    Hello,

    is it possible to use the Flight Simulator 2020 with vorbx?
    and is it basically possible to use Yoke and Throttle in Vorbx?
    many thanks for your help :-)

    Greetings
    Sebastian

    https://hothardware.com/news/microsoft-flight-simulator-is-coming-to-steam-vr-support

    Its getting native VR Support after a few months for all of the more popular headsets. Buy it on Steam to increase likelihood your headset will get support – even if MS drops the ball and only manages to get it to work on limited headsets, I have confidence Valve will get it working just fine with SteamVR and get it working on headsets other than their own.

    From the article:
    The first VR headset that will be supported by Microsoft Flight Simulator will be the Hewlett-Packard Reverb G2. The Reverb G2 was announced back in late May as a “no-compromise VR headset” and features dual 2.89-inch (2160×2160) displays – one for each eye – along with a pair of motion controllers. “We’re starting with them,” said Microsoft Flight Simulator lead Jorg Neumann.

    “There’s some extra work to be done for some of the others. I mean, we’re going to bring it to all the devices – all the common ones. It’s just going to take a few more months after that.” So, all of you Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners out there will likely be supported; you’ll just be waiting a bit longer.”

    We are lucky, because it’s a propietary engine, for a Plage Tale Innocence there is still not support

    I also noticed that the support from Microsoft will be submitted later. have already pre-ordered the HP Reverb and the G2. I am only concerned with the time until it natively supports VR. therefore I would be interested to know if this is possible via Vorbx. at least like some kind of bigscreen.

    Literally EVERYTHING (unless theres some edge cases that break your PC cause its too much for it to handle) is supported with the Vorpx Desktop Viewer.

    To get to this, launch Vorpx as you normally would. Dont launch a game or an application though, just get the program “Started” so its on the bottom right on your screen on the Start Menu bar. Right click it and Select “Start vorpx Desktop Viewer”

    Put your headset on, you will have Vorpx displaying your desktop in Cinema/Immersive screen mode. No 3d, that requires actual ‘support’ for the program you are running; but I use this for watching movies or playing games without support all the time. For instance, Forza Horizon on Gamepass has an awesome battle royale mode, love launching it up with Desktop Viewer with music blaring and just go to town.

    You can also launch Netflix or Disney+ or Hulu, etc and watch movies like you’re on a giant screen.

    Small tip – Increase your Desktop Resolution to whatever you want the video output to be. For instance, Disney+ till only play a movie at 1080p if your desktop resolution, when you start your browser is at 1080p… so even if your monitor doesnt support 4k; go ahead and add 4k to your monitor as a resolution and then Disney+ movies should look much crisper. I believe Netflix does the same thing.

    Good luck! Hope it works well for you until official support for Flight Sim

    Great, thank you for your message. I think I’ll give it a try. I only have a 27 “monitor and then the immersion is not so good for you. And until the G2 and the update is out I will try Vorbx. Alternatively there is still the virtual desktop.
