VR in Jun-2019: HP Reverb, Valve Index, Oculus Rift S
« on: June 08, 2019, 07:39:06 PM »
I considered a Valve Index, as upgrade to my Vive.
However, lotsa rave reviews about the HP Reverb especially its super high res, making cockpit instruments readable!!

Wags also posted a very very positive message about it.

Havent got VR? The go gettit!!  It totally changes DCS flying. Really!!  Bummer with 1st gen such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive is the low res, making reading instruments really hard unless u use VR Zoom. However, now the reverb is chaing that at an affordable price.


If u havent got VR. Then now order one. Really!!!

Have no problem with the Vive Pro and reading text. However, some of the labeling in the F-14 is still a bit iffy. There again, it's still iffy in 2D.

And remember guys, the greater the res you go on a HMD, PC requirements skyrocket! So much so, a RTX 2080 is a minimum for DCS in my view.

Might start looking at it more seriously now -but I am likely to let it improve further before getting it.

Do look forward to giving it a whirl one-day though. 8)

I'm thinking of the end of the year being when I might consider a punt towards VR.  Watched a great DCS related vid of the Oculus S and the big step foward in legibility in the F18 cockpit.   Great thing being that Headset wont destroy the bank!

How much is the HP thing?
