  • DCS is a memory hog, it's most likely that it is still loading in the background and when it's done your frame rate jumped back up to 40.  If you and your buddy run something like your own Through the Inferno server with nothing loaded in the backgr…
  • The devs of the apps will need to update them, but I doubt they'll even consider it.  All the software that used the remote was from the CV1 days before we even had touch controllers.  We also got this weird block of plastic with no information, we …

 What are the Rift S speakers like?  Are they good quality or are they like cheap dollar store speakers?  I'd just use the PC sound, turn off Rift S audio in control panel and have Oculus use your computer speakers for sound output.…

 I figured Oculus would sell the HMDs at a loss considering they have their own STEAM that they want everyone to use.  CV1 was $600 + $200 for Touch when they first came out, they rapidly dropped the price down to $399.  I actually …
  • My guess would be that it's possible but they are not going to offer support on it because Mobile WiFi is spotty, it may be good in some areas but it sucks in a lot.  Probably too much hassle to support.  I honestly would have expected them to have …
  • I have PCVR and thought about getting quest, but I don't think I'd use it much.  I don't use my regular VR that much, going mobile doesn't seem like it would make me use it more.  I certainly wouldn't take it to work to use on my breaks or lunch bre…
  • Wow, it's amazing how these things work these days.  That's good to know.

I guess I just got lucky.  Mine was pretty much plug and play, no shifting view or tracking issues.

 I think it's very apparent that they will abandon the PCVR before too long.  Carmacks plan doesn't even include PCVR, it's all about mobile.  I'm glad I buy all my software on Steam, but this still stinks.  None of the competitors …
  • You shouldn't be able to play a game while it's downloading, it's an EXE that needs to be executed in order to be installed.  I don't think an existing game would work either because it's still an EXE that patches the install so it should have to co…
  • You probably ruined your headset by using windex on the lenses.  I don't know about the Rift S, but the original CV1 said to never use cleaners on the lenses because it could very easily damage them.  Perhaps that's what you've done with your set.  …
  • Hopefully you won't need a replacement, I'm willing to bet that the Sensors and Original Touch controllers will be discontinued any day now.
  • (Quote) I don't care about warranty since I'm no longer covered.  I care about being able to continue using my device if the cable goes out.  As of right now, if mine breaks, I'm SOL because I can't buy this proprietary cable anywhere.  It has fail…

 Good lord, it's happened repeatedly?  You should buy a UPS and put your system on that, at least you could shut it down and it won't go through a spike at all.  Your equipment should be fine in that situation.  That being said, I t…

 Oh I agree, but with no options, someone might give it a try.  It's a shame that the only thing that might sway oculus to continue support is the threat of counterfeit parts flooding the market because they refuse to support a devi…

 Nice, so they acknowledge that they have no clue, and are willing to look into it for you probably because the issue was pushed.  But you had better not expect this to be a priority, they're already setting you up to not expect any…

 I absolutely believe those get filed right into the trash when presented, they don't care.  I hope it sways them, but my guess is they'll just ignore us all because we're just noise to them.  They know they got you by the short and…
  • Ugghh, sounds terrible, but to each their own....
  • Reddit and google groups I assume....  The go is just a 3dof headset that's almost like a Samsung gear.  It's not very interesting to me at all, I assume the same can be said about the majority that have an actual interest in real VR.  But it's a gr…

 You're referring to the Oculus Headset that they couldn't keep on the shelves due to demand right?  Was that part of your ability to spot trends do to your life time of gaming that told you this was a definite failure?  No VR heads…

 Ha, what a cop out answer.  Respond to them with this: "Thank you for your quick response, just to clarify... Are you saying that it is unknown when the cable will be available because Oculus has not decided on weather they wi…

Fallout 4 was not developed for any VR headset, it's the original PC game they released years ago, they just ported it to VR.  The reason you see that on steam is because it was originally ported to VR and the Devs were using an HTC…

 No my friend, the lower horsepower doesn't mean they are unable to develop great games.  It means that developers worth their salt will fall back on programming days of old and actually optimize their games, they'll work within the…

You have no idea what it costs for Oculus to build the quest, you have an assumption at best.  The current Trade wars are also increasing the costs of everything comprised of that unit.  I don't understand what you're saying about F…

 It's brand new, devs are making games for it now.  I love my PCVR but I know what to expect in the future.  EVERYONE always follows the money.  Quest and devices like it is where the money is.  PC is too expensive because 1, you yo…

 It absolutely does mean that you can't get the cable.  If you were still able to, surely some Oculus Staffer would have chimed in by now, but it's radio silence.  Either there's nobody in the company that actually reads these forum…

 It's pretty cheap as it is.  I would love to see it for much less also because I don't like to spend my money, hell if I could pirate it from a warez site I would, but.....  What price point were you expecting to see?  As far as it…
  • Does Oculus even have an employee that moderates this forum anymore?

Ask DaftnDirect if he'll sell you his Cable, you fit one of the scenerios he mentioned.  See if you can just get the cable.

Screw it, send one up to china and tell THEM to sell them, DMCA won't stop China's ability to flood the market.
