So, the story here is (it is a TLDR story don’t worry):
I bought an Oculus Quest a couple of months ago. Enjoyed the library of games.
Then looked to getting into PCVR.
Didn’t want to spend $$$$$ on a VR capable PC.
Saw Shadow. Bought. Waited. Activated.
Installed Steam, added 256GB extra HDD. Bought & installed Half Life Alyx.
Installed Virtual Desktop on the Quest, then sideloaded to get full capabilities.
Fiddled with settings in Virtual Desktop to get best experience. I am like 30 or so miles from the datacenter so latency is a non-issue (SO HAPPY)
I am probably, right now, half-way through the game. Only complaints I have with the VR experience is when my internet (xfinity) has a wobble and the network lags causing 2fps for a few seconds.
Sometimes need to reboot the Quest / Shadow to jump back in without lag issues.
All in all, experience is at an 8/10.
Most of the time it is a 9/10 due to my good internet and close proximity to the datacenter.
What are other peoples experiences with VR and Shadow? Shadow is literally my ONLY way to experience PCVR as of right now. Thank you Shadow.
P.S: I hope the beta for the Quest <> Shadow thing will be open to more people in the near future, i’d love to try it out.
