I ordered a 1 TB SSD that was on sale today from Amazon. Going to hold off playing Asgard's Wrath till it arrives.

I have most of two new computers coming in the mail just need to get the CPU now.
Asgard's wrath will likely be the game I break in the new system on :P
I played a bit of it already but I think the External HDD was causing problems beyond load times. Cause my computer is well above the minimum spec required and there were times it was going well and then others where it chugged.

Anyone have any thoughts on the sandbox combat games and which one might be the best to get? Games like:

Blade and Sorcery
Gorn
Hellsplit Arena
VR Dungeon Knight (is this one of these? it seems like maybe?)

I feel like I'm missing one that is very similar to B&S, but I can't find it.

I'm thinking I may buy one of these soon, especially if I get a Steam GC for Xmas. I'm leaning toward B&S for pure gameplay, but I dont know enough about these.

I'll say this about Blade & Sorcery, it has a really fun physics based combat. But as far as I could tell all it is arenas. There is no levels or progression of any kind. So unless you want to just fight waves of the same enemies over and over, I would recommend holding off for now.

hopping into VR for the first time later this week, and I'm thinking that's a pretty good excuse to finally get to Subnautica and Overload which both have VR support. any reason I should just play through them normally instead?

also planning on getting: Moss, Thumper, I Expect You To Die, and Beat Saber.

Pavlov seems to actually handle knuckles well.
The Aperture Demo just lags whenever my hands are on screen. :/

Subnautica is gamepad only and I heard pretty tacked on, not very good vr support. I think there are mods that help but if this is you first first into vr that may not be the best one to start with.

Huh, I have never been able to do it. Maybe I need to accurately measure my floor instead of just estimating it.
Part of it is kind of just bad design. There's a reason a lot of games let you sort of force pull objects off the floor to some degree. Pavlov needs to be a little more lenient about how close to loose objects you have to be to actually grab them.

I just tried that stand alone GTA5 mod.

It is fantastic. I never tried the VorpX one, but the guy who did this one did a ton of work getting UI elements like the phone to work in VR.

I was able to play the high end settings version on my 1070 ti with no issues other than some weird shimmering artifacting.

Does the Oculus store do Black Friday sales?
Interested in Asgards Wrath, but if I can save a few bucks, that'd be great

There's a Thanksgiving bundle/sale that started today but the selection is pretty bare bones. The sale mentions daily platform deals so hopefully we'll see some better choices as the week continues. I still need to play Lone Echo, hoping that one goes on sale.

Anyone knows if the Oculus Quest via Oculus Link is compatible with the GTA V VR mod?

I don't know if it would be possible...

But is there ANYWAY I could somehow transfer my Skyrim VR PS4 save to Skyrim VR on PC?

I would love to buy it on PCVR while it's on sale and play it there but I don't really feel like starting over again.

Pretty sure you're out of luck. I wanted to do the same and wasn't able to find a method to do it. In the end it didn't matter too much for me since a lot of the mods I installed recommended starting with a fresh save anyway

Hm.... Are the Skyrim VR mods that great?

Also man I see that Elite Dangerous is $15 for the game and DLC... Shit. I might want to get that too.

I'd say like 90% of Skyrim SSE mods work with Skyrim VR, so yeah, they're pretty great. Some mods require VR specific patches but most work without them. I suggest visiting /r/SkyrimVR and looking at one of the modding guides they have there

Skyrim VR mods on PC are pretty great. I added things like "Open Cities" which makes the main holds a part of the world map so you never have to load when entering/exiting. I also added various graphics upgrades to the sky, weather and roads and I also installed the "Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch" which fixes TONS of bugs Bethesda never fixed. There's even "Cutting Room Floor" which adds back various NPCs, items, quests, locations that were built by Bethesda but never enabled in the released game.

I also just came across this video that I'm considering trying:

Hmm... Those do look great. But I guess at this point I think I need more of a overhaul or something if just because I've played through a ton of Skyrim so many times before.

I'm pretty sure the mod that I meant (the one that does not require VorpX) works only with Oculus Rift:

And before you say "Use Revive":

Do you have a link or a tutorial? I have had VorpX since 2014 and the DK2 and always found it janky as all hell. Nothing about that software is worth it and I'd stay as far away from it as I could. Having to email them and get a new code anytime I want to reinstall it is such a pain (even if it's more automated now)

Oh I didn't realize it was Oculus only.

When you hook a Quest up to a PC, the PC thinks it is an Oculus device, right? If the mod requires something from the Oculus SDK, the Quest might work with it as it uses that library ...

So few more questions.

1. Is there any big mods that actually add a lot to Skyrim other than just gameplay changes? Although is there any VR gameplay changes to make it more weighty?
2. How is Fallout 4 VR?
3. How is Elite Dangerous VR?

Is there any other games on sale that would be recommended?

Yup you've got it, can confirm Link works with the GTAV mod, how I've been playing it.

Jumping back into VR since a bit and need some advice on the settings both in Nvida's Control Panel and SteamVR.
Specs:
i7 8086 OC'd to 4.8GHz
1080ti
32 GB DDR4

Index Headset (Also got a Vive Pro)

Nvidia's Control Panel:
Any settings to change to something else other than default?
(besides changing Power Management to Maximum Performance?)

SteamVR:
Applications> I have Custom Resolution set to default 100%
Video>I got refresh rate to 120hz
Motion Smoothing is off


I have FPSVR installed and uninstalled OpenVRAdvanced Settings back earlier in the year since it kept breaking and being weird, I know they just updated it again like this past week, but is there really a reason to have it installed when I already have FPSVR?
I know every system is going to preform a bit differently, but I just want to get some settings down and it feels like there is no concret info on some major settings that should or should not be enabled.

That feeling when you plug in your new 1 TB SSD and it doesn't work and then ultimately realize that all of the issues that have been plaguing me for months was actually my motherboard all along and I need to replace it...

I ended up refunding Espire 1, maybe they'll fix it and polish it up eventually but it seems really rough right now.

FaceBook has confirmed Beat Saber will continue to be supported on all platforms though.
Well the mods are the best part, and we will see how long they stay around. But on a more important note, Facebook is a terrible borderline evil company. I know a ton of people in VR don't care about that, and I dont judge them for it. Have fun! But it completely kills any hype I had in the game. I won't enjoy playing it as much with that in the back of my mind. Also Beat Saber was the one game I showed to people to get them into VR. I'm certainly not gonna be doing that now. Don't wanna throw more business in Facebook's direction.

Playing this GTA 5 mod is like seeing the future of VR.

It is absolutely mind blowing.

The guy who made it did a lot of work to make the UI and other aspects work in VR, but it is still rough. It really needs comfort options. If Rockstar did an official port it would be amazing.

One thing though - I turned off first person headbob in the options, but I still get headbob. Is there something else I need to do to disable it?

Which mod are you using and are you playing on Oculus or SteamVR? Last time I checked the more up to date mod wasn't working very well through Revive.

Alright, so I gave my friend's Rift S a try and it didn't give me crippling headaches so I bought one and it showed up.
I've got the minimum space required for it so I can't play any roomscale stuff. What good things can I play that I can sit down or don't require me to move around much?

Chronos, Lucky's Tale, Edge of Nowhere (Insomniac made game, $10 just today on Oculus store), the new GTA V mod, Elite: Dangerous, No Man's Sky, I Expect You to Die, Euro and American Truck Simulator games, Dirt Rally, SkyrimVR and Fallout 4 VR (with snap turning), Moss, Alien Isolation (Mother mod), Vivecraft (you can use m+kb in addition to motion controls for this).

That should get you started :)
