(Image) (Quote) Yea and just to be clear, I'm not talking about anyone on this board except possibly someone who has been recently banned a couple of times. There were some seriously pious Valve fans on Reddit that were in full da…
  • I spent a lot of time evaluating my set of knuckles that I had(I sold the unit). I was fortunate to get a set that worked nearly flawlessly. I did discover toward the end that I didn't get a consistent click in one direction but it registered the pr…

That was the first thing I went do after watching the streamers play it. It really makes you appreciate the Index controllers capability but also hopeful that more games will support the grab function.

Seems weird that Oculus Cloud Saves would cause issues with Steam cloud saves. It's probably trying to upload your local saves from the Oculus Version. You could probably just move them to a different folder or something. 
  • (Quote) Dead Effect 2 was one that I tried and was really impressed with. Everything looked crisp and it was one that was more immersive than CV1. Arizona Sunshine was another (though performance wasn't great). I was also finally able to go back thr…

That's now in line with my opinion of the two. CV1 speakers are great but I slightly preferred the Index speakers overall when I had them in the proper place. Very active games would sometimes cause my Index speakers to move and tha…
  • (Quote) Yea pretty much. Home is a more polished experience while SteamVR has a lot of nice features that are harder to use. The desktop functionality in SteamVR is a joke and I've never had any luck using it, even with the Valve Index but I think i…

Yea it seem that way. Speaking of software, if you're looking at washed out colors in your index, there's a fix earlier in this thread with forcing SteamVR to validate files or something like that. Fixed the colors for a lo…

Yea that's what I'm thinking. This thing sure seems to have a lot of defective units. 
  • Wow...I never saw anything like that and I analyzed every millimeter of my screen while playing. It must have been too subtle for me to see if it was there. It says turning the head makes it visible in that thread, how so? If you look left or right …

Ah sweet, I haven't seen the individual packaging. Not as grandiose as the total kit but still pretty cool. 
  • I'm probably going to re-buy one and hope the replacement has less glare. I've seen on reddit that Valve sent them replacements and it had less for them. I'll probably wait a few weeks and let the old stock clear out. Sucks though with Valve selling…
  • Nice impressions Rune. I pretty much agree with all of that though I did notice the larger FoV of the Index especially when going back and forth.  With the knuckles controller, it took me a few days of messing with my hand positioning to find a spo…

Yea I was just throwing out my experience with it. There's always the possibility that one of Evileyes lenses has a flaw and it's messing with his eye. Hopefully nothing serious!
  • Eye problems are a definite cause for concern and should be taken seriously.  I used my Index for several hours at a time and had no eye strain. It was less strain than my O+ as the O+ sometimes makes my eyelids twitch after 6+ hours (monitors do t…

Yea I think you need the HMD connected. You can set them to turn off when you close SteamVR in the settings. It works good except when power is interrupted. Then they come back on.   :| I think it's in Steam VR Settings > Base …

In my case, I gave her nothing. We have split finances for personal spending. She spends hers how she wants and I spend mine. I'm actually kind of in the doghouse for selling it though as she loved it. I told her to use her own mon…

Except there's another layer with more parts than the first! I'm still wondering what the heck Valve has in store for the passthrough/AR cameras. They still aren't activated, officially anyway. 
  • (Quote) 
Yea that sounds like a bad panel. I experienced nothing like that.  (Quote) It's disconcerting to say the least.  In another curve ball life has thrown me,  I reluctantly sold my Index. :D A friend made me an offer I couldn't refu…
  • (Quote) 
Yep, it's the main reason I kept the kit. I would have sent it back even with my wife loving it if it weren't for the tracking. I went back to my Odyssey with the WMR controllers after using my Index and I was like man fuck this lol…
  • (Quote) 
Yea for me it's larger but it's not a wow larger because you can see the edges of the panels when you increase it to the max which I find quite distracting. I enjoy the headset more when I back the Eye relief off until the edges are…

 Well, my opinion hasn't changed much after using it for a couple of weeks so this will probably be the last post on my impressions of it but I'll sum up some things one more time.   It's kind of frustrating for me that there's so …
  • Yea perhaps that's why I haven't had all the problems I see people posting. I've been auto updating on the SteamVR beta since before I had the Index. I don't have any problems with mine on the software side. 
  • Good stuff. Still looking forward to this!
  • Reading the reviews bums me out. It looked like it had potential. Hopefully they can spice it up with some patches.

Lol yea, I didn't' realize it either. I had some actual fear creep in and was like, oh shit what am I about to get into lol. I really loved the game.

Yea, the GTX 1080 is enough to run the Index in most games at 100% at 80hz which is 2016x2240 resolution.

Beyond 80 hz though the pain starts lol and you'll have to live in Motion Smoothing or come down on …

Well, it's not so much a deal breaker to me as it's more the principle of something that I think shouldn't exist in a $1k headset kit. I mean The HMD is $499 or something like that and it does have a lot of pros, especially the audi…
  • Well, I've been overruled lol. My wife wanted to try the Index so I let her this morning. While she was halfway through I told her that I was returning it. She took the headset off and goes why would you do that? This one is much better than your ot…
  • (Quote) 
Yep, tells you all you need to know about how many people are returning. I submitted my return request today. We'll see how long it takes to get a response. Considering these things are selling for $16-1700 unopened on ebay I may ju…
