General Discussion / Archer at Cadwell park
« Last post by 159th_Archer on September 13, 2019, 10:37:15 AM »
Here's a link to YT for my 2 races at Cadwell park in Lincolnshire last weekend. Fantastic circuit that I hadn't visited for 11 years -for sure back there next year.

Meeting went well and I ended up with 2 4th places -I notice that my pace was off from the last visit where I got a good 3rd -need to have a word with the driver or car or both...

I am in the black car #42. Video is unedited and so there are some gaps when you see nowt. Content was filmed by a spectator and a such only filmed from 1 spot.

The HP Reverb resolution is amazing. Like a normal monitor. I can read the small ticker symbols on F-14 lefthand console, without zoom. Its that good.

Clarity:
What I hoped the Valve Index would be.
- Compared to the ole 'HTC Vive & Rift CV1. WHat you must be kidding.  No fair comparison.
- Compared to Valve Index & Rift S -- its like a Apple Mac non-Retina vs Retina. Much clearer.

Sound:
Its oke. Compared to Rift S oke. Compared to the Valve Index.. terrible.
Is sound that bad? Definitely not. Once you get used to the Index' sound everything else is sh*t.

Smoothness:
No stutter, everything is smooth on my 5 yrs old ' i7-4770k 16GB with Nivdia 980GTX videocard. Gfx settings to DCS default "VR"-settings.
Compared to the Rift S: same, see above.
Compared to Valve Index: in the index the SteamVR playarea occasionally shows up for 0,25 seconds.

SteamVR support
Yes. Works perfect. From Steam, install the Windows Mixed Reality for SteamVR (2Mb download) and your set.

Comfort:
Suxx. Its like the HTC Vive. Its much lighter though.
 - Compared to the Valve Index: the Index i dont feel its on my head
 - Compared to the Rift S which was very comfortable.

Which VR headset?
- Current gen Rift S is overall the best value for money.
- Index is overpriced.
- Reverb.. defintley worth it. Superior resolution.

If I were to buy a VR-headset today.. I would get HP Reverb.

Rumours has it of a HP Reverb pricedrop soon.

Let us know how you get on with the Reveb. If ED forums are to go by, it might be worth waiting a while for HP to get their act together before investing.

Iím particular interested in performance, resolution and clarity is no good if you only get 30FPS.

I canít imagine you would need to reinstall Windows. However, you may have to reactive the license and update drivers.

The same goes for any DCS modules that use the old Starforce activation method. That can be negated by deactivating them first so you do not lose a license.

Tech Support / PC upgrade & need for Windows reinstall?
« Last post by 159th_pappavis on August 22, 2019, 11:15:28 AM »
Does one need to reinstall Windows when changing mobo+ processor hardware?
Can I just plugin my current SSD c-drive & go from one mobo to the new one.. like with Ubuntu & Rapsberry Pi?

My current Windows install dates from Aug-2012.  Thus, exactly 7 years stable. Yes, 2x gfx cards changes happened etc.
I''ve put of upgrading, due to fear of need to reinstall apps, utils, whatnots after a bigass hardware upgrade.
