Hey all, I'm just getting into the world of the OR, and am enjoying my
DK1 unit. I noticed that a lot of the procedures for setup, etc have
changed ...It all works great out of the box (Coaster, Unity Demo, etc).
However, I am running firmware .17, a...
I just received Oculus Rift Development Kit 2 (DK2)
head-mounted-display. Since I have a pretty good idea how the positional
head tracking works, my first question upon unboxing DK2 was “Where the
infrared LEDs at??”So I pointed Kinect 2′s infrared c...

Hello fellow Rifters,As I am just waiting for my DK2 to arrive I want to
be well prepared as it hits my doormat! In the DK2 QuickStart Guide I
found the following note:To minimize cable thickness, each DK2 cable is
individually calibrated for maximu...
I may be having a bit of a thicky moment, but I've been trying to work
out why in-game FPS matters when we have timewarp. As an example, in
Prepar3D 33 fps is a very good framerate, and it's where I have the sim
vsync-locked to. It's possible to get ...
Since the DK2 shows up as a generic monitor (in Device Manager) when in
extend mode, isn't it possible to write a basic monitor driver telling
it to rotate to 1920x1080 instead?I have no idea how to do it, but since
you can do it through Nvidia/Amd c...
I'm concerned that wearing my glasses whilst using the Rift is likely to
result in some lens-on-lens action which will scratch one or both; I'm
considering using some phone-screen-protection film I have laying around
and cutting it to size for the Ri...
This is getting very weird, because Oculus VR has always talked about
transparencyIn addition, I have my TP demo on hold because I can't test
it on the DK2 because a lot of entuthiasts and resellers received a
Development Kit 2 firstI understand that...
Is anyone aware whether or not HL2 will run in VR mode with the DK2? I
don't mind that it doesn't have tracking support, but I was curious if
it would run at all. My DK2 is due on Thursday and I really was looking
forward to giving half life another ...
Late PM order here. What coping strategies are you all using to deal
with the wait?I try to stay distracted as much as possible with UE4 and
learning Blender. Luckily I have a DK1 which provides some relief, but
others may not be so lucky!I built thi...
Hello! Obviously there is a some problem with the orders during this
period of time (19 Mar 9:45am - 10am PDT). Because the people who
ordered earlier (literally a few minutes) and moreover people who bought
after 10am also already received their ord...
My machine is aging, and with my shiny new DK2, I figure now's a good
time for a rebuild... gotta be able to play E:D and Bioshock Infinite
(via vorpx) at 75Hz I'm planning to keep my existing ssd,hdd,optical
drive,chassis,and (new) psu.Here's my cu...
When I read the review for "into the storm" rift experience and how the
reviewer said "at the end it almost felt depressing to come out to the
real world. My only thoughts were when will I go into this realm again.
I thought of it while I sipped my c...
I'm curious to picture how our eyes would look if we could see them as
they are rifting?They are obviously not crossed as this would cause
damage after extended use. But even if straight on, I'm sure there would
be something a bit "thousand yard star...
Didn't know if its already been posted, but the BBC setup a live stream

It's kind of hard to explain but it's only on the inside of the right
eye (medial.) If I'm still , it's fine. If I move with any decent speed
it creates sort of like a water type ripple only in the area. The
strange this is I installed the sdk and tr...
HI All, Sorry for gross ignorance if this has been answered or is
otherwise a stupid question. I wanted to know why there are so many
issues when the game is dropping down below 75fps (Juddering / Tearing
in right eye). I haven't played a lot with th...
I'd like to collect some high res photos of what you see through the
lens. Part of it is troubleshooting for me, I need to compare what a
working device sees so I know I'm not crazy.Plus, its cool.Ill go

Correct me if i am wrong, but its a full HD panel, and the output image
is displayed twice on it, side by side.Would it not be better to set the

A long time ago I seem to remember some companies producing concepts for
connecting a desktop graphics card to a laptop using an external
housing. These never came to anything as far as I know (not sure why,
perhaps there was no suitable data connect...
Hi all, first time user of the Oculus Rift, and so excited to get the
DK2.My enquiry: Anyone of ya'll encounter 3D Objects "sticking to your
head like a sticky tape then quickly let go" when you get too close to
it?For example, i refer to the DK2 Dem...
Just announced via Twitter / Blog. Couldn't see a post about it, so
thought I'd create a thread. So... who's

air travel would be too much for me, luckily it seems that many of the
I just got the Oculus 2 today and installed the runtime and the other
stuff it asked me to install. I can run the configuration utility demo
scene fine. The Tuscany demo also works for me, but every other
demo/game I have DLed is not working. By "not...
