CAUTION: OPUS can give you Vertigo!!
« on: December 01, 2012, 09:14:50 AM »
 :-\ That's it for me. That's the clincher. OPUS just gave me strong vertigo sensations. I felt like I was going down and to the right. This came on suddenly and without any indication. I just had to pause, upload this image and look around the room to get my bearings back.

I feel like I'm rotating counter clockwise now as I type this.  :P As you'll see in the image below, I'm actually climbing over 1000 fpm and banking to the left slightly!!



I've NEVER had this happen to me in over 20 years of flight sim experience!! Unreal! I'm getting small tingling sensations and feel perspiration now on the forehead. This is five minutes after stopping the sim. COOL!!!

I'm going back in folks! YOU HAVE TO GET OPUS! But put a bucket next to your seat! Just a suggestion.

Hi Brad,

Yep, I see it all the time when I let people fly my sim a bit....of course it is much more likely at night with the lights out and a 3 screen set up like I have.  Some of my visitors don't last 30 seconds.

Hallo Brad,

+ 1 ! I really enjoy flying around with Opus much more now. I just put a bucket next to me just in case.
Tx for warning.
