    Default 2048 sol vr

    Did this make anyone else almost throw up? My son and I almost did because we insisted on continuing to play.

    I haven't tried Sol yet but I'm having some problem with motion sickness for sure. I tried pilot fixed camera for one race and that made me seriously ill. Won't try that again. Need to get used to take some more breaks, at least once every hour.

    The main issue with Sol VR, because the track is going in all sorts of directions (horiz and vert), you find yourself looking at all sorts of directions! And the drop at the end of the 1st shortcut is QUITE A DROP!

    Still, it's an awesome challenge! 😁

    Altima was tough on the stomach as well, all those quick turns.

    Honestly, no. It's one of the most comfortable VR games I've played and I play with the camera locked to the pilot. The closet I've got is a little lightheaded in 2048 zone mode, but it's the kind of lightheaded I really enjoy.

    It's always walking in VR that gets me. That can make me feel really ill.

    If you feel sick, you really are better off taking a break until it passes. You don't want to condition yourself into feeling WipEout + VR = sickness. Are you new to VR or have you been playing for a while?

    I've found the trick to help stop VR sickness is to make sure you move your head so the surroundings change a small bit, even just a small amount.
    It's the disparity of watching movement of what is on the equivalent of the VR horizon, whilst not moving your head, that causes the motion sickness.

    I played VR only a little before. Ill try the head movement. I also realized that I am actually sick to my stomach a little bit for the last two days, so maybe thats adding to it. I do like playing with the first person full view, so Ill need to get used to it I guess

    Surprisingly WO VR is making me less motion sick than GT Sport, maybe it's because I know the tracks so well, or the two games implement VR slightly differently.
    My biggest problem playing VR is with my new glasses, I wear trifocals, and this new script makes things seem out of focus if the glasses are pushed right up onto the bridge of my nose, which is what happens when I put the VR headset on.
    I haven't been using the VR headset that much [hardly at all TBK ] so the headband is still very stiff and doesn't have any play in it, so it's hard to get it right, or to stay that way for more than a lap of a track.

    I just read on one of the community boards that somebody got their steering wheel working with WO Omega and VR headset, I'll have to try it later, I got a Logitech G29 same time I bought the VR HS......if it is actually worth doing? I somehow doubt it.

    Err... I'm not sure why someone would not move their head when playing this game (or any racing game imo). From my experience, both in vr and real life, you would turn your head so you can see where the track is going past a corner.

    Do you move your head when playing on a TV screen whilst racing in other games?

    You might think you do, but I think generally speaking it would be safe to say that you would find that you didn't, as there is no reason to.......you might move your eyes a bit side to side, but not your head.

    Same as when watching a movie, well that's unless your screen is so big you can't take in all the info being displayed on it at once without moving your head, if that is the case you are sitting too close to your screen.

    With VR, moving your eyes won't cut it, you need to move your head just because of the camera tracking changing the POV, that's what's needed to stem motion sickness.
