  1. At the title says, I'm pretty annoyed with HTC Vive/Cosmos as a whole right now. From day one we have had tracking issues and still have them. There is no "Upgrade kit" in the foreseeable future with a rebate for current Cosmos owners to upgrade to an Elite system. Since our face plate & controllers are useless. It is more cost effective to purchase a new Cosmos Elite than to upgrade. Feels pretty shitty to be honest. @C.T. @stvnxu
  2. It's $1200aud'ish in parts to upgrade your Cosmos to an Elite... Talk about getting bent over, pissed off is an understatement
  3. Really wish I returned mine now just so I could pick up an Elite. Or I wish Vive offered something for cosmos owners that want to upgrade since the tracking sucks. Cheers
  4. I use the Anker Powercore Speed 10000mah & 20000mah Batteries as they are output 2A @ QC3.0 12v (24w) Be careful a lot of QC3.0 batteries only output 1.5a @ 12v and are only 18w The original cosmos battery is 1.75a @ 12v so 21w and that's what is recommended. Cheers
  5. Maybe you guys need to read that giant red bar at the top of the screen. "Limited Responses - Chinese New Year 1/23-2/3" Cheers
  6. I've got a good quality usb 3.0 A-A cable on it's way, 1.5M because 1m is too short for me. Will add that to the list of tricks and see if there are any improvements. Cheers
  7. It's PLE, It's not a price increase it's just them moving the old packaging. That's all it is. PCCG, Scorptec, Mwave, MSY etc.
  8. Because of the model number change due to the packaging change, Check the model number on both of them in the listings. They are the ones listed in my post I linked you above. It's PLE being idiots, that's all it is. Cheers
  9. Try to pair them again. https://www.vive.com/eu/support/cosmos/category_howto/pairing-the-controllers-with-the-headset.html cheers
  10. I've got these, Definitely not as thick as the OEM Foam. But they moved me into the sweet spot and are super comfortable. (About 8hours use so far) Squish them a few times. Cheers
  11. Pushing, It is fairly well sealed and you can feel the air coming out of the vents on the lower half of the unit. I didn't like the 40mm fan mods and how they were just blowing over the device or looked bulky, This mod ducts the air through the vents creating static pressure internally. Have also partially made a single 40mm version however I can finish if people are interested. This could also be powered via 5v from the USB-C connector on the HMD or using a USB-A Splitter and getting 12v from the battery directly. Up to the user what they want to do. Cheers
  12. Just wanted to share this https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4124195 HTC Vive Wireless Dual 30mm Cooling Fan. 2x - 30x30x6mm 12v Fans @ 7.5v (Low speed fan resistors I had sitting around) 1x - 1.3 ID x 3.5mm OD DC Jack This was built due to Grey/Blue screen flashes on the HMD, Falling through the world or slowly losing tracking on the Vive Cosmos during wireless play. Looking at logs in C:\ProgramData\Vive Wireless\ConnectionUtility\Log The HTC Vive Wireless would start with temps reporting [2020-01-19 17:36:58 +10 0xB70 INFO LOG] M_Temperature=36, R_Temperature=33 -After 20minutes play time- [2020-01-19 17:56:46 +10 0xB70 INFO LOG] M_Temperature=91, R_Temperature=62 After the modification was performed the log output reported [2020-01-24 14:45:39 +10 0x4394 INFO LOG] M_Temperature=30, R_Temperature=23 -After 20minutes play time- [2020-01-24 15:05:19 +10 0x4394 INFO LOG] M_Temperature=48, R_Temperature=49 Both of these were experienced with the same room temperature of 24c and 20minutes of playtime in Beat Saber. After extended use it originally used to display temperatures reporting [2020-01-07 18:19:42 +10 0x32B0 INFO LOG] M_Temperature=99, R_Temperature=63 [2020-01-07 18:19:52 +10 0x32B0 INFO LOG] M_Temperature=100, R_Temperature=65 [2020-01-07 18:20:22 +10 0x32B0 INFO LOG] M_Temperature=102, R_Temperature=66 With a grey/blue HMD flicker every few minutes. This has cut cut the temperature by half and resulted in no drop outs after hours of use. Cheers
  13. Next thing I'd like you all to test, please log/monitor your CPU usage while using the HTC Wireless while it is having temperature issues. If you can all provide some of that info, We can narrow down the issues & specific faults to 2 things. CPU utilization for the VR Compositor as it pipes the signal to your HMD as well as the Vive wireless overheating. Cheers
  14. Something I haven't seen mentioned here, Check the temps of your Wireless. C:\ProgramData\Vive Wireless\ConnectionUtility\Log Open up your log and look for M_Temperature, Post an exert of when it starts, and then 30minutes later. It'll probably be hitting about 90c and Overheating. Causes controller tracking to lag, sometimes grey screen flashes & other times you straight up fall through the world depending on the game. Cheers
