I noticed that Extended mode, is 2k (double the 1080p resolution),
however in Pimax mode its locked at the 1080p resolution.
I compared Pimax steam games and Extended mode games, and Extended mode is way clearer hands down!
Is there anyway to get the Pimax mode in this higher resolution, or since its tied to SteamVR is it forced to the lower 1080p resolution?
Nontheless, since Extended Mode is WAY clearer, I want to do as much in this mode as possible.
I have been using VRPlayer (https://vrplayer.codeplex.com/); however, I do not see an option for our head-tracking.
Has anyone gotten head tracking working in VRPlayer.... or does anyone have any other options.
I love Virtural Desktop in Pimax mode... but the resolution is half of extended mode.
Any thoughts? Thanks
Well, I noticed in Pimax mode technically the display is an over-under display… if we could either get that to change it resolution or trick steam just to play the games in a windows then move it to HMD you are right.
I agree, steamvr is limited in its base setup because it’s current hardware is only 1080p… but I think a little hacking will allow at least 2K on the Pimax.
I found two drivers to make regular 2d games like hl2 actually use a sbs 3D model… I think this will work for us:
Gotta work though so I’ll try it after work tonight.
in this forum you have a subjet how to unlock the resolution.
You can read it. in conclusion for me i have download the Pix.exe tools and now i have the extended screen with pimax configure at extended mode to 2560X1440. But for moment if i start a game in extended mode the game video seems crushed
I bought Vorpx is a driver application to create a side by side with the original game. But same for me i can start the game in extended mode with Vorpx. I think it’s configuration problem in my side.
oh cool… that must have been what I did. Before getting my Pimax I ran that Pix.exe… but I didnt think it did anything… in fact I was scared it was a virus haha. But, that must be why I have 2560x1400, I also have a 3k and 4k resolution option…but they dont render properly.
I will also check out all those drivers tonight… I am sure it is just a configuration setting we need to look into.
The fact we can get it extended to way we have makes me certain with the right driver we can hive all these games in 2k 3d… and pretty soon even a higher resolution.
I found this link… that in the past would have worked for us… but I think the new version changed how steamvr is outputted… but if you look in that link you will see it playing halflife 2 in the format we are looking for.
… Man… wish I wasnt at work right now hahaha… 5 more hours to go until its Pimax time again!! ^_^!!
