  • I just read that apparently there is a bug where picking up two shotgun shells with the gravity gloves only adds one shell to your inventory. You need to separate the shells enough so they don't get grabbed as a pair, so you can get them one at a ti…
  • Not at the moment.The Rift CV1 supported tracking 3 controllers (well, the SDK had 6 controllers listed, but only 3 ever worked).The VR Object system that allowed the extra controller hasn't been ported to the Rift-S. Considering how badly Oculus ha…

HL2, Penumbra Overture and Penumbra Black Plague.In HL2 every weapon had uniquely modeled haptics. You could feel every shell going in to the shotgun when you reloaded. The kick from the revolver knocked your hand back. Picking up s…

It can help you fly a jet fighter.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF6R1sJrWPkNote: Despite the movie being called Iron Eagle, they fly the F16 Falcon, not the F15 Eagle. (Quote) 
I used to play HL2 with a DK2 and a Novint Fa…
  • (Quote) A VR only game was a risk. As was continuing a game so long after the previous one. Just look at how Duke Nukem Forever went. Using Alyx as the protoganist had the advantages of being a major well known character (with a voice actor), but al…
  • Unfortunately they won't allow it, as it's a privacy issue. People freak out enough about having cameras on (or around) a headset that only Oculus has access to.If we had access to the cameras, it would be possible to do fiducial marker tracking, wh…
  • Do you mean they just aren't downloaded anymore, or aren't listed as you owning them? There's no way to log out of a Quest without doing a factory reset which wipes everything installed on it. So if you can log in it means the Quest is wiped and ne…
  • I never really noticed it during the earlier game chapters, but at the end the combat music got so loud I actually couldn't hear a manhack until it was right in my face. I went straight into settings and turned the music off.I think I didn't notice …
  • And done.Overall that was well worth the money. Fairly polished, but not perfect.However regardless of the flaws I found in it, what this has done for VR is great. So many sales, so many glowing reviews, maybe some non-VR gamers will start to take V…

You can carry machine gun magazines, the same way as the other guns.Grenades are annoying, especially when you realise the grenade launcher attachment just uses the normal hand grenades and not a custom ammo that is backpack compati…
  • If you can't run a cable to the PC, then you can't use oculus link (since it's a cable to the PC).You can do it with Virtual Desktop or ALVR though, they do streaming over WIFI to the Quest.In the latter case, internet speed only affects how long a …
  • USB3.1 Gen 2 have been known to be problematic. On my Asrock Taichi motherboard the single USB 3.1 Gen 2 port results in broken force feedback on the Rift (it happens delayed or turning on or off at the wrong time), but the USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports are f…

I had a feeling those would affect people.They've really turned an action shooter series with a little bit of scares into survival horror. I've got mixed feelings on that. On the one hand, that seems to be limiting the audience. I c…
  • Just to be explicit, it's not really just a HDMI cable. It's a proprietary HDMI and USB combo cable with a plug on one end (on the headset) that isn't made anymore. It's possible that the seller bought the Rift specifically to remove the (increasin…

I'm on the v15 PTC and both my CV1 and Rift-S are working great with Alyx. I haven't tried my Quest yet though.
  • I've just released an updated version of my Oculus Monitor tool.If anybody has the drifting thumbstick issue, it would be cool if you could download it at https://github.com/rajetic/OculusMonitor/releases/tag/v0.2.2 and tell me what the thumbstick x…
  • So now I'm on chapter 7.(Spoiler)

Yep, plus unlike the Oculus hardware surveys, the Steam survey is only given to a random selection of people, not everybody. I've read that it may be weighted to be more likely to select people with recent hardware changes. If Steam…
  • I haven't bothered searching yet, but is there a reason for covering your mouth with your hand? The latest patch fixed the pose for it, that's the only way I knew it was there. Does it do anything? You can also wear the respirator masks that are sca…

  • Oddly it's more of a VR Metro than the actual VR game by the Metro creators: Arktika.1. :)
  • You can get a list of games that are cross-buy here: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/quest/section/2335732183153590/
  • It's like a yoyo.Now the Rift-S has inverted. Only Aus, Japan, NZ and Taiwan have it.Europe is out of stock of the Go 32GB.
  • I think my problem with the Half Life series is that I really enjoyed the Black Mesa stuff. But after HL1 we're dealing with City 17 which I just don't find as interesting as a secret science facility.These kinds of settings (lots of exploring aband…

 Nope, standing. I just have a small area at the moment so I like to keep facing the same way.
  • It's in stock for Canada right now. The headsets have been going in and out of stock quite often. They are getting small numbers in which sell out fast.
  • They usually charge when they ship.
  • Deja vuhttps://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/81130/cant-accept-any-friends-in-oculus-home
  • Six hours later and the Rift-S is back in stock everywhere except Aus, Japan, NZ and Taiwan.Canada and USA have also gotten in some Quest 64GB and 128GB.
