    I personally find that the in car dash are a little too blurred for me so being able to look at something else does help

    Reading a little more on this it is nothing that the software people have to do as anything from your pc can be pinned to the oculus screen at any position in the 360 degrees view
    How those widgets react on light changes? do those objects remain bright at night (I mean lit by external diffused light) or they managed somehow seamless composition with emvironment?

    The app "screens" remain as bright as they woudl on your computer screen as in effect that is waht you ar elooking at - they are not affected by the game at all.

    The interesting thing is you can put them anywhere in the virtual environment so I tested yesterday with an app and had the screen at 90 degrees (by my right shoulder ) . I couldn't see the screen unless I moved my head to look out of the window and slightly behind. This way it didn't interfere with my vision but was there if I needed it.

    Yesterday was the first time I used the Oculus ver 2 update so still early days , but I have noticed that the app screen will need to be scaleable if you want to put them in your vision and have them small - the one I used yesterday didn't scale well - but I am sure one of the dash apps on this site does scale and they have shown it sitting over the actual car motec

    The app i suggestet works only with openVR devices, not with Oculus mode
    Just FYI oculus rift does work with openvr in fact it’s the headset I used during the vr development in DashPanel.
    Can just be a bit tricky getting some games to use openvr over the rift sdk!

    For pcars right click the exe and go to properties then set Run this program in compatibility mode for: to Windows 7 to force it to use OpenVR.

    I'm thinking of course of Crewchief, and then vrHive for post race analysis.
    Any other suggestions?
    I just used http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...-telemetry-app with the beta 2 version of Oculus as another window in the VR environment - worked fine . Has the window sat above the car just out of normal eye vision and was able to look up and see the information with no issues. As long as the app runs on the same pc as the VR it works a treat.

    I will review the video to see if it explains the process correctly ( no sound on works pc!) was there any particular part that didn't work for you and are you using the Oculus touch controllers
