    "For games which use custom engines, ASW 2.0 could require significant effort on the developer’s part."

    Yeah that may work against us getting it supported in RF2, never say never though as ever it's up to the Devs to see :)

    hello guys, with the oculus glasses, if you go to the track and hit the + or - sign, you change the cockpit, but only two in two, that is, when there are a number of even vehicles you can only ride if you are number two, you will advance to 4.6 or 8, if you are 1 you will jump to 3.5.7, I do not know if studio 397 knows the problem, or if it has already been commented, greetings

    definitely if there are a number of odd pilots, you can upload live in all other cars, if they are even numbers, you can not, this requires modification of studio 397 !!!

    Having a few parts that are not visible hardly stresses the system more, when you see a bunch of cars around you that have those parts already around you, than just put the rearwheels and spoiler as visible too.
    With this headset and an openwheeler it's very easy and natural to stick your face out of the car and look back, only to find out there are parts missing. It's also very cool to stand next to the car and get in to it, like the real deal.

    I have the Vive and Rift CV1.

    I would say the Rift CV1 is better IMO. Rift is way more comfortable to wear for longer periods, easier to take on and off and less noticeable SDE.

    Only pro for the Vive is the screen is much brighter which might explain why it's easier to see the SDE.

    Thaks for sharing, yes, comfort is a big deal actually. Do you have that Deluxe strap with Vive?

    No I don't have the delux strap. However I did try the Vive Pro which has a similar head strap and it didn't feel as nice as the Rift. Adds extra weight and the knob on the back is annoying as when setting in my racing seat it constantly rubs and catches the back of it. Also is a pain to take on and off.

    Thanks for being honest and objective about hardware you own. Yes, when I look at Vive's strap, I had suspicion it will be as you describe, and you just confirmed that... Well, we'll see what Pimax comes up with, but after my failed attempt to migrate to WMR, I am quite vary of any straps that are rigid. Another positive note is that current annoyances with Oculus software most likely will have workarounds down the road, so we won't have to stick to Oculus Client.

    Just picked up the sim thanks to the Steam fall sale. Thanks to the tips in this thread, got it working natively with the Rift, and tweaked the player.json file and it's running great. Thanks!

    Having just recently got back into the rift, I do have to say, it is a pleasant experience. You definitely get more of a perception when driving.

    Guys, I implemented rF2 track loading screen in OC (as well as Raceroom support and ability to run scripts on startup), but merge into main binary takes longer than I expected. Stay tuned, I'll update this thread when main binary gets my work.

    Sorry, what's OC? Nonetheless, cool development, as always.
