I was looking forward to 120hz on the 5k+. It didn’t show up in my pitool. I’m wondering if anyone who didn’t have immediate success has since got 120hz to work since it came out.
Can you change the color of the front light on your headset? For me the Pitool UI didn’t show any of the new settings at first until I restarted Pitool and the headset. However once I saw the settings for the front light color I also saw the 120hz.
You can also look at this thread and check the manufacturing date of your headset to see if your headset seems to have been manufactured around the same time as others that don’t have 120hz. Here
Yes. Same here. Had to restart the service for it to work (I rebooted, but it should be sufficient to restart PiServiceLauncher service and headset).
Same issue here, I can change the HMD colour. I tried updating the firmware manually, updating windows, updating my rtx 2080, clearing pimax installation including the files in app data and many reboots.
Edit: my hmd was made in 2018
It has to be because the firmware only enables 120Hz for specific revisions of the 5K+ headsets.
@Doman.Chen can You tell us if that’s correct? And if yes, if 120 Hz mode is supposed to be coming to all 5K+ revisions?
I have an 8 47 - I’m able to get green. I do have some thing which people might consider black dots on the screen; I’m not totally sure.
Could you check the black dots thread here (5k+ Black Dot Pattern Thread. Post here with pics) and confirm whether you have them?
Mine was produced 8 47 (backer 545) too, it definitely has the black dots and the first rev (flimsy) housing and no option for 120Hz. I can change the color Pitool V220.127.116.11 and firmware V18.104.22.168
I have tried rebooting computer, restarting and unplugging headset, reinstalling with Antivirus disabled, changing FOV S>N>L and back again, Changing backlight low, disabling each and every setting and reenabling them. My headset definitely does not have the option of 120Hz…
I could live with the flimsy housing and the black dots, but if they give 120HZ to everyone else and punished for being one of the first backers, that will be unforgivable…
Backer 206 here with working 120hz mode
Could you also confirm if you have visible black dots?
my 5k+ has 120hz available, serial says 2019 week 4
Thanks. Your manufacturer date is 2019 07th week. (Week of Febuary 11th)
203600 9 07…
So yours is newer than the ones reporting no 120hz.
Sn 20260084900174 here, no 120hz mode
You’re 2018 49th week.
We don’t need the full S/N
Just the 7th, 8th, and 9th digit.
It would be nice to try 120hz - it’s not what I backed, but would have been a welcome feature. I’d say this is pretty much (sadly) solved. Thanks for the help everybody!
I can also confirm, mine is 2018 49th week, and no Joy
Really hope there will be a easy fix for it thou.
5k+ here made in 52nd week of 2018. I can get 120hz on mine. I don’t use it because it’s way too dark, and I can’t get anywhere near 120fps in any of the games I play so I don’t see any difference between 120 hz and 90hz.
Yeah, it’s probably a bad idea to post the whole S/N.
As @risa2000 mentions below, just leave out the last 5 digits:
