Pitool 1.0.1.121 Beta Test Release for Brainwarp 1.0


#587

The contrast and brightness adjustment really brings things back to life but i feel it’s a double edge sword. I do notice some loss of details and in some games the text or item becomes unrecognisable.

Does wonders for movies tho.


#588

It needs to be added to the app profiles we ve been requesting for months.


#589

So what is the general consensus on the best (for majority) contrast and brightness adjustment settings for the 5k+ so far?


#590

I’m not sure there is a consensus. It likely depends (a lot) on the game and personal preference. I’m using Low brightness with a -1 brightness and +1 contrast. I think it looks great in Elite Dangerous.


#591

That’s the setting for me as well.


#592

So if I use normal brightness, I might need to do -2 brightness and +2 contrast you think?


#593

Like others have said i’ve found that it comes down to different settings for different games. Will be great when we have game profile functionality.


#594

Problem I can see is games will likely need to be launched from pitool to apply settings. Meaning we will need a pitool dashboard plugin for steam if you want a vr interface to launch from. But maybe not.


#595

Sort of. The brightness/contrast +/- controls adjust the RGB values sent to the panels. This darkens areas, but does not deepen the blacks (which are dark gray, because LCD).

A “Low” brightness setting dims the LED backlights. That darkens the blacks, but also darkens the whites. I think ED benefits from lowered backlights.

在我的5K试一下,:ocean::ocean:Thank you!

@Sean.Huang
Can we have an update on the next version?


#598

The team is on the state May holiday and return Monday. We are testing a new version internally that includes some changes that affect the XR (and more).


#599

Hopefully.

I tried out a lot of games, seems to all work(i like the new update for the contrast/brightness).
I have not tried MineCraft in 2 years, so wanted to try Vivecraft, and it wont load on beta(1.0.1.121)
But it does on the none beta one(v1.0.0.109).

Only problem is, i am using Nolo VR to play(have to use the latest Version and drivers).
it works, but i don’t think the none beta version(v1.0.0.109) will support it.

As the beta stated it supports the newer Drivers of NOLO_VR.

Wanted to let you know.


#600

Thank you for the information. I’ll make sure and pass it along.


#601

Lone Echo is broken (very dark).
Google earth VR launches but doesn’t show in headset.


#602

Any chance they can start posting ahead if time on these absences due to holidays?


#603

I opened at ticket with them about this they said they could reproduce it and it would be fixed in about a week so hoping it will be in the next beta


#604

Interestingly @Willyfisch can get Google Earth to run a. It on Amd gpu


#605

It still has some issues to work out.


#606

Any chance on getting Amd & pimax to collaberate on updates on Amd gpu?
