Ordered the Ocolus Rift

  • With cockpit sims you can get sick two different ways. If your computer can’t keep up and you get stutters, you may not even realize it’s happening but it can be a nausea inducer. You might want to keep an eye on frame rates until you know they are good and adjust settings as necessary.


    The other cause is just having what you see be moving when you don’t experience the same thing. The more cockpit you have around you and the gentler your flight, the less tendency for feeling sick. Aerobatics in the Bücker would probably be worst for that but are a kick.

    Also, based on my experience I would suggest short initial flights with time breaks in between. Don't fly around for 45 minutes or more in shear amazement like I did, not realizing I was slowly feeling the effects of VR sickness?(


    It's a real phenomenon (motion sickness without motion). I had to put the HMD down for a couple of days, then start out with brief flights until I built up my tolerance (VR legs). https://www.reddit.com/r/oculu…i_just_played_30_mins_of/


    Now I can fly for hours with no issues.

    Love it! No going back to 2D monitors for me. Can't wait for higher resolution (I have a CV1).

  • I also wouldn't recommend inverted flight right off the bat. ;)

    haha I forgot to mention that part. It didn't help that I was doing aerobatics in my DCS P-51D, LOL

  • Thanks Redtail, Is it worse than sea sickness?

    I got sea sick for the first time while on a cruise ship several years ago. It was horrible, I had to sleep it off for a few hours. Much worst than my VR sickness.


    Fortunately the VR sickness subsided and I've been able to enjoy the VR experience ever since, because I was really worried that it would be a dealbreaker.

    That was why I waited a few days before trying it again. Just didn't want to rush back in and be disappointed.


    Now as far as sea sickness. It's never happened to me on small boats, only the cruise ship. I've only taken one cruise after the first, and I took Dramamine ahead of time ;)


    I've only been airsick once, and that was during my first aerobatic lesson a few years ago. I went up on an empty stomach in order to avoid vomiting.

    Instructor said that wasn't a good idea.


    Well, I didn't vomit LOL

    I remember handing my instructor the bag I had filled on my first aerobatic lesson, after that I was never airsick again.

  • Were you able to get the software to install successfully? If not, do you have an antivirus other than the built in Windows Defender? If so I'd try temporarily disabling it and running the installer again... might be blocking something or preventing the software from adding necessary firewall exceptions.

    Finally have it installed, still not able to run AFS2? working on it.

  • I can't remember if this is necessary, but I think you need to go into settings on the Oculus software and enable the option 'allow unknown sources', since AFS2 isn't from the Oculus store. After the first time you get it to launch in VR mode, it should show up in your library within the Oculus software.
