Hi KP, Thank You for the information. I will apply your steps. At least I finally have a starting point.
Now, I must offer my apologies to ALL. Especially to Sweviver etal. My comment about the IPD was out of line. When I made that comment, I was at my wits end, and had a raging headache.
Still totally uncalled for on my part. I usually don’t hit the send/post key when I’m angry and or frustrated.
As others and as I have said, I just want to enjoy my headset too.
I purchased the hinges aftermarket, installed the 161 degree ones as recommended, and the right snapped in two as I adjusted my headset. It took me almost 2 hours to install them! Being as though there really was no documentation or video for them, I wasn’t exactly sure if I had done everything correctly. I have now reinstalled the pimax hinges again.
I then tried to update to .295, as I understood that was an improvement for the 8KX. As per my other thread, I could not ge tit to install. I still show .294. Yes, I followed the mentioned video. Still not updated to .295
I have a fav plane I like to fly in p3d v5.1 I set up my P3D stuff, created a link in PE. Started P3Dv5.1 up, selected my plane etc.
I get into the plane, the panel is not real clear, it’s shimmery somewhat, and if I move my head a bit, I get the shudder stuff.
I know P3d v5.1 is not the greatest on VR. Buit I feel I have a pretty good machine to run VR
i9900 4.9ghz(little better for cooling) ti2080,32GB ram, water and aircooled.
So when I see this happening, it just builds up my frustration even more.
I don’t know :
Is this caused by my IPD not set correctly.( hence my frustration on that end. I always felt that was the most important thing in setting up your headset. That was the reason for my comment re IPD)
Do I have something setup wrong in Pitool? Or PE. Hmm, let me check the manual. Ooops forgot. There is NO manual. I know it’s beta, I have tested other beta programs, we at least had some documentation to give us a starting point.
Is it still some of my P3D settings? Which ones do I need to tweak. I followed the VR guide that LM put out.
What do I need to set in PE, or Pitool or Steam VR to run my game. Thank You PK for the step by step. That will help.
When I follow all these suggestions to make my visuals look great, and it doesn’t happen for me; were is the disconnect? I don’t know.
It also frustrates me, I fly airliners for a living, and I can’t seem to figure out a damn HMD for my enjoyment. This shouldn’t be this difficult for me, but it eats my lunch.
KP, I so appreciate you taking the valuable time and patience with me/us. I don’t think I’m alone here.
TO SWEVIVER etal, My apologies again for the misplaced frustration to you and your team regarding PE and IPD. It was uncalled for, I know you and Armin or doing your best.
To the REST of you here on the Forum. I offer my apologies as well. I hope you can now understand why I made the post(s).
I hope very soon, I too can enjoy the benefits of my 8KX as well. Off to see if I can make some headway now.
