  • If you enjoy something then that's all that matters (providing it's legal of course :p ) Universe Sandbox 2 may not be a game (not tried it myself so can't vouch for how good or othewise it may be), but if the user is entertained by it, then it's …
  • Speaking from a Vive viewpoint, yeah the SDE effect is there and it's pretty noticeable. The graphics quality is also way below what most 'normal' games display. At this development stage, it's a tradeoff between realistic graphics and immersion, an…

This is a game I'm very tempted by too. It looks fantastic and just the sort of thing I'd really enjoy. It's confirmed as working under Revive, and I have no reason to doubt that it does. All my Oculus freebies, plus Dreadhalls (th…
  • Oculus is. Steam is on my D: drive. I installed Revive to my D: drive too, but have just uninstalled and reinstalled to the default location. I'm not sure it's a directory issue, or the games wouldn't be showing up at all in SteamVR, but I'll give i…

Already watching it. But thanks for the heads up :) Things I've tried so far... Downloaded the latest C++ 2015 from Microsoft. Deleted the old ones and installed these. Completely rebooting the Oculus runtime from the beta menu. Va…

I'm getting this too. Got a bit of unexpected free time today, so I'm going to have a play around and see if I can work out what I've done wrong. Will let you know if I find out what's causing it!

I sort of miss those days too. The days when you had to order a game by sending in a mail order form and then wait several weeks for it to arrive. Some of those boxes were amazing. I used to have shelves filled with PC game boxes. …

This is a fair point, and one which I agree with. It's not ready. But it's close enough to being ready to be taken seriously. And to be seriously f**king exciting. Even at this early stage, most of us who are lucky enough to actua…
  • Y'know... at the end of the day, all these arguments over which product is better doesn't matter one bit. Both units have plus and minus points. Got a Rift? Happy with it? Great. Fantastic. That's all that matters. Got a Vive? Happy with it? Grea…
  • Not having used Rift, I can't comment on whether it's more or less comfortable than the Vive headset. What I can say is that, for me, the Vive headset is very, very comfortable. I have weak neck muscles, but can easily wear it a couple of hours with…

Be careful if you download their player. A friend of mine, not me, no not at all, honest, downloaded it and had to spend a couple of hours getting rid of the malware it installed.
  • Some light source is a good idea, even if it's just the glow of your monitor screen. You can get disorientated pretty easily in VR. It's not too bad if you're seated as you know where you are, but if you're standing and/or moving around a lot, it's …
  • I agree that the lack of headphones on the Vive is a pain, but it's a pretty minor one. It's become second nature to me now to slip the headset most of the way on, then put on my phones, then pull the headset all the way down. Takes less than five s…
    in VIVE WAIT? Comment by notsram May 2016
  • By and large, they seem to be sticking to the estimates that they give out when you place an order. Some people have slipped through the net and waited a lot longer than they should, but I took a keen interest in the delivery stuff on Reddit before …

Yep, I'll give that a try next time I'm playing the game :) I know the game is never going to look as pretty as it does on a monitor, but even taking that into account, it looked awful. Yes, it was certainly immersive (or as immers…

Lol, this is why I didn't accept the offer to be a mod on this forum :P
  • I picked it up in the Humble sale a few days ago. On the Vive at least, I wasn't impressed. Yes, the immersion is fantastic, but the graphics are confusing and it's a bit hard to see upcoming corners at times. That said, I haven't fiddled with graph…
  • You may have a point! But I'm already frequenting these forums less than I used to now that I have my Vive. If/when a decent Vive forum springs up, you guys will probably see even less of me (Stop cheering in the background, V-Walker) :)

Yeah, we've had a couple of hot days in the UK this week (so that's summer over with), and even just sitting, your face feels warm with an HMD on. Playing Audioshield definitely makes your face sweat!
  • Good point. I'd forgotten Sony are probably bringing out a new PS4. I think this is a seriously bad move on their part though. People buy a console with the expectation that it will last for a long time. It's only just over two years since the PS4 w…

Yeah, if powerful PCs struggle, I'm not sure how impressive the PSVR titles will look. And graphics are a big selling point of console games. I'm sure the games will be good though. I'm willing to bet there will be at least one must…
  • Tried No Limits 2 on my Vive, but it would only run through the desktop theatre thingy. Even that was enough to make me feel queasy after one ride!

I have a feeling it may be PSVR. If it's any good at all, it will sell like hot cakes over the Christmas period.
  • You guys have a point about Rift being far easier to set up. But in a store environment, where everythng is already set up, I wonder how many customers will actually take that into consideration? As I've said before, I was worried right up until I …
  • I've found the main advantage of an SSD is actually booting up your PC. My PC is almost 3 years old, and whilst I've modified a few things, I've never reinstalled Windows (yeah, I know I probably should!). It's my experience that the longer you leav…

You're half right. I'm a good swimmer, but petrified of heights! *edit* And I actually turned it down because I'm a Vive owner, so pretty much only a guest on these forums. I feel a few of the more pro Oculus people on here would b…
  • I'm just waiting for the price of SSDs to drop a bit more. I currently have a SSD boot drive and a 4 TB hard disk. I try to keep the SSD as clear as possible. Maybe only one or two games on there at a time. The loading times really are much quicker.…

  • Starting to regret turning down being a mod. I want a taste of power!!!!! :p
  • Rift will struggle against Vive in retail, IMO. VR in itself is pretty damn cool, but when you have hand controllers too. Sorry, but playing games with an xbone controller just feels boring. Rift needs Touch ASAP if it wants to compete on a level pl…
