So Pitool 1.0.1 258 just released, I can’t comment in that topic and apparently I can’t create a new topic, so I’ll share my experience here.
First, huge thanks to @Heliosurge and the Pimax team, I’m amazed that they managed to include reset HMD and service buttons even after only a few days since I suggested it. It actually was really helpful today, since the first time I booted the HMD it was detected by Pitool and LHs, but the screen was black, like it was turned off. I clicked the HMD reboot button, and a few seconds later it reconnected and it was working just fine, it looks like a minor thing but this usually forced me to reboot for several minutes, having it fixed in seconds felt like magic.
About the catalyst thing, it’s maxed by default, so I was expecting stutters and having to lower it, however I had no stutters at all even maxed, at least on SteamVR home, everything worked great, tracking, controllers, stutters, performance. Maybe I’ll report some issues when I try a few games, but right now i’m really happy with my Pimax 8K and Pimax software team.
I’ve criticized Pimax a lot, but now is time to say a big thanks to them, they have fixed all my problems at this point, and it’s great because 8K is a stunning device only hindered by the beta state of their software, I may even recommend again PImax devices at this point. Now come Half Life Alyx, my body and Pimax are ready.
