Yeah, I like what I see but I don't know how big or long the entertainment will last. I may have taken the plunge at $10, but not at $20 for so many unknown factors. And yeah, they need way more, way cooler tracks.
It's like when your elderly mom trundles down into the basement to bring you her home cooking and everything about why you're still living down there is affirmed - but ultimately living on your own without these luxuries would be better for your personal development. Adjust your expectations, Cutter. Compromise.

There are some killer simulation games that will probably work great with this right now. Especially all the titles that already support TrackIR. Multitude of racing games, flight sims (DCS) and ArmA. The irony is that these titles require a high resolution due to the huds or the UI..

The largest issue I have is the resolution.

If this is the largest issue of the dev build version, I am very optimistic about the future of HMDs.

Unlike my TrackIR which I don't always bother to use since it sometimes feels like a hassle to setup, if I had a Rift sitting next to my monitor I'd see no reason NOT to use it.. It was comfortable had no latency and felt almost natural. I'm pretty jaded as far as novel peripherals go. I was pretty surprised by how easily I got into using it.

There's a third party app that will force any dx9 app to split the image correctly for the device too.

Wow, that sounds awesome. Is there much of a performance hit, since it's having to render from two separate perspectives? Or does the low rez counter that?


http://www.tridef.com/

I only tried a Simbin racing game but I saw no performance hit. Mostly down to it being an older title. There were some playability issues because in order to create the 3D effect the players view is offset to the left for the one eye, to the right for the other. My view was slightly to the left outside of the car I never had a chance to investigate correcting this. However you will at least be guaranteed a 3D effect with older titles using the headset. Headtracking didn't work that will likely require support from within the game.

I love the games too but I wish they would go a little more far-out with their tracks. They're too conventional and don't allow for enough over the top crashing. They need to play Demo Derby 2's "Chalk Valley" track and copy some of those massive jumps. The track seems realistic yet there is still massive crazy jumps.

Spent a day with the 720p dev version. Tried Hawken and a bunch of demos. There's a third party app that will force any dx9 app to split the image correctly for the device too.

Ignoring the 3D effect and looking at the Rift only from a headtracking perspective it blows TrackIR (which I've used for years) out of the water. There is absolutely no latency.

The largest issue I have is the resolution. Playing Hawken reminded me of 320x240 Doom. It was borderline unplayable. Felt like a novelty though it was very cool looking around your cockpit..just don't bother looking into the distance since it was a mass of pixels. This might be down to a calibration issue since the pixels seemed oddly elongated. Didn't get a chance to solve that.

It did disorientate me and caused slight nausua but that only set in after I took the device off. Only happened during an FPS demo where someone else was controlling the avatar's walking. Not being in control of walking yet feeling like I was "physically" walking caused disorientation.

I don't think nausua would be an issue with games where your body is in a vehicle or mech where you naturally would be stationary with something else moving you. Kicks in when you feel like you're walking and your body isn't.

I wonder how they would adapt conventional FPS, pretty much every FPS I can think of except ArmA/OFP, where your view is essentially your aim. How would they solve this for Quake/COD/BF where you're "looking" with the mouse? Some in between solution where you can also aim with your head and the mouse? ArmA would be incredible since the player's head/view has separate controls to the player's aim/weapon.

The resolution is still the largest issue. At 1080p I imagine this will mean an effective resolution of half that per eye. They need to get the resolution as high as they can.. Hell just go for 1440p.

It's not heavy and is surprisingly comfortable. Could wear it for hours.

I'd buy one.

Video driver failed & recovered
In the Nvidia 3D configuration set your power management to maximum.

By default Nvidia's drivers are set to switch the card to a low power mode ("adaptive") when not in use. Sometimes this happens while playing games..hence the driver restart error. Basically the card stops receiving enough power and the driver restarts. I've had this problem with nearly every NV card since the 7 series. Setting power management to maximum performance always solved it. There are tons of people with this problem yet somehow Nvidia doesn't document this really easy fix.

InBlack is misinformed. This has nothing to do with CLOD. It's a clean break. The only bad thing that might happen is that it's too close ROF.

Having so much fun on xbox and ps3, I don't even care at this point....

Ok while I understand the draw of console gaming to a point, and I can even understand (sort of) the reason for having multiple consoles, because of game exclusivity and whatnot I really, really, dont get buying the SAME game on BOTH consoles at the same time. Why would you do that?? (Im not dissing here, I really want to know the motivation for doing this)

Part of Ken Kutaragiís vision of the PS3 was for the console to ship without a dedicated graphics processor, with the now infamous Cell chip handling ALL the processing.

How on earth is this moron in charge of the playstation division? Seriously? In 2005 you wanted to go without a dedicated graphics unit?

I'm guessing he thought that half a frame a MINUTE would have been suitable performance for the PS3. What a fucking idiot.

Yeah LOL it speaks volumes regarding how they went about creating the console. People who actually made games, or knew how hardware worked weren't making decisions, obviously.

Instead they had clueless suits who threw hundreds of millions of dollars at a crazy-ass cell processor and thought it would be better than anything because they apparently thought money solves all problems. Oh I forgot to say: PC gaming is dead.

They came to their senses though.

They realised a PC in an attractive box with a moronpad attached would be much simpler to produce.

The fools out there in couch land will never know the difference!
