    So doing it without the PS4 at all..... It’s seems you have to power up the PSVR breakout box with the headset connected to it properly in order for the PSVR headset to power up. Once it’s powered up you can then unplug the PSVR headset’s HDMI lead from the FRONT of the Breakout box and plug it into the Switch dock. The PSVR headset will turn off. Plug the Breakout box into the TV using the Breakout Box’s FRONT HDMI connector and then power the headset on again. Job done! However it seems that after a certain amount of time, if the PSVR headset goes off it won’t turn on again without following the above steps from the beginning. Weird!

    Just tried hooking it up without the PS4 at all and you’re right! Its worked! As long as the HDMI lead connector on the FRONT of the breakout box is hooked up to the TV then it’s fine and the PSVR headset powers up. Edit - Now tried it again just to be sure and it hasn’t worked. WTF!?!?!? Not sure what’s going on here!

    Really?!?!? How? You have to have the PSVR attached to the Breakout box and the PS4 itself or the headset doesn’t even turn on! You also have to have certain leads plugged in otherwise you just get warnings that HDMI leads are not connected when viewing through the headset. Once it’s set up as normal though you just Switch the 2 leads over and it works. Then when it’s already working you can unplug leads from the PSVR breakout box and it will continue to work......but there’s not really any reason to do that!

    That Vid totally over complicates things! All you need to do is swap 2 leads that are already plugged in over! Also, as I was saying, if there’s no HDMI lead plugged into the “HDMI PS4” connector when setting up then you’ll just get a screen warning of no HDMI connected on the PSVR headset.

    I have a V2 headset. Just to clarify as Partious’ instructions are a bit misleading...... Before you begin you need to have the PSVR and PS4 set up and powered on and connected to the TV as normal. If you don’t have a lead plugged into the “HDMI PS4” connection on the back of the PSVR breakout box then you will just get a screen warning that there is no HDMI lead plugged in, when viewing through the PSVR headset. Set up as described in my previous post. You don’t need an extra HDMI lead or anything as Partious implies (at least not on V2). Just unplug the Headset HDMI lead on the FRONT of the breakout box and plug it into the HDMI connector on the Switch dock. Unplug the lead from the “HDMI TV” connector on the BACK of the PSVR breakout box and plug into the HDMI connector on the FRONT of the PSVR breakout box. Re-power on the headset. Job done! Hope that helps!

    Ok got this up and running. Here’s how...... 1. Put your Switch in its dock. Ideally you want to have it already running Zelda in VR mode when doing so. (Pause the game itself - options - toy con VR - on. 2. Set up your PS4 and PSVR as normal and turn them on. 3. Unplug the HDMI lead that goes from the PSVR HEADSET to the FRONT of the PSVR breakout box, leaving the other cable running from the headset to the front of the breakout box plugged in. Take the lead you’ve unplugged and plug it into the HDMI connection on the Switch dock. 4. Unplug the HDMI cable, on the back of the PSVR breakout box that goes FROM the breakout box to the TV. Now plug this lead into the HDMI output on the FRONT of the PSVR breakout box, with the other end still connected to the TV itself. 5. Sit back and enjoy playing Zelda BOTW in 3D on PSVR. Nice!

    Tried the above.......you can play the Switch, just as you can play any other stuff on PSVR when it’s hooked up that way. No idea how you would play Switch VR stuff properly on PSVR though or if that’s even possible?

    I’m guessing it’s just a case of running the HDMI Out of the Switch dock into the HDMI In of the PSVR breakout box. Obviously still have to have the PS4 powered on and connected to the PSVR headset as normal. Then just Turn VR on via the in game options menu on Zelda itself and.......job done! I’ll give it a go in a minute and report back.
  9. I hope so! It’s weird, i now should be 2nd or 3rd on the leaderboards for the first track. I’m not even listed on the “near me” or “top” leaderboards though. Yet on the “friends” leaderboard my fastest lap time has updated each time I play (currently 1:20.16), however my total time hasn’t and is showing 3:02.87, which just seems to be a random time picked out of thin air! I’m not showing up on quite a few of the other boards too even though I set times over 10hrs ago.
  10. @CrashedAlex Any idea what’s going on with the Scoreboards? Got a few decent times now only for them to not register on the leaderboards or stranger still, I seem to have been given a random time! For example on the first Pursuit I took the car down with 48secs on the clock but the game then gave me the time of 53secs!?!?!? Then on the scoreboard screen itself it registered my time as 1:05, 1 second faster than the previous time i’d set. On some of the leaderboards I don’t show up at all. :/
  11. Fired this up for a quick go and ended up playing through the whole of the first car class! Burnout 2 is one of my fav racing games of all time and this doesn’t disappoint. What’s with the scoreboards though? Got a total time of something like 2:43mins on the first race. Fastest Lap 1:21mins. That should put me top 10 on PS4 for that track currently. However my total time says 3:18mins!?!?!?

    Bought Riptide GP Renegade years ago on PS4 and also bought it on Switch more recently. It’s a good game. It’s by the folk that did Hydro Thunder on 360, which was awesome. Beach Buggy Racing is pretty good too which is by the same team.

    Nice setup! It only takes about 5mins to plug it all in from scratch once you know what goes where! On the back of the PSVR breakout box there is a socket for power supply, an HDMI input to receive the signal from the PS4, an HDMI output to send the signal to the TV and a USB OUT that plugs into the USB IN of the PS4. The VR headset then plugs into 2 inputs on the front of the PSVR breakout box via a single lead that splits into two at the end, which obviously comes from the headset itself. You then plug your headphones into the VR headset. The camera just plugs directly into the PS4 separately. Job done!

    Trials Rising

    I'd say the best advice is to watch the CPU Ghost rider that's in the background and just try to copy what it's doing and figure out why it works. There is a bit of leeway with the personal style you play with, but it's basically all about the timing and positioning of how you load the suspension of the bike with your rider, and the way you hit the platforms with the bike itself, so that you carry momentum over the obstacles. Sounds easy but it's really not, which is what makes Trials one of the best games I've ever played. Easy to pick up, hard to master! :)
