  • You can watch 3D movies in the Rift and it's really awesome. A lot better 3D effect than on cinema but the screen seems just as big. However to buy a 800$ headset for only this seems a bit of a waste to me. You could look at the Pimax headset that's…
  • Hopefully Facebook will just hand over 500m$ to Oculus and pretend like nothing happened. Because if not, Oculus is pretty much screwed. Keep in mind that 500 million is the income of about 800 000 Rifts sold. Or an equivalent of selling the next 1,…
  • Do you have Touch? I had a 12 year old try my Rift over Christmas and he really liked First Contact, and wanted to play it several times. He also liked Bullet Train, but some might argue that's not for 12-year olds ...
  • A few games show everything you see through the rift on the monitor, that's when the mirror looks like this: http://www.animechtechnologies.com/atsite/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/aritco1.png Since the screens in the rift are actually curved (at lea…
  • I bought mine second hand and have had no issues. I bought it from a site that let me check the product for 24 hours before they sent the money to the seller. It was also unopened and unused. 
  • Uh. I'm Swedish and I've travelled there several times, don't know why being white has anything to do with it though? And what does this even have to do with VR? I'm confused >.<
  • Two wireless 4K screens at 120hz won't work for anyone except NASA. The amount of rendered pixels is 233.3 million per second for CV1/Vive, for this device it would be 2.1 billion. And then it's wireless. Not gonna happen unless you time travel to 2…
  • Agreed! The sound of bullets flying by your head and dodging them in slow motion makes you feel so fucking cool. I've played all the levels so many times I can pull them off in seconds now :D
  • I'm recieving my Touch next week and I'm wondering if it's okay to place the two sensors at different heights? I'd want one to stand on my desk and one in the corner about shoulder height. Both of them don't fit on my desk unless they're like 1 mete…
  • That sounds like a very frustrating problem. Worst case scenario maybe you could order it from Amazon or buy from Best Buy instead? 
  • God I feel sorry for you because we all know how much money is involved in these purchases. I find it strange though that you can not get a refund for the laptop, you definitely should be able to unless you made some special deal.
  • Ordered oculus touch Yesterday, shipping estimated 16th to 21st december. Not too bad as long as I get it before Christmas :)
  • I have a very small playspace aswell. Just measured it and it's 1,5m x 2,5m (4,9ft x 8,2ft). Does anyone with Touch have opinions on whether that will work or should I drag my PC out to the living room? (This will piss my family off)
  • UPS tried to deliver to me while I was away as well, but they called me and drove over to the university which I was at and handed it to me personally :) It's insane that they would just leave it at your doorstep.
  • @Nobbs66 Almost equal, except the Rift is a lot more comfortable/light, has better motion controllers and lower system requirements. Since they're the same price, OR definitely has more value.
  • &#13;More likely HTC Vive 1.0 will become irrelevant once Touch comes out, since there'll be zero reasons to buy a Vive after that. Steam supporting 3 HMD's is only good for Steam, not for Vive.
  • I've finally managed to accept the fact that it's never going to be removed and started ignoring it. However every time a friend or family member tries my Rift and says "hey, there's a notice here saying your PC doesn't meet the requirements&qu…
  • I'm assuming it's a game your talking about and not oculus home? Someone mentioned the same problem here: https://forums.oculus.com/developer/discussion/44191/cant-install-anything-in-oculus-store-as-of-today-error-occurred-internal-error-ovr801816…
  • As far as I know, Oculus Rift doesn't work on mac even if you use bootcamp :/  
  • @Daddoofly78 what I'm saying is that setting HMD quality to 2.0 versus setting SDK tool PPD to 2.0 looks exactly the same. And using the SS ingame setting isn't as important, because the image improvement isn't as big.
  • @Freddy888 yes it applies some changes to the coding, you don't even need to have it open while you're playing! @Daddoofly78  They're not overwriting each other, and anyways the settings have very different effects. The SDK supersampling looks like…
  • @Freddy888 I'm glad it looks better! :) I forgot to mention that you shouldn't launch Elite through ED profiler, just press "apply/apply GUI only" and start it through Oculus Home/Steamvr as normally!
  • @Freddy888 Yes that's the debug tool, and I'm using a 980ti but my CPU is rather weak so I may be slightly bottlenecked atm. On 970 you should probably set the in-game SS to 0.65 like Aereko or lower some of the "high" values to medium, bu…
  • Yeah tweaking Elite Dangerous's graphics settings can be a full time job  B) I use basically the same settings. The SS in E:D is very different to the pixel per display pixel override in the Debug tool. Cranking the "HMD Quality" value up …
  • @falken76 780ti performs waaay better than the minimum spec card: http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-960-vs-Nvidia-GTX-780-Ti/3165vs2165 The requirements were always GTX970/960 or greater, not newer. I find it very strange that this G…
  • VR was just declared this years Christmas present here in Sweden, which is a huge thing every year. So it's been getting headlines on all major news websites and it's quite funny to see how uneducated most journalists seem to be about it. 
  • @Calibos nope haha! I was a complete VR virgin and people only seemed to talk about god-rays and resolution at the time. I got my rift in June although idk what that has to do with anything  :o
  • I think you're right. No one had told me the FoV was smaller than irl so I was quite disappointed when I put my Rift on and it felt like I was using horse blinders >.< although it was still an amazing experience as a whole. Dark games definit…
  • I think he's referring to this sudden price jump from 798$ to 942€ that's displayed on the website. I agree it's very confusing, and I don't understand why it'd be so hard to display the actual price in Europe instead of the American one.
