    I can't throw my money at Palmer hard enough. I wish they would announce the price so I know what kind of hole my wallet will have in it when I make my pre-order.

    OT - Any new s on CV1 support from ISI? *Hoping*

    If its the final working version yes, ISI will work on the official support. We all know the guys have made the DK2 worked with it also.

    Last I heard they stopped development with the DK1. They stated that they would support all HMD... but they stopped development on DK2 because the SDK was changing too frequently. And we all know how ISI prefers their development to be at a glacial scale *Wink* J/K... kinda.

    DK2 support did not come from ISI. It came from the modding community. And it was hacked together at best. I am talking about honest to goodness CV1 support, as in a toggle for the CV1 instead of monitors.

    I might have the above wrong as I have not researched my statements and am going off of my memory of previous posts.

    ISI said they will support cv1 but not when. So now it is the time with all facts on the table about cv1 that ISI should make a statement will they support oculus rift on release ? I mean in few weeks preoder will be open so i want to know about buying a 400 euro hardware for reason. And i can tell u why it is important for me. If isi does not support cv 1 on beginning i will wait for htc vive on april.

    I have no doubt that ISI can do it and they will. With no dates announced by Occulus, i wont expect any dates given by ISI. Infact, if u know ISI, they wont give u any dates. They will work on it and release it when they think its ready. Ive learned this since the BETA period and we all should be patient and not being too....pushy.

    my best guess is $399 which is a steal IMO ( I like VR a lot )

    I find there doesn't seem to be so much interest on these Isi forums about VR but then I guess that makes sense because sim racers that use VR are all over at Iracing / AC or any simmer using VR wouldn't purchase rf2 due to zero support

    not quite sure if ISI are still supporting "on or around" release of the CV1 but then again
    I'm so into Iracing now I'm not sure if I really care

    +cv1 units going out to developers ( software houses that have requested them that is) this week with version 1.0 SDK , things are heating up
    what I'm expecting from only what I can gather from hands on opinions etc so I might be a bit off :


    -CV1 not a big jump in resolution from dk2 -but is improved so I'm guessing a small to medium size jump ( dk1 to dk2 was a big jump )
    -screen door still exists but reduced to the point it has to be looked for to be noticed
    -physical unit slightly more compact and instantly noticeably lighter than dk2
    -noticable response improvement both in display & tracking system ( dk2 75hz , cv1 is 90hz )
    -FOV although specs comparable (to dk2) mixed opinions here so I'm expecting similar or maybe slightly better due to optics
    -optics better "lens sweet spot" much larger ( with width adjustability confirmed )

    I'm really hoping Iracing implements the directional sound ....I'm surprised how much sound adds to simulation experiences so this will add a lot I'm sure ( will use the cv1 headphones for less cables etc & ease )

    terrible quality I know ( using phone to record and it's not lined up nicely )
    -when rotate knobs on my real wheel the knobs on the virtual wheel rotate to match -brill





    a very exciting time to be in simulation racing !
