  • (Quote) Yep, you're right, creep is there, just no run and jump. I notice in the user_keys_default.vcfg there are provisions for jump and sprint (the usual shift and space keys), wonder if these can be enabled for controller inputs, or if there's a…
  • You got me... I forgive myself for forgetting what date it is cos you know, all the damn days are merging into one!
  • I think I get put off games at the early stage and it takes me a while to revisit them and find that they're pretty good after all. I remember I was put off Bioshock the first time I played it because you couldn't get killed... you just respawned i…
  • I suggest that posters who want to be angry try and be constructively angry when creating a thread. Responses to angry posts, whether the OPs are drive-by's or otherwise, be avoided unless you're asking for more details or offering help in some way.…
  • I think that it's very possibly a USB related issue as that was hinted at in the OP's first post. Posting specs is very important particularly the USB hub manufacturer and driver details, that's the MB hub or the expansion card hub, whatever is bein…
  • Just tidied up my self haircut and now looking reasonably ok if I say so myself, also practicing my barbershop small-talk. going anywhere nice this year sir? you taking the f*cking mick?
  • OK enough. I asked that you all discuss nicely but straight afterwards, personal insults. The forum rules are not difficult to understand and yet the words idiot, childish, it, being used to describe posters get used without seeming to care. Priva…
  • I'm not too surprised about Steam discussions in this thread... or Index discussions in any thread really, Rifts and Vives (and now Index's) were/are the only 2 headsets that could really be described as mainstream consumer PCVR competitors, others …
  • (Quote) 

I made a list in another thread that had the games that work and the games that don't. Basically there's no special mapping needed, just a static soundstage when system default is selected as the audio output. I'll post a l…
  • I should clarify, I share no information that affects my security or privacy, as that's what's at the heart of this. If you think that times that I'm logged in, or meta data about the device I'm using, is a security or privacy concern then I can't …
  • (Quote) I thought CV1 was good directionally until I switched back to surround speakers. I realised how much was being interpreted by either seeing where the sound is coming from or by moving your head to fill the information gap... what I mean is y…
  • Well directional sound shouldn't get any better than when using surround speakers... they're the perfect sound platform, provided the correct sound information is there. I don't want to keep using Fallout as an example but the soundscape is perfect…
  • hmmm just played through the first couple scenes. I may have an unpopular opinion but my feelings are mixed. It's probably too early to have an opinion maybe but movement seems a bit clunky. I've set it to smooth movement with the joystick which i…
  • Friends need Facebook accounts to interact with each other, visiting homes of people who are friends is interacting with friends... which need a Facebook account. Requesting friends and accepting friends needs a Facebook account.. it all comes down …
  • Half-Life: Alyx is a Windows only game, but more importantly the Oculus Rift software (which is what you'd be using with Link) only supports Windows, so yes, Boot Camp would be necessary for VR on a Mac. I think you'll need to search the forum for …
  • An electronics device's warranty is provided by the manufacturer, in this case Oculus, regardless of whether it's been bought from Oculus or from an authorized dealer such as Amazon. The only Amazon warranties that I'm aware of are on Amazon branded…
  • As Nunyabinez says, Quest games and apps are installed on the Quest headset, they're the games that show up in the Quest's store while using that headset, no PC is required. Then there are Rift games and apps, they show up in the Oculus PC app or o…
  • On the plus side, I managed to get toilet roll today, now I can throw away the newspapers.
  • Same here. All non-essential shops must close tonight and police have powers to enforce it. No more than 2 people together outside of the home, family member only and for 1 exercise per day. Only other trips outside of the house are for essentials o…
  • (Quote) I'm using Corsair LINK to control fans, pump and pump LED colour. It can be configures to trigger events, programs or bat files for example so getting remote alarms via text is even possible. I got it with my Corsair AIO cooler so not sure …
  • I'm in the same position Luciferous... pre-loaded but away from home with my PC but not my Rift, that was a mistake! Will be getting into it on Thursday so I'll probably avoid this thread until then in case there are any spoilers.
  • @Blackpool_ no-one is going to close this thread or any other because of the topic or because of what any single person posts. Very occasionally, threads here get closed if too many people find it difficult to follow the forum rules regarding behavi…
  • There have been reports of problems with Afterburner and Oculus for some time (although not often)… maybe just some versions but it happens. I've mentioned in other threads I really recommend not installing graphics accelerator/utility programs. Nvi…
  • That's pretty incredible, Half-Life has more pull than ever... perhaps Valve will realise it's worth putting a title out in the series again, before another 12 years is up.
  • Valve want to sell software and maintain their position as the primary vendors of software for as much and as varied a range of PC hardware and PC peripherals as they possibly can, less they risk losing that position, built up over many years. I th…
  • (Quote) everyone takes a virtual 2 metres step back
  • Yep, pre-loading.... I forgot you have to manually start the pre-load!
  • Be sensible about things though, going outside isn't a problem if you're staying away from other people... if you're not touching things other people touch. Dogs should still be walked, groceries should still be bought (washing your hands afterwards…
  • I’d go with the advice of stay at home if self isolating, for those who aren’t, social distancing is the thing which doesn’t exclude going outside... 1.5m separation, no cafes or bars etc Even sitting in the garden is good enough for me after a few…
  • I posted in another thread that I didn't think Steam surveys would be very meaningful for the next few months. Even without the problems of supplying new VR headsets, people are busy with a variety of things I think. From my own point of view I see…
