Very cool discovery !

Virtual Desktop is ABSOLUTELY amazing !!

There is a desktop version for Oculus Rift -s

And a mobile versioin for Gear VR, Oculus Go and Oculus Quest !

Virtual Desktop allows you to play EVERYTHING that exists on your PC.
PC games, Steam Games, Movies ( including /3D movies) and most importantly you can
play Steam VR games ( Including BAM VR)

You can of course play MAME and all your emulaters this way too :shock:

Oculus restricted for now the VR port for Go, Quest and Gear VR but you can get around this by Sideloading the app.

I recently updated my PC to an I7-4790 , 3.6 gHz, 10 G Ram, Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti with 4 G Ram and I am using Samsung Galaxy S7 phone with Gear VR 2016 on a 5 G network at home.

I am able to run BAM OVR at full settings !!
The streaming from Virtual Desktop is silky smooth !!

So I can play FP wirelessly from anywhere in my home and you can even play it remotely from any location....

If you get tired of the AMAZING BAM VR, you can also use virtual desktop to play regular BAM.

It also is a VERY Cool as you can play in many environments on Large Screens
(Auditorium, Cinema, Home Theatre etc..)

I love my BB8 Ball :lol: Thanks DJlunchbox for inspiring it !

So this begs the question ?

Which VR headset is best for BAM ?

Each has its benefit and probably the initial choice will be wireless or
Teathered.

Wireless gives freedom from the cumbersome wire harnesses but teathered yields the smoothest VR....

Oculus quest and rift-s cost the same.
Quest is the only wireless with positional tracking

If you already have a samsung phone.. then Gear vr is a great starting experiance....

I am trying to decide if 549 dollars CDN is warranted for an oculus quest or rift -s
I already can vr on my phone and I dont wish to jump down the rabbit hole of vr gaming as cool as it may be...but the Quest is admittedly calling....

TerryRed says he has rift -s. You might consult with him. I have thought about it but rift -s would require me to upgrade my graphics card and who knows what else on my PC. Then I would have to buy some eye glasses that fit inside the head set. I tried an Oculus head set once without glasses and couldn't see much.
