Laughing In The face Of Adversity

Postby Cmdr Kharma » Sun Sep 10, 2017 9:00 pm

Not been playing as it seems I'm getting old and strange things are happening to my body.....

Soooo whilst I can't play I have been trying to figure out why games/rift are not fully utilising my rig....

It came to a head when I downloaded DCS world....Just to try it in VR......

Out of VR it was dropping frames even when it was only using 3% of the GPU and CPU.......

Mucho searching later.....Downloaded sthg called Nvidia Inspector.....

https://www.techspot.com/downloads/5077 ... ector.html

Good video here.......4 years old...But gives you the basics.....

https://youtu.be/syE55-jEzb8

Anyway done that and GPU and CPU usage jumped right up to what I would sorta expect......Still not maxing it but far better....


Side story....

Wife hates me spending the money I did...Been trying to get her to see what I'm on about.....

Sooooo.......DCS in an SU25...Pause game and plead with her to take a look.....

She does......

I sit her in seat...Put rift on and she goes......Jesuuuuuuuuuuuussssssssss........ (I have smirk on face)

First thing she does is reach for the ingame joystick and knock my beer over.......Go figure.....

I grab hold of her hands and place them on the throttle and joystick.......

Then resume the game.......

Fine for about 30 secs......I'm telling her small movements......

She then goes into a dive and shits herself......Screaming I'm gonna crash and rips the rift off.....

I have tears in my eyes.......Made my day.......


:lol: :lol:

I got one better.
Set her up for a multicrew session and I can take her for a ride in the 500ms Fer-de-lance :P

Or cause her to yawn in full Technicolor.

I give even odds either way.

So you can possibly get your money back then. ;)

Honestly doesn't seem very even on the left either.
