  • I was watching the live stream of ObsidianAnt. The servers died when the entire expedition tried to do the first jump at the same time.
  • LZoltowski said: How can you buy something when it's DEAD. The food industry is pretty heavily based on buying dead things.
  • You don't need the tray tool for SS changes, Elite has that option built in to its quality settings menu as HMD Image Quality.
  • It depends on the game. Some games on steam only support SteamVR, so you can't run them directly. Others give you the option to pick the runtime to use somewhere (like right kick on the game list, or in properties. There's a program called OpenC…
  • KlodsBrik said: @Techy111 can I order a "VR is alive and thriving, humanity is doomed" T-Shirt  from you? That would be this one: Sadly not available any more, it was a kickstarter reward.
  • I prefer my Sixense "VR Pioneer" shirt.
  • It's been quite a few months since I've loaded up Elite, I haven't seen any of the new stuff from the last update. Damn, even more controls to bind. I'm thinking of adding the gear shifter from my G27 to my controls. That gives me 8 more buttons, a …
  • Which Go program did you try it with? Oculus Gallery supports png panoramas (just tested it). You have to change the mode from 2d to 3d when you open them (I think you can use a certain filename standard to tell it to be 360). Oculus 360 Photos …
  • Found my display port to dvi adapter. Back to two monitors! I really need to buy a new one or two, but I'm very fussy about monitors. Plus, in the same mess of cables as the adapter I found a 4.6m (15ft) usb2 extension cable. Where the hell d…
  • Luciferous said: I miss those early days.   I don't miss the months looking at order spreadsheets trying to guess delivery estimates. I much prefer the current 2-3 day delivery from hong kong to aus.
  • MSI 2080TI Gaming X Trio plugged in and drivers installing. Damn it's big. I'll need to remove it if I ever want to change sata cables. It also uses 3 power cables (2 x 8 pin and 1 x 6 pin). At the moment I'm down a monitor. I've been runni…
  • LZoltowski said: kojack said: Techy111 said: @kojack did you get a TI in the end mate ??? There have been many fun things since last week with stock changing status and stuff that I won't go over here. But... I got an em…
  • KNP54 said: Maybe it has to do with the fact that I'm not using my facebook account to log in but rather a "normal" account which was registered when I bought the DK2? (before Oculus was bought by facebook) I use my account from the DK1 …
  • MAC_MAN86 said: Did you Block non-SSE4.2 CPUs? It is a simple question that can be answered. Thank you. Err... you've been complaining about SSE4.2 since march 2017, I'm pretty sure you already have the answer you need.
  • Techy111 said: @kojack did you get a TI in the end mate ??? There have been many fun things since last week with stock changing status and stuff that I won't go over here. But... I got an email yesterday saying there's an MSI Gaming X Tri…
  • Google Earth isn't available for the Go. Do you mean EarthView3D? It's developers disabled it, there's no way to use it anymore but they keep it on the store for some reason (if you check the update history the devs say it doesn't work anymore).
  • I've seen some more Cosmos controller pics. It's button arrangement (A,X on the bottom) matches Touch. So Pimax is the odd one out. But, the Cosmos controller has an extra button it seems, above the trigger. Looks like an gamepad style trigger/…
  • It may have been caught by the spam filter for containing a url or some keyword it didn't like. Members start off as unverified. In this state they can post fine, but the spam filter keeps an eye on them, until they pass some conditions. I've ver…
  • Pimax may be showing their controllers. Maybe. So far all they have is this prototype image: https://uploadvr.com/ces-2019-pimax-controllers/ Oh look, another Touch clone. Well, there's problems with that design: - Missing 2 buttons that …
  • Foveated rendering certainly doesn't need RTX. Even the Go can currently do it. Back in the Geforce 900 series they introduced Multi Res Shading. This technique let you render parts of the screen at different resolutions. As far as I can tell, i…
  • Dirt Rally came out 6 months before Touch was available. The last update to it was 2 months before Touch. It's pretty fun on a G27 wheel.
  • Looks like it's not very wide support. Out of 400 models of Freesync monitors that Nvidia tested, only 12 work with their new support. The models that work are listed here: https://gadgets.ndtv.com/laptops/news/nvidia-brings-g-sync-support-to-a-do…
  • The Cosmos is going to have RGB panels and HTC's "sharpest screen yet". Dev kits are due early this year, more news on consumer release later this year. From the Cosmos website: "The virtual universe is always expanding; VIVE Cosmos was design…
  • I edited in a better pic of the Cosmos. Hmm, those controllers are VERY Quest like. Top ring, thumbstick, same buttons on top in the same position as Quest, side analog triggers. I wonder if they use AA batteries behind a magnetic cover, or are us…
  • The Disney / Audi thing has some interesting aspects. It makes the VR world match your car's movements. Turning, accelerating, etc are done in VR too, so you shouldn't get motion sickness (real and virtual movement match). It also customises the ex…
  • Not exactly news so I won't edit it in the op, but here's some Quest stuff: "Oculus Quest is the savior VR needs" https://mashable.com/article/oculus-quest-vr-future-ces-2019/?europe=true&utm_cid=mash-com-Tw-main-link#KwC6m1ATNmqf
  • The Cosmos controllers appear to use thumbsticks.
  • One potential problem is we already see people having problems with putting more than one sensor onto a single usb controller. People are buying usb cards that have multiple controllers and then making sure each sensor is on a different one. With j…
  • From that video, apparently every time the pimax software updates it breaks oculus software you have installed, requiring a repair or reinstall. Ouch.
  • I wound assume the point of a 8 foot extension cable is to run the headset only. If you have sensors plugged in too then pulling on the headset cable could move your sensors.
