Just changed my avatar picture to something less aggressive and probably more fun ;-) The previous picture is the one I'm using at CGC's Collector's Society, but I don't think we're many CGC CS members in here, thus no one will recognize me ;-)

  • Quite nice that you can hold 3 grenades - 2 can be stored in the wrist holders and one on the shotgun. Upgraded to the grenade launcher just before I met the first really big Combine soldier, but he (she? Lol) was very easy to kill with the grenade…

Johnny English 2 took me by surprise - it was really funny, nearly had me crying of laughter of few times - that does not happen often these days. Reminded me a lot of a modern version of Inspector Jacques Clouseau in Pink Panther -…
  • Alyx is totally massive - nothing like this has ever happened to VR - can't help but wondering just how big the impact will be - this is like a flawless victory.  But let's take a step back to really understand the impact of Alyx. This is Lone Echo…
  • Btw, adaptive ss also means that benchmark results might not be trusted, unless the person doing the testing has found a way to lock the ss level. I've seen several benchmark results where info about locking ss was not provided - actually I've seen …

 There was a post on Reddit some days ago that Alyx overrides the SteamVR res setting, but I have not tried it, because due to no asw 2.0 I need those 90 fps - and adaptive ss seems to work perfectly with my rig. You could try to en…
  • Beware of the Alyx effect - and do not underestimate it, lol  B) (Image) Ok, he probably should try Lone Echo, Stormland and Asgard's Wrath, but then he'll' need to get the Quest, Index isn't good for those games, they really need to be experien…
  • This one was also fun - can you see the difference between Low and Ultra? Is it worth a heavy decrease in ss?  :D https://www.game-debate.com/news/28601/half-life-alyx-pc-low-vs-ultra-graphics-comparison Not sure the author realizes how much he l…
  • This is probably a great example of the Alyx autoscaling - there might not really be any/much difference (maybe in 1 pic if you can find it) - and beware of the placebo effect (thinking that Ultra/Max looks better than Low just because you know it's…
  • I must be getting mad, been staring at this pic for long, but can't see any difference. Apart from the fps - clearly something is happening - but I'd say if it's that subtle and the performance impact is so great (and the associated ss downgrade), t…

  • Alyx currently sold more than 500k copies (ok, some of us got it for free): (Image)
  • Contact Oculus Support, they usually can help.

I just saw that my save game said chapter 4 instead of 3 - am I moving too fast?  :# 
  • Alyx auto-adjust resolution (super sampling) depending on your rig's performance. Try to use "Low Fidelity" if you're not already using that - forcing High or Ultra Fidelity may reduce resolution a lot - at least using normal PCVR hmds lik…
  • Also try to use Low Fidelity in Alyx and the latest Alyx-optimized drivers from Nvidia in case of bad performance. - And v15 PTC might also be a great idea like @kojack wrote. Note that some have complained about low performance and stuttering using…

It's more my experience that OTT works in Steam games and apps that support native Oculus drivers, but not if native drivers are not supported. I read that some dude couldn't get OTT to work in Alyx, which makes sense in that perspe…

Makes sense, because like Boneworks, Alyx was thoroughly designed for lcd hmds - although there are several dark locations where oled may have an edge.
  • Nice video, basically he says after testing different gpus and hmds that you just need a GTX 1070 to get the best of Alyx and that the Index controllers are lightyears ahead of the competition, but he prefers the wireless Vive Pro hmd: https://yout…

  • (Quote) &#13;Did read that some tried to rebind controls, not sure they succeeded, I've just gotten used to shooting with my right hand - same as in Doom VFR, lol. I guess that automatically changes normal difficulty into hard and lets me enjoy …

  • (Quote) &#13;Some dudes on Reddit said that OTT and SteamVR res settings had no effect in Alyx due to the build-in adaptive super sampling. But it must be easy to test. When I change from Low Fidelity in a demanding location to Ultra Fidelity, …
  • More CV1 Alyx love  <3 (Quote)
  • Today's big question, I can't seem to find any answers - and after staring at many scenes and objects, I simply can't see the difference: What is the difference between using high or Ultra textures in Alyx? Maybe it's compressed vs. uncompressed? …
  • Don't worry about resolution in Alyx - just set Alyx to "Low fidelity", and you'll get the best image quality your rig can handle in 90 fps. The Source engine scales everything including resolution to fit 90 fps on your rig. When choosing …
