Found thin reindeer hide in the local crafts shop…
I, for one, cannot wait to see a photo of the Varjo Aero on a reindeer…
Wait… Does a reindeer steak count…?
So, how about trying a new type of shape, with more surface area for tape?
And slightly arced to conform with the halo strap…
What about small tabs on the top to wrap over the strap so that it kinda hangs on it? Could be thin enough they shouldn’t touch your head.
Not a bad idea.
Problem is that the tabs would have to be maybe a milimeter thin, and something that thin won’t survive for long… Unless I go metal… But I’m trying to keep things simple and rely on 3D printed parts.
Let’s see if these new mounts will hold up.
ty @Troll for sharing just read the whole thread!
now can someone explain me how the aero with so many pixels runs smooth like the reverb g2?
To me the real question is how can the Reverb G2 run so poorly.
I’m gonna guess it’s because the Varjo doesn’t require running WMR, Steam VR AND WMR for steam VR . Ridonculus . Recall the Hanks “box of chocolates” quote ? I never know what I’m gonna get when I boot DCS . About 1/2 the time it does what it’s sposta . The other half , mouse frozen in vr , working on the mirror and only the mirror . Or black screen & I can hear the DCS audio . Or “Steam VR cancelled because it didn’t shut down properly” even though everything was working . Or WMR “your headset is sleeping wake up” & the “wake up” button doesn’t do anything . All of this when I boot and shut down in exactly the same manner every time . What a mess ! At least the other 50% of the time the experience is awesome , and the G2 is sooo comfortable !
The G2 needs an upsampling in order to correct for distortion of the lenses which means your PC must produce more pixels than for the Aero.
Like I wrote earlier, the Aero looks better at Steam VR 50% resolution, than the G2 at 100% (which is upsampled).
Nice ! Looks OEM .
Wow…that looks like it came from the factory like that. I’m always impressed by the fit and quality of the mods you do @Troll - it is an exceptional talent you have there!
You Da Man!!
good work …and you ate the reindeer, didnt you?
They are really tasty…
I went ahead and ordered the Counterbalance Comfort kit from Studioform Creative VR, hoping it would help me with the fitting issues I have with the Aero…
DHL shipping was just a couple of dollars more, and five days after ordering I recieved a package from Auckland, New Zeeland.
Two 100g counterweights and a overhead strap. The counterweights are enclosed in soft welcro wrapping and feels like it contains a curved piece of metal.
They are attached to the back of the Aero strap like this.
The overhead strap isn’t really compatible with my audio solution and I think this makes it sit too far back. I’ll see what I can do about this. On the other hand the Aero already has an overhead strap for the forhead, so maybe having the Studioform strap further back isn’t such a bad idea?
Anyway, after about half an hour in DCS, I’m convinced! This works.
I think the counterweights alone makes a big difference as the headset won’t move down as it used to do, as the counterbalance weights…well, counters the weight of the VR display, and balances it
I need to fiddle a bit more with the overhead strap to see what position works best for me.
I think this is pretty nice solution (the counterweight) to the comfort issues with these big goggles… sometimes I feel that even my audio headset is too heavy and uncomfortable
Not gonna lie, that last pic looks badass…
