Re: Any throttle recommendations?

I have the T master Throttle which coincidentally I bought to replace a X52 Throttle. It's a value for money piece of kit and it has served me well. Probably the CH products are easier to operate and better laid out and better made though 50% more expensive. What I do miss is the easy to program Sai...

Re: VR hints and tips

I downloaded the MIgoto 17.1 file, I was expecting an executable file which you would install and then have option menus, but it just seems to be a collection of files, presumably to be copied somewhere. I think it is the background shimmering and not being able to glance at the instruments almost u...

Re: VR hints and tips

First off. Is there any way to get the instruments into proper focus? zoom in and they are clear enough, but otherwise even with glasses on they seem blurred and I find this rather distracting.

Second. Is it just me or is spotting seriously more difficult in VR?

Re: VR

Well even without No 1 son I managed to (largely) sort things on Tuesday afternoon. It seems it was a Firmware problem (whatever that is). Had to go down the pub Tuesday evening and was out all day Wednesday and to day I am of to Scotland for a few days. So the fine tuning will have to wait. This al...

Re: VR

Just run the Steam VR evaluator. It says YES!
Average quality 7.2 (High)
Frames below 90 fps - zero
Recommended for high quality VR

I may have to wait until No 1 Son comes home for crimbo to sort me out (well my pc that is)

Re: VR

I do have such an icon. Getting desperate now. reading Prangsters post. Do I need to plug in all three usb's? I don't think I will use the controllers Also I now think the problem is in the connection of the HDMI cable. Just a thought if the monitor and the rift have to be connected direct to the GP...

Ok,

I'll give it a go and I hope it works, though I am baffled as to why it isn't included in the installation download which I installed

Re: VR

I already had steam, just had to enable the steam vr…...not that that did any good.

Why would I need Oculus home? This appears to be a piece of software for looking round houses. It's free, but as we know in the world of the internet, if it's free, you are the product.

Re: VR thoughts

Yes Tiger RAF Ops... The only thing more irresistible would be a Morrisons Pigs in Blankets bread roll.( Or maybe for you, Chips/Mayo/Zot Lager.)
