    I read about the screen door effect where you can see pixel lines. How is dealing with that? How is the 960x1080 resolution for each eye?

    It really depends on the demo/game. Of course it's ever present but depending on the image quality and how well it is programmed you can live with it. It seems to me like some programmers have trouble translating their image rendering for the Rift. This results then in a (very) pixelated image. But still, in LFS the overall experience is so good that you can ignore the screendoor effect. The resolution is still to low but its driveable and thus enjoyable ;)

    We drove a bit with the open wheeler on LFS in the demo version in multiplayer and it worked really nice. Battle in the corners was so much fun. Just being able to use the mirrors and do a quick look over the shoulder to see the attacking drivers position. The track looks so much wider. I believe the Rift is one of those things that not only make you drive safer in the sim but even faster thanks to the ability to have a perception like in real life.

    No, eyefinity is better (based on previous posts)

    ha!

    CV1 and the following ones will be the future of racing simulation (the future of virtual entertainment actually)

    the 1:1 direct feel that I get with the dk2 is zero ( ok ....unnoticeabe/extremely low ) & no messing fov + no diddling around with triple screens or trying to get best & most realistic view etc, the dk2 is giving 1:1 feel of vision + seamless tracking, to me this video sums it up

    ( the resolution inside the dk2 is a better than this YouTube vid )

    http://youtu.be/GTJZTc1U1tM


    done a pretty decent motion profile for my rig too & VR works extremely well with it


    what I've been doing in live for speed (which is what reminded me of the senna vid ) (not my upload)

    http://youtu.be/wqMQPuuMXuo

    I'm at over 300fps -no vsync, no tearing, no judder, no track problems at all

    getting close to those walls at speed & on the edge with a 3d VR headset on is incredible

    p.s trying to crack 40 secs .....anyone else trying?


    ( i7 @ 4.8ghz, Titan @1130mhz all water cooled )

    roll on rfactor 2 VR support!

    Mine was shipped today. Expecting it on Thursday. I will have to read to see what I need to install to make it work with rF2 which is the only sim I am driving. I m getting nervous already

    Let us know how you get on with it spaskis
    Rfactor 2 is unsupported

    You might find it frustrating at first then you'll get use to the different settings etc

    I hope you have a decent pc

    I have a laptop not very powerful indeed. You can check my profile. I need to update my hardware but I wanted to wait until I got the rift and make some testing before I decided

    Gosh, good luck

    Not sure if it's going to perform ( seamless tracking & a VR experience ) on a laptop

    But if your ready for an upgrade then now might be a great time

    So RF2 works with vorpx but only in Z-buffer not Geometry mode so that means barely any 3d effect and also no headtracking though I'm sure that vittorio will save us again when he gets time :D. I think my 1080p DK1 has a higher pixel density than the DK2 but with the higher refresh rate it's a lot cleaner/sharper (also amoled blacks = yum).

    I'd much rather be using Tridef as their software always seems to work a lot better and is easier to setup but I think they may be going through some trouble as they haven't responded on their forums for a while and nothing about the DK2.

    Can you ask VorpX to improve support for rF2? I would buy it if head tracking and geometry mode 3d worked.

    finally removed monitors, VR only from now on (putting one monitor on wall for windows desktop), less cables too and get around the rig much better!

    will not need displays on my wheels wither -one more cable our of the equation!

    Spent 3 hours by accident with LFS this afternoon. Oh my god. It is amazing with the rift dk2. For me it IS good enough to use instead of monitors. The open wheelers around that city track are epic.

    PLEASE ISI, PLEASE! Rift support made me and loads of others spend £24 on the complete LFS game. Implement support now and see the money come in. People are gagging for it.

    Hiya

    Good enough to compete with what ?


    Edit : VR vs tripple 3d ?

    VR wins hands down
    It's a choice of being in a virtual environment (visually)or looking at a virtual environment

    Use those open top go kart style things ( MRT ? )
    In city "sprint 2 " track
    Trying to go sub 40 ( with untouched default race setup)

    I know lfs isn't as good as rf2 .....but in VR I've not experienced anything like it !

    Ps in lfs in the dk2 -no vsync uncapped I'm getting 333.3fps & flawless 1:1 tracking etc

    Will give it a go. My frameratd counter states a constant 75 but I thought I didn't have v sync on. I will investigate. I don't get any lag though with head movements or anything.
