    I would guess there are a lot of people to thank for the improved and continuing improvements to VR but without your coding a few months ago we wouldn't have this beautiful experience in VR today. For me AC is still the best VR experience. Without AC I probably wouldn't know about Oculus Rift or any VR.
    You had squeezed in time somehow at a very busy stage of counsel and Porsche release, counsel even being pushed back at the time. I could only imagine your day to day life then.

    Thank you Stefano.

    Same. Without AC being able to run VR, I wouldn´t VR at all. Tried numerous demos and VR games, AC is the only reason I´ve kept my CV1. And no, I did not vote for VR as 'dev for a day' :p

    Bellissimo!

    If AC didn't have VR support I either wouldn't have an Oculus, or would feel like I'd wasted a lot of money. For me it's worth every penny for AC alone. Current implementation is more than satisfactory, but I wouldn't complain about any improvements/additions of course :p

    Exactly, +1

    I admit, i didn´t think kunos would manage to offer the single vr-experience that is worth to be used not just to be tried.

    Probably the best looking race game in the rift atm.

    A general tip: Use Virtual desktop in order to see the menu in AC. If it doesn't show up after a race session: Press the home button on the oculus remote twice.

    Doesn´t the use of virtual desktop influence overall performance? I´m asking, because i stopped using it because of 2 issues.
    First:I once had the impression that AC ran less fluid.
    Second: It didn´t work after ending a session.
    So pressing the home button on the remote twice restarts it?
    Does that work with both the steam and the oculus version?

    Would be nice to hear that those problems don´t exist anymore, because i don´t have no monitors @ my racing rig anymore.

    And many thanks to Stefano and Kunos, VR+Assetto Corsa is just glorious. It's the only reason I've kept my rift.

    Thank you Kunos for making me invest:
    • thousands of hours in AC I otherwise would have spent on useless tasks
    • thousands of euros on sim racing equipment I otherwise would have spent on useless junk :D

    This is meant as a joke guys, don't take it too seriously. AC can be enjoyed even with a basic hardware setup and even if you don't have too much time to spend in it.
    I'm glad the game is SO GOOD that it drove me into buying new equipment to enjoy it a bit more and I'm glad I had the free time to enjoy it :)
     
  17. Rift Racer

    Indeed... If it weren't for AC in VR I wouldn't have bought:
    • Gaming PC (£1,060)
    • Oculus Rift DK2 x2 (£600)
    • New T300 Wheel (£230)
    • Oculus Rift CV1 (£540)
    • Upgrades for said PC (~£200)
    And I'm now contemplating a new graphics card, better pedals, and maybe even a DD wheel if I win the lottery.

    I'd probably still be playing with my 720p TV and laptop.

    But I certainly wouldn't be any better off financially... It would've more than likely went up in smoke if I hadn't spent it on that stuff... so I'm glad I've got something to show for it instead of just a sore throat (even if it just big kids toys).

    I know I have been thanking a lot lately but sometimes I have to break myself from negative point of view of what could be better.
    I would guess Stefano to be somewhat of a perfectionist. He needs to understand that he could work on this for ten years and it still wouldn't be perfect.
    When trying VR in Pcars I couldn't help but notice the influence AC has. I wonder if Pcars multiple delays were because of AC's new approach to physics.
    I bet none of the big sim developers back in the day would have thought AC would be the top dog to beat today.
     
  20. Pcars sold ten times more than AC, so technically it is top dog. Just sayin'.

    The devs behind Forza and Pcars didn't make the physics simcade because they don't know how to make a true simulation, they made them that way deliberately. (and apparently that is the correct path to take business wise, when looking at the number of copies sold vs the sales of actual sims.)

    though I'm only a triple 3DVISION guy (triple projectors) I underline the great fun I have, appreciating all the hard work from the devs like Stefano. After 2000 hours in AC i can confirm AC is the most real race game ever. AC is the reason of buying all the gadgets I bought and build the last 2 years. One of the greatest game changer was shifting to 3DVISION CinemaScope, 180° constant view, 270° view in total. 3DVISION (which is outdated and on the way out) is thankfully still supported by Kunos, you feel part of the game as VR does (VR is "better" for sure due to 360° view) - anyway 3DVISION mixes game and real world action together.
