  1. I ended up buying a Vive Pro full kit with 2.0 base stations/controllers (now with Etsy Gear VR lens mod and Index controllers) and I'm very happy with this. My OG Cosmos has been back in its box and I doubt that it will ever get used again, even if Vive sent me a free Cosmos Elite faceplate. I wonder how many of these are actually sold? Esp. at aud$399, lol! https://www.vive.com/au/accessory/cosmos-external-tracking-faceplate/
  2. The only pictures I've seen inside the Pro Eye (see YT vid below) looks like the outer lens rings have the eye tracking cameras on them so I kinda doubt that the lens themselves are as easy to replace as the standard Vive Pro. I have the Etsy Gear VR lens mod on my Pro and I really like it. You are probably best to ask Vive Support about this imho.
  3. Maybe try some double-sided sticky tape. For example; https://www.amazon.com/Amazonbasics-Double-Sided-Tape-Dispenser/dp/B07VYK11V1/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Two+Sided+Tape&qid=1613903812&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExQzhLQTVLMkpRMTgyJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNzA3ODI1MUZPSzlZUzcxQzlGSCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDk1Njg3V0lXMjVQQVQxV1JBJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  4. Ya, my Vive Pro w/Etsy Gear VR lens mod and Index controllers is still my favourite PCVR headset for all my flight/racing sims (and most other PCVR apps as well). Unfortunately My Vive wireless adapter is still too much of a CPU resource hog for these, even with a i9 9900k and rtx3090, lol! I still prefer my good old Rift cv1 for most of my Oculus store apps and thanks to the Vive Pro link box on/off button and Oculus OTT it's very easy to switch headsets. I enjoy my Quest 1 for mobile VR, media viewing, and for a bit of PCVR wireless fun w/Virtual Desktop.
  5. I would avoid using any software hacks. Just try adjusting your IPD and play with your faceplate placement a bit. I found I needed to take IPD inwards ~ 1.5-2mm and this helped a lot. I've been using the Gear VR lens mod (bought it from Etsy) without any problems.
  6. Pretty easy, (a) go with the full kit w.2.0 base stations and controllers. (b) do not expect the best VR with any so-called VR ready gaming laptop.
  7. Ya, I agree that this is what's happening. Also, of course the higher res Pro panels also adds to this. Wireless seems to eat my i9 9900k for lunch with my flight and racing sims. To compensate for the 15-25% lower performance due to wireless with these demanding (and often single threaded) apps, I need to drop % pixel density by up to 50%. Honestly, my Oculus Quest 1 wireless with Virtual Desktop seems to manage these sims a bit better. Kinda ridiculous since my Vive wireless adapter kit cost about the same as my Quest 1 headset w/Virtual Desktop, lol! Just my opinion but I think
  8. Honestly, between my pre-ordered OG Cosmos and Vive wireless kit, this has been the biggest waste of aud$2.000 ever, imho. At least my Vive Pro full kit, wired, with Etsy Gear VR lens mod continues to work very well. Only another aud$2,000 spend for that, lol!
  9. While my Vive wireless adapter works pretty well with most games/sims, I still notice a lot more screen door effect (SDE) with my Vive Pro compared to wired. Not sure why?
  10. So you need to login with your Vive account, with your current browser, then start the Vive installer. Why would you do otherwise? Sorry, but maybe I'm missing something?
  11. Normally it has dlc options, same as Steam, although sometimes they take a kittle longer to appear. Like Steam, you will usually need to pay extra for these.
  12. In general, laptops do not always play well with VR. Your specs look ok but not really high end. Still, you should get a decent result even if you need to use lower graphics settings (try reducing your SteamVR % pixel density for starters). The main issue I've had with gaming laptops is heat related. Even if you use a cooling pad laptops do not shed heat very well, esp. when you are pushing them hard with VR. This can cause thermal overloads which will automatically reduce your performance. Often in VR you will end up with a stuttering mess. Last year I moved to a desktop gaming PC
  13. So, did lowering the %pixel density for Beatsaber help or not? Otherwise, I'm not sure why you're losing performance, esp. if it was working ok before. I would not think that Beatsaber would be that hard on your system. Maybe try uninstalling Beatsaber and reinstall it again, or if it's in your Steam library you can run the verify files option. If you are using a SteamVR beta maybe try opting out of it. Also it may be worth right clicking on steamVR in your library/properties/files and run the verify files to see if you may have a corrupt SteamVR file. Of course you can always contact
  14. Pretty basic SteamVR stuff mate. Right click on your SteamVR icon ( like you did to get your performance graph. Select settings then video. You will see the % pixel density (sometimes referred to as super sampling) slider (global). With a 1080ti I would slide this to 100% since SteamVR often seems to want it at 130% for some reason. Anyway try this for starters. Any time you change this you need to restart your game for it to take effect. You can also select this by game as well but I’ll leave that for you to figure out yourself. Good luck mate.
  15. OK, thanks for clarifying that mate. A few months ago I asked about using my Cosmos wireless with the Elite faceplate and a mod (Vibra?) with my Vive PRo base stations/controllers and I thought he mentioned for me yo keep my Pro LinkBox connected for BT to control my base station power options. Maybe I misunderstood. Thanks.
  16. If you already have an OG Vive w/basestations/controllers you should be able to slap the new Elite faceplate onto your OG Cosmos and be good to go with your OG Vive base stations/controllers. Well, at least after you redo your SteamVR room setup. I think the new Elite faceplate still comes with a free copy of Half Life Alyx and probably 2-3 months VivePort Infinity sub (which you can add onto your current sub if you have one). No other cables are included, you can just use your OG Cosmos cables/linkbox. However, if you want to be able to turn your base stations off from SteamVR with BlueTo
  17. Probably means your % pixel density is too high. Try lowering it down until you get back down to 11ms or less. This is what's necessary for a good 90fps framerate.
  18. I see that my infinity Saints and Sinners now shows up in my VivePort Library as Purchased. Nice bonus imho. I've really got a lot of good value out of VivePort Infinity sub over the past year. I keep adding to my sub whenever a sale is on and when I purchase extra Vive gear. Right now I'm good til Aug/2022, lol!
  19. If you are using a SteamVR beta (right click, properties, beta tab) then try non-beta. If not, try beta. Also, maybe try re-plugging all your headset and pc cables (before turning on your pc). All I can think of. Maybe try contacting Steam and Vive support.
  20. You may have a corrupt SteamVR file. Go to your Steam library, right click on your steamvr app, properties/local files tab, and verify files.
  21. Maybe attach your controller to your PC via a usb cable and see if you can update its firmware. Also, make sure your controller is fully charged. Otherwise, contact Vive Support and see if they can help. Good luck mate.
  22. Try disabling any usb power savings you have. Maybe follow these instructions for your wireless adapter settings; https://www.vive.com/us/support/wireless-adapter-cosmos/category_howto/turning-off-usb-power-management.html Hope this helps. If not, I suggest you contact Vive Support.
  23. I had the exact same problem a few months ago with my Vive Pro. Reinstalling all my Vive Pro software including SteamVR and VivePort did not help. What I found solved my Vive Pro audio problem was to uninstall my nvidia drivers with DDU and then reinstall my nvidia graphics, HD audio, and physx drivers. You may get away without using DDU to uninstall these and just update your nvidia drivers to something more current than you now have. I'm using nvidia 442.19 and it works great. Once you reinstall these drivers startup SteamVR and right click on the SteamVR icon window, select setti
  24. So, when are we going to see Oculus Rift S quality inside-out tracking with our OG Cosmos? I think we all deserve a proper response to this simple question.
  25. Ya, that's always a good idea to try first imho.
