what is your FOV on single screen?
Mine is 45 on a 27in monitor
I also use a TrackIR device.
I've been using 55 on a 27" monitor and pretty happy with that. no tracker though. how do you like the track ir?
I love the TrackIR.
Without it, it will be impossible to use such a low FOV
43 on 22 inches ... sometimes 47
43? How can you set a FOV lower than 45?
been thinking about the trackir, as going to triples or a bigger monitor is presently out of the question. is it a pain or time consuming to start up when getting ready to race?
Very easy to use it but you need a little bit of time to get use to it (you have to turn your head but keep your eyes to the screen).
Some people feels motion sickness : in my opinion because of a bad profile used (how your TrackIR reacts when you turn your head)
oh, sorry ... I was thinking in general .. in iRacing I had it on 47
I run 60 degrees FOV in iRacing, single 29" 21:9 monitor.
I'm interested about a 21:9 monitor, is the feeling good with simracing?
Depends on who you ask I reckon
If you're like me, coming from a 24" 16:9, the move to 29" 21:9 was a smooth sailing, cos the 21:9 monitor is about as tall as a 23" monitor. If you however are used to a 27" or bigger screen then you might feel the vertical size to be on the small size. There's ofc the 34" LG monitor out there but that's pricy as hell!
I love my 21:9 though, for simracing I get an extra 8cm of side vision on each side (16cm total that is) compared to my a 23/24" 16:9 screen, which is great. I love it for Windows too, I rarely run programs in full screen any longer, I usually have two windows open side by side.
But, for simracing, I'll be getting the Oculus Rift consumer version instead, the DK2 is already such a massive upgrade to any screen solution I've ever tested.
