I've had a weekend to hop in a couple planes and do some quick missions in IL2. Still blown away by VR and the feeling of really being in the cockpit and feeling of flight. It's completely game changing and I can't wait to try it out in some other sims. Wish this came out 10 years ago Now I have way less time to play with a baby on the way due next month but hey I'll still try to fly when I can. Here's some comments on the Rift S and some stuff I still need help tweaking or figuring out how to do:
1) How do I turn off the controllers? I don't really need them in IL-2, so I don't want to waste their battery when flying...is there a way to turn them off or do they automatically or go in some sort of standby power saving mode when not used for a while? I tried taking the battery out but get a warning pop up mid game saying the headset can't be used without the controllers plugged in.
2) Graphic settings in SteamVR and the Oculus software. Where are these adjustments? I keep reading on this board about super sampling, pixel density, different resolutions, ASW 2.0...where are all these settings in both interfaces and how do I adjust them? Or are you guys adjusting stuff in the Nvidia graphics panel? I looked a few times and having a hard time finding them.
3) The stock built in halo head band sound isn't that good like everyone has said. I was able to dig out an old pair of Sennheiser over the ear headphones that fit over the halo band so I'll probably use these from now on. My only problem is it's yet another big cable attached to my head, how are you guys dealing with VR cable management? Do you Velcro zip tie some slack so you can freely move and check six easily? I don't want to put any stress on the wires how is everyone dealing with this?
4) Still can't get rid of that blue ring. What's the easiest way to turn this off in SteamVR?
5) My Nvidia 2060 has a USB-C port, I'd love to use this are there any adapters out yet for the Rift S that go Display Port / USB 3.0 to USB-C? I bought one off Amazon that said it was "Oculus Ready" but it has an HDMI...must of been for the old Rift I was so sad when I found that out. I have 3 monitors and I hate having to unplug one to use the Rift S, would much rather keep all 3 plugged in and put the Rift S on the USB-C port.
6) Might be my smaller sized head but the cushioned part of the forehead pad doesn't really touch my forehead when I have the headset on and tightened. So the plastic part rubs against my forehead and is uncomfortable over time. When I make sure the front and back pads are on my head properly, the headset display is too low and is out of focus for me to see clearly so I have to move it up again to get it in the sweet spot, but then it starts rubbing my head again. Am I just putting the thing on wrong or do I have a weird shaped head? I'll keep messing with it.
Get VR it's a game changer wow. Totally worth it! I get goosebumps every time I take off, or close the canopy down and feel claustrophobic. It's sooo cool.
