Pimax 5k+ received! Setup experience (Spamenigma)


#370

84 i can say now that I found my issue is good on both headsets.


#371

give mirrors edge a go in VorpX, can you tell me that widescreen is the prefered aspect ratio now (the game didn’t support a narrow aspect ratio anyway as it letterboxed it), can you check that you have to change the ini file from 120 to 180.


#372

Without having to trawl through 362 replies (I gave up after a few) can we have your opinions of the 5K+ itself? With respect at this moment I don’t care that much at the moment about the setup process but I’m sure it’ll come in handy when I receive mine in twelve years time :slight_smile:


#373

I will do an opinion/mini review write up from my perspective. More time needed to play yet :slight_smile:


#374

SDFFR has the best black levels ever!

I have just tested playing rocket league in VR. First was using built-in steam.theatre, then vorpx and finally big screen. I didn’t adjust any settings in rocket league so everything still pretty much highest. I set PiTool to ‘small’ FOV and SteamVR to 40%.

All 3 scenarios were totally playable, but vorpx made rocket league in 3D! so I actually played a match… we lost btw… :wink: but its playable in all 3 setups including in 3D!

I’ve no idea yet if I’m just being fooled by this game but colours and brightness look a bit better today (made a seperate post to check with others if .90 has changed anything or if its just me).

Had FPS jumping around a bit, 60-90fps, so I need more tuning and probably turn some game settings down. But I actually feel like gaming even in 2D on a big screen in VR is a much nicer experience that it has been in the past.

Introducing the Pimax 0K, now covering the full FOV of human sight. It has the deepest blacks and is light/comfortable enough to use as a sleep aid.


Need your advice on a 2080 model (and got scam'd)

So… after over a week of chasing pimax about the backlight leak fault. I eventually received an email yesterday aplogising for the delay and arranged for support to contact me. Today I’ve been told to send the HMD back to a UK address and once done they will send a new one.

I then asked for timescales, as obviously I wouldn’t want to just return and then wait for weeks for a replacement. And I’m also on holiday for a couple of weeks from next week, so knowing the timing of this is useful!

I’ve been sent another email suggesting it will be 7-10 days and I can continue to use mine for now and return when new one arrives. Will see how that goes!


#378

That’s pretty fair I’d say. Let’s hope new one is perfect, as they all should be.


#379

Please take note of the serial number so that we know if some other poor backer gets the same one in future.


#380

Is anyone using 2.0 lighthouses? My HMD will only track with 1.0 lighthouses.


#381

Which headset did you receive?


#382

A 5K+, no issues at all with 1.0 lighthouses.
