XCSoar PDA on Quest 2

I have put together some notes on how to get a working XCSoar “PDA” display working in Condor 2 VR. None of this is new, but hopefully this is all you need in one place. I have been using the Oculus Quest 2, but I would imagine other headsets can do a similar thing. The basis of the solution is to p...

have you tried 127.0.0.1 rather than the address on the local network (which I guess is something like 192.168.1.xxx)
Perfect, thanks! You learn something new every day!

PC XCSoar & Condor 2 - no data?

Hi all, I'm trying to link XCSoar and Condor 2, both applications running on the same PC. The instructions in the manual are for an external PDA device. I am failing miserably to get this to work. I have: Created COM6 in VSP3 - Port 4353 - IP address is the internal IPv4 for my PC as shown in Window...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

It looks like you are using a more powerful CPU now? Perhaps that is the reason? Ryan Hi Ryan, yes that could be the case. I upgraded from the 1600x because a) I fancied having a bash at upgrading a CPU and b) it has a much better single core power. I have tried both the 3060Ti and 1660Ti using thi...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Not sure if Quest 2 has had a recent software update, or Nvidia, or both, but my 16Gb RAM, 3500x CPU + 1660 Ti GPU combo is now nailed on 90Hz for Condor 2, only very occasionally falling back to 45 FPS ASW. Performance monitor on the headset shows approx 20% performance headroom. This is via the Re...

Re: Best VR Headset at this moment

The Quest 2 will run Condor 2 without Revive / Steam VR, but the experience is very poor (lots of stuttering, artifacts and low frame rate). Using the Quest 2 via Revive and Steam VR makes the experince a lot better, but yes, there is a performance overhead. The higher resolution and refresh rate of...

Re: Best VR Headset at this moment

Depends on your budget and how comfortable you are with fiddling with software etc. The Rift S is cheap and works with Condor straight out of the box. Quest 2 is better in terms of resolution / image quality, but currently you need to set a stack of software including Steam VR and Revive, to make it...

Re: VR Reverb G2

I have to use the Revive software to make Condor work properly with my Oculus Quest 2. No modification to the software was required. I would imagine it will work for your G2 too. I use the Revive helper tool ( https://www.condorsoaring.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=19133 ) which makes it seemeless...

I could not find posts re Revive Helper. Can you provide some detailed steps to use this?

Thanks a-lot,

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

Ryan, are you using a cable connection or virtual desktop?? Chris I primarily use Link for Condor, but have also used VD. Are you having trouble getting 72fps with these cards, or are you just trying to get it up to 90hz? Ryan If I try to get 72Hz, it gets locked down to 32. Attempts to get 90Hz de...

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

I’m using Oculus Rift CVT1 with 5 year old computer i7 and GeForce 970. It’s been good so far, but I’ve been looking into upgrade options. Until Condor supports SteamVR natively the only choice we have for VR upgrade is Oculus headsets. Hence big interest in Quest 2. I see you guys having lots of i...

OpenXR doesn’t yet support all headsets.

Let’s wait...
Hi Chris, genuine question, which headsets are lacking OpenXR support?

Re: Quest 2 Feedback

I'm curious here: Does turning off SMT improve the flatscreen FPS? I'm running 90hz, max detail in Condor and maximum resolution in Link settings and it's been super smooth (i5-8600 and RTX 2080 however). I'm guessing your GPU is just a bit underpowered. With Link it seems there some aspect that bo...

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...
