Horizon lock for motion sickness with Oculus? 07 Jan 2017 16:15 #96441

I've experienced extreme nausea while playing City Car with my Oculus Rift and saw some videos online that said being able to "lock" the horizon may help this. Is this setting available and if not does anyone have any other suggestions?

Yep ... I put my Oculus Rift CV1 on for the first time last night as i thought it would help my girlfriend learn to drive better (looking left - right at junction being the main issue with buttons), but i have to say i got motion sickness quite quickly.

A sensation i can only describe "oozing surge" as the car moves of or under sudden acceleration.

I googled this too - and it seems that this HORIZON LOCK feature might help.

I had a go at project cars afterward and it seemed a little better and after googling today will try Horizon Lock on that sim to see if it does make a difference - although, even this morning after a nights sleep i still feel woozy.

I'm not sure about the graphics quality either. On my TV at 1920x1080 it looks pretty sharp, but on the Rift the vertical lines/edges look a little jagged (Not sure if this if purely down to settings ?).

I am using an entry level PC Graphics Card Spec (Nvidia 970 GTX on the Asus ROG PC). At some point i guess i can upgrade to the 1080 ... not sure if frame rate / gfraphics quality in general has anything to do with motion sickness ?)

Although the GTX 970 is an entry-level VR ready card, the rest of your build may not be, in addition to the fact that better cards can always improve VR quality. Often, motion sickness is caused in VR when the motion is off, caused by the use of a machine not ready for VR. If it is completely VR ready, motion sickness can still result due to slight delays, which should improve with improved machine performance.

Do you think that with your system specs that the game in both triple-monitor and VR mode would run pretty flawless or would you suggest an even powerful video card than the RX480?

We will try to improve this in future versions.
