered after a while. warning, landing with power off is interesting, huge sink in dirty config, must carry power into flair or it hits a little hard. But, I'm landing with a heavy plane during test flights. Next up Hotas and rudders, I was lifting goggles to find key commands( not workable). Crashed trying to find brakes on rollout... Its a whole new level. appreciate all the help bob

    OG Odyssey owners

    During setup of my Odyssey I had to choose between large space for standing games and chair sitting where play space is restricted like your flying chair. It works perfectly. I have the +, and have a small space like you but I had no issue. I might have a more recent software release. Just throwing out ideas as mine works fine. Bob

    I'm continuing to experiment. I played off line and turned all tags off. Finding ground targets is tough. One flight I took on 4 opponents, started in clouds at near dusk. Wow was that tough, while I knew where the intercept was to occur it was not easy finding them. Viability was really challenging, nothing was distinct, the low in the sky lighting made it impossible to get a clear picture. Seemed quite realistic. I can see I need a better hotas setup. My old ms sidewinder was limiting. I used to fly for JG26 in Warbirds so I'm flying the FW 3. You want to dogfight you better keep the ball in the center. In getting nearly locked 45 in the frame counter in flight but near 90 at other times. It this something to do with the Windows reality setup. I'm not seeing much different in the 45 no matter what I set graphics options to. One last question, when I jump into the cockpit, im not always in the best seating position. The normal keys to adjust seating position do not work. How to adjust once in game is my question. Bob

    I have an i7 7700. 1080ti Fast memory plus ssd It's should be fine. I normally use a 4k monitor. VR not crystal clear but still the 3d in the cockpit is just Amazing B Let me add some commentary I set up a mission with 10 enema, il2's I had a blast running and gunning. The tail gunners caused some damage but I killed quite a few.enemys.. But I could look at the holes in my wings, some clear through that I could see through. I did strafing runs with a P47. I could clearly see the crossing of the MG's path and where the rounds were most effective Just life changing B
  9. I got my Odyssey+ in today. I flew a number of the quick missions just to get the flavor. Lordy was that amazing. I have a pilots license (aerobatically trained, fyi) and I for the first time ever in a flight sim felt I was "really" in the cockpit. I have to sort out a number of things. Screen door effect was minimal and easily forgotten. The default SS was on 200% and I adjusted to 130 and didn't see a big difference. It seemed like the frame rate was locked on 45 but it looked pretty good. Some ground shimmering was there My gunnery was sooo much more precise, but I do see the reason for object rec being a common discussion. Time to sort through the settings, a little more clarity would be nice. Got to find a thread with suggested settings. I had the very best time "ever" flying a sim and I've been flying Sims since the 80's. Started flying air warrior by kesmai. I was one of the founders of Warbirds so simming is in my blood. This is over the top. bob

    Oculus Rift - Vive - VR. -basic questions

    Well, after Christmas all the local stores were out of stock. I elected to order the Odyssey+. I went back and forth between it and the rift, but in the end I elected to do the Samsung. I'll have it next week. Thanks for all the help. Bob

    Advice needed: The best i7 CPU

    Is this something the game designers/coders will resolve or improved in the future. Bob

    Thanks Wulfen The only reference to an improved OR is a version called a Quest. It's a stand alone not PC driven. I think occulus is a fine company, is there something else(

    OK Santa brought me a Gift card for enough to buy either the Ruff or the Odyssey+. Thanks santa. I ran both the rift and the steam vr performance apps. My computer passed both benchmarks with an excellent score. Steam vr was at top of bar chart. My original plan was to buy the Odyssey but it's not in stock, the rift is. If anyone has experienced both, what would you recommend? Is there a noticeable resolution improvement? My sense is the rift has better fit unless I'm one of the lucky ones. I was hoping to get this underway. Oh well... I've not been able to try either as my local stocking store doesn't allow a demo. Bob

    Back to the original topic. I'm getting 60+ fps in 4k. Im assuming it should be ok for the O+ Chiliwili. Thanks I'll look into it. muchas gracias Bob

    OK, short answer is no. 7700k is only possible upgrade. Not enough difference to justify. B
