Another tip, to stave off nausea if you are prone to it...

Get a fan gently blowing on you. A large contributer to nausea is the "hot" feeling you sometimes get and I always use a fan when playing which helps keep me cool.

Also aids immersion if you're playing anything where you are moving, like riding a horse in Skyrim, or flying around in Ultrawings.


When starting out it can take some a few tries to get the ol VR legs. The first time I played Farpoint I felt a bit woozy.

Main thing is: DON'T try to power through it, take lots of breaks initially and your brain will eventually get used to it. If you try to power through it your brain will always associate VR with nausea.

Thanks!
Why?

It's specific to PlayStation I would have thought?

I'm sure we can have a thread in both forums?

The idea is to make this a "sticky" as it has questions answered that are oft asked repeatedly by new owners of PSVR headsets.

As it stands this thread was on page 3 of the Playstation forums so in essence lost unless actively searched for.

If you find your Move controller tracking is a bit off (floaty hands or whatever) press power button on your Move controller for 10 seconds to power it off, then power it back up and all should be solved.

You should have no problems picking up guns off the ground in Superhot for example. Holoball is a great game to use as a way of defining your play space. It's worth it for the config screen alone.

- remember your camera doesn't need to be beside your tv, so position it anywhere you like where you can ensure you have sufficient space to move

- if you have reflective surfaces behind you when facing camera cover them with some temporary sheeting. I have a 60" framed photo behind me and my tracking always goes a bit awry after a while. Covering this over with a few plastic bags fixed this. Easy to take down and put back up without having to move frame.

- when doing the light tracking during initial setup try to pivot the headset around the same distance from the camera at all times. PSVR Frank put up a video about this a few months ago as a way of improving tracking
Would you mind taking a pic of your set up and posting it here?

Playing last night and nothing really felt right, id be especially interested in seeing the tri pod you're using and how you have it attached to the camera.

What is that piece of crap the give you to hold the camera out of the box?

I use this one from Amazon and I 3D printed this PS Camera Mount.
Works great if you have access to a 3D printer (or get it printed by someone)

Any generic tripod should do though you might need to get some sort of adaptor that will allow you to "grip" the camera.

I had a spare set of GoPro attachments, some of which I was able to piece together to screw onto the tripod.

A lot of those links are not working. I wonder would this combo work?

Phot-R Professional Photography 3m Adjustable 3-Section Photo Studio Lightweight Aluminium Light Stand https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00MOM61..._56teCbJ7R3X08

And

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WFNNNCC..._ZMteCbPE535K8

Anyone know a good combo that works? I'm not familiar with the light stand attachment head..

Ordered it... Cheers!

I have a curtain rail about 9 foot high behind the TV. Would this be too high for the camera?
