  Wacky behavior today
Posted by: cleee - 01-24-2021, 11:54 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I haven't ridden in this app in a while and fired it up today to continue my ride around the Ring of Kerry in Ireland. As soon as I was on the road, I was pedaling at about 50-55 cadence (rehabbing a knee so have to go slow for now) but the RPM on the game shot up to 110 and then for the next minute or so fluctuated between 90-110. Then it took a nosedive down to 54 and I thought it might be some weirdness so I continued on and it shot up again. Then it fell down to nearly 0. Then up again to 50, then back to 100. It was madness. Never once did I changed my slow pace of pedaling. This went on for about 5 minutes so I shut it down.

I closed out and went into "that other bike riding VR app" and it was fine. No issues at all with the sensor bugging out. After a quick ride there, I reloaded VZ and resumed my Kerry ride and the crazypants started up again. Not sure what's happening there. I will hunt for another battery to see if a swap helps, but if the other app is fine, I'm not sure what's up. The ride had been fine so far. I did about 3% of it before today and all was good. Just a heads up.

Hello, I just loaded the vzfit and went on my first ride. When I pedal the bicycle doesnt always move. seems like I have to keep moving my head in order for the bicycle to move. Any help on this would be appreciated.

  Winterstan crashing
Posted by: jcb - 01-19-2021, 01:02 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

Winterstan now frequently crashes for me. The last three times it crashed on the 45 minute game near 40 minutes. It also crashes on sequetial shorter games.

  Steering
Posted by: Salikin - 01-19-2021, 03:18 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

I am having trouble manually steering. It seems to favor moving right and wil automatically veer right, even if I'm trying to go straight. Right turns are easy, but left turns are very difficult. I'm having this trouble on tilt, and lean. Auto steer works just fine, but I can't go where I want that way. I've used a mirror to make sure my headset is not on crooked, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm using an Oculus Quest 2. Is there anyway I can adjust or calibrate the steering? Also, I am using an elliptical but am not having any other issues. I love this app, by the way.

  balsaboy's Baie Saint Paul to Tadoussac (Quebec Canada)
Posted by: balsaboy - 01-18-2021, 02:19 AM - Forum: Ride Reviews - No Replies

I made this route as a way to remember a beautiful car trip I took with my wife a few summers ago.

This route (77miles 125km) begins at Baie Saint Paul and runs alongside the St. Lawrence River, through Quebec's Charlevoix Region to Tadoussac, and is known as one of Canada’s most scenic drives. With the Laurentian Mountains on the north and the river on the south, this drive takes you up and down rolling hills, through picturesque villages and along the riverfront with a constantly changing countryside to take in as you ride. The landscape is the result of a massive meteorite that crashed down 350 million years ago and created a deep crater nearly 55km (34 miles) in diameter.

In real life you can often pull to the side and spot beluga whales swimming in the St. Lawrence.

At any rate, I thoroughly enjoyed biking the route in VR, and hope you may enjoy it too!

  Can more Difficulty levels be added?
Posted by: smullins_us - 01-17-2021, 07:00 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (4)

Good evening,

I think right now, the difficulty levels range from 1 to 8. I utilize "1" frequently on downhills and "5" to "8" on uphills and higher altitudes. I also increase my real-world trainer magnetic resistance on the uphills to 5, 8, 12 or even up to a maximum "16" (out of the saddle on the latter ones). Conversely, on the downhills or flat areas, I use magnetic resistance between "2" to "6." I sure could use some additional difficulty levels above "8" in the simulation - visually (and mph) I am simply moving too fast on some of these steeper hills. In the real-world for some of these hills or mountain climbs, I would not be able to go 18 to 21 mph. Slowing the simulation speed down further would help balance things out.

Also, when I hit higher elevations in the real-world, I have to start slowing down on uphills - some around 5,000 to 8,500 and lots around 10,200 and above.

Thanks for considering this.

v/r,
Steve Mullins

  How do you delete rides
Posted by: gidmoose - 01-16-2021, 06:56 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

I went to the manage rides screen, and I'd like to delete a few that I had created with mymaps.google.com and then uploaded.

For instance, there was one I ride near Mount Whitney (the Highest mountain in the lower 48 states), which when you start riding is just blue.   There's no land in any direction.
There are two others I created - Bryce Canyon and also The Grand Tetons, which have no pictures at all on the thumbnails, and a message that they can't be explored.

Apart from that, I really do like VZfit.

I notice flaws, like walls of scenery that suddenly end, or scenery that seems totally flat and depth free, or when I climbed the "Pikes Peak Colorado" road, the scenery off the mountain was often compressed to about an inch high.   (There were a few exceptions).    There is also a tendency - perhaps when the road dips, to suddenly seem as if you are cycling into the air.

Maybe these problems will be fixed one day, but if they depend on the depth finders of Google cars, perhaps they can't be fixed.

Anyway, back to the question - is there a way to delete your own rides?

Thanks.

  snapshots during rides
Posted by: gidmoose - 01-13-2021, 10:13 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

When you take a snapshot on a ride, you get a picture of a generic rider.   Is there a way to put your face under his helmet?

  Wahoo Kickr Snap or Kinetic Road Machine Control Bike Trainer
Posted by: Daugie - 01-13-2021, 08:52 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

Hello all!

Newbie vzfit rider here. I currently have the Wahoo Kickr Snap, but after reading a bit in the forums, I'm realizing that the lack of FTMS bluetooth connection may prevent me from taking advantage of resistance control in vzfit explore/play. For those of you with the Kinetic Road Machine Control Bike Trainer, how are you liking it with vzfit? Considering returning the Kickr, but want to hear some opinions as well. Also, how does the Road Machine do with connecting to other apps? Thanks!

  Bike routing VS. Car routing on Google
Posted by: chromvis - 01-13-2021, 06:21 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (2)

VZexplorer uses car routing with street view. If you want to ride scenic route it usually sends you around via major highways instead of intended route.
For developers: You should replace car routing option on google maps to bike routing!!!
