thanks both, I thought about sun damage but I can't see how that could have happened. It's literally in a case when its not in use. 

I'll raise a ticket with Oculus on it and see what they say.

Not strictly speaking gaming and obviously take this with a pinch of salt from a hardcore Muse nerd, but that free VR Stageverse concert is highly recommended. I think the UK showtimes are midday, 7pm and midnight and it's rough around the edges in terms of UX and the streaming tech varies, but I had a fine old time with it last night. Really good to see the show close up - you can stand back and admire the spectacle or hunt for hidden details like the dancers chatting off stage, the photographer skulking around the background, the audience members smoking, the stage detail etc. etc.

 

Longest time I've spent in VR in one go. Not quite the future, but certainly getting there.  

 

Here are a few photos:

I dunno to be honest. Vader is probably just about worth that money for the Star Wars thrills if you like that (normally £7.99 x3) but I've not played most of that list.

 

I bought epoisode 1 of Vader for £7 odd when I got my Quest 2 recently.

 

A nice touch on the store was went to look at the sale page it noticed I'd already bought part of it so applied an extra discount so I could get the other two for £7 for both.

 

One thing I'll say bout Vader though is you can tell it was originally designed for the OLED screen on the Quest 1 as some parts look really murky and not great on the LSCD screen of the Quest 2. Worth it as an expereicne for the money they're currently offering it though, as there's a thrill to stuff like looking out of the sun roof of your spaceship and seeing a Star Destroyer and stuff like that.

Have any PC-only users taken the plunge of stripping out the Facebook requirements using Oculess https://github.com/basti564/Oculess ?

 

I guess Oculus Virtual Desktop won't work, is https://alvr-org.github.io/ a decent replacement? I dunno why I'm bothering looking at all this, my room isn't getting any bigger.

This works great - but you have to pay.

How do I link to my PC. I really want to try Half-Life Alyx. Also does anyone recommend buying a long power cable so you can play without fear of the batteries running out?

 

You can either link it by a USB cable (Occulus sell a ridiculously expensive link cable but I wouldn't bother) or try out Airlink where your Quest can connect to your PC over wifi, but results can sometimes be spotty.

 

I find long sessions on VR a bit uncomfortable so default battery life is okay for me, but if you were planning to stay under so long it's not enough on a regular basis I'd buy the elite strap with the extended battery attachment personally.

Will this one work?

Also, if you don't want to spend on the Elite strap, I just have my phone charging battery pack in my back pocket if I'm low on juice. Though that will obviously occupy the USB port you'd be using to cable in to your PC here.

 

I'd be interested to see if you could sideload a legit Virtual Desktop apk you'd bought for wireless with Oculess.

Cannot wait! - is it PCVR? 

Oculus Quest 2 unfortunately. It's bloody great though. 

 

In other news my £18 link cable turned up today so I'm going to see how Star Wars Squadrons is and wait for Half-Life Alyx to appear in a sale :)

I can't reccomend Wander highly enough. It's just google street in VR but an amazing thing to jump around the world.

This is my favourite app on the quest. Great if your planning to go one holiday and want to have a look around the area first.

Download and run Steam VR then it'll show up in the Oculus App.

I've managed to get that running. I can't get Star Wars Squadrons to work though. Moose Life boots up fine but Star Wars just has an image/advert in quest, while the game is up and running on the PC. Typical that Minter's stuff works fine :P

Right I've reset everything and it now works. I was a bit disappointed with Squadrons and it looks really bitty and fuzzy, but I'm guessing that's because of the resolution of the Quest headset?

 

Oh well, back to Resi 4 :P

I think it looks absolutely brilliant. The amount of people fucking whinging in the YouTube comments though, fuck sake. 

I totally agree. I’ve been in that world for 2 years now and I’ve had enough and coming back here. 
 

Can’t wait for RE:4 later today. I’m also enjoying Song in The Smoke on my Quest 2.
