hi, i have just purchased oculus rift for my sim racing and elite, i only want my rift to work for me sitting down,  is there a simple way of setting this up  ??.  Do i set my sensors for standing , I did try setting it for the height whilst sitting and that was too low, and set for standing and i was too high.
Do i set my sensors at the same height both facing my face or can i put 1 sensor behind me, also the first time i tried setting up the sensors i did it without room scale because literally i only have the room for my sim rig and it sort of worked ok ish, help

    if sitting you only need one sensor... I exclusively simrace and only have one sensor for my rig.
    my other sensor and touch controllers are just collecting dust at present.

    Just set it all up for standing, start a game where you are sitting down, press the Oculus button on the remote/right Touch controller/Xbox button on an Xbox controller and click on Reset View. If you're playing Elite Dangerous you can use F12 as a shortcut.

    cheers snowdog, do you think its better with 1 sensor or 2 ?,

    2 sensors because then you can play the standing games too.

    Go ahead and set up both sensors, you have them wth not? Whilst you may not need it, still better to have it for even better tracking. Plus go ahead and set up Touch while you are at it. Trust me, when I bought my Rift I thought I would never need Touch, I only did combat flight sims,  once I tried them I was like - are you kidding me?

    I have had a blast with some Touch supported games, granted my flight sims still get the bulk of my time, but some Touch games make for a nice diversion at times. Having a blast with Star Trek Bridge Crew.

    Lol, that is why you get a chair with rollers, slide back away some from monitors. I run dual monitors myself, never had a problem. I do encourage you to at least try Touch once or twice. Again, does not mean you have to use them and you will still have two sensors set up for exceptional tracking for what you do.

    Just about everything I am playing these days are seated games.
