General Discussion / General VR question
December 27, 2016, 03:41:29 AM
I played this game a little with the oculus DK2, and then sold it..  Just about ready to pull the trigger on the CV1.  But i just happen to get not 1 but 2 of the cheap phone VR headsets for Christmas. Two different models, but both are decent quality. I have been doing some testing & it seems the support for this type of VR is growing.. With goggle cardboard & the cost coming down in general.  I stumbled across a site that tracks face/head movements via webcam. If mx-bikes could tie in support for this. It would make VR available to everyone at a fraction of the cost.. Here are a few I found:

http://www.free-track.net/

For the VR software , I found this that works pretty well:

The Oculus CV1 is $600 .. You can get some of the cell VR sets for under $50..  This is one of the headsets i got : https://mergevr.com/

Just some food for thought, And I really think this game is AMAZING in VR.. And way ahead of all other MX games !!

General Discussion / Real Racing Roll Call !
December 23, 2016, 06:03:54 PM
Post up a pic if you really race..  This is an old one for me..  1999 on the YZ400F tank !  This was @ Southwick 1999 original layout.

Anyone else notice this ?  I have been logging more seat time.. and I have noticed while in flight my front wheel is turning reverse..  Its fine when the bike is on the ground..   Really a pain in the ass when trying to jump into a turn, and cheat the wheel into the right direction LOL !!

Piboso,
Thanks for the beta 4 release.. Its a whole new game now..  Playable right out of the gate (no pun intended ) !!   I had no time the last 4 weeks to download and play.. Work and life have been WAY to busy.  Spent about 1 hour today playing. And the entire time I was smiling and not dropping F bombs @ my PC because I could not control the bike or rider !!  I have not tweaked any settings, I calibrated the 360 controller and I was ripping laps ..    So much better !!  Thanks again and keep up the good work !!

General Discussion / Teeds - Your Bars / Racing setup
January 30, 2016, 01:38:10 AM
Anymore updates or progress on your setup ?  I scored an old Rock-n-Ride from the 90s , used for flight sim.. its a 2DOF chair..  I'm modifying that to work with Assetto Corsa & my Oculus DK2. I'm currently running a Logitech G27 wheel / pedals / shifter ..  But I was thinking this would also be cool with a handle bar setup like yours !!

General Discussion / Game supporters vs demo players ..
October 15, 2015, 04:59:42 PM
It would be nice if people had maybe a custom tag on here.. So we know who paid for the full version to support this game... vs. the demo only guys..  Just a thought to maybe add a tag line to members... " Paid Supporter"   Just a thought ...

General Discussion / Setup help .... Make me FAST !!
October 02, 2015, 05:54:41 PM
 Ok,
Really love this game..  I have owned every MX game from the MCM days (1998 )...   I tried MXsim... a few times, purchased the full version.. Never could figure it out.  When mx-bikes came out, I also purchased the game. Its the only way to make things better. Support the developer !! ( Thank you PiBoso ) ...

With that said, I have logged maybe 10-12 hours playing this game..  But I'm yet to be "FAST" ..  I can hardly make an entire lap with out crashing once..   But its sooooo  fun

I'm looking for some good tips on controller setups...  ( I currently run a xbox 360 controller )..
Also, any help on bike setup .. And tips for cornering speed & whips ...
