Default rift s shimmering drives me mad.

Hi guys,


I'm having a lot of fun flying DCS in VR.


However the shimmering is quite annoying and I don't seem to get rid of it.


I used all settings in dcs vr optimization guide.


I use pd 1.5 in Oculus tray tool and used the vr shader mod.


I turned msaa off in game and set msaa in Nvidia control panel.


I have a GTX 2080super and a 9700i with a lot of fast ram.


Am I overlooking sonething here?


I'll try to post my settings in a screenshot later.




Thanks in advance!!

Turning MSAA off and then on in Nvidia Control panel does nothing.
Run 2x MSAA in DCS. AF to 16x.
Still going to get some shimmering though.

I would think with your rig you should be able to run in game MSAA at 2x.
I run resolution of cockpit displays at 512.
Only thing I set in Nvidia Control Panel is " Prefer Maximum Performance".
I leave pre-rendered frames at default of 1.
If that is a Rift S you might want to lower your SS to around 1.3.

My settings:

The shimmering can't be removed unless you have a high resolution VR, such as 4K/eye. You may try the Pimax 8KX VR.

Echoing what other people have said. Use MSAA 2x via the in-game settings, the NVCP setting doesn’t work in DCS VR. Also you might need to lower your PD/SS. Try 1.3 SS via OTT with 2x MSAA.

Thanks guys, I'll give it a try.




I thought msaa in Nvidia inspector was way better than in game settings but ok.


I have ss 1.5 or 1.6 but I don't really see a difference..


I have the vr shader mod installed and use the setting where you can set the anti aliasing for centre of view. Do you guys use that??

This I'm running PD of 1.2 and MSAA 2x.

Setting AF or MSAA out of game via nvidia control panel doesn't work.
Those who think it does fails to notice the fact that it isn't on at all, and of course that brings some perf benefits and they announce it as "better", heck I have been there.

The shader mod does indeed help with performance a lot, but last time I tried it it borked up cockpit canopy reflections something awful when I was over water and went back to regular.

The thing with the shader mod is that you need to go through uninstall / re-install each update even when that goes through utility's like OvGME and stuff.
And even then they can get borked leaving you again with nothing.
It would be far more easier when ED provided a option for a selectable shader for VR.
