    Hi westr

    You can use notepad or notepad++(suggested for editing stuff like this). And I believe its the second line in the HLSL file

    Awesome work , can really crank the settings now . What mask size are odyssey users using ?

    I used .575 for my Odyssey. Seems to work. Not seeing the weird outline like I was when it was at .525

        I just tried this and my performance is much smoother with less VR judder. I really can't tell that much difference in the visuals, it still looks perfectly fine.


        Thanks for this!!

              Theres is txt in the zip that explain how to install, but I need to do one or two thing more that other users said in this thread. I didn’t try it, but OP said that you can run this mod without VR.

                  What program should I get to edit the HMD mask size?

                  Comment


                    anything editing text, like notepad. I use Notepad++

                      Tried that but could not find the values to edit. Where do I get Notepad++ ?

                      Comment


                        the value to edit is on the second line of the text
                        #define MASKSIZE 0.525f // change this to adjust the size of the mask, 0.525f seems to be ok for the Vive

                              Is this GME compatible? Would be nice to be able to quickly enable and disable it again for multiplayer.

                                Strange, I can't notice any difference at all with either MSAA 4x or SSAA 2x enabled. I changed the mask size to 0.54 as per the above post for Odyssey users. I have the PD hardcoded to 130% in SteamVR (because automatic tries to use 200% lol), and I've tried PD in DCS at 1.0 and 1.3 (1.0 should actually be 1.3 PD for me because of SteamVR's PD default).

                                There is a difference in visual quality between DCS PD 1.0 and 1.3 (which will be an actual PD of between 1.3 and 1.69), but I notice no difference in the viewport between the center and the edges. Text readability doesn't change.

                                Any idea what's going on? Also, what's the most effective way in SteamVR to see how my FPS is going? I can't read that frame timing graph

                                  Install text is not clear for someone that doesn't know how.


                                  Tried 2 x to install exactly per directions. Comes up consistently with

                                  a loading error and game will not run unless I remove it.


                                  Those who know what he's talking about in the install file...if you could help us with the "long hand" explanation, filling in the gaps that are assumed knowledge. I would be most grateful.


                                  Love VR and would really like the opportunity to try this mod. But directions as they are now, are for me, mod is unusable.

                                      Actually not - there are two different loading errors - one has to do with the Glass shader and the other has to do with ResolveDepth - and that one has not been solved or temporarily fixed. I have no idea why some of us need a fix and others don't even though we have the same openbeta version od DCS.

                                      It sure would be nice if Kegetys would take a look.

                                        I think both errors are fixed and the fixes are listed in this thread. The glass shader problem occurs when joining MP servers (or maybe any time the M2K is used???) and the ResolveDepth issue occurs when you start DCS yes? At least that's when it was occurring for me.


                                        The solution is in the thread for both.

                                          Could you then please point out the thread entry number (upper right) or at least the page of the ResolveDepth fix - difficult going through all 13 pages.
