Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

> Well, the warthog is a plastic cup gimbal with a heavy grip,, exactly, right? That's the reason I'm a little disappointed, despite all praising on the internet. Thanks for the link, I'll try it out. Though it seems like a mechanical thing to me. Anyway it seems I've got a used device delivered (bo...

Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

I wanted to say that I'm quite happy with my Rift. Despite the problem, that landing pad numbers are only readable within a range of 1km or so ... Then I tested some HOTAS systems. The TFlight4 was really ok at the beginning, very beginner friendly. Almost perfectly placed buttons, though not very f...

Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

I just came back from a tour through the city, looking to buy the Rift. Media Markt, Saturn, Cyberport, GameStop and some other little shop. Here I am, money to spend.. But Nothing! Nobody sells neither Rift or Vive. No wonder why they all are whining and complaining how bad VR sells. Yeah because n...

Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

I'm sorry for your problems getting the Pimax, and I'm very looking forward to read a review! I've still not bought the Oculus Rift, because I am anxious buying a last-gen and despite that, I don't have that much dedicated USB channels. If I bought one of those recommended usb-pci cards, it would co...

Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

hmmmmmmhhh ... I am no more sure if Oculus Rift is the better choice for Elite ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0leNzzUlAI4 Seems Pimax is the better device for Elite - has anybody experience in using both for comparism? I don't care too much for other VR games. Maybe some day I'll try Dirt, Gran...

Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

yeah ok sorry, "desk" was a bit wrong but I meant the right :D at least the monitor is missing what makes it kinda obvious :D Oh by the way, is it actually possible to have VR also in Desktop mode ? Under Linux? omg, my dreams would come true - Shell in VR with i3 tiling window manager in ...

Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

Very interesting, thanks for the insight and explanation! I've never been a fan of x86, since good ol' Amiga days on. And I indeed know that x86 is hacky and inefficient compared to ARM. I also know what the p, i and z Series are capable of – I worked at IBM administrating these fine machines. (P.S....

Re: New Rig: GTX vs RTX

> Granted I might be a little insane hrhr ;-) Well I am about to pay >2k for a rig only so I can play Elite in VR, so you're not alone being insane :-D I don't know either why Sony can't just put better hardware in that freakin box. They care too much for casual gamers on budget I think. I wouldn't ...
