VR Reverb G2

Post by AUBUISSON » Sun Dec 06, 2020 8:39 pm

I currently have an Oculus Rift-S VR headset. I ordered an HP “Reverb G2”. I would have liked to know how I should set the Revg2 in the setup, should I let Oculus Rift tick. Do I need any special software other than the headset software?

Bonjour .
J’ai en ce moment un casque VR Oculus Rift-S.J’ai commandé un HP « Reverb G2 ».J’aurais voulu savoir comment je dois régler le Revg2 dans le setup,dois-je laissé cocher Oculus Rift.Aurais-je besoin d’un logiciel spécial à part celui du casque?

Hi, sounds like we're in a similar place VR headset-wise. I too have a Rift S and have just got a Reverb G2.

Gathering all together in one place in the hope it'll help many more than just us, I've found these resources and their onward links helpful so far:

Condor 2 Manual
VR setup page: https://www.condorsoaring.com/manual_en ... vr-devices
Section headed "HTC Vive" *should* apply to all WMR headsets.

Various forum posts:
Revive Helper: easy tool for Revive (multiplayer & desktop shortcut): viewtopic.php?f=43&t=19133

Setting up WMR: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=19880

About VR headset: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=19320#p166543

Search the forums on "WMR", "Reverb" too, for example.

Finally, be aware that the end results may not be that satisfactory compared with your Rift S (except the resolution of the G2 which is amazing).

If you do get it running reliably and *with* MSAA please share how :)

Bonne chance!

I just got my G2 but cannot make it work with Revive 2.1.1

Anyone else had any luck? I've tried following all the protocols suggested including reinstalling various aspects, but when I try to Inject the Condor.exe I get a "Failed to create process" error and nothing more useful than that.

Other Revive titles work just fine through SteamVR, I just cannot get Inject to work.

I've had most luck with revive v1.9.1

I did read 1.9.2 should work but I found the folder structure didn't match that per the Condor Manual

I've also got the Revive Helper doing its thing. But haven't tried it with multiplayer yet.

The big downside for me is having to turn off MSAA in Condor 2 - the jagggies are terrible! However once work is done today I'll see if I can set that in the nVidia settings (not my preferred place but if it's the only option I'll give it a go).

good luck :)

I received my G2 today and also was able to run it with revive 1.9.1 (hadn't tried anything else), also had to disable MSAA to get it work. I've got Radeon rt5700xt.

Hello, did somebody manage to use Reverb with MSAA?

I tried to force MSAA from Nvidia but seems to have no effect

Most frustrating part is that with MSAA on in condor we do see a black screen, but the display "race in ..." still works

Hello. I am another Rift S user who now has a Reverb G2 and has discovered that Reverb G2 will not work in Condor.

Searching the forum for solutions to my Reverb G2 problem it appears the only option involves using software called Revive.

As a someone who struggles with even the simplest computer problems, I need to ask is the REVIVE software intended for use with the VIVE headset?

If so, will it work with the Reverb G2 without modifying the Revive program?

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 ( viewtopic.php?f=43&t=19133 ) which makes it seemeless to launch Condor 2.

Good luck.

Hi everybody using VR with Condor 2

I'm a noob in VR. I should like to know if I must buy that kind of hardware when my PC will be updated.

Now, I had read so much incomplete or confusing manners to be able to work this hardware, that I hesitate a lot to buy one.

Please, can someone or a team make a complete and illustrated and proved guide, step by step to start this hardware with Condor 2 and with their secondary soft.

Same Message for Oculus Quest 2.

Thank you

I'd like a proven step by step guide too like Xavier above. I feel like I've tried just about anything now with my g2 for condor, but can't make it work..

This is not really step by step - but maybe helpful anyway:


Condor 2 in VR is great! Especially with the HP Reverb G2! 8)
So its worth to get through this setup. :D
