As fun as it is to fire up your favorite sports video game on a gaming console or PC, it doesn’t hold a candle to jumping into the action in a virtual setting. But there are several common mistakes one can make when setting up a multi-sport simulator that you want to avoid.
Not Measuring the Room Thoroughly
The most significant mistake of any sports simulator setup is not measuring the room first. Putting it in tight quarters can ruin the joy of using a simulator. It would help if you accounted for the room’s projector, screen, and other equipment before you set up shop. Measure all aspects of the room, including the width, height, and depth, to get the complete picture.
The Way You Move
You must measure the room to ensure enough space for the simulator. However, that’s only one part of the puzzle. You may have room to install the device, but not enough space for you to move naturally. You don’t want to take a chunk of your ceiling out with a golf swing or bang the wall with a regular baseball swing. Go through each sport and make some trial motions to see if there are any obstructions.
Accounting for Different People
There could be a disparity between your height and other people’s. While setting up a simulator that accommodates your size may make you happy, it may not work for a six-and-a-half-foot-tall buddy or your kids. Take everyone you know into account when you set things up and cover all your bases so everyone can enjoy the sports simulator.
What makes sports simulators so much fun is how much they can mirror the real thing. Opting for the wrong software that produces inconsistent results is the fastest way to ensure your simulator is now a movie projector.
