    pick up/pub racing has never been popular in rF2 as far as I can remember so saying "rF2 is dying" doesn't really make a whole lot of sense since it was never really "alive" in the first place. :p

    I'd just like to use the rift with rF2. I am that selfish. I do not get this stubborness here at all. Never seen somehting like this anywhere else.

    Good luck with AC....with no pit stop, no strategy, no endurance racing support, no penalty and flags system, no driver swap, no real road, bugy damage, and the worst netcode in the sim market......again you need a lot of luck, you and your league!

    No dk 2 support also means no cv1 support at the start. Because cv1 is based on the dk 2. This means when cv1 comes out a lot of new ppl in racing will only look at oculus supportet titels.

    CV1 may be out next Christmas. We're still 2 months away from Christmas this year. What makes it so certain that there won't be support ready in time for CV1 release? They have at least a year to get things done, DK2 support may come the day before CV1 releases. So?

    I don't know if today is International Panic Day or something... lol :D

    Clearly something is making a lot of people think that ISI is steadily steering this sim straight into an early grave. No official OR support yet: AC will win 'the war'. Minor graphical bugs in newly released tracks: AC will win 'the war'.

    Really quite amusing. Slightly annoying, but most of all really amusing. All in good time, patience etc. :D

    We talk about no dk 2 support from isi......... if they don t buy a dk 2 than it doesn t matter when the cv1 coming out. And if this is a fact rfactor 2 will not have a oculus support when cv1 coming out and this would be a shame. Thats just a fact. Maybe isi will get a dk 2 in half year or whatever but that is not case. But for example if cv1 coming winter 2015/2016 and isi decide 1-2 month before to get a dk2 to get ready for cv1 start it would be still stupid because u could do it now and maybe win some customer. And dk 2 support is allways a good commercial for ur Titel. So for a publisher it makes no sense to wait if u need a dk 2 anyway. So the whole mainsteam thing what isi talk about dk 2 is complete *piep* There are only one reason to not buy dk 2 and it is to save 300 dollar and wait for the cv1 and work with the cv1 to make the oculus in rfactor 2 ready. This would mean that a publisher care about 300 Dollar :D

    What war? All titles can coexist. If one is going by Oculus Rift support and video preview virtual reality hype then Live for Speed and pCARS are the winners.

    Man, that's why I wrote "the war", with citation marks, because it's an imagined war, made up by blind fanboys, which I find laughable and quite ridiculous.

    The very point is that I don't believe there is a war.
    My post was merely pointing out how funny it is that so many people think there is.
    There's quite a lot of panic going on right now, but why? I have no clue.

    So the best thing is to just use it as a bit of entertainment. ;)

    It makes sense not due to money reason but because ISI is primarily not interested in supporting a certain device, but all types of virtual headsets (read quote below). It's a bit same as if rF2 would suddenly add support for some Samsung monitor technology. It makes not much sense when you have limited resources as ISI does, they have clearly decided to spend their time on more important things and later add generic support for headsets when it gets more popular.

    Doug: What about new technology with the virtual headsets? Any updated news to report?

    Gjon: We did some work on it with the original Rift device. We already had some of the basics in there from earlier products and the Rift work enhanced this further. At some point soon we will carve out time and finish this up for not only the Rift but for all devices of this class.

    Has everyone forgotten that there is a chance ISI will be implementing DK2 support because a commercial client might be paying for it

    Ok, so i just tried the DK2 for my first time and OMFG!!! It's amazing!

    I was not expecting it to be this big of a leap in resolution quality from the dk1 to the dk2. When i bought and tried the dk1, after an hour i put it on ebay immediately. The resolution was so bad. The DK2 has only improved from 800p to 1080p which certainly doesn't sound like a big improvement but when coupled with the new screen improvement in general, it's quite literally 10x better than i had imagined it was going to be.

    This is actually a very functional and usable product as is in my opinion, something i never expected i would say until a CV2 based on dk1 experience. I can completely see why Oculus have said they're not going to produce a dk3 but instead release the CV1 next.

    I am swearing left, right and center when using it....very impressive.

    Somebody was able to develop a DLL for Richard Burns Rally that makes it playable with DK2. Haven't had a chance to install and test yet (we're swimming in racers now), but it looks pretty great. And kind of hilarious how awesome a job he's done with a simple DLL hack. Pretty amazing.

    What seems obvious to me is that everyone that tries the Rift with a sim, is instantly sold on the tech, even if not for the DK2 itself, at least for CV1 or CV2 in the worst case scenario. Only people complaining about resolution and FOV and stuff are the ones that never tried one, and can't even imagine what it's like.

    The comment of the guy saying DK2 makes others "kick your arse" because of screendoor was epic, ignorant sentence of the month. I've not only became faster with DK2, but is much more enjoyable and as already said, slides are caught much earlier and consistency improves drastically. It's like gamepad vs Wheel, you can actually be as fast in a hotlap with a gamepad, but it's much easier to be consistent with the wheel because it's more natural and precise. With the Rift the exact same thing happens again, the 3D sense of scale makes it much easier and natural to drive. Only a better screen and a haptic chair separates you from the real thing, and that will eventually come so monitors are basically sentenced to death already for sim racing

    Great comment, and also completely true. Here another frustrated owner of dk2 + RF2. Hopefully Isi learns once but I think that as they are always looking the other way. Unfortunately we have had the best sim with the worst possible development. They probably using the familiar excuse that the CV1 bring him out, waiting for an unknown support with all the systems of virtual reality, which most do not have begun to develop their product. But we will wait using games like:

    iRacing
    pcars
    Assetto Corsa
    LFS
    Richard Burns Rally
    RaceRoom Racing Experience

    and other less rFactor2. maybe so many people asking the same thing means something.

    Yep - I have been playing Elite Dangerous properly now with the DK2 for a month or so. I loaded up last night without the DK2 and I can't believe how much I dislike standard monitor play in that game now, regardless of the poorer visible res of the DK2! Car Sims will be the exact same for me also.
