I've had a Quest 2 and now have an Index coming. I'd like to use the Index Controllers and trackers wirelessly with the Quest and I've seen videos on how to do this but I'm confused about the dongles you need to buy. Are they Watchman dongles or SteamVR dongles, or are those the same thing?

Anyone really familiar with VRChat performance and how GPU/CPU scaling is? The setup in question is a Ryzen 1600AF @ 4Ghz, 16GB 3200Mhz DDDR4 and an OC'd RX 580. From what I've read it's heavily reliant on single thread IPC. Wondering if a GPU upgrade would benefit more or a CPU upgrade. FWIW the system runs it pretty well but some of the areas with lots of people drag it down.

Really disappointed with Star Wars Squadrons so far. Nothing but trouble to get it running and VR controllers are not supported! What!! Looks like I need to buy a flight stick and maybe set up a keyboard as well?

I play it with a keyboard because I'm used to a certain layout in Freespace, but a gamepad works well too. I would recommend getting a gamepad anyway for the seated sim-type games. I like this one but the cheap ones work fine too. A HOTAS is ideal but expensive if you're getting it just for this game.

Another VR space game worth trying out is House of the Dying Sun. It's very short but has great gameplay and atmosphere.
