VR software

Post by Carsten Quint » Sat Nov 02, 2019 3:17 am

Hi guys, getting back into simracing after a break.  Just wondering what kind of software you guys that run VR use to do stuff like pitstops etc.

I use iSpeed for calculating fuel.
Have Voice Attack /DRE but have not got it set up properly.
Right now way too much info being given.
If you're good on the computer you can set it up to only give you the info you want.

Both are free, but to get the most out of them, you need to upgrade them.
If you get them and figure things out, I'll pay you to get mine working right.
I'm just no good with 0s & 1's

Will have to check those out, just got my rift last night and hopefully will get it setup this weekend.  Of course my son tells me he will be using it also so there goes the no kids in the cave rule.

The crew chief is a good one for managing race and voice attack for usual iracing commands

Voice Attack combined with Digitial Race Engineer will do the same thing

Question for you VR folks. Currently running 3 monitors, (1070 card) with a 4th unconnected at the moment. I like having the 3 monitors, so where do I connect the Rift? Do I have to disconnect one of the 3 monitors when I want to use the rift?

I guess I may have worded the question wrong, currently 3 monitors are connected via display port, the 4th was connected via HDMI.  So to connect the rift one of the 3 monitors needs to be moved to HDMI, correct.  While using the rift for IRacing,  does the display show via the rift as well as the 3 monitors.  Just trying to get things figured out before setting this up on Saturday, and youtube videos just show how to plug things in.

thanks

I beleive you will need to configure the monitor to that. Been a while since I've ran triples.
You can also get a DP splitter. I found 1 on Amazon for around $90

You might want to ask on the iRacing forum.
Either VR or hardware

Not sure... I disconnected my triples when I got the VR headset. The VR stuff does show up on my main monitor as well though.

Ok, this has potential if I can get the height adjusted right. I set the height during setup at 5'11", when in game/car I am looking at my feet, if I stand up I can see out the cockpit. Was I supposed to set it up while sitting? Also in the F3 I am off center to the right.

There is a setting in controls to center the hdm.  Look at the bottom right, I think.

Yea, Iracing is good for that. Map a button to your wheel to center HMD. Its at the bottom of the black box and replay keybinds. Once you have that mapped just push the button when your sitting in your rig and in car. It will be good to go from there.

Will definitely play around with it later this evening, if I can get my son off of it.  That "control panel" is that the one on the bottom of the screen when I look down?  Thanks for the insights guys.

sorry for the misunderstanding I thought it was in the oculus settings.  That was the ticket, this will take some time to get used to.  Definitely will not use this until next seasons.  Thanks for all the advice gents it is appreciated.

I'm getting used to it myself. I do enjoy it, but it takes some time to adjust. Biggest thing I found is that I got queasy at first due to everything seeming so realistic without feeling the gforces. Messed with my brain for a bit.
