Comment reply on Forum Topic "New to Virtual Reality (Videos and Games) - What device (cheap?)"

  • 26 months ago

Pimax 4k, uses openvr I believe so it works with most games developed for PC. (~350 USD)

Any of the windows mixed reality headsets. (~250-550 USD)

There's probably some cheaper, questionable source, headset out there but those are the two I know that are more budget then the Vive/rift.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Oculus question..."

The 3.0 port requirements is actually just one for the headset, one for the main sensor. I'm not entirely sure if it's required for either one but that's what's recommended. If they're not looking at getting one today or haven't already gotten it I can see what happens if you use occulus on 2.0, 3.0 USB hub, etc on my pc.

Currently my occulus is plugged into 2x 3.0 ports and 2x 2.0 ports (I have an extra sensor) and I don't see any issues while playing games.

If you ever tried battery percussion that's all that is. Set music, set times, no creativity required. (For playing) best part about it all my snare section included giving the bird in our show three years in a row.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "[HELP] Playing with mouse and keyboard"

  • 27 months ago

If I play RTS's too long without a shooter I find dropping my sensitivity to about half what it normally is and working my way back up helps me regain any shred of precision I had before. I have a rather large mouse pad surface so I usually drop it to 400 dpi with around 10-20% sensitivity in games. Then about once every couple days of playing I raise either one until it feels uncomfortable.

This is just my method it may work for you or not but I can say for certain it helps me get 3-4x the amount of kills on Insurgency.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Switch or Rift?"

  • 27 months ago
  • 0 points

Personally the switch was too overhyped on it's abilities and isn't worth the $300 tag for the console and $40-60 tag for each game. Not that vr isn't overhyped but it's just such a new experience it's totally worth the tag (imo). Not a single person I've had use my rift or Vive took it off without being amazed how different it was.

If you do go vr just know great games are few (but cheaper than switch overall) and it's not something most people can get as much use out of because of physical space and each person's ability to do vr is different because of motion sickness and eye strain from wearing the headset. If you don't have the physical space I'd recommend the Vive every day otherwise if you don't and won't any.time soon, I wouldn't invest in vr as the pimax 8k is soon (supposedly) and there's always rumors of second versions of the vive and rift.

Did you ever drop your phone next to someone with an IPhone just to see the look of horror on their face? My 929 survived 3 years of drops because I'm bad with holding phones...

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is Squad Dead?"

  • 29 months ago
  • 2 points

The game isn't dead simple as that, however the player limit hovers between 800 and1500 it seems. That may not be a lot of people but you can always find a full server in your region with both skilled and novice players so no matter what your skill is at the game you won't be alone. Along with that though there is frequent sales and sadly some more experienced players push away some people through certain tactics.

Most importantly though, Offworld has been holding off on V10 for almost a year and there is a very good chance once they drop that more players will come back to the game as well as new players purchasing the game boosting the player population substantially for a while.

Even if you buy a disc in stores there's a good chance it'll require a Steam account to register, same with sites like Humble Bundle. If you're looking to save a little bit more get a Humble Bundle monthly subscription, you get a set of pretty decent games every month for $12 and you save 10% on their store which frequently has newer games on discount already.

Do you need a mod for euro truck? Haven't tried project cars yet but dirt rally and assetto Corsa work extremely well and don't cause too much discomfort when you start rolling. Even got my new roommate addicted to dirt within one week of meeting him because of the rift.

Onward if youre into shooters, and Arizona sunshine is a really good example of what vr can be.

Also they're aren't designed just for vr but racing games with vr are amazing. You can fly down the road and flip without the pain from rolling off a cliff.

If you're in good servers yes, otherwise I've seen people go 120 : 8 in a game were the average amount of kills is 20-30.

In my opinion it's got the same movement and combat feel but the maps are generally larger and higher player counts change the focus of the game to a faster paced push more than anything.

Although my opinion will always be biased cause I love this game almost as much as my computer.

You really aren't going to get a g-sync monitor that's high res/refresh without getting close to 700. Freesync is like the name and actually free so it's harder to find a monitor without it than it is with it.

Could always hope Vegas as good as the hype lol.

If you don't mind slight reductions in graphic settings 1440p 144hz is reachable by a single 1070. Otherwise you won't be getting full frames on most modern games (I have a slight addiction to games and got good use of my 1070). Otherwise if your okay with the bleeding wallet g-sync will help with the the lack of frames still providing a butterier feeling than 60hz.

If you want full butter get a 1080p. This is mostly repeating what others have said but just reaffirming them in a way since I've played prolly 100+ games on an EVGA 1070 FTW. (Just sold it for waterblocks for a couple TI's otherwise I'd offer benchmarks in any game I own.)

The only way your gonna keep the budget within 500 and have a 4k in there is if you buy something like the Acer G246HL for $110 and stick with Acer and the only 24" 4k Newegg lists is the AOC VX2475Smhl for $400.

I would really recommend going 27" (A. It's cheaper. B. It'll be easier to get the bezels to line up)

In the 27" category there's the Acer G276HL (Imo the best budget monitor series) and for the editing one the LG27UD58P (literally because it's the cheapest 4k, deep thought in that one)

HOWEVER, I would say screw everything I just say and get Acer XG270HU.

Everything I've suggested is just based on personal experience and trying to follow the constraints to said. There isn't much you should do if your trying to get a gaming AND editing screen, especially if you want 4k on a budget for one. 1440p 144hz is the middle ground albeit a single monitor solution.

And if your brother plans on max settings at 1440p/4k yes the 1080 is worth it, TI being preferable.

Hope this helps if it was even on time lol, feel free to question anything I've said happy to answer.
