Re: Pimax 5K VR head position

Pimax 5k user here, no such problem. Have you run the StreamVR room setup? Room-scale or standing only? What happens when you press the VR center button in Condor?

Re: VR Nausea - plea to devs!

I flew a long cross-country flight yesterday with Condor. Didn't get sick but had time to analyze why it feels wrong. You see your body in cockpit and hand on control stick which look real. In turbulence the virtual body and hand move relative to head while in real life they are still. This feels un...

Re: VR2 - default view

You can map VR reset to a joystick button. That's what I do. Sitting position changes on long flights so it's good to be able to reset it in flight.

Re: Future Request for VR - Internal internet Browser plus cockpit manipulation

X-Plane supports VR controllers fine so it's possible, but Condor has so few controls that they should all fit into HOTAS stick + throttle. VR controllers are not very practical to use in sims. The web page support seems quite out of scope. In real life you can't surf the web in cockpit anyway, unle...

Tracking works quite well with one base station. I flew accidentally with only one powered up for a while until I noticed.

Re: Pimax 5k/8K VR set

I got around 50fps with full FOV.

I have never used a Rift but I have Vive which technically about the same. Large FOV is really nice.
It's a bit distorted at the edges but you'll learn to ignore it quite soon. There are a lot of
comparison and review videos of Pimax on youtube.

Re: HTC Vive : Error initializing Direct3D

At the risk of highjacking drassaud's thread, can you run condor using the maximum (200 degree) FoV? What is performance/hardware requirements like compared to a vive, assuming you have or had a vive to compare with? Condor is very light on hardware. I have Geforce GTX 1060 and Condor runs fine wit...

Re: HTC Vive : Error initializing Direct3D

Using revive or straight oculus? Would be nice to hear of whats better about the Pimax.. Revive, it was a bit pain to set up but managed to do it with help from this thread. Pimax has much wider field of view than Vive. Vive is like scuba diving mask and Pimax is like large eyeglasses with some dis...

Re: VR Nausea - plea to devs!

I flew Condor in VR yesterday first time and I can confirm this. Turbulence does not feel right. I think the issue is that in Condor tubulence *rotates* head around the center position. In real life turbulence mostly causes vertical and horizontal forces to the aircraft, not rotational. Suggestion t...

Re: HTC Vive : Error initializing Direct3D

FYI got Condor working with Pimax. It's awesome.

Controllers were not working until I disabled support for them in Steam big picture mode settings.

Re: Pimax 5k/8K VR set

Has anyone tested Condor with Pimax yet? I haven't received mine yet, but expecting it to ship anytime soon.
Revive *should* work but I'd like to hear some first hand reports.

Re: Axis invert How to?

I asked this from devs a few months ago as our club's simulator is wired so that inverting is needed. Should be around 30 minutes of coding & testing, but looks like we need to modify the hardware.

Re: HTC Vive : Error initializing Direct3D

I understand this choice. Condor is made by 2 people in their spare time. Initially supporting only one device makes sense. Less complicated code and only one hardware device to test with. Revive does work if you follow the instruction. OpenVR supports Oculus Rift and other devices, Oculus API supp...

Re: HTC Vive : Error initializing Direct3D

I purchased Condor 2 yesterday and have the same issue. - Installed Condor - Installed Revive - Installed Oculus drivers (5 gigabytes, are they serious??) I've tried starting Condor from desktop icon and added it to steamvr but no help. Should Condor be in Revive's list? Do i need to register to Ocu...
