I have to tighten the DAS up a lot to ensure i get the correct proximity for the distortion profile to be effective.Both, outside edges very distorted, but lines that are supposed to be straight, for example, Chaperone bounds, are not, but move all over the place if my head moves. Makes you feel sick very quickly.. Starts from around about halfway to the very edge of each eye's vision arc..
Yeah, people moan about HTC charging the earth for the Pro but when you get an HMD specific distortion profile - unit calibration not some generic implementation - you start to appreciate it..Please let me know what you think as I was not impressed etc... I wound the adapter in all the way, added further cushioning to the face plate as well as the DAS, tried both short and long side clips and still could not get a comfortable fit. The pro, I simply throw on and wind in and is good..
I simply don;t use them for Elite, not in anyway.. Use the joystick and throttle and keyboard. If I need to do any typing this is the only time the wands come out to use the onscreen keyboard, and even then it is as minimal as can be LOLI actually had to re-engineer the button logic for the steamvr-undistort application when i was recalibrating the firmware distortion profile because the Vive wands were so terrible and it was driving me nuts.
The info panel kept toggling because the center button event kept firing when i was actually pressing the directionals so i just brute forced it on lol..
yup tried just about everything... I have gone back to the Vive pro ( lens mod ), much better in everything except fov... I actually found the txt just as clear in the Pro, mainly due to the no god rays etc..I know what you mean about the blacks. Have you played with the gamma. Sliding to the right doesn't improve blacks but does increase the differentiation between colours.
I still think the text clarit and fov even on small still makes up for it. Comfort is an issue though. The rift is soooo comfy
I wish I had a 3d printer lol ...I had to order mine online... Got 4 instead of 2 and the first one attached broke lolI got the DAS fitted last night with the 3d printed connectors (which worked/fitted perfectly).
Huge improvement on comfort!!! I'll need to try the DAS with the Vive itself at some point, but it's already much better for the Pimax. I also bought 2 foam liners to add to the existing one, and if I can get them secured in place (need to buy some velcro tape), that should be perfect. The additional space takes the Pimax off my nose solving the hard lenses issue (although I'm still going to fit some padding around there as I don't trust it).
It leaves a little light gap, but I find that useful for finding the odd key on the keyboard now and then, and it's not a problem visually.
With the new foam also, it pushes my eyepoint back a little and removes the distortion effect around the sides of the view - It's pretty much not detectable now.
So all in all, a win!
The only thing I need to do now is re-print the adapters in black PLA rather than white!
the wobbling you describe is sign of pimax not processing tracking correctly, turn it off and on again using the button and hope it goes away. it's a software issue and a nuisance, probably will get fixed at some point. Nothing should wiggle when you move head around. It sometimes happens when you put your pimax away then pick it up. Teething problems.Chaperone bounds, are not, but move all over the place if my head moves. Makes you feel sick very quickly..
