VATSIM & FSX Steam using Oculus Rift
« on: April 03, 2018, 07:04:53 pm »
I've never posted here for help but, could use a hand in locating the proper channels of instruction. I have successfully been using vPilot as ATC connection with (non Steam)FSX and then went to the virtual world using the Oculus Rift goggles which requires FSX Steam Edition. Though the FSXSE experience is amazing for flight, I'm not as impressed with the interactive ATC yet. I'd like to get back to the communication with live ATC if it is possible. That certainly, would make the experience as true to life as possible. Can anyone offer help with this?

Seems to me I just wrote this on the VATSIM forums... but...  I'm not sure I understand your question.

I sent this on Facebook earlier today, but in case it's helpful to others.

Have you considered running vPilot on another (non-VR) computer, such as a laptop? You can interact with vPilot in the "non virtual" environment and leave your flying PC entirely in the VR environment. http://vpilot.metacraft.com/Documentation2.aspx#networking
