Hey everyone. Just starting to get back into Flight Simming after a few months away (almost a year for DCS) and I am trying to commit to VR.
First: I have a pointCTRL device but it was proving (a year ago) to be difficult to configure with my HP Reverb G1 and Windows WMR (extra screens ans such). I think that this has improved … but one thing I am trying to avoid is 30 minutes of setup for a 30 minute flight. I inevitably forget to start something by the time I get in game. For anyone who has this device: does it ‘just work’ for you or are there a lot of steps that you have to run through every time you want to get in VR? I admit my general ignorance with this and level of laziness to search through the PointCTRL thread on the ED forums.
Second: Other hardware devices. The primary thing that was preventing me from comitting to VR previously was the large set of additional hardware devices that I have. I built one, have 2 Thrustmaster MFDs and a CH Products sticky-button-thingy. The problem with these in my custom cockpit chair is that I want to reach out and use them, but can’t see them or I am continuously hitting them when trying to use the HP Reverb G1 hand controllers. Do you just give up on those devices? And I realize that PointCTRL above would make that somewhat easier…
Third: Viacom and VoiceAttack. Do you use this a lot? Again, know I should just get off my lazy arse and commit to learning it, and I know that the people that do use it love it. I guess I am looking for someone to tell me to stop resisting
Fourth: fpsVR. Is there a way to tell it to stay in a virtual location and stop drifting up into my view (and over the top of the cockpit displays that I am trying to see? I usually start it and then, about 10 minutes in kill it . I guess what I am really asking is how to bring up the fpsVR settings page. Maybe I’m old
