Re: OpenXR Now That Oculus Requires Facebook Account?

VR is the future for Condor and an Open VR solution makes the most sense, especially as even the current Oculus headsets (Quest 2) need to use the Revive / Steam VR route to make them playable. Hi Chris How does Quest 2 require Steam or Revive to make Condor playable ? Link doesn''t use Steam . Wha...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

2. I am now using the following procedure for Condor2 on Quest2: On the PC: • launch Steam then go to the left lower corner of the STEAM Welcome page and select: Add a Game, then "add a game not STEAM". Select the CONDOR2 program. • Go to Oculus Settings > General and Enable Unknown Sources • Run S...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Running some more tests and I am convinced (for my PC at least) is that Condor 2 is single threaded and that the performance issue is a CPU one. Running C2 in non-VR mode (as it's easier to watch Task Manager) and I get the following: https://i.imgur.com/8v7cHfe.png Memory and GPU running at only 30...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Where can I find this SS (supersampling) setting that I see in several postings above? I cannot find it in the Oculus Link PC app nor in the Quest2 settings. Supersampling is in the Oculus PC tool, in the Devices menu. Click on the "Quest 2 and touch" image and then select "Graphics Preferences". T...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Hi Pat, I use one of these and no issues:

Anker PowerLine+ USB-C to USB 3.0 cable

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01M5GMZ6X/

I bought it after seeing it recommended elsewhere. Getting a min of 1.2mbs on the test.

Good luck.

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Thanks Ryan, really useful, especially as I was eyeing up a 5700 XT for my other PC! My 15% CPU utilisation figure would match with one core being run at 100% and the rest twiddling their thumbs? I think as a working assumption, Condor 2 is probably only single threaded and as a 32bit application, i...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Have played with various monitoring tools, both the “performance HUD” on Oculus and a GPU utilisation logger, I am none the wiser as to why only about 45 FPS is being achieved on my Quest 2 set up? The Oculus HUD tool shows a rock stead 90Hz and 80% performance headroom in the Steam (or indeed Oculu...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Something I have noticed since the 90Hz mode has been released. My GTX 1060 (and indeed GTX970) which happily drove a Rift S at 80Hz, can only drive a Quest 2 at 60ish FPS peak. Given the increase in resolution, that is perhaps not suprising. However the Quest 2 seems to go into the reduced frame ra...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

FYI there is an update now available for Oculus PC SW and Quest 2 SW which gives 90hz and oversampling settings (configured from the Oculus PC SW / Device settings). Only had a brief play but seems to work, though it will require more powerful graphics cards that original Condor 2 on Rift. Anyone el...

Re: Flying the Libelle

In real life, my Libelle is left for dust by most other gliders. This has been simulated very well when I fly in Condor...... Seriously, IRL I would not thermal a Libelle below 45kts, so that might be the issue re climb? The Libelle communicates very clearly where the lift is, which helps the to cen...

Re: OpenXR Now That Oculus Requires Facebook Account?

I fully support this request, though have no idea how much work is required. VR is the future for Condor and an Open VR solution makes the most sense, especially as even the curent Oculus headsets (Quest 2) need to use the Revive / Steam VR route to make them playable.

Pretty please....
