Does Yaw VR support motion compensation?


Motion compensation is depending on your headset, not on our simulator. Open VR emulator software and Yaw VR Open VR emulator software support motion compensation on certain brands (currently Index and HTC Vive). Pimax has their own motion compensation solution but for Oculus motion compensation is currently not available. However, this could change from time to time depending on the actual development status of the headset. If motion compensation is not available on your headset you can turn off rotation on Yaw VR and can still enjoy any game with perfect immersion. We are working on to contact all the headset manufacturers and help them to make their HMD motion cancellation compatible.




Can I use counterweighting?


In certain cases, you can if needed, however, we recommend adding not more than 33lbs / 15 kgs.
