Oculus Rift DK2 Setup and Test


2014-07-30-Oculus-Rift-DK2-Config-B-LensPrior to using the Oculus Rift DK2 headset, the firmware in the delivered headset must be updated to version 2.11 using the “Oculus Configuration Utility”. This also allows “per user” profiles to be set up to fine tune use of the headset. I tried the “A” lenses with and without my spectacles and the “B” lenses without spectacles and found the “B” set gave the crispest image for me.

2014-07-30-Oculus-Rift-DK2-Display-ModesWhen testing the Second Life/OpenSim CtrlAltStudio Viewer and the current Linden Lab Oculus Rift Project Viewer(3.7.12 Build 292141) that were built for the Oculus Rift DK1 I did not manage to work out which display mode will allow those to operate yet. DK1 legacy mode had no effect, and various settings for display mirroring and extended desktop did not work.

A good quick test that is working correctly in the DK2 is the Helix rollercoaster, but get the Helix_DK2_Beta.zip version or it will not work..
