Default night time flying looks like dust everywhere

version 2.5


Last night's first night flight in months, I noticed it looked like there was dust everywhere I looked, as though I was looking through a nylon stocking.
Anyone have this happen?


Thank you.

Off the web:
This works I tried it. EDIT: this is not correct it is a problem with Oculus not DCS It's a problem with DCS, I don't need to do this fix for similar environments in other games.
But because night flying graphics are so poor in 2.5 I don't bother flying at night. I read DCS is working on the night flight issues.


It seems since the last update when looking into darkness I see a fine film of what looks like dust particles [see attachment].
I read an online article:
"the need to disable "SPUD" (Oled Mura)"
1- Disable OVRService from Task manager (Services tab)
2- Open Regedit.exe and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software
3- Right click on the Software folder > New > Key and name the new folder "Oculus"
4- Right click on the Oculus folder > New > DWORD 32bit Value and name it UseSpud
5- Set the value to 0
6- Start OVRService again and put on your headset
7- (Probably) be amazed at how everything looks clean and black

Hi all, the green haze when flying night sorties in 2.5 Stable with my Mirage is terrible.

Is the disabling of the SPUD as per fitness88 recommendation the proven solution?

I have seen "turn of deferred Shading" and also resetting NVidia specs.

Can someone say that there is a tried and tested way to remove the MURA from night flights yet?

The registry edit took away 90% of the issue I described having. It takes 1 minute to do and if you don't feel it's doing anything for you just delete the edit.

Glad to help. I've been in communications with the techs at Oculus. They had no idea what I was talking about let alone how to fix it...very strange!

So it's an Oculus issue and not a DCS issue?

Hi all and just to finish off my experience,

I also fly the Gazelle and struggled with the very blurred dash.

It was also due to very poor dark colours but the suggested fix has also worked to sort this out.

The Gazelle’s interior has just come to life after the changes.

Crystal clear dials, interior lights and all that you can see in the cockpit is now so much better.

I would recommend this fix to anyone wanting crisp sharp visuals in VR.

I have even noticed the changes to terrain and weather which are now beautifully clear and crisp.

I thought I would share my system if that also helps.

ASRock Z370 extreme, i7 8700K, GTX 1080ti extreme edition, 32G Vengeance 3200 Ram, cooler master water cooling, 2x250G Evo 960 SSD with one dedicated to DCS and the other for Windows etc, Windows 10 64bit OS, Oculus Rift CV1 and nothing overclocked, full Warthog throttle and joystick HOTAS.

Thanks everyone.
