It's Alive!

Now that my PC has been taken off life support by upgrading to 16 gigs of ram and a 1060, I can play so many more games without causing another chernobyl in my bedroom.

it's the circle of life upgrades ...

Today I discovered that I could run a virtual big screen display using the aptly named BigScreen. This allows me to run Dirt Rally on a virtual 100" curved screen sitting feet away. While not full the full VR experience (which is coming soon) it is pretty incredible.

After that I have re-configured the rig to sit in the corner of my media room and used a little used guest room tv for the display until I get into the Oculus. This makes just ducking in for a game easier.

More work to be done on the wire management and I need to sell my TrackIR now but overall very pleased.

The only negative I can come up with is the least glare on the Oculus is annoying (Vive is supposed to be better due to different fresnel lenses). It's a minor issue in the racing I've done so far though I'm guessing it is be more annoying in a night rally.

Edit: ran a night rally stage and while present I think it was basically a non issue for gameplay

I got bored being too far ahead on Azure Coast in Project Cars and decided to turn around and ram Grahame, which got me DQed. But it did let me catch this shot of Brent stealing a road sign:

That was a lot of fun even if I was driving poorly and missing breaking points left and right. I have never done "the ring" before, that was cool but doing it for the firs time in an Le Mans prototype was probably not my best choice.
