12hrs ago, right now it’s 1am. I had to call Fedex at around 9am to reschedule but they delievered so Kudos to them.
The black dots are there I didn’t notice them before but on Skyrim I could see it.
The game runs fine on my 980Ti so far. A few visual glitches at the edges but this headset makes me excited for what VR can hold.
@Heliosurge I’m sure you noticed if you played SkyrimVR. On the Vive if you stand 2m away the eyes of NPCs gets really pixelated. It’s workable with the Pimax at that Distance. I just like the ability to see fine detail. The FOV becomes like an afterthought but once I put on my vive again it’s googles.
Regarding Black Dots, It’s noticeable but not really if you focus on other things. It’s always there but depends on the scene. Skin color tends to play a bigger role.
The good new is your eye’s focus for resolution is relatively low. What I mean is that you generally can only focus on a small part of your FOV. Depending on the image you will either find it obvious or not all.
I haven’t watched movies but the Imax on Bigscreen is at least 5x better than on the Vive. It’s not perfect not even close but it’s much more watchable doesn’t make your eyes hurt feeling like you are watching pixels all day.
Both run fine on my i7 6700K and GTX 980Ti. I haven’t checked CPU temps but my CPU has been a little hotter than usual, idle at around 47 degrees so I’m not sure if there’s something else going on. My 980Ti maxes out at 73 Degrees at 80% fanspeed and still sounds like a jet everytime I get an intense game going.
So far in the same areas I’ve been in skyrim it has kept a 90fps but I have the settings on mid-low just not to put too much pressure on my system.
Bigscreen Beta works perfectly, if you use it mainly for that I’d say even a 980Ti works fine.
I don’t have access to oculus cause I mainly bought a Vive knowing that I would use the lighthouses for Pimax eventually and the same controllers.
I have other games like Sairento or Super Hot haven’t tested them.
I haven’t bought many VR games. The only issue with Skyrim so far is certain areas in doors has things moving on the edges it’s quite distracting.
Sorry I don’t have a deluxe audio strap I really wish I did.
@Petro9986 Hopefully that answers some of your questions.
I’ve had the headset for less than 24hrs so I’m fiddling around with it and I went to sleep just now.
Sorry I don’t own Vorpx, I run Pitool at 0.75, SS at 0.80. It looks miles better than the Vive for me. Runs okish.
@Toba I tried the Total War Warhammer 2 360 Video trailer and didn’t see any Black Dots. But even at 4K 360 vids are kinda blurry tbh. In games is where this thing shines and it becomes more obvious at least to me. If I watch more vids over time I might change my opinion. I need something a little more specific though.
For real anyone who owns a VR Headset even though the Total War Warhammer 2 Launch Trailer 360 vid is a little blurry try it. It feels awesome in VR.
I wouldn’t say it benefits that much mainly because even 4K seems to be stretched to try to fit your entire FOV and more so I feel it’s more video limitation rather than the Pimax.
In games it’s great if you don’t notice the Black Dots. In Imax Virtual Desktop Regular videos feel like watching 720p videos from 5m away(RESOLUTION WISE) it still amazes me I can have an watchable Imax screen.
I’ll update you if I find more stuff to watch, I’m not a video guy sadly. I mainly use virtual desktop and play a few games.
