We could start when Phil is ready.

Glad the move went OK Phil.

thanks,, glad its over apart from unpacking lots and lots of boxes plus a shipping container of everything outside  :-\   I am sure I will be unpacked on day lol
Great to see you back online Phil :) I was not being ignorant just now  online but was driving in VR cannot respond to anything much :'(

The hard part of the move is over , you are in your new home, relax for a bit.

Thanks Wally.
Sorry Wally I was thinking it was a different track that only had one layout. The layout for this Thursday should be The High Speed ring version, we have used it before with the open wheelers.
I thought I had that layout already - I'll check later.
It must have been just me Wally, DaveO has done some laps . Everything is as it should be :)

Something Rolz told me ages ago was turning AA off can actually improve the blur in the distance. At some point I'll have a play around with all the settings and see how I can get it looking at better.
I have been trying lots of things, sometimes the difference is subtle so not sure if better or worse. I will be interested to see what you come up with.
I have just tested and is better with AA turned off :)

Does it look better than the s7/gear vr, I suppose it's easier to get going too?
I have not used Gear VR but with the Lenovo:
The inside car detail is almost "screen door effect" free and track detail several meters around the car also, distant detail is slightly blurry but brake markers come into focus as you approach. I feel that WMR is going to be VR of the future but higher resolution is needed, the tracking is perfect , the immersion factor is the WOW  component.

Going by what you guys are saying I'd like to get one too, but I may have to save my $$$ for a new video card first.

I think it's being discontinued and that's why they're getting rid of it so cheap. If you chose the 'with controllers' option is says Discontinued on the page. Well worth the money though. I did a race with a full AI grid and I did get frame rate drops on my 970 when there were lots of cars around but it wasn't really too noticeable. I may try and join on Thursday and use it.
Please do join us on Thursday Joe, DaveO also is on VR.
Using VR is strangely addictive, I really like how you feel your stomach lift as you go down the big dipper at Laguna Seca :o 8).

Very impressed for 180 bucks. Much better than the Gear VR. 90hz definitely makes a difference. I'm using a the same videos settings I spent a while setting up when I tried the Gear VR and I get a constant 90fps (at least with no other cars around). Just took an F40 around the highlands track. Lot of fun.
Glad you like it and for $180 the price is right.

Yes, I'll set it up as soon as I can. It sounds like a good combo.
Thanks Wally :)
