So the Quest 2 is my first ever personal VR headset, I did not purchase the elite strap and I do suffer sometimes from motion sickness in general on boats, trains and certian types of rides at theme parks.
The defualt strap to be honest is poor on me its fiddly and just doesnt sit right on my face no matter what I do. If its not tight enough on my head then the headset will drop slightly and the focus on screen will blur as for some reason the sweet spot is so tight on this quest which is rather annoying me.
I have the IPD set at 2 but 1 doesnt seem much different just feels more close to my top of my nose slightly. I dont know if IPD will effect my sickness
My major gripe with it is when the headset it tight against my face I start getting a slight headache above my eyebrows, and after a while say 15 mins as thats how long I can use it for at one time before I need a break. Its like being pissed drunk after a night out when I have had one to many drinks and I come home and the room is pitch black and I am laying on my bed and my head is spinning around even when laying down and you know youre gonna puke up its not nice.
just feels like im slightly drunk and I need a couple hours or more before I can put it back on again, my dad tried it to and he felt the same you feel weird for the rest of the day like I get a lingering headache and feel lightheaded and just feel yuck.
I went into the developer experiemental settings and set the device for 90 hertz but that dont seem to help.
There is no way as it stands ill be able to stomach playing anything intense I can only just about handle big screen let alone even trying fps games like half life or the upcoming medal of honor.
I think if the quest felt more comfortable on my face and my face did not feel sore or under heavy pressure and no headache I might be able to last for 30 minuites or an hour. I would prefer a halo style strap that I have seen on other vr headsets as it should take the weight of the headset off the front of my face.
If I lay down on a flat surface and dont move my head and keep it still and watch a short video its manageble apart from the weight slowly hurting my face which for me still makes it unviable for watching a full movie, instead I go back to an actual TV to watch a film.
But as it stands I cant have the strap less tight as it ruins the image, I dont want to grind on playing and feel so sick that I actually puke up as then I wont want to play it at all. The quest 2 elite strap I dont think will help much at all as the weight will still be fixed against the face even if its counter balanced slightly.
But other than that I do like the quest 2 so far its not quite there yet but it will do in the future.
If anyone has any resonable viable tips to reduce sickness I will give it a try.
