I don’t think I’m real swift with this but here it goes.
I received my 8kx 2 days ago didn’t have a lot of time to mess with it when and nothing was in the box but the headset - no paperwork, nothing to wipe the lenses, nothing.
When I first plugged it in I updated the firmware. Pitool was already up to date. Couldn’t wait to see this clarity. Put it on and tried my favorite game skyrim vr with over 400 mods. No clarity, looked way worse than my 5k+. Also my vram was at 7.6 . I couldn’t believe it was this poor of a quality image. Messed around with the resolution for a while and still the image sucked. It was late so would try next day.
On the 2nd day I don’t know what happened but the clarity was there and I have no idea how it happened. Went into Skyrim and it was gorgeous. Still high vram usage but I dropped the number of mods down and got the vram down to about 7 and it was working very well. Stopped to eat dinner and came back to the game and everything changed, vram was at 7.7 and the mask kept cutting off and on about every 5 to 20 seconds. Went to the vanilla skyrim and same problem.
Decided to play half life Alyx and it first came in very clear for about 2 minutes. Then the graphics went to very low res. Kicked the res up to high then ultra to no avail. Went to big screen and picture came in pretty good but would hmd would cut off and on about every 30 to 60 seconds. Found the plug was loose (for the 2nd time , the 1st time was when I first started). I don’t know what is causing these problems but I’ll remove my extension cables and try again later today.
