  1. I did try this a while ago but Time Crisis ran very slowly for some reason. It could've been the image I downloaded as I couldn't get my head round setting it up on my own!
  2. Until recently I was using a 60" 1080p Samsung plasma from 2013, which still had great picture quality but I definitely had my money out of it. I wasn't planning on upgrading, but saw a good deal on the 65" Samsung Frame (about £600 after cashback) and thought it was better to swap while the old TV still worked as I might be able to get some money for it. In the end I sold the old one for £200, so the £400 upgrade was a no-brainer really. I wasn't expecting it to make a huge difference, but after using it for a couple of months, I'm glad I switched. The old TV was like a mirror, while this one is designed to look like a painting when it's not in use, so the reflections are minimal. I've had a few Samsung TVs over the years and this has the best picture of all of them. I did have to jump through a few hoops to get 4k120Hz working though - when I first got my Series X, it would give a black screen when bumping up the resolution, but was fine at 4k60Hz. I did some digging and found a huge thread on the Samsung forum where one of the firmware updates broke that functionality. The fix was to download a patch file and install it via the service menu on the TV - which needs an older remote, not the one that comes with the TV! Not great but once I applied it, it worked perfectly. One bonus thing I didn't expect is that I haven't had any form of motion sickness when using this TV, which I would get after longer gaming sessions on the older one. I put that down to the smoother refresh rate.
  3. If it's a stuck pixel, Oculus should replace it for you. They do ask for photos though, which is really hard to do given the size of the pixels! The annoying part is losing save game progress on the replacement unit. I tried backing up saves via sidequest but either it doesn't work or I did it wrong. All games should have cloud saves!
  4. These are probably the best biscuits I've ever tasted, and I've tried a lot! They are £1 at Tesco if you're a clubcard holder. Seriously, try them!
  5. I tend to pick the freedom of wireless over the better graphics of a wired connection. Having said that, Airlink/Virtual Desktop is the best of both worlds if your wifi/PC can deliver good results. Mine works pretty much perfectly using the default Vodafone fibre hub, with a wired connection to my PC. Quest is connected to the 5GHz band only. Even then I mostly play Quest native games, as half the time I can't be bothered turning on the PC. I only really miss the better graphics on Robo Recall and Walking Dead.
  6. I don't know if it's a gmail thing, but I found that occasionally my emails wouldn't reach them at all for some reason. I only found out when I checked the ticket status online and found they closed it due to no response from me! The replacement is basically the VRCover set. I prefer it as it's easier to keep clean.
  7. Playing Arkham Asylum on the 360 when this part happened was pretty alarming to say the least..!
  8. Thanks for this, I've been after one of these for a while. I wanted the Elite strap for it's sweat resistance during exercise games, but my weird head doesn't fit the back properly. The top corners don't touch my head so all the weight is on the bottom strap, which hurts after 10-15 minutes. I improvised by using the thick pad from the VRcover faceplate stuck to the back, which does solve the issue but it's not the tidiest solution!
  9. Ginger is supposed to help. For me it's just a case of building up to it gradually. I still can't handle full locomotion if it's quite fast, but I'm fine with slower movement (e.g In Death: Unchained).
  10. True, those fat Cupids are annoying! The furthest I’ve got is the abyss but got blown up by a skull. I have no idea how people are getting the high scores on the leaderboard, it’s insane! I managed to get over 100k today when I realised that going into the pit gives you loads of points, but it’s risky. Hate those dementor bastards when they sneak up on you!
  11. I've been hooked on In Death: Unchained lately. The bow and arrow roguelike gameplay is excellent, and it looks very good too. It's rock hard though, most times I fail at the first boss level! Makes you feel like Legolas when you make three headshots in a row though
  12. I can recommend Ritchie's Plank Experience and videoing people's reactions to it. There's not much in terms of gameplay but it's a good crowd experience, especially if you set it up with a real plank. There are a few other modes where you fly around the buildings so it's not completely a one-trick pony.
  13. You need to enable developer mode for that, which is done via the phone app not on the Quest. The Oculus desktop app shouldn't need that though. Have you tried different USB ports? Also check device manager in Windows as sometimes it doesn't pick up the link cable correctly. Mine sometimes shows up as an unrecognised USB device, but if I delete it and rescan for new hardware, it picks it up OK.
  14. They should fit - the Quest 2 doesn’t have the removable rings but it does have the indents for lenses to clip onto. I was able to use my AMVR lens protector rings from the Quest 1.
  15. Are you using the glasses spacer? That will move the lenses out slightly. Also there's a way of setting the lenses in between each IPD setting, so maybe if you try the 2.5 setting it would work better
