CAGs on Oculus Home or SteamVR?

02 July 2017 - 11:36 PM

We all know from listening to Cheapy, Shipwreck and Wombat that the CAGCasters aren't exactly excited about VR.  I however am.  I've been gaming for as long as those guys, and was excited to buy the Rift right away when it came out.  It was a good time for me since my gaming PC was way out of date anyway so I built a 1080 rig to run it.

 

I have a ton of fun with it.  By far my most awesome gaming moments lately are coming from some of the high quality VR titles that have been released.

 

Anyway, Just wondering if there are any other CAGs that are in a similar situation, hoping to maybe expand their Oculus Home or Steam VR friends lists to allow for some more multiplayer.  If so, maybe we can use this thread to get that ball rolling.

 

Feel free to add me on Oculus Home (Steakfest)

I think my TV sucks for gaming...

19 November 2016 - 06:19 AM

So I've had this TV for a couple years.  Have been using it for general TV and PS4 gaming.  

 

Its a Panasonic TC-P65S60.

 

I was playing Fallout 4 the other day and was reminded of something that had bothered me before, so I started really looking into it and trying to change settings and stuff.  The issue that was bothering me is that when I rotate my view (spin around) in Fallout 4, I notice that everything is "doubled"  almost as if the TV is always showing more than 1 frame at a time.  The faster I spin the camera, the farther apart the doubles are from each other.   It's actually pretty distracting.  And now that I'm paying close attention, basically ALL movement results in this efffect.

 

I've gone through all the possible settings, and there is no "game mode" setting on the TV, and I can't find any other image processing settings that I can disable to get it to stop doing that.

 

I'm pretty convinced at this point, that the TV simply has some sort of processing that involves showing the combination of multiple frames at once, instead of just each individual frame sent from the source.

 

Does this make sense to someone who knows TVs well?  Did I simply make a bad choice with this TV?

 

 The problem is noticiable on every game I try, and every output setting (480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p)  Changing that stuff makes no difference at all.

 

I wish there was some MOD for the TV, replacing a board or something that would leverage the same panel, but get rid of whatever processing the TV is doing to cause this "double exposure" effect.

 

I'm surprised it took me this long to notice, but now that I have, it's really bothering me...
