There's some mud in your eye.

Recommend just pushing the button on the bottom, right away and letting the thing slide out for max distance, I have seen your glasses, and my new and signifcantly larger specs fit inside this no problem.

I had to use my old glasses with the old rift, not brilliant since my astigmatism decided to switch from the left to the right since then.
It doesn't cost me any fov either so might as well not scratch the lenses.

I find most cans fit rather easily over it, so I completely ignore the audio side of it, it's really shit so, yeah.

Also be careful with super sampling.
I think if you are rocking a 1080 or better it will default to a "Quality" settings in oculus.
This equates to running the thing with a supersampling of 1.2x compared to the stock setting.
And any SS you apply after wards in games, or Elite will come as a multiplier on top of that value again.

1080 Ti…..

That might explain a few things...….

Getting stutters more than the CV1......Which was set as 1.5 for ED......I'll look at that.....Cheers for the heads up....

Stock audio sucks monkey bollocks......Using Bose in ear...…

I can now use my normal computer glasses.....Excellent.....

The controllers can now stand up on desk....Excellent...…

Passthrough...….Can find beer......Luv it...… :lol:



Had a few jumping through hoops after set up with USB.....My fault...

I forgot I had Win 10 set to channel updates.....Defer 365 days...…

I was still on 1709...….Changed settings.....2 and a bit hours later now on 1903.....With a green light in the rift settings....

Limited time I have so far in it.....Feels strange on head.....But comfortable.....Feels hotter...….

Text much clearer....But my eyes still expect it to be blurred...….They will learn.....Eye muscle memory I spose..... :)

Right....Back to testing and tweaking...…….

:)

I completely turned off hmd-q in elite with the S.
But I am running Quality as it does by default so there is that.

And turned on fxaa for a little smoothing instead.

Might be a few drivers behind on the gpu so can test that now.

I used to have a white flash every 5-10 minutes, but after the latest updates from Oculus I get those only once every 30-60 minutes.

Yup, did the same after I learned I was running at 40 fps the whole time with 1.25 HMD quality. It still looked and felt much better than the CV1 with ASW enabled. I assume they've updated their image processing since I disabled ASW on the CV1 soon after I got it.
It's time to give this another go.

I have the exact same thing.
Seems related to the win 10 1903 update.

Works just fine though.
So I'm ignoring it.

The talk of a C adapter is as far as I can tell for laptops with no dedicated DP port, but capable enough that they have a Thunderbolt enabled USB-C port.

Those are also DIsplay ports connections.
It needs to be hardwired to your main GPU though, which is not the case for a fair amount of laptops with these anyway..

Don't really see what plugging into a USB-c port would do differently, the rift would just identify as a USB 3 device anyway.
Kind of suprised they didn't add an adapter for the Virtual Link port, but then again, those are only found on RTX GPU's so might not have that many users compared to everyone with a 970 and up.

OBS is shit, and that's not really news though is it ?
