  1. All I can do is suggest that this file is missing or corrupt. Google for how to replace it and see if this helps. https://www.google.com/search?q=sdl2.dll&oq=sdl2.dll&aqs=chrome..69i57&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  2. Maybe just do what it suggested you do?
  3. @jvicente1971 if you are able to return this for a refund I suggest you do this and buy a Vive Pro full kit. I have both and now my Cosmos is in storage. I may reinstall it again if inside out tracking problems are ever resolved.
  4. @asdfrewq Actually, I have the McLaren version. Same 2.0 as the full kit. Just comes with a bit of orange on things. When I bought it was the same price. I mainly got it because one of my buddies is a real McLaren fanboy and I just wanted to rub it in. Actually looks a bit gaudy imho, lol! You also might want to check out a few online Au shops. I actually bought mine from Scorptec (and I don't think they have anymore in stock) but I think there are also a couple others as well. You'll just need to hunt and peck a bit. Probably still safest to buy from the Vive store, but I don't really know if it makes any difference or not?
  5. @asdfrewq Just my fellow Aussie opinion but if I were you I would consider forking out $aud200 more and get the Vive Pro full kit w/2.0 base stations/controllers while they still have stock. I think it's a better headset and the oled screens look much better in darkish games/sims (better blacks/contrast). Since I got my Pro my poor old pre-ordered Cosmos has been stored away. I may reinstall it one day if inside-out tracking ever meets Rift S standards and probably put my wireless adapter on it. Anyway, your $'s so your choice. I'm sure the Elite would work well though.
  6. Ya, you have to luv Google Translate. It produces this; Hello @tonton I bounce on the post of @TomCgcmfc, because somewhere there for a little reason, I understand your frustration, I also somewhere I tell myself that for the price it is a little cow, and in addition me mine, i already have a few dead pixels, but I'm not making it a disease. I have not said anything until now, but there frankly, it is pulled on the rope, your assessments are perhaps (surely) justified but we all understood that you were disappointed, a good hearer ..... Sorry for our English-speaking friends, but I don't have the courage to translate .......

  7. So the Cosmos Link Box has the same Bluetooth as the Vive Pro Link Box?
  8. @Ors0 Ya, I found the same with getting my 2.0 base stations to go into sleep mode. Actually took a couple of resets to bed down ok. Seems fine ever since. I would not worry too much about the controller white light coming on after a good long (6-8 hr) charge with the supplied chargers. As long as they show 4 dots on the SteamVR void and seem to last a reasonable time (~6 hr use) they are probably working fine. I have noticed that after a long charge with the supplied usb chargers if I unplug them and plug them in again they often produce a white light, but not always. What I do now is charge them with my wireless adapter battery packs (or other similar usb power packs) and this works very well. When the controllers are fully charged the battery pack's power lights turn off which means they are no longer putting out any power. If I press the wireless battery pack button (to restart power delivery) the controller always goes white. This has satisfied my ocd and seems to work well. I don't really know but I think that the supplied usb chargers do not have a proper full charge circuit in order to have them stop charging like most external battery packs do. No real big deal imho.
  9. I have -2.5 with astigmatism but I've found that my good quality high index lens (= thinner/lighter) with rimless titanium frames (140x40mm) fit and work perfect under any VR headset, including Rift cv1, Cosmos, and Vive Pro. The main thing with glasses is to make sure you do not use strong bifocals. Fortunately I have transition lens (no sharp bifocal horizon) with a pretty weak 1.0 bifocal and this seems to work fine.
  10. There never has been a clear distinction made between the Cosmos Link Boxe and the Vive Pro Link Box. The only obvious difference is that the Cosmos LB is supplied by a slightly higher powered 12v2.5a PS vs the Pro's 12v1.5a. It's understood that this is because of the slightly higher power demands for the Cosmos. It is also not clear which link Box is included with the Cosmos Elite full kit. Quick questions; Does the original Cosmos Link Box have Bluetooth capability like the Vive Pro Link Box? Is the Link Box supplied with the Elite full kit (w/1.0 base stations/controllers) the same as the OG Cosmos or is it a Vive Pro Link Box? If you use the Elite faceplate with an OG Cosmos and 1.0 or 2.0 base stations/controllers will you be able to control device settings like base station power options using the Cosmos Link Box? Thanks.
  11. @tonton You multitude (6x on this last page already!) of rants are not helping anyone and are a bit annoying. Maybe give this a rest for a while and just enjoy your Rift cv1. Monitor this forum and if you see any new updates that others report improvements with, try them out and comment on them. Thanks mate.
  12. Mine only does this if I my wireless battery in not fully charged and/or the battery I'm using is not high enough rates (18W for Vive/Vive Pro, 21W for Cosmos. Also, try a better quality thicker usb 3.0 cable to replace the fairly thin cable that came with the Wireless kit. This is worth trying to resolve this yourself because thanks to the worldwide coronovirus problem RMA's may take some time to be resolved.
  13. Well, maybe get smaller frames (mine are 140x40mm and fit well) with high index lens (thinner, lighter). The Vive Pro has slightly more room for glasses and its faceplate slides in/out. These might have been a better fit for you.
  14. Mine (and others) have always done this. After charging, if you unplug the charger and plug it in again you may see the white light. This is not big deal for me. I just make sure I charge them for at least 6 hours. You can also check their battery levels in the SteamVR void (4 dots = full).
  15. Do you use glasses? The focal length for the Cosmos is ~5-6ft so if you need glasses at that distance use them.
