I'm not trying to shame anyone. Not sure how you come to that conclusion. But the fact that you did take it that way and your rather aggressive way of responding to me shows me you're acting like a fucking moron that gets insulted when exposed to the fact that the world doesn't work the same way for everyone and that different people have different ways of doing things. Your complete lack of empathy is disturbing and rather telling of someone that's either still relatively young, hasn't had much life experience or is a psychopath.

It's hilarious that you claim to "have played stepdad". No parent would ever claim to "play" being a parent. Shows me you've never had kids that really depended on you and that you never had to move everything over to be there for them. I would move hell and Earth for my kids. If you think you'd get there by "playing stepdad", then jesus, I feel sorry for the kid(s) you pretended to care about.

You also get totally riled up when someone doesn't accept that VR is the second coming of Christ. The amount of importance you put into VR and gaming in general shows you're just a kid yourself. If you can't understand that VR may just not be the thing for everyone then that's on you man, not on everyone else.



Aww you're gonna try to analyze me now. Its not a lack of empathy, its far from that. Its more correcting the ignorance that is your posts about a subject you clearly lack knowledge on. Sorry your excuses continue to be the same nonsense people still spout off. You nailed every single common myth about current gen VR. Its textbook dumb. Maybe its a lack of tolerance to stupidity? Could be. You are leaking a shit ton of it at the moment.


We're gonna talk about the step dad thing? Cool. I definitely cared about the runt. She was a good kid. Shame her mother was such a piece of shit. You're 100% right to feel sorry for her. But now you're getting personal and lashing out. Pretty cute. Like, was that really needed? Nah but you're being a petty child and had to try and flex I guess? I could say the same shit about you. You're trying to actually argue over the internet, with someone, and tell them they couldn't possibly care about someone because they used the term "played stepdad" in a thread, about half life, where you are upset/sad/bummed that its VR only. Are you serious right now? Got any other zingers there bud? :olo: :olo: :olo: :olo:


I'm just tired of morons like yourself firing off your dick beaters because you tried a google cardboard or something. Its fitness equipment, its training equipment, its more than you realize, but you keep looking at it from your narrow little scope. Remember here, You're the one basically trashing the thing using your bogus knows jack shit logic, Then getting personal like a child. :olo:

Whatever man. You keep on being toxic timmy. :olo:


Also if you REALLY don't see how your condescending "I have a job, wife, kids" comment came off as fucked up, maybe you should like, idk, work with people more or something.

The only thing stopping me from getting a VR setup is how nauseous it makes me feel when I play it. I don't feel like forking over 1k+ to make myself feel like crap. It is cool though, I love VR but I think they still need to fix something.

I'm looking into starting an AR/VR company. Or at least some experiments for my enjoyment.

Rift S is my go to recommend for people who are new and have a PC and want PCVR primarily. IF you can throw down a grand, Index is going to be the recommend there. And if you can literally light money on fire, Vive Pro + Index controllers + Wireless = Best setup period right now.


Can you do the same rundown for the HW reqs (I.e. processor, gfx, etc.).
My PC is 7 years old and I'll have to upgrade / get a new one.

And: What's "wireless"? Some brand?

Wireless = Wireless adapter.


Hardware side. I mean. This is subjective to some extent. Theres a min bar to get in the door but some people would find the literal bottom barrel unplayable due to jank/frame rates. When I say bottom barrel I mean like 1st gen i7 + GTX 960 4gig (Had a rift on this once, it worked, it wasnt great).

Ideally you'll want to go 4th gen i7 (4790ish) and faster CPU. GTX 1060 (Or equiv) is really enough to play everything out. Theres going to be some content that you'll have to turn down graphics or something but meh. Our living room VR setup is an older 4790 non K, 980 non ti. Runs everything out just fine in med to high detail.

2060 super/2070+ Would be ideal. As would an 8th gen i7 or newer. More so with some of the newer content coming out and if you wanted to "future proof" yourself a bit. Depends on budget, and your end game goal tbh. I tell everyone, spend what you can and feel ok with. If you have a PC that can VR now, try it, see how much its worth throwing money at for you.

Makes sense. Theres a few things you can do about it depending on the content. Shooters are hard in general until you get your "VR legs". BUT teleport movement options are good until you can handle other forms of locomotion. Frame Rate is a huge deal. Spikes can def cause issues. Really just comes down to "do I care enough to play it more". Ginger candy for mild nausea tends to help a lot of people until they get the VR legs thing solid. Just for the love of all that is unholy, don't try to power through. You'll just get more sick, then your body will associate that feeling with that game.

AirCar is forever ruined. >_>
