I've been playing on the Quest 2 a lot recently and I think it's time to upgrade the standard strap.

 

Any thoughts on which way to go with this?

 

I hear the Halo is expensive and brittle, but there are some good options on Aliexpress for around £20...

 

I got a halo strap from Ali for about 20 quid. It's been great, super comfortable and feels robust. Got it from Czechia in about 7 days, too.

Thanks, yes, I'm going to try a Halo. In my original post I meant to say the Elite is expensive and brittle.

 

Playing so much Saints & Sinners it's time for some comfort.

Doesn't look like anything is changing in that new model apart from the silicone mask and the storage.

 

I must have 15 games on my Quest 2 (64GB) and still haven't run out of storage so I'm not too bothered.

yooka-laylee is now currently free on epic game store and its a great platform - but even better there is a vr mod out that lets you play the whole game perfectly in vr 

 

you can get the game here - https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/p/yooka-laylee

 

and the mod from here: https://github.com/Eusth/VookaRaylee  (along with straightforward install instructions) 

 

i was playing it perfectly via virtual desktop ( as i find it better for steam vr games - but will prob work with link and steam vr)

Hey Quest users is Ultrawings any good, I saw it on the app the other day and thought it looked fun. 

 

I really enjoyed it for what it is (a fairly stripped down flying game with few bells or whistles).

Cool I've got MS Flight Sim on the xbox but this looks to be a bit more fun.

It's definitely a lot easier! And flying in VR is always nice if it doesn't make you sick (there's a few different cockpit modes to try and help with that but I didn't generally suffer). Just don't be expecting anything AAA, I guess any clips you watch of it in play will show you how it looks.

Warplanes is also pretty good ww1 plane action with similar touch controls 

 

if your looking a more full on plane sim with full touch controls (and works well on virtual desktop or air link) then I also recommend flyinside on steam while graphically not on the same level as ms flight sim it also uses bing maps (lower version) for its ground map of the world  - the touch controls are really good with all controls and switches having to be operated by your hands plus it’s runs really well (ms flight sim you need a state  of the art pc to run in vr properly ). This is a vid I made a couple of months ago to show a mate

It's got some of the chilled out cruising of Pilotwings 64, albeit without the character. It's pretty fun though, and has that low-poly charm.

Any ideas where I can get hold of an Quest 2? Mate wants one for their kids. Had a quick look online and guessing these have rocking horse shit availability of the PS5?


they all were recalled/replaced with different foam covers and different storage options at the beginning of august. It’ll take a while (eg from today) for them to cycle through.

Thanks @footle
 

I’m partly to blame as they came round to ours and played the PSVR and loved it. However they’re heavily invested in PC. 


JL are selling 256GB models from the 31st.

The new improved 128Gb version (that replaces the 64Gb one) went live on the Oculus store just now.   I just nabbed one.  Ships for delivery on Monday

 

When you get it, hit me up for RTX 3080 ACC settings :)

I'm coming awfully close to impulse buying the new 128gb one as it’s in stock at my nearest Argos.

 

Couple of questions. Does it start spewing stuff into your public Facebook profile? Probably already discussed, but this a big thread, how do spec wearers find it.

Nothing on my feed from mine and I got some clip on spacers for each lens from AliExpress for my specs just to be careful as I was concerned the included spacer didn't give enough of a gap and didn't want to risk scratches.

 

Same as these:

I have an elite strap and with specs there is a knack to putting it on and taking it off but you soon get it.  Only real issue I find is fogging of my specs at times but that usually goes once playing for a bit

I'm dumb, I'm only on case 3 of The Great Ace Attorney, Psychonauts 2 is coming out today and I have a massive backlog of TV, there's an unopened Lego set staring at me and I'm still jonesing to buy myself more entertainment.

There's no question specs are more of an issue with Quest 2. I never had much of a problem with Quest 1.

 

I bought a halo strap for £20 (Aliexpress) recently though and things have improved markedly. I've gone from 30 minute sessions to over 1 hour so I'd highly recommend upgrading the Quest 2 strap if you are having comfort issues.
