    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Glad that Danny got driver of the day. In a counter-intuitive statement I would also like to have voted for both max and Brendon for completely turning this race on its head.

    What classic games should be remade in VR?

    Tie fighter Vs x-wing Magic carpet Any god game / sim city (would be cool to see a minature world below you) Mass effect 1, 2 or 3 Just cause 2 Far cry 3 or 4

    @Cool Ben Yes, put about 10-15 hours in since I bought it at New year. On mobile at work and being lazy so can't type too much ... But here is my comments to a mate when I emailed him about this very thing last night ... it's genius and just what I wanted it to be, but it is also famously a bit shit for the first 2-3 hours until you get to grips with the controls. Add into the mix that there isn't any official support of Oculus Rift or its controllers so there is a stupid faff to get it working. However, after 2 or 3 games, and 2 or 3 hours, it all becomes second nature and when it finally does click - OMG! It's really really good.

    This is a good article on usb https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-roomscale-balancing-bandwidth-on-usb/ And the follow up is good too https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-roomscale-identifying-host-controllers/ These explain what is important when it comes to usb ... It's about the host controllers rather than ports.

    @Paulando I would have a read here. https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/wiki/requirements ... and also have a nosey at the pc build thread on this forum too.

    Yeah, probably not that many people overall if you take console sales into consideration. Was thinking more about the sim community. Would have thought that must be a fairly decent chunk of pc gamers ie People that think nothing of decent wheel/multi-screen setups. I agree i'm going to be waiting a long time. Maybe some kind soul will mod it ... Eventually.

    I wonder how many people didn't buy it because there was no VR (on pc anyway). I'm holding off until it's added.

    I am glad to hear that I'm not pregnant ... especially since I wasn't exactly sure who the mother was!

    I've just received an email from Oculus to have a chance of participating in an Oculus User Research study in London, on Tue 24th Oct and get £70 Amazon vouchers. I live too far away otherwise I would jump at the chance. I don't know if the survey is transferable or not but I'll pop the survey link below on the off chance that someone here might be interested and may benefit for the 70 quid. Link for the survey If you are jammy enough to get picked, I would love to hear what they were asking about.

    Steam

    I have received a steam voucher 50% off Civilization VI Digital Deluxe if anyone is interested. Valid until 30/10. Happy to give it away, PM if interested.
  11. Using it on PC. I used the PC control panel to Max gain at 100% then in game I play, Raw, 100,60,50,50. Wasn't any good on F1 cars but great on everything else so far. Especially the ginetta series.

    Ah, unlikely to that Nvidia thing then. Have you read through these blog entries,I found them useful https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-roomscale-tips-for-setting-up-a-killer-vr-room/ https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-roomscale-balancing-bandwidth-on-usb/ https://www.oculus.com/blog/oculus-roomscale-identifying-host-controllers/ Personally, I prefer the cameras high up on the ceiling. I don't think you are going to have a good experience with them on the floor. Try using this tool as it shows you where the bounds of the camera are and might help show you some dead spots.

    There was something about disabling the motherboard GPU ... Nvidia optimus comes up loads in the forums. Try disabling that.

    Valve - Soon Shipping Games Again

    Valve are supposed to be making 3 VR games - I am hoping that we might start to hear something (small) about them at the Dev Days. (Going to be a good VR news week, between Oculus Connect 4 and Valve Dev Days right beside each other). Given the negative response to that DOTA trading card game and the potential news about those 3 VR games ... I wonder if the HL:E3 stuff is a reaction to that ... ie yes there are 3 VR games but they need to set peoples expectations that it isn't going to be HL3 so they are ready when they hear the news. Or similarly, it would be hard to launch those games with people asking about HL3 non-stop.

    No VR - confirmed by Lee Mather. https://www.vrfocus.com/2017/08/codemasters-holding-back-on-vr-for-formula-1-title/ At least I know that there is no point buying this now rather than supporting them and holding out to see if there would be a VR patch or DLC. Really disappointed by this but at least I have saved some money. Don't get the "that's a lot of information the player would have to process" comment at all. In pCars I simply remove all the OSD stuff except a small map at the very edge of my periphery which I tend to ignore anyway.
