Re: VR Feature Requests

Two features requested for VR: 1) A feature that is the opposite of the Gaze Selection. The cursor would be controlled only by the mouse and would not be affected by head movement. In a complex cockpit with a lot of switches/controls, it is hard to hold my head steady enough to select controls reli...

Re: p3d v4.4 FPS

JorgenSA The frame rate in movie theatres is 24 FPS, on TV in the so-called PAL system it is 25 FPS, and in the NTSC system it is 30 FPS. The frame-rate chasers that want more than 30 FPS are deluding themselves, apply a frame rate limiter and go for a smooth experience - which is what it is all ab...

Re: VR zoom in 4.4, HMD recalibrate origin.

Behaviour is the same (or very similar) with the stock Blackhawk (Battlehawk) panels. If I resize the PFD, close the panel and reopen it, it goes back to its original size / ar.

Re: VR zoom in 4.4, HMD recalibrate origin.

I've just tried placing the panel, then saving the scenario. When I load the scenario up again, the panel appears (I think) twice as wide as it is tall, so it does not save as required. Since I've wandered off from the original post, just a reminder that this is all in VR. This is what appears in th...

Re: VR zoom in 4.4, HMD recalibrate origin.

If you move and size at runtime with keyboard and mouse, and save a scenario, the changes should save into the scenario. You could then peek into the scenario xml for the values and edit the panel config. Are they not saving and loading? Is the issue specific that set of aircraft panels, or is it h...

Re: VR zoom in 4.4, HMD recalibrate origin.

"As for the re-calibrate issue"
Please ignore this. I think it was just me getting confused, and it's working as expected. Sorry.

Re: VR zoom in 4.4, HMD recalibrate origin.

I continue to try and get a better experience with the Majestic Q400 in P3D(4.4). I am now trying to change the placement of some panels in VR. However the 3dp_size = 1,1 doesn't seem to work as expected. I would suppose that the parameters would be X,Y (but this is not specified in the Learning Cen...

Re: VR zoom in 4.4, HMD recalibrate origin.

Many thanks for replying (and on a Saturday! - please go and enjoy your weekend, and leave this for next week). "Do you have zoom enabled in the vr settings?" Whoops sorry - yes that was it. I did a complete wipe and reinstallation and had completely forgotten that this setting even existed. In my d...

VR zoom in 4.4, HMD recalibrate origin.

The ability to zoom in and out in VR appears to have stopped working for me. Has something changed? Has something also been changed with centre view in VR? It only seems to recalibrate in (head) yaw. If for some reason I lose pitch, it won't recentre in pitch? Sorry if it's me doing something wrong.

Re: VR V4.3 - Using Voice Controls

Thank you for pointing out this functionality. Very handy. Is there an option to assign a button / keystroke to hold down (PTT) so that it only listens when required? If not, people who are using other products (e.g. I use VoxATC) that require voice recognition might have issues when using this feat...

Re: VR zoom issues

Sorry for not answering your question, but I'll describe what I've done in case it helps. I'm very happy with how DCS does VR zoom and have tried to emulate the same system here. What I did is assign a keypress to ZOOM_PLUS and another to ZOOM_1X (through fsuipc): 118=90,8,65719,0 -{Z: Press=ZOOM_PL...

Re: IN VR: is there any way to use knobs / switches without having to look at them?

On a related matter, it is extremely frustrating that when I attempt to right-click on a switch / knob and miss, control of the cursor is lost. I assume that this is because the context menu pops up (but not in VR!). I realise I can just click again, and I (usually) get it back - still, things reall...

IN VR: is there any way to use knobs / switches without having to look at them?

Is there any way to do this? I am trying to turn knobs on the MCP on the Q400 which affect settings on the PFD. This is extremely impractical as I have to keep looking straight at the knobs while turning them (cursor is linked to head motion), and the PFD is not in my line of sight. I was rather hop...
